Santé Hotel & Spa is an enchanting Provencal-style establishment set on a working wine estate on the outskirts of the Paarl, in the Cape Winelands. The mighty Simonsberg Mountains make an impressive backdrop of ever-changing hues, while the rows of vineyards cast their own rainbow of colour as the seasons change.
Rows of olive trees and lavender bushes lead to the high arched doors of the Manor House entrance way. Stepping inside, beneath the bright curve of bougainvillea, you are instantly greeted with cool air-conditioning, the calm recital of classical music, and the soapy scents of the spa. At Santé Hotel & Spa, all overnight guests enjoy complimentary access to the spa facilities, which include among other things a gymnasium, Jacuzzi, multi-experience showers, Doctor Fish™ therapies, a unique indoor hydro-pool, and the original “Spafari”, a treatment that appeals to all of your senses and leaves you feeling completely relaxed.
Within the Manor House you’ll find the Olive Cocktail Bar and lounge area, a Billiards Room, and the Debut restaurant where you can enjoy a combination of local delicacies and international trends. Large doorways lead to the Piazza, swimming pool, and reed-lined dam where guests enjoy a paddle on the water.
Accommodation is offered in opulent Manor House Suites that feature king-sized beds (or twins) and open plan four-poster bath tubs. Romeo and Juliet balconies look out over the Winelands and mountains. Set apart from the Manor House, the Spa Suites are most often used for conferences and offer 2 double beds in a cool, yet cosy atmosphere.
Reflecting the beauty of the Winelands both inside and out, Santé Hotel & Spa is an ideal luxury destination for everything from honeymoons and conferences, to spa days and nights of fine wining and dining.
