Did you know that there is a World Sleep Society?
And according to them, on an individual level, sleep is essential for good physical, emotional and psychological health. Here at Morukuru Family we are all for sleeping, napping and dreaming and offer guests plenty of opportunity to indulge in this ultimate form of relaxation.
World Sleep Day is celebrated on 16th March globally. Here are some great trips for getting the best sleep possible even if you are not staying in one of our beautiful rooms or suites.
1: Make sleep a priority – even with the jam packed leisure schedules on offer at Morukuru Family Madikwe, Morukuru Ocean House and AtholPlace Hotel & Villa – set aside at least 8 hours to get some quality shut eye. There’s always tomorrow to go game watching, enjoy some dune boarding or sip on a cocktail beside the pool.
2: Take a nap if you are tired. Our modern world sees resting as time-wasting, but we see it as an important investment in your rejuvenation so that you have energy to tackle the important business of the next day like mountain biking through the fynbos or rhino tracking in the bush.
3: Select a delightful setting . Imagine snoozing under an African night sky in a private sleepout hide in Madikwe. What is more romantic than listening to the call of the wild, whilst drifting off? In Johannesburg at AtholPlace Hotel & Villa,slip into a linen bathrobe, settle into your private suite with a King Size bed and drift off under a luxurious duck-down duvet.
4: Make sure you have comfortable, inviting bedding. All Morukuru Family properties offer highest quality bed-linen on their king size beds. that are 2.10 long and 2.20 (2 x 1.10) wide
5: Block out noise and eliminate as much light as possible. No problems here as Morukuru Ocean House and Morukuru Family Madikwe are immune from excessive unnatural light sources as both are situated in nature conservancies where you might only be disturbed by the crash of the waves or the roar of a lion.
Sleep is an essential time of growth, hormone release and body repair which are all fundamental for learning and memory plus the Dalai Lama says: “ Sleep is the best meditation”.
