5 STAR COUNTRY HOUSE VILLA AND GOURMET GETAWAY

Unwind

Time out for some therapeutic relaxation

Spoil yourself at umSisi House

We have a number of yoga teachers and massage therapists who can be booked during your stay at umSisi House. They have been practising various Healing Arts for over 15 years - in cities, luxury game lodges and now here with us. Your stay at umSisi House can only be made more relaxing and rejuvenating by spoiling yourself to a treatment with one of these gifted individuals. Please book ahead to avoid disappointment and enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating treatment, ensuring a meditative experience that stills the mind, restores energy and creates inner balance.

Massage

They have trained in a variety of massage disciplines including Swedish Body, Aroma-Thai, Aromatherapy, Sport / Deep Tissue, Indian Head, Reflexology, Lymphatic Drainage and more. They use their years of experience combined with their intuition to unwind tension and stress in the body and mind.

Yoga

Our teachers offer a gentle Hatha / Vinyassa class - preferably outdoors or on our veranda overlooking the vast valley below umSisi House or a more vigorous Kundalini class. Their passion lies in connecting their pupils with nature, and the full African experience, through stretching and strengthening the body and mind with a relaxing yoga experience.

Enjoy a unique shopping experience just up the hill where Europe meets Africa

The sad reality is that at the rate rhinos are currently being poached, there will be no rhinos left in the wild within a few short years. Lets all stand together and fight for their future.

  • Return guests say it best – “We have stayed here several times and love the little cottage. It's perfect with my three year old. It's totally equipped for self-catering and you have the option of delicious home cooked meals prepared by the owners if you prefer (and when they don't have house guests). Would definitely recommend to stay here for couples and families. Also we have stayed at umSisi House which is gorgeous for larger groups wanting a gourmet getaway.” Tripadvisor review from Casey C. www.bit.ly/umSisiTripAdvisor1
