This Winter, there will be a unique opportunity to be part of a once-in-a-lifetime customisable, transformational retreat at the exquisite Future Found Sanctuary, Cape Town’s only eco-luxe mountain retreat of its kind – one that combines the serenity of the lush South African natural landscape with the luxury of modern comfort, 5-star hospitality and the soulfulness of African artisanship and its unique healing botany.

By embracing the abundance of the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the most biodiverse places on the planet,  this 7-acre secluded luxury escape with a distinct, holistic wellness focus, offers an unparalleled opportunity to form a deeper connection with yourself through transformative wellness and spiritual activities, holistic treatments, wellness practices and time spent in the elements, whether in the estate’s beautiful gardens, or high up in the forest or mountain. Embrace the restorative energy of this abundant, diverse ecosystem and benefit from the wisdom of indigenous flora and fauna and the pure energy of this iconic location in these ancient mountains, all of which will help align your inner self with the rhythms of nature. And of course, help you reconnect with your authentic self.

Choose from 9 private suites or an exclusive-use villa with a plethora of nearby activities, hikes, vineyards and eateries to enhance your retreat. The architecture and design of Future Found Sanctuary upholds a deep appreciation for nature and simple, down to earth luxury to allow you to attain total peace of mind.

Customize your retreat with daily Mindfulness Meditation, Qigong, Tai Chi, Acupuncture & Energy Healing, Forest Bathing, Mentorship Sessions, Organic ‘Plants as Medicine’ Nourishment, and much more. Led by renowned  Doctor of Alternative Asian Medicine and Qigong & Tai Chi Master Dr Michael Lan, and facilitated by his entrepreneur-wife Anina Malherbe-Lan, this will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity to prepare yourself for a new way of living as our world rapidly changes and become more and more difficult to keep up with. By reconnecting with your authentic self and relearning how to live anew with empowering daily spiritiual-mental-physical alignment practices, you’ll be ready for any storm ahead.
