An indulging evening at Hyatt Regency, Amritsar

Being in golden city of Amritsar is always bliss. As a routine i come back here every year and right amidst the pleasant weather when, winters is just calming down leaving behind days that are pleasant and nights more chilly. I can’t even count the times i have been here yet i find something new to do and indulge in every time. This time i was welcomed by the team of Hyatt Regency, Amritsar, who hosted me for a lovely day.

While i waited at their all day cafe ‘Tarteria’ a Patisserie that promotes the notion of tarts to the taste of locals and travellers alike. What i really liked about the place is its soul- Chef Shiv who holds the reigns in kitchen and makes sure everything they offer is homemade, only natural colors are used and dishes that will impress your taste buds as well as your soul, after all you are in land of Amritsar. I tried an array of fresh tarts and sipped some coffee, a relief from the windy afternoon outdoors. He promised me an authentic local meal for lunch, I had no qualms about it and parted ways while I checked out the property and went for a spa session that was preplanned for me.

I then stepped into ‘Shanti Spa’ a spacious space that has an inviting ambiance. From the moment you walk in, you feel a sense of luxury and relaxation, leaving the outside world behind. The scents that fill the spa are calming and the spa is every bit stunning as the property itself. I love to leave all the pampering sessions to the last day of my vacation, so I can have a rejuvenating experience before my trip came to an end. The well-lit spa was spacious with masseuse who attended me began with a ritualistic feet wash, and treated me with an hour of soothing body massage. The massage began with kneading and long strokes, the pressure on each trigger point was so fabulous, I let go my senses in no time. You know you are in hands of well-trained masseuse when you immediately slip in Zen mode and next 60 minutes were pure bliss.

Pro Tip- while most of the spa’s make you fill forms and know your requirements. Make sure you let them know about your concerned areas and don’t ever feel conscious to tel them if the pressure is too much.

Punjab Province – Post spa i made my way to the in-house restaurant where Chef Shiv prepared a scrumptious North Indian meal for me. Tempting scents of food and an air of extravagance calls you out in this airy restaurant, I stepped out and took a sit in their alfresco seating, appreciating the slight winter chill.

We started off with a platter of appetizers that had tandoored ‘Chicken Tikka’ ‘Lamb Chapli with Anda’ ‘Fish Amritsari’ and ‘Kala kukkad’ the robust flavours made me realize how no part of India can beat the flavours of Punjab, maybe i was being biased but the food was just a gastronomical treat. My favourite and highly recommended dish is Kala Kukkad, with subtle yet lip-smacking flavours.

For main course chef presented yet another platter in an intricate ceramic plate, with a leaf that had several dishes like ‘Butter Chicken’ i mean you can’t leave Punjab without this. I was so glad it was still end of winters so i got to taste seasonal specialty like ‘Sarso Ka Saag’ paired with ‘Makke Ki Roti’ and side of gud (jaggery) and makkhan (butter) ‘Matka Gosh’  with tender mutton cooked really fine, i am not a big fan of chole so skipped that. The accompaniments like ‘Masala chaach’ ‘Kuchumber Salad’ made the meal elaborate and authentic. For desserts chef had a sweet gesture and presented me with a dessert that was full of different desserts. I mean literally desserts in dessert, it had kulfi faluda, ice cream with unique flavours like pan, gulkand etc all served in a glass. Well i can say it was not just food and presentation but the also the hospitality that made my visit a memorable one.

On my tour to property I noticed a vibrant section dedicated to kids, they had staff dedicated to look after kids while you enjoy a spa session of a leisure drink at the bar. They have 2 rooms divided for different age groups and open throughout the day. Form soft toys to video games, board games to movies; they were all stacked dup so your kids can easily spend a few hours without getting bored. I felt it was a wonderful thought and more and more hotels should do this as it gives the parents a much desired break and make the most of their vacation.

carousel_1

The ambiance is very cozy, red and cream details in interiors give you a very majestic vibe. Welcoming with lime water, the staff is humble and hospitable. Once done choosing the treatment we were lead to begin. The first was a typical foot wash, where they dip your feet in water filled with rose petals and rinse them well.

