Fodor's Expert Review One&Only Spa
This artfully designed spa exudes pampered exclusivity of the type intended for the rich and famous. On a private island and part of a swank resort within the V&A Waterfront, its contemporary-minimalist African- and Japanese-influenced treatment rooms look out onto Table Mountain and lush gardens. Clients are handed tea or pure pomegranate juice upon arrival, and the relaxation room is stocked with beverages, dried fruit, and nuts. The sole purveyor of ESPA products in Africa, this spa also offers manicures and pedicures by the famous Bastien Gonzalez. The highly relaxing Essence of Earth and Ocean Experience combines seaweed and ocean salt with ESPA products. Leave time to enjoy the vitality pool, steam room, sauna (with an ice fountain right outside), and relaxation time in the gardens.
