Rejuvinate with Friends

Whether you choose to go alone, with your partner or, as we did, celebrate a birthday together Sante has a treatment suitable for everyone. Men, women and teens will enjoy selecting a treatment and spending time together in the relaxing facilities.

Our party individually chose the following treatments:

  • The Arbutus Wrap
  • Teen facial
  • Teen Manicure
  • Organic Thyme Pedicure

Not one of us was disappointed and when we met back together we all felt refreshed relaxed and rejuvinated.

Before the treatments we relaxed on the deck and in the mineral pool, you can also opt for a sauna.

After the treatments we enjoyed more relaxation in the comfortably furnished lounge with some wine (for the mums), and chocolate covered strawberries for the teens.

Group bookings receive 10% discount and you can save more by pre-purchasing gift certificates from Costco - these are available online at $150 for $200 worth of treatments, so quite a saving!

Why self care is Essential

Making time to go to the spa is really beneficial for mind body and spirit. Taking even just one day every couple of months to do something which provides respite from busyness and life's routines can reduce stress, create opportunity to look at problems differently and is seriously beneficial for your overall health and wellbeing.

If you find yourself saying that you have no time or money for self care consider what would happen if you were suddenly struck by a serious illness or accident? Taking time out is an opportunity to give back to your body and mind. Spending that time alone or with people who are important to you is also really beneficial to your relationships with yourself and others.

Tucking away a few pounds or dollars every month for treats will soon build up to enough for a treatment for an hour or a day away. You ARE worth it!

      Thanks kygirl Spa is definitely a must do - take some time to find somewhere local to you and enjoy with a girlfriend. Honestly it's like a mini vacation. Off season rates are good to look out for and sometimes groupon or couvon specials make it very affordable:-)
