The combination of authentic African techniques and Western massage creates the ultimate relaxation experience and promotes wellbeing throughout the body. Traditionally performed to rejuvenate and cure malaria, fatigue, muscle pain, inflammation and other body ailments, Ukuchina massage is also a popular postnatal treatment for women and has been passed down through generations.

Anantara Royal Africa Eastern Facelift is a new approach to an age-old tradition. It incorporates elements of traditional Chinese medicine, face mapping, acupressure points and meridians, lymphatic drainage, lifting and sculpting techniques in order to assist with the flow of the Qi energy and the inside-out balance of wellness and beauty. It's designed for all skin types and is the ultimate natural alternative to Botox.
