The 10 Best Spas in Nairobi

Living in Nairobi is fun and exciting. It is one of the most fast-paced cities in Africa, after all. But the daily grind and the sheer effort of getting around the city can leave you stressed and worn out.

Thankfully, there are spas in Nairobi where you can decompress and revitalize the mind, body, and spirit. These spas transport you to a serene setting. 

From mani-pedis, facials to full-body massages, I’ve compiled a list of the best spas in Nairobi offering luxurious pampering that’s sure to leave you in stress-free bliss. 

Book an Exclusive Spa Package With SpaDreaming

As you’re looking for spas in Nairobi, then you’ll need to know about SpaDreaming. This spa booking platform is partnering with several hotels and spas in Nairobi and other parts of Kenya to make it easy for you to find affordable, unique spa experiences.

The hotels like Villa Rosa Kempinski, Jacaranda Hotel, ibis Styles Nairobi, Movenpick Hotel, and Hemingways Nairobi.

We can all agree that spa treatments can get expensive; you’ll be happy to know that you get a discount when you book through SpaDreaming. I would argue saving some money is almost as relaxing as getting a spa treatment, right?
