Abalone House Boutique Guesthouse adds Healing Earth Spa
Set to open in time for South Africa’s spring; the 5-star Abalone House Boutique Guesthouse in Paternoster on the West Coast is to launch a Healing Earth Spa by September.
The range of products and treatments are both revolutionary and unique, from crystal and scent therapies, through healing herbs and super-foods, to the more conventional yoga and body massages.
And the setting couldn’t be more conducive to relaxation and restoration, the spa which will have five therapy rooms is situated within the 5-star Abalone House Boutique Guesthouse; a haven of living colour, flanked by ice-white beaches and the lapping Atlantic.
‘Our approach is as innovative as our treatments and products,’ explains Healing Earth founder Elisabeth Brandt, doyenne of the South African spa industry. ‘Clients choose a time-frame, and our therapists tailor a holistic package that fits into that time and which best suits the client’s needs and requirements.’
The package may include a range of treatments, from a detox using herbal teas and super-foods, through healing-herb scent therapy, a treatment with African aloe for sun damage, rejuvenation using Brandt’s signature body products, or a de-stress that includes a combination of different massages. Particularly distinctive are the ‘Ultimate Rituals’ facials, for which the therapist mixes a face balm customised to the client’s skin. The warm-sand bed – where clients lie in heated sand that simulates the delicious drowsiness of lying on the beach – is sure to prove a big hit with stressed city folk on the search for real relaxation.
‘Healing Earth’s flagship ranges, which include Vinotherapeutic Pinotage facial and body products, and the Earth Soul body range that harness the medicinal powers of our native plants, flowers and herbs, including Kalahari melon, baobab, rooibos and marula, are exclusively used in the spa,’ says Brandt.
Abalone House will offer innovative Healing Earth’s spa packages ranging from day programmes to 3 – 5 day spa retreat packages and that will include various therapies in individual colour- and crystal-themed rooms, a perfect match for the sumptuousness of Abalone House with its magnificent sea views, indigenous gardens, wind chimes and running water. The space is calm, relaxing and opulent, and the ideal place to kick back and get seriously spoilt.
