I've been to a lot of massage places almost weekly in Asia including Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong. This place was better than all of them! Fantastic masseurs with a gentle touch but worked all of our knots and pains out. I normally prefer stronger style but didn't need it with these masseurs!

My husband and I visited Ruan Thai massage during our visit to Cape Town. We had a couples massage in the morning and enjoyed it so much we came back the same evening! Staff were friendly and accommodating and listened to what we wanted. Would definitely recommend.

It is always and well worth it when you walk out and your body feels distinctly different, more relaxed. It is not easy to find this kind of gem experience. Well done!

I first went to this Spa 2 years ago and I've recently visited them again after moving back to Cape Town. Service quality is always consistent, the personnel is highly professional and the environment is very clean and relaxing. I became a regular customer and come here for a Thai Oil Massage once every week. I highly recommend this Spa... More

Professional service, good location and clean, tranquil venue. I was impressed! I had a 60 min Thai massage and liked it so much that I immediately booked a 45min oil massage straight after. They were both excellent and I immediately made a follow-up booking for a friend and myself to go in a couple of weeks' time.

I've been to many places that offer thai massages and this has definitely been one of the best if not the best. The therapist listened to what I wanted, concentrated on my areas of concern and executed a professional deep tissue massage.
