Pezula Spa

Pezula Spa at Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa, Knysna, was named one of the top spas in the world in the Condé Nast Traveller’s annual Readers’ Spa Awards 2011, held in London last week.

The awards highlight the finest spas around the globe including the best hotel spas, spa retreats, day spas and thermal spas, based on readers’ votes on criteria including spa facilities, individual approach, ambience/design, body and facial treatments, amenities and products, exercise programmes, cuisine, as well as quality of service and staff.

Pezula Spa was voted 5th in the category ‘Hotel spas: Africa, Middle East & the Indian Ocean’,  with an overall score of 92.09. The winner in this category, the Spa at La Mamounia, in Marrakech, was also named the Top Spa in the World with an overall score of 95.57.

Pezula Spa is the only spa in South Africa to have been nominated and one of only two in Africa.

Pezula GM, Gert Venter, said that the award was a huge accolade. “Global recognition for our Spa, its facilities, treatments and staff is the best possible reward for our efforts to provide a world class spa experience for our guests.”
