We all love a little bit of pampering every once in a while, and what better place to unwind than at the spa? Here’s adding just a splash of excitement to these sessions. We may not have bird poop face packs or placenta cream scrubs, but here are some of the bizarre spa treatments the capital has to offer.

Gold Caviar Riche Therapy

Caviar on your face may sound like a slimy affair, but Kaya’s figured out a way to ensure that only the nutrients reach your skin. The affair starts with cleansing and exfoliation of the face, followed by a massage with creams infused with caviar extracts as well as 23 carat gold. It ends with a gold face mask for that final glow.

Milk and Honey Bath

This is your chance at making your Cleopatra-esque dreams come true. Sign up for a massage at Sawadhee, and you can get a milk and honey bath as an add-on. Targeted towards those with dry skin, it nourishes the skin, giving it a healthier texture. And you don’t get just any regular bathtub… this takes place in the jacuzzi. Now that’s one step ahead of even the queen of Ancient Egypt.

Price: INR 1800 plus taxes

Princess Pedicure

Warm bubbling water, rose petals, wine, melted chocolate, melted wax and eno! This isn’t a recipe for an exotic gourmet dish but for a pedicure. Sound intriguing enough? The ambience at this little neighbourhood parlour may not have you raving but the services are sure to win you over.

Pumpkin Peel Facial

Bet Cinderella didn’t think of this one when she was on her way to the grand ball. The 5-in-1 skin treatment at VLCC is enriched with vitamins {C, P and F} and is great for the acne-prone, as well as those with ageing skin. The peels hydrate the skin and nourish it, leaving it fresh and soft for weeks.
