Poor food choices, lack of sleep and exercise, stress and our busy lifestyles, often leave us feeling exhausted. Brookdale is the perfect getaway to recharge, take control of your life and evoke an awareness around your health and wellbeing.
As you drive through the gates of Brookdale with cellphone turned off, you can feel the stress lifting. The peace and quiet is immediately obvious with only the sounds of the birds and the scent of jasmine. Embrace the silence, relax and unwind.
On arrival a consultant presents the treatment menu and activities, ensuring all your personal needs are met. The rooms are comfortable and private, and as you peel off your clothes and wrap up in a white dressing-gown, prepare to embrace some gentle lifestyle changes.
Each morning a tray of herbal tea and your daily schedule – including your daily treatments – is quietly delivered with a gentle wake-up call.
Three meals a day are served in a central dining room. The food is delicious, yet healthy and nutritious. Juliet, the head chef, is on hand to explain the menu, and even though the portions are carefully controlled, you are never left hungry. A variety of teas are served between meals, as well as a morning and afternoon snack.
Exercise is vital at Brookdale, but the intensity is up to the individual. If walking is your thing, then an early morning walk through the nearby forest is perfect. Or perhaps you like Pilates or yoga? For the more energetic there’s a fully equipped gym and full-length indoor and outdoor pool. A steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi offer a welcome relaxation opportunity after your exercise session.
The endless gardens are tranquil and filled with colour, with a labyrinth and reflexology garden offering a unique relaxation opportunity. A trip down to the brook is a must for every guest. Sit quietly while the water trickles past and the birds sing sweetly in the nearby trees.
Daily talks about exercise, nutrition, supplementation and a make-up demo add value to your stay, improving your lifestyle decisions, and equipping you to live a more healthy life.
Brookdale is a special place that not only offers the ultimate pampering experience, but provides you with the motivation and skills to leave you feeling recharged, energised, and ready for life.
