The Heavenly Spa at the Westin is definitely one of the best-appointed spas in Cape Town.
Located on the top floor of the Westin Hotel, the Heavenly Spa offers panoramic views over Cape Town city and the Atlantic ocean.
Being mid-winter I chose to treat my skin to a hydrating facial to boost hydration levels.
Using Babor products from Germany, which were developed 60 years ago, many of the ingredients come from the natural world of plants and are obtained from fair-trade sources and organically grown.
Each facial is customised according to skin type using products that include specialised boosters and serums containing active peptides.
The treatment begins cleansing, exfoliating and extraction under a gentle steam.
After this, a hydrating oil is applied using pressure point movements, followed by a hydrating massage balm which is applied using gentle movements to promote lymphatic drainage. A moisturising cream mask is left on the skin for 10 minutes.
