The iconic Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara launches an authentic and luxurious spa experience with three new, riverside spa gazebos, giving guests the rare opportunity to enjoy their treatments alongside the mighty Zambezi River.

Rushing water, birdsong, and the calls of nearby wildlife offer the soundtrack to this idyllic setting. Here you can bask in the magnificent vistas together before being nurtured in a Romantic Escapade, a journey which nurtures couples side-by-side with a luxuriant Full Body Massage and a Safari Foot Treat. Or opt for the signature Zambezi Massage, which coaxes a sense of harmony through African floral oil and relieves sore muscles with massage and stretches, also releasing tension.

The menu at Anantara Spa reads like an out-of-Africa odyssey, drawing on revered local experiences and age-old beauty secrets to deliver radiance, relaxation and supreme wellbeing. A mark of all Anantara Spa menus, the Anantara Signature Massage combines Thai and modern techniques with a signature oil blend to stimulate circulation and deeply relax muscles while promoting the flow of energy and overall wellbeing Trusted eastern and western techniques complement therapeutic appeal, and carefully curated packages provide deeply rejuvenating journeys; a welcome balance to action-packed African escapades. The Livingstone Treasure cleanses and moisturises with a Purifying Body Scrub and Hydrating Body Cocoon, followed by a Zambezi Massage and ending with a soothing Safari Foot Treat.

Recharging explorers, Anantara Spa’s signature journeys are designed to replenish energy, relieve tired muscles and soothe sun-drenched skin. Extended three-hour sequences lavish attention and amplify holistic benefits. The Royal Relaxation journey replenishes skin with a Nourishing Body Scrub and a Detoxifying Body Cocoon, followed by a Stress Release Massage to alleviate tension and fatigue, and an Express Facial to restore complexion and vitality.

Facials are personally prescribed to maximise results, and express options provide swift relief, from massages that focus on specific areas of tension, to a pick-me-up facial and revitalizing body treatments. The Zambezi Beauty Express de-stresses and boosts radiance with an Express Facial and a Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage in a seamless package.

The spa’s beauty salon completes guests’ feeling of wellbeing with a range of indulgent manicure, pedicure and waxing services. Guests can also opt for a poolside foot massage, with therapists soothing weary soles amidst the natural magnificence for which the hotel is world-renowned.
