After 4 days in the game park my husband was in need of some treatment as he has many problems with back and shoulder. We came upon this little gem. Candace took the time to help my husband with a deep tissue massage, she targeted his problem areas and has vast knowledge on therapeutic massage. Thank you for giving him some comfort for the remainder of our trip.

Went with a friend. I had a deep tissue with the owner, Candace, and had a 5 star experience: professional, scrupolous, technically proficient, would go back anytime for it. My friend was treated by an assistant who probably still had things to learn and who didn’t make her too happy. Pity, because I would have loved to return before my departure the next day. I will definitely go back and ask for Candace’s expertise.

We enjoyed a good massage at a great price after travelling for 2 weeks. It is uncomfortable when the phone rings or there are conversations going on since the space is very small. I would suggest to try and improve the facilities and the bathroom to be used by guests. It is a place with a good intention good service. Sales of some small jewelry and beauty products, as well as tea.

Worst massage I have ever had, I specifically mentioned my right side of the body was sore. She massaged the left side for 80% of the time then I asked if I can extend it for half an hour to target the correct side and she lied and said she is fully booked even though my friend asked and she said they have two spots open. Don’t go here !

Going to a massage salon is always a bit of a gamble. Seldom is it really bad, 90% of the time it is average, but every now and then you find the real deal: a place where they are passionate about what they’re doing and really know what they are doing. At Amala I found both aspects indeed. I liked the professionalism and skill of the masseuse, as well as the cleanliness of the place. Don’t expect a big city spa resort. Instead you will find yourself in a very authentic, almost cute, salon with a very good ambiance. And instead of just doing a routine massage, I was asked about what specific complaints I had and the massage was expertly tailored to my needs. For this reason I can highly recommend this place, not only for a relaxing massage, but also if you have specific complaints that need professional treatment. 5 stars for Amala Spa

When I visited on a rainy morning to fill time, I received an average general massage, which was quite relaxing. However, despite being called Thai massage, when I went for the "deep tissue massage", it was neither traditional Thai massage (as I have had many over the years) and it was not really deep tissue either.
The massage itself was OK, so if you're just looking for a general massage it will probably meet your needs, but it was not that cheap either at 340 Rand for an hour.
