In December I was lucky enough to be invited to enjoy an authentic Thai massage at the newly opened Ey Spa in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, opposite the Blue Shed. This is as authentically Thai as it gets.

The luxurious Thai spa caters for both men and women and offers an exclusive range of treatments and experiences – Traditional Thai Massage, Nimue Facial Treatments, Comfort Zone Body Treatments, Manicures & Pedicures, Reflexology and Cosmetic Procedures. All treatments are done professionally by Thai therapists and local South African beauty therapists. The therapists are very sensitive to your needs and definitely put your comfort above all else. Throughout the massage the Thai therapist made sure to ask me whether the pressure was okay and if I found everything comfortable.

Elixir Café at Ey Spa offers a range of healthy, raw and natural freshly squeezed fruit and veg juices as well as light meals to enhance your experience.

The spa is gorgeously chic, the service is impeccable and the relaxation factor as high as it can be.

Be sure to visit this fabulous spa. I’ll certainly be back.
