Healing Earth Excels at World Luxury Spa Awards

It is with great gratitude and pride that we announce our success as the BEST BEAUTY PRODUCT and BEST LUXURY DESTINATION SPA (for MAUA Wellness at Zuri Zanzibar) in the prestigious 2019 WORLD LUXURY SPA AWARDS.

Established in 2010, the World Luxury Spa Awards is the pinnacle of achievement in the luxury spa industry, offering international recognition as voted for by guests, travellers and industry players alike. Over 250,000 international travellers vote each year during a four-week period to select the winners.

Our award as BEST BEAUTY PRODUCT BRAND in Africa recognises the world-class quality of our pure and premium luxury spa and lifestyle products as well as our innovative holistic wellbeing concepts and earth-, animal- and people-friendly ethos.

What’s more, our prestigious partner spa MAUA Wellness at the five-star Zuri Zanzibar has been awarded the accolade of BEST LUXURY DESTINATION SPA in East Africa. With a truly holistic experience that goes far beyond the usual spa or hotel add-on, Healing Earth and MAUA offer a world-class transformational wellbeing journey for discerning travellers the world over.

The news was announced at the gala ceremony in St Petersburg, Russia over the weekend, where we delighted guests with gifts of our award-winning products, sharing a memorable piece of Africa with the world.

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for all those who have helped us become the globally-acclaimed brand we are today. From our dedicated team and prestigious partners to our fans around the world…we are truly blessed and honoured to share the love of Healing Earth and the healing powers of Africa with you all.”

Healing Earth Scoops Prix d’Excellence Award

From across the African continent to Europe, the USA and beyond, discerning clients, media and industry leaders around the world have been raving about our famous African Potato Face & Body Balm as a wonder product since we introduced it to the market as the first of its kind.

Since then, it has won numerous awards and acclaim, both local and international. Most recently, Marie Claire has named it Best Local Product in their prestigious Prix d’Excellence de la Beauté awards for 2018. Each year, Marie Claire rounds up, tests and celebrates the best beauty products in the world in the highly-anticipated awards. This year, they enlisted the help of some of the most knowledgeable and hands-on women in the industry to help them judge the prestigious awards. More than two months were spent testing the products and carefully choosing the best of the best in each category.

Packed with vitamins, minerals and powerful organic bio-identical active ingredients, the award-winning multi-purpose balm boasts an unmatched concentration of pure actives that elevate it to a league of its own. It can be used on the whole family to assist in any kind of damaged or sensitized skin, from wound healing to eczema, psoriasis, chapped lips, skin allergies and more. It can also be used as a powerful antioxidant face mask, and is exceptionally nourishing for environmentally challenged skin. All told, it’s the ultimate SOS balm for healing and reparation on the whole body, including the face.

“This balm is a wonder product that treats everything from rashes and acne to dryness and skin discolouration. It can even be used to nourish split ends,” says Marie Claire.

“I love the versatility of this product. It can be used to hydrate the face, body and hair, so it’s a great multitasker if you’re travelling or on the go,” adds judge and makeup artist Tatum Tomic.

We are so proud that our legendary creation continues to make waves in the industry and help people across the globe achieve their best skin (and hair!)…naturally.

Healing Earth Honoured in Asia Spa Awards

We are beyond proud to have been shortlisted for the accolade of Natural Product Line of the Year in the prestigious Asia Spa Awards!

The awards recognise the best in spa and wellness offerings in the region, and we were honoured to have come to their attention thanks to our partnership with the other-worldly Hurawalhi.

We are humbled by our recognition across the globe, and remain both faithful to our roots and ever grateful for the doors our wonderful partners continue to open for us.


In the wake of its recent success as Winner of the prestigious 2016 World Luxury Spa Award, the Healing Earth Spa at Abalone House is delighted to announce having been selected amongst a host of global competitors to be awarded the additional accolade of 2016 Continent Luxury Spa Award as crowning success.

Established as the world’s leading Awards initiative for Luxury Spas, The World Luxury Spa Awards aim to encourage the progression and enhancement of service standards within the global Luxury Spa Industry, defining benchmarks in quality, innovation and service for spas around the globe. Nominations are evaluated by a panel of independent industry experts, located across 144 countries. Judging criteria are based exclusively upon facilities and service excellence, both evaluated purely in terms of votes cast by spa guests and industry experts.

Situated in one of the oldest fishing villages on the West Coast of South Africa, Paternoster, widely believed to have derived its name from the Latin term, “Our Father”, Healing Earth is a premium African Spa brand, offering natural, organic products, therapies and spa concepts to clients emanating from across the world. It also operates several flagship spas around the globe, and provides products, treatments and training to a multitude of other five-star facilities situated throughout Africa and across the Globe.


Over and above using only earth-friendly methods and ingredients, the Healing Earth Spa honours its commitment to its investment in Africa and all her beings through its Healing Earth Foundation, which aims to nurture and develop conscious, healthy earth children through outreach projects and initiatives enabling impoverished communities to connect holistically with the self, the environment, and all fellow beings.

Commenting on the news of their Award this morning, Founder of Healing Earth Spa, Elisabeth Brandt, stated, “We are truly honoured to have received this highly acclaimed Award, and immensely proud to have done so on behalf of South Africa, particularly as this year’s Finalists originated from a vast number of countries around the world. We would also like to extend our appreciation to all the clients who voted for us and assure them of our continued dedication to the superlative level of services with which our name has become synonymous”.

Brandt went on to add, “We have a nurturing, conscious approach to beauty, based upon love for oneself, one’s fellow human beings and the earth we live on; particularly that of Africa – which is why we attribute our success to the truth inherent in the wisdom of Nelson Mandela’s 1994 Inaugural Speech statement ‘When you touch the soil of our land, you feel a sense of personal renewal’. Evidently, the Great Man was right … and, indeed, it would appear the world agrees.”
