Having both your sense of sight and sound suspended, and floating in a tank of salt water, gravity, space and time all seem to bend. I think everyone will have a unique experience, but ultimately I think if you can surrender to the... More

I always enjoy the holidaze time...the space between Christmas and New Year when you float about in a somewhat timeless place, closing chapters and reflecting and making intentions for a new year. Being in Cape Town for this time was incredible, and having treatments at Ubuntu Wellness Centre was just perfect. Floating in the tank was magical as always and... More

A Fantastic sensory journey... from check in to check out. A Beautiful space, an holistic Gem that is created by the best team, in a beautiful location. The float, the massage, the healing, the conversation while hugging THE tree. I loved it all. I left replenish, fulfilled, repaired. Thank you Ian, Reiki master and extraordinaire. I am grateful to the... More

I would say one of the best experiences i have ever had, i felt invigorated. The spa is well located and very slick. The ambiance in the rooms was perfect... More

I have used floatation tanks in the past so thought I would give this a go. The set up is not as polished as some I have been to, and made the experience a little less complete. The facilities were very basic. no body wash, shampoo etc provided, and towels smelled a little damp. The rooms were plain and not... More
