The last couple of months have been quiet busy for me with a lot of never ending work. So when I went to the Resort World, Birmingham, I decided to pamper myself with a spa day. I had been longing to go for a spa to get relaxing beauty treatment for ages and hence the visit to Santai Spa at the Genting Hotel in Resorts World.Santai Spa is a luxury spa equipped with state of the art facilities to relax and rejuvenate your mind and soul. Apart from the traditional spa facilities like body massage, skin rejuvenation, hair removal, facial and more, they have their own ionized salt cave which can be accessed through the outdoor hot tub overlooking the Pendigo Lake. The other facilities at the spa also include a 15-metre pool, sauna, gym and an experience shower.
The interiors are serene with a lot of natural light coming in. They have tiled beds near the outdoor hot tub where you can enjoy the view of the lake. The spa has a very calming and soothing ambience. I had booked for a facial treatment and head massage. It was a complimentary service which I was offered by the hotel.At the reception, I was greeted warmly by the staff and offered a welcome drink with locker facility. Post the formalities I was taken to the changing room which was equipped with everything, from towels to shower gels. The changing room had it all. Brownie points for the place to be super clean. I really enjoyed the treatment.
But the best part is yet come, and that was the heated loungers, pool and the sauna. I thoroughly enjoyed this me time that I got. It was a much-needed break from the daily routine.
Santai Spa has a lot of packages to choose from, like, the taster package (£75), the de-stress package (£150), Tea and Time for Me package (£125) and so on. They even have group packages (£80pp) which is great if you are looking to de-stress and catch up on some gossip with your girl friends.
The Genting Hotel is situated in the outskirts of Birmingham, but the spa experience made me feel like I was away from the hustle-bustle of the city life and had come for a vacation somewhere far away. It was like I was in an entirely different place the moment I stepped into their facility. The staff was super attentive, polite and didn’t disturb you at all.
I am also planning to back again after the New Years eve to have a relaxing day at the spa before heading back to work with full energy in 2017. For me personally, the place is an oasis of calm in the first city life of Birmingham where you have a lovely Staycation without having to worry about airfare and mounting travel costs.
If you are someone who has a very busy schedule and wants to unwind then this is the place to be if for some reason you can’t go on a vacation.
