An Afternoon at Mowana Spa

Posted By on Feb 22, 2016 | 0 comments


I attended the Land Rover Evoque experience on Tuesday which ended off with an afternoon of spa spoils at Mowana Spa. The spa is situated at the Indaba Hotel in Fourways in a secluded area away from the main road which allows for a peaceful and private environment to relax in.

On arrival we were given specific locker keys and shown to the bathroom to change into something more relaxing. The bathroom decor is simple yet beautiful and finished off with “towel origami”, fresh flowers, and delightfully scented hand soaps and creams.

The lockers revealed gorgeous gowns embroidered with Land Rover which were to be our gift to take home. The gown is thick and heavy which will be phenomenal in winter, but was a little overwhelming in the heatwave we’re currently experiencing. This didn’t matter at all though when I was just trying to keep my eyes open during one of the treatments.

Once we’d all changed we were seated at a long table in their restaurant area. Drinks orders were taken and soon our lunch was served. We were all starving so by the time all the plates were put down we tucked in! I actually don’t remember people speaking that much while we devoured the stuffed chicken breast, potatoes and salad.

What seemed like a few breaths later we were served the most indulgent chocolate torte with ice cream and a berry coulis. The tart was rich and amazing but definitely needed the coulis or ice cream to break up the calorific indulgence.

Once lunch was finished our group was split in two and we were whisked away to the start of our spa spoils.

I had a foot and leg treatment first where the therapist scrubbed my legs and feet down with a coarse scrub before massaging each individually. The view of the surrounding trees and bushes and sounds of birds chirping was the perfect addition to my therapists trained hands.

The second treatment for the day was a full body hot stone massage in one of their treatment huts. This was the view we were treated to though I didn’t see much during my treatment since I was either on my back with my eyes closed or on my tummy with my head positioned in cut-out space.

The afternoon was bliss! My therapist was attentive and the facilities were fantastic. Best of all, I received a voucher from the spa so I get to experience the relaxation again! Hopefully soon…
