Designed to instantly relax, de-stress or uplift both body and mind, the three-stage journey involves a progressive series of aromas and personalised oils. The experience begins on arrival where the Ottoman inspired reception is filled with the uplifting scent of lemon grass, helping guests to feel refreshed and relieved of stress.
Stage two reveals the fragrance of wild frangipani, which is infused into the relaxation areas of the spa, ensuring guests feel calm and relaxed. Before moving to the final stage of their sensory journey, guests can choose from three contrasting essential oils for use during their treatment. Each holds their own powerful effect and can help to de-stress, energize or relax.
To enhance the experience Himalayan salt lamps have been added to treatment rooms. Himalayan salt has long been trusted for its natural healing properties and holds similar advantages to that of an ionizer. The salt lamps emit negative ions purifying the air, increasing wellbeing, strengthen the immune system and soothing the mind, body and soul.
