What: In the Oyster Box hotel's tropical gardens, this spa emphasizes hydrotherapy, incorporating Zulu and Ayurvedic rituals and Elemis, Dermalogica, and Africology products. Facilities include a hammam, and a dry flotation and color therapy bed.
The look: Wooden doors lead to a two-level white-and-pearly sanctuary with six treatment rooms, a serious gym, and a tranquillity area with private tents.
Who goes: Well-heeled Durbanites, international honeymooners, and Prince Buthelezi (Zulu royalty).
The treatment: Match a deliciously scented, therapeutic Africology body balm to your mood for the one-hour Hot Lava Shell Massage and feel tension melt under the shells' heat.
P.S.: Check out the complimentary buffet featuring juices, cookies, and soup (massages, $28-$106).
