A magical winter getaway at Cape Town’s Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa awaits

Cape Town is synonymous with summer getaways, blissful retreats punctuated by golden beaches and cerulean skies.

But the cooler months in South Africa’s ‘Mother City’ are not without their delights and those in search of an indulgent winter getaway that come without the high season crowds can take advantage of a range of irresistible winter offers, courtesy of one of Cape Town’s premier five-star accommodation offerings, the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa. Whether you’re flying in or simply searching for some pampering close to home, the overnight packages, available from the beginning of April to the end of September 2016, are tailored to suit all occasions.

Weary souls in need of some TLC have a choice of two rejuvenating spa packages. Spa Winter Glow offers a personalised wellness experience – think a warming ‘soup of the day’ and a glass of wine, followed by one of three indulgent 60-minute treatments: both a manicure and pedicure, a Harmonised body treatment or an Elemis facial. We recommend splashing out a little extra and enjoying the mani-pedi or Harmonised treatment in the striking spa mountain gazebos overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Combine this with a relaxing stay in one of The Twelve Apostles’ elegant rooms or suites, plus full English breakfast with freshly harvested oysters and sparkling wine the following morning, and suddenly even the chill in the air will feel invigorating.

The Detox & Delight package allows for important ‘time out’ and includes a detoxifying 60-minute treatment in the spa’s traditional Rasul chamber, during which mineral-rich mud, steam and heat are blissfully combined to provide a cleansing, rejuvenating experience to revitalise both body and mind. Guests can then tuck into a light spa lunch, before retreating to their cosy room for a restful night’s sleep. Round it off in sumptuous style with a full English breakfast with freshly harvested oysters and sparkling wine the next morning.

For a luxurious spin on a traditional romantic night out, take in a three-course meal at The Azure Restaurant, then settle into the hotel’s 16-seater cinema to catch a beloved classic or the latest blockbuster. A selection of treats, including popcorn, sweets and a rich hot chocolate or milkshake of the day make for an authentic movie experience reminiscent of teenage years, but with sophisticated surrounding. We suggest turning your special date night into an overnight experience by checking into one of The Twelve Apostles Hotel’s romantic suites.

Or linger even longer and book the Hibernate to Rejuvenate package (two-night minimum), which includes accommodation, breakfast, a 40-minute head and shoulder massage and a one-hour session in the spa’s hot- and cold-water plunge pools and salt-water floatation pool.
