Ever run out of ideas on a good way to spend a Saturday, other than mall trotting? Well I think I may just have stumbled upon something...
I spent the day, with a good friend, at Copperleaf Spa & Gym in Centurion. We took an early morning drive out (08h00 on a Saturday morning, considered early to me), and made it, with time to spare, for our deliciously long list of treatments. We were booked in for a gorgeous package, that kept us well occupied until 16h00, which included the following:
- Full body warm sugar exfoliation
- Full body chocolate wrap
- Full body Swedish massage
- A facial
- Deluxe Manicure & Pedicure
- Icing on this cake.... lunch
Firstly the spa is set in a golf estate just 30 minutes drive from Sandton, with scenery you just cannot describe. It's an immaculately neat and organised setup, where from the minute we stepped in, we felt like VIPs, from professional and friendly staff, to a thorough consultation, from a relaxing ambience to a selection of complimentary beverages, customised sweets, gowns and slippers - attention to detail - they've sure hit the nail on the head. What more is one looking for in a spa experience?!
Quite often one feels slightly short changed when purchasing spa packages, as either the treatments feel rushed, or as if there are some short cuts being taken. Rest assured this was not the case with this spa, the treatments were thorough. I'm ordinarily not one to relax to the point of sleeping, but caught myself wide-mouthed snoring on several occasions (yes, embarrassing, I know). We were made to feel welcome, the atmosphere was warm, I died a blissful death!
Price wise, it's not the cheapest of places, but, you do get every penny's worth. Quality, for me, is most certainly worth paying extra for. I would highly recommend Copperleaf Spa as a nice one-day destination, with the girls or with your other half, you will not regret a second.
The facilities: golf course, café (the food was yum!), sauna, steam room, swimming pool & hair salon (which were under construction and expected to be open by end of March), double and single treatment rooms as well a mani & pedi lounge. I'm almost certain there's a facility or two I may have left out... If you're all about lifestyle then this is for you!
