I had an excellent massage here. It was quite deep and exactly what I needed after my Kilimanjaro climb! My therapist (Asha) was blind and knew exactly what to work away at - she was excellent. I left feeling like I had a new body!...More

Went twice: once for the 90 min Mrembo massage, and once for the Singo + massage. Very nice little place, very nice and professional staff. Maybe the Singo is not really worth it, but the whole experience was definitely very good.

I really wish I could give Mrembo Spa five stars as it's the most authentic/traditional massage parlour in Stone Town and supports disability employment. Women should try the flagship "singo" treatment - natural scrub used for preparing girls for marriage - while the "clove kidonge...More

Loved this spa with its natural products and very capable women running it. Provided worldclass spa treatments and opportunities to buy their products from their store. Be sure to book.

It depends on what treatment / oil you have with the massage and whether you are paying in shilling or dollar. I see the website has a telephone number and an email address. It may be best to ask them directly.
