Why a spa voucher is the perfect gift!

With Christmas upon us, the hardest part about celebrating is trying to shop for the perfect gift.

Instead of queuing for hours, why not consider purchasing a personalised gift, like a spa voucher.

Spa vouchers, just like gift cards, can be structured or flexible, providing the gift receiver the freedom of redeeming their treatment when they want to, or having the choice of selecting what they would like to receive and when.

Another benefit is that vouchers can not only be used for women, but men as well and the best part about giving a spa voucher, is that the receiver knows that you care about their wellbeing.

Granny Mouse Spa knows well, that a pampering spa treatment can be the perfect gift. Not only is the spa situated in one of the most beautiful locations in South Africa, the Granny Mouse Spa, which is located onsite Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, offers treatments for all preferences. Using Thalgo La Beaute Marine and CSpa as the skincare products of choice combined with a full range of health and beauty treatments, guests will be spoilt for choice.

The Spa facilities include a steam room, jacuzzi and a hydrotherapy bath which can be privately booked. The Spa team also offers signature packages and couples treatments. So, choose to give the gift of pampering and relaxation this festive season and get your voucher today. Rates vary and terms and conditions apply.

Furthermore, boasting award-winning service and delicious food, Granny Mouse Country House is sure to provide a great option for lunch dates, when visiting the spa.
