A Heavenly Spa treatment awaits

Just off Cape Town’s foreshore lies a little gem in the beautiful Westin Hotel. Besides their luxury accommodation and fine dining experiences, the hotel boasts the luxurious Heavenly Spa on the 19th floor. The spa has the most gloriously panoramic views of the harbour and city and offers a whole new standard to comfort. The spa is its own quiet area, cut off from the hustle and bustle of the daily movement in the hotel.

They offer 15 treatment rooms, heated pools, sauna, Jacuzzi, fitness rooms and a relaxing sleep room. The gym is fully equipped and sports views of Signal Hill and the V & A Waterfront. The warmth of the professional therapists makes you feel comfortable instantly. The treatment rooms are carefully designed to make you feel relaxed, with just the right amount of space, light and soft music. The techniques of massages used are a blend of gentle rhythmical stretching and feather-like movements across the body. Body treatment massages start from R690 and these are some of their signature massages:

Heavenly Spa Massage

The use of pure essence of marula and herb infused oils combines with signature 3 stone rituals in a Swedish-style massage. The therapist focuses on areas of muscular tension while aiding relaxation.

Hot Stone Massage

Heated stones are used to massage the body, releasing stress and tension. A combination of massage techniques and the warmth of the stones result in a deeply relaxing and uplifting experience.

Tri-Scented Shea Butter Nugget Massage

This unique ritual was created to encompass the connection of nature and celebrates the circle of life. Small blocks of citrus infused shea butter are placed on different areas of the body, which aids with circulation and results in relaxation. After a gentle, but effective massage the body is left completely relaxed and the skin feels nourished and hydrated.

The blends of oils used in all their treatments are delicately infused so that the body is rejuvenated, but totally relaxed in the process. A sense of calm and tranquility is felt after every treatment.

These therapeutic massages are so invigorating and nourishing. The best part is that every treatment is carefully designed to suit your needs. The Heavenly Spa signature treatments are so unique that they create the perfect symmetry of luxury and well being. Balance is restored and both mind and body are nourished.
