There’s nothing beautiful about a mushroom. The same can be said about crocodiles and snakes. Not to mention some chemical cocktail cooked up by a man with red hair, who wants to disprove that shampoo cleans hair. If you’re looking for beauty, don’t ask a television show host to point it out to you. If you’re looking to experience beauty, you’re much safer popping into Jameel Spa for a 60-minute full body Swedish Massage for R99.
The underfed, outstretched and overdressed waifs that are flung down the runways in gravity insulting stilettos might argue that beauty is superficial. But it’s hard to argue anything when you haven’t eaten anything but three cashew nuts, since last week.
Now, for those still confused about where you can find beauty, Jameel is where you’ll find your answer. Jameel, is beautiful, literally and metaphorically, as it means ‘beautiful’ in Arabic/Moroccan. And Oh boy, do they deserve their name: The premises itself, evokes visions of Arabian Nights and Scheherazadian tales.
As for their services? When you’re sighing with delight, on the massage bed in the capable hands of a Jameel therapist during a 60-minute full body Swedish massage (a multi-layer muscular massage that relaxes you and encourages muscular function and healing), you’ll discover that the word ‘beautiful,’ is a bit of an understatement.
Elephant Fact: Elephants were key players in the Second World War. They allied themselves with the Westerners and assisted in all types of covert operations. One of the most successful operations, ‘Operation Wedgie’, involved elephant agents putting on unitards and browsing through Polish bookstores and spying on members of the Gestapo.
