Head to Sandal Suites, Operated by Lemon Tree Hotels for a luxurious stay

The spa at the Sandal Suites Operated by Lemon Tree Hotels is spanking new. It wasn't there when I visited it for its launch last time. So it was sheer bliss when I got to experience the brand new spa during my recent staycation there. Just as a cursory introduction the all suite luxury apartments, Sandal Suites, Operated by the Lemon Tree Hotels has only suites as suggested by the name. They all come with fantastic views, surprisingly facing vast stretches of farmlands with greenery in the middle of Noida! That’s something really precious.

My deluxe suite interconnected to a studio suite which gave me two bedrooms with a living room in the middle and a petite fully equipped pantry.  All the three rooms had fantastic view. The centre tables, corner tables and in fact all tables had delicious eatables on it, there was a platter of cheese, all the lovely roasted nuts in beautiful  jars, fruits, cocktails glasses full of chocolates. Most interestingly a basket inside the bathroom had nail polish, make up remover, hair clip, rubber bands among other ladies essentials. Oh man, this was minute details to the last. What a pleasant surprise.

Akriti Arora, the communications head made sure that my stay at the Sandal Suites would not just be luxurious but enjoyable with every attention to the details. One of them of course was the spa experience which was amazingly relaxing and rejuvenating as it should be but only when the ambience and the therapist is perfect which in this case it was. Located right next to the gym and the pool, the spa Kiyomi has four treatment rooms with a recently opened salon.

I was treated to their signature spa massage which included a scrub. Since I am not much of a scrub fan I requested oil massage. A pleasant looking therapist ushered me to the area where she did the feet ritual consisting of scrubbing, washing and drying my feet after which I was taken to the therapy room where soft music played. Soon it was all about the right pressure on my pressure points until I drifted slowly to sleep from which I was awakened with a soft tap by the therapist.  I also was treated to a manicure and foot reflexology that I enjoyed.

A bottle of chilled champage and an array of health food welcomed me at the spa lobby. In case you are in a healthy  party mood the Kiyomi can host upto 6 girls for a spaarty!  It's really a perfect place to have a nice bachelorette if you are into health and wellness and celebrate a milestone occasion just with your close #baes.

The Sandal Suites is big on art. From the ground floor to the topmost floor there's art everywehere which includes paintings, sculptures and beautiful tribal art and artifacts. Also it prefers to display beautiful tiny potted plants rather than flowers letting it grow and flower.

I had dinner at the Citrus restaurant patio that give you a view of the surroundings and chose to go with their Pan Asian cuisine. The chef indulgently prepared most of my requests and made sure it was made according to my taste. After which we headed to Bitters bar and lounge for some amazing cocktails.
