    Had a wonderful massage and traditional scrub with Asha. I came in sore and achy from 40+ hours in airports and on planes, and left feeling amazing. The scrub was especially lovely, a real treat. I’m hopelessly ticklish and don’t always enjoy massages, but Asha was super considerate about that and checked with me multiple times to make sure I was comfortable. Her technique worked really well for me. the ladies who run the shop are helpful in giving recommendations for treatments and if you want to buy any of their products, and everything is natural and locally made and of course it all smells amazing. Overall their customer service was excellent in a way that was super down to earth - if you’re looking for everyone to treat you like you’re gods greatest gift that’s definitely not the vibe, it’s more like the therapists and staff are genuinely kind and helpful and the whole experience feels very human. (Sometimes spas feel inauthentic, sterile and uncomfortable to me, like I don’t belong because I’m not a multimillionaire, and that was not at all my experience at Mrembo.)

    I thought it was good value for money, and I have no complaints paying a bit more at women-managed small businesses than I would at an assembly line massage at a resort. My only regret was that I didn’t have time for a pedicure too!

    This is a full service spa that offers nail services. I had just gotten a pedi before traveling but the polish didn't last beyond day three. I only needed a polish change, so I came here because of their high rating and lots of reviews in English.

    You can get a mini pedi for $30 USD, which removes your old polish, files nails, and applies new color. I got just the color change for 23,000 shillings ($10 USD) and didn't have to wait at all. I had a choice of about 25 different bottles of polish but only a few variations on the same three colors and didn't see what I was looking for but chose one. They start with a clear base coat, which a lot of places skip for quick color applicatipn. She did a good job applying the color but missed some sides and edges on a few toes.

    The atmosphere is lovely and relaxing.

    Overall, I was pleased and recommend them.
    I would return if I come back to Stone Town.

    The spa is a somewhat confined space but it should not detract from the expertise of the friendly staff and quality of the treatment.After 8 days scuba diving I decided on a 1 hour deep tissue massage to relieve aches and pains and it worked a treatment.I decided to have my hands and feet worked on as well as they were very dry from constant exposure to sea salt water and sun and the treatment was thorough and was very satisfied with the end result.The prices are very reasonable and during quiet periods you can request a 10% discount

    Jacinta knew that I needed a back and neck massage instead of a full body, and I was thankful. Unfortunately, she was the only one there, so she had to tend to the front desk as well. I hope Faith SPA will be in more places around the world. Asante sana, Jacinta.

    Upon meeting Hamisi we immediately became friends. He is soft-spoken and welcoming and knows many of the great Tingatinga artists around Tanzania. His prices are fair and he will tell you all about the style and culture of Tingatinga. Also, he is an incredible masseuse! He was trained in Japan in chiropractic massage. I had some neck pain after traveling and after one session with Hamisi I felt totally better- highly recommend!

    I Really enjoyed this moments in Zanzibar with Agnes and Rose.
    They are really profesionals and well trained.
    We went there 3 times during our stay and after a safari it was my dust detox moment.
    Prices are cheaper than in a hotel or others spa in stone town. They are really flexibles for the hours of the massages.
    I really recommand this place.
