We recently shared our love for The Umrao Luxury Hotel by sharing a glimpse of this luxurious property on the busy NH8 zone. Now, we talk about its unwinding facility known as U Spa! Just like any other luxury hospitality group, The Umrao too has a corner on the property for guests and members to relax by the pool, get some fitness training at their fitness centre and take beautifying or rejuvenating treatments at U Spa. U Spa in itself is a detailed spa facility which offers therapies like Head Massage, Classical Swedish Massage, Foot Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage and Aromatherapy. Our team took the Deep Tissue Massage and the Foot Reflexology Massage and both turned out to be equally relaxing. The massage rooms are super spacious with a tea lounge, if you’d like to pamper yourself before or after the therapy. The light setting is calm, the fragrance soothing and the music relaxing to setup the mood right. Both the Deep Tissue Massage and Foot Reflexology lasted an hour with dedicated massage therapists making sure your nerves are soothed and muscles relaxed to perfection. The staff, although limited, knows through and through of therapies, guiding the customers through Spa protocols, maintains a hygienic environment and puts utmost care in maintaining your privacy. Once you are done with the therapy, you can take a pampering bubble bath at their super spacious and relaxing bathtub setup. If you have time constraints or would prefer to sweat naturally, then U Spa also offers fully functional Sauna and Steam rooms. U Spa connects with a fitness centre, wherein residences and members can take up cardio and strength training under the surveillance of expert fitness trainers. In case you’d like to be a regular member of the fitness centre, then they do offer membership packages as …

Quan Spa – JW Marriott, Delhi Review

JW Marriott Quan Spa Review

There was a time when Delhi had a few selective spa salons. But over the years this western version of a massage has found it’s way into our metro cities as a full flourished business. Every defined region of Delhi has at least one spa standing, which is kinda convenient for the daily churners who like to avoid travelling; but how many of them actually stand by the hygiene and excellency terms that a spa requires? I have had good experience at spas and have had never-going-back kinda nightmares at some spa setups too. Although, their are a few spa abodes in the city that are not only at par with the standards of a successful spa, but are also a niche above the rest in the luxury department. One such spa of excellence and luxury is the Quan Spa at JW Marriott, Aerocity – New Delhi. I was recently invited to experience their hospitality and also try out their ‘Monsoon Special’ Spa rituals. I warded off the #MondayBlues by opting to get a spa therapy at this exquisite spa. On arrival at the grand JW Marriott Aerocity, I met Mr. Nikhil from their marketing department, who guided me on to the 2nd floor which is reserved for Quan Spa. The moment the elevator gates opened, I got a whiff of soothing lemon grass and a vague melody of relaxing music with dimmed out lights and a very unwinding environment. Boy! I was in spa heaven. Pools of rose petals welcomed me to the reception area where I was seated for my appointment.   The receptionist discussed which monsoon spa ritual will work best for me and asked me to fill out their acquaintance form which helps the masseuse understand pressure points and problem areas to be focused on. Since I …

Himalaya Herbals Hair Care Range Review

July 30, 2015
Himalaya Herbals Hair Care Range_1

The beauty of women might lie in her eyes, but it is her beautiful tresses that woo a man away. So much so, that our very own Bollywood has been writing song odes to the magic of wide flowing hair. But the picture looks more like a drama than a real life segment because nobody’s got smooth silky hair, say what?! Truth be told, it is a task in today’s time to take care of a healthy hair care regime. Forget the styling part, but the basic requirement of keeping the hair in the best condition possible is no less than going to war. From dryness, flakiness, dehydration, hair fall, dandruff, oily scalp, split ends to the rigorous prayers of growing hair longer than the deadline is no less than a nightmare. Top it all with the evil eyes of commercial hair (not so) care brands that promise fighting for you, while in reality they are the chemical gods in disguise hiding the multiple after effects of curing one problem. Imagine applying a serum/shampoo to ward off dandruff, which actually ends up drying your scalp off to the extent that the pores become dehydrated, resulting in dull and weak hair strands. In our desi world of Ayurveda and centuries old ritual of applying organic formulas to cure almost any bodily problem, there are certain brands that are still following the norms. Scientifically proven, most of the organic bases are harmless to our body and their results are long lasting as opposed to the chemical treatments that come with an expiry date. Himalaya Herbals is one such Indian brand that is not only convincingly priced, but their ever evoluting products too are quite promising. Been following their products since a long time now, I have seen their products and ranges developing …
