FRESH WELLNESS...and a huge delicious lunch!

We have been complaining about winter for the last 3 months.....well, it looks like Summer in Cape Town may have not been canceled after all! the gardens at the Cellars Hohenort were looking amazing this week...
So I decided (with my dear friend Carol!) it was time to get pampered and check out the newly  relaunched  Fresh Wellness Spa at the hotel.
Such a lovely intimate setting......and my treatment -  a Theravine  Intensive Exfoliating Skin Treatment-  was absolutely amazing. The best part aside from the divine smell of the products was the 20 minute foot massage and the 10 minute Neck/Shoulder/Head massage that comes with it!!! Nelly's hands deserve an award!
So of course after hearing all the great reviews about The Conservatory....we could not have picked a better day to indulge in a scrumptious lunch of Moules Frites (best in Cape Town!), Caesar Salad with Twice Cooked Hen's Egg , Seared Chalmar Beed Carpaccio and the most amazing selection of bread!
Our Caesar Salad with added Prawn!
Chalmar Beef Carpaccio 
Happy Carol!
What a great way to spend an afternoon!!!
