We all head over to Macau often, but rarely do we stay for the day and treat ourselves. A recent trip to The Conrad, Macao, resulted in the fabulous discovery of their awesome Bodhi Spa, amongst many other amenities.
The Bodhi Spa has ten spa suites with full changing, shower and steam sauna facilities. They offer 3 different styles of spa treatments Aboriginal, Ayurvedic and Asian. You can find everything from facials, full body massages, body scrubs, reflexology and they even have a hair salon! With prices ranging from 125-3300 they have a service that will fit everyone, at some super affordable prices.
When we entered the spa, the tranquil warm atmosphere caused us to leave our stress behind instantaneously. They walked us into a comfortable semi-private area to go over the menu and served us fabulously calming lavender tea. The options are seemingly limitless and I had to narrow down what I wanted and needed. My friend opted for their Pitta Abhyanga Ayurvedic 90 minute massage (1,180 MOP weekday price / 1,240 MOP weekend price), and I can tell you, she was definitely relaxed for the remainder of the day! After perusing the menu I finally decided on a facial.
I work hard and, because I also play hard, I want to stay looking young! Therefore, I opted for the Collagen Smoothing Facial (1,380 MOP weekday price / 1,450 MOP weekend price), which claimed "guaranteed instant results."
To begin, they ushered us into a beautifully laid out room and then into the changing area, where we could shower and start to get ready. They provided us with the softest robes ever, then they started the treatment with an enchanting foot bath. We were then guided to our treatment tables and from there it was simply heaven.
My technician talked me through each step of the treatment. The hot steam made my pores and face open up easily and thankfully she was gentle with me through the entire procedure. The aftermath: I felt refreshed, younger, my skin felt tighter and a few of my worry lines had visibly receded! I was so happy with my treatment that I walked around the Hotel fresh faced the rest of the afternoon.
Now, days later, I still notice the differences in my skin. My skin is more balanced, not quite as oily, my blemishes are all but non-existent. Every time I apply my foundation, I notice how smooth my skin still feels. To sum things up, if you are in need of a good facial and a great experience, I recommend catching a ferry and checking out the Bodhi spa, you will not regret it!
