Massages

Melt away with our sensorial spa experience, with highly specialised massages that will leave you feeling refreshed, renewed and at one with yourself.

Pinda Signature Massage

This stimulating therapy uses heated pindas made with fragrant eucalyptus and baobab seeds to eliminate toxins accumulated in the body. A combination of heat, deep pressure, lymphatic drainage, and micro-massage with seeds works to stimulate blood flow and drain lymph to the lymph nodes, leaving you both relaxed and refreshed.

Duration: 60/90 minutes

Afrique Deep Tissue Release

This highly-specialised massage is ideal for the relief of stiff aching muscles. Tailored to your needs, a combination of pulling, trigger point therapy, and cross-fibre muscle movement helps to detoxify and stimulate circulation. Enhanced with essential oils, hot and cold gel, and the use of a traditional African wooden ball, any muscle tension simply melts away.

Duration: 60/90 minutes

Afrique Aroma Massage

Our bespoke aromatherapy massage is born of here, combining the natural therapeutic properties of essential oils and the healing powers of massage therapy. The entire experience is tailored your needs, as you select your perfect energetic blend, from Tropical Dusk (uplifting), to Fynbos Crush (detoxifying), and Savannah Dew (relaxing). Afterwards, the body feels unwound, the spirit renewed.

Duration: 60/90 minutes
