Massage room

When you're on holiday, you want to relax, right? Seeing new sights, going on adventures and chilling on the beach or by the pool...

At Footsteps we take relaxing seriously. Not only do we offer you a lounge area where you can recharge your camera and your own battery, you can also get massages and beauty treatments at the lodge.

In our gardens you'll find a secluded, cool and peaceful house for these treatments.

You're on holiday so go ahead and let yourself be pampered!

Relaxing massages

Sore muscles after your flight in or a long walk in the area? A bit of a headache? Trouble letting go of that tension in your shoulders? Awa can help you!

She can give you a head massage, a back massage or a full body massage, as well as a choice of aromatherapy treatments.

All of this with a cool breeze blowing birdsong into the room and thoughts about work from your mind. Sounds good doesn't it? It is even better!
