Experiential Sawadhee Traditional Thai Spa, Delhi | Review

Hey lovelies!
Wishing you all a very Happy Republic Day. Hope our country sees a lot of success and joy in the coming years :)

I was home this weekend and gearing up to go back to Delhi tomorrow. A short vacation like this every few months really helps me relax and have a good time as I enjoy all the delicacies cooked by my Mom. And you know what else makes me relax and rejuvenate? A great spa session!

Last week I had a similar refreshing experience at SAWADHEE Traditional Thai Spa in Vasant Kunj, Delhi. The first thing that makes SAWADHEE unique and different from all other spas in town is that it offers traditional Thai spa rituals that are offered nowhere else and have an authentic feel.

One look at their website and the rituals offered, and you can know that they offer a wide range of treatments that would fit your requirements. But make sure you call them and check about the treatment you would like to avail beforehand, as a couple of treatments which I wanted to go for (like the Thai Herbal wrap) initially weren't available at this time.

Anyway, I decided to visit Sawadhee Spa and choose a therapy upon consultation with the manager there. The spa is a little difficult to locate if you are new to that area, but if you follow the Google Maps - you would easily find the location.
Now, the spa is spread across more than 5000 sq. ft of luxurious space with subtle tones and textures that gracefully embrace one and the warmth of the décor really helps set the mood for an amazing journey ahead. They have 7 private spa suites and 2 couple spa suites with Jacuzzi that are beautifully done.

They have also been winners of Asia Spa awards
Upon consultation with the Spa manager, I decided to go for a Deep Tissue Massage, Body Scrub and Honey & Milk bath for a relaxing session to let go the work stress.
The best part about the spa is that the oils and scrubs are made in-house, and they had 4-5 different scrubs available which you can choose for your therapy. I decided to go for a Chocolate scrub which has the properties to make skin smooth and tan-free.


They have various single and couple spa rooms available which are very spacious and have a Steam room attached. My spa was done in a couple room which also has a Jacuzzi and beautiful interiors.
My therapist handed me over a pair of disposable lingerie and gave me sometime to change in the room. Upon changing into a bathrobe, the therapist started my spa session by giving me a soothing foot bath.

The therapist started the 60minute Deep Tissue massage session which is a muscle relaxation therapy focusing on deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is helpful for chronic tensions in areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness and sore shoulders. The strokes are used as classic massage therapy, with slower movements and deeper pressure concentrating on areas of tension and pain.
After a stressful week at work, this massage was all I needed to rejuvenate and remove all the stress from my body and mind.

Then, the therapist started with the Choco Delight scrub which is a 45minute session that helps remove dead skin cells and fights free radical damage.  The rich chocolate used has antioxidant properties which also helps make skin smooth, soft and glowing, and provides a purely enticing chocolate spa experience.

Jacuzzi in the Couple spa room
After both the oil massage and body scrub, I had a steam bath for 10 minutes while the therapist prepared my Honey & Milk purifying bath. The 30minute bath in the Jacuzzi (with a perfect ambiance all set with candles and dim lighting) was the most exciting and delightful part of my session, as it helped me soak the aroma of the real rose petals while the lactic acid helped soften my skin.


After the 3 treatments, I had a shower and was welcomed by a herbal tea which served as a perfect end of my experience. The rooms also have basic toiletries and hair dryers that help you get ready before you step out of the spa.

Foot Reflexology room
Overall, in the beginning when I was told that a couple of therapies weren't available - I was left a little disappointed and skeptical about if the further experience would be any good. But I must say my views changed after the entire 3 hours I spent at the spa.

If you are looking to rewind and rejuvenate with an authentic Thai feel and experience, you must pay a visit to Sawadhee Traditional Thai Spa, Delhi which offers extraordinary spa treatments with a 5-star feel that will surely relax your body and soul.
