The Southern Spa features Li’Tya spa care products. Meaning ‘of the earth’, Li’Tya embraces a practice of healing rituals that combine Aboriginal massage techniques with botanical beauty essences. The Li’Tya spa experience combines a range of sensory therapies that purify, nourish and harmonise the body using the earthy wisdom of ancient Aboriginal medicines and healing philosophy.
To ensure the Aboriginal teachings are genuinely practised at the Southern Spa, the small team of therapists is regularly trained by Li’Tya professionals on the source and traditional use of Australian native ingredients.
Each Southern Spa treatment is a personal journey. Guest are invited to select a therapy that resonates most with their mood or desired focus, and each treatment may be tailored with the addition of a Spa Essential for a complete mind, body and soul treat. All Southern Spa treatments journeys commence with a traditional Aboriginal welcome ceremony and foot soak.
