#ExperienceTheEscape at Rewa Escape Spa

The last week of January was quite busy for me and by the end of the month I was totally stressed out.  I realized that the most active part of my body are my hands, be it cooking, Doing household chores, lifting up shopping bags or working on my laptop, every work involves my hands. So, I decided to give some relief to them and went for a manicure session at Rewa Escape Spa.

About Rewa Escape Spa

Situated in the private gardens of the Maharani of Rewa, along the Arabian sea, Rewa Escape is a place that drowns out the noise of city life, lets you have a private dialogue with nature and allows you to listen to your own thoughts.
The Services Offered:
Rewa Escape Spa offers a wide array of services covering from their Signature Therapies, Body Massages, Body Rituals, Forest Essential Facials and Hand & Foot Care Rituals.

My Experience:
As I said I wanted my hands to get the limelight this time, so I decided to go for the Royal Odyssey manicure. It was quite easy to locate the spa, and what a mindblowing location it is. Situated just next to the sea, you can get an amazing view of the famous Haji Ali Dargah. The Spa Manager was extremely courteous and I was offered welcome drink. After a brief chit chat with her, I was asked to fill up a form with my details. Then I was introduced to my therapist Akash.

The Royal Odyssey Session:
The decor of the Rewa Escape spa is simple and warm. From the glass windows the view of the sea can be cherished , while the therapy was going on. The therapy was started with cleaning my hands, and then deep cleansing it with milk. Then there was an exfoliating session with a cocoa scrub that smelled divine. This was followed by a choco-wrap session. This was quite interesting as my hands were almost bathed in liquid chocolaty pack and then wrapped in silver foil. I almost felt like licking the heavenly smelling chocolate. The pack was kept for 20 minutes and then my hands were unwrapped. I could see the big difference. 

Then the usual procedure of manicure was followed up by filing, cutting, trimming and shaping my nails. Then there was the massage session with a chocolaty cream. It was really great - relaxing and stress-relieving. I was so happy when an wide array of nail paints from OPI were showcased in front of me to choose. I chose a deep plum shade. My therapist Akash was so cordial and friendly he even filed, trimmed and nail-painted my foot in addition, although it was not booked. 

The Royal Odyssey manicure at Rewa Escape Spa is definitely something one will love to experience, specially those who need a thorough pampering session. The whole process for 90 minutes actually reflects royalty and gives you an exotic feel. The staff at Rewa Escape Spa is very courteous and friendly. They understand the need of their guests and prepare the service accordingly. The ambiance, location, and the view, the products used for the therapies and the cleanliness is absolutely fabulous. I would definitely go back, this time for a full body treatment and would also recommend everyone who would want to #ExperienceTheEscape for a day.
