What: A new luxury spa situated near the pool at Nairobi's trendy Tribe Hotel, it offers a variety of body scrubs and massages, Dermalogica skin care treatments, and whirlpool tub treatments for two.
The look: Africa's interpretation of Philippe Starck, with dark walls, locally sourced natural wood floors, and colorful African art.
Who goes: The hotel's mainly European guests, local expats, and wealthy Kenyans.
The treatment: The Kenya Gold includes a full-body coffee scrub that smells good enough to drink, followed by a stimulating massage. Ask for Wendy.
