Invoke the Spirit of Africa with New Rainforest Spa Rituals

Invoke the Spirit of Africa with New Rainforest Spa Rituals

Immersed in the warmth of a gentle rain shower, listen to the patter of water harmonise with the distant sound of the tropical rainforest rhythms, as the body and mind are revived in a regenerating and soothing massage in the latest new treatments from the Spa at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita.

Drawing on the naturally purifying elements of water ( mati in Zulu) and the restorative power of African essential oils, the four tailored rituals comprise the healing Lungisa Mati, which stimulates cell activity to detoxify the body and create a slimming effect; the reviving Vusa Mati, which focuses on restoring energy levels through boosting the immune system; the calming Thule Mati, which is the ideal treatment to soothe sensitive skin, offering deep hydration and cleansing; or the purifying Baleka Mati, which balances the body’s water levels and seals in nourishment. The rituals are available as either 90 or 120 minute treatments.

Alternatively, for those seeking the ultimate in escapism, the 75-minute Four Handed Rain Massage offers a hot aromatic steam to prepare the body, followed by the devotion of two skilled therapists for a massage dedicated to body’s utmost wellbeing.

Combining the purity of water with the energising properties of the exclusive Africology product line, the new treatments embrace the power of nature to revive, heal and protect the body and spirit. The Spa offers guests a dedicated Aqua Vichy Suite for the revitalising treatments, which is complete with a private steam room, sauna and two handmade mangrove wood Vichy rain shower beds.

The 90 minute treatments include an aromatic steam, rain exfoliation, a rejuvenating face mask, scalp massage and a shea body conditioning massage, while the extended 120 minute rituals include the additional elements of a full body mask, foot massage and sauna.
