Le Spa by Jan, a familiar name in the spa scene since 2014, has recently moved into the entire 2nd floor of 11 Stanley Street from Sheung Wan, and is ready to conquer Central with their exceptional products and services.
Let me tell you what is so exceptional about it. A friend of mine booked the ‘SERENITY RITUAL’ from MindBeauty app and gave it to me as a gift. When she told me I was going on a 3-hour ‘ritual’, I was intrigued and nervous by this unusual name. A ‘ritual’? Sounds like something related to magic or religion? Not been to the spa and not knowing what to expect I was, however, jet-lagged from a long trip, I went with an open heart in a tired body to get ‘ritual-ed’ up.
When I first walked out of the elevator, the friendly staffs were there to greet me warmly. I was stunned by the hotel design alike look of the spa. I was led to be seated on the sofa, being served with a cup of delicious tea and slipping my feet into the spa slippers. Every little detail was wonderfully done at Le Spa by Jan. The high ceiling, the elegant black and grey décor, the soothing music, and the beautiful aroma, were bliss to all my senses. My therapist that day was Annie, who is an experienced beauty therapist that spent years in renowned 5-star hotel spas, and knows the best on making the guest feels like home, well, a luxurious home, asked me some questions to get to know me and introduced the treatments I was going to have.
‘SERENITY RITUAL’ includes a 45-min whole body scrub, 60-min deep tissue massage, and a 75-min deep cleansing hydration facial. From the chat I had with Annie, I found out that all the treatments in the spa are non-invasive and non-medical, and are supported by the use of leading French ocean cosmetics brand Thalgo which extracts their fine ingredients from 5 islands in Polynesia, quality, exotic with a delicate French touch.
Annie took me into one of the spacious, tasteful treatment rooms; each of them is equipped with a modern shower, closet, dressing table, and a comfortable bed. We began the treatment with the gentle body scrubbing using Bora Bora sand, sea salt, and coconut shell on my skin. After that, I went for a shower without soap, so I could wash the particles off me while keeping the Monoi and jojoba oils on. A new set of sheets were being changed; here came the body massage with organic oil with the perfect smooth and firm strokes that were truly effective and enjoyable. Last but not least, it was the much-looking-forward-to facial treatment that left my skin youthful and bright. I particularly loved the massage done on my face, neck, and shoulders. For someone like me who sits in front of the computer all day long and using my phone a lot for work, that helped relieve tension off my head. I lost track on how much time has passed. I was snoozing on and off and did not remember the last time I felt so relaxed.
I was grateful that the products used were premium and thoughtfully selected, Annie, was forthcoming, professional, and offer great advice on body care. As a customer, I felt special, appreciated, and cared for. When it comes to serenity, there is no amount of yoga or meditation works like a world-class spa treatment, sometimes you need to let others do the magic for you!
Le Spa by Jan also offers ‘UTOPIA’ RITUAL.’ and ‘BLISS’ RITUAL’, both include a full whole body scrub, different kinds of massage and facials depending on your need.
I left the spa fully recharged and my richly nourished skin was radiating from head to toe, smelling as great as the sea breeze in the heart of Polynesian islands. I could not believe what I have experienced in the last 3 hours in this busy, noisy city center and hot humid weather, was that just a lovely dream?
Now I am booked with this spa and the rituals, luckily as a user of MindBeauty app, I could get my fix quickly with a few clicks away.
