The Retreat is our indoor/outdoor mineral water therapy zone with deck, guest lounge and open fireplace. Soak away stress and tiredness in mineral-rich local spring water.
Two 37°-39° mineral water spa pools revive and relax stressed bodies, while a cool plunge pool invigorates. The transition from hot to cool stimulates the circulatory system.
The lavender-infused basalt stone sauna is the only one in the southern hemisphere and has to be experienced to be believed. The hot rocks are plunged into the copper cauldron filled with essential oil.
Step into the infrared detox box and be engulfed by gentle warmth that activates the body’s natural cleansing process.
The wet steam room assists in opening the pores and clearing chest and sinus congestion.

Mineral Water plunge and spa pools
Two 37 degree mineral water plunge spa pools revive and relax while the cooler plunge pool invigorates – all overlooking our landscaped gardens.
Our spring water is sourced from only the finest local springs and contains dissolved mineral salts, trace elements and gases vital for overall health and wellbeing.
Infrared Detox Box (Dry Sauna)
Unlike traditional saunas, the infrared Detox Box doesn’t use any steam, instead it emits infrared radiant heat. The infrared heat penetrates and cleans deep into pores, clears the organs of toxins and strengthens the immune system.
It also removes the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol.
The infrared Detox Box can also be used to aid weight loss – calories used during half an hour in the infrared sauna equate to more than someone running for the same amount of time.
It can also assist with cardiac problems, acne and many other health issues and is great for relieving stress. The Detox Box can be used by people with respiratory problems as the air is not heated like that in a traditional sauna.
The steam room has many health benefits and works to relax the body and ease tension by flushing out and eliminating toxins. It also provides health benefits for people with respiratory problems such as asthma or sinusitis.
By increasing blood circulation, the steam room can also reduce signs of aging and invigorates the skin to encourage a healthy, glowing appearance.
However, the steam room is not for everyone. If you have a history of heart problems, acute rheumatoid arthritis, severe infection or are pregnant, we advise you first consult a physician.
LAVENDER-INFUSED BASALT STONE SAUNA
The lavender-infused basalt stone sauna is more than just pouring water over sizzling stones.
Here, mineral stones are heated on the fire then a basket containing the hot stones is dipped into a cauldron filled with cold water. The sizzling stones release and disperse mineral aerosols within the room which has a great effect on inhalation.
An increase in humidity and room temperature is achieved through the repeated lifting and lowering of the basket and the body slowly becomes acclimatized to the gentle rising temperatures and humidity which leads to a special kind of well-being that is gentle on the cardio system.