IMG_2300

We were then escorted to our massage room, where the masseuse began the treatments. We choose to go with ‘Manipura Abhyanga’ for body; the name translates to beautiful and shining in Sanskrit. The treatment that lasted 60 minutes helps to balance and energize the Manipura chakra, it’s kind of healing therapy that triggers the body’s health by reliving of any stress and knots. The aromatic scents will fill your senses and leads you into de-stress zone. Next step was Body scrub, we choose to go for it as a spate treatment but they do offer some really good package deals.  ‘Shukla’ the heavenly body scrub massage lasted for 30 minutes and was simply phenomenal, the blend of Amalki, Yashti-madhu, Vrikshamla, Manjishtha and Shwet Chandan not just lightens the skin tone and nourishes it with Vitamin C but also makes one skin alluringly beautiful, I could feel my skin a lot softer, almost immediately.  I was sent off for a good 10 minutes steam, to let my skin absorb all the goodness of essential oils and benefit maximum out of my treatment. I love when they have Steam attached to your room, instead of going to some other space, after all its all about extra comfort.  the last treatment was the Whitening facial called ‘Shukla’ which is a blend of Amalki, Yashtimadhu, Vrilshamla, Manjistha and Shwet Chandan, an exclusively unique therapy for 60 minutes  that lightens the complexion and gives a soft even tone skin.

Our treatment ended with some much needed nuts and ginger lemon tea, boosting our immune system and ready to spend rest of the day in relax mode. so if you need a break Spa yoga is place to head. Hyderabad blogger, Indian travel blogger

L’Occitane Spa at The Khyber Resort, Gulmarg

The Khyber Spa is an extension of the L’Occitane brand. Nestled amidst the Himalayas, ensconced amidst unspoilt acres of meadows and pristine nature, is the spa with unbeatable views that offers a luxurious and holistic experiences.

The spa too, like most of the hotel is centrally heated, the property is so huge I took my time exploring, catching glimpse of bits and pieces of winter ice that remained under the shade of property, where direct sunlight dint reach. I was cold by the time I reached the Spa, and was so glad it was centrally heated.

IMG-20180427-WA0021
L’Occitane Spa at The Khyber Resort, & Spa, Gulmarg

As the spa manger got me the consent form that included information of my choice of pressure and concern areas, I was soaking in the view of the magnificent pool, one of the finest in the country I am sure. Another member of the staff got me a hot towel and welcome tea, and offered me in-house slippers before leading me to the spa room.

IMG-20180427-WA0013
L’Occitane Spa at The Khyber Resort, & Spa, Gulmarg

Soothing, energizing aromas engulfed me and so did the view from my room. I opted for the ‘Revitalizing Aromachologie Massage’ that is a perfect combo of Swedish strokes, Balinese massage techniques and Chinese acupressure. The soothing music, dim lights and the gorgeous view make for a relieving combination

IMG_5160
L’Occitane Spa at The Khyber Resort, & Spa, Gulmarg

My masseuse used the Lavender oil which is known to have benefits that reduces mental stress and anxiety, treats insomnia, improves blood circulation and also help relieve muscle and joint pains. L’Occitane Spa uses all in-house products and ensure calming the overactive mind and body. Just as Provence is a unique resting place, The Khyber Spa by L’Occitane is a sanctuary of tranquillity, rejuvenating your body and soul.

An hour and half of rejuvenation, followed by steam and long soak in the tub overlooking the pine trees, it was the most relaxing evening of my stay in Kashmir. Post spa I stepped down for an extended dose of relaxation by the pool, the long glass walls indicated end of another evening in land of hills.

Heavenly Spa at The Westin Hyderabad

Spa for most of us means a place where you get a massage. Which is actually not the case and at Westin Hyderabad, Heavenly Spa shows us why. The concept at Westin’s Heavenly Spa is to create a complete wellness experience.
IMG_4522

I was invited over the weekend to indulge and review their signature heavenly massage. My therapist for the day led me to their massage room, and once I was ready she began with soaking my feet in warm water using mineral salt to cleanse them and began with my treatment. She used apple pie oil that gave extreme moisture to my winter dry skin. I drifted into Zen mode as she began with my concentrated (focus) area with required pressure to relive stress and have a more enhanced blood circulation in my body. 

20180320_152429

The pressure was just perfect and exactly what I needed after a long week of work, I enjoyed every bit of it.  As the warm oil seeped into my body I could feel my aches slowly fade away and enter a state of absolute bliss. This goes over an hour and my masseuse slowly kneads on my muscles combining that with gentle strokes. The last 10-15 minutes she spent massaging my face and head. More like pressing the correct pressure points and releasing stress and it was followed by a facial.

