Pamper Yourself At The Luxurious Verde Vita Spa and Wellness Centre

The Hotel Verde Guest Experience Takes New Heights

The opening of Verde Vita Spa and Wellness Centre marks a new era in the world of eco-luxury travel. On 21 November 2023, Verde Vita opened its doors to eagerly awaiting special guests, and it concluded with unprecedented success. Hotel Verde Cape Town Airport has always been at the forefront of sustainability, and the launch of their spa, Verde Vita, is a testament to their unwavering commitment to creating a greener and more holistic environment.

This fully-fledged spa facility boasts a luxurious space for guests to relax and enjoy the green oasis that is Verde Vita. Initially created to meet the demands of Hotel Verde guests who seek a serene space to relax and rejuvenate after long flights, the spa began as a small facility within the hotel. Recognising the need for expansion, Hotel Verde decided to transform empty office spaces into a grand spa facility. With the support of a dedicated team, including the local South African architect firm, Ohkre Collective, the construction company, Phase Three, the green consultant, André Harms, of Ecolution, and the spa consultant, Jacoline Wentzel of Spa Warehouse, Verde Vita was designed to incorporate sustainability into every detail.

“I love supporting local businesses with sustainability at the core of their operation ethos, and it was a joy to discover the many marvels of Verde Vita”, said Amy Kleinhans-Curd, the esteemed guest of honour and ribbon cutter at the opening of Verde Vita. “With its focus on offering fresh, organic and locally sourced produce, this new establishment is a testament to the growing trend of eco-consciousness in South Africa.” Kleinhans-Curd’s presence at the launch only added to the excitement, as she shared her passion for healthy living and the importance of supporting local enterprises.

As a boutique spa, Verde Vita embraces the core values of Hotel Verde, seamlessly blending sustainability with luxurious guest experiences. The aesthetic of the spa features curved walls, green wall finishes, curved arches for retail shelves, and the reception desk, all inspired by the organic shapes found in nature. This harmonious design approach mirrors Hotel Verde’s commitment to preserving the environment while simultaneously providing exceptional service and comfort to its guests.

Jacoline Wentzel, the spa consultant from Spa Warehouse, shares her vision for Verde Vita, stating, “As the spa consultant on the job, I wanted to make sure that not only does the spa function well, but that it follows the green philosophy of Hotel Verde. We carefully selected local manufacturing for our spa equipment, including beech wood massage beds and trollies. Our lounges, such as those in the Breathing Room, were locally manufactured, and we sourced linen towels from local manufacturers too. The treatment menu consists of professional treatments using only South African product ranges, which are certified organic or natural, aligning with Verde Vita’s philosophy of ‘Green Life’.”

Verde Vita Spa features three beautifully appointed treatment rooms – Magnolia, Lavender, and Jasmine – named after popular flowering plants. The single massage treatment rooms can easily be converted into a double treatment room to accommodate couples seeking ultimate relaxation together. The spa also boasts an infrared cabin, a type of sauna that uses infrared lighting, a manicure and pedicure treatment section, an eyelash extension treatment room, and a post-treatment Breathing Room.

Verde Vita is committed to using environmentally friendly and sustainable products to enhance their guest’s spa experience. They proudly feature South African skincare brands such as ESSE, Cashmere & Co., Matsimela, BioSculpture and SUNSKIN known for their dedication to using natural, organic, and planet-conscious ingredients, allowing the spa treatments at Verde Vita to not only nourish their guests bodies but also contribute to a greener and more sustainable future. After indulging in their chosen treatments, guests can unwind, sip on tea, and take a deep breath in the serene ambience of the Breathing Room. Verde Vita’s spa therapists are all locally sourced staff who are internationally trained professionals, providing a true South African experience for foreign guests arriving at the hotel.

Hotel Verde Cape Town Airport continues to set a new standard in sustainable hospitality with the launch of Verde Vita Spa and Wellness Centre. By seamlessly integrating nature-inspired design and locally sourced products, the spa ensures that guests can unwind, rejuvenate, and enjoy the ultimate green oasis experience.
