Trend Watch: Spatopia

This Spring it’s all about rejuvenation, delicious food and pampering and we’ve found the perfect experience to indulge in thanks to Suncoast Towers Hotel Spa, check it out… 

We’re all for living the good life and when it comes to great pairings nothing works better than dinner and a movie or live music and the company of great friends. But we have just discovered a hot new favourite and it comes in the form of a delightful food and spa pairing all thanks to Suncoast Towers Hotel Spa. Escape to the coast to celebrate the new season with delicious food and some spa pampering and indulge in a little spatopia.

The Socialite recently discovered the blissful experience on a recent stay and now you too can experience it for yourself and enjoy the culinary delights of Executive chef Sandren Govender. Suncoast Towers Hotel Spa has transformed its therapeutic spa menu to include the authentic Durban Indian flavours from its signature restaurant Jeera. The local hotspot specializes in authentic Indian dishes from all corners of India. Its name reflects the distinctive flavour and aroma of the restaurant’s dishes; as well as that earthy and warming feeling of good food.It’s a truly unique spa experience and with Durban’s warm hospitality and pristine coastal setting your biggest problem will be not wanting to leave.

Spa manager Simika Narang wanted to challenge the conventional approach to having spa treatments in a traditional environment and introduced a menu that transforms the experience to a whole new level. Whether you choose to indulge in the experience with a group of your close friends or spend some time savoring each bite alone, they have several delicious dining options for you to choose from.

The experience begins with a cleansing ritual with a sandalwood scented scrub paired with a chai tea drink to warm you up before the starter. This is enhanced with a sandalwood scent which fills the private treatment room to encourage the mood of relaxation.

Guests can then look forward to well-balanced and nutritious meals rich in taste and flavor. The gourmet cuisine is a blend of fresh ingredients, bold flavors, all while being mindful of wellness and giving guest’s food that nourishes the body and mind.

The journey gets started with a lime, jeera and mandarin exfoliation coupled with a smoked salmon bellini topped with lime and mandarin dressing. For mains, guests can indulge in the cinnamon, clove and mustard oil full body massage followed by a yoghurt, mint and honey body wrap. This is complimented with an aromatic chicken tikka wrap served with braised jeera raita. The rose water and coconut pedicure is incorporated in the dessert course and paired with the sweet decadent flavor of traditional Indian sweetmeat, coconut ice.

It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends and embrace the new season.  Delicious dining with a few thrills, the rejuvenation of the spa treatments set in a truly stunning setting awaits…
