Vacations & Travel - - Global spas - By Sue Wal­lace

The smell of frangi­pani and other tropical blooms greet you as you en­ter Cha­hoya Spa by L’Oc­c­i­tane, set among man­i­cured grounds in a quiet cor­ner of Broome’s Cable Beach Re­sort. Once through the doors, you know you’re in for a treat as you are im­me­di­ately co­cooned in com­fort, well be­fore your treat­ment starts, in one of seven pri­vate suites adorned with orig­i­nal Sid­ney Nolan art­work. Cha­hoya, which is the Ja­panese word for pam­per, is a nod to Broome’s rich Ja­panese pearling her­itage and the peace and tran­quil­lity as­so­ci­ated with Ja­panese cul­ture.

While there are many treat­ment op­tions on offer, the pop­u­lar two-hour sig­na­ture Cha­hoya Dream­time treat­ment, in­spired by the Kimberley land­scape, is per­fect. It uses in­gre­di­ents sourced from the local in­dige­nous com­mu­nity Lom­bad­ina, in­clud­ing Kakadu Plum, the world’s high­est source of Vi­ta­min C. It starts with an in­vig­o­rat­ing Kakadu shea scrub fol­lowed by a nour­ish­ing wrap, al­low­ing time for the na­tive ex­tracts that stim­u­late col­la­gen for firm­ing, bright­en­ing and re­ju­ve­na­tion, to soak in. A re­lax­ing foot and scalp mas­sage leave you feel­ing to­tally re­laxed. After a warm out­door shower in the pri­vate court­yard, a 60-minute body mas­sage en­sures skin is deeply nour­ished and re­newed. It’s a per­fect treat­ment after a day around the pool of the award-win­ning re­sort, or on nearby Cable Beach. ca­ble­beach­
