Monkeys, oranges, and rejuvenation

A treatment at the Singita Bush Spa can be enjoyed in the spa itself, or better yet, in a guest suite. Whether out on the deck with a spectacular view and the sounds of nature all around, or inside the room, the massage is as tranquil as in the spa. After the treatment guests can relax on their bed or flop onto a deck chair without ever having to completely regain consciousness.

The Monkey Orange Massage adds a different dimension to Swedish massage.  I wanted to create a treatment that not only was unique to Singita, but also captured the essence of the Kruger National Park – a true “Bush Spa” experience.  Monkey oranges are part of the calabash family – a round fruit that hardens when dried.  Inspired by the wild monkey oranges growing on the Singita concession, we designed a treatment using the fruit as “tools” to create pressure and pounding for easing tension and removing trigger points; as well as gliding over the body for relaxation and stress relief.  The African Marula and Neroli oils that are used, complement the monkey oranges for a completely holistic African spa experience.
