Erna Low, specialists in Body & Soul holidays at over 80 spa hotels and resorts worldwide, is currently presenting an exclusive Spa and Safari retreat for summer 2003
The special package from Erna Low, which was created to combine an exclusive Spa Holiday with exceptional Game Viewing, enables spa goers to enjoy the best of both worlds in South Africa by spending five nights at the Mount Grace Country House Hotel and two nights at Jaci`s Safari Lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
The Mount Grace Spa offers a huge variety of specialist face, skin and body treatments including hot stone therapy massages; hydrotherapy baths; self-heating healing mud packs; exfoliating body scrubs; scalp massages; detoxifying and hydrating body wraps; anti-ageing treatments; and a host of other indulgent treats.
The highlight of the spa complex is the hydrotherapy spa garden, the place for quiet contemplation and meditation that makes the most of South Africa’s sunny climate. The two heated Jacuzzi pools with soothing water jets are in the form of rock pools, while the garden’s natural rock pools and streams incorporate cooling waterfalls with magnificent views over the Magaliesberg Mountains.
The double-storey thatched and natural stone spa lodge (built on a curve to resemble a baby in the foetal position) embodies comfort, calm and relaxation. There are five private treatment rooms including a wet treatment room which is also suitable for disabled guests and a double treatment room for couples or close friends to experience treatments together.
The spa complex is surrounded by 10 luxuriously appointed Mountain Village suites each with a private heated plunge pool and the superb spa café offers guests a choice of light, healthy dishes suitable for detox programmes and wholesome cuisine with an emphasis on health-giving, feel-good ingredients.
To complete the spa package the Mount Grace has developed its own unique range of African bush-inspired beauty products under the ‘Essence of Grace’ label. This new range is designed for use within the spa complex works alongside the internationally acclaimed Phytomer range of spa products.
Included in the Erna Low Spa & Safari package is full and half board accommodation; relaxation spa package at Mount Grace with ten treatments and nature walks; return transfers; return flights; transport in a private touring vehicle; entrance fees to the game park; and a game guide in the game park.
