Mangwanani African Spa: The Cullinan

Hello everyone!

This is my first post as a Mangwanani African Day Spa brand ambassador, and I am so proud and excited to be affiliated with this brand.

If you have ever been to a Mangwanani branch, you will know that what they offer is not the average spa treatment, it is an experience. If you want to unwind and completely spoil yourself, please do check in for a half or full day spa. You will not want to leave! The thing is, we spend so much money on other mundane things. We think visiting a spa is extravagant. Let me tell you it is not. I am not a qualified medical doctor, but I do believe that most illnesses are caused by stress. The daily grind…trying to excel at your job, being the best mother, wife, partner…whatever situation you find yourself in. Affording yourself the opportunity to be taken care of, centering your mind and body – is therefore of utmost importance.

Mangwanani Zevenwacht is my favourite. However it is on the other side of the world for most. I lived in Kuils River, I know the journey :-) . So for those of you not able to venture out into the Northern Suburbs, they have the cutest boutique spas situated in the Cape Town City bowl area. I visited the spa at the Cullinan Hotel. So beautiful and luxurious. They are open until 9pm at night. Very convenient if you want to pop round after a long day at the office.

My treatment was an hour long full body massage. Top class. The ladies take such good care of you. You lie down on those heated beds and every single stress and strain melts away. The soft background music makes you feel as though you are in Bali. You have a choice of three various types of massage oils (I always choose ‘Nurture’, which is a rose blend). For R350, you should do this at least once a month.
