Come heal your body at one of the loveliest healing sanctuaries on earth.

The Henry Jones Healing Sanctuary at Old Joe's Kaia

Old Joe’s Kaia is an iconic landmark in the South African tourism landscape.  It has operated as a guest house for over 60 years.  Lovingly maintained and managed by partners, Paul Drews and Marian Cottle, Old Joes is a refuge to behold.  It was established by Marian’s grandparents in 1954. By 1984 it had developed into a fully fledged guest house registered as Old Joe’s Kaia.  Now, fulfilling its true destiny, this extraordinary country house has been transformed into an exclusive healing sanctuary in partnership with the Henry Jones Wellness Institute.   

Here, you will heal your body and discover true wellness.



We turn the kitchen into a classroom at meal times, so that our guests learn how to prepare the most delicious whole-foods, plant-based meals from expert chefs.  The secret to eating healthily is knowing how to prepare meals you and your family will enjoy at home.



We can accommodate 15 guests in a variety of rooms, rondavels and log cabins. The rooms are uniquely decorated, each with its own country charm. All units have a balcony or veranda and bathroom en suite (bath and shower).  



Working in the garden is a wonderful healing therapy.  Our guests get the chance to roll up their shirt sleeves and dig their fingers into soil. Whether its picking fresh veggies for the table or planting seedlings for our next season, the organic vegetable garden will reconnect you to nature.



It is essential to open neural pathways by stretching your body.  The studio is the perfect place for you to learn Henry Jones's Yochi stretch routine and practice his 10 healing stances.



Walking a labyrinth is a very therapeutic way to practice mindfulness, calm your mind and restore balance and harmony within.  The labyrinth at Old Joe's Kaia is very special indeed.  Our guests get to walk it daily as part of their healing program.



The meticulously kept grounds at Old Joe's Kaia are breath taking.  Manicured garden paths meander through dense vegetation, punctuated by pause areas for our guests to enjoy during quiet time.

You'll love every minute of the time you spend with us at Old Joes Kaia. It's the perfect place for you to...

Heal your body. Open your mind. Awaken your spirit. Free your emotions.
