We were so busy adventuring all around town to ensure we made the most of our stay that I was quite exhausted and only too happy to be able to escape to the quiet sanctuary of the Gingko Spa, operated by the renowned Ginkgo Spa and Wellness Group.
The spa offers everything from manicures and pedicures to massages, facials and body treatments and facilities include:

The location of the spa inside the Arniston Spa Hotel offers the ideal opportunity for mom to retreat for some “me-time” while on a family holiday and I was only too grateful to have an indulgent afternoon experiencing the serenity of the space.
There is such peaceful power in touch and it truly heals the mind and calms the spirit.
Firstly, my husband joined me for a detoxing sauna that we had pre-booked due to COVID-19 regulations. (All Touch and Spa body treatments include a complimentary 20-minute sauna and we asked permission for him to join me.) After allowing the dry heat to relax our muscles and sweat out our pores, it was time for a refreshing shower before hopping into a plush white robe for an afternoon of ultimate relaxation.
Two hours later, after a 45-minute BABOR Express Facial followed by a Magnesium Oil full body massage, I emerged back to reality. Fortunately I only had to stumble a few steps down the hall to my bed where I could continue to enjoy the effects of my pampering for a little longer.
Single treatments vary from a 20-minute back, neck and shoulder massage to the signature 90-minute Ginkgo ‘Ataraxia’ massage. The combination day packages from the Ginkgo Leaf Collection are popular and ensure that you will leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated with your skin nourished, your body soothed and your mind calmed.
All Gingko therapists have years of care and experience which shows as Gingko Spa were the winners of the Haute Grandeur Global Spa Awards.
