I have been to Pasha several times and always grab the offers when they come up.
I took a friend for whom it was a new experience and we loved it.
We had tea (coffee for my friend although she tried my tea and loved that too) in Reception before being taken through to the hammam.
We had opted for a foam massage (£25) each, which the therapist did after we'd been in the bath for about half an hour, having done the mud face mask treatment, and our own exfoliating, etc.
The massages were fabulous and the therapist really lovely.
Afterwards we went through to the restaurant for a selection of mezze, all delicious.
My friend had a glass, well two, of the house wine and I drank Aryan, a salt yoghurt drink that I love.
After the meal we were each given a free voucher for another hour in the hammam so I gave mine to my friend so she could treat someone else another time.
As we left, my friend collected a little pin at the front desk, 'to ward off the evil eye'.
Overall, it was great and my friend said 'Loved it!'.

Wasn't able to go as the event was oversubscribed. They were to let me know when there was another event before Christmas but I didn't hear anything. Maybe there'll be other events in the New Year.

This was my second visit, as the admin arrangements for my first visit were a bit botched, so they gave me a second chance for free!
It was excellent.
The member of staff, Eloise?, was so attentive, explaining things in detail, such as finding my way around as the place a bit of a labyrinth.
I arrived in good time, good to be there early, and got changed and read a magazine in Reception.
Then was taken for my treatment, which was divine!
After a shower and change back into my swimsuit,
went back to Reception and I was taken down to the wet spa facilities and pool,
and it was all explained to me.
I found the salt therapy and steam rooms too hot,
however, sat for a good ten minutes in the Aroma room.
I got up to check the time as the person taking me down there suggested only staying in any one room for ten minutes.
Couldn't quite see the big clock from the room.
I wonder if a clock in the rooms might be a possibility.
Anyway, then went along and sat on one of the heated bed/chairs to reach another magazine,
and floated out of the place totally chilled out.
I loved it.
(I would have had an eyebrow wax if there'd been a special deal;
however, at £15 decided I'd have to wait for another opportunity with Wahanda.)

This was fabulous. I found the male receptionist a bit shy, and having to walk through reception at street level in my bathrobe to go downstairs for the sauna and shower a bit strange. Suggested that they use only SLS-free soaps as they can make my skin itch and not natural. The downstairs facilities were excellent. Not sure what the body wrap achieved but it was fine. Otherwise, everything was fantastic. My therapist, Anni was completely wonderful. The sauna was super too, whereas I don't usually care for them. Perhaps it was the infra-red heat that made it a much better experience. I loved the body brushing and may get my own brush. The massage was perfect. Just a great experience all round. Oh, and they let me take home the flip flop slippers, which I love. I wish the manager and Anni all the best in the world.

The whole experience was wonderful!
The venue is much larger than it appears outside.
The reception area is charming and 'quirky'.
I used the loo (more soap and hand cream needed in the dispensers),
right at the back.
Everywhere was spotlessly clean.
Marissa took me through and I felt very comfortable with her.
Very friendly and professional at the same time.
We chatted and she also told me throughout the treatment what was happening,
and I felt very safe in her hands.
The full body exfoliation (with sugar and oils) was excellent,
with just the right amount of pressure.
Then I was left to have a shower,
then Marissa came to take me through to the tanning room.
For a second I realised that I was naked, except for a disposable towel,
and visible from reception and the street.
Perhaps a stable door or something to spare my maidenly blushes?
I've had a spray tan once before and now realise that wasn't a great experience,
whereas this was fantastic!
Marissa carefully sprayed me with a hand sprayer,
and the result is flawless.
I'm a fan and will look out for other offers to repeat the experience!

Away from the hustle and bustle of the road and the arcade, the venue was small but adequate. I was greeted warmly and offered an iPad or magazine. I quickly relaxed and Billy gave my feet a very thorough pedicure, getting rid of all my hard skin. I floated out of there!

The venue is quite a long walk from the station and I couldn't easily figure out where I was supposed to enter the Club. It was through a gate in a hedge. Then I waited at Reception, new staff, not knowing the ropes. They had my appointment down as 1.45pm instead of 2pm but I figured they had their own reasons for that. The Club reception staff directed me to the Amida Spa. I generally found myself getting lost in the place. Then my therapist rushed me through filling in a form, explaining that I was late, should have been there at 1.45 and the time would be deducted from my appointment. It was a fabulous exfoliation treatment though, and I was left to have a shower. Then someone led me down and showed me around the water spa facilities. Didn't have a swimsuit, so spent my time in the Aroma steam room, very pleasant. After I got back, I contacted the Spa to complain about the confusion and they have given me another appointment for free, so I'll try that out and hope for a more relaxing experience. I came away with towelling slippers that I was to otherwise throw in the bin. Am wearing them now! How the other half live, eh?

I was very happy with my experience.
I pressed the bell and was buzzed in.
Once inside, there were two doors and I wasn't sure which one I should go through.
Perhaps a sign on that inner door.
Two ladies at Reception, both seemed very efficient.
At the last minute I'd booked an eye brow threading for the first time ever,
because they didn't do waxing.
I hate tweezers and this felt a bit similar, but all in one go.
At least I've tried it now, but will stick with waxing.
Anyway, the facial was excellent, Magda brilliant.
I'm surprised to see the negative feedback as I thought the place was lovely,
especially the treatment room.

Sheer bliss! Starting from the staff in reception, the whole experience was a delight. I arrived early so went for a walk around the block (to see how the other half live!) then used the toilets on the ground floor. The whole place is luxurious and very 'Knightsbridge'. Then up in the lift to the mezzanine floor when Monique greeted me. Very friendly and approachable. First she did the back massage. Parts of my back were quite 'tight' but with Monique's massage I could feel the stress ripple away. Then the facial, which was excellent. I could smell the strawberries! Monique gave my open pores a thorough work over and my skin looks fabulous now! Also included were arm massages while the mask was working. A colleague is developing a range of products and I look forward to hearing about those when they are available. A truly wonderful experience and I'd love to go back if more deals are available. Thank you Monique and Wahanda!
