We carry so many possessions when we travel, reluctant to leave behind things we think we might need on our adventures. We also take with us the baggage of our lives. Very few people going on holiday have the wonderful talent of being able to leave behind their daily worries and just relax, unwind and enjoy an unfettered relaxing experience.
Tending to one’s physical and mental well-being is not just an indulgence, it is a way of restoring balance to our bodies and minds. A really professional, relaxing spa is the perfect remedy – a healthy, nurturing, spiritual and physical experience – and who would expect to find such marvellous treatments in the middle of the African Bushveld.
But this is Sabi Sabi, where, besides languishing in super opulent suites and thrilling to unparalleled safari adventures, there are also award-winning spas in which to unwind, relax and calm down. Two beautiful and tranquil Amani Spas are situated in the unspoilt game reserve, at Sabi Sabi’s Earth Lodge and Bush Lodge.
The soothing scents of aromatherapy oils and calming sounds of running water in the spa fountains induce a meditative state of mind. Experienced therapists awaken one’s senses with infused aromatic oils, gently relieving the pressure of strained and tired muscles whilst the gentle rustle of the Lowveld breeze, combined with the surrounding earthy scents, creates a haven of tranquillity.
The release from stress is tangible as we immerse ourselves in a pampering session and surrender to a luxurious wellness experience.
For the month of February 2018, Sabi Sabi is offering an exclusive and restorative three-night Sabi Sabi / Amani Spa package, available to guests at any one of our four luxurious lodges. This amazing offer, which is inclusive of 5-star accommodation, exciting morning and evening safaris with highly trained guides and trackers, stupendous meals and local beverages, also includes a Kurhula Body treatment for each Spa Package guest. The Kurhula Body Ritual is a 90-minute session designed to bring about kurhula (“inner peace”). This unique and luxurious full body massage using Amani’s signature coconut massage balm, is followed by a revitalising, hydrating mini facial. What pleasure!
The month of February is Valentines month, traditionally romantic and loving, and a sojourn to Sabi Sabi with your partner is the ideal indulgence. If you don’t have a significant other, invite a close friend or relative to join you for a memorable few days at our world-class lodges. Remember to pack light and leave your “baggage” behind.