Facial

I opted for the ‘Illumination’ facial. It is curated to bring back glow to your face. The active ingredients and cooling gel mask brighten up the skin by treating the hyper pigmented areas. This again was an hour long treatment that was done using the ‘Comfort Zone’ products winding up with a pack followed by a serum to keep you skin glowing and hydrated.

IMG_4523

At Heavenly Spa you can always add-on, facilities like body scrubs, steam and Jacuzzi right in your room (on additional basis).  The post therapy part included, being escorted to a quite dim lit, waiting area where I relaxed, breathing in an amazing experience I just had while sipping a hot  cup of green tea with some dark chocolates and walnuts for a quick a boost.

Mend it with Kerastase at Page 3 Salon

Page 3 Salon Jubliee Hills

I have been quite experimental when it comes to my hair lately. I may not snip it off dramatically but I do love colouring my hair and trying out different styles occasionally.

Well it obviously comes with an extra stress of extra care. Hair colour doesn’t damage your hair, but yes it does need some extra care. And like any other millennial If you tend to use hot tools like curlers and straighteners to style your hair and then of course the hair spray, the shine spray follow. Not only does this damage your hair but it creates product build up which causes damage from the roots.

The Kerastase products used as part of my hair ritual at Page 3 Salon

That is exactly why I tend to give my hair an expert care at least once a month or 45 days. The ‘New Page 3 Salon’ has well trained hair experts, who advice the right treatment after going through a quick assessment of your hair (or skin if you are going for skin related therapy) and my hair with so much back to back travelling (and poor diet lately) has resulted in damage and needed a good hair spa.

Shining in my kerastase treated hair at Page 3 Salon

I have been to Page 3 salon for various services earlier (their facial is really good and so is there manicure pedicure), so when they told me, I need  a Kerastase Ritual, I just went with it, leaving it on the experts and relaxing as they treated my hair with utmost care.

A lot of brands claim a lot of things but I personally like to experience it myself and form my experience with Kerastase, I have only been smiling with satisfaction! My hair has been falling good even after 3 washes (of course you need to keep using a shampoo and conditioner after every wash)

Some beachy waves for final touch of galmour

Book yourself an appointment and visit the New Page 3 salon above Hagen dazs, Jubliee hills and gift your hair a much needed Kerastase Treatment, you can thank me later.

Retreat in Wilderness of Bandipur

5
The Windflower Resort & Spa, Bandipur

Bandipur National Park is regarded as one of the most beautiful and better-managed national parks of India. The moment we entered the grounds of Bandipur the tranquility of nature engulfed us. We were greeted with hundreds of deer’s freely roaming around, as if welcoming to their sanctuary.

The experience of wildlife safari is something everyone must go through once in your lifetime. They have open jeeps and busses with set timings, but no private vehicles are allowed for safaris. We obviously chose the Jeep, as we were four and it gave us our own private vehicle. You are not allowed to step out of the vehicle though. Going to the wild is always exciting and soothing – the excitement of watching the wild animals and the tranquility of being in the lap of mother-nature.

Post the initial trail into forest we, knew we finally pierced into the ‘real’ forest when we started noticing countless deer’s, langoor’s hopping, peacocks wandering and wild boars boaring around.  This place is located amidst the picturesque surroundings of the towering Western Ghats Mountains. You will be lucky to spot a leopard but keep your hopes up, sadly we dint.

A true retreat, disconnected from the world where only source of indulging myself was a good a spa, books, infinity pool, bonfire and lots of games. Being in the digital age you just don’t know the peace that comes with disconnecting the world until unless its forced upon, in this case it was a gift.  

Stay: The Windflower Jungle Resort & Spa

Windflower resort in Bandipur is one of the best and right amidst jungle landscape. You will see herd of deer’s coming in and out of the, the resort as the name suggest encourages wild life and is safe, you will see monkeys and some wild pigs once in a while too. The guests are recommended to stay indoors post 7:30 and mornings are begun with nature walk, where an expert takes you on a natures trail, introducing you to most amazing facts of nature.

