One&Only Cape Town voted Best Hotel Spa in Africa and the Middle East
South Africa, Cape Town, 3 July 2013; One&Only Cape Town has scooped Best Hotel Spa in Africa & Middle East in the 2013 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards, confirming it is officially the star Spa in the region.
The good news came from the US-based Travel+Leisure headquarters just yesterday and is a much-appreciated reward for Rosy Read Larsen and her dedicated team – recognition for the many hours put into honing the guest experience at this world-class Spa. Situated on its own island at South Africa’s first and only five-star urban resort, One&Only Spa features an astonishing 1000m2 of Afro-Zen inspired interiors and facilities. With enormous attention to personalised yet discreet service, state-of-the-art equipment, the only Bastien Gonzalez Pedi:Mani:Cure studio in Africa and a menu of outstanding body and beauty treatments, the Spa is well deserving of its stellar reputation.
The Travel + Leisure 2013 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey results recognise the top destinations, hotels, spas, airlines, cruise lines, river cruises, car-rental companies, outfitters and more.
The results are from an annual World’s Best Awards Survey, where readers rate their favourite destinations and travel companies on a variety of characteristics. To have been pitted against (and to have beaten) a large pool of top-notch spas in Africa and the Middle East is testament to the acute care taken to ensure guests receive the best service and treatments available to them at One&Only Spa. “We’ve been open for four years now and it’s wonderful to be rewarded for taking our jobs as seriously as we do”, says Spa Manager Rosy Read Larsen, who together with her team of Spa professionals, has raked in a steady stream of international awards since the Spa first opened its doors.
One&Only Spa is situated at One&Only Cape Town, the African flagship of the world-renowned One&Only resort collection. Boasting spectacular views of Table Mountain, 131 deluxe rooms and suites and two purpose-built islands, this five-star luxury urban resort was the first city-based resort initiated by the brand and since its opening just four years ago in 2009 has achieved outstanding success, receiving a number of local and international awards for its varied world class offerings. Understandably, the resort, situated in the heart of Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, is one of the city’s most desired luxury destinations. The Spa, with its outstanding facilities and offerings is a major drawcard and with its unique blend of discreet service and the best Spa facilities and treatments in the city, it’s no surprise that a large portion of their clientele are repeat guests who feel that their One&Only Cape Town experience is not complete without a visit to the Spa.
