Tucked away in Midrand is a lovely oasis where you can unwind, relax and be completely pampered.
My sis and I found Mmathibedi Eco Spa while browsing through Groupon specials and we booked ourselves the Package for Two which saw us receive a foot scrub, full body massage with hot stone therapy and we ended the day off with a light lunch.
What I’m always wary of when I get to a spa, I get depressed when I walk into the change rooms as I know that the robes will never fit and I’ll always have to ask for a llarger size (which usually isn’t available) but i was happy to be offered a bib in addition to the robe which ensured I had full coverage and had no fears of flashing anyone!
Our therapists, Kgabo and Lerato were so welcoming and warm we ended up chatting like old friends while we were halfway into our foot treatment. The foot scrub did not only include lathering up our toes with an all natural scrub but we also had a foot massage which came when we needed it after a weekend at the Joy of Jazz.
We were then ushered into one of the massage rooms where my sister and I gave a sideways look at the stones in the ‘steam cooker’ wondering if they were going to be warmed up and then placed on our backs. The full body massage and hot stone therapy helped ease out all the tension in the muscles that had spent the weekend gallivanting Jozi nightlife and left us both wondering why we hadn’t booked one of these earlier!
We were served a light lunch of lightly seasoned grilled chicken with a side salad and some juice; with bubbly on offer.
The spa has been around for about five years and recently had a revamp adding a salon and other treatments. What I also liked is that they have a mobile spa which is perfect as a treat for a bride and her bridal party or a fun way to kick off a birthday weekend celebration without having to leave your home!
So whether you’re planning a spa day with the girls, some quality time with your man or simply want to get away and be pampered for a day, book a treatment or two at Mmathebedi Spa.
