WELLNESS IN THE WILDERNESS

Wellness at Xigera is a key priority and we want our guest to feel truly their best, at every touch point during their stay. 

To be at one with nature is part of the intrinsic experience of time spent at Xigera. There is no better place in the world to heal and revive like the wilderness,  so we have placed a huge focus on ensuring our guests have a truly restorative and healing experience.

Our spectacular spa provides a tranquil haven, imbued with neutral colours and natural materials that are in peaceful harmony with Xigera’s surroundings. Architect Anton de Kock, meticulously designed the spa to frame the breath-taking floodplains and riverine forests, and for it to be in complete synergy with its surroundings.
 
His inspiration came from the cycles of nature as they are continuously repetitive and unyieldingly regular, as Anton so beautifully explains, 'They are the perfect continuum of opposites - of life and death, of light and dark …the Sun, the Moon, the entire Universe as well as the "circle of life" which is synonymous with the wilderness.'

Soul-soothing, individually customised treatments will focus on the senses, re-energising and nurturing body and mind, categorised by three pillars restoring, calming and purifying. Our signature B | Africa spa treatments will be complimented by an exclusive spa range by Tata Harper, in order to create holistic spa rituals that offer guests a multi-sensorial escape, whilst honouring the importance of using natural products and share our philosophy on sustainability. All of our treatments includes hyper-potent, 100% natural and nontoxic products.
