The magnificent new The Spa at The Twelve Apostles Hotel has been recognised as one of the world's very best, clinching the SPA Traveller Awards' Best International Hotel Spa award.
This prestigious award adds to the growing list of international accolades for the properties in The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. The Spa at Bushmans Kloof won the Unique Spa category at the 2011 Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Awards; the following year The Spa at The Oyster Box received the Resort/Hotel Spa Category of the same awards ceremony.
These highly regarded awards make a visit to The Spas of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection South Africa a must for any local or international traveller seeking an exceptional spa experience.
The inaugural SPA Traveller Awards reveal some of the world's hidden gems, along with the best romantic getaways, family-friendly destinations and wellbeing retreats. The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is the only South African property to be included on this prestigious international list.
The Twelve Apostles Hotel boasts unparalleled views of its stunning natural surroundings, enough to also clinch the runner-up position in The Spa Traveller Awards Best International Spa with a View category.
"Carved out of the mountain, set between the towering Twelve Apostles mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean, this dazzling white space offers a nurturing, soothing haven that looks to air and light as its elemental references," says Horst Frehse, General Manager of The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa.
The recently refurbished Spa was designed by Toni Tollman, whose family owns this award-winning Red Carnation Hotel Collection of boutique properties. It features seven superbly equipped treatment rooms for dual and single treatments with a hydrotherapy bath and rain showers, as well as a Rasul Chamber for traditional cleansing rituals using steam and mud, a Perfect Finish Salon for manicures and pedicures, a Tranquillity Lounge and Wild Lanyana Aromatherm Room for hydrotherapy treatments, or a Vichy Shower.
The Spa's sparkling white interiors use natural stone, marble, granite and glass to create a textured feeling throughout, embracing the energy of the sea and mountain. The Spa's exclusive range of B|Africa products, inspired by the natural surroundings of all three Red Carnation Hotel Collection properties in South Africa - The Twelve Apostles Hotel, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve Wellness Retreat and The Oyster Box - is another pampering touch.
"We'd like to extend hearty congratulations and heartfelt thanks to our fantastic Spa team, for their dedication to their customers and their commitment to excellence," says Toni Tollman. "We are immensely proud of our beautiful new Spa, and thrilled that our guests clearly love it as much as we do."
The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa was also included in the Condé Nast Traveler's 2011 Readers Choice Awards, Top 20 Hotels for Africa/Middle East.