The resort is more like a retreat where Television is available only in a common room, the internet and mobile phone connectivity is nil, except for wi-fi in the lobby. It truly helps you reconnect with yourself and your loved ones. We assure there will not be a dull moment, with an infinity pool overlooking endless forest, games room with numerous games like snooker, carom and even play area for kids outside, wildlife documentary aired in T.V room, bonfire in evenings and Spa to pamper yourself.

Food

There are no options available beyond your resort in Bandipur. Windflower resort usually offer buffet meals, but if there are limited guests, the chef will personally attend to you and extended his hospitality by serving you what suits your taste buds the best, luckily for us, the chef indulged us with a mix of local cuisine and some really good food and desserts, all of which is made in house.

The food is outstanding, tastes very home-cooked.  The Courteous & friendly staff ensured our stay is pleasant and kept surprising us with their deep knowledge of the nature around them with impressive knowledge about the animals and birds.

I was looking for some quality time with my family and this resort was the perfect solution for us. The facilities are basic but the location, well equipped rooms, in term of design and privacy is just appealing. It was an amazing hassle free stay, and the Safari too was organised by the staff (on request) and we just dint have to worry about waiting in lines or anything, with a pick and drop from our resort to the tourist office where the safari starts from, was all taken care by the staff at Windflower Resort.

Loved: What i loved the most about the resort was the private seating area, the infinity pool and the fact that we dint have any network and it helped us enjoy the holiday to the core and courteous staff.

Know: Little known is the fact that these Bandipur forests once belonged to the Mysore Maharaja’s personal Game Preserve. Steps were taken to preserve this priceless reserve since the beginning of this era when all other reserve’s and natural habitats abundant with wildlife were on the verge of extinction.

The Spa & Wellness Centre at JW Marriott Resort and Spa encourages guests to indulge in pampering, and promotes disconnection from daily routine to maintain a healthy balance.

20180126_173148

The décor of the spa is inspired by the relaxed and luxury vibe of the resort itself. The spa therapists helped me choose a relaxing treatment, also sharing the in-depth knowledge and profound experience she has about the services offered and products used for the same.

IMG_4228

The place was blissful, with calming music and aroma that soothes you the moment you step in. After a welcome tea, more of an immunity booster my masseuse escorted me to my treatment room. I was fascinated to see how certain areas of the spa were heated to keep guest warm and cosy during this winter. The treatment room was well equipped with a private rainforest shower cum steam room, treatment area, a tub and changing area that comes with a wardrobe and safe.

IMG_4229

A vacation for me isn’t complete until I have a relaxing spa to indulge myself at the end of it. And JW Marriott Resort and Spa gave me just that. Expert therapists combined with the international range of wellness products, they allow spa guests to experience a higher realm of overall well-being.

Lebua Resort is a luxury all in one destination, and nothing says luxury to me on a holiday than a good spa. Walking up and down the forts all day, visiting all beautiful places does take a lot of steps. So I was grateful when the staff informed us about our pampered evening at their in house spa followed by a dip in pool and snacking.

IMG_3002

The 20,000 sq. ft. Elle Spa is a quiet and meditative place with 10 treatment rooms, 2 rooms designed for couples, one relaxation room, yoga studio, steam room, Jacuzzi and gym. There are several options to get pampered with Indian and Mediterranean treatments and massages to restore the balance of forces within your body.

I opted for their ‘Energising Massage’. Before my spa, I took a good 15 mins steam, followed by a lime and ginger blended oil massage that transports you to sublime oasis and gently awaken your senses. My skin sure emerged revived, refreshed & firmer from the treatment ready to take on to another few days of all touristy things lined up.

PicsArt_05-19-03.18.26[1]

