Being a girl could be very tiring. Life could be very demanding and it’s only about time that you will feel stressed. For me, as a student and also ‘small’ entrepreneur, my daily activity could be chaotic when I’m not feeling well. Having a good spa treatment is the ultimate answer.
There’s tons of spas and massage parlors in Medan. Ranging from the massage only (cheaper) to full-treatments spa which is obviously fancier. You could choose according to your need. I usually prefer a full-treatments spa, because I really enjoy the step-by-step treatment, very relaxing! In this post I will share my experience at Gandara Spa, one of the best spas in Medan.
Gandara Spa is located at Jalan Tengku Amir Hamzah, Medan. If you’re not a local, or if you’re not very sure about the location, you could use either Google Map or Waze app to navigate your way there. The venue has its own coffee shop, Morning Glory. This coffee shop is quite a shot too, I will post about this later.
If you’re a walk-in customer, you’ll be greeted and offered a premium rate card (the prices are usually higher). I suggest you to do a reservation call at least a day before coming there, not only the price will be appealing, you also free to adjust the time for your session (avoiding the queue). You can also buy discounted vouchers from DealMedan (a-must-have-app for discounts hunter like me).
I am a fan of this spa’s exterior and interior decorations. Its magical atmosphere is relaxing, the sounds of water and the scents of aromatherapy are things I can never forget from Gandara Spa.
The treatment itself was very good, started with full-body massage (good detailing by the professional therapist here), continued with lulur (traditional body-scrub treatment), optional baths, and finished by soul relieving wedang (traditional drink from ginger and herbs).
I was like: ‘born again’! Yay, now am ready to face the world again.
