Talise Spa Etiquette
Arriving at Talise Spa
We recommend that you arrive 30-60 minutes before your scheduled appointment, to give yourself time to relax and use the facilities.
If you arrive late for your appointment, your treatment time may have to be reduced.
Preparation for spa treatments
It is advisable to shower prior to all body treatments. Shaving amenities are provided in the changing room. However, it is recommended that men shave a few hours before their facial appointments, rather than just before.
What to wear
When you arrive, we will provide you with a comfortable robe, disposable underwear and slippers. After changing, unwind in the relaxation area where your therapist will greet you and escort you to your treatment room.
The spa environment is one of tranquillity and relaxation. Please respect our peaceful ambiance as well as the privacy of other guests.
In keeping with cultural values, please show modesty when using the changing areas and wear a swimsuit when using the spa facilities.
Valuables and jewelleries
We recommend that no jewellery be worn during spa treatments. If you bring valuables and jewellery with you, a place will be provided for their safekeeping, but please note that we cannot be held responsible for them.
We kindly ask that you turn your mobile phone to silent mode when you arrive to allow you and our other guests to relax.
Talise Spa is a smoke free facility.
Consultation and health conditions
There will be a consultation with a qualified spa practitioner before your treatment, where any health concerns or special needs can be addressed. Please advise us if you suffer from any medical conditions, injuries and allergies or if you have any special requests when making your booking as some treatments may not be safe or suitable to be carried out.
Please advise us if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, when making your booking as some treatments may not be safe or suitable to be carried out.
To ensure your comfort please let our therapists know whether the pressure applied is suitable for your needs, to ensure that you relax and receive the perfect spa experience.
It is recommended after some treatments, i.e. exfoliation, that you avoid sunbathing for at least 2-3 hours. Your therapist will recommend sun protection products which can be purchased at the Talise Spa Retail Shop.
Can be purchased for a specific service, package or amount at the Spa reception.
We recommend you drink water before and after treatment to help flush toxins from the body.
Please allow sufficient time before your treatment to digest after eating, at least 2-3 hours is recommended for body and massage treatment. We also provide our healthy eating menu in the Talise Aqua Cafe.

Discretion of management
At the discretion of the Spa Manager/ Spa Director, guests may be asked to leave orbe refused entry into the Spa area if aspects of their behaviour impact on the experience of other guests within the facility.
Sauna and Steam
The sauna is dry heat that warms your muscles and starts the relaxation process. We recommend up to 10 minutes at a time. The steam room is wet heat that is effective in opening the pores and is wonderful for the respiratory system. We recommend five - six minutes at a time. Both sauna and steam are beneficial before or after all spa treatments.
After spending time in the heated areas, rubbing crushed ice into the body is soothing and the experience showers are a good way to cool down quickly.
Incorporating a number of features to enable the bather to self-administer massage, the pool is heated to temperatures up to 32 ºC. It is equipped with ergonomic loungers designed to provide full body air jet and swan necj massages.
