SPA REVIEW: Spa Alila

Alila Jabal Akhdar is a luxury five-star hotel that revolves around the concept of health and wellness. The hotel pride itself on having all the elements essential to restore balance to mind, body and soul. 

To get a real feeling of what Alila Jabal Akhdar is all about, an ultimate pampering treatment at Spa Alila is simply a must.

During our 5 days and 4 nights stay at the hotel, we were able to indulge in a luxurious couple's massage which includes the use of wet facilities, an amazing foot bath and a 90-minute therapeutic massage.

We booked our appointment during our 2nd day at the hotel and had our massage treatment on our 4th day.

Upon entering the spa, the spa receptionist greeted us with notable friendliness and helpfulness. She immediately ushered us into the intimate waiting room with a warm cup of herbal tea in hand. Soon, our masseuses came to us. They introduced themselves and asked us to choose an essential oil that we wanted to use for our massage. They also inquired about our preferred massage pressure, which body parts we wanted to focus on and medical issues if there's any.

After that, we were led to the changing room and shown the wet facilities. We were given 40 minutes to enjoy the sauna and the indoor spa.

Once finished, our masseuses escorted us to the treatment room where we started off with an amazing foot bath followed by a therapeutic body massage.

By the end of our session, we were in entirely calm state of mind, and were encouraged to make use of the spaโ€™s relaxation room before changing into our clothes. 

Overall, it was a great experience.
