4pm – TIME TO UNWIND

Travelling can be tiring, so once you’ve settled in to your room or suite, had a leaf through the latest issue of The Grove Buzz and checked out the generously-stocked mini-bar, it’s the perfect time to wrap yourself in a robe and take a trip to the spa. Enjoy a soak in the Jacuzzi, a relaxing yoga session, or a spa treatment to ease you into relaxed holiday-mode.
