Recently, I have read more and more about beauty spas and massage parlours being shut down throughout Egypt and the Middle East. Often seen as 'inappropriate,' the perception of most massage parlours is one of quiet tips and off-menu services. This is not always the case however.
Ban Sabai is a wonderful little massage parlour located just across the road from Old Vic. Run by two ladies who moved to Egypt from Thailand, Ban Sabai boasts a wide array of traditional Thai massages, with all ingredients that are used directly imported from Thailand.
I decided to splurge the other day and went for an Aromatherapy Thai massage. It was absolutely divine. Pisan, the massage therapist, was the epitome of professional. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a massage to check out Ban Sabai.
Among massages they offer are:
Thai massage, 60 min. for 200 LE.
Thai salt scrub massage, 75 min. for 250 LE.
Pain relief massage, 50 min. for 200 LE.
Not to mention the traditional aromatherapy massages and foot reflexology! For more information or to book an appointment call: 0127 8392 336.
