Sunset Spa

Massage tables at Sunset Spa

Tucked away in Kigali’s Kibagabaga neighborhood lies a small piece of heaven—Sunset Spa. Offering some of the city’s best massages, facials, and spa packages at incredibly reasonable prices—in addition to (almost) painless waxing—much of Kigali’s spa-going community calls Sunset Spa home. The spa also houses a manicure and pedicure salon as well.

Soothing Corner Spa

Scented candles, dim lights, and calming music make Soothing Corner’s spa packages all the better. Located on a quiet road in Kigali’s Kacyiru neighborhood, this spa offers all the necessities—manicures, pedicures, massages, and facials. With reasonable prices, walk-in availability, and a winning location, Soothing Corner shouldn’t be missed.

Amani Spa

Amani Spa, a chain of spas located around the continent, has recently made it to Kigali. Housed in sparkling Raddison Blu and Convention Centre complex in Kimihurura, Amani takes spa going in Rwanda to the next level. In addition to the usual massage and facial offerings, exclusive Rwandan packages that include the use of volcanic stones and organic coffee bean extract are also available.

Zenora Wellness Center

Just mere minutes from Kigali’s best restaurants in Kimihurura, Zenora Wellness Center’s well-stocked spa list has attracted customers for several years. A variety of unique massages—including Swedish, aromatherapy, and Berber—are well reviewed, as is their deluxe manicure and pedicure.
