If a staycation is the door to rejuvenation, then a spa therapy is the key to it. After a month of overworking ourselves, we decided to conclude September by taking ourselves to a much-needed staycation at Holiday Inn, Mumbai International Airport.
The plush property overlooking the heart of the city is what the best of both worlds (Business and leisure trips) are all about. Since we had mentally noted that this was our break from routine, it was only fair to listen to our sore muscles and book an appointment at their in-house spa, Tattva Spa featuring a hospitable team who ensures that woes and sore muscles are left behind for you to feel afresh.
Since this 4 roomed, spacious spa and wellness boutique is open to everyone (Yes, not just hotel guests) we decided to share our experience with you and tell you why you should unwind at Tattva Spa, Mumbai.
1. Indian Traditions Galore: In a time when most hospitality chains, spa and wellness centres are biting the westernisation bullet, Tattva Spa has gracefully managed to embrace modernity while restoring the ancient Indian tradition of Atithi Devo Bhavo which translates to: The guest is equivalent to God.
Upon entering the spa, we were welcomed with a glass of Kokum juice while we were spoilt for choices amidst the extensive variety of services available. Once we finalised our choice of service, (Deep tissue massage for those knotted muscles) the experience was furthermore customised to suit our requirement by offering us Ayurvedic oils to pick from. They let you sniff through each of the fragrances and go with the one that soothes your senses.
Before getting started with the therapy, the masseuse thoroughly cleansed our feet, symbolising a mark of a heart-warming traditional welcome.
2. Sorting out, literally: Our deep tissue massage was all about sorting out those knotted muscles, keeping in check the pressure and room temperature to our comfort.
To ensure that you’re at your best comfort (Sorting you out in every way), the spa room accommodates a wardrobe where you can safely house your belongings. A side-table holds water bottles in case you need to take a water break.
Once the spa and steam session are concluded, you’re provided with all the essentials from a towel to a moisturiser to help you rinse off the oil.
3. A wellness retreat: While the overall experience proved to be a wellness retreat for us, the team at Tattva spa leaves no stone unturned to do just that. Once we stepped out feeling rejuvenated after a shower, we were served warm organic tea (We had the Jasmine tea) with honey on the side which helped us relieve the soreness even more.
P.S: So here’s why you should unwind at Tattva Spa, Mumbai. A wellness retreat in the span of an hour, sounds like a good idea right? Until next time, #StayCurious 🙂
