I was recommended this Spa by Ansam, and since I’m making it my duty to find the best massage place in Kuwait, I went.
The place isn’t hard to find at all, it’s in Salmiya, gulf road, the right after Divas restaurant then the third building on the left. It’s a men’s Salon & Spa, haven’t tried one of those before. It isn’t big, the salon is upfront and the spa is in the back, however it is very nicely designed with a modern feel. The people working there and the reception was very nice and warm. Even when I asked about the possiblity of taking pictures they were all smiles and approved immediately (this isn’t the case most of the times with spas).
I chose the deep tissue massage, my friends went with swedish massage and the other just the foot massage (they had only 2 rooms for massages so 3 people for full body’s wasn’t possible).
As I said the place is nicely set, and the rooms were very good. enough space and a shower in the room is all I hoped for.
Now, down to business, The changing room was located near the massage room, which is a thing I don’t appreciate. We should be able to change in the room itself, just like the day spa and acuatonic spa. The massage room had a slidding glass door, not very sound proof, so I ended up not enjoying the massage much because of all the noises I could hear going on outside, especially when you’re in a relaxed state, your ear gets extra sensitive and could catch everything. Not having music on most of the hour also contributed to the lack of privacy in the place; could hear everything going out.
The massage itself wasn’t so good. The guy was nice and very attentive, and I hate saying bad things about him, but the thing is, I was waiting impatiently for my 1 hour to finish. It was boring and a tease. It felt like I was being teased most of the time. Like he was about to begin digging deep, but then moves on to another part of my body.
The privacy (yes it is one of the most important things I look for in massage places) was totally and utterly breached when the masseur entered the room while I was taking a shower. The doors of the showers were smoked so he can’t possibly see me, not that he looked my way to begin with, but the idea of having this guy enter the room while I’m showering, is not acceptable.
Same thing with my friends, both their massages weren’t as good as we’ve hoped for.
The full body massage costs KD20 and the foot massage costs KD10.
