Little Kulala to Launch Holistic Desert Retreat in the Namib Desert Wilderness Reserve
Undergoing a major renovation, Little Kulala, Wilderness Safaris’ acclaimed desert retreat in Namibia’s Sossusvlei region, creates a new holistic health and wellness retreat in the heart of Kulala Wilderness Private Reserve.
Incorporating a range of thoughtful elements, including an all-new spa and farm-to-table menu, Little Kulala aims to deliver trips that encompass full physical, mental and social well-being.
âWe believe in a self-sufficient approach to wellness, and simply being in our extraordinary wilderness areas – spending time in the natural world, away from the crowds and the intensity of everyday life – guests have the opportunity to recharge. Said Alexandra Margull, Managing Director of Wilderness Safaris Namibia.
âWe are introducing a number of options to enhance the overall experience of our guests at Little Kulala, such as a wide range of soothing spa treatments, an enhanced menu with an abundance of herbal meal choices and rejuvenating outdoor adventures. â
When completed, the new spa will be a private space with an outdoor terrace where guests can relax after a treatment.
Margull says it will be designed as a refuge and a place to relax after exposure to the harsh desert outside.
âThe spa will be a sanctuary where our guests can enjoy welcome hydration,â she explained.
Little Kulala partners with Healing Earth, a luxury goods house specializing in natural body care products to provide treatments.
The signature Sossusvlei Desert Escape treatment begins with a full back exfoliation followed by a thirst-quenching Namib Melon body massage, completed with a jade crystal facial massage.
Other treatments include Miracle Repair, a luxurious anti-aging procedure using African potato balm to repair skin at the deep cellular level.
Body Rebalance is a soothing aromatherapy massage using indigenous phyto-oils tailored to the individual needs of the client, to leave them glowing, relaxed and hydrated.
âThe overall experience is more than just a spa treatment,â adds Margull, âthere is nothing better than the silence of the desert, gazing at the spectacular dunes or gazing at a million stars to rejuvenate your soul. . ”
Ensuring that guests have enough activities to take care of their physical well-being, emphasis has been placed on offering innovative activities inside and outside the camp, ranging from nocturnal scorpion rides, from ecological quad biking and hot air ballooning to hiking and running.
Additionally, a selection of self-guided and guided trails also provide the opportunity to explore incredible private areas of the reserve that are not accessible by car and observe local wildlife on foot.
Finally, each suite is equipped with a set of exercise equipment for guests concerned with further preserving their health and well-being. Included are a yoga mat, dumbbells, a kettle ball, an ab roller, a jump rope and an aerobics strap.
