If you care about your looks and the health of your skin, hair and body but you do not have the funds for expensive beauty treatments, you should look for beauty spa specials in the Western Cape for treatments at affordable prices.
The Western Cape, and Cape Town in particular, is an area that attracts a lot of tourists and holiday makers. People come from all over the world to enjoy the beauty, the beach, the weather, the history and everything else the Western Cape has to offer. Because of this, the hospitality industry thrives in Cape Town.
There are many bed and breakfasts, lodges, sea side self catering flatlets and chalets, cottages for holiday rent and, of course, luxury hotels. The majority of top class hotels all over the world will have a spa of some kind to offer their guests. There are, of course, many independent spas and beauty facilities in the Western Cape as well.
The many beauty and health spas available fit into a broad spectrum of price categories. Some are much more affordable than others, some offer world class (but very expensive) treatments and many offer specials and packages to attract customers.
Different specials and packages on offer
Many spas will have specials or packages of treatments for specific occasions. For example, some businesses offer Valentine’s Day couples packages, Mother’s Day specials or special deals over Christmas. Some spas might even offer bride to be packages, where a bride and her bridesmaids and mother can a range of treatments in a private room (usually with champagne and snacks provided) for a special rate. Another common special is a mother to be package. Many spas offer a package of pampering and soothing treatments for pregnant women at an affordable rate.
Other specials that may be on offer include things like a free mini manicure when over R500 is spent, or a two free sessions on a tanning bed when you buy ten sessions in advance. There might also be off season specials at spas in luxury hotels. Along the coast, the low season sees a definite decrease in the amount of tourists coming to enjoy the beach and sea. With fewer holiday makers, the spas and sometimes the hotel restaurants will offer a range of specials to attract business.
Online coupon offers
There are several companies who offer specials on a huge range of items and services across the country. These businesses offer specials on their websites and if a certain number of people sign up for them, the special of, say, 50 percent off on manicures at a specific spa, will go ahead.

There are often discounts on beauty spa treatments and you can save as much as 80 percent on treatments from a range of different places. Some of the websites to look out for include: Groupon, City Slicker and Dealzone.
Spas that offer specials
Some businesses that offer beauty spa specials in the Western Cape include Alluvia Day Spa, Arabella Hotel and Spa, Life Day Spa Cape Town, Mangwanani Zevenwacht, Suntra Spa and Body Wellness Massage.
Other ways to find specials
There are many ‘mobile spas’ or independent beauticians who will either come to you or allow you to come to their homes for private treatments. Because these entrepreneurs generally operate alone and cannot usually advertise on the scale that other, larger companies do, they rely on maintaining a solid customer base to stay in business.
They will often offer specials to attract and keep customers, and their normal rates might even be cheaper than some of the luxury spas. You can find advertisements for these small businesses on Gumtree and other online and print classifieds.
