They complement Sabi Sabi’s ethos of creating a space at one with nature, where all things exist in harmony. Just weeks after opening, the spa at Earth Lodge has been named as a finalist in the annual South African Spa Awards, presented by Les Nouvelles Esthetiques. Winners will be announced in July.
On offer are holistic body, skin and beauty rituals, rejuvenating massages and soothing treatments designed to relax, harmonise and heal body and soul. Sessions are tailored to individual needs, and a popular option is a ‘couple’s package’ where guests enjoy treatments simultaneously in a special suite. Amani means ‘Peace’ in Swahili, and the new spas reflect this throughout each treatment.
At Earth Lodge, the Pango Room (‘cave’ in Ki-Swahili) offers a fabulous ‘rasul’ treatment – a cleansing mud treatment combined with heat, steam and shower. All the other spa treatment rooms are beautifully crafted in Earth Lodge’s distinctive style and offer a full range of spa therapies.
The Bush Lodge treatment suites all have breathtaking views of the unending bushveld. There is also an outdoor treatment area and shower.
Amani’s philosophy is “to create the ultimate African Bush Spa experience that is pampering, unique and memorable, by creating an enchanting ambience of absolute tranquillity that reflects the soul of Africa with its natural elements & textures.”
