Indaba Spa almost always features a unique treatment as part of the Florida spa’s monthly specials. The Innisbrook Resort spa takes its cue from African culture; Indaba means “gathering” in Zulu. Every month it offers a new African ritual along with a Western one, so you can experience the best of both worlds.
For example, last winter the spa offered the Shingo Ritual, a head massage that uses warm nut oils while soft tribal music played in the background. A Geranium Ritual is offered in May to help transition the body from spring to summer. African cultures believe geranium oil is a soothing, calming balm that’s helpful for fussy infants and anyone feeling “out of sorts.” In June, the Traditional Royal African Arm Ritual is offered, using African argan oil and acacia cream on pressure points to help relieve stiff and sore muscles. Forbes Travel Guide editors thought the Arm Ritual would make a great gift for Father’s Day, especially for the dad who plays a lot of golf.
