It is no secret that working regular acts of self-care into our calendars is crucial to managing stress and exhaustion. This can also be improved by sharing tangible, experiential moments which contribute to our overall physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Steenberg Hotel & Spa is making it easy to fulfil all your self-care needs with two exceptional summer experiences.
In an interview with Condé Nast Traveller, co-founder of K’Alma Spas in Miami, Marizza Contreras says that “spas are offering treatments that emphasise connecting with natural surroundings,” adding, “natural elements have an abundance of healing properties, and those who are more in-sync with nature tend to have calmer nervous systems, positive attitudes, and a better overall wellbeing.” Cue Steenberg Spa’s summer package, Scented Bliss.
Designed to ease tight muscles and soothe stress, the package for two unfolds in the hotel’s Scented Garden and comprises a side-by-side Herbal Oil Massage, Pressure Point Foot Massage, and Scalp Ritual at R2 450 for 60 minutes or R2 970 for 90 minutes. The secluded haven punctuated by fragrant flora and a towering Oak tree invites you to soak up nature’s scenes, sounds, and scents and segue into a peaceful state. Post-pamper, the Scented Bliss package is superbly concluded with a bottle of crisp Steenberg 1682 Chardonnay Cap Classique and a refreshing dip in the pool.
Alternatively, opt for one of the spa’s top three unique massage treatments, each packed with a bevy of benefits. For pain relief and immune boosting, Steenberg Spa manager, Monique Pereira recommends the CBD Wellness Journey; for circulation and toxin elimination pick the Bellabaci Signature Massage; or for fatigue and insomnia, the Muscle and Joint Magnesium Therapy Massage is the way to go.
Following a Scented Garden treatment, Chef, Clement Pedro and his wife, Megan Pedro, say it is a must for anyone looking to have a one-of-a-kind wellness experience. “Privately Nestled in a space only Mother Nature could curate, the outdoor Scented Garden therapy is a massage experience like no other. My treatment expert found every knot and tense muscle in my body and masterfully relieved them,” Pedro comments, adding, “As a chef, I like to compare my life experiences to food and in this case I entered as tense and tough as a minute steak but left as tender as an A5 Wagyu Beef Fillet!”
An all-encompassing sensory journey at Steenberg would not be complete without delighting your tastebuds. Steenberg has just introduced a new and exclusive summertime Scented Garden dining experience to entice the palate. Stroll through the abundant hotel gardens before arriving at your private dining destination for the evening. At R1 250 per person, the candlelit deck sets the scene for an ambient three-course meal under the stars, emphasised by the gentle sounds of trickling water from the garden’s water feature.
From a tantalising amuse bouche to a sumptuous selection of mains and delectable desserts, expect a refined array of dishes, including cranberry and hibiscus-glazed duck to ethically-sourced fish topped with mint and pineapple salsa. Complete your meal with a citrus infused soft honey sponge and crystalised ginger ice cream, served by your personal Tryn host. Each plate manifests a balanced combination of fresh, locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients pre-selected by Steenberg’s Executive Chef, Kerry Kilpin, who ensures every flavour pairs perfectly with Steenberg’s award-winning wines. Between bites of flavourful fare, toast to more time for intermittent, intentional moments of calm in 2023!
