In a spa set at the foothills of the beautiful Melville Koppies Nature Reserve, an experience fit for the gods awaits you. At the beautiful Melville Wellness Centre and Day Spa, you’ll be entitled to enjoy a half day treatment offering relaxation and personal rejuvenation, while right outside nature’s backyard. With spa specialists administering pampering, spoiling and indulgent treatments, it’s not unlikely you’ll be sent into daydreams of times spent in the Parthenon with Athena.
Begin your first-class half day experience with a healthy and natural breakfast of fruit salad and muesli. Alternatively, you can opt for the chicken salad lunch instead of the breakfast as both come with tea or coffee. Follow up with a manicure and pedicure from the skilled spa staff, thought to have been hand-picked by the gods. Your fingers and toes will welcome the much desired individual attention. The half day treat continues with a 75 minute massage, to de-stress and relax and a 30 minute Indian head massage, giving you a head to toe pamper party. Though if this isn’t where you want the pleasure to end, you can opt for a session in the jacuzzi at a discounted R100 - a power that only you, a Groupon holding goddess-like creature holds.
Even if your vessel started out as a temple of doom, the tranquil and revitalising treatments are more than likely to turn it into the Parthenon. Embraced by nature’s beauty, Melville Wellness Centre and Day Spa’s lush garden will have you in a serene and cleansed state of mind faster than Indiana Jones can say, “Those aren’t big birds, sweetheart. Those are giant bats!”
Spa Fact: Archaeologists in Egypt have recently found paintings depicting ancient practices in the art of massage in what they believe to be an ancient equivalent of a spa. The secret enclave was discovered when Dr. Jacob Mesotampotia pulled a dessert spoon out from under a rock, releasing a lever underground.
