A new year, a new you: Experience a wellness reset at Steenberg Spa

Situated in the heart of Constantia, the acclaimed Steenberg Spa is the very picture of serenity. Surrounded by sprawling vineyards, lush gardens, and the Cape’s iconic mountains beyond, it’s a complete escape from city life, where body and mind find unparalleled rejuvenation and healing at the hands of skilled and attentive spa therapists, and 5-star luxury treatments.

Having recently undergone a design makeover, the Spa is beautifully appointed, with a new treatment room for couples, a re-modelled reception area, as well as a re-imagined waiting room. The space exudes quiet and calm luxury from every corner, so that every moment spent is one of rejuvenation, indulgence, and wellness. Leading experts and spa therapists have carefully tailored the treatment menu to elevate physical and mental relaxation, with renowned products that awaken all the senses through touch.
For the summer months, there are transformative treatments available, including the ‘Magnesium Magic Massage’ which energises the body and relieves fatigue and pain, while the ‘Breath of Life Massage’ includes specialised stretching that stimulates circulation and flexibility. The ‘QMS Collagen Recovery Facial’ uses advanced anti-aging therapy that restores and refreshes the face, and the ‘ila Ananda Facial’ fully nourishes and hydrates tired skin for a healthy and glowing complexion.

From the Spa, follow a quiet pathway to discover a hidden sanctuary, where you will be swept away in all the breath-taking natural beauty that the estate has to offer. Nestled between lush flowers and foliage are two secluded treatment areas: the Scented Garden, as well as the newly-unveiled Secret Garden. Here, therapeutic massage packages like ‘Scented Bliss’ unlocks the power of herbal oils through a body, foot and scalp massage, while ‘Romantic Escape’ whisks couples away in a dreamy state of quietude.
The harmony between the outdoors and the 5-star treatments makes these spaces a truly one-of-a-kind holistic healing experience.

Booking treatments over the value of R2000 will also grant you access to the Pool House, where the soothing sounds of cascading water, indigenous birds, and gentle music create a tranquil atmosphere. Submerge yourself in the cool depths of the pool, or recline on the lounge chairs and bathe in the afternoon sunlight. The newly-launched Mobile Bar, adorned with a mesmerising scaled motif that shimmers in tones of vibrant oranges, pinks and metallics, exudes elegance and offers bespoke cocktails by Tryn to enjoy beside the pool or on the Sun Lawn. Inside the Pool House, every trouble and thought melt away with specialised Margaret Dabbs manicures and pedicures.
As the day winds down, an intimate retail experience awaits to conclude your visit to the Spa. Browse a curated range of items from beloved South African fashion designer Kat van Duinen, a dazzling selection of jewellery from Hue Studio, or shop products from your treatments, including ila, Margaret Dabbs, and Bio Sculpture. For those looking to indulge after a day of repose, the experience at Steenberg continues with Tryn just a few steps away, where the summer menu is ready to take you on a sensational culinary journey. Dine as you watch as Golden Hour approaches on either the Vineyard Terrace which overlooks the vineyards and mountains of the Constantia winelands, or the Oak Terrace which overlooks the Hotel’s blossoming flower beds and ancient trees.

A day at the Spa promises a sense of profound relaxation, where your body feels nurtured and grounded, and your mind feels a sense of lightness and ease. Steenberg Spa gives you every reason to celebrate a new year – and a new you – with its exquisite setting and treatments.
