To find peace in paradise look no further than the ultra-luxurious Kapama Karula Lodge and Spa, where tranquillity resides.
Surrounded by glass, this stunning newly built spa has an intimate connection with the bushveld scenery. Impalas can often be seen grazing beyond the glistening glass. As the flagship spa, every aspect of the spectacular design and décor invites you to pamper yourself.
With four deluxe treatment rooms and a range of revitalising health and beauty treatments, this spa uses only the finest quality products including the South African-based Healing Earth range, Dermalogica, and Moor Spa facial products. You can choose between half-day packages, day packages and spa therapy packages.
A firm favourite is the Special Elements of Africa Treatment, the ultimate rejuvenating and relaxation experience. Lying on a heated slab, you can enjoy a full body exfoliation and the warmth of heated oils and hot stones, after which the horizontal showerheads are opened to massage the body.
The Pinotage Bliss Experience is well - blissful. A detox-vine-body-wrap soothes after a gentle Pinotage body buff. A marula milk or moor bath is followed by hydrotherapy which invigorates the mind, while massage jets increases blood circulation and eases muscle tension. A scalp massage and a Kapama marble footprint ritual completes the experience.
How about a soothing and hydrating all-over Royal Rasul Treatment with your choice of mud or body butter application? For a more exhilarating experience try the Vichy Shower, or waterfall massage.
For a body workout, the fitness centre is equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and weight-lifting equipment from Technogym. Enjoy a morning run or walk on the stylish Jog Forma treadmill, or cycle on the Wattbike, which has a real-feel ride to increase performance and endurance. Kapama Karula offers free Wi-Fi, so you can use your Wattbike Hub app to analyse your workout data or connect to Strava, Zwift or The Sufferfest.
After working up a sweat, a 10-minute visit to the steam room can help relax joints and muscles, before sliding into the ice bath to help blood circulation.
After your treatments proceed to the relaxation area. A rectangular pool - with built-in loungers and underwater jets between each seat to rejuvenate the body - invites you to take a refreshing plunge.
If you desire a little piece of this African haven to take home, then browse through the spa curio shop before returning to your luxurious suite feeling invigorated and relaxed.
