What Makes It Awesome?

Nothing like shedding off some load - be it from the shoulder, heart or the face. And one way of leaving the worries behind for a few hours is a relaxing massage and doing something that makes you feel beautiful. I got my moment of awesomeness at Shanaya, the luxurious spa at The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel in Delhi.

While the spa has many options for massages, Thalgo products are their latest introduction. In these come the famous Thalgo facials which are not only rejuvenating but also spirit boosters. Since its inception in 1964, Thalgo has been known for its marine products. The UK-based cosmetic company offers natural products which have not been tested on animals. The treatments are organically prepared to purify, hydrate and firm the skin. The minerals from the sea help the skin retain its natural and healthy look.

I opted for the anti-ageing facial, but for those who are unsure of what to do, there is a spa manager and a therapist to guide you. The facial includes many kinds of serums and a different massage to take off the fine lines and rejuvenate your skin. The treatment started with a few minutes of steam and sauna. And then I lay down to let Lucy’s fingers work their magic on my tired and exhausted face.

After about 90 minutes, I saw a cleaner and visibly relaxed me in the mirror. Ideally, I would have liked to sleep off, but it was late in the evening. The face pack used is different and raises the neck, helps erase fine lines to a large extent. The most visible thing is the colour change, the suntan obviously goes off, but the pigmentation in different areas also comes down. The skin feels firmer and healthier. Of course, even after a week, I kept seeing the skin shed off the older tired version.

The decor is light and I particularly liked their pink and purple robes. The therapists are polite and the place is hygienic. You get your dose of the healthy green teas too.

What's My Pro Tip?

Shanaya does mean the sun's first ray in Hebrew and for me, it did live up to its promise of a fresh beginning. I would certainly like to go back for their signature therapy, Shanaya Harmony. Other massages on offer include Swedish, Balinese, Thai, Deep Tissue, Reflexology, Hot Stone therapy and more. Also, there are couple rooms too.

Anything Else?

The spa remains open between 10am and 8pm and you just need to take an appointment. There are various day packages also on offer, should you like to do more than just a massage.
