Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - THE GROVE -


Dain­tree Rain­for­est Rit­ual A BLISS­FUL state of re­lax­ation was the or­der of the day at the Dain­tree Rain­for­est Rit­ual at Ex­clu­sive Spa, where I was treated to a cleans­ing body buff, warm clay wrap, warm rain­for­est wa­ter­fall be­fore re­lax­ing un­der a beau­ti­ful mas­sage. Of­ten in our busy lives we for­get to take time out to pam­per our­selves and dur­ing this Road Test, I was re­minded of the re­ju­ve­nat­ing qual­i­ties of re­lax­ing un­der the ex­pert hands of Ex­clu­sive Spa. When I en­tered, I was greeted by Pep­per’s Spa su­per­vi­sor Cathy Tay­lor who in­tro­duced me to the prod­ucts avail­able. Af­ter don­ning a soft robe, I en­tered the treat­ment room for the Dain­tree Rain­for­est Rit­ual, a cov­ered out­door area with a metal leaf-shaped bed in the cen­tre, which was sur­pris­ingly com­fort­able. First off was the smoked pa­per­bark oil mas­saged on to my skin, then a beau­ti­ful quan­dong ker­nel buff, ex­fo­li­at­ing and re­ju­ve­nat­ing my skin. Then I was cov­ered in lo­cally-sourced red ochre clay, be­fore be­ing wrapped to soak in the nu­tri­ents and draw out any im­pu­ri­ties. While soak­ing, I was treated to a blue cyprus and na­tive mint scalp treat­ment un­der hot tow­els, be­fore I had the treat­ment washed off my body with their hot rain­for­est wa­ter­fall. Af­ter com­ing back to re­al­ity, I re­lo­cated to a soft mas­sage ta­ble where I re­ceived a beau­ti­ful aro­matic mas­sage. It was a beau­ti­ful treat­ment that I would rec­om­mend; Cathy made me feel very com­fort­able as she scrubbed and mas­saged out all ten­sion, leav­ing me in a bliss­ful state of re­lax­ation.
