While you’re there

Santé Wellness Retreat Restaurant

The Day Spa boasts an indoor pool, individual saunas and steam rooms (should you prefer your privacy), and a sun-kissed dining area for lovely, light lunches that can be enjoyed in your spa gown and slippers, if that’s your preference…

All meals prepared in Santé’s kitchen are free of sugar, dairy, gluten, preservatives, colourants and additives – yet you’d never believe it. Presented beautifully, and made with seasonal produce and innovative healthy alternatives, Santé puts to bed the misconception that food that’s good for you has to be dull and tasteless.

The concept of wellness and natural living flows throughout the retreat, with careful consideration going into each and every aspect of the experience – making Santé the ultimate sanctuary for an immersive and holistic rejuvenation experience.
