Relax in Luxury at the Amani Spa at The Houghton Hotel
“Rest and your energy will be restored” … an age-old spa proverb that rightfully finds its place at the Amani Spa at the Houghton Hotel. The luxurious, cosmopolitan spa transcends the conventional idea of what you may have come to expect from a day of pampering. This modern-day oasis has incorporated the healing powers of touch therapy that have been expounded on since ancient times to provide a range of opulent health-promoting experiences.
Amani meaning “Peace” in Swahili and “Aspire” in Arabic, promotes holistic wealth, offering a diverse range of world-class spa and wellness treatments and has placed itself at the forefront of unlocking the mind by rebalancing the body to inspire spiritual growth.
Winner of the World Luxury Spa Award in both 2017 and 2019, Amani boasts state-of-the-art facilities with an exclusive Couple’s Suite with a private Jacuzzi, Vichy, sensation showers, wooden deck, a full in-house beauty salon, 8 multi-functional treatment suits and a Grand Rasul. This unisex Spa caters to hotel guests, residents, private individuals and groups, making it a destination par excellence.
International Luxuria Lifestyle ambassador, Nicole Bessick, visited the Amani flagship Spa and Wellness facility at The Houghton Hotel in Johannesburg, and had the following to say: “I feel refreshed and invigorated from the inside out! My experience at Amani was more than just a massage. I left absolutely floored by what Kurhula Body Ritual can do for the mind, body and soul.”
What is the Kurhula Body Ritual?
This treatment is all about discovering your Kurhula, “inner peace”, as you indulge in the Amani Spa’s 90-minute signature holistic body ritual. The signature journeys treatment aims to achieve that inner peace by bringing balance to the body, mind and soul.
Starting with a welcoming touch, the treatment combines movements that vary in pressure and technique to connect deeply with each area of the body. The unique and luxurious full body massage uses a signature Coconut Balm from Amani that ignites a sensorial experience from foot to the forehead. The nurturing touch of a skilled therapist’s hands on one’s body has benefits that go beyond the realm of the physical. Each stroke, knead, press and roll are done carefully to attend to the body and mind’s need to relax and feel revitalised and is followed by a mini facial to cleanse and hydrate the skin.
The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention. For a holistic, world-class treatment that brings balance to the mind, body and soul… look no further than the Amani Spa at the Houghton Hotel.