Spa Day At Kaya Kalp, ITC Kakatiya

DSC_5184

Hey,
So I decided to take a day off from work and spend it by pampering myself, what better way than going for a 120 minutes of heavenly spa? Just the thought of it made me feel so good and when I was done with it, I was fresh, relaxed and all set for another few weeks of work (gonna come back soon for more). so I am sharing my review with all of you hoping by the end of it you have booked a day of pamper for yourself too.
Kaya Kalp is a perfect combination of visual and sensory delight. ITC Kakatiya, Hyderabad has known to cater their guests with luxury & comfort and my experience was no less of it.
After being welcomed at the hotel I was warmly escorted to the magnificently done Spa area. The Spa Manager, a very experienced lady gave me a brief about their specialty services and helped me pick their most sought after- “Pomegranate Body Scrub and Massage.” It included a body scrub, Aroma oil massage and a perfect end with royal foot massage.
After a quick change in their secure locker room I was directed towards my treatment room, on the way I couldn’t stop admiring how beautiful the place is, with an all white interiors, fresh flowers, and some really exquisite mirrors.  Not to forget the ‘draped’ area which allowed guests to relax post spa and where some of their outdoor treatments are done.
After settling down on my massage bed in the serene ambiance of the perfectly lit room, my experience began to unfold. My masseuse began with pomegranate scrub, a sticky, sweet-smelling concoction of brown sugar, lime, ginger and pomegranate, heartily applied and left for few minutes followed by a hot shower allowing my skin to observe the goodness of it. Wiped clean and ready for the next step which was an aroma soul massage using essential oil, which deeply helped me relive stress and muscular tension (Oh, God! I need to this very often). Lastly, (yes there was more) a lavish foot massage using oil and ancient techniques that include stimulating pressure points that will leave one in a state of bliss (Well, at least I did!)

Monsoon Spa at The Spa by Park Hyatt, Hyderabad

Park Hyatt Hyderabad introduced a Special Monsoon Treatment at The Spa – “‘Herbal Bundle Massage’ that is especially put together for monsoons to re-energize oneself. The Spa  at Park Hyatt is a sanctuary to renew and to delight, where royal fragrances blend with decadent pearl rituals and the sophisticated herbal healing of Nizam tradition.

I was very eager to try it out but waited good 10 days after it was launched,  as i was down with viral fever (and it’s not suggested to opt for body massages when you are down with fever) But let’s just say the timing really worked, i had a lot of body pain even after i was back to work, so i finally blocked a date for this treatment as it intends to relax body and soul.

IMG_2567

The Herbal Bundle Massage as informed by the spa manager is a true healing therapy for body stiffness and joint pain. He led me to the spa lounge , where I was welcomed with a Tamarind and jaggery drink in silver champagne glass along with a rolled wet towel.  It’s interiors are all cream-on-beige-deliciousness, dull lights that help you slip into zen mode. The calm color palette continues into the treatment room, all temptingly touchable in natural textures like marble, limestone and leather.

Once changed and ready my therapist began with foot wash with aromatic salt, as in any Ayurvedic treatment.  Post that she began the body massage with liberal application of medicated oils. I had to therapists assigned to me for, there was a missing sync in their moves but sooner or later my entire body was pampered with stretches and right strokes that relived all tension and knots in my body. Post The oil massage they began the therapy of bundle massage that is done with the use of pouches made out of muslin cloth which are filled with medicinal herbs and powders and it’s then poached over the whole body followed by a 30 minutes massage. This special therapy quickens the circulation and aids the muscles in disposing of accumulated waste products. I have had the bundle massage treatments earlier and I felt in this treatment the therapists lacked the usage of it, as it was thumped too fast and retracted any sense of relaxation.

IMG_2568IMG_2575IMG_2578

So if you are looking for a treatment with results I would definitely suggest this as it has healing benefits that helps to stretch the tissue membrane, reduces traffic congestion around the compression of the joints, relieve spasticity of muscle, reduces the swelling caused by inflammation of muscles and joints and helps stimulate or increase blood circulation.

If you are looking to relax, I recommend you to go with their option that will be best suggested by the spa manager depending on your need. All in it was a great Sunday; my therapists recommended not have any shower or steam, and let the herbs and oils do their magic. So I used the hot towel to get rid of excess oil, changed and was back to the relaxing lounge for a cup of herbal tea and some apricots.

Following a nice Tan Manicure- Pedicure, that cleansed, scrubbed, filed my nails I chose from a wide array of fashion- forward hues and decided to go for Nudes, perfect for summer. It was a nice break for me since I always choose to go for darker shades (always) while I sipped my green tea (in pretty floral cups that I fully intended to shop soon) I noticed  little girls accompanying their moms to get glittery nails (yes they do nails for kids as well). It was a beautiful sight. This place has the kind of vibe were you would want to come with you friend/mom/sister and have those endless juicy conversation (after you are done marveling about the place) It’s a perfect place to even through a bridal shower/baby shower in Hyderabad.

This women’s Day Truefitt & Hill, Hyderabad opened its all men’s zone for women to pamper and give them a taste of their royal treatments.

