I was looking for a genuinely good massage but I was not prepared to pay an arm and a leg. The cost here was way over priced for a makeshift type of spa environment, torn white towels turned grey, floral bedsheets and decor that is old and tired. I would’ve preferred paying slightly more and going to an upmarket spa rather than paying an upmarket price for a mediocre spa. The massage wasn’t too bad but the cocky owner/manager that I encountered after the massage undid all the healing benefits of the massage.

From arrival to leaving, it was smiles and the focus was on us.
The reception has relaxing Thai-spa music, and it's kept at an even/comfortable volume.
We were immediately welcomed with a green tea, on a tray, signature water and a heated and rolled face cloth and after that we were escorted to our treatments.
The professional manicure was ended off with a head and shoulders Thai-massage. The other treatment a foot spa and massage was brilliant and relaxing. This was also ended with a shoulder massage.
The staff were friendly, smiling and accommodating, throughout, even those walking through that were not delivering any service to us.

A highly recommended Thai-spa experience, you don't have to go all the way to Thailand.

Booked the 90 min combination massage. My therapist was brilliant but Monica who was my wifes therapist was not. She had no technique and just wasnt interested. We had to stop her a few times to ask what is the problem but she does no speak English. The Worst part was that the usually relaxing music switched over to Gangnam Style! I am NOT kidding, I thought someone was playing a joke however, the therapists were happy to let this music play. The problem now is that every time I hear this song i'm conflicted as to whether I should feel upbeat or relaxed :-)
I told the owner that Monica was not good at all and her excuse was that she has a different technique as she is used to Thai massage. We did NOT book a thai massage. A poor indifferent response from the manager is what led to this review. Never again, be warned

While I really enjoyed the dermatologica facial, the full body aromatherapy massage was rather disappointing, with inconsistent massage technique. Also, the sheets were not clean.

I visited the spa for a full body massage and a pedicure. The spa was vibrantly decorated. The location of the Spa was well suited with ample parking.

The massage was a disaster, I had to stop the therapist and ask her to change her technique numerous times as it was most unpleasant and not the typical Thai Massage I found myself become accustomed to. I found the language to be a barrier with my South African therapist as she struggled to comprehend my questions. My time and money was wasted and she I wasn't even given the full time I paid for. A 60 minute massage should not include the therapists prep time.

The pedicure was by far the worst pedicure I have ever had. The therapist was shocking! She was so unskilled, I can't believe the quality of service that was being offered at this spa. The therapist could not understand what I was saying. The painting was horrible with brush strokes left behind and painting the nail in multiple directions with smudges.

I asked for the owners contact information and the receptionist informed me that the owner never answers. This defeats the purpose of being able to lodge my complaints. I left numerous messages on this cell of the owner with no responses.

Good location ample parking, Ask to fill out health form , however they dont read or implement. The lady massaging needs to be trained how to massage she had no connection with the therapy or me and seemed little under the weather, kept coughing and stopping breaking the flow. Mani and Pedi where much worst she cut my cuticles leaving them bleeding , then buffed them so much they where burning i had to tell her few times. She has no concept of filing at all. All my nails are different lengths and began to split due to her filling. As for Pedi she couldn't even clean under feet...Nails all different lengths over buffing...My poor friend had a it even worst ...the lady who worked on her was her first day...and to be honest she had no experience what so ever....

Nice new Thai spa place to visit in Johannesburg. They could offer specials or each 10 visit for free and they will have much more clients,also need some more advertisement for this hidden place.

Went for an hour Aroma Therapy massage. Was all you would expect - great service, clean, quite and relaxing - and more - the masseuse was very good.

Massage itself was a classic with good amount of pressure and adjustment to where extra attention was needed.

Also friendly welcome and overall nice people. Would come back for sure.
