A spa moment at a resort hotel has always been an experience that I would look forward to. So naturally, I was extremely excited when MakanLuar invited me to join their Bandung travel and culinary trip, that gave me the opportunity to stay at Sheraton Hotel and enjoy its facilities and amenities. Some of us including me decided to spend some spa time in the evening before tucking into their cozy bedrooms.

Located just behind Feast Restaurant and beside the hotel gym, Shine Spa was perched quite secludedly within the hotel. It was not hard to find though. Arriving just in time for my spa appointment, I went in and waited a few minutes while they prepared for the treatments. The spa offers various treatments such as massages, body treatments, facial and hands-feet treatments. I immediately chose a 1-hour traditional massage (IDR 250K before tax and service) to unwind my body, mind and soul from the franticness of every day life.

The interior was a combination of contemporary and nature creating a refreshing yet modern ambience.

They also sell several spa and aromatherapy products at the spa lobby. Below are some of the products that I found quite interesting.

Finally, I was ushered by the therapist to the room. On the way there, I took some pictures of the decorative elements that I found to be soothing to my artistic minds.

The level of their services in terms of the treatments area and detail elements definitely met my expectation. The price was a bit steep compared to regular spa’s obviously, however it was still considered affordable and well worth it.  Before the treatment started, I changed myself into a robe and had my feet washed in that natural looking basins. The massage was great with special compliments to the therapist for hitting all the right spots especially on my shoulder that brought me back to my calm and happy state of mind. It worked like magic.

It was definitely too soon to end because of how good it was. At the end of the session, they served a cup of ginger tea with some snack condiments. They also provide bottled water for the guests just in case they became thirsty during the treatments. I would honestly grade it as one of my top spa experience so far. If you stay at Sheraton Hotel during your vacation to Bandung, you might want to consider to spare some me time in the spa and have them pamper you with their excellent services.
