For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a frazzled individual. Even as a child, I’d work myself up to the point of illness after taking on too much. It’s only recently that I’ve learnt how to effectively manage my stress by taking time out every day to breathe, meditate, exercise and relax. Every now and then I’ll even treat myself to a facial or massage.
After moving to Christchurch and establishing a running route along Ernle Clark Reserve, I happened upon Lotus at Siam Thai Day Spa. Also known as Swan Lake, the estate overlooks a lake, which is home to two swans, Samuel and Samantha. After gazing longingly at the picturesque homestead as I ran past, I vowed to one day book an appointment.
If you’re looking for a unique experience in stunning surroundings, look no further than Swan Lake. Offering an array of services ranging from deep tissue and hot stone massages to wraps and facials of every variety, the spa is elegantly decorated to induce deep relaxation. My upper back had been bothering me for a few weeks, particularly after spending too much time hunched over my computer, so I was eager for my 90-minute Swedish massage.
Admiring Swan Lake’s gorgeous interior, I sipped tea and selected my massage oil. I opted for lavender and camomile as both known for their calming qualities. Throughout my massage, the masseuse adjusted the pressure accordingly, checking in with me to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed.
For those looking to reignite the romance, Swan Lake specialises in couples massages and pamper packages. Service is a priority and our experience is perfect from start to finish. I left Swan Lake feeling recharged, rejuvenated and calm. Needless to say, I’ll be returning for another treatment in the imminent future.
