Santé Hotel and Spa in South Africa's Paarl/Franschhoek Valley offers true vinotherapy treatments


Bakwena Spa
Santé Hotel and Spa

This holistic wellness center sits on a 395-acre working wine estate in the Paarl/Franschhoek Valley in South Africa. The Bakwena Spa at Santé offers true vinotherapy programs like the Vino-Therapeutic Body Therapy or the Deluxe Spa Ritual, which includes a foot bath, Pinotage body massage and customized facial. There is also a unique Mr. Nibble treatment, in which small fish lightly eat away the dead skin on your feet and hands. Don't worry though, the treatment is safe (for you and the fish), and it will leave your skin feeling silky-smooth.
