This was our third experience at the Mandara Spa for a couple's massage. After the first one, we were so thrilled that we bought a 10-massage package. Yesterday, we went in for our Valentine's treat and were greated by the usual pipping hot Ginger tea and a red rose for me. We filled our consultations cards and the receptionist came back to inquire the exact details of my husband's recent surgery and brought his massage therapist Nang (who also happens to be a certified physiotherapist) to discuss with him how she'll adjust the massage to avoid the surgery area. My therapist Toom was equally great. I love all the attention to detail in this spa compared to many others. In the private changing room we get slippers, fluffly bathrobes, a safe and two wardrobes for each one's belongings, all bathroom amenities, and proper disposable spa underwear (not the tiny little paper thing that cannot cover anything at all). The treatment starts with a nice warm foot bath with black soap. When you lie with your head down, you get the view of a beautiful oriental flower arrangement. The relaxing music is oriental and plays softly. The therapist's hands are always warm (I'm horrified by those who start a massage or other body treatment with their hands nearly frozen). The massage was just what I requested, with the right pressure and right focus on the areas I cared about. The head massage in the end is amazing. The warm towel that wipes out any excess oil in the end is not only great to prevent stains on your clothes and the risk of slipping while walking, but is also a real bliss. We left happy and relaxed, regretting only that we didn't book a 2-hour massage. We'll be back soon.

Avoid by any means, I sent my mum for her birthday, she is back home injured and bleeding. A problem with the jacuzzi , her heal got sucked in, she tried hard to free herself as no one is around to help, so she got hurt and her heal kept bleeding. There was no one around to help till she got out herself from the jacuzzi still bleeding, and the manager said sorry! Save your money and your life and go some where else worth it. Again avoid avoid avoid .

The Mandara Spa at the J.W Marriott, Mirage City was one of a few spas offering Thai massages in the New Cairo area, (where I happened to be staying). It was a really nice 90 minute experience for me, though I wouldn't call it the best. Funny enough, the best Thai massage I've ever had was in a J.W Marriott hotel, but in another country, on a different continent! So using 'cons' & 'pros', I'll summarize my excellent experience at the Mandara Spa. CONS: First of all, the spa is very hard to find. I didn't realize that this was such a humungous hotel! There were numerous restaurants, a health center, executive offices, a wedding photography shop, barber shops, a bank, banquet/conference halls, a flower shop, hair salons, you name it- all on the way to Mandara Spa! It just wasnt clearly marked. When I did eventually locate it, I was surprised to find out that the ladies spa facilities (sauna, steam room & hot tub) were outside the actual spa itself. You had to come down a cascading flight of stairs, pass by a unisex pool area to access it. The lovely pool area was also mixed, to my dismay. It was a cute place though, but starting to show some wear in the form of rotting wood in the locker area and missing tiles in the steam room. The lady at this facilities area was missing from the front desk on 3 occasions. Her name is HIND. When she did surface, she was kind, but seemed to unceremoniously lounge lazily in the locker area, scrolling on her phone. She just gave me the key to a locker she opened, but there was no towel or robe inside. There were towels by the sauna/steam room entrance, so I just grabbed one by myself. I was also disappointed that there weren't slippers provided. When I asked Hind, she said slippers were only available at the Mandara Spa. This is not acceptable because if anyone uses either the steam room or the jacuzzi, there is a serious risk of slipping due to the wet floors. I had to go about the sauna and steam room barefoot because I didn't want to get my leather shoes wet. In my massage room, I would have loved to have oriental tunes played throughout the massage, just to keep 'in line' with the 'far-eastern' theme of things. Instead, western instrumentals seemed to dominate, which for me takes away from the experience a little bit. For Thai massage, I always want to be in 'Zen' mode! The music was also a bit on the loud side. Lastly, at the Mandara Spa reception, they served me a semi lukewarm lemongrass tea, which should have been hot. PROS: Upon arrival, a very pleasant DONIA warmly welcomed me. She provided a consultation form and seemed very concerned about the information I provided on it; which was that I had recently had foot surgery. She suggested an alternative option to Thai massage, which I respectfully declined because I dislike oil massages. Donia even provided an additional form that had a human diagram, to which I had to pinpoint/circle the exact surgery area. We agreed that the therapist would avoid that particular foot. This is one of the hallmarks of a 5 star establishment; extremely impressive! 👏 Mandara Spa is drop dead gorgeous! 😍 It's honest to God one of the most beautiful spas I've ever visited in my life. There were lots of oriental accents and memorabilia throughout. The relaxation area is to die for, with a 'killer view' of the outdoor pool area, which seemed to lead to the indoor 'infinity-like' pool. The indoor pool area, (the spa's unisex pool) is by far the most incredibly beautiful place I've ever seen within a spa. It was like a magical, ancient Greek bath house built for royalty; so regal, so enchanting! A truly wondrous sight to behold! It seems that the hotel connects to, or has easy access to the Mirage City Mall. Maybe that explains why it's so huge! Every corner of the spa was so elegant and sparkling clean. My cute little massage room had it's own private shower and toilet cubicle. Seeing a mattress on the floor and those baggy Thai pyjamas is always a promising sign that you are in for a truly authentic 'Thai treat'! There was also an adorable gong by the entrance, to which my therapist told me to bang it to signal I was ready. Her name is AOR and she is very sweet and professional. So relieved that she was from Thailand. Call me stereotypical, but I love my Thai masseuses to come from Thailand; just like how I like my Shiatsu therapists to come from Japan, my Swedish therapists to come from Sweden, my Balinese Massages to come from Indonesia, etc. Anyways, Aor did a sensational job, (carefully and strategically avoiding my 'problematic' foot), while also massaging it. I'm so pleased she stepped on my back, which is one of my favorite parts of a traditional Thai massage. I did expect a little more of those skillful maneuvers that this type of massage is so well known for, but I won't hold that against her since every therapists techniques are unique and different. Overall, I had a great time at Mandara Spa. Just basking in the ambiance of such a breathtaking complex, is a truly memorable experience because I'm someone that loves beautiful things and places. A special thanks to DONIA and AOR for their amazing service and professionalism. I really appreciate all the care and concern about my foot. HIND should be counselled to stay at the reception desk, stock the lockers with slippers, a robe, a towel and even disposable pants for customers. Had no idea they also offered 120 minute Thai massages until I saw their menu at the reception. I will most definitely book this at a future date, God's willing! Fantastic spa, fantastic experience which I really enjoyed. Can't wait to be back. I highly, highly, highly recommend Mandara Spa!!!
