$45 for massage and body scrub in a lovely authentic spa, staff a bit kurt and abrupt but massage was good and could shower afterwards although not given a towel to dry and shower didnt have a door on it, rather a screen to hide most of your modesty! had to book 24 hour in advance as they were booked up on the day we initially visited. dont ask me how i found this place - stonetown is a rabbit warren but spa is signposted from some of the alleys closeby. would recommend for an african experience.

great place, they do beautiful massage. the only reason i did not rate it excellent is because it smells of humidity/dumpness. it is pretty strong, but once you get over that, you will never forget this place... recommend for anyone who needs to relax those muscles, and rest for an hour..

The Harusi Special involves a clove scrub and massage. It's truly amazing! The cloves are slightly astringent and will leave your skin tingling all over. The only down side is that the location is slightly awkward, with limited space, meaning that you can hear everything going on in the reception, etc.

I spent a morning at the Mrembo Spa, having a traditional scrub and massage. It was amazing! The spiced tea served upon arrival, the friendly hosts, the delicious smelling coconut oils - I had a massage and walked away with a selection of tea and other body products! Definitely recommend getting a treatment here if you have time. Prices were also much more reasonable than I expected!
