New manager for renovated Tswalu Kalahari Spa
Corli Schoeman has been appointed manager of the newly renovated Tswalu Kalahari Spa. Corli comes to Tswalu from the award-winning Pezula Spa & Gym, Knysna, where, as Spa Manager, she headed a team of 25. Previously she managed the Wellness Centre at Marlin Lodge, Mozambique where she introduced a collection of natural, island inspired products and treatments.
“With her international experience and extensive training Corli will provide an outstanding spa experience to guests, individualised to exceed expectations,” says Tswalu MD, Russel Binks. “I’m pleased that she has joined us at the same time as we have completed our outdoor treatment area and indigenous spa garden to expand the spa and offer guests another dimension to the experience.”
Tswalu Kalahari Spa is now a combination of sensual spaces which combine to create an inspirational venue for what must be one of the most unusual spa experiences in Africa.
Designed to enhance the natural beauty of the Kalahari and take advantage of the superb climate, the outdoor treatment area is within an indigenous spa garden where guests may find the occasional antelope grazing alongside them and be lulled into a deep state of relaxation by the sound of birdsong.
Surrounded by endless blue skies and the unique vegetation of the Green Kalahari, guests who indulge in the authentic signature massages performed by local therapists, will discover the Spa’s ethos of “closer to the land, closer to the people.”
The indoor spa area is a natural extension of the earth, inspired by nature and the splendour of the Kalahari, with natural finishes and fabrics and simple spaces which together create a sense of tranquility and barefoot elegance.
Guests may also choose to have their treatments at an outdoor tsala, where a rustic structure protects one from the elements and is positioned to give a bird’s eye view of the open grasslands of the reserve against the backdrop of the Korannaberg Mountain range.
Treatments at Tswalu Spa include exfoliation treatments using fine red Kalahari dune sand or desert mineral crystals from the natural mineral rich salt pans of the Kalahari, infused with plant-based emollient rich aromatic oils.
