Who doesn’t like to get pampered every once in a while? After sitting in front of computer for long hours, running behind kid and then rest of the house hold work takes its toll and my body starts showing signs of fatigue. Taking out time especially to pamper myself takes a back seat however when an award winning Traditional Thai Spa like Sawadhee called me out, I had to make my husband incharge for a day as I rushed to the spa for a rejuvenating experience.
Sawadhee Traditional Thai Spa is situated in the heart of South Delhi, just a 15 minute drive from the Indira Gandhi Airport. It spans over an area of 5,000 square feet. Never in my thoughts I had imagined of such a huge spa that too at such a posh locality. The moment I entered , the scent of lemongrass hit my nostrils, deporting me to another world. Dimly lit ambience surely had a calming effect on my senses. I was greeted by smiling staff and was OFFERED herbal tea. I had a chance to meet Ms Vibha Khanna Rastogi, the dynamic director of Sawadhee Traditional Thai Spa, her smile didn’t fade even for a second as she took me through the property. Sawadhee has bagged the award of Best spa Interiors (Day) at GeoSpa asiaSpa India Awards 2014.
Sawadhee Spa offers a diverse portfolio of services, focusing on using only best quality products while maintaining high levels of hygiene. I was asked to choose the OIL for therapy, I zeroed on relaxing one. For Therapy I decided to go with Vibha’s recommendation – Lotus Signature Massage (90 mins).
Lotus Signature Massage clears Blocked Energy Lines & Blood Circulation
This blissful signature massage combines eastern philosophy with western techniques. It incorporates the Swedish massage technique with application of pressure on certain pressure points to release blocked energy and create a balance in the body. The application of hot herbal compress relieves sprains, stiffness in the joints and stimulates blood circulation.
Lemmy, the therapist started with cleaning my feet with lukewarm water and gently scrubbed it. During the therapy she massaged my body using relaxing oil using moderate strokes. I liked how well trained and magical her fingers were. Once the massaged was done she used hot pouches filled with herbs (Potli). The hot herbal compress relaxed my muscles and eased the pain.
I also decided to get my back scrubbed, since colder weather makes my skin dry & flaky and that is one part of body I can’t exfoliate myself. The therapist used chocolate scrub (Sawadhee’s secret recipe). It had olive OIL that restored moisture back into my skin while chocolate granules scrubbed all the dead skin away.
All the rooms have bathrooms with steam attached, which was very convenient. I was offered green tea after the session and believe me I was so relaxed and almost sleepy while I chatted with the marketing team of Sawadhee.
I am really interested in trying out the facials they offer and would be revisiting them next month. Overall my experience was exceptional. The therapy won me over, it was one of the best sessions I ever had.
