Book a Tranquil North Star hotel weekend to detox your body into 2021.

The ultimate tranquil hotel venue to detox your body starting 2021.


You wake up refreshed at sunrise. You open the curtain to watch the golden sun rays shine over the ocean. You open the sliding door, step onto the balcony and feel the fresh Indian ocean sea breeze float over your skin. All you hear are the waves and the soothing motion of the ocean. You step outside your room, heading down the stairs for a morning swim. You sit on the edge of the pool, slowly moving your feet in the pool water sipping on a freshly prepared green smoothy. You lie back on the day bed, close your eyes and bask in the morning sun. It is a refreshing and rested start to your day listening to the waves and the birds in the distant. You fall asleep floating with the ocean sounds. A short while later Makiwa wakes you up with a surprise message.


The best way to start a body detox is to eliminate toxins. Start by eliminating alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, and saturated fats. Toxins harm the body’s healing process. Our daily stressful lives is also a hindrance to your body.  The right amount of stress is healthy, but a continuously stressed lifestyle create toxins that slow the body detoxification process. Yoga and meditation are both calming activities to reset your physical and mental well being. The tranquil beachfront location of the North Star Micro hotel in Umhlanga rocks offers a serene detox experience.


Here is a list of a few detox tips to keep in mind. Eat plenty of fibre. Eat oats, brown rice and organically grown fresh fruits and vegetable void of pesticides. Excellent detox foods are beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed. Cleanse the liver by taking milk thistle and drinking green tea. Vitamin C is a healthy supplement to help with liver cleansing.


The holy grail of detoxing is to drink plenty of water each day. Slow down to breathe deeply and allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your body. Positive affirmations lead to positive emotions, transforming your emotions into happiness.  All detox tips focus on exercise. Exercise rids the body of toxins and races your heart rate that creates a refreshed mood. If running or extreme activities are not for you, try yoga. Yoga provides a full body work out and focus on the body and mental alignment.


A rejuvenating home detox remedy is to practice hydrotherapy.  Step into a hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes. Dry-brush your skin or try detox foot spas or a bath to remove toxins through your pores. Special brushes are available to use. The bustling promenade is a short walk from the North Star Micro Hotel with a beautiful view of the ocean while you go for a walk or a run. The rooms are all equipped with a modern glass shower and a bath to refresh after your exercise activities.


The green smoothie at the North Star consists of apple, spinach, mint, celery, cucumber and honey. Smoothies are liquid vitamins feeding the body with natural nutrients. The benefits of drinking smoothies are to increase the number of whole foods and help with natural body detoxing. Smoothies consist of fibres that keep you full and satisfied assisting with weight loss. The fibre and healthy foods will help you to eat fewer calories contributing to weight loss. The nutrients will lead to improved skin tones and skin health. You can order your morning smoothy in advance to wake up and enjoy a refreshing smoothie in the shade of the big Palm tree.


Makiwa offers you a fresh glass of water with lemon juice and limes. Mam, we are ready for your massage. You get up from the day bed after a thirty-minute nap and walk towards the massage bed next to the pool in the palm tree shade. It is six-thirty in the morning. The warm Indian ocean air is balmy.


The benefit of a massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. A massage promotes the release of endorphins, producing feelings of wellbeing. It is one of the ultimate relaxation methods to reduce stress.

A full body massage reduces muscle tension, improves body circulation stimulating the lymphatic system. A massage helps with joint mobility and flexibility to help the body recover after strenuous exercise. After an invigorating outdoor massage next to the pool, you will feel heightened mental alertness and reduced anxiety. The spacious luxury rooms at the North Star offer airconditioning sufficient to retreat to your room for comfortable sleep in the North coast summer climate. There is a jacuzzi available to book to bubble your body into complete contentment.
