A mere hour out of Cape Town, flanked by the Simonsberg Mountains of the Franschoek winelands, lies the Santé Hotel, Resort & Spa. This is a truly amazing place if you are in need of a getaway – especially this time of year. This part of the winelands is so breathtaking that you’ll immediately be transported into a state of complete relaxation.

Be treated to impeccable manor suites, which overlook well-manicured estate grounds. The rooms are just exquisite, with amazing amenities which screams luxury. I especially loved the room service, the soft beds and the in-room jacuzzi.

If you can manage to leave your beautiful room, try to visit their flagship restaurant Debut for haute cuisine, which combines local delicacies like Kudu paired with international foodie trends. They also have a lovely bar and lounge area for those in need of an extra cocktail.

The resort also hosts a number of stand-alone houses for holiday rent and exquisite conference facilities.

For a well-rounded experience be rejuvenated in their fully equipped spa. I tried the Vinaqua Vino treatment. I revelled in the healing powers of a grape seed extract bath, which leaves you detoxed and you skin as smooth as silk. Definitely a must!