The space is done up in dark wood and features interesting decor elements like a vintage gramophone, all this is bathed in flattering yellow light. The reception area has all their products on display. The service area features 5-6 massive salon chairs, each with its own basin and range of products.

IMG_8805

They offered services like Head and Foot Massage, Royal Manicure and Pedicure and Peel of Mask. I had recently got a mani-pedi so i went for the Peel of Mask. The staff is very welcoming and escorted me to a private room, which I guess is designed for mani-pedi and facials. The reclining chair was wide and snug. Once i was done with my tea and settled, I was suitably prepped for the treatment.


First she cleansed my face of all makeup followed by a scrub enriched with ingredients like Willow bark, Borage oil and Walnut shell to provide maximum cleaning, toning and stimulate skin cell renewal. Post that a fragranced warm moist towel was placed on face, casing it completely except my nostrils (to breathe of course) which felt heavenly on my face, and I luxuriated in its warmth for about 10 minutes. Calm and relaxed, the final step was the application of peel off Mask. My beautician for the day then poured a thick pink liquid on my face, again covering it completely till my upper neck and left it to dry. I felt like hollow man for next few minutes- well only in pink, I was almost restless, because let’s just say everything from my eye lids, lips were sealed, I did try opening them, but failed (I mean of course I dint try with an extreme force to ruin it) then other half of remaining time, my mind boggled with thoughts until I felt warm hand around my neck that tried to loosen up the mask from edges and then gently peeled it off, I felt so relaxed good, she cleansed the rest with cold towel and there I was left with a cleansed soft skin.

My skin felt moisturized and replenished, and my usually sensitive skin had no irritation at all. Hyderabad blogger, Hyderabad lifestyle blogger, lifestyle blogger

Bounce Salon & Spa Hyderabad

last year was very experimental for me, i am extremely possessive of my hair and when i decided to color my hair it took mt 2 years to finalize between browns and mahogany. when i finally got brown highlights i was so happy and withing 6 months (when they almost faded) i went for a retouch but ended up with ombre of same color. I loved every bit of it.

My Ombre Look before i went global

But then it started wearing of the and brown started changing to almost copper’ish color (trust me it looked very weird) and i was in need of major make over of my hair and that is when i headed to newly opened Bounce Salon & Spa in Hyderabad and consulted their expert who took over all my worries.

Post my color i also went for a Hair Spa, they suggested me – ‘Elements Hair Spa’ and as the name suggest the products used where from Elements, a quick wash followed by massage (this is the best part,  the kneading strokes eases tension and stimulates blood flow) post massage they gave me a nice steam to soak in all the goodness, post which a wash and blow dry completed the treatment. Idly its not suggested to go for blow dry but since i have sinus issue i get it low dried partially.

This is how my hair looks now, i love the brown that subtly glows in sunlight and my hair feels great even after 2 washes.

Impressed by range of their services and with time on hand i decided to try out their skin care option as well and after a glance at my skin the expert (yes they have on for your skin issues as well) after voicing my concern hey suggested me to go for ‘Hydrating & Nourishing Cleanup by Comfort Zone’and as i relaxed my way to a glowing skin they tailor made a process for me when i mentioned i need an extra glow for the upcoming wedding i had to attend (which they were happy to give). Starting of they did a 3 step clean up treatment, that cleanses, brightens and lightens your skin for a perfect glow (30 Mins) they then followed up with a Illumination Whitening Treatment that helps to reduce the look of uneven skin tone, pigmentation. This treatment is for immediate fix but you can have maximum results with a few settings depending on your skin (as suggested by their skin care expert)

Bounce Salon & Spa has special rooms for skin care regimes and spa services 

They offered me a complementary pedicure service which was no less than an extended foot spa experience. The place is hygienic, spacious, the staff is well aware and trained. i am definitely sticking by them for my future spa appointments.

Spa Ceylon Hyderabad

img_2478

Sri Lanka’s well known luxurious Ayurveda spa has made way to Hyderabad offering luxurious spa rituals and treatments , recreating the romance of old Ceylon and taking you on a total sensory journey par excellence.

As soon as you enter the spa cum store (store because they sell a wide range of products under ‘Spa Ceylon’, they were kind enough to gift me a hamper which I will be reviewing on blog soon- so far loving them) the sounds of Ceylon melodies in the background welcomes you along with soothing aroma of Lemongrass that wafts through the air.

