Don’t you want to escape the routine and take a break? We are always complaining and crying our heart out to escape this monotonous life and do something that relaxes our mind, body and soul. In that pursuit, we are constantly looking through magazine articles or online reviews to find that ultimate destination. We are careful to mark long weekends on our calendars and plan trips – a stressful exercise again, if you ask me. May be you don’t need to worry about flight schedules and may be you don’t need to plan much ahead of time.
One such getaway is not too far from the busy capital of India. No stress, no sweat, just take the wheel and go on a long drive, reaching Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort, Greater Noida.
Relaxation within reach
Housed within this lavish property, the famed Six Senses Spa is the apt place to rejuvenate your exhausted self. Rephrasing the famous Internet meme, “Keep calm and rejuvenate”, fits perfectly here. The one of a kind spa offers numerous exquisite therapies and treatments. It is spread across three floors, sprawling over 90,000 sq ft. The spa is so beautifully planned and designed that it looks nearly hand crafted. Each section of the spa maintains authenticity. The soothing upholstery, serene murals, calm water and pristine marble beds makes it look like yet another wonder of the world. .
My experience at Six Senses Spa in Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort has left me rejuvenated for a good part of my life. Work is priority for all of us. But then, when the going gets tough, being selfish helps. I literally escaped into this blissful abode only to endlessly thank my decision later.
The team at the reception greeted me warmly with a friendly smile. A shot of homegrown ginger tea gave me an amazing high-on-life boost. As is consistent with the philosophy of Six Senses Spas around the world, most of the herbs and shrubs used here are grown in-house, under the supervision of experts, to maintain their quality and purity.
I was escorted and shown around the three floored expansive health and wellness facility. I felt I was going through an extravagant menu. The well-equipped fitness center included kinesis machines, hi-tech gym equipment and an exotic juice bar that served detox shots prepared from a rich collection of home grown herbs. The background music set you in right mood. The retail gallery offers international cosmetic and lifestyle products. The meditation cave, Thai treatment rooms, luxurious Hammam single and couple therapy rooms, yoga and pilate workout areas, Watsu therapy pool and other aerobic pool and lap pools for water fitness constitute a part of the Six Senses universe in Noida. Eager to begin my experience, I identified my therapist and waited for his instructions.
The land of ‘do nothing’
After changing into the spa attire, as told to do by my therapist, we headed towards the Thai treatment room. The treatment began with a sound therapy comforting mind and body. Sounds of a vibrating vessel with a small wooden piece moving in circular motion created surround sound magical effect. Soon this was followed by instrumental music wafting from an iPod. While I was lying down comfortably, my therapist started his magical tricks. Thai massage is relaxing and rejuvenating focusing on one’s pressure points and gentle stretching along the body’s energy channels. A dry therapy, it is offered fully clothed.
Also known as lazy man’s yoga, this therapy encourages a person to leave his/her body in the hands of the therapist and do nothing. The therapist, in turn, performs stretching and pressure techniques only to bring out results beyond ones imagination. The session lasted for almost one hour thirty minutes. If you want to meet the newer and better version of yourself…go for it. It’s an absolutely ‘worth it’ therapy.
The most recommended therapies at Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort are Six Senses Signature Massage, Traditional Moroccan Hammam, Colonic Hydrotherapy and Watsu – Shiatsu Water Therapy. Also not to miss out on is the quick stretching and acupressure treatment for Golfers to re-energize after the lengthy day-long 18 hole course play. Most of the treatments could be customized focusing on important areas.
The Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort is constantly evolving and innovating. They leave no stone unturned when it comes to bringing novelty to their products and services. Need an example? During one of the corporate events hosted at the property, the participants were tired and exhausted with consistently brainstorming ideas and obstacles. It almost seemed impossible for everyone to leave the meeting and take a break. The experts at the resort, however, came up with this novel idea of bringing the spa to the conference room. So instead of moving out, the entire conference room was converted into a therapy session. Bingo! The outcome was amazing, the exhausted corporates felt fresh as new born babies. They were up and running, the conference room in no time was flooded with fresh ideas.
Make a visit. I am sure that the team at Jaypee and Six Senses Spa is waiting to surprise you with yet another trick up their sleeve. They already know what you need.
