The Heavenly Spa at the Westin Cape Town has once again placed this city on the global forefront, after it was named the 2017 Best Luxury Urban Escape Spa by the World Luxury Spa Awards.

The World Luxury Spa Awards is prestigious and described as the “pinnacle of achievements” for luxury spas, as well as the world’s leading award initiative in this category. Awards are presented to luxury spas in 32 different categories in a country, regional, continental and global basis. About 29 South African spas entered this category.

“We are thrilled by this accolade. It demonstrates our commitment to excellence through an incredible team of therapists who go out of their way to ensure customers are comfortable and well looked after during their stay at our spa,” says Victoria Sutcliffe, manager of the Heavenly Spa.

To Sutcliffe and her team the real value of this award lies in the fact that customers are allowed to nominate and vote for the spa of their choice.

“We do our best to put our guests first and this award is proof of our strive for excellence. We tailor each treatment to suit our clients’ individual needs, and that’s what makes an experience at the Heavenly Spa so unique,” she says.

The Heavenly Spa is located on the 19th floor at the Westin Cape Town, part of Marriott International Inc, and is located in the Cape Town CBD at the gateway to the V&A Waterfront.
