Spa Review: Heaven at the Heavenly Spa

Recently I was invited to Heaven…  the Heavenly Spa at The Westin Hotel!

Located high on the 19th floor of the hotel, the spa was as close to heaven as one might get… not only because of it’s lofty location, but also due to the serene space, tranquil music and pampering treatments one experiences as a guest…

Aiming to bring balance between outer skin and inner being, the spa offers signature experiences and treatments that are both unique and luxurious, creating the perfect symmetry of luxury and wellbeing.

After a particularly stressful season in my own life, I was only too happy to spend a morning restoring balance to my body and mind with the healing touch of a back, neck and shoulder massage!

The spa’s location has got to be experience at some point. With panoramic views across Cape Town – from the waiting area to the sauna and pool.

The signature treatment I enjoyed is known as the Aspire Massage which uses natural aromatherapy oils and diverse massage techniques to customise a massage to answer one simple question: How do you want to feel? It can be enjoyed for 60 or 90 minutes of cocooned bliss in one of the intimate and private rooms of the spa and I totally blissed out with the aromatherapy scents and almost fell asleep, aided by the very relaxing environments of a dark room and soft music….

Fortunately I didn’t have to rush off after my massage and decided it was imperative that I spent a bit more time soaking up the serenity… so I headed off to enjoy the sauna for as long as I could bear it. My mid-week visit meant I was all alone and could really unwind and relax while watching the world go by – 19 stories below! I had forgotten to pack my swimming costume (NB: it’s always advisable when visiting a spa!) but I still decided a few minutes poolside with my book wouldn’t go amiss!

The Heavenly Spa is running some incredible special offers at the moment. The one that caught my eye is the Winter Warmer special on offer from 1 June – 31 July 2016.

For only R950 you can enjoy a heavenly retreat of your very own. Ideal for Cape Town’s wintery days! Enjoy THREE specially selected treatments that will leave you feeling invigorated and revitalized –  a revitalizing Facial (includes a self heating mask), a luxury foot massage treatment and a back massage with heated stones! Plus access to the spa’s facilities including the iconic indoor heated pool and a sauna with the best view in town!
