Arabella Hotel & Spa Wins Les Nouvelles Estetiques Best Hotel Spa 2014

August 2014: Arabella Hotel & Spa has been named Best Spa 2014 in the highly competitive Hotel Spa category by Les Nouvelles Estetiques South Africa in association with Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Paris, a publication “dedicated to the world of spas, well-being and beauty and encompasses all aspects of the spa industry including skincare, bodycare, nails, make-up, haircare, spa therapies and business management”.

The hotel received the accolade at the 10th annual Spa Awards that were held as part of The Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Spa Conference 2014, which was held in Johannesburg.

Dr Nadine de Freitas, Managing Editor, Les Nouvelles Esthetiques, South Africa, is quoted as saying: “Spas offer a precious refuge from a frenzied lifestyle. A time and place to relax and disconnect from the world as you recharge your mind, body and spirit, and an opportunity to bring your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves back into alignment.”

Mark Satterfield, Marriott International’s business leader in South Africa, says that is precisely the atmosphere that the STAFF at the hotel’s spa works hard to create.

“That atmosphere of absolute relaxation in beautiful surroundings, coupled with superbly trained beauty and therapy STAFF, is what has led to this award. The quality of the spa matches that of the hotel and it is a credit to the African Pride Hotels brand.”

The Arabella Hotel Spa offers a range of treatments, including the signature African Rainforest Experience, which has received worldwide acclaim.

The Arabella Hotel & Spa is situated just over an hour's drive from Cape Town. It is near the southernmost tip of Africa, Cape Agulhas, and on the outskirts from South Africa’s whale-watching capital, Hermanus. Southern Right whales spend approximately six months of the year on the southern African coast (May to November) and Hermanus is arguably the world’s best land-based whale watching location. The area is also famous for Great White Shark cage diving, and for its pristine fynbos in the Koegelberg Biosphere Reserve. South Africa’s celebrated Winelands region is less than an hour’s drive away.
