Treatment & facilities: Situated on its own private island within a luxurious hotel, the One&Only Spa Island is a serene environment surrounded by calm waters and lush vegetation. The architecture mixes traditional African influences with contemporary design, resulting in a modern space that blends seamlessly into its environment. Alongside its 12 treatment rooms, guests have access to a sauna, aroma-steam rooms, private wet areas, and two vitality pools.
Signature treatments: The spa offers several exclusive treatments, including the Table Mountain Tonic, a two-hour immersive experience that harnesses the power of local and indigenous to alleviate muscle tension and melt away stresses and strains. It begins with a full body exfoliation and is followed by the warmed poultice massage to key areas of tension found in the body.
