Treat yourself to one of the revitalising treatments on offer. We recommend opting for an ESPA aromatherapy massage where a blend of exotic oils will be smothered into your skin. If you need a pick me up, the Immune Booster offers a powerful mix of tea tree and eucalyptus essential oils renowned for their anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties which helps to enhance the body’s natural resistance. Then, if all this pampering has worked up an appetite, enjoy fresh juices and light fare in the spa’s on-site restaurant.