Once i picked my treatment for the day, which was a 90 minutes ‘Kandyan Relaxing Ritual’ I was introduced to my masseuse and escorted to a private treatment room with en-suite shower area. While i changed and prepped for my treatment to begin, I went through the products laid out for treatments.

Spa Ceylon has created – and uses – its own natural, eco-friendly products that are alcohol free, which makes them absolutely safe and delightful to experience at the hands of expert masseuse

Treatment: Kandyan Treatment

The Kandyan Relaxing Ritual is a luxuriously relaxing and rejuvenating spa experience that made me feel pampered to the core. The inclusion of soothing head and forehead movements ensures the total ritual and helps improve circulation, balance energy flows, soothe muscle tightness and take away stress, tension and anxiety. This spa ritual includes a traditional full body massage to soothe and comfort the entire body. They also performed a soothing acupressure body therapy with precious mineral crystals.

Products Used: Because it’s all about products at Spa Ceylon

Sleep Spray Mist (sprayed before the treatment) It’s a body pillow mist to promote deep restful sleep, with properties like lavender that helps take away stress and relax senses while luxuriously fragrant ylang ylang calms and clarifies  mind and body.

Aloe Vera Mint Balm (for body Massage) a natural formula with deep action to cool, soothe and protect. It has wheat germ and natural vitamin that help nourish and moisturize while organic aloe infused with fruit oils hydrate dry skin

Crystal Stone – For acupressure.  

Peace Mist (sprayed on face) lemongrass helps balance senses & promote inner peace while lavender in it helps relax, spiked lavender helps restore tranquility and peppermint helps clarify senses.

Calming Balm- (massaged on forehead, temples behind ears back and neck) it gently pacifies senses and promotes tranquility. Helps unwind and assists in promoting restful sleep

Hair Oil Mist (for head massage) Aloe Vera water grass with refreshing aromatic herbs and essential oils helps soften hair and adds luxurious glow

Hot towel– I choose to go for hot towel clean up instead of a shower to let the moisture absorb, because winters requires as much moisture as possible.

Steam – I wanted to go for steam, but since the steam room was outside the room and no gowns available I skipped it.

Duration: 90 Minutes

Post Spa: The experience winded up with a cup of hot herbal tea, accompanied with pineapples and pieces of jaggery. Definitely coming back to try another treatment from their long list of rejuvenating rituals. Top Hyderabad blogger

My Envy Box- Spa Set

IMG_3716Hey, Amidst a busy week I planned to pamper myself with My Envy Box- which unlike previous multi brand products had a complete “Vana Vidhi Darjeeling Spa Set” last month. Beauty subscription boxes are like the new rage in India. There have been many companies coming up with these services and I have tried a few of them. However My Envy box stands apart for the products there team curate in each box. They have best of luxury products as well as Indian based products. Each box comes as a surprise gift (you will end up restlessly waiting for the next once you open the present one) with sample size( sometimes even full sized products) It is just amazing how for little money you spend you get to try what works for your skin and decide for yourself if it’s worth buying. I have been personally introduced to lot of brands I have never tried before (and now I swear by it for regular use- Za-True White Plus Liquid Foundation and Babor creams) The concept is really nice because they have variety and offer products for skin, hair, makeup, perfume sample, and sometimes discount vouchers for various services or shopping websites. The box comes with an info card, giving you details about the products and brand and also the price of full size product of the same. IMG_3758 Coming to the specifics of this box which is a “Vana Vidhi Darjeeling Spa Set” has products that are all 100% Vegan, Sulphate Free, Paraben Free, Color Free & Cruelty Free. “VANA’s strong brew face and body wash” is thick with essence of green tea which will leave you pampered and fresh (I pre lit the “Darjeeling Forest Incense” which came along with the set, which gives me a proper spa feel, adding solace to your me time) “Vana’s Mild Brew Hair Shampoo and conditioner” are mild and sulphate free with natural lather. A continuous use of their shampoo and conditioner promise to strengthen, condition and grow your hair with major benefits of green tea. Post the luxury bath, their “Green Tea Moisturizing Body Lotion” helps keep skin moisturized. It absorbs quickly and is a non sticky lotion. It is so well organized that all you need to do is use the products and order yourself the full size which is just few clicks away. Book your subscription on http://www.myenvybox.com Do share your reviews and pictures of your Envy box @fashioneatista on instagram. Love Fashioneatista
