Stellenbosch, nestled in the heart of history and Cape Wine Country, is home to River Manor. Founded in 1679, this town is known as a "place of gables, oaks and wine." A true feast for the eye, intellect and the soul. Set across from the Eerste River, in the historic, oak-lined 'Avenue', these two (see next paragraph) gracious manors were built in the early 1900's and are a mere two minutes stroll from the village center, with its many restaurants, museums and art galleries.

River Manor is now pleased to announce the addition of the adjoining historical residence "Moedersloon". We now offer the same character and charm, with 8 new spacious en-suite rooms all furnished with original antiques providing comfort and luxury. We have also added a second pool and a wellness spa for guest to simply self-indulge while relaxing in this luxurious setting.

The Spa at River Manor is situated within a tranquil garden, overlooking an inviting swimming pool. Within this intimate Spa, guests may indulge in true luxury and pampering, where the Dermalogica Proffessional Range of products is used – allowing for personalised treatments, using only the highest quality active ingredients.

Following in the French Spa tradition, the emphasis at the Spa is to allow for rest, relaxation and the restoring of the inner being. A comprehensive range of Body and Beauty Treatments is offered, with guests able to enjoy further relaxation in the garden, at the poolside on the wrap around verandas.

Pamper your self with one of the facial treatments, BASIC, INTENSIVE AND MULTIVITAMIN POWER FACIAL. Before starting each of these facials, skin is analysed with Dermalogica’s Face mapping procedure with a personal home care programme given on completion of facial treatments.

The Gent’s Executive Facial once tried will tempt one back again and again.
