When I was a teenager, I would accompany Maa to her parlour visits and wait on the couch. Maa would get her haircut and pedicure done, while I would curiously browse through those fancy magazines on the side table. That was my first tête-à-tête with ELLE Magazines. Then they went on to launch their chain of Spa and Salon, and Kolkata finally got its first Elle Spa and Salon in Altair, Sector 5, Salt Lake. Located on the 20th Floor of the Altair Boutique Hotel in Kolkata, I was invited by Elle Spa and Salon to host a Spa Party for my friends, so that we could try out their services. I threw an open invite on Instagram and Facebook, and few of my friends happily agreed to experience their salon services.
On reaching Altair Hotel, the elevator leads you to the 19th floor. Thereafter, you need to take the stairs to the 20th floor, where Elle Spa and Salon is located. The lobby has a huge collection of posters and cameras used in Indian Movies. This was one of the highlights of the decor.
The reception is tastefully done, with a comfortable seating area, where you could while away your time with Elle magazines. Firstly, you need to select the services that you would be opting for, and the staff readily helps you select one according to your skin and hair type. Herbal tea, cookies, wet towels and drinking water are also offered as a part of refreshment.
The area is demarcated into two parts – one for the Salon Services and another for the Spa Services.
The Salon area has designated pedicure stations, and the plush chair makes the experience absolutely royal. A friend of mine, who came for the spa party, opted for full face threading, and she was thoroughly satisfied with the salon experience. The staff took great care of every detail to give her a satisfactory experience.
The Spa area, on the other hand, has separate therapy rooms with shower cubicles. As soon as you enter the room, the dim lights welcome you with a whiff of aromatic essential oils in a diffuser. The ambience altogether transforms you into a different world, where you can let go yourself, and experience their services. I tried their foot massage, which turned out to be a great experience. The name of my therapist was Jolly, and she was very well-trained and a thorough professional. I felt very comfortable during the entire session, and the foot massage left me with happy rejuvenated feet! Few of my friends also opted for a head, neck, shoulder massage, and they too were very happy with the quality of the services.
I am definitely going back for trying their salon services, specially a signature pedicure, which I have been eyeing for long!
The prices for the services are definitely on the higher side, but the quality and ambience is exactly what makes it totally worth it! You get premium quality services with luxurious products at the given price, so what more can you ask for?
However, I am giving away two vouchers for my loved ones in Kolkata. You can use these vouchers to get a flat Rs.1,000/- off on services above Rs.2,000/- plus a complimentary manicure or pedicure. Now how cool is that?
To win one of such vouchers (or both in case you are lucky), all you need to is-
