Shangri-La opens its brand new Spa

spasl

The renowned Waberberg Country Hotel, Shangri-La, has crossed the threshold into the international hospitality arena. In response to the high demand from its loyal patronage of the past 24 years, the romantic Country Hotel in the heart of the bushveld has opened its very own Spa!  The long awaited move now elevates Shangri-La to new heights of decadence and service in an atmosphere of pure relaxation and sensual enjoyment.

Located at Shangri-La’s iconic sparkling pool, the new Spa forms part of the relaxation area.  “We have created a whole new space for our guests to enjoy the comforts of our well known destination,” says owner Johan Jansen van Vuuren, who has recently also opened a similar concept at the 5-star Abalone House & Spa in Paternoster.  “We have long been wanting to offer this service to our guests, and have the past 2 years been able to provide a mobile spa service with a local entrepreneur, however, the feedback has been extremely positive and the demand for a permanent offering high.  It was logical to take the next step.”

Elegant simplicity is what guests can expect from the upcoming Spa, which opened its doors on 1 July 2014 at Shangri-La.  The Spa offers two calm treatment rooms – one customized for couples. The services that guests can expect will range from a variety of massages and skin and body care treatments.  An enticing menu of face and body treatments is available to guests, and the beautifully soothing surroundings will ensure a deeply enjoyable experience.

The Country Hotel recently won its second consecutive Trip Advisor Award of Excellence 2014, which follows its first Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Award 2014 for top 25 Bargain Hotels in South Africa.  Shangri-La Country Hotel also boasts a Diner’s Club award winning wine list and has been hosting its popular monthly Food & Wine Pairing dinners to rave reviews this past year (read more about the next even further down).

Special Opening package:
To celebrate the launch of the new Shangri-La Country Hotel & Spa, the hotel offers an exclusive package to guests, inclusive of a Herbal-heated Hot Stone massage, 2 nights’ comfortable overnight accommodation with sparkling wine in the room on arrival, a 3-course dinner at the Heritage Restaurant and scrumptious full English breakfast in the Bellows Restaurant.  Both venues boast a fireplace which adds to the charm during winter.  Guests also receive a delightful bouquet of flowers and a special gift!  The package is valid from 1 July 2014 – 30 September 2014 for only R995.00 per person per night. Minimum two night stay.  Bookings essential.  Call 087 820 5999 or 014 718 1600 (direct).

The Shangri-La team

“We’ve done it again!” exclaims General Managers Ken Strydom from Shangri-La Country Hotel in Modimolle.  The hotel has been awarded with yet another Trip Advisor Award of Excellence for 2014.

The award, being the 2nd for Shangri-La, honours hotels that have received a constant stream of positive scores with a rating of 4 out of 5 and higher.  “We’re thrilled,” says Managing Director Johan Jansen van Vuuren.  “When we received our first award in 2013, I was delighted.  Then it happened again!  To receive it is a true honour and a reflection of the hard work and effort we have put in to our guest satisfaction and customer service.  It’s remarkable and we are so grateful that our guests made this happen!”

According to the marketing team, the amount of guest reviews have increased tremendously during the past year.  The most popular platform for our group is Trip Advisor, and South of Africa takes pride in responding to each of our guests reviews as within 24 – 48 hours.  We value our guests feedback and use this as a tool to ensure that our customer service is of the highest standard.
