When you see a spa that’s nearly as big as most boutique hotels, you can’t help but happily conclude that spa culture has finally come of age in India. With 90,000 sq ft area at its disposal, the Indian flagship of the Thai spa chain, Six Senses, has space and serenity as its trump cards.

The fact that the spa complex is situated in the rather faraway locales of Jaypee Greens Golf resort in Greater Noida seems more a blessing than a downside, considering one is forced to take out enough time away from the noise and crowd. The spa menu at Six Senses is elaborate, the prices steep. The signature massage sets you back by R4320 for a 50-min session but that’s unlikely to deter the well-travelled spa junkies who are getting a better, if not the same experience than they are used to getting at the over 30 spas Six Senses runs across the world.
Amid an endless list of therapies and treatments on the menu that also include Ayurveda healing, beauty treatments and yoga and fitness sessions, what may catch your fancy is the traditional Moroccon Hammam, perhaps the first of its kind in the NCR. The therapy that costs R4500 (50-min) involves lying on a heated marble bed after a herbal steam bath and getting exfoliation done using the ‘Hammam mitt’ which leaves the skin rejuvenated. All in all, if you can afford the moolah to let your senses rule and give you a memorable experience, we suggest you head to Six Senses. It’s worth it.
