An Exotic Escape for the Body and Mind

Retreat to the Rasul Chamber for a holistic experience in an African Byzantine-styled mosaic setting that is unique to the Saxon Spa and Studio. Enter the exotic steam temple under a thousand stars for the traditional Arabian cleansing ritual, ending with a warm tropical rain shower to wash away the muds and every last drop of tension in your body.

An ancient Arabic bathing ritual, the Rasul treatment uses mineral-rich mud along with heat and steam. The cleansing ritual, or ceremony, is meant to be therapeutic in several ways in that it targets all five senses; and is the ideal was to relax, cleanse and detoxify your body. Three different coloured medicinal muds and a prescribed facial mask are applied to the face and body, whilst gently inhaling steam. This helps to cleanse the respiratory system, smooth the skin and detoxify the body.

At the Saxon, this exotic multi-sensory relaxation experience is ideal for small groups to enjoy together. You will be presented with a tray of African originated body exfoliators and body masks, which are rinsed off with a refreshing ‘rain forest’ shower. Thereafter, make your way to our floatation pool where you soak in a salt pool, resembling the same density of the Dead Sea.
