Nothing can be as exhilarating as pampering oneself at a good spa. I call it sheer indulgence! Invited to review the Lavanya Spa at Hotel Leela Kempinski in Gurgaon, the moment I entered , I knew I was in for a worthwhile rejuvenating experience.
The aroma, the ambience and the light background music were highlights of the spacious spa. Choosing from a wide selection of treatments offered in the spa menu threw up quite a challenge, as the treatments included both Western and Indian traditional treatments for rejuvenation, detoxification, de-stress, beauty, jet lag, body aches, Cleopatra bath, body, and polishes, facials and massages.
After an endless consultation session, I opted for Swedish massage that lasted for 90 minutes.
The session started with a foot massage by first soaking the feet in a tub with mineralised seasalt. After a relaxing full body massage, I soaked myself in the hydrotherapy tub with seaweed. I would stronglyrecommend it to everyone, as apart from helping in detoxification, it massages 20 body zones from water rushing out from 280 jets.
After a relaxing session that ended with a shower, I was taken to the ultra-modern Alpha Lounge to relax in, which was really cool. My spa session ended with some nice jasmine tea.
Where: The Leela Kempinski, Ambience Island, National Highway-8, Gurgaon
