Pure Pampering in Paradise

Healing Earth is thrilled to announce the launch of a bespoke collection of pure and premium lifestyle amenities developed specially for Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi.

Kudadoo is defined by the ethos of freedom reimagined, a place where private getaways come alive effortless adventures and tailored experiences, catering to the most discerning traveller. It was with this is mind that Kudadoo approached Healing Earth – with over three decades of expertise and as recognised leaders in innovative natural spa, wellbeing and lifestyle products – to develop a range of signature products that would both reflect and respect the pristine natural surrounds of the private coral island.

Adept at creating luxury green amenities tailored to the unique needs of five-star destinations across the globe, Healing Earth partnered with Kudadoo to create two bespoke premium ranges – naturally nourishing Ocean Pearl and gently indulgent Soft Coral. After a year of development, the perfect collection of products came to fruition.

Aligned to both Healing Earth and Kudadoo’s philosophy and values, the products break away from traditional room amenities to offer a spa experience in the privacy and comfort of the guests’ own bathroom. “As a company we strive to lead and innovate, as such we are excited to unveil these new-generation amenities. It is an honour to be able to synergise with properties and destinations that appreciate the value of quality products without the artificial ingredients of years gone by,” says Elisabeth Brandt, Founder of Healing Earth.

These world-class natural products are lovingly created by Healing Earth Founder Elisabeth Brandt alongside the Kudadoo team. The collection consists of expertly blended pure aromatherapy formulations perfectly balanced with sustainably sourced antioxidant-rich grape seed oil, unique to the pinotage grape of South Africa.

The strong antioxidant qualities of the vitamin C and E of the pinotage grape seed, skin and leaves offer a natural skin defence against environmental damage. Healing Earth’s pure pinotage oil contains the most potent source of polythenols, an essential protective barrier to UV exposure and other free radical damage.

The Soft Coral collection boasts a pure aromatherapy blend of uplifting neroli, healing basil, refreshing grapefruit, relaxing rose geranium and invigorating blood orange. The therapeutic formulation serves to elevate mood, invigorate the senses and aid relaxation. The perfect complement to this offering, the Ocean Pearl range harnesses the therapeutic effects of ground basil, warm wood and clary sage, fragrant bergamot and jasmine as well as nourishing oak moss and pearl to leave guests feeling calm, relaxed and refreshed.

These are perfectly captured in a deeply moisturising body and bath oil, luxurious bath foam and salts, gently exfoliating body scrub, invogorating facial refresher, gentle yet effective insect repellant, refreshing herbal mouth wash, uplifting room mist, protecting hygiene spray, nourishing shampoo and conditioner, fragrant hand & body wash and lotion, cooling after sun gel, protective sunscreen and handy lip balm.

As with all Healing Earth creations, the products contain bio-identical active ingredients, organic essential oils and Fairtrade botanicals meticulously chosen for their unique healing properties. Not only are the product’s ingredients natural and biodegradable – the bottles are also made from recycled glass.

What’s more – guests will be happy to know that they are supporting compromised women and children in South Africa just by enjoying these luxurious products. The Healing Earth Foundation runs an active outreach programme that offers weekly yoga and personal development workshops at centres for abused women and their children in Cape Town. A portion of the proceeds of every product sold goes towards supporting this initiative.

“We are excited to be able to bring offer guests a bespoke spa experience as part of their stay at Kudadoo. It was important for us that the product wasn’t only an indulgent experience for our guests but were sustainable as well. I think through our partnership with Healing Earth we have been able to achieve this, essentially creating a more meaningful guest experience at Kudadoo,” concludes Bradley Calder, General Manager, Kudadoo & Hurawalhi.

East Africa’s First Destination Wellness Retreat

“We believe in the power of dreams, leading from the heart, celebrating diversity, serving with integrity and transforming the world…one step at a time.” – Healing Earth

Many of us are experiencing physical, mental, emotional or spiritual challenges that are blocking our flow of energy and vitality, pointing us to the aspects of self and source that we aren’t connected to. A true experience of wellbeing – of feeling and operating at our very best – involves a holistic approach that meets our needs in each area – physical health, emotional nurture, mental clarity and spiritual nourishment.

After over 30 years of collective experience and in-depth research in the transformational wellbeing field, Healing Earth is proud to announce our launch of East Africa’s first destination wellness retreat at Zuri Zanzibar.

Decades of our own transformational work has lead us to partner with the best people in the industry to launch a new era of holistic wellbeing for true balance and stress management. Born of our love and passion for what we do, the tried-and-tested programme is perfect for the needs of today’s fast-paced world, and the results have proven transformational for those looking for real change.

No ordinary hotel add-on or spa concept, the meaningful and memorable experience will enable guests to get just what they need for wherever they are on their own personal development journey – it’s an opportunity for them to listen to the voice within and transform their lives from the inside out.

Setting a new trend in transformational wellness, the authentic and experiential journey based on sound research invites guests to enjoy a new level of travel with purpose, catering to a fast-growing demand for raising the bar in conscious destination programmes.

Today’s wellness traveller is looking for a more immersive experience – a journey that will allow him or her to connect to self and source while experiencing the culture, community and natural attraction of a new destination.

Guests are no longer satisfied with disconnected treatments and offerings, and are looking rather for real healing that allows them to return home renewed and better equipped in body, mind and spirit.

A collective manifestation of everything the brand stands for, the wellness journey that Healing Earth has created at Zuri combines the team’s decades of expertise in holistic wellbeing with its unique natural products to transform the way health is perceived and experienced by travellers.

Based on the cornerstones of Energy, Focus, Transformation and Wellness, the journey offers an all-encompassing approach to wellbeing that’s truly effective in helping guests to rejuvenate, heal and reconnect to the moment in the exquisite Zuri surrounds.

Our mission is overall health of body and mind, and the offering includes a variety of sessions, workshops, classes and more to facilitate this. Think everything from yoga, pilates and nutritional consulting to life coaching, reiki, meditation, kinesiology and, of course, our renowned spa treatments.

Add to this the pure and premium spa and lifestyle products with which we’re spoiling guests, and you’ve got an offering made in health heaven!
