This holistic Wellness Center sits on a 160-hectare working wine estate in the Paarl/Franschhoek Valley in South Africa. The Bakwena Spa at Santé offers true vinothérapie treatments like the Pinotage Vino-Bath Treatment or the Vichy/Hammam Ceremony, which includes a grape seed exfoliation and Merlot-infused foam massage. There is an optional additional "Mr. Nibble" treatment, in which small fish nibble away at the dead skin on your feet and hands. Don't worry though, the treatment is safe (for you and the fishes), and it will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
