Sawasdee Namaste Spa

One of the most highly-ranked spa experiences of Kolkata, it’s great for first timers but do not forget to take a prior appointment. They started with only one outlet in Salt Lake but after the overwhelming responses, they now offer services in Landsdowne and Alipore areas as well. Go here for holistic, revitalising packages, traditional massages, luxurious body wraps, facials, reflexology and more.

Their USP though is authentic Swedish massages, and the loyalty packages that make relaxation even more rewarding {ask for their Titanium package that shall give you four one hour oil massages in INR 5,900 + taxes}.

Pocket Pinch: 1 hr body massage {INR 2,500 + GST}; 30-mins body massage {INR 1,500 + GST}. They usually have discounts running {around 20%}.
