Guilty. I stole the photo above from Google 😀
I know I took a coupla photos during the initial stages of my relationship with Kalm but that was probably more than a year ago now, so I’m not too sure where it is. And why let that stop me from writing my lil story 😉
So, how and when did we meet?
Early last year (2013), I had won a voucher from Virgin for various treatments. My first visit was a full body massage, which to be honest wasn’t actually superb. So, I didn’t write on it. The voucher also included keratin hair treatment, wash and blow dry which I later on returned for, followed by a great lunch with a girlfriend at Riva Beach Club 🙂 The treatment was good, but again – it wasn’t exceptional. So I never wrote on it…..
So why did you return then?
Although the two initial dates were not exceptional, the staff that took care of me – they were really friendly, and very nice. I felt comfortable, they were chatty and somewhat personal without being overly intrusive. So after trying various other spas throughout the year, in February this year I was much in need of a haircut and I didn’t know where to go. Kalm came to mind, so I picked up the phone 🙂
How did that go, after a year of absence?
February 28th. Friday morning. I booked for a haircut, and then when I got there I decided to buy the package deal which included various items – Wash/Blowdry, Kalm Facial, Mani/Pedi and Thermasoft Feet for 452AED 🙂
Gina took care of me. She was so careful with my hair, and I think she did an excellent job. Happy, again 🙂 I would later return on different visits for the facial, the mani, and then the pedi and thermasoft feet. Satisfied with the quality, and definitely the service 🙂
Which was your highlight?
Last Friday evening I went back for a full body massage (another package that I bought in May). I was 5 mins early for a 6pm appointment, but they weren’t ready until 25 pass. That got me a little irritated. I guess they did their part with making sure I had my green tea and all. When I walked in I asked the lady if she had just finished one shift and she said yea. I was thinking to myself, o dear, I hope she still has enough strength to do me 🙂
…..and you know what?
It was probably one of the best massages I’ve had for a very long time. Juvy was strong, she listened to me when I told her where I wanted more pressure and more focus. It was 90-mins well-worth-every-penny of a massage. I left extremely relaxed, and looking forward to my next visit with her 🙂 All ready for a night out to watch France thrash the Swiss in Barasti, haha.
So, you and Kalm, all good now?
Never been better. I’m looking at when to go back for my next facial. To be honest the place isn’t the flashiest if you want to compare with the spas in the hotels, but – it does its job, and it does it well. The prices are reasonable with the monthly deals. And alas, the service is superb 🙂 Cheers 🙂

I’ve had a massage there for more than a year ago. It was really good. Glad to hear that they’re still around (and maybe time to pop by again soon):)
Hey! 🙂 Yea, still there for sure! Good time to pamper ourselves over the quiet period of Ramadan as well ay…
