It’s that time of the year again… Most of you are finally going to get the chance to take time out and relax. You might be thinking of travelling to get away from the stresses of the year that was. This month and the rest of the festive season into the new year, we have an assortment of pamper treats to help you unwind, relax, and distress.
Last Saturday, I spent two agonizing hours capturing my clients heavenly experience at the Camelot Spa at the Grand Palm in Gaborone – agonizing because I had to take photos of them experiencing pure bliss. Camelot Spa is a world class franchise that has centered themselves at only the grandest hotels around the globe. Tucked neatly away, off the corridor connecting the Peermont Walmont to the GICC you will be whisked away into a cool haven. The air is light and crisp and smells of sweet soft toffee. The decor is rich in coppery and gold tones and textures, there are pink and white orchids in contemporary vases at every turn and the staff are the most congenial and patient I have ever met in Botswana – truly a world class reception. Camelot Spa uses Thalgo products imported from France to give even the most discerning of clients a life…

I was with a few friends recently having our usual rand conversations and I am not entirely sure how we got to this topic but we got into a discussion about nails and nail care. One of them pointed out a habit that I think I also need to break… Perhaps you do too… He said that he has noticed that sometimes he just lets his nails grow out of control… Perhaps you do too… He said that he has noticed that sometimes he just lets his nails grow out of control… well maybe not that bad but you get the idea… He says that it coincidentally dawns on him how bad his situation is when there is a young lady around… To be quite frank with you, this has happened to me before and it is quite embarrassing. I mean lets be honest, no girl likes a guy with long and presumably dirty finger nails. The thing with it though is that you keep telling yourself that you will get it taken care of but for reasons I also do not understand, you just don’t get it sorted or you do but all wrong.

A lot can be said of the hot stone massage; its origins as wells as the physical and psychological benefits to the human body… today’s post is not one of those explanations. Indulge me if you will as I take you on a journey of discovery and give you a glace into my experience of this massage therapy.
One of the things I enjoy the most about being part of the Camelot Spa family is experiencing the world class treatments and of course sharing them with you. I especially enjoy hearing about other people’s first time experiences and so today I want to share one of those stories.
The following is my friend Goitse’s first time experience…
Forgive me, but this is going to be a rather lengthy story because well, we black folks love telling long stories 😂

It has been quite some time since the last post I do apologize for my silence though. These past few weeks I have taken to do some reflecting and am glad to be back at this again. In the spirit of keeping things authentic, we have decided that sharing personal experiences of the treatments we offer here at Camelot Spa is the right approach for our blog posts starting with this very post about my recent experience of the Deep Tissue Massage.
Prior to my going to try it out, I found myself in a taxi a while ago with a friend and for reasons that are not quite clear to me at present, I took out the Camelot Spa Price list and looked at it for a moment after which my friend asked to have a look and I let him take a look. As he was reading through, he asked me, “What is this deep tissue massage thing? It sounds very painful…” I didn’t have much to tell him but made a promise to get back to him about it. Having had the experience now, I am in a better place to tell my friend and everyone else what it is really like to have a deep tissue massage.
Ever since I started working for the spa as their social media guy, I have always been very curious about and wanted to get a taste of the Camelot Spa experience. For the past 4 and a half months I have made it my life’s mission to get people excited about the stuff that is going on at the spa and more importantly to create a desire to come and get a treatment or two in that individual who for whatever reason, like myself had not yet gotten a spa treatment. Today’s post is a personal experience of what my first time getting a massage at a spa.
As all first times go, I really did not know what to expect. To be perfectly honest with you I was really nervous thinking of all the things that could go wrong… Don’t get me wrong I was also excited at the prospect of getting my first massage at Camelot Spa, an award winning luxury spa even… You should know though that generally I do not have any real body image issues but the thought of being seen by a stranger without clothes was just nerve wrecking. Not that I would be completely naked, a level of modesty is always preserved for these things… I guess I just couldn’t help but feel a little self-conscious it being my first time and all. I knew from the moment I made the booking though that after the massage, I would never be the same again. Part I was really Thinking of what it would feel like and all the things that would go wrong.
