Chanced upon their website that they are offering a trial 80 min body massage with 20min dry body polish and tummy mask at $58. Seems that the deal is quite worth it, however they need us to indicate our interest in their website first before they call you to fix appointment. Guess how long did they take to call you? I waited almost 3 weeks before i receive their call! I just wondered are they really so popular?
The moment my friend and I stepped into the loft, they gave us a form to fill in our particulars, lifestyle, allergies, etc. Very nice and friendly attitude and certainly make you feel welcomed! They then brought us to 3rd floor whereby the therapists led us to our individual room.
First thing i noticed is that the lighting in the room seems bright and the lights are not dimmed to give a spa feeling throughout the session. The therapist is courteous and also keep asking whether is her level of strength okay with me, any aching part that need extra massage, etc. Her tuina massage skills is really good but abit too strong for me though i have told her to reduce her strength. And, i couldn't take their thermal tummy mask which I find it too hot on my tummy. Within minutes, i felt like a hot iron being pressed onto my tummy! I felt a burning sensation which i immediately told my therapist to remove it! She told me she has placed a mould on my tummy and pour the liquid clay into it whereby it will slowly hardened and release a warm sensation. This mask suppose to helps to reduce fats, promote blood circulation, remove stomach wind, etc. But i not sure why it feel especially burning to me! She told me it's expensive and a waste of money but i replied that i really cannot take it on my tummy and ask her to throw away.
After the massage session, she brought me to another floor whereby there are chairs. sofas and tables and served me complimentry dessert and tea. I requested to have a look at their pool so my friend and I took the lift to the topmost floor. To my disappointment, the pool size is really small and can probably take abt 5-6 ppl at most to avoid overcrowding. There's a corner in the pool that seems like jacuzzi. However, there are some buildings which are higher and probably is able to view you in the pool from afar which i don't really like.
The sale consultants there are really nice and they only asked if you are interested to sign packages with them. If you are not, they will just arrange for you to make payment and did not reveal their packages/prices to you. At least they are not like those typical pushy or insistent sale consultants elsewhere.
