A few weeks back (I know this review is much delayed. Sorry!), I received an invite to visit the Thai Refresh Spa. This is my thoughts about the overall experience. It was truly wonderful.
Read on to know more.
Here is the introduction of the lovely place:
The power of touch
The crazy pace of today’s lifestyle can take a greater toll on one’s health and stress levels than one would care to acknowledge. A massage or spa treatment can do you a world of good and Thai Refresh ensures to rejuvenate you in its luxurious ambiance. It is essential to not only look good on the outward but feel good from inside. Thus, it could be useful to spend some time off your hectic schedule and prepare to feel fresh and radiate inner peace and health.
Thai Refresh is a modern haven to revitalize body and mind and has now opened its doors at Indiranagar 100Ft. road, Bangalore offering ancient Thai and Western massages in a truly authentic way along with revolutionary enhancement for spa and skin care treatments. Thai Refresh Spa pampers its guests with quintessential therapies that lean towards holistic healing modalities that use natural products and ancient healing arts rather than the extensive use of machines. Their services focus on unwinding the body, mind, spirit and the benefits of massage and spa therapies go beyond mere relaxation and beautification.

It welcomes you with tranquil lighting, music, aroma and serenity. It’s a different world altogether and the spa ensures that you leave the place only once you are rejuvenated.
The most unique feature of the spa is the exotic aromas of spices and pure essential oils, the gentle sound of soothing music that will bathe your senses and lull you into a state of relaxed bliss.

The therapists may also apply stones massage as it stimulates deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. The benefits of hot stones are endless as it expands blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones also have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Thai Refresh Spa, My Review:
I rode my new Vespa to the Spa and the directions given to me were easy enough to follow. I saw the board of the Spa on top of the building. When I reached there, I found that there was a confusion and they thought I was in a car and had arranged for their Valet Parking. The guy even asked me if he could park my Vespa but I parked it anyway. I thought that was a good option because I know how hard it is to find a parking space in Indira Nagar.
Once I got into the spa, I found that it was the most peaceful place! The reception had a huge Buddha water sequence which made the most calming sounds. I felt I could just sit there and listen to the sounds the whole day!
After I was done picking my aromatic spa with the consultation of Mr. Arjun from Thai Refresh. Then I was given a tour of all that Thai Refresh offered (mentioned in the introduction) and then taken into the room for the Spa with the amazing masseuse, Naomi.
I was provided disposable clothes and then she started her work. I felt the most comfortable and she kept asking about the pressure. I almost fell asleep a few times and I could feel all the pain and the muscle tension drain away slowly.
At the end of the full body massage she asked me if I needed a head massage and I really needed one. So she did that too without the feeling of hair being tugged and pulled away. I really liked the massage experience.
Later, I was offered a shower cap which I happily accepted because I didn’t want to wash it right then. And after a hot shower, I was ready for a whole new week of more strain!
Four out of the Five massage rooms are designed for couple massages too. In addition to serving as two separate massage rooms, the connecting walls are movable and it would make it a huge single room where you and your partner will get the massage side by side.
I highly recommend the Thai Refresh Spa. It is the most peaceful and beautiful I have been in (and I have been to quite a few, including the one in Taj Kovalam) and it is filled with the most friendly people. Just go there to sit at the reception and drown in the sounds of flowing water. It is a perfect place for a luxurious spa experience.
