In my last post, I wrote about the 5 best massages in Jozi, and included Rain on this list. I wanted to do a complete blog post about Rain, because I think their concept is really unique and I love their space. They’re situated in the Rosebank lofts, so very easy to miss. You go up the escalators near Sunglass Hut/ Forever New, cross the sky bridge, and then turn left and walk down the corridor. Once there, you forget you’re even an “office block” space. They’ve done a great job in prettifying their area- and it has a lovely vibe.
2 things I really like about Rain. 1- it’s a woman’s only spa. 2- they have packages, allowing you to make pampering a regular part of your life. Their annual membership is R350 a month, with their monthly membership being priced at R375 a month. These include 1 x 60 minute massage (usually priced at R475), plus 12.5% off all other services, which include nail services and facials. Monthly memberships can be purchased on a once off basis- great as a gift.
The massage is completely customizable, in terms of length, pressure, areas of focus and type of massage. I went for a 60 minute hot stone massage, and loved that I was able to choose which music I wanted. I also liked the foot rub and soak before the massage.
For nails, you’re pointed to a manicure buffet, where you can select the scrub and cream you want, whether your goal is to moisturize, exfoliate or just relax. The product range used is Matsimela.
Rain is open until 6pm from Tuesday – Thursday and on Friday and Saturday they take appointments until 8pm.
They also host pamper parties, and I’m considering one for my next Jozilicious Mixer – watch this space!
