It is a fact universally acknowledged that water is the source of all life. It has the ability to cleanse physically and spiritually. The Quan Spa rightfully draws on these restorative qualities to provide a haven of calm, tranquillity and relaxation. I recently happened to spend some time at this spa haven to get my TLC fix.
A dry river body runs from the reception area to the treatment rooms. Bathed in warm colours of orange, the corridors are dimly lit with candles burning outside each room. Attention to detail is the cornerstone of the design element. Each of the seven rooms can be identified by the gold lined inscription of the chakras on its translucent acrylic door. The treatment rooms sport soft off-whites on the walls, bamboo flooring, warm natural woods within the changing facilities and natural stone and pebbles in oversized showers. The ceiling coffers of the rooms are studded with abstract paintings, the colours of which are congruent with the colours of the chakra. The décor can be best defined by the setup used during the spa treatment. There are 5 Unisex Holistic Therapy Rooms, 1 Ayurveda therapy room, 1 couple’s suite, 2 facial therapy rooms, 2 manicure and pedicure stations.
After walking into the spa, while I was already smitten by the interiors, Gunjan Chawla, the Spa Director further ensured my experience was accentuated a notch above. While I was only booked in for a Quan Signature Massage, she even added an Aroma Facial after understanding that my skin required it. The best part of the consultation was that personalization was at the heart of it.
After filling my consultation form and 10 minutes of steam, I headed to my treatment room which was one of the most luxurious and inviting treatment rooms I’ve experienced in a while. Wafting with roses and delightful aromas, I felt like a queen literally! Due credit has to be attributed to my nimble-fingered therapist who ensured that my treatment got as dreamy as it could.
The full body massage was administered with a moisturizing ointment which had an extremely fluid texture. It contained warm spices oil which is made of clary sage oil and lavender oil which regenerates, nourishes and protects the skin, making it smooth. With an exotic perfume, it literally melted on my skin. Add to this the perfectly balanced massage strokes and for the next 90 minutes, I was in spa heaven…
As if this wasn’t enough pampering, my sojourn continued with an Aroma Facial. I loved how the holistic facial leverages the finest ingredients via a specialized massage. After a luxurious facial, I usually suffer breakouts but this facial quickly hydrated and revived my skin complexion and texture. I was glowing inside out!
I don’t say this often but my time at the spa helped me walk out as a different person. I felt lifted up emotionally, mentally and physically. Safe to say that suffused with eye-pleasing and calm hues of white and turquoise, Quan spa not only mesmerizes you visually but also through its holistic healing.
