More Than Your Average Big City Spa

24 Aug


Within two hours today I recived two separate notices about happenings at Spas in Gaborone. One was a new fashion outlet, and the second an art exhibition. Well! It seems then, that spas in Gaborone are the new cool and new hip. Actually, the hood where both these spas are based is called Extention 9 (or Phologolo to the google maps savy) which is a highly sort after residential area of Gaborone with Huge garden space and Beeg houses. It does help dispell that well perpetuated myth that there is little to do in Gabs if the spas are also jumping in with lifestyle offerings. It just goes to show that life is what you make it.


So… go shopping for African design ladieswear available in size 30 to 36 from Ankara Designs at Urban Space. Ankara Designs will be officially opening at 6pm on Thursday 25th August, where you can meet the madness behind the method, Mpho Laing. She promises to send fresh Naija fashion every month for your shopping pleasure. For the launch on Thursday 25th August, you are reminded to bring BWP50.00 with you for wine and canapes.

When you are done shopping go see an exhibition at Paraiso Express Spa and Tea Garden called P ART 1 EXHIBITION – Underneath The Stars. This is, “…a selection of contemporary Artwork by three different artists by the spa’s pool side.” The art work will be, “a selection of exquiste realistic pencil drawings, stencils and mixed media on canvas. Exhibit will be up from September 3 to November 3, 2011.”
This one is free so no one has an excuse not to go.

While you are there make sure to get a mani/pedi or itsy bitsy little facial as well.
