Victoria Falls Safari Spa, which opened six months ago, establishing itself as a leader in health and wellness offerings in the iconic travel destination of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, has introduced half and full day packages to leave holidaymakers feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and refreshed.
Victoria Falls’ largest and first purpose-built spa’s full day package includes an African Spirit Signature Journey, which consists of a full body scrub, full body mask and hot stone massage, a light lunch and an African Goddess Age-Defying Facial.
For those more pressed for time, there are also three half-day packages to choose from – one featuring a leg and foot revival treatment, another a choice of a 60-minute full body massage or a facial and the other a 30-minute back, neck and shoulder massage or a facial.
Africa Albida Tourism (AAT) chief executive Ross Kennedy said, “The first six months have been a valuable learning period for a new business and product such as our spa, but it has positively surprised us with three of those six months being profitable, and the trade and destination welcoming and supporting us.
“We are exploring the idea of implementing additional hydrotherapy facilities to complement the overall wellness offering,” Mr Kennedy said.
“One of the most surprising and welcome aspects has been the amazing response to our reflexology pool situated in a cool, calm treed area adjacent to the spa pool. It is a beneficial and therapeutic self-treatment, especially after a long day of activities or safari itinerary.”
Since its opening, Victoria Falls Safari Spa’s team of five therapists have carried out nearly 1,300 treatments, with massages being the most popular. Other treatments available include facials, body scrubs, manicures, pedicures and hairdressing services.
Victoria Falls Safari Spa, which is open to guests staying on the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate, guests from other hotels and Victoria Falls residents, features a central area boasting manicure and pedicure stations, a hair and make-up studio, relaxation rooms, a splash pool, a reflexology pool and a café, while there are also three outlying stand-alone treatment rooms, one double and two singles.
The African tented safari camp-style spa, located in indigenous woodland on the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate, in keeping with the rest of the hospitality group’s portfolio, uses bold, colourful, Ndebele design elements.
In addition to Victoria Falls Safari Spa, AAT operates Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, Victoria Falls Safari Club, Victoria Falls Safari Suites, Lokuthula Lodges and The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show.
