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 …

Who doesn’t know about B:Blunt? Well I truly admire Adhuna Akhtar for her chic styling, down to earth nature and peppy tune up her stilettos (although she wore flats to this launch). So when I received the invitation to attend the “LAUNCH PARTY OF B:BLUNT MINI, VASANT VIHAR, DELHI, INDIA” I was overwhelmed. They already have B:Blunt Salon and Blow Out Bar at G.K. 2, and this is the first time that they have launched B:Blunt Mini. How are these 3 different? B:Blunt …is our mother brand – a salon that holds everything we have to offer…and more! Come in and be pampered by the finest hairdressers, manicurists, beauticians and dermatologists that India has to offer… and more! But we know that it is not always easy to get to us from far and wide which is why we have created b:blunt mini. B:Blunt Mini …is exactly that – a smaller b:blunt – your neighbourhood beauty salon. All of the stylists in mini are all trained to a b:blunt level so the quality is what you have come to expect from us. Offering haircuts/colours/straightening/treatments, waxing, threading, facials… b:blunt may be small but it is perfectly formed! Blow Out Bar …a completely new concept to the world! A place for you to go to prepare yourself for a night out or a big event – have a blow-dry, throw in some hair extensions, get your nails and make-up done… bring yourself, bring your friends… this is going to be fun! The party was an absolute treat which consisted of the following… Great Ambience. The entire B:Blunt team wore B:Blunt Mini tees, and many actually suggested to do a mini Flash Mob. ROFL. Extreme Right (Red Lips) is chirpy Nicole ^_^ Absolutely happy B:Blunt Team. Front : Girish Sehgal Back : Brent Barber Adhuna …
