The 3 Best Professional Spas in Nairobi (With Prices)

In Nairobi, the streets are plastered with ads for massage parlors, often featuring scantily clad women, suggesting they might offer more than just a professional massage. But what if you’re seeking a legitimate, no-nonsense massage experience? Here are some top recommendations you should consider.

Typically, the best professional spas are found in 4-star and 5-star hotels. The suggestions I’ve gathered come highly recommended from user-generated content on platforms like Reddit and Twitter.

I wouldn’t advise going for the spas and parlors advertised on the roadside, especially in neighborhoods like Kilimani and Kileleshwa. Instead, I suggest focusing on the legitimate spas.

In Nairobi, a deep muscle massage usually starts from around KSh 3,500 and averages at KSh 4,000. While it might be a bit painful during the session, the results are worth it.

Your muscles will feel relieved, blood flow will improve, and you can even opt for additional treatments like a full body scrub, including feet and face. Professional spas are well-versed in anatomy and execute these treatments expertly. So, pampering on a spa day is totally worth it, even for men.

If you’re unsure about which type of massage to choose, a good starting point is a Swedish massage combined with deep tissue for problem areas. Hot stone massages, both traditional and deep tissue, as well as Thai massages, are also highly recommended options.

1.Serenity Spa Gigiri

It’s likely on the pricier side, but if you’re watching your budget, I’d suggest considering this option. It’s situated in upscale neighborhoods like Kitisuru, Gigiri, Karen, and Tigoni, which explains the premium pricing.

They offer a variety of services including face and body treatments, grooming, nail care, hair styling, and even coffee.

Their services range from:

  • Footloose: Kshs 1500 for 20 mins
  • Head Neck Shoulder: Kshs 3500 for 45 mins or Kshs 1800 for 25 mins
  • Back Massage: Kshs 3,500 for 30 mins
  • Sole Therapy: Kshs 2500 for 30 mins
  • Enzyme peels: Kshs 11,500 – 15,500 for 45-60 mins

They also offer discounted rates on various massages, such as:

  • Holistic Massage for 60 mins at Kshs 4500 instead of Kshs 5000
  • Deep Tissue Massage for 90 mins at Kshs 8000 instead of Kshs 8500
  • Deep Tissue Massage for 60 mins at Kshs 5500 instead of Kshs 6000
