Discover Couples Massage this Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s day coming up, many couples seek romantic ideas on what to do…Why not take the day off and come relax with your partner at our day spa.

What is a couples massage?

A couples massage is performed for two people, in the same room at the same time, each by their own therapist.  Typically this is a romantic venture, where lovers are welcomed to  relax in the serene, romantic environment and are pampered in a more private setting than a normal massage. A couples massage is also great for friends, mothers and daughters, brides and bridesmaids, expectant mothers and so forth. This is a more social way of experiencing a massage together, as the couple is allowed to converse during the massage or be silent if preferred.

What happens during a couples massage?

Although the contents of your chosen spa package will vary, the standard procedure is more or less the same :

Couples are received at the spa reception (preferably 5-10 minutes before your appointment time) and offered welcoming drinks whilst you are required to complete a consultation card to clarify your expectations and concerns. Here after your therapists will come and introduce themselves and guide you to the private suite where the treatments will take place. Your two therapists will now confirm your planned treatments with you and explain that they are going to step outside while you remove the necessary clothing items required and lie down on the massage bed. When you are ready the therapists will enter the room again and commence with your treatments.

What can I expect of different packages / treatments?

The most essential part of a couples package, would be the massage. There are various different massages, such as Swedish massage, Hot Stone Massage, Deep tissue Massage, reflexology  etc. From there you can either choose one of our various packages or create your own package.

Aside from the massage, you can also have facials, manicures, pedicures, body wraps, full body scrubs, slimming treatments, even waxing or enjoy our water facilities : Steam Room, Infrared Sauna, Jacuzzi or Tranquility Bath. Guests are advised to bring along their swimwear for the water facilities and are granted exclusive private use of these facilities during their visit.

Will it be uncomfortable for men to visit the spa?

Annique Day Spa is a “male-friendly” environment. Men and women visit the spa regularly and while you are here, you are never sharing space with other guests and hardly see anyone during their stay. Also, the environment is neutral and natural –  you will not be wearing a pink robe with fluffy slippers!

Will there be something to eat?

As the packages can be a whole day or half day, one can get quite famished. This is why we offer breakfast, lunch and snacks. You are welcome to inquire about our menu and book your meals as you wish, if they are not included in our packages. We have lovely private dining areas, as well as a popular “secret garden”.

A couples massage or package is ideal for Valentine’s Day, to bring you closer together. We try to create the ultimate ‘togetherness-experience’ for couples, unless otherwise requested. All guests are treated with modesty and professionalism in our tranquil and laid-back environment. Take the opportunity and treat your Valentine to experience the benefits of massage that promotes feel-good hormones (Serotonin, Dopamine and Oxytocin ) and physically relaxes the muscles in the body – and a relaxed body is a relaxed mind.
