I was invited to enjoy a day of pampering at Rola’s Beauty Lounge (Salon & Spa). They are located in Symphony Mall-2nd Floor. God knows how much I needed this day. Took Juju to my grandmother’s house & I left to Salmiya to relax & enjoy my day, and I did 🙂
I tend to try almost every nail spa that opens in the country. I love pampering myself & I also love trying new places. A couple of days ago I was in Jabriya & came across this fancy name (Pretty Petals Nail Spa) so I decided to give them a visit & took my aunt with me 🙂
The place was very relaxing & quiet. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The decoration was amazing, loved every corner of the spa. Even the mini kitchen was so cute.
My aunt & I chose the petal treatment. She went with Citrus & I chose Vanilla with Plum. Elma & Joy worked on both our hands & feet, they were very professional & they were asking us about every single detail. They wouldn’t do anything before letting us know in advance.
The prices were verrrry reasonable unlike other nail spas.
And if you want a foot massage, you have to let Elma do it for you, my god she was amazzzzzzing, she knew about the places that needed massage in my feet & worked on them very hard, it was kinda painful but very relaxing. Good thing my aunt was driving 😛
Pretty Petals Nail Spa is located in Jabriya block 1 next to Zero Degrees & The Dragon Japanese Restaurant.
Yesterday, I went to Nailtini for the 1st time because the nail spa i always go to was closed and because this one was the closest to my house. Let me tell you what a rip off experience i had . . . Everything was perfect, the treatment, the lady who did my nails was an expert, the coloring, the mood, everything was perfect except for that they charge their customers for everything . . . literary for everything which made me feel it was a cheap move from the nail spa.
A couple of days ago I was really tired & i needed some pampering & relaxing. Been wanting to try Nails & Co for ages but time hasn’t been on my side lately. Thank god they have a branch in Mishref. Called them, set an appointment & headed there around 7:30pm. The place was hidden inside the cosmetic centre & it was very small, so tiny & white. I loved it, coz I was being pampered alone & felt the space was all mine, watching The Smurfs & chatting with one of the employees there 🙂
I didn’t have any plans for today & I didn’t want to stay home in this lovely weather! I just wanted to go out. Many places came on mind but then I thought “why not have a relaxing-joyful-day at Six Senses Spa located at Missoni Hotel. Called them, booked my session (De-Stress Massage) at 4:30pm and went there around 4pm 🙂
You go outside to the pool area & from there you head to the spa . . . just passing by the pool in this lovely weather infront of The Arabian Gulf is so relaxing & soothing.
The lovely staff welcomed me & gave me a very delicious water mixed with mint, lemon & i think apple! They gave me a tour around the spa, introduced me to the spa’s sections & then asked me to change my clothes & wait for someone to get me.
A very smiley lady came to me & showed me the way to my room, she was very nice & gentle. Mantana was her name & she’s from Thailand! She asked me wether i want the massage Light, Medium or Firm. I asked medium to firm but after the first press on my back i asked her to stick to medium 😛
Her hands were very soft & relaxing, the music& the atmosphere of the room too. I really loved my De-Stress massage. Pricey though (KD 30/-) but I’d go there again for sure 😀
Finally, sm1 brought those hungry fish from the far east (i guess) to K-Town. I first tried them back in 2009 in Malaysia, where I started laughing hysterically and made everybody watch me and laugh with me LOL! Dad got angry and tried to shut my mouth but honestly, I just couldnt control myself! I tried it later again in Singapore last February in a very elegant spa inside Marina Bay Sands Mall.
