It’s been a long hard lockdown and you deserve a break from the family and daily stresses and just perhaps, the family deserves a mini break from you! Gentlemen, you too can recharge your engines at these top Cape Town Day Spas. Make a weekend of it with ‘the guys’ and take in some of the sights and sounds of the mother city while you are at it.

Here you can get a top-to-toe revamp with a huge range of hair, beard, and body treatments specially designed to keep you looking and feeling your best.

They do it all here, from classic clipper cuts through designer coifs to paraffin dips for hands and feet. If you haven’t experienced the luxury of a hot towel beard shave, you haven’t lived, and the full body aromatherapy massage is guaranteed to give you a new lease on life.

Book online and enjoy one, or several private appointments at any or all of the six Cape Town locations. The great thing about Sorbet Man is that you can make your bookings over a few days and use the rest of the day to enjoy your stay in Cape town.
