Escape to Lanzerac Spa for the Day


We spent a luxurious, restoring day with local beauty blogger, Cathi Trevor, at the newly refurbished Lanzerac Spa, nestled in the heart of the Cape Winelands. 

A devastating fire recently left part of Lanzerac blackened, but luckily no harm was caused to the recently refurbished Lanzerac Spa, which exudes elegance and tranquility. 

Overlooking the towering Joenkershoek Mountains, against a backdrop of rows of lush vineyards, the spa offers superior amenities and unrivalled view and is still a true jewel of the Stellenbosch Wine Route. 

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly spa staff and taken into the changing rooms where we were provided with fluffy gowns before we trotted out to the deck to sip on a glass of bubbly, catch up on missed time and take in the breathtaking views around us. Although we could’ve spent the rest of the day soaking in the surrounds we decided to make the most of our Spa treatment and amenities. 

The treatment rooms and facilities have a distinctly luxurious feel. Sunlight spills into the treatment rooms through beautiful large scale windows, while bringing the spectacular views to the forefront of the spacious, welcoming and airy building. Plus, the beautiful décor of fabric, timber and wallpapers create an eclectic mix of elements. 

We were treated to a 2 hour TheraVine™ Face & Body Glow Experience —  which was a full sensory, soul restoring experience. This treatment includes:

  • A foot cleanse ritual followed by a face and body exfoliation
  • AromaVine™ Pinotage oil face and body massage
  • Moisturising vine embalmment followed by a warm, botanical infused compress

TheraVine™ produces a scientifically advanced range of result-driven health and skincare products. The brand’s formulations consist of many different multi-generational variations and cultivars of grape technologies, using different parts of the grape and vine to benefit the skin in various ways – from signs of the first wrinkles to the reversal of the deepest. We love this product, because not only is it high in antioxidants, but it is also environmentally conscious brand cruelty free, paraben free, and it comes in recyclable packaging. 

After our treatment we spent a few moments of the relaxation in the Jacuzzi and enjoyed a swim in the in-door heated swimming pool. Follow by a delicious Green Juice in the Vitality Corner which serves healthy cuisine, before heading home and back to the reality of our busy lives! 

Lanzerac Spa has a fantastic special running at the moment until the end of October, take a look:
