zIQUE Salon now has a spa and it is serving mojitos, pina coladas and wine. Not in glasses, of course, but as soaks, scrubs and creams for your hands and feet. The two-week-old spa claims their cocktail-themed manicures and pedicures are fun and effective. “We use signature treatments from Mumbai-based Anita’s Aromatics, which supplies to the top five-star hotels in the city. The treatments are luxurious, ?ght ageing and calms the skin,” says Devikala Gopalakrishnan, the owner. They also have four spa rooms, where you can get a Thai reflexology massage, a deep-tissue Swedish massage and the new candle massage. “The candle, which is made with essential oils, is melted and the wax is used for the massage. This helps the oils to penetrate deep into the skin,” says Gopalakrishnan, adding that the rooms are themed around rose, cedar wood, lemongrass and lavender. “The diffusers, oils (a mix of Auroville’s Maroma brand and Anita’s Aromatics), creams and bath products will all echo the theme.” You can also enjoy body wraps and scrubs, which are customised to each client’s requirements.
Manicures from Rs.650 and massages from Rs.1,700.
