My boyfriend and I visited the Rafayel for a spa da including massage, facial and private couples bath. The spa is on the 3rd floor of the hotel and has relaxed thai/buddhist influenced decor; nothing kitch or overbearing; a peaceful ambience. The changeing rooms were clean an spacious with robes and slippers and essentail toiletries as you would expect. We enjoyed a lovely massage, facial and bath together in a roomy couples treatment room and then had full use of the spa, which is small but has everything you could want, and was not crowded on a Wednesday afternoon. The relaxation lounge is great, with plenty of sofas, and overlooks the river. All in all a very relaxing day, and my boyfriend was particularly impressed with his massage as the therapist was able to diagnose his shoulder problem almost instantly. The staff were all very welcoming and efficient and after we had enjoyed our treatments and champagne included in the package they rustled up additional refreshments for us in the form of cake and aloe vera juice free of charge (that may have been partly due to the BFs well honed persuasion skills!). We would both thoroughly recommend the spa and the package for a restful afternoon with a loved one.
I went of r a 90 minute massage on a mob deal. The venue didn't look at all promising from the outside. It's in the basement of a tatty looking tanning salon, and the overall space is rather cramped, although the treatment rooms themselves are pleasant, so if you're looking for a glamorous venue, this probably isn't for you. What is lacking in ambience was more than made up for in the quality of my massage. The therapist sat me down and gave me a foot bath whilst she discussed the treatment options and my particular aches and pains and stresses. I like a firm massage and she worked very well on my areas of tension for the full 90 minute, include some manipulation of my shoulders. She was very knowledgeable and skilled and followed up with some postural guidance and advice on helpful exercises after the massage. I felt really well looked after, and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wants a good, thorough massage.
