We take two new spas – in Mumbai and Bengaluru – on a test run
Book your appointment at these two swanky new spas
THE RITZ-CARLTON SPA, BANGALORE
The luxury hotel chain opened its doors for the first time in India recently and obviously, we made straight to their spa. Sprawling over 1,580 sqm, the spa has 12 excellent treatment rooms and one super-swanky VIP suite. I was recommended the Jaali from their exhaustive menu, and what a treat it was. Two people ease out the stress from your body with a rhythmic four-hand massage and hot aromatic oils. And just when you think you’re done, hot volcanic stones are rubbed strategically over you, leaving you in a state of utter immobile bliss. I topped off the treatment with a dip in the spa’s heated pool. The multiple pressure jet nozzles wound up what was an unforgettable experience.
