Following the 2008 year-long Cape Grace refashioning, The Spa has undergone a facelift of its own. Now incorporating a sense of place more than ever, the existing Spice Route theme has been expanded so that guests can truly indulge in the mysteries of the spices.
Based on Vasco Da Gama’s voyages and trade with exotic lands, The Spa has embraced this history with its new signature 90-minute treatment, Spice Journey, which takes guests on a journey from India to Kenya, Tanzania to Madagascar and Mozambique to South Africa. Beginning with a musk and sandalwood Pre-treatment Rub to relax the muscles and a Fruit Butter Emulsion Scrub to exfoliate the skin, the Spice Journey treatment incorporates a hydrating Honey Soft Earth Mud and a Shower gel with tamarind and lemon, before finishing with a Massage Butter, containing Kigelia Africana, Rooibos and Aloe Vera, and a refreshing Body Mist Spray.
And in celebration of the reopening, the Spa at Cape Grace has also unveiled a new product line, Skin Sphere, with signature products in the body range (including the Spice Journey treatment) and new amenities created with signature scents. This new spa range is made entirely of plant extracts and is not tested on animals.
