In the heart of Cape Town’s Cape Quarter lies Eastern-inspired Mai Thai Wellness Spa. If you’re looking to escape reality and be transported to a land of luxurious scents, herbal teas and ultimate relaxation, this is the place for you.

The Spa

The moment you step inside, you feel a wave of calmness and serenity wash over you. From the small brass bell calling to be rung by hand to signify your arrival to the plush couches adorned in exotic fabric occupying the waiting area, from the aroma of scents that envelop the space to the exotic panel fans turning on the ceiling and the selection of teas on offer – Mai Thai Wellness Spa is the epitome of subtle Thai luxury. It is, therefore, no surprise that this family-owned spa was voted the number one Wellness Spa in South Africa by TripAdvisor in 2018, as well as nominated for not one, but two, World Luxury Spa Awards. Fitting in perfectly with the heritage of the Cape Quarter, this unique spa uplifts and rejuvenates the mind, body and soul through traditional Eastern healing rituals and botanical recipes.

While you await your treatment, you are handed a delicate cup of Thai herbal tea and provided with an explanation of the varied benefits the tea provides to both your body and mind. There is no element of feeling rushed into a therapy room here – you are encouraged to slowly sip your tea, page through inspiring travel books and select your favourite natural and organic oils to be used during your treatment from the range provided. Even before you have slipped out of your clothes and into your gown, you feel calm, relaxed and cared for.


The Treatments

From European-inspired facials, to out-of-this world massages and luxurious mani’s and pedi’s, Mai Thai Wellness Spa offers a wide variety of 5-star treatments where ancient wisdom is combined with modern expertise. The highly-trained therapists from around Africa, as well as Thailand, are warm and inviting and make you feel as though your treatment is of the utmost importance to them.

Although all the treatments are noteworthy, if you are in search of something indulgent and feel the need for a total reboot and rejuvenation, the Mai Thai Signature massage is the treatment for you. Designed to help with stress, jet lag, poor circulation, burnout and fatigue, this treatment is second to none and should be experienced by everyone at least once. The Mai Thai Signature Massage uses stretching and palming techniques to uplift and revive whilst combining the benefits of a Deep Tissue Aromatherapy and Thai massage. It is difficult to put into words the pure healing and pleasure that is experienced during this one and a half hour long treatment. Using 100% natural oils from Thailand, this signature treatment guarantees not only boosted energy levels and restored agility but also an easing of muscle tension and stress relief. Do yourself a favour – sign out of reality and check into the Mai Thai Wellness Spa – your body, mind and soul will thank you!
