Ginkgo Luxury Spa at The Arniston Hotel
Arniston, South Africa
The spa’s ambience is minimalist, crisp, fresh and enchanting. From the moment, you open the door and follow the stars into the welcoming reception area, to the time you leave – pampered, de-stressed and feeling like a new person, the outside world simply doesn’t exist.
The Spa has four spacious treatment rooms, a male and a female Sauna and Hydrotherapy. The Twin Treatment Room is the ultimate in couple’s therapy. The Tranquillity Lounge calms and induces gentle rhythms of blissful peace.
The ambience is other worldly – diffused lighting, the palest of azure throughout with sand coloured floors, white leather furniture and the soft sound of water coming from the eye-catching cascade. The paintings were especially commissioned and add to the overall warmth that exudes from every corner of the Spa. The artist, Karl-Otto Krug from Germany, took Georgia O’Keefe as his inspiration when he painted his masterpieces.
An enjoyable two-hour drive to Arniston with the road winding over the beautiful rolling hills of the Overberg, through attractive wheat fields, sheep grazing and scenic villages makes the journey pass very quickly.
