Royal Malewane was voted as the 3rd best hotel in the world by Travel & Leisure (USA) magazine's World's Best Awards for 2011.

The Waters of Royal Malewane Bush Spa is like everything else at this incredible lodge − exclusive, intimate and designed with great attention to detail. The spa gets its name from the healing power of water as its hydrotherapy treatments make use of the mineral-rich water that is sourced from an underground stream flowing through the private reserve. Enjoy front seats at nature's matinée as you relax around the heated pool in the central courtyard in between treatments.

The treatment rooms are situated around this tranquil courtyard, and there is also a fully-equipped gymnasium, a jacuzzi, hot and cold African baths and a steam room. This spa at Royal Malewane has an extensive treatment menu including massage therapies, hydrotherapies, hot stone treatments and skin care therapies, however, the highlights are the Signature Treatments that last for three glorious hours.

Enjoy the African Awakening treatment − a stimulating and soothing treatment using indigenous fynbos; The Royal Treatment which utilises the healing properties of the indigenous marula tree to nurture the body; the African Renaissance treatment aimed to rev those energy levels and leave the toxins way behind.

At this exclusive African Spa there are also a number of African Rituals in which you can partake, treatments that utilise essential natural oils to invigorate and revitalise. There's the Moru (African Forest Ritual) to rebalance the body, the Sefako (African Storm) ritual that will encourage one to ‘experience the subtle fragrances of the African Savannah after a cloudburst', the Tula (Calmness) treatment that combines the aromas of tangerines, lavender and sandalwood, and don't miss out on the Uvuyo (Happiness) ritual that will send any fatigue on its way − a great ritual for those suffering from jetlag.

The Waters of Royal Malewane Bush Spa is the place to reconnect with yourself as natural treatments weave their magic.
