Jiva Grande Spa’s are unique in providing a holistic approach to relaxation therapy inspired by ancient wisdom.
The Jiva Grande Spa philosophy is inherently rooted in India’s ancient approach to wellness. Jiva’s philosophy is one which believes that a spa unfolds the holistic path of life that opens out channels to nurture ones’ life force. It’s this deep understanding of mind, body and spirit as well as their individual needs and interdependency which Jiva Spas embrace.
Jiva signature experiences are treatments exclusive to Jiva Grande Spas and have been carefully recreated from the fabled lifestyle and culture of Indian royalty and the healing therapies that embrace the spirituality of the culture. Included is the Cape Fynbos treatment exclusively primed from the botanical treasures of South Africa.
This journey to ultimate relaxation begins with a scrub and wrap, specially prepared from rhassoul clay, Atlantic sea salts and rooibos tea powder. The scrub and wrapexfoliates, tones and enriches your skin, leaving it supple and smooth. Guests can feel their anxieties and tension dissipate as Jiva Spa’s skilled therapists massage-in a bespoke signature blend made from local marula oil with fynbos, a range from Cape Fleur, leaving guests revitalized and energized.
Finally, guests may transcend into a sense of bliss and tranquillity as they sip a specially commissioned signature Cape tea, brewed from the herbs of marula and rooibos.
More than just legendary treatments and ultimate relaxation techniques, Jiva Grande Spas present world class hospitality to their guests. The same time-honoured rituals of welcome, greeting and farewell, which has captured many a visitor´s heart in India, are part of the Jiva Grande Spa experience.
The essence of ancient Indian wisdom and culture are reflected by the many rituals. From greeting our guests with “Namaste” head bowed and hands folded to the foot bath which has traditionally been performed as a sign of respect, Jiva Grande Spa strives to not only welcome their guests but show how much their visit has been appreciated.
The Amy Biehl Foundation has empowered 5-18 year old youth in the impoverished townships of Cape Town for 20 years.
Their mission is to provide a safe environment in challenged and vulnerable communities as well as provide the best Children and Youth programmes available. These programmes are aimed at developing emotionally well rounded youth who make positive life choices and become contributing members of society.
Reaching over 1,500 youngsters every day, the foundation works tirelessly to give hope and a brighter future as well as alleviating problems associated with HIV/Aids, poverty, substance abuse, gangsterism, violence and crime.Healthy alternatives to all these negative influences in the form of educational and cultural activities have afforded these students the opportunity to unlock their creative talent in becoming future leaders and entrepreneurs for South Africa. This year we are inviting friends, fans and all who want to get involved, be they guests, corporates, sponsors or just good Samaritans to join us in supporting this inspiring foundation.
We will have a dedicated box placed in the Lobby Lounge which we will fill with stationery for underprivileged children. Any stationery and educational items such as colouring books, flash cards, crayons, colour pencils, chair bags, dictionaries, calculators etc, are welcome and will go a long way to improving the education of children in the townships. Alternatively, a selection of stationery items is available for purchase at the Hotel Kiosk. All proceeds from these sales will go directly to the Amy Biehl Foundation.
The accumulated stationery from guests, staff and the public is to be donated to school starters aged 5-8. Taj Cape Town will deliver the donations to the kids on Friday, 17 January 2014.
Taj Cape Town provides stylish accommodation in Cape Town this festive season. For more information about this wonderful initiative please email the Taj Cape Town team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
