Celebrating International Friendship Day at Zen The Spa

Zen The Spa in Al Ghurair Rayhaan Rotana

Happy International Friendship Day everyone! Who did you celebrate your friendship day with?

I'm not sure if I have mentioned it at all but I love bringing my roommies with me whenever I attend events. They are always one of my guests or 'plus one' - we are a package and I make sure that they enjoy what I get too. And if I can actually bring all four of them, I would!

But it's a special day today so it's time to take one of the roomies, Myra, out at Zen The Spa at Al Ghurair Rayhaan Rotana. I'm a regular here and we get special discounts from Mr. F (that you can avail too if you check it here) so it's worth trying to get  one session of 60-min. aromatherapy massage with lunch for each of us.

I've been here many times thus, I feel at home whenever I arrive at their lobby greeted by their receptionists with a pot of tea and warm towel on the side. The area is quiet with dim lights and they keep noise to a minimum to make sure that every guest who book for an appointment gets the relaxation they need.

SPA rooms

A locker will be provided with a bathrobe, towel, pair of slippers, and a few other personal things for your hygiene. You can also place your belongings in the locker as you will be given a key that you can keep while enjoying the rest of your SPA day.

When we entered the room, our feet were washed with warm soapy water like those of the Goddesses. We laid our body on the massage bed right after and the rest was history.

One thing that I can remember though is the stroke that was made on my back near the neck, it was really relaxing. There are some stress points that the therapists triggered like those behind the back of your head, the heels of your feet, and hands that surprisingly awakened my senses. I felt relieved right after the session.

We also enjoyed the rest of facilities like the relaxation lounge, steam and sauna bath, and the jacuzzi. All these with overflowing serving of organic tea.

The fun part didn't end here, the spa session was followed by a sumptous lunch at Liwan Restaurant. Every Saturday, they serve variety of Asian menu. What do you think is the food we enjoyed the most? Dumpling and sushi, obviously.
