Luxury bespoke holidays to The Residence, Mauritius

More than just a beauty centre, the Sanctuary Spa is a 600 square metre temple of serenity and relaxation. Drawing on the principles of Zen philosophy, it offers treatments for both body and soul. The gentle soothing aromas that greet you and the exotic furnishings with spice coloured drapes and curtains induce a sense of rest and wellbeing. A range of services including yoga, meditation, massages and beauty treatments are offered. The Carita Haute Beauté concept was created in the 1960's in Paris under the creative inspiration of two French sisters who were called 'the magicians of beauty.' Carita is synonymous with luxury and innovation in the domain of beauty care. The Carita spirit, both innovative and daring, is perpetuated today through treatments of excellence provided by the 'artisans of beauty' of La Maison de beauté Carita. The Sanctuary has also introduced the Ytsara method, which means "freedom" in Thai, bringing together the knowledge of ethno-biologists and aromatherapy. This new holistic method of well-being and beauty was inspired by centuries old therapeutic virtues of Asian remedies and techniques.
