1. Three things to do on the plane to ease jetlag and other travel stresses: Take an essential oil to inhale, drink lots of water and walk around the cabin as much as possible.
2. How a day at the spa can help ease you into your holiday: We all work maximum hours, squeezing in as much as possible, so the best start to a holiday is to just stop. Spa treatments will quickly enable relaxation for a great start to your break.
3. The best spa treatment at Mont Rochelle to prepare you for the flight home is: Africology’s Yoga Massage. It involves some serious muscle stretching, leaving the whole body prepped for that long flight home.
4). How Mont Rochelle provides a sense of Africa and the Cape: We use Africology products because they’re formulated in Africa with natural ingredients. The Africology Spice Journey is a treatment created for the Hammam and uses handpicked spices according to a guest’s needs. It’s a very unique journey, and great for a couple.
5. The best ‘pick-me-up’ that’s easy to make while travelling: Fruit-infused water, especially with cucumber, provides all the nutrients your body needs.
