The Palms Spa, Mumbai
Hidden in the heart of Maximum City, this sanctuary offers up an interesting menu of summer special scrubs and indulgent herbal detoxes.
Within the gated tranquillity of Dhanraj Mahal in Colaba, the blossoming bougainvillea and chirping birds calm the senses before you head for your massage—the quietude making it hard to believe you’re just a stone’s throw away from the hustle-bustle of the Gateway of India.
The Palms Spa has a range of massages and skincare rituals, and has now increased their menu to encompass an array of therapies from the hydrating Mandarin and Mango Scrub to the Cherry Blossom and Lotus Escape Ritual.
Our pick was the Detox Herbal Compress Massage, which incorporates an ancient Thai and Indian healing remedy. A 75-minute treatment, it had the deft masseuse kneading each individual part of the body followed immediately by a steamed herbal compress that seemed like a rude awakening given the soothing strokes, scents and music almost had us nodding off. We were informed that this little bundle of herbs draws out toxins leaving the muscles relaxed, while the massage stimulates circulation and flow of energy. And though we didn’t get our beauty sleep on the massage table, post a languid shower and cuppa we were totally rejuvenated, raring to go.
Address: Ground Floor, Dhanraj Mahal, Colaba, Mumbai – 400 005.
