What we say:
‘Off I went for a spa treatment at the wonderful Life Day Spa at the African Pride Crystal Towers Hotel & Spa for an experience I won’t forget for a while. I couldn’t wait to report back on this one…
‘Even though I performed the treatment myself for the first hour (sans therapist), it was such a fun and relaxing experience. I first stepped into the flotation pool, which is calf deep for a bit of floating around. No one was around; just me, salt water, flickering candles and some soothing tunes playing under water. For half an hour I floated around and totally forgot about everything else. When my time was up, the lights came on and it was time for me to move onto the Rasul Treatment.
‘If you have never heard of this, don’t worry. Neither had I until I arrived at the Rasul ‘chamber’. It is a beautifully done up crystal chamber. Based on the traditional Turkish bath, this exfoliating treatment makes use of pure medicinal earth mud, which you apply over your body to help cleanse and detoxify. Steam fills up the chamber as you relax on the warm crystal seats. The steam helps to open your pores and draw out any impurities. Just as I was about to fall asleep, tropical rain fell from the top of the chamber to help wash away the mud and complete my treatment. It was such a rejuvenating and relaxing experience. This ceremony can be experienced with a partner or even in a group. My skin felt soft and totally exfoliated.
‘To end off my afternoon of pampering, my back, neck and shoulders got some attention. This time it was with the help of a therapist. She removed all my knots and tension spots and just really made everything feel good again. I left Life Day Spa feeling like a new person, and so did my skin.’
