Win with Sugar & Spice Spa

And just like that, it’s mid-January 2018!
Back to school, back to work, back to reality for most, so hands up if you’re desperate for a pamper?
I’ve got an insanely good body exfoliation, wrap and massage package at Sugar & Spice Spa at De Charmoy Estate to giveaway to one lucky reader.

But first, let me tell you just how amazing it is ;)

At the end of 2017, I attended the launch of The Chocolate Garden, which is situated within the magnificent gardens at De Charmoy Estate in Canelands, just 5 mins north of Mount Edgecombe. It’s since become a popular coffee and food stop for families and friends, complete with a kid’s playground, beautiful gardens inspired by all things chocolate and the cutest bunny & guinea pig hutches – really delightful!

With a menu designed by Beetroot and Bear, a garden designed by Lindsay Gray, and the extremely capable management team of De Charmoy Estate headed up by Lauren Machanick, this beautiful venue offers something completely different to any other I’ve visited in KZN recently. As the first of its kind in Africa, The Chocolate Garden includes chocolate coloured, scented and tasting plants, including the likes of chocolate tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and herbs.

And now to add to that amazing arsenal, the Sugar & Spice Spa has also opened, offering a tranquil escape from reality, in the same beautifully landscaped surroundings.


I was invited to enjoy a wonderful afternoon of pampering, under the care of Zama who has magical hands – I even asked her to come home with me ;)

First up was a 60-minute Body Cocoon treatment, which included a full body exfoliation to improve blood circulation and remove dead skin cells, followed by a nice hot shower – my skin felt like butter after that! Then back into the treatment room for a 20-minute heated Mandarin & Sandalwood Detox body wrap – a sticky ‘mud’ is applied by hand to your whole body, which is then wrapped in a thick plastic sheet for around 15 minutes. It was at this stage that Zama gave me a head massage, so I drifted off to sleep before waking myself with one of those little snores – ha! {She made me feel better and said everyone did that ;) }
My skin was flipping glowing afterwards and it was so good to have this done after the excess of Christmas – I felt like a new person!

There’s a quaint little courtyard outside the spa, complete with an outdoor spa bath and treats table, laden with fresh fruit and chocolate muffins and an array of herbal teas – and on this occasion, bubbles – the perfect inbetweener in preparation for my next session :)

For the next hour, I floated away during a full body Marula oil massage, which is designed to work on your lymphatic system, improve your immune system and infuse Vitamin C into your skin.
And yes, I was a shiny, floaty, happy lady afterwards – bliss!!!

Thank you Lauren & Zama for the most magical afternoon – I cannot wait to visit again x

    Ooh I’m all about the facials to keep my skin fresh and beautiful and of course nothing beats a full body massage specially since I do a lot of laborous work. I’ve never had a mani or pedi so it would be even more amazing to throw those in there!
