Tired Of Hectic Schedules? Time To Relax And Unwind After Work At These Spas
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).
The Thai Spa
Spa anytime and every time you please with them, as they have literally taken over the city with branches everywhere! Shopping at Quest or City Centre? Or Acropolis and Lake Mall? Thai Spa has you sorted with their convenient locations across all major shopping complexes of Kolkata. Retail therapy and then a latter double dose of self love and care? We say it doesn’t get better than this!
Their Thai-style foot massages are vouched for by regulars. Get a Thai body massage (great for stiffness and enhancing blood flow) If you’re looking for a more special experience, try their candle massage (the Orli Massage Candle is the perfect calling for those in love with aromatic oils and scented candles).
Club Prana @ Hyatt
Looking for pure indulgence? Head to Hyatt — the grand interiors with seven private suites, sauna and steam, whirlpool bath, chill pool (and a fitness centre) makes this club the perfect spot to unwind at.
What’s more, this is one of the rare places in the city that has amenities for a couple massage, so get set to take out your bae on a very special spa date. They have some exciting packages such as full-day treatments, Ayurvedic massage therapy using herbal oils for stress reduction and detoxing, hot stone therapy using water-treated stones on pressure points for relaxation. They also have a ‘jet lag massage’ for those knotted up, exhausted backs.
Want to experience a spa-style massage at a steal? Try O2. They have deals running all round the year! With locations across India and also abroad, the O2 Spa is a trusted favourite of many Kolkatans.
Tired of that stubborn body ache that is just not bidding goodbye? Go in for their dry + cream-based Balinese massage and discover the difference. If you’re a frequent traveller or work out a lot, try the deep tissue massage — a high-pressure, cream-based treatment to help your body relax and release all the tension.
They are present in both Novotel and the Park Plaza hotels and at the airport. Get set for your adventure right before boarding that flight!
Sanjeeva Ayurveda Spa
Plan a day of pampering at this spa in Vedic Village, on the peripheries of the city. Sanjeeva is one of the best Ayurvedic spa experiences I have personally had. The setting of the surrounding village resorts adds to the charm and gives you a well-deserved break from the manic pace of city life.
They bill themselves as a medical Ayurvedic spa (with ayurvedic medications, yoga therapy, prescriptions and ayurvedic consultations). Check out their residential medical packages for the same. They have a vast range of specialised Ayurvedic massages that uses herbal oils for de-stressing tissues and activating your body. You can also go for the aromatherapy full body massage or the massage super specials (30-minute tasters of any of the techniques — aromatherapy, abhyangam and Swedish styles).
