Beauty and Alternative Health
Various Centres
Beauty treatments are readily available in Cape Town. Numerous spas, beauty and health centres have opened in recent years, many attached to the top hotels. They offer an impressive selection of therapies including hydrotherapy, 'vinotherapy', rasul, (Turkish steam and clay treatment room), floatation pool, steam room, vichy shower, facials, mud rubs, and Shiatsu, Reiki, Reflexology, etc.

Two of the largest are at The Table Bay Hotel and the Westin, both in or near the Waterfront complex; the 12 Apostles hotel south of Camps Bay has a very impressive beauty centre tunnelled into the mountain side; and the Cape Grace, Vineyard and Mount Nelson have smaller, but exclusive, treatment rooms.

In addition, there are a few hotels that specialise in residential spa and beauty treatments. Some of these centres are the Romney Park in Greenpoint, and Stillness Manor in Tokai.

The Arabella offers golf and spa facilities near Hermanus, and further afield Fancourt and Pezula have the same combination near the Garden Route.
