MZ and I decided to pamper ourselves at Serenity Spa today, at Grand BlueWave Hotel. We chose the King and Queen Bridal Treat, which is a 5-hour top-to-toe treatment that includes intensive brightening facial, 4-step full body spa, foot scrub, manicure and pedicure.
After the facial, I was led to another room for the next treatment, which is the 4-step full body spa. It's a 2-hour treatment and it started with a 20-minute Thai Herbal Steam (kind of like sauna) and I was given a cup of warm water to drink after that. Then came my favorite treatment of all - the full body aromatherapy massage! I've done a few massages before (at different places), but so far this is the best. The Indonesian masseuse was a nice and polite lady, and she made me feel comfortable and I wasn't shy at all, which makes the whole process relaxing. After massaging, the treatment continues with a full body scrub. It was a choice between ground coffee mixed with clay or Himalayan salt scrub, so I chose coffee bcoz a) I've done salt-scrubbing before, and b) bcoz it helps to reduce cellulite (now if you drink it, the effect will be the opposite!). There was not a single part of my body that was not being scrubbed by the masseuse - depan belakang atas bawah, semua kena scrub! ;p But I felt squeaky clean after that! The last step of the full body spa is soaking in a tub of milk mixed with lavender oil, with candles surrounding the tub. Heaaaaavenn!
Finally came the foot scrub. My feet were soaked in antiseptic + lavender oil + flower petals, and scrubbed using sea salt and something else, which I'm not sure what it was. And as usual, before ending a treatment, we we served hot tea... Overall, thumbs up, especially the body spa. I am definitely coming again (as for facial, I still prefer Kaj above all).
p/s: Remember my wisdom teeth? Well, there was no pain for about a week after taking the meds but now they're aching again - even worse than before! Why laaaa...? *sigh* I guess I'll have to see the dentist tomorrow for more antibiotics..
