December is a stressful month: you spend your days running around, desperately looking for appropriate gifts for family members you haven’t met in ages and attending Christmas parties where you mingle with people you don’t particularly like. But now it’s over, this is the perfect time to prioritise and put yourself first. New Year tends to give birth to countless resolutions − all conceived with good intentions yet somehow remarkably short-lived. Don’t let yours be one of them; instead become the healthy, sound individual you’ve always dreamed of being.
Someone once said that your body is a temple, so it’s optimal to start by focusing on your body with a lavish treatment at the Samadhi Spa. Treatments such as crystal healing massage and deep cleansing facials are guaranteed to give you a good start. They also offer specialised treatments for men and women separately, as well as some for couples and new parents.
