We went today to the Men Time spa in Almuhallab mall, Me, Mishary and my 2 cousins. We booked an appointment for 4 people almost a week ahead. The spa is much smaller than the spa I reviewed last week (The Day Spa) and a step down in almost every way.
The reception area was ok. I would’ve liked it had I not been to The Day Spa first. We were greeted with a cup of herbal tea and a little warm towel. We had to fill a form coz it was our first time there, and it took some time to complete. We were led to the locker room soon afterwards. The locker room is a little area that leads to 3 other rooms; a toilet, a shower and a changing room. Since there was no way we could all go in at once to change, they had to let 2 of us go in first and then the other 2. I did not appreciate the lack of privacy.
Every one of us was then taken to his own massage room. The rooms are tiny. There is barely enough space for the masseur to move around, and even that was a struggle in some cases. The room is dimly lit with calming music being played in the background. We all took a 1 hour of ‘Medium pressure Massage’. 3 things annoyed me: 1- The hole in the massage table where my face is supposed to rest was small. My chin and my forehead suffered great deal of pressure the whole time I was facing down. 2- The massage table was small. 3- The room was small too.
When my hour was up, I wore the robe and went to the relaxing area. It is a small room with 5 sofas. They let you sit and relax after the massage and bring you some peeled apples and herbal tea. I enjoyed this part coz I liked being able to sit and relax while I regain my composure, and not to be rushed out of there immediately. It was also nice coz all 4 of us got a chance to sit, relaxed, and chat for awhile. But then again, I would’ve hated it if I were there alone and had to sit with people I don’t know.
^this room looked much better but the camera’s flash killed the picture.
After that we were led back to the locker room where we changed and headed out to pay the bill. Mine was KD22 for the 1 hour massage.
in conclusion, I liked the massaging part and enjoyed the post-massage relaxing area very much, however, the tiny spaces and the lack of privacy was a bit disappointing. The Day Spa remains the best spa I’ve tried in Kuwait so far.
The Men Time spa is located in Hawally, Almuhallab, 1sr floor.
