Spa Day At Delaire Graff


Nestled between  majestic  mountains and  overlooking  the vineyards  of  Stellenbosch, Delaire  Graff  Estate is  South  Africa’s most  desirable  wine, hospitality  and  art destination.  The  magnificent Cape  Winelands  property boasts  two outstanding restaurants, a state-of-the-art winery, exclusive Lodges and Villa, a destination Spa and luxury  boutiques.

Delaire Graff Estate has been on our list of wine farms to visit for a very very  long time. Our interest partnered with the news of the estate launching  a  bespoke wellness  menu  and revitalised  facilities, left us no option but to book the day off and head to the majestic Botmaskop Mountain to discover the true essence of relaxation and try out their new signature spa treatments and a 3-course lunch at Indochine.

Our experience:


Upon arrival at the estate we were welcomed by a friendly team who escorted us to the spa lounge area where the journey to our luxurious day of wellbeing begun. The Afro-Asian inspired spa is a tranquil haven that led us to forget all our petty pleb problems and surrender to the serene settings and get lost in the innovative  treatments which involved rituals using  the  finest range  of  internationally recognised beauty  products.

“The  Delaire  Graff Spa  offers  a holistic  experience  from beginning  to  end, where  our  ultimate goal  is  to transform  and  heal”,  says Hildegard  Carstens,  Delaire Graff  Estate’s  new Spa  Manager.

It was hard for us to select our treatments as every treatment is just as inviting as the next. The Spa menu consists of the finest holistic healing rituals drawing inspiration from  ancient  Eastern philosophies, designed  to  leave the  body,  mind  and  soul glowing… we chose the following treatments below:

Terres D’Afrique Deep Tissue:

“Without a doubt the best deep tissue massage that I have ever received. I am incredibly picky when it comes to massage pressure and often struggle to find a therapist who can dig into all the knots, aches and pains… The special touch of petrified wooden tools and warm baobab pindas was what really made this treatment so unique and unforgettable.”  Marisa

Black Pearl Body Illumination Therapy:

“This treatment was a trio of spoils, it started off with a full body polish, using a lemon grass scented scrub that smelt like heaven. Then a firm and deep back and neck massage – pressure was to perfection. Then to end it all off I was  to the Rolls Royce of all facials  – the 24 Kt gold Black Pearl facial, using only the most lavish ingredients  including organic  oils,  diamond dust,  nano  gold and  collagen – I finally got the pregnancy glow that everyone’s been talking about…  it only took 9 months.” Nicole
