My love for spas isn’t a hidden fact! I don’t make any fuss in admitting that I love exploring new spa outlets every now and then. So, if I am not working or shopping, I am definitely spa-ing. Time is luxury and opting for spas in that precious pamper time is like a double whammy! But wait, this time the spotlight wasn’t on me. I wanted my co-blogger and dear friend-Shagun to experience a spa that sure wins my vote for being the most innovative day spa in the recent times. Quietly nestled amidst the hustle-bustle of Defence Colony Market is Seven Seas Evania Spa.The place gets its inspiration from Santorini in Greece and is done-up beautifully in hues of blue, gold and white. You come here once and it’s definite that you’re going to fall in love with it. Trust me, I am not even getting down to counting my number of visits to this few months old spa outlet. And why should I stop myself from touring a place that gets the best from around the world. The menu is rather out of the box as you get to treat yourself from the likes of Chocolate Fondue, Blueberry Cheese Cake or Hot Lava Shell Massage. So, having tried and tested it myself, I urged Shagun to unravel an unusual spa experience.
Here is Shagun narrating all about her first spa date:
If I state that spas are rejuvenating, it’ll be pointless for its no news. So don’t sulk because that’s not what I have to say but what I have to share with you is a spa which is out of the ordinary and after the experience I well agree with Sonali. Imagine a spa that can relax you and felicitate for your meetings professional and personal both at the same time. I really adore the idea of chatting while getting a relaxing foot massage. That’s exactly what Seven Seas Evania is all about. Thanks to my chum Sonali who insisted that I visit this spa and the sweet therapist, Chong who treated me with a tempting foot massage.
From the spa’s extensively indulgent menu, I chose the Blueberry Cheesecake treatment. From the first moment I heard the name, I fell I love with the treatment for the love of blueberry cheesecake. I knew this was going to be one yummy indulgence and my feet would be instigated to forgive me for not taking care of them for so long.
The staircase leading to the basement is beautifully adorned with raw textured white hue and chrome lighted hanging lamps that add illumination.
The interiors are equally interesting with a raw and earthy feel to it. You instantly feel disconnected from the worldly stress as you enter the spa treatment room. Big comfy white chairs entice you to rest yourself as the therapists prepare for the treatment followed by a short brief about the chosen treatment.
Starting with cleansing the feet using crushed rose petals, she softly scrubbed my feet with a specially formulated cream to get rid of dead skin particles. What I had been anticipating was the next step that is of massage. For this she used a white lotus cream that not only relaxed but also made the skin smooth and silky. (Yes, it did)
Fortunately, I had Suvrat, our photographer on the next chair whom I kept chatting with or else I was sure to sleep off. So relaxing and mesmerizing, the treatment was a pampering session for my feet. Now was the real yummy time, as my feet were treated with an aromatic Blueberry gel.
As the treatment came to an end, I was offered a complimentary back and shoulder massage which came as a cherry on the cake. If you are someone who’s always glued onto the workstation, then this massage is sure to relax those tired shoulders and neck.
Like they say that everything should have a sweet end, then this spa keeps up to the belief as they offer you lip-smacking ice cream before you step out of the place so heavenly.
And while Shagun was away, I got chatting with the person behind this gorgeous project- Arpit Sharma. Here is a little inside into our conversation to get you answers to the not-so often asked questions:
• Is it a good idea to come here for a date?
Arpit: Well, our spa specializes in hand and foot treatments and we like people who love themselves. This place is pretty good for a date because you can come here, relax- gift yourself and your partner a lovely treatment. It’ll be a wonderful experience for both!
• How about having a birthday party at the spa? What are the special offerings like?
Arpit: We give the guests a very special treat. We book the whole place for them, we serve them wine and champagne. Also, a very special cake is ordered. And to add to that we offer really special treatments.
