We are feeling very privileged to be amongst 6 other international spas included in an article entitled “7 Unique Hotel Spa Treatments That Enhance Your Travel Experience”.
“Traditional Zulu Healing Consultations at Fordoun Hotel and Spa, South Africa: Set in South Africa’s serene KwaZulu-Natal Midlands about two hours from Durban, Fordoun Hotel and Spa is a bucolic farmstead turned boutique spa hotel purpose-built for peaceful getaways. Spa treatments incorporate 120 indigenous Zulu medicinal plants foraged from the onsite garden and also include sessions with the Zula healer, Traditional Dr. Elliot Ndlovu, an experienced inyanga (traditional medicine healer) and sangoma (spiritual healer). Consultations are designed to help solve current and future health problems, with proposed remedies including bespoke herbal concoctions or targeted treatments. Guests are also invited to address more esoteric issues or opt for a general wellness session. Other spa treatments at Fordoun include an invigorating Rasul Treatment, which uses white clay harvested from the base of the Drakensberg mountain range during the full moon, and the Nduku Nduku Massage with knobkerrie sticks, wooden Zulu rods traditionally used as weapons or ceremonial objects.”
