April Spa Hamper at Warwick Doha Hotel

One of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever seen here in Doha is surprisingly also one of the lesser known, the Warwick Doha Hotel located near the Sports Roundabout boasts amazing rooms with great amenities. I live very near this hotel and yet, have never really visited it that much. I think I should be doing that more from now on.

I found myself in Warwick Doha Hotel last week to avail their April spa hamper package promotion. For the price of QR360 you get 30 minutes each of sugar and spice body scrub, a relaxing massage and a facial. That’s 90 minutes of pure bliss and pampering. As soon as I saw this promotion on their Facebook page, I knew I needed to book this for myself as I badly need someone to untie the knots on my back which is bothering me a lot.

With a spa treatment, you also get to access their rooftop pool which although is quite small – is fabulous enough to spend a quick dip in. Steam and sauna rooms are also available for you to use before or after your treatment. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to use any of these amenities as I was too busy taking photos of their gorgeous spa.

My treatment started at 11am and I was immediately led to a small room with a massage table in the middle. Lights were dimmed and a soft, relaxing music plays in the background to set the mood. My therapist made sure that I was feeling comfortable before starting with the sugar and spice body scrub. I was due for a body scrub as the last one I’ve had was so many months ago, in my age I think I should be doing this more often. #OldWomanProblems

Benefits of sugar and spice body scrub:
  1. Hydrates skin as sugar is a natural humectant which draws moisture from the environment into the skin.
  2. Exfoliation, the sugar granules when rubbed on your skin gradually removes the top layer of dead skin. It also removes damaged skin cells and opens up clogged pores.
  3. The rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface.
  4. It’s relaxing, the scent of the sugar and the sensation of rubbing it on your skin is very relaxing at least for me.

Once my whole body’s been scrubbed (I smelled like cinnamon rolls), I was asked to go in the shower room which is inside the treatment room itself to wash off the sugar and spice on my body. Then the aromatherapy massage started right after.

I have quite a low tolerance in pain even when it comes to getting a massage so I always choose aromatheraphy which uses soft to medium pressure. My therapist was able to give me just the right amount of pressure – not too soft and not too hard. I highly enjoyed the experience and had to fight the urge to drift off to la la land as I wanted to enjoy every single minute of this massage.

Afterwards, the facial treatment was done. I personally would’ve preferred this facial treatment to be skipped and just have a longer time for a massage. I’m not really into facial treatments in fact, I think I’ve only done it twice in my life. I’m obviously not doing the “being a woman” part of my life. Head and neck massage was also done during the facial though so I kinda liked it as well.

After the whole treatment, I felt like I was a renewed person. I felt so fresh, light and relaxed – with my sleepy eyes, you probably would think I was high on something if you saw me walking out of that treatment room.

It was a very wonderful experience and something that I would definitely do again. I’m keeping my eye open for their next spa promotion and so should you.

    Oh my what a treat this is. Over the weekend I was just telling my friend to join me for a facial, because one of our friends has her own business now.

    I never experienced hilot in my entire life and I wanted to try it now.

      I should do facials more often and do try hilot, you’ll either love me or hate me for it. Depending on your tolerance to pain. :p

    So envious… Haha! It’s freakin expensive here. I onced went to a clinic for back facial & massage and I came home broke. We do have a Filipino massage clinic here in Cph with reasonable price. But I should try a massage in a hotel.

        Hilot is an alternative medicine in the Philippines. Whenever I was sick, my mom would bring me to a “manghihilot” and this person will massage my whole body with such a heavy pressure. They can also reset dislocated joints, so basically they’re voo doo chiropractors. Lol.
