The third floor is the mot luxurious area of the building as it houses the spa. The décor of the spa is laid-back and uses soft colors to provide an ambience of relaxation and comfort. There are separate treatment rooms, each of which has its own theme according to the treatment it offers. The spa strives to provide high-quality, personalized services for hair, face and body.
For hair, treatments include hot botanical hair wrap, herbal hot oil wrap and herbal scalp cooling therapy, which are perfect for the summer time. The treatment uses organic coconut oil that cools off the scalp and gives the hair a shiny texture.
The treatment takes place in an Indian themed room, where the costumer is asked to lay down on a massage table. There is a wood hanger holding a metal bowl filled with cold coconut oil. The ball pours the treatment mix into the client’s hair while the massage therapist massages the scalp for about 30 minutes.
For the body, treatments include Thai hot stone massage, Swedish massage, foot reflexology massage, intense muscle rescuing massage and Ayurvedic massage, which is an ancient Indian massage that targets specific points in the body using traditional warm oil application techniques to return the body to a state of balance and well being. The anti-cellulite massage is highly recommended as it smoothens the skin’s texture and reduces further cellulite development.
For baths, there is the traditional Moroccan hammam and the Cleopatra bath, which detoxifies the body using a dry scrub, followed by a rose milk bath and a fragrant cream massage.
Eve has recently introduced a 24-carat gold facial that uses pure 24 carat gold powder that gives the face a mineral lift and polish. There is also the herbal acne facial that is powerful enough to treat all acne and scars. Other popular facial treatments include: Bio peel face treatment, mature skin facial, oxygen facial and chocolate facial.
The placenta facial is exclusively available at Eve. This facial is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids and is highly recommended for those who want their skin to look younger and brighter.
The products used for this treatment, such as goat placenta, are specially delivered from China. According to a massage and facial therapist at Eve, the effect of this facial lasts longer than that of a typical facial, which means that one can have it done every three months only.
After regular cleansing and exfoliation, the placenta product is applied in the form of mask, cream or gel and massaged in. The best part of this facial is the cold mask, which is so cool that you feel your skin is breathing mints.
The spa is open six days a week and offers packages and gift certificates.
