Set in an historic, exquisite Italianate building where fountains, columns and Romanesque frescoes breathe romance, CAMELOT SPA at VILLA d’ESTE is the complete secret space in the city.
For off the hurly-burly of Jan Smuts Avenue lies a place of retreat & rejuvenation, inviting well-being and a journey to wellness.
Built in the early 1920’s and known as the house “where time stands still”, VILLA d’ESTE was fabulously formed according to the eccentric and Italian-inspired wishes of its original owner and then more so by its second owner in the 50s – complete with cherubic fountains, frescoes, columns topped with eagles and a curved entrance façade facing a reflection pool, all of which has been lovingly restored – and has remained a landmark in the leafy suburb ever since.
In turn, the Spa’s treatment rooms are decorated in a design aesthetic fusing a quirky mod-style with ornate belle époque forms, CAMELOT AT VILLA d’ESTE’s interiors have been restored to embrace elements of its idiosyncratic history – such as Romanesque mosaics and motifs and sumptuous trompe l’oeil paintings – along with new, moulded door details and baroque wall-papering.
This day spa’s luxurious facilities include a number of elements which present a renaissance for the senses, including a flotation pool with underwater lights and black & white mosaics, Rasul chamber with twinkling LED light roof, Roman Vitality pool (placed within the property’s original indoor Roman-style bath), hydrobaths and outdoor sensation showers while a treatment conservatory is set amongst the beautiful gardens. Keeping in theme, all rooms are Italian-inspired such as Bel Giardino, Tranquilita and La Serenita.
After your treatment, a rooftop relaxation area over-looks the 1000s of trees of Saxonwold while The Birdcage serves stylishly healthy cuisine, all of which makes VILLA d’ESTE a true day Spa within which to unwind.
