Body benefits

Cocoon yourself

Loosen up tight legs with an essential oil massage, release stiffness with a Fire Ritual to transform pain into healing energy, or be immersed in our deliciously scented Rwandan coffee and mint detox wrap. Our indigenous spa therapies are extensive, so schedule plenty of time to get swathed, buffed, boosted, kneaded and released.

Our Signature massage

Release yourself with a 75-minute full-body Intoga Amasatchi treatment, a deep tissue massage using the hands and traditional wooden sticks to ease everyday stress while stretching the muscles. A wonderfully curative journey, it is one that leaves you feeling physically and emotionally lighter.

The African Potato Experience

Our signature treatment stars a humble ingredient with extraordinary properties. Your Hypoxis Body Wrap is formulated with African potato – rich in anti-inflammatory and immune strengthening properties – and marula oil.

Miracle Fruit

African potato is well-known across the globe and is described as ‘Africa’s own miracle fruit'.

Blissful glow

Succumb to the warmth of the wrap as it improves skin hydration while fighting free radical damage.

Melting warmth

As the African potato wrap melts into your skin, you’ll delight in a scalp massage and a traditional foot rub.

Relaxation

The African Potato carries a calming message to peripheral nerves, signalling the whole body to relax.

Treatments for two

A sacred space. Just you and your soulmate.

Our special Couples' Rituals showcase the very best of One&Only Spa. Allow the forest swings to sway you into relaxation, before breathing in the heady scent of essential oils and being vigorously buffed with an African Mud and Invigorating Couples’ Scrub in the outdoor shower. You’ll then ease into a side-by-side full body massage, for a complete sense of serenity.

Nail Treatments

Treat hands and feet to a manicure and pedicure using only organic products. Our 100 per cent pure treatments are deeply nourishing and hydrating. Your nails will be precision-shaped, and finished with a silky oil for a natural sheen.
