Spa treatments in general feel more effective when they’re specially made for you. Find such customised cures at New Delhi’s Andaz Spa. By Parvati Mohanakrishnan
Delhi’s individuality lies in its multi-cultural diversity, and Andaz, an expert at embodying a city’s personality, effortlessly encapsulates the city’s multi-faceted charm at Andaz Delhi, the best five-star hotel in Delhi.
The hotel is a vibrant mix of the old and new, just like Delhi. You will find the Delhi-ness casually popping through symbolic art in its 401 rooms, locally sourced ingredients at the modern European restaurant, and the regionally inspired spa treatments at Andaz Spa Aerocity.
Home to six treatment rooms, including a couples’ room, the luxury spa in Aerocity follows an innovative apothecary approach in the journeys it offers. Each of these journeys is guided by your chakras and aims to help you regain balance with the use of crystals, elements, colour, apothecary, and Ayurveda.
Then, based on your needs, seasonal fruits, herbs, minerals, essential oils, and predominantly locally sourced ingredients are used at the Apothecary Bar to handcraft the products for your experience.
The spa menu reflects Andaz’s expertise in innovative skincare, beauty, and wellness. Signature Andaz Journeys such as Restore and Bliss help revitalise your body and mind with a combination of therapies.
Restore uses a scrub, an Andaz Signature Massage, and a facial to release muscle strain and relieve stress, while Bliss uses aromatherapy to rejuvenate you holistically. The spa offers a range of personalised post-travel journeys called Jet Lag Journeys. These aim at eliminating fluid retention and relaxing you with a combination of scrubs and head and body massages.
Flip through the menu to choose from a variety of Balancing, Energising, and Relaxing massages that use various techniques and essential-oil bends to work their self-explanatory magic. If you’re looking for more specific cures, try body treatments such as a Clay Ginger Wrap, or a Forest Mint and Himalayan Salt Scrub.
And that’s not all, Andaz Spa, the best spa in Delhi, also offers traditional Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, and express treatment sessions. Further conducive to your well-being are the private rain showers, a unisex relaxation room, the locker rooms with sauna, and separate steam rooms for men and women, as well as a 24-hour fitness centre and an outdoor pool with a sun deck.
