A week ago, I just had enough of everything that’s been going on with my life and realized that “hell yeah! I need a break”. Since it was the weekend that time, I booked myself for several treatments at Guerlain Alfardan Spa.
After having a hard time grabbing a cab and being stuck with the horrendous traffic, I arrived 20 minutes late for my appointment. Boy my agony didn’t stop there, all the elevators were occupied as I’ve reached the Al Fardan Tower and know the fact that I was going way up to the 39th floor.
Stepping in the spa, I was kind of blown away with the reception area that shouts pure luxury. The furnishings were opulent, add up the Guerlain products displayed around from the perfumes to cosmetics which you can take advantage of. Yes, you heard me right, free of use!
I was greeted by Connie, the receptionist. Glad that she fixed everything for me rather than cancelling some treatments, which I would totally understand if they did. I was introduced to Racquel, the therapist assigned to do my waxing who led me to another mini elevator going to the second floor.
Every guest has their own room. It has a treatment bed, bathroom and a dressing room that comes with essentials such as the disposable underwear, slippers, robe and towels. This was mine for that night:
As soon as I felt hairless, I was brought to their nail treatment section which basically looked like this:
How stunning is it? I was seated on one of those cubicles and I’m telling you, I felt like a queen on her throne. From my position, I had the view of the swimming pool and the skyscrapers of Doha. I could have stayed there all night! Not to forget how my nails were pampered by the jolly ladies, Syreeta and Gladys.
I was a bit hesitant to take photos of the spa since I was concerned about privacy so I took permission from Florana (Spa Manager) whom I did not meet but thank God for phones, I was able to talk to her. Upon approval, I decided to start looking around while I waited for my nails to dry.
I passed by curvy corridors designed with elegant artworks. Being meticulous, I admired how they maintained the cleanliness of the place. It was pristine.
I felt sad that my heavenly journey was almost ending that day. Along my way back to the room, I met Despinna who was responsible for my most awaited massage. I always liked my pressure hard and well I got what I wanted. She’s undeniably good with her craft.
Unluckily, I did not get the chance to use all of their facilities because there were lots that I had to do for myself and ended up a bit late. Everyone’s allowed to utilize them as long as you’re booked for an appointment or you’re a member of the Spa. Here are some of the amenities you can take pleasure in while you’re there:
I want to give credit to all of the mentioned names above for giving me a perfect night and for treating me well. Experiencing the Guerlain Alfardan Spa made me feel revitalized and nurtured. I highly recommend it if you want a moment of bliss. I did not regret splurging in this nirvana because it was all worth it. I headed out into a calm Doha evening, feeling way better than I have had in weeks.
And oh, they gave me a goodie bag! Thank you! 🙂
