You know you’re having a difficult week when you’re eagerly awaiting a massage appointment at the end of it. This was me last week, when the only thing that kept me going through meetings and presentations was the upcoming Swedish Massage date at The White Room Beauty and Spa at Marina Plaza. Read on to know how it went.
On arriving at The White Room, I was escorted straight to the massage room and offered some infused water. On my way I observed how pristine and spotless its interiors are. True to its name, everything from the interiors to the staff’s uniforms at The White Room is pure white.
My therapist for the day was Ms. Manju – a masseuse with over 6 years of experience back in Nepal and in Dubai. I’d recommend her to anybody wishing to try a massage at The White Room at Marina Plaza. She is thoroughly professional, happy to answer your questions, and makes sure that you’re absolutely comfortable throughout the massage.
The massage room is a comfortable and clean space, and relaxing music with sounds of gushing waves plays in the background. Aromatic oils and scented candles too help in setting the tone for what’s to follow.
Manju ensures to check your comfort level with regards to massage pressure. I opted for the hard option, however if you’re new to massages, consider keeping the pressure to mild. Else, you may suffer from stiffness later in the day or the next.
The Swedish Massage (AED 230) at The White Room begins with thoroughly pressing each of your legs, followed by some twisting to loosen tight muscles. This is followed by a back rub, graduating towards the arms and then the front body massage – again, starting upwards from the feet. The Swedish Massage ends with a neck and head massage.
The entire process lasts for about 60 minutes and though you feel lighter and extremely relaxed by then, you only wish it went on for a tad bit longer. I’m not complaining about the service, its just that the Swedish Massage was so good, I didn’t want it to end.
They say: “You know how good it is by how fast it goes”. This pretty much sums up my Swedish Massage at The White Room Beauty and Spa. An hour long rigorous massage coupled with relaxing music definitely eased the stress worth days of meetings and deadlines. I could have easily drifted off into a sweet slumber.
The staff is polite and the interiors – clean and comfortable. The White Room branch at Marina Plaza, is next to Marina mall which is a popular landmark and easily accessible via Public transport.
Friendliness of staff: 8/10
Variety of services: 9/10
Quality of services: 9/10
Would I visit again?
I’d surely keep coming back for the Swedish massage, and probably try some others too. I’ve heard that their express blow-dry offers a lot of bang for the buck at AED 65, and is a must-try.
