Kinkeliba. A uniquely West African herb, traditional medicine for many internal maladies-of the stomach, kidneys, liver; it rejuvenates dull and dry hair, it heals lumbago. Its concoction is rightly known as the “infusion of long life”.
If you are in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, you can get to experience the soothing power of kinkeliba in a seamless melding of massage techniques and traditional African pharmacopoeia at Kente Sky Spa, nestled in old Cocody, the city within sight but far from its din, and a fantastic view of the bay to get you relaxed.
Black pepper is hot; its extract isn’t something to dabble all over you with reckless abandon. However, at Kente Sky Spa, you can actually get a black pepper bath-it will sweat you out and so relax you.
But if you want to dip yourself in something more luxuriant, why not try cocoa at the spa?
Maybe black pepper and kinkeliba are like being dunked in the deep end for you; no worries, there are plenty of options to choose from; there’s shea, honey, eucalyptus, lavender, orange blossom, lemon, and countless traditional aromatic herbs to choose from, all natural, and all produced by Kente Sky Spa.
If you are looking for a scrub, you’ll likewise be spoilt for choice; do you want lemongrass, coffee, hibiscus, mango bark, or something that incorporates fermented papayas? You choose.
Just how different is the Californian from the Oriental massage? Is pink clay wrap better than Dead Sea mud? The answers to these and many other similar questions will be delightfully kneaded into you when you drop by the Kente Sky spa, an oasis of tranquility that you should include in your itinerary when in Abidjan.
