How often does it happen that we take a well-deserved break from work to simply relax? When was the last time you spent some quality time to unwind? I did this recently, while visiting Berlin, and could not have found a more perfect place than the Guerlain Spa.
It is located in Berlin’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel and offers such exquisite therapies that you are bound to feel rejuvenated and relaxed to the core.
I was in awe of the beautiful architecture of this spa. They have purposefully made it spacious (1000 sq) with soft lighting, so you feel peaceful the moment you enter. They have an indoor pool shaped like a cloud, a sauna, a Jacuzzi, and a steam room. They have spread the multiple therapies they offer over 8 rooms. The therapies include hydrotherapy, facials, body treatments, massages, and couple treatments, just to name a few. All products used are on the 200-year old original Guerlain cosmetic brand to give you only the best and luxurious treatment.
I had opted for a facial, because first, men seldom get it done, so I wanted to see how it felt. Second, I kept hearing from my friends over and over how I looked ‘rugged’, but not handsome, due to the work stress and sleep deprivation.
First, I had to choose a Guerlain fragrance from amongst the three top notch perfumes. All the products that will be used throughout your facial will be based on this fragrance only. I chose L’Homme Ideal, as it was my perfume already. You are then taken to a large, personal luxury cloakroom that has all the incredible amenities you can imagine: a personal luxury rain shower, make up desk, set of Guerlain products, air dryer, and air styling tools, large mirror, and luxury peignoir.
The therapist later takes you to the Guerlain footbath to massage your feet with Guerlain foot beauty products. I did not know that a simple foot massage could relieve so much of my physical tension until I got this done. It was like being in a foot-massage heaven, if there has ever been such a thing!
Finally, you are brought to the large, luxury treatment room. This is where all the facial rituals are carried out. I had chosen the anti-aging treatment, which combines firming massage with the highly-effective Orchidée Impériale products, to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin with a natural glowing effect. The result: I felt like a completely new man with skin that was younger beyond my years.
There is also a Guerlain boutique that offers signature products for purchase, so you may enjoy the spa experience at home too!
While I only opted for the facial treatments, you can as many services as you want, each more relaxing and enjoyable than the other. You can even choose these treatments to go on as long as 24 hours! To all of you traveling or planning to travel, I would highly recommend you visit Berlin and enjoy a day at this spa. If there ever was the perfect place to unravel, enjoy mental and physical peace, and leave with healthier skin and soul, then it is the Guerlain Spa at the wonderful Waldorf Astoria Hotel!
