Some of the other amazing treatments on offer at this luxury resort include the Anne Semonin and Ligne St Barth as these are only available here, at the Arabella Spa. The Anne Semonin treatment collection mixes a blend of aromatic essential oils, trace elements and marine extracts with a classic French touch. On the other hand, the Ligne St Barth treatments gently rebuild natural skin regeneration, nurture intensively and provide tender loving care for the soul.

After indulging in one of these spectacular treatments, then guests are invited to relax and cool off in the indoor heated hydro-pool or in the outdoor sauna. They also have the chance to lounge in the steam room and the crystalline waters of the swimming pool at no additional cost.

At the Arabella Estate close to Kleinmond, I had one of the most exquisite experiences in the hospitality Industry.

Upon arrival one feels special, even Celebratory. The Room-service is punctual and personal, while the dining was reminiscent of world class VIP treatement. Every roon in the hotel has the most delightful private view over the man-made waterfalls which characterises the essence of Arabella.

This is a highly reccommended stay in one of the most beautiful locations in the Overberg.
