We were so excited to visit the two months old newly opened Raffles Hotel Spa Jakarta. We fell in love in our first sight, the Spa was magnificent, inside and out! Not only the interior and facilities were great, but also their service was amazing! So, let us, Milaxo, tell you our experience at Raffles Hotel Spa Jakarta.
We would like to try treatment that we haven’t tried before and something unique would be nice. We were suggested that we have to try Tibetan Vibration Relaxation Massage and we agreed to their suggestion. As a new customer, the therapist gave us a tour around the Spa and we were so amazed and cannot wait much longer to try their treatment! Then she led us to the Female changing room so we could change to our bathrobe and slippers. We don’t need to worry, the locker were highly secured. While changing, the therapist gave us a jamu welcome drink and a cold towel for us to freshen up.
Then we enter outside and sat in the waiting room to fill in our wellbeing form. After that, we we’re escorted to our treatment room, Signature Suite, which is the biggest treatment room in Raffles Hotel Spa Jakarta. Signature Suite was equipped with spacious bathroom, which has sink, bathtub, toilet and shower. There were two-massage bed, and two chairs for the footbath ritual. The room has an amazing view too. You can choose whether you want to close the drapes or not. It’s better to close it since we can se a little bit of the view with the drapes closed.
Moving on to our main treatment, Tibetan Vibration Relaxation Massage. The treatment started with a footbath and twenty minutes of relaxing back massage to decrease tension in our body.
Next, we enter the uniqueness of Tibetan Vibration Relaxation. This treatment is perfect for you who have trouble sleeping or having insomnia, because Tibetan Vibration Relaxation Massage will reconnect our body and mind through sound vibrations. So if we focused on the sound of the Tibetan bowls and feel the vibration, we will fall into a deep sleep in no time. When we woke up, we feel relaxed, reenergized and calm.
By using an ancient Tibetan technique, the bowls are activated by touch and it produces harmonics of different intensities. The bowls were placed on our body in different areas to encourage the cells to return to its natural state. Thus, this technique is best for blood circulation.
Three kind of Tibetan singing bowl are used by Raffles Hotel Spa Jakarta, there are; Base bowl (biggest), Universal bowl (medium) and Heart bowl. To hit the bowl, therapist used a special stick and they are skillful while hitting the bowl. Also they have to be focused and relaxed so they can transfer positive energy to us.
Our 60 minutes of Tibetan Vibration Relaxation Massage were over but there are still some exciting Raffles Spa facilities that we could enjoy.
Inside the female changing room, there was a room equipped with unique facilities that can only be found in Raffles Spa. The first step is, we entered the steam room to open our pores, after that, hydrating our self with Raffles Spa infused water. The second step, cooling off our body with Raffles Spa ice fountain by coating the ice to our body to neutralize and close back our pores. The third one was, very unique rainforest experience shower. Three options of shower are available. There are Caribbean Storm, Cold Mist, Caribbean Monsoon and we could feel that we were taking a shower in the jungle. This was a great sound treatment with the sound of real jungle (such as birds, thunder, rains).
After trying different types of nature shower, we relaxed our self in Raffles Hotel Spa Jakarta heater lounger while sipping ginger tea. It was warm and good for blood circulation.
Overall, it was a great journey and experience at Raffles Hotel Spa Kuningan Jakarta. The treatments, service, ambience and facilities are top – notch! We can’t wait to make our next visit and try their other exciting treatments.
