The backdrop to this Indian Ocean retreat makes it the perfect spot to restore equilibrium to mind and body: 120 hectares of lush tropical vegetation, pure white sand beaches and brilliant turquoise seas.

Here’s a taste of some of the treatments on offer.

Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy massage focuses on the unique needs of the expectant mother and baby. This massage helps you to relax, and brings relief from swelling, stress and muscle cramps.

Cushions and pillows are used to place you in a relaxing side-lying position to ensure proper spinal alignment and support. Mild stretching and light Swedish massage is used to soothe the body, and reduce aching in stress-bearing joints such as the ankles and lower back. You will leave the session feeling relaxed, restored, and rejuvenated.

Prenatal Yoga

Using gentle yoga postures and breath brings greater awareness to mind, body and spirit, and gives you space and time to connect with your baby. Conducted in a calm, peaceful environment, the yoga helps to strengthen the uterus and pelvic muscles, improve circulation, aid digestion, exercise the spine and increase overall comfort.
