The Award Winning Concept
Now in its second year, the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Sanitas Per Aquas
(S.P.A) Awards was established to honour the flourishing South Africa spa
market and those who excel in their field. This year is the first time that
the Unique Spa Concept Category was introduced, which saw close competition
amongst the six finalists.

Managing Director, Spa Operations, Ravi Chandran says, “We are delighted to
be recognised and honoured by the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques South Africa,
who is working to benchmark the standard of South African spas. This unique
win proves that Asian spa therapies have been well received by local and
international spa aficionados. Angsana Spa will continue to add variety and
cultural diversity to the spa scene in Cape Town and beyond with
introduction of new treatments and ingredients.”

Asian Rejuvenation Secrets
Angsana Spa’s refreshing blend of treatments place special emphasis on the
use of natural ingredients such as native flowers and fruits. It is based on
the use of aromatherapy, the therapeutic sense of touch, and a fusion of
techniques from the East and West to refresh and rejuvenate the body, mind
and spirit.
In addition, it offers unique therapies such as:

Fusion: A clever blend of Thai and Swedish massage techniques using
Invigorating Oil. The oil unblocks stiffness while stretching enhances
flexibility, banishing muscle aches at the same time.

Ibu’s Secret: Adapted from traditional Balinese techniques, this popular
deep tissue massage soothes aching muscles with warming Melody Oil.

Spa therapists undergo professional training at the Banyan Tree Spa Academy
located in Phuket. A dedicated training facility accredited by Thailand’s
Ministry of Education, the academy trains our therapists to deliver
consistently high quality to meet the expectations of spa enthusiasts.

The Spa comprises 11 spa treatment rooms, including a signature Rainmist
steam room. The interior design and exterior architecture of Angsana is a
spirited juxtaposition that blends contemporary chic with exotic Asian
splendour, with signature Angsana hues of orange, lime green, yellow and
purple in the background.
