HEAVEN IN HELSINKI

9 Feb

I GOT A LOVELY GIFT FROM MY DEAR FRIEND RIINA, ONE HOUR MASSAGE GIFT CARD TO SILUETTI SPA. THIS WAS MY FIRST EXPERIENCE IN THIS  SPA WHICH IS LOCATED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF HELSINKI.

MY WARM SPA OUTFIT; VINTAGE FUR HAT, LEOPARD JACKET AND LEATHER BRACELET FROM HERE AND MUFFLER NK, I BOUGHT IT FROM FLEA MARKET YEARS AGO.
WHEN I STEPPED IN TO THE ELEVATOR FROM THE BUSYNESS OF THE CITY AND GOT IN TO THE SPA, IT WAS LIKE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT WORLD, NO SIGN OF ANYTHING ELSE BUT TRANQUILLITY. IMMEDIATELY RELAXING AMBIENCE FILLED WITH WONDERFUL SCENTS, SILENCE  AND FRIENDLY SERVICE.

MORE INFORMATION;

SILUETTI SPA

THE ADDRESS IS POHJOISESPLANADI 35, 6TH FLOOR, 00100 HELSINKI.

I GOT THERE A LITTLE TOO LATE, SINCE YOU SHOULD ALWAYS COME AT LEAST HALF AN HOUR BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT, JUST TO SET YOUR MIND WITHOUT HURRYING AND RELAX IN CHILL OUT ROOM WITH TEA OR LITTLE SNACKS…THIS WAY YOU WILL GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SPA TREATMENT.

IT WAS TIME TO PUT ON A ROPE AND A PAIR OF SLIPPERS….

SILUETTI SPA IS LUXURIOUS, VERY CLEAN AND NEAT, WITH ALL THE POSSIBLE BEAUTY NECESSITIES THAT YOU WOULD NEED BEFORE OR AFTER SPA TREATMENTS…SO YOU DEFINITELY DON´T NEED TO DRAG ALL YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS WITH YOU…THERE IS EVEN MAKEUP ARTIST AVAILABLE , IF NEEDED,

 THIS WONDERFUL THAI MASSAGER CALLED PIK CAME TO GET ME FROM THE CHILL OUT ROOM AND IT WAS TIME TO GET MY MUSCLES RELAXED.

WHILE LAYING ON THE MASSAGE BED, I WAS HAPPY TO SEE SOMETHING ELSE THAN A CONCRETE FLOOR UNDERNEATH.THERE WAS  THIS LOVELY SET OF FLOWERS AND STONES IN WATER.

WOW, I ENDED UP GETTING THE BEST MASSAGE EVER, AND I DO MEAN THE BEST!!!!! I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING MANY MASSAGES IN MY LIFE, ALL AROUND THE WORLD, BUT THIS TINY THAI GIRL HAD THE STRENGTH OF A SUPERMAN AND THE SKILLS OF A MAGICIAN. I WAS SO HAPPY AND RELAXED.AFTER MASSAGE, I WAS TAKEN TO CHILL OUT ROOM TO RELAX  AND PIK MADE ME THIS LOVELY CUP OF TEA, WITH A REAL FLOWER BESIDE THE CUP, I LOVE THAT!!! LITTLE DETAILS ALWAYS IMPRESS ME THE MOST.I HAVE EXPERIENCE OF COUPLE OTHER SPAS IN HELSINKI AS WELL. TO BE HONEST THIS WAS CLEARLY THE BEST EXPERIENCE, SILUETTI SPA IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF SUCCESFUL DESIGN MANAGEMENT, EVERYTHING WORKS SMOOTHLY, LITTLE DETAILS ARE MAKING THE EXPERIENCE SPECIAL AND UNIQUE. I FELT THAT THERE IS  NOTHING IN THEIR CONCEPT THAT COULD RUIN YOUR WONDERFUL SPA EXPERIENCE.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE, EXTREMELY LOVELY GIFT IDEA TO ANYONE, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN ARE WELCOME, EVEN TOGETHER.

JUST FOR YOUR INFORMATION,IF I COMPARE MY SILUETTI SPA EXPERIENCE WITH;

HELSINKI DAY SPA; NICE PLACE, WAS MY FAVOURITE BEFORE I VISITED SILUETTI SPA, BUT NOT SO PRIVATE AND UNIQUE, SERVICE IS NOT SO PERSONAL AND CARING AND THE TREATMENTS WERE NOTHING SPECIAL, COSY SURROUNDINGS WERE THE ONLY THING THAT MADE ME FEEL LIKE BEING IN A SPA.

KÄMP SPA; MY BOYFRIEND GOT ME NEARLY 300 EUROS SET OF TREATMENTS FOR MY BIRTHDAY SOME YEARS AGO. I HAD HIGH EXPECTATIONS, BUT WAS TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED..THERE WAS YOUNG UNPROFESSIONAL GIRLS DOING EVERYTHING ELSE BUT HELPING THE CUSTOMERS, THE TREATMENTS LASTED HALF OF THE TIME THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO AND WERE DONE BY SOME TRAINEES THAT DIDN´T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING….THE SURROUNDINGS WERE TOO HARSH AND DREARY FOR MY TASTE…. I WASN´T EVEN OFFERED A GLASS OF WATER, THEIR SO CALLED CHILL OUT CORNER WAS DIRTY AND FULL OF DIRTY GLASSES AND DISHES…IT WAS ANYTHING ELSE BUT RELAXING AND PLEASANT EXPERIENCE….I DID A RECLAMATION, AND THE MANAGER WAS THE WORST….I KNOW THAT THE OWNER CHANGED QUITE SOON AFTER MY VISIT THERE, SO MAYBE THAT PLACE IS NOT THE SAME ANYMORE, BUT I WILL NOT TAKE THE RISK TO WASTE MONEY AGAIN….

    Really good post. Great pictures. I was looking up Spa’s in Helsinki and this was very informative as it gave me an idea of what the Spa looks like and where to go. Thank you.
