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 …
