WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
This spa treatment isn’t modest about what it has to offer. It promises ultimate luxury and ultimate luxury is what you get when you step into its hallowed precincts, done up in rich red and mysterious black, a tribute to the beauty of the orient. Statues of Buddha dot the area, the décor, we are told, is chakra-infused and the spiritual element is combined with wellbeing concepts to offer a unique space for R 'n' R for the soul.
There are about 12 treatment rooms, a superb hammam and an array of temperature controlled Hammam pools within its maze-like premises (warning: you might actually feel you are entering the Lost Kingdom!). While the therapies in the menu are a beautiful blend of East and West, if you are a bride-to-be or just looking to completely rejuvenate yourself, nothing beats the Ultimate Luxury package – a 2-hour, supremely relaxing treatment, using Elemis products, aimed at soothing those frayed nerves!
It begins with a detailed exfoliation using frangipani scrub, the fragrance of which wafts in the room. A shower later, you are led to the table again and the massage, with frangipani oil, begins. With powerful strokes and firm movements, the therapist puts you in a dream like state as she massages the shoulders, back, legs with special emphasis on all the knots and muscles troubling you. You can actually feel the stress melt away.
Massage done, it’s time for a facial that uses two types of masks. The amino active mask plumps up the skin and brightens it while the exotic masks nourishes and hydrates it. Apparently, the masks are like "food for the skin,". Even if you have been lax with your diet, the facial will fix it.
In a departure from usual facials, here, the skin is massaged first and then exfoliated to ensure all the dead skin comes out and the face it thoroughly nourished before the pack is applied.
Even as the face pack works its magic, the therapist moves to giving you a fantastic head massage. Idyllic? You can say that again!
Needless to say, the two-hour pamper session leaves you in a state of bliss. The smooth, baby-like skin and a refreshed, calm state of mind is a bonus!
