Stepping into the finely furnished, subtly decorated Delaire Graff Spa prompts an immediate sense of calm. Situated on Botmaskop Mountain overlooking the Stellenbosch Valley, the spa has engineered a holistic approach to beauty and relaxation; a space where mind, body and soul are collectively considered.

Attentive to detail and administered by knowledgeable staff, each treatment is a luxurious escape from reality. Living in an age where our every minute is demanding, there is nothing quite as necessary – or rejuvenating – as investing in a day of self-nurturance and care. And in every possible way, this spa ensures it.

Having undergone a rejuvenating treatment of its own late last year, the spa menu as well as some of the facilities are flaunting a considered revival. Choose from all-day rituals, pampering wellness massages – from express cleanses to deep tissue therapies – specialised facials and maintenance, not to mention advanced skincare treatments. Globally renowned beauty, body and skincare products set the spa's wellness menu apart, offering revolutionary facials and advanced molecular cosmetics that are hard to match elsewhere. (Opt for the diamond tip microdermabrasion, or, courtesy of internationally acclaimed anti-ageing guru Dr Barbara Sturm, the resculpting lift facial and micro-needling.) Treatments also include products administered by Aromatherapy Associates, Swiss Perfection and well-loved African organic skincare range, Terres d’Afrique. 

Bringing knowledge and her own sense of enviable calm to the wellness centre, Delaire Graff's spa manager Hildegard Carstens leads a team of specialists who ensure that every treatment is memorable. Guests are welcomed into a relaxation lounge, where they can unwind before being accompanied into one of five luxury suites complemented with warm laundered towels and soft linen. 

Visitors indulging in half- or full-day packages – the Journey package is a popular choice – are also invited to make use of the infinity pool and jacuzzi overlooking the Helshoogte Pass and Simonsberg Mountains, as well as the recently revamped Swedish sauna and steam room. Indochine Restaurant, adjacent to the spa, has created the perfect menu to match the bespoke wellness offering, not to mention an Afro-Asian high tea (available to book in advance with any 60-minute treatment). Expect fresh, light and deliciously healthy dishes, featuring vegan and pescatarian options that align with the spa's holistic focus.
