First Impressions

edwardian courtyard and eastern inspired decor at palm spas in bangalore

With a charming Edwardian courtyard, a renovated bungalow, and castle-style wooden gates, The Palms Spa makes you feel like you’re arriving in a tropical island home in South Asia. While not intimidatingly large, the understated, Eastern-inspired décor, soft lighting, and forest ambient music set the mood.

Pamper Station

Friendly, soft-spoken staff will guide you through the menu of massages, body polishes and facials, and once you pick your therapy, you’ll be whisked off to one of the spa’s four private rooms. They have an impressive selection of massages including Balinese and Thai {their specials}. Plus, shorter and more specific ones like Deep Tissue Sports Massage. We picked the Balinese one, and the therapist, combined with a flickering candle, rippling water, and fluffy white sheets transported us to a world of calm and relaxation.

The hour-long massage {vigorous yet not aggressive} is a real treat. Delicate strokes {which the masseuse automatically alters based on your reactions} and mild essential oils work together to deal with any stress and strains. It involves deep-tissue massage, acupressure, reflexology, gentle stretching, and aromatherapy, so once you’re done, you should be feeling truly relaxed. We certainly did. In fact, despite being a bit dozy, a quick steam and shower later, we felt rejuvenated as well.

More Than A Massage

If you’re short on time, opt for the neck and back massages or foot reflexology. The polishes {milk, honey and white chocolate, anyone?} combine a quick scrub and a light massage too, so relaxation meets indulgence. Or get away from the chaos of the city, and check-in for an indulgent Palms Spa Experience — a full 160 minutes of a scrub, raspberry and rhubarb facial, followed by a Balinese massage.
