    HEAVEN IS NOW CALLED MOWANA SPA !
    Mowana Spa is the best Spa experience ever, and we've been to many. Nothing compares! Every minute detail has been taken into account and there is not a thing one could add to make it more memorable and enjoyable! I highly recommend Mowana for the best pampering session on Earth!

    Everything that is promised in abundance.
    This was my 3rd visit and we were a group of 3 ladies who just needed a time out. The treatments were fantastic and nothing can be faltered. There was more food than what I could assume and the local drinks selection was spot on. You cant go wrong with mamosas for breakfast and it set the tone for the day.

    Simply amazing
    I have visited Mowana spa many times and each time is better than the last. We recently visited on Woman's Day and were spoilt beyond our expectations. The treatments are amazing, and the food was delicious. Its good value for money and we will definitely be back.

    Disappointed
    Hi, I must say that I was not happy with the dinner options, lots of friends and family have visited before and always said that the food was lovely. Fair enough I still decided to go to it despite the different options, the tacos that we choose was extremely underwhelming for a dinner and my friend even got sick straight after eating which made us miss abit of our next massage session. I also selected the hot stones for the full body and I usually it’s use on your legs but this wasn’t the case and the hot stones were used for such a short period on my back. The neck, shoulder and head massage, the time spent should be somewhat divided because our head massage was only done at the end and lasted about 5 minutes. Unfortunately our hopes were not met and we both didn’t leave the spa that night feeling relaxed and rejuvenated :(

    Amazing morning!
    We booked the morning package. Excellent value for money, from the food, treatments and the overall service and facilities. The staff and therapists were outstanding. I would highly recommend Mowana Spa, and I can't wait to visit again. A truly relaxing experience that set me up for the rest of my week.

    Magical Day at Mowana
    Spent half a day at Mowana with a friend a felt totally spoilt from the minute we walked in. Highly highly recommended gem in the middle of Fourways. Proper bush vibe and totally relaxing.

    Fantastic experience in JHB
    Room and breakfast buffet were my boyfriends highlights. I loved the quality of service provided by the Mowana Spa team. The facilities and service provided by Indaba staff were wonderful. My only critique is that the food provided for the spa experience is limited in options for dinner selection and is a slight let down in comparison to how exceptional everything else is. It is great value for money and I definitely will be back.

    An evening at Mowana Spa
    If you looking for an ousting evening right in Johannesburg take the time to spend it at Mowana Spa. The setting is rustic, quiet and relaxing and it’s easy to get to, has safe parking and a great ambiance. The African influence gives it very authentic feel and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious and well plated and nicely spaced throughout the treatments. There is a large selection of treatment options which give everyone the variety of choices that suit them. We had a wonderful evening at the spa and will definitely visit again!

    Sister's Spa day
    Found it very difficult to secure a booking. Once arrived at the spa we were treated like royalty. All meals and treats were above average - we were spoilt for choice. Therapists were amazing with a healing touch and the whole experience surpassed any spa that we have visited before. After treatments we were able to take a warm shower, wash our hair and blow dry our hair before traveling home. Will most certainly return.

My wife and I enjoyed this well-priced night out experience thoroughly. The combination of a three-course dinner, free local drinks, three spa treatments and overnight accommodation with a comprehensive breakfast the following morning makes the evening perfect. Well done to the excellent staff who make every effort to make the evening a memorable one.

Mowana Spa gave a good session, with three long sessions, heads and shoulders, then full body and then legs and feet. with very snacks and supper inbetween. Beautiful place, felt like we were somewhere else which is what we needed. Well worth it as a birthday treat for couples.

It was a wonderful treat, we had a head, neck and shoulder massage followed by a full body massage. In between we had a body break and coffee. The environment is absolutely beautiful, the decor is lovely and the treatment area is quiet with soft meditation music. It is so relaxing you don't want it to end! Lunch was wonderful with a delicious desert and a glass of bubbly. We didn't want to leave!
