Spa review – Tee Planet Beauty and Spa. 

​My friend and I decided to chill out at a spa so we found a Dealdey deal at TeePlanet, Yaba. This was Fola’s first spa experience though she has been curious to try it but hasn’t had the chance. We booked for the next day and got there on time. I should add here that the spa is on the second floor but it is easy to find due to the visible sign on the building. Going up to the spa, I wondered what the spa would look like and was pleasantly surprised that it looked quite nice. 

The waiting area

We were received warmly by one of the attendants who scheduled our visit and redeemed our coupons. We sat in the airy waiting room for sometime before we were shown to a twin therapy room and left alone to get ready. Our session started with the cleansing facials which consisted of a brief facial cleanse and exfoliation. We had different therapists I should add. The facials lasted two minutes before we went for the next step, the body scrub, in which their scrub (made in house) was applied to our skin in about 2 minutes. 


Although we found a way to follow through with the steam session, we found it too small for two people as it was made for one. We both had to stand in it as we had no towels to sit on (the steam room is built for one and therefore had only one seat).  I think they should work on getting another steam room or permit individual steaming sessions. We had a 14-minute steaming session before the scrub was rinsed off. The water was shockingly cold and so was the room so I started shivering after leaving the warmth of the steam room whhooo! As soon as the massage started, I felt nice and warm.

Very dark and relaxing blue lighting

The full body massage was done using a herb infused oil, I should note here that the spa therapist asked if I had any aches before she started. I felt more relaxed at the end when she used a body massager on my limbs and belly. After the massage session, we went to the waiting room and took turns using the foot reflexology massager for about 5 min each.

The spa experience at Tee Planet was nice and will consider visiting the spa again for a quick session if I’m in the area. One downside to the session is that we were a bit rushed through compared to the time frame given on the deal but my skin felt smooth and I felt quite relaxed after the session regardless of time spent (the whole session lasted almost 50 minutes). There was no background music and it felt more like a salon with a therapy room included. Fola was relaxed after the session so I’m sure she would be tagging along in the next one. 

Until then, 

Ciao!

My luxury day spa experience – Spa Naturel. 

I remember it ‘just like it was yesterday’. I had been to a quite a few massage parlors and was a frequent mall massage receiver by the time I found an offer on UK Groupon for a couple’s (they didn’t specify genders) spa day at only £12 pounds. My birthday was coming up (March 20) and I wanted to have a spa day with my friends so I bought 5 of the tickets (birthday giveaway, I guess). I invited 6 friends on the 19th day of March, 2013, using only 3 of the tickets.

I should mention that the spa is Continue reading My luxury day spa experience – Spa Naturel.
