Relax, rejuvenate, refresh and live vicariously as Amy Fernandes and Averil Nunes take you around the world’s best spas

 

 

Refresh at The Leela Palace, Udaipur

You know you’ve approached The Leela Palace Udaipur, when you see it. It’s splendorous in its luxury. The spa, managed by ESPA is dedicated to make you feel like Cleopatra or Caesar, whichever sex you may belong to. Located in the courtyard, you make your way through a thicket of beautiful greenery, preparing your senses for what is to come. As always I opt for a deep tissue massage. The combination of skillful strokes with therapeutic treatments and products developed from organic plant extracts and oils, immediately relaxes you. A little more time and you zone out while deft hands work their magic on you. All too soon (for me, it’s always all too soon), it’s time to return to earth. But you feel lighter, energised and for the next few hours, I am happy to meet the person in me again. Amy Fernandes

 

Relax at Jean-Claude Biguine, Paris

You can experience the best of France, right here in India, at the Jean-Claude Biguine, Spa and Salon in Bandra, or perhaps Colaba, if that’s closer to home for you. An uber-luxe soothing ambience, with high-end products (including a few organic and patented creations) made of the best ingredients money can buy, experts on hand to customise a treatment for you and what more can one ask for? From trend-setting hair-cuts and ramp-worthy make-up to organic facials, manicures and pedicures—their menu is extensive, but we’re here for what seems to be a rage in haircare circles these days—a hair spa. And so I sink into a chair made of the finest Italian technology. It massages the aches and kinks collected from a day’s worth of desk work right out of my back as a hair therapist kneads some sea-minerals in to my scalp, massaging a few niggling worries right out of my mind. And that’s where I’ll leave you while I enjoy the rest of my experience. @AverilNunes
