Cape Town is fast becoming a favourite destination to pop to for some serious beautifying. Not only is express cosmetic surgery a speciality, but it’s also a hub for holistic medicine. A short drive from Victorian-exterior country-style homestead Schoone Oordt in historic Swellendam, is the new Rainforest Day Spa. Applying a natural approach to health and wellness and first-class botanical products has helped made Rain the darling of New York City sybarites too – and they’re a tough crowd to please. To get a pampering truly in cahoots with nature, hit the thatched Wellness Spa at Etali in Madikwe; here you can enjoy an African ritual in soundtracked by elephants at the waterhole and weaverbirds on the window. Meanwhile, at the Bush Spas at Singita Sweni and Singita Lebombo, monkey oranges are the stars of the show – they rub these dried exotic fruits on your pressure points.
