Pure Luxury: Soothe your Soul at Aqua Spa in Humansdorp

Pure Luxury: Soothe your Soul at Aqua Spa in Humansdorp

As an avid day spa visitor, I am always eager to try new spas. The moment I heard about Aqua Spa, situated in Humansdorp, I knew I had to try it and wasted no time in booking myself a treatment package for a day of total relaxation.

Immediately on arrival, I was able to take in the calming ambiance of the spa just from the water fountain outside the front door

From sedative lighting in the passages and insets of sparkling stones in the walls, to the carefully chosen wall and floor textures and mosaics, the spa is absolutely luxurious and gives an instant feeling of calmness.

The service was friendly, professional and informative and after being warmly welcomed and shown to the ladies changing area, I was provided with a robe and slippers as well as a locker, to keep all my belongings in.

My day was to consist of four treatments, a session in the floatation tank, an exfoliate and body mask in the rasul, a back, neck and shoulder massage and to end it off a face mapping facial.

The floatation tank is designed to replicate the effects of the Dead Sea and aids with stress relief, anxiety and even pain relief. After stepping into the tank, I was able to take in the beautifully mosaicked room with a ceiling of twinkling lights like stars above.

Between treatments, the relaxation room is used for time out and to hydrate with some fruit infused water or a hot drink of choice.

The rasul is a mosaicked steam room where I was provided with a body exfoliator and a soothing body mask. After the session, a gentle mist rains down rinsing the mask off and the lights brighten signaling the end.

I was also very impressed with the massage. The room was a comfortable temperature, with soft lighting and soothing music. My therapist, Deonette told me about range of homeopathic oils she would be using. She was also sure to check the pressure with me and ask for any specific areas to focus on.

I felt comfortable the whole duration of the massage and thereafter during the facial too. Deonette was very informative about the products that were used, and explained exactly what she was doing throughout the facial.

On the whole, I was very impressed with Aqua Spa, from the staff, to the ambiance, and of course the mind-blowing treatments. I would recommend this spa to anyone and everyone, for a relaxing day with friends, a romantic break with your partner or even just a spoil to yourself.
