Mangwanani Signature Spa and The Capital Join Forces to Create a New One of a Kind Experience at The Grotto Spa Bar


Johannesburg, 22nd of  November 2022: It has been reported that national stress levels are up by 56%. The toll that stress takes on your mental and physical health is well documented and if left untreated, can be incredibly harmful. A peaceful getaway can not only mitigate those effects and rejuvenate your body, but it can also clear your mind and expose you to new experiences. Nestled near the foot of table mountain, The Grotto Spa Bar at  Mangwanani Signature Spa in The Capital 15 on Orange is the ideal place to let your stress melt away.

“Coming off the back of our wildly successful partnership with The Capital Zimbali, we are proud to announce that The Capital 15 on Orange will now be featuring a Signature Spa experience that only Mangwanani can deliver,” says Marc Wachsberger, CEO of The Capital Hotels and Apartments.

Uniquely Luxurious:

Decorated in dark and sumptuous hues, this uniquely luxurious underground spa combines opulence and discretion to create a sultry and inviting environment. Set within Cape Town’s richly historical Company’s Garden and anchored by Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, The Grotto Spa Bar offers an experience like no other. With eight treatment rooms, isolation sleep pods, a heated pool, a Wim Hof cold pool, a Turkish bath, a sauna and a steam room, The Grotto Spa Bar is the perfect place to disappear from the world.

If you only need to vanish for a moment, the business-class sleep pods offer a private space for guests to unwind, take a quick power nap, read a book, or simply unwind.

Unrobed and Unwound:

Part of what makes The Grotto Spa Bar unique is how it cultivates a sultry atmosphere. Guests get free entrance if they have a treatment booked and are encouraged to leave their clothes at the door. Luxury gowns are provided and must be worn to enjoy The Grotto bar’s facilities, even at the cocktail bar. The idea behind this is to create a relaxed, decadent, and inclusive mood where everyone can experience true relaxation. It is also sets the perfect tone for pamper parties, bachelorettes, baby showers and any other gowns only celebrations

Wachsberger says, “We understand the importance of taking time out to unwind and wanted to create a space where couples and individuals from all walks of life could escape from the pressure of the outside world. If secluded, intimate escapes are your cup of tea then The Grotto Spa Bar is the perfect place for you.”

How To Maximise Your Experience:

If you want to get the most out of your time at The Grotto Spa Bar at The Capital 15 on Orange, keep these tips in mind:

  • Make sure to try some of the world-class cocktails and delectable finger foods on offer at the bar.
  • Bring a date. It can be a lover or a friend, as long as it’s someone that will help you enjoy your time all the more.
  • Be present. The compulsion to pull out our phones and scroll through social media lives with all of us. The Grotto Spa Bar is a space where you can put your phone away and revel in the decadence on offer.
  • And most importantly, “Gowns only”.  Leave your clothes (and worries) at the door!
