A cool sanctuary in Australia’s rich red desert, Spa Kinara (meaning ‘moon’) sits low in the sand dunes at Longitude 131°, connecting the sky to the earth and offering travellers a welcome retreat. Inspired by the design of the ‘wiltja’, the traditional shelter of the land’s indigenous ancestors, guests at Spa Kinara experience a sense of true calm and of being grounded in the landscape.
A signature menu of rejuvenation and relaxation treatments embrace Central Australia’s surprising resource of native beauty products, including Kakadu plum, quandong, irmangka-irmangka, desert lime, Australian yellow clay and nutrient-rich Australian desert salts.
A powerful bush medicine used by indigenous Anangu ngangkari – traditional healers – irmangka-irmangka (pronounced air-a-monger-air-a-monger) or Scented Emu Bush has beneficial healing properties and is used in many treatments at Spa Kinara. All proceeds from the sale of the balm go to the NPY Women’s Council ngangkari and their work in the region.
Spa Kinara also features LI’TYA spa care products and massage techniques. Meaning ‘of the earth’, LI’TYA is a body of healing rituals and spa treatments that integrates the ancient aesthetics of the Australian earth and spirit.
A physical and spiritual refuge, Spa Kinara unites body and soul under the gaze of the nation’s sovereign natural icon, Uluru.
