The first thing that strikes you about Quan Spa at JW Marriott Pune is how tastefully done up it is. And yes how spacious. Spread over 15,000 sq.ft, it is not only the biggest in Pune but also one of the biggest urban spas in Western India. Quan spa has 13 treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge, a foot lounge and huge spaces. Guests have an extensive choice between Western, Asian and Ayurvedic treatments done by a certified and varied team of spa therapists. The exclusive Foot Lounge comprising of 9 beds is the largest in Pune. Quan is a Chinese word that means ‘a source of pure water’ and the spa draws on the restorative properties of water to heal and rejuvenate.
All the treatments are recommended on the basis of an in depth consultation which helps to identify the dominant element be it space, air, water, fire or earth in a guest. Indulge – a Quan Signature Massage is highly recommended. In this therapy, a guest is given a full body massage with a moisturizing cream that contains brazil nut oil and Vitamin E oil. The cream regenerates, nourishes and protects the skin, leaving it smooth and nourished.
Anna Fernandes, Director of Spa, JW Marriott Pune adds, “Indulge is the only treatment wherein the massage pressure is provided as per the guest preference. If a guest requests for a medium pressure, the Swedish technique is used. If a guest requests for strong pressure then the Deep Tissue strokes are used by using the forearm and elbow. One can choose from 60 or 90 minutes duration.” Oil based massages require a shower post the therapy. Since cream is used in Indulge, you can even skip taking a shower. In fact, leaving the cream on which gets absorbed by the skin helps it work even after the therapy is done.
The products used at Quan are Oligo Dermi and Thalgo. The subtle orange mandarin essential aroma oil wafts in while you pamper your parched body, mind and soul with the signature therapy massage of Indulge. It’s the perfect antidote from the sweltering heat that saps your energy, mood and spirit.
