Fight pollution and sun damage with a facial to restore elasticity, combat acne and impurities, and rejuvenate your skin. The change in temperature and humidity can often lead to an increase in concerns like rosacea and even breakouts. Indulge in this clarifying facial to get your complexion just right.
An alternative, healing, and calming, holistic therapy that energises the body through and through. This unique treatment uses hot stone massage techniques, but replaces the stones with warm bamboo. The sticks are rolled and kneaded over the muscle tissue to help alleviate tension and general aches and pains. You’ll walk out feeling lighter than air.
An indulgent pedicure that sloughs away dead skin cells from the feet, with just the right amount of buffing and massage to get the toes looking immaculate. You’ll leave feeling light on your feet with a perfect pedicure for those summer slides.
This holistic treatment is a wonderful alternative to massage. The Indian healing traditional massage stimulates the pressure points in the head to ward off migraines and other ailments. The rich oils used for the massage also impart a hydrating rich treatment to the hair.
This signature massage from Caudalie uses the luxurious and enriching Divine Oil. This massage is a hybrid of compression techniques and traditional kneading to soothe muscles and reboost energy. Your skin will be moisturised and wrapped with a unique floral fragrance. You’ll also leave with a flattering sheen on the skin with limbs that feel hydrated and elongated.
Packed with soothing ingredients that harness the power of micro plant technology. This indulgent treatment will infuse moisture back into the hair strands to give damaged, stressed out tresses shine and vitality, especially as UV rays are increased over the summer months.
After a winter of jumpers and jeans, it’s time to get a big dose of hydration to the body. This therapeutic massage targets chronic pain and tension with strong but relaxing massage strokes to alleviate pain in the back and abdomen. Stress is often manifested in digestive issues, so this tackles the symptoms from the inside and out.
This traditional massage compresses and stretches the body to elongate and iron out knots. Unlike other massages, you will stay fully clothed while the therapist works your body, applying pressure to points to alleviate pain and aches.
This is the ultimate three pronged attack at stress to create the ultimate state of relaxation. This treatment package is a combination of face and scalp massage, a facial, back, neck, shoulder massage. This is followed by a foot soak in aromatherapy salt, a deep exfoliation, with natural products, and massage. Finally, a hand treatment that removes dry skin cells with indulgent moisturising and deep cleansing La Cremerie products.
A tailor made facial that will soothe, brighten and refresh the skin. The experienced therapist will examine your skin and give you a complexion boosting treatment. It’s great to treat any flare ups from sun exposure too.
Inspired by the rituals of the ancient Incas, this serene treatment combines the power of hot Obsidian stones with Cold Onyx. The kneading action not only soothes knots and muscular pain but also releases blocked sources of energy and emotions from pressure points in the body. You will walk out balanced and revived.

Take it easy, step away from the treadmill of city life and dip into these relaxing havens for a little Summer R&R.
