The spa at the Intercontinental has a chic urban boudoir feel - or so they claim. As soon as you walk in, you're transported to another place entirely with the staff all trying their best to make and keep you as relaxed as possible. The mood is a little sombre as it's rather dark yet their motto is to let you recharge, detox or relax as you feel necessary.
We had booked a steam temple package so when we arrived we were presented with fruit juices and a fruit platter - which makes you feel like you are starting to detox instantly. In the 'steam temple' itself you have everything you could need to get prepared, take off your make-up, put away your things and prep yourself. The spa therapists ensure that there is candlelight to help you unwind whilst the twinkling starlights set into the domed roof also have a calming effect. Although I'm not so sure that it's really a continental spa but from more further afield!
Working on every therapeutic level, so they say, you apply mineral-rich mud all over the body and special mask for the face, whilst the aromatic steam infuses the temple and grows hotter. Apparently the treatment is ideal to prime the mind, skin and body prior to receiving other therapies. All the while in the temple, there is either birdsong or music, adding to the atmosphere and bringing one back to nature. Once you've sat back in the reclining chairs for a good 40 minutes, a shower of water cascades down to rinse of all the mud before you fully shower and clean yourself up.
Then after all the hard work detoxing your skin, the deal we had booked included a refreshing glass of champagne to help keep those toxin levels up! My kind of spa!
