The Cape West Coast with its bracing ocean, windswept beaches, endless views and dramatic sunsets is the perfect destination, summer or winter. But there is no better place to celebrate summer in the West Coast than at Abalone House and Spa.
If you are interested in spending a little time in the countryside, snacking on delicious food and pampering every inch of your body, Abalone House’s Summer Special is exactly what you are looking for.
Abalone House Hotel and Spa
With only 10 beautiful suites, this gorgeously intimate boutique hotel is known for its eclectic Tretchikoff-inspired décor and supreme luxury touches.
What’s more, the hotel is home to a world-class Healing Earth Spa with four calming treatment rooms and Reuben’s restaurant which serves up a West Coast inspired menu from celebrity chef Reuben Riffel himself. And all of this is located only a mere hour-and-a-half’s drive away from the Mother City.
Reuben’s restaurant is located on the hotel’s ground, and is the perfect location to indulge in delicious meals. Diners can expect to be seated in high-back armchairs in deep reds, and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner until wooden ceiling beams and chandeliers that set the scene for intimate and delicious meals.
Making the most of the West Coast setting as well as Reuben Riffel’s love of aromatic spicing, starters include a Chilli Salt Squid dish. The signature Pork Belly dish will have diners torn for choice while sublime desserts such as the West Coast African Trio (Chocolate Truffels, Almond Vanilla Ice Cream served with an Espresso and Voorkamer Pot Still brandy) are a perfect sweet ending.
Healing Earth Spa
This premium organic spa brand believes in ancient African traditions of healing and energy; guests are pampered with an hour long massage and can choose from a range of body oils to bring about both health and relaxation. Add to the charm of your getaway and book one of the two Couples Treatment Rooms and enjoy the spoils offered by Healing Earth with your loved one this summer.
