Lately, I have been on an eco-friendly lifestyle haul, hence, Lakshmi Spa was IT for me.
My 1 hour massage appointment was on Monday afternoon at 1400 hours. If you follow my social media accounts, you already know that I have been kitesurf training at JC Kitehouse in Garoda Beach Resort, Watamu. Therefore, that was a much needed massage.
From Garoda Beach Resort to Lakshmi Spa, it took me about twenty minutes to arrive just next to Crystal Bay.
Lakshmi Spa’s entrance door already gives a vintage statement with a handcrafted vintage doorbell which once I pulled the bell handle, not one minute passed, the door was opened by one of Lakshmi Spa’s staff, Dorothy. They’re a lovely family altogether!
Entering Lakshmi spa, my eyes were sparkled by a lush green garden trimmed to perfection. I was welcomed by the sweetest dog called Ice, as I greeted Lara with hugs and kisses. Not to mention, she is a lovely soul. Lara then introduced me to her other staff, Rita, who was going to be my masseuse for that hour. Rita ushered me into the lovely spa giving me a little tour for more eye candy.
Inside Lakshmi Spa, there is a guest waiting area with comfortable seating and a table with updated beauty and skincare magazines to keep yourself updated on beauty trends and skincare tips.
Located along the right side of the waiting area is a small boutique with tailored dresses, sandals and accessories from Afrosphere Design. While on the left side is a well equipped aesthetic room with a sophisticated light table stand for manicures and a wooden pedicure seat. Open built-in shelves on each room’s walls are used to store nail polishes and their natural beauty products on display.
Next to the aesthetic room is a massage room on your left which has twin massage beds for either couples or single massage.
Lakshmi Spa has two bathrooms; One is next to the massage room for guests and the other one is inside the massage room for clients to shower before and after their massage.
More so, among the services offered are manicure, pedicure, acrylics and lash extensions services. Waxing whether it is bikini, legs, arms, armpits, facial, chest and back. Also, face and body treatments; facial cleansing, facial scrub, specific facial treatment, body scrub and aloe body. Additionally, hydrotherapy, ayurveda, Kalari, lymph drainage legs, body stretching, back and reflexology services are offered for therapeutic muscle relaxant massages. Check out Lakshmi Spa Website for all the above mentioned services’ prices.
Down a small hallway you will find an open-concept massage room on your left, a relaxing area with sunbeds for sunbathing and outdoor grooming. The most amazing thing about Lakshmi Spa is that you can choose to have your massages and body treatments outside in their beautiful garden as you enjoy the paradisiacal nature views with melodic sounds from their windchimes.
Lakshmi Spa’s enchanting hydro pool for hydrotherapy massage with an outside shower adds on to the spa’s exquisiteness! You can choose to stay in the hydro pool for half an hour or more to your satisfaction.
I have to commend Lakshmi spa for an amazing ambience and having a squeaky clean spa. Bedsheets and towels are spotless.
I was excited to experience an outdoor massage in the outside massage room. It has an exquisite view with natural ventilation. As I laid on the massage bed in my towel, Rita got some natural massaging oil in an artistic bowl and massaged my body literally from head to toe. That massage was amazing!
Without much realization, my body actually needed massage therapy. I felt super light after the heavenly massage. It was too good that I looked intoxicated. Therapeutic indeed!
Sadly, my time was up, therefore, I could not dip into the hydro pool but my hands felt amazing during a one minute hydromassage test earlier. It’s definitely a plan for another day!
In a nutshell, it was a day spectacularly spent at one of the most enchanting spas in Watamu. Lakshmi Spa is your beauty, body and muscles plug Peaches. Also, perfect for bonding sessions with friends, spouse or family. Most definitely a unisex spa. Do snap fabulous pics and tag me when you go!
Needless to say, Lakshmi Spa’s staff are total sweethearts. Rita served me well whereas Dorothy assisted me a lot with filming and photography. You are rest assured to get the best services from these two sweet ladies.
Have a lovely and relaxing day Peaches! Cheers!
