Santé Overnight Spa Getaway: The Ultimate Retreat


For an all-over reset and pamper, this award-winning Winelands retreat hits the spot.

For a spa treatment to truly do what it’s meant to – that is, leave you feeling glowing, gorgeous, recharged and relaxed long after leaving your slippers and bathrobe behind – it needs to take place in the most soothing and unhurried of settings.

Santé Spa Paarl

The Overnight Spa Getaway at the Santé Wellness Retreat & Spa – which includes accommodation in a suite of your choice, all meals, three treatments and access to Santé’s world-class facilities – not only spoils you with a choice of top-to-toe therapies but also allows you to feel completely at home in this heavenly setting, complete with a lavishly sized room, soulful food and activities that promote slowing down.

Santé Spa Paarl Winelands

An almost-instant sense of calm takes hold when you check in thanks to the breathtaking mountain views from your bed, and all the personalised details of your tailormade stay. And that’s before you’ve even stepped into a treatment room…

The accommodation

Santé Spa Accommodation Paarl

A premium member of Healing Hotels of The World, Santé offers next-level luxury at every turn. To ensure each spa treatment is maximised, every suite is designed and decorated to envelop you in complete comfort.

From double walk-in showers to crisp, exquisite linens and plush towels – as well as Santé’s signature natural amenities on tap – superior quality is the baseline. Intuitive touches such as double basins, oversized bathtubs and blackout curtains feature throughout.

The treatments

Santé Spa Pool

Whether you’re here to destress, detox, recharge (or get some help in the and anti-ageing department), you’ll be spoilt for choice with the most sublime range of effective and relaxing treatments.

Choose from various body therapies (from mud peels and scrubs to enzyme peels that leave your skin baby-soft), specialised facials and massages tailored to your needs – or be guided by the expert advice of your therapist for the ultimate combination of treatments to heal your needs and niggles.

The unique Pro-Sleep Massage, which combines the use of soft mask brushes and Santé’s Tranquillity oil, is just the ticket to kick off this heavenly stay and sets the tone for a profoundly relaxed second day of treatments. You’ll also have access to Santé’s state-of-the-art hydrotherapy facilities, indoor heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and more.

The food

Santé Spa Retreat Dining

With an emphasis on holistic wellbeing, the overnight package extends to three delectable meals showcasing Santé’s nourishing cuisine.

From beetroot tartare with spekboom and pan-seared Cape salmon with sweet-potato dauphine for dinner to a featherlight egg-white omelette with baby spinach for breakfast and grilled ostrich fillet with perfectly spiced dukkah for lunch, the food is simply delicious. Not to mention the carrot-and-ginger sorbet and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate-mousse sphere.

It’s hard to believe that everything is prepared without the use of any sugar, dairy, gluten, colourants or preservatives, but with farm-fresh produce and organic ingredients informing the gourmet dishes, there’s no shortage of flavour.

The deal

Santé Spa Overnight Special
