I’ve been hearing about this spa for a long time from friends, and as I was telling my friends this weekend that I needed a massage and that I probably will go to The Day Spa, which is my favorite massage place in all O the land, my friend Ban1 told me, for the 10th time, that I should consider going to the one in crown plaza hotel. He said that it is the best place in Kuwait. So, as a massage fan and more importantly as a blogger looking for good material for you readers, I went to Aquatonic Spa and took my camera with me.
The place is newly built, as in not as old as the hotel itself. From the moment I stepped in (after being scanned by the security and his beeping device) I felt that this place is going to be special. The entrance was a very nice introduction to the whole experience. Water falls, a small lake with wooden and the whole thing was very nicely done.

The interiors were exquisite. The marbles and the designs kinda reminded me of the lavish decorations of Dubai’s hotels, you know the ones that made you go “I live in a dump.” Well, long story short, the place looked very nice from the inside and out. We were alos give a tour to see the rest of the Spa’s facilites and they were all luxurious. The pool was the highlight of the place. Click this LINK to learn more about it.

Down to business. The massage room and the massage itself.:
The massage room was fancy, not too big, but not too small either, just the right size. Comes in the room: a sink, a bathroom (with the most amazing shower I’ve ever tried!) a closet and a safe for your valuables. Considering that I highly appreciate privacy this place gets a 9/10 (coz the masseur knocked more than once while I was taking pictures. I had come up with excuses)
The massage was done by an indonesian masseur. He was GOOD. The massage lasted an hour and it was one of the best massages I’ve tried. He used hot towels in the process and the massage bed had this steaming thing going on underneath where the bed gets warm (the temperature is set to your liking) it was a nice addition.
All in all, the massage at this place is highly recommended. It is a bit expensive though, it’s KD 26 an hour (compared to KD 18 at The Day Spa). But hey if you want to spoil yourself every once in a while, this is the place to go. For more information check the hotel’s WEBSITE.
Thanks Ban1 for telling me about this place.
