Feet, get ready for some tender, loving, care!

What do you do when you have an afternoon off which can help you loosen your muscles and relax? Look nowhere else than Breeze Spa at Amari Johor Bahru. Located at the sixth floor of the hotel, Breeze Spa offers various Spa and Beauty treatments for both men and women.

Be greeted by friendly faces at the Spa and enjoy a cold welcome drink of “Butterfly Pea Tea” flown in from Bangkok, Thailand which changes colour to purple upon squeezing lemon. The tea has Vitamin E in it and is good for the eyes, hair and skin. Having a good start with a healthy drink, we were explained about the various treatments available at the spa by Annie, the senior masseuse who is very knowledgeable and full of tips.

Couples may opt for the couple’s room called the “Wind” which comes with a Jacuzzi and a private bath and twin massage beds. We were all set for the pampering to begin and were started off with a foot wash ritual encompassing sea salt and aromatherapy oil. Annie then scrubbed our feet with sea salt to get rid of any dead skin and finished it off with a peppermint spray.

The masseuses then left us alone to enjoy the Jacuzzi for 15 minutes before heading onto the beds for Breeze Spa’s signature Coffee Scrub. I was initially skeptical about the scrub as I’m not a fan of coffee, but the concoction was mixed with a special blend of citrus essential oils and I didn’t regret it one bit. This scrub was inspired by Johor Bahru’s dynamic coffee scene and it helps detoxify and re-energise the skin. This is a full body scrub for 45 minutes but if you totally dislike coffee, opt for the mango scrub which is equally popular with patrons. However, take my word for it and give coffee a shot!

After the scrub, continue to lie down for 5 minutes or so before heading to the private bath for a shower.  Get back into your robes and ring the bell as a signal for the masseuses that you are ready for the next pampering. Breeze Spa offers 5 types of Mood Massages, but currently only 4 are available. Take your pick from ‘Dreamy’ – which is an aromatherapy based massage, ‘Serene’ – a combination of Swedish and Balinese massage and techniques which is a popular choice, ‘Rejuvenated’ – which is lymphatic drainage massage to remove toxins from the body due to stress and pollution or ‘Invigorated’ – which is deep tissue massage.

We opted for ‘Serene’ massage that uses Swedish thumb and elbow techniques with the right mix of Balinese massage to let it all go! Do indicate to your masseuse for the level of firmness and if you need certain areas of the body to be emphasized more. The full body massage including the head lasted for 1 hour. The massage ended with a “pick-me-up” lotion which has mint and menthol smell applied to your back and shoulders to give you that rejuvenated feel.
