Santé Wellness Retreat & Spa in the Cape Winelands has triumphed at both the Haute Grandeur Excellence Awards™ held in Kuala Lumpur recently, as well as the 5th World Spa Awards™, which took place in Dubai on 21 October.
At the 2019 Haute Grandeur Excellence Awards™, Santé took home the prizes for Best Country Spa on a Global Level and Best Boutique Spa in Africa.
Santé also won the awards for Africa's Best Day Spa and South Africa's Best Wellness Retreat at the World Spa Awards™.
Says Santé CEO, Ingrid Hindle: “We are both humbled and honoured for Santé to have won these four prestigious awards – particularly as it has been only 18 months since we opened.
“The awards give us confirmation that the offering at Santé – in the Day Spa as well as across the entire Wellness Retreat – is of a very high standard, effective and well received and appreciated by our guests.
“This international recognition is hugely important as South Africa is not generally well known or recognised as a wellness destination. These awards will definitely help in the journey to change that perception and will hopefully assist in bringing additional international wellness travellers and tourists to our beautiful country.”
Since opening, Santé has developed a reputation for delivering holistic wellness services that are a blend of art, science, high-tech and high-touch, in a luxurious sanctuary.
Drawing upon the vision and experience of its team, with input from relevant experts, Santé offers comprehensive wellness programmes for guests. These range from three to 14 days and include targeted therapies for de-stressing, rejuvenation, detox, the promotion of healthy ageing and healthy weight loss.
In aid of these goals, Santé employs a spectrum of techniques and technologies that are attentively delivered at the Health Optimizing Clinic, Bio-Energy Centre, and Day Spa. Additionally, the programmes are supported by optimal nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle advice in order to holistically achieve the most effective and lasting mental and physical results.
