If some couple- time is on your mind, get into the Khajuraho- inspired spa room called Moh. If it’s me- time that you’re looking for, then check into Maya, a chamber of elegant drapes and mirrors. Or simply get a foot massage sitting by a lotus pond in Isaya, where the ceiling gives you the feeling of unwinding under a starlit sky. Nirvana’s décor is tasteful and elegant and the menu is an extensive collection of aroma, Thai, Swedish, Deep tissue, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, massages. We highly recommend the MLD body massage, a manual lymphatic drainage therapy which claims to rid you toxins from the lymph nodes.
In this, the therapist only uses her elbows and the back of the hands, exerting pressure on the nodes. Combine it with the Fresh from the Pharmacy' skin treatment, a special vitamin C treatment for tired and dull skin and face the world in style as you step out. Another popular therapy is the cleopatra body polish especially for brides to be where you get to soak in a milk and honey bath after a massage. Ask for their face mapping and skin anaylsis before you choose your treatment INSIDER’S TIP Ask for a face treatment com- bined with Silver Slippers an interestingly named water- free pedicure. In this they only use gels and creams but don’t soak your feet in water to prevent water borne infections COST Rs 4,000 onwards AT Nirvana’s Skin and Body 1st floor, D Building, Hermes Vishal, Lane 7, Koregaon Park.
