Michelle Roberts Longevity Feature

Dr Michelle Roberts is a director and shareholder at Black Pearl in South Africa. The international spa that I would recommend is The Spa at the Four Seasons in Firenze, Italy. There are a number of reasons why this is my favourite spa. Firstly, the situation of the spa in 11 acres of ancient gardens in the middle of Florence makes for a spectacular setting. On your walk to the Spa from the hotel, you are enveloped by ancient trees dating back to the 18th century and brought into modern life with the placement of exquisite sculptures throughout. The spa itself sits next to the swimming pool and is full of natural light and the refl ection of the water. Secondly, the staff at the spa are outstanding, attentive in every way, exceptionally professional and most expert in their craft. Thirdly, the treatments available are unusual and usually one of a kind. A treatment experience at the spa at the Four Seasons is not available in many other places in the world. The treatment that I would recommend is the Lux Perfection Treatment, which is the spa signature treatment developed by Black Pearl in collaboration with Lucia Papalini, spa director. It is an absolute indulgence of 24k gold on the skin, and coupled with other rare and intense anti-aging complexes delivers results with no compromise on luxury.
