JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar recently presented luxe spa rituals at the special Balinese Spa Seasonal Pop-Up which kicked off from 11th May to 20th May, 2018 at Spa By JW. It had Indonesian therapists from The Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali, offer invigorating, rebalancing refreshing spa therapies which we had the opportunity to put to test.
We headed off to the spa after cooling off with a delectable Cold Coffee at JW Café and lounging by the inviting, azure pool. After being greeted with friendly smiles, we were left admiring the naturally inspired interiors accented through artistic presentations, experiential space planning, and the layering of materials. The décor came across as modern, uncluttered and tasteful. The menu for the Balinese Spa Seasonal Pop-Up comprised of indulgent traditional Balinese massage, Balinese Boreh Body, Uyah Body Scrub and a Kananga Hair Crème bath.
The spa houses 7 treatment rooms which includes a couple treatment room as well as an Ayurvedic treatment room. After exploring it, we quickly filled our consultation form and headed for a steam session which melted away our stresses. Already feeling rejuvenated; we couldn’t wait to watch the effect our treatment would have on us.
Our polite therapist gently whisked us to our treatment room and sparked a conversation regarding our problem areas. Post that, a foot ritual where our feet were scrubbed and massaged followed. We loved how the quick scrub in itself left our skin just so baby-soft. The next 75 minutes were pure bliss. With a combination of Swedish and tissue techniques, our therapist firmly kneaded our muscles into mush. At regular intervals, she kept asking us if we were comfortable with the music and room temperature which makes us laud the staff’s hospitality and attentiveness.
The specially designed massage using deep renewal and slow rhythmic movements was everything we needed to bid adieu to all the aches and pains there were. Under the ministrations of our nimble-fingered therapists, we drifted off in a magical reverie of our own. We particularly loved the attention-to-detail and are still raving about the techniques of our therapist which ensured our therapy was not just a superficial spa therapy but an effective one. The test of a good spa is about the experience it delivers. And it’s safe to say that Spa by JW is a spa-radise by all means, no less…
