I had mani-pedi, and my nails were done the some times as my pedi what I find not very relaxing- you end up in weird body twists when the manicurist is trying to reach your hand. but anyway, probably this is how it is there.
Pedicure was done with the blades. My nails started chipping after 2-3 days (disappointing).
Staff chatting all the times in their language, I felt a bit intimidated after one hour, not knowing what they giggle about.
Good points: the staff was nice and polite, clean venue, you can see them sterilise the tools; pedi done throughout, looking professional.
I went for the pedicure. The terapist was an angel- so nice, and professional. The only thing I'd say is I'd rather have my heels done with the rubbers than the blade. Otherwise- excellent! My toes look, and feel, heavenly.
The spa is beautifully made, and the view is magnificent- as someone had observed earlier on. Showers, lockers etc are great.
The swimming pool is really a very small therapy pool, and the sauna lacks 1) a timer, 2) the temperature (when I was in, it was barely warm; I told the staff about that but it didn't improved by the time my treatment was due).
My treatment- a really and truly a great one! I was in the bliss, I will be back for sure. The therapist was efficient and nice, not talking too much and allowing me to stay in peace.
Please do remember you will need a £1 for a locker.
The appointment was on time, my therapist was very professional, throughout and nice. Everything you would need!
I do recommend
I had a Hair Colouring and Highlights Treatments and have awarded it 5 stars.
My therapist was very nice, the treatment was good, although I didn't get the oil on the end (I thought this is a standard in the professional manicure nowadays)
Overall it was a very good value; atmosphere there is quite chilly and I didn't feel welcome after I showed my Wahanda voucher
The therapy room is actually on the back of the hotel gym, so a bit busy, but once you're inside, it is ok. My therapist Anna was very knowledgeable and friendly, and explained every step of the treatment.
I was very happy with her.
Reception is not so friendly- when I arrived no one was there, so I had to wait on my own, not really knowing what to do, as it was 5 min to my scheduled treatment. The receptionist eventually arrived, gave me the usual form to fill in, and after around 10-15 min I was ushered to the treatment room- no apologies for delay and no explanation, either.
The sauna is smallish yet I was mostly on my own there, and the steam room would do with some work (cracked walls etc).
Overall I am happy with the treatment, not so much with the facilities. Might come back.
The salon has a nice buzz and if you like the young/cool environment that'd be something for you; I find that for the hair treatments I prefer much more a peaceful and soothing experience. The therapist was quick, or at least she seemed to be in a hurry, I was pushed around and whirled in my chair without any warnings, so must have been quick not to have my knees bumped into the wall.. I was asked if I'd like a drink, but never got any. The therapist kept talking above my head with others, and after all I wouldn't call it a relaxing experience..
The colours are ok-ish (I had had it better) , but I must admit she was good at the blow dry, and done exactly what I asked for.
Overall: I don't think I will come back, sorry.
