SERENO SPA, PARK HYATT GOA

Want to escape for the weekend? Sereno Spa at Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa is the perfect destination for some 'me time' to pamper yourself. A destination spa in plush South Goa, it's perfect for a holistic holiday that pampers, rejuvenates and allows you to lose yourself in its stunning sea-facing locale. Spread over 28,000 sq ft, the spa seamlessly combines scrubs and massages — a source of pride for the spa as it zeroes in on knots and kinks. The body treatments — drawing inspiration from Ayurvedic and Yogic tradition — is as languorous as the massages are vigorous. Tightly edited for focus and effectiveness, the spa menu emphasises hands-on methods including the signature Absolute Pearl Facial, Aloe Body Wrap and Cashew Nut Scrub.

 

Walking in ten minutes prior to a 3 p.m. appointment, the staff gave me a lowdown of how my cashew therapy worked. Shower — Cashew Nut Scrub — Shower and Steam — Cashew Nut Oil Massage. In that order! After a quick shower in a tulsi-fragranced spa suite, my masseuse scrubbed sea salt into my feet a a cleansing ritual and then began the task of thoroughly exfoliating me with a cashew nut scrub. An hour later, it was time for steam and Kapha balancing short cold shower in the therapy suite following which I indulged myself with a 90-minute massage with cashew nut oil. The massage was so relaxing that I almost dozed off… only to be gently woken up with luscious smooth-as-silk skin. She advised me not to bathe overnight so the rich cashew nut oil works its magic and seeps in the skin. Also on the richer side is the pricing though the clientele seem happy to shell out for what I would describe 'princess pampering'.

 

Relaxed and ravenous for the dinner awaiting me at the resort's modern Goan restaurant, I walked into the spa lounge with attractive views of a quiet, moonlit beach where I was served herb tea and then shopped for skincare lotions to soothe my parched skin while I awaited a buggy to take me to my room — and those lotions continue to work its magic till date. Is it a wonder then that Sereno Spa has several awards including 'Hall of Fame' for 'Best Resort Spa' at asiaSpa India Awards 2013, reinstating its position as a leading resort spa in the nation?
