Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a couple’s treatment at one of South Africa’s finest spas.
Set the tone for romance with a pampering couple’s treatment at one of these remarkable spas.

Mangwanani African Spa

Mangwanani African Spa blends two types of ‘feel-good’ – the first, with the creation of spa packages where guests experience true head-to-toe indulgence and the second, which sees the upliftment of rural women through training to become therapists, creating jobs and helping rural families thrive.

Mangwanani African Spa is offering Edgars Club members a very special offer this Valentine's Day – a 20% saving on two couples packages at select Mangwanani African Spas. Pay only R2 999 for a couples retreat full day spa including gift hamper or R1 999 for a moonlight night spa experience including a product gift hamper. Click here for more info. Ts & Cs apply.

de’Vara Day Spa
(Blouberg, Cape Town)

There are plenty of spas with great ambience, but few can boast this type of view. The vista that unfolds before you from the 11th floor of a Blouberg beachfront building during your pamper session can’t help but add to the feeling of tranquillity, with Table Mountain as the backdrop, across the bay.

Indulge in a couple’s treatment in one of their two double treatment rooms and then sip a glass of bubbles as you take in the views. There’s also a sea-facing manicure and pedicure room, a relaxation area with an infra-red sauna, a stylish dining area, and guests also have access to the roof-top pool and gym area.

Their two-hour Ocean Detox treatment includes detox tea, a full-body exfoliation, full-body drainage massage, detoxifying body wrap and infra-red sauna and costs R790 per person.

Life Day Spa
(Across Gauteng and at V&A Waterfront & Century City in Cape Town)

Life Day Spas are always on the cutting edge of spa wellness, often offering treatments as standard that are relatively bespoke on other spa menus. The breadth of their offering caters for just about every wellness need and the contemporary style of each of their properties sets the tone for indulgence.

Each Life Day Spa offers its own specials, like the Couples' Getaway at the scenic Waterfront branch. For R3 700 per couple, you and your other half will be treated to a romantic mud ritual (including sparkling wine), full-body hot stone massage, 60-minute classic skincare treatment – all in a calming and private couple's suite – and a healthy lunch, afterwards.

Shambala Wellness Spas
(Port Elizabeth)

In Tibetan Bhuddist Lore, Shambala is a mystical place of tranquillity, happiness and peace, shrouded in the snowy peaks of the Himalayas. There, people labour constantly, exclusively and selflessly for the good of humanity.

Translating that ethos to a peaceful property in Port Elizabeth, the team at Shambala Wellness Spas have a focus on holistic wellness and employ top-quality products and techniques to restore body, soul and mind.

They offer a number of couples’ packages on their Spa Menu, with the 105-minute Couple's Bespoke treatment offering great value at R1 490 per couple. It includes a starlight Rasul Steam Chamber treatment with body mask, followed by a side-by-side full-body massage in one of their couple's suites.

The Spa at Brahman Hills
(KZN Midlands)

The otherworldly KZN Midlands seems like the perfect setting for a spa, with its slow pace, rolling hills and moody vistas – which is probably why a number of treatment facilities have made the area their home.

Certainly one of the most stylish is The Spa at Brahman Hills, in the heart of the Meander. The property itself offers hotel or self-catering accommodation with a restaurant, coffee bar, eventing venues, a cellar and underground bar – but the spa, with its quirky porthole windows, is a destination all on its own.

For a properly romantic getaway, the Couples' Spa Pamper Stay Over Package, includes two nights’ accommodation in the slick hotel with breakfast, detox snack on arrival at the spa and a choice of four treatments, for R4 996 per couple sharing.
