Last month (was it really just last month!) I revisited The Khyber in Gulmarg. The agenda of this trip was getting pampered at The Kyber Spa by L’occitane. I was mailed the spa menu beforehand and I picked up Angelica as the facial and Revitalizing Aromachologie Massage. My facial was scheduled on day 1 and the massage on day 2. I was invited for this trip.
To be honest I have had facials only twice in my life, once in Levi, Finland and then at The Khyber about which I am writing! So when the young lady attending to my facial told me that I had some dark circles under my eyes and my skin was slightly dehydrated, I didn’t know what to make out of it. In the next moment she added- other than that you have a good skin!
I had picked up Angelica as my facial originally, but I was suggested to go for Immortelle instead, as it better suited my needs. The facial was an intense affair of 75 minutes. The process used 9 different ingredients from eye balm, toner, cream mask and many more. No wonder I came out glowing from the room. The cost of this treatment is Rs 4000 plus taxes.
The next day I was sitting in the waiting area before the massage session. The heated swimming pool is right next to the spa. I managed to get a quick swim before coming for the Revitalizing Aromachologie Massage. I was asked to fill a few details about myself on day 1 itself, so they didn’t ask for it again. After the session they take your feedback on a tab!
I will let you into a secret. I pick up the massages which sound the most fragrant. I picked up Revitalizing Aromachologie Massage for the same reason. They use mint, pine and rosemary essential oils and I was so happy with my choice. They work on the left side of the body in this massage and then attend to the corresponding right side. The lady attending to me would ask me at frequent intervals about my comfort. I had a blissful one hour where the various aches and pains became a thing of the past! Overall, I got an excellent dose of pampering at The Khyber Spa by L’occitane.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
