Rhea Dhanbhoora finds out if Suara, the newly opened Juhu spa, lives up to its promise of relieving stress, worries, aches and pains
After a tiring day at work, the thought of a stress relieving massage at Suara Spa was an indulgent one. Suara has four rooms and a couple’s suite, each one uniquely decorated with painted flowers and candles. The rooms are spacious yet manage to be cozy as well.
After filling in a form about my problem areas, I opted for a Suara Signature Massage (`2,000 for a 60 minute massage and `3,000 for a 90 minute massage) which is a combination that’s tailored to suit your needs. I settled in for a luxurious massage, where my aches and pains were pressed, twisted and kneaded away by my masseuse with a generous slathering of oil, a cool mask over my eyes and soft, soothing music in the background. What I liked was that the masseuse paid special attention to the problems areas I had mentioned on the form.
I was so relaxed that she had to tell me twice that the massage was over before I opened my eyes. After the massage, I was treated to a steam where I enjoyed my alone time in a luxurious shower with green tea soap, antioxidant shampoo and body cream. At the end, I was made to fill in a feedback form and was treated to complimentary watermelon balls and tea. I also tried the delicious Cucumber, Apple & Mint juice (`175) from their juice bar.
The treatments at Suara Spa are priced the same as almost any other spa. They have massages ranging from `1,600 onwards, facials for `1,500, body cocoons for `1,800, scrubs for `1,250 and head, foot and back massages for a reasonable `650 onwards. They also have packages such as the Vivid Princess (`5,000 for four hours) which is a rhythmic fusion of an Aroma massage, Foot Reflexology, Jasmine Body Exfoliate, a Sandalwood Body Cocoon and a Glow Face Pack, so pamper yourself all day long.
