Erinvale Estate Spa opens new world of wellness

peterkrug,annemarieretief,craigseamanlarge20091117145951Erinvale Estate Spa, listed in Top 100 Spas in Africa, is managed and operated by the Gingko Spa Group. Gingko operates a number of boutique wellness spas in South Africa, embracing a holistic approach to health and wellness. Erinvale Estate Spa now includes Nimue, the leader in scientific skincare, in its extensive range of carefully designed treatments, which combine to help spa guests discover a whole new world of relaxation and wellness.

“Our philosophy is to create a spa experience that is truly intimate, yet never over-powering or intimidating,” says Peter Krug, MD of Gingko. “It is for this reason that each location has a maximum of only four treatment rooms. And although each has its own character, influenced by the hotel or resort in which it is located, you will discover that we never compromise on the uniquely sensual experience and personal attention that only boutique spas excel in.”

For a limited period at Erinvale Spa, clients will be given free use of the Nimue Skin Analyser. This technology utilises ultraviolet rays (UVA) after harmful ultraviolet rays (UVB and UVC) are filtered out, to reveal skin types and underlying conditions such as uneven skin colouring, sun damage, excess oil flow, build up of dead skin cells and dehydration. The Nimue Skin Analyser also maximises skin treatment results through accurate diagnosis, treatment and product prescriptions.

The Erinvale Spa experience perfectly complements any number of leisure activities at the hotel – a round of golf; a peaceful interlude during a conference; or an indulgent pre-wedding pampering session. The hotel also offers diverse conferencing facilities and a wedding chapel.

Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa, part of the Louis Group Hotels, Spas & Vineyards collection of boutique hotels, is the only South African hotel to be a member of the exclusive Leading Golf Hotels of the World. A Gary Player-designed 18-hole course is walking distance from the hotel and three world famous wine estates – Vergelegen, Morgenster and Lourensford – offer a variety of taste and sensory experiences, also in close proximity to the hotel.

The Erinvale Estate Spa welcomes hotel guests and day visitors. For bookings or more information about the Nimue Skin Analyser, please call 021 847 1682 or email:
