Absolutely Beautiful spa with a beautiful rooms & bathrooms. You really do feel like you are in a jungle spa somewhere is Asia. The therapists are very good & have unique massage techniques that provide a very relaxing & rejuvenating experience. I had the 90 minute signature mai thai massage and it was great. My friends had other massages & they all loved it. I was disappointed though that we weren’t offered any tea after our massage as that is something mentioned in their advert. Not that I’m short of a cup of tea but if you stipulate it in your menu, you should at least offer it- also it was a cold rainy day & the ice water we were given wasn’t really soothing after a massage. Will definitely be back though.

A phenomenal experience from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. Every little detail was cared for. From the volume of music, relaxing ambience, therapist’s touch and oil selection, the quality and standards are worldclass.
As an educator in the industry, I am especially aware of hygiene and attention to small details. I felt impressed by the the therapist’s knowledge & skill. The massage was specific to suit my needs, intuitively performed and left me feeling calm and relaxed. Clientcare was gentle, kind and discreet.
I will definitely go back for more and remcommend them to anyone who needs a little self-love & me-time.
Thank you Mai Thai

What an incredible place in the middle of Cape Town! This is like no spa we have ever been to before! It is WOW!!!!Like on ANOTHER LEVEL! The interiors are out of this world beautiful and authentic, everything looks luxurious yet comfortable. Seriously amazing! Everything is spot on and very very clean. The music was good, the smell of the spa is lovely, you FEEL like you are on holiday in Thailand from the moment you walk in the door till you leave. The staff are like nowhere else. Our booking made late in the evening via email was answered promptly. When we arrived a few days later, the staff made us feel at home from the security guard who opened the door for my girlfriend and me, to the first class hospitality, to the filtered water they offer you, and even to their extraordinary garden courtyard which is a perfect place to take pictures! Our room was this subtle shade of blue and had a spectacular chandelier and unbelievable ceilings. All the Covid-19 regulations were followed but done in an non-intrusive calm manner. And as for the MASSAGES!!! This staff know what they are doing. The mix of Thai and African therapists is a win-win. I had an African therapist called TANDI, she was 100/10 she was so good. She was magnificent, honestly on top of her game. My girlfriend also loved her Thai therapist MAMM, she was fantastic too, these therapists know what they doing. They are the real deal.Both my girlfriend and I highly recommend this place, we can't stop talking about it and cannot wait to go back.

An incredible experience from the get go. After making an internet enquiry I was contacted by Linda and talked through the entire process, everything from the hygiene protocols at the spa to the post-massage care routine, all was explained in much detail. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with masseuse Nui, a bubbly and well informed individual who is truly passionate about what she does. Definitely booking another visit at this beautiful and tranquil spa.

Mai Thai is a little piece of Thailand at home. A truly blissful experience with incredible attention to detail, I would highly recommend trying it out! I had the most wonderful massage from a very talented masseuse. The spa itself is beautifully decorated, creating a serene and tranquil environment which enhances the experience.
I couldn’t recommend it more!

oh my goodness- could hardly get up after the massage I was so relaxed. Honestly as a self confessed and super fussy massage junkie -this was 15 out of 10.
All round- lovely staff- caring and friendly and professional

A CANNOT MISS MUST DO!

This is a dream come true. I have never seen anything like this. Great concept ... A little bit off Thailand outside of Thailand :)

Hands down the best massage I have ever experience.
If ever you are in the area, do your soul a favour and visit Mai Thai Wellness .. the most warm welcome and absolute bliss from start to finish.
Highly recommended.

From the point of being welcomed at the door to the moment I left after the treatment, I felt so well looked-after. I had the 90-minute Mai Thai Signature Massage and it was pure bliss. Still feeling very euphoric as I type this a few hours after my visit.
Such a positive experience; I'm already looking forward to the next visit.
