Rejuvenate, Relax is the word I seem to stress more in my instastories and snapchat lately. As you may already know by now – I love a grandeur facial or a lovely spa day. It’s a way to my heart always since it’s the best way for me to unwind and relax. And last week I was lucky enough to be invited down to the Crowne Plaza in Crowne Fitness to try out their signature treatment and receive a facial. And I have to say it was probably the most relaxing Monday I’ve had in a long time, which left me all refreshed and ready for Ramadan period.
The awarding winning hotel – Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi – is located on Hamdan Street and the Crowne Fitness is located on 28th floor. I was all set for the perfect way to spend a few hours when you need to unwind and relax.
Since I was pre-booked for my facial day here via ever smiling Marina, I didn’t have to wait much. Upon greeting, they asked me if what would I prefer to drink and got me this chilled iced tea in my treatment room which was on the different floor. My therapist (Emi) came to welcome me and take me to the treatment room. I enjoyed sipping on my iced tea before having the facial treatment.
Like most city spa’s it’s not the biggest of spas, but it does feel incredibly spacious & bright (luxurious, Nah! guess they are not aiming for making it too fancy but rather more relaxing for clients, which I highly appreciate). The essence of this experience is the treatment itself, there are no time-consuming chores involved likes setting up the passkey for lockers, pre foot cleansing, etc. Crowne Fitness has four massage treatment rooms providing a broad range of massage treatments and body scrubs. Inside the treatment room Tulip, you have a relaxing chair and table, walk in shower with a convenient and comfortable bed, which was a relief pretty much everything you would expect from a treatment room.
Washrooms are not inside the room however it’s just next door. The facial though was one of the best I’d had. It was relaxing; the therapist picked products from the wide range of New Zealand brand “Living Nature” which is based on plant extracts. As she mentioned, those products are going to target specific skins concerns that I shared with her, and she gave me the most amazing arms and foot massage while she was waiting for the face mask to dry.
My therapist Emi was attentive, friendly & helpful. My Purifying Facial (to create balance and healing for problem skin) and Balancing Facial (to reduce the signs of aging) combination was fantastic. She did emphasize and gave attention to trouble areas like acne and uneven skin tone. My favorite part was when she applied the honey mask which I could just literally lick off from my face. It was ideal for skin tightening too, blackheads extraction left my skin all red. However masks did subside that too, and I must tell you about the glow and brightness I noticed in my skin from the very next day. Thanks to Ms. Milc, I am glad to discover this little gem of a place exists in the Crowne Plaza but with a lovely group of therapists. So accommodating.
All in all the facial treatment experience at Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi’s was everything I wanted from it and more. I left feeling refreshed & thoroughly enjoyed the treatment from start to finish. I came out from there relaxed but also energized to face the fasting week ahead. Also, she gave me a mini foot & shoulder massage which was the most sensational teaser of what I can expect in my next booking for massage. I am so looking forward and can’t recommend this place highly enough. Keep up the good work guys, it’s my new favorite place to Spa & Facial. I will book to go back soon as a range of Massages, Rituals, Body Exfoliations and Spa Packages are available
