It is observed that SPA and Body Massage business is trending in Pakistan especially in major cities like – Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. SPA business are considered legal in Pakistan but what going inside in most SPAS is really shocking.
Few years back, there seen so many media sting operations in Karachi and Lahore on various SPA Saloons actually used as prostitution centers. In this article, you will find review based on our personal experience and this will definitely help you to take right decision before visiting any SPA Saloon in Lahore.
Marrakech – Located in central and most elite location of Lahore, is one of the most famous and renowned SPA operating from last 6-7 years. Before, the SPA was in Park Lane Hotel, Lahore and now in Gulberg 2 behind Hafeez Center (The famous mobile market of town).
This SPA offers Swedish, Thai, Lomilomi and Sports Massage by Pakistani and Philippian female staff. The SPA also has facility of Sauna, Turkish and Marrakech bath. Moreover, a well-furnished hair and makeup Saloon with qualified and well trained Hair Dresser and staff.
The ambiance of SPA is really good with ample parking space. Rooms are neat, clean and very peaceful. The front desk staff is really very cooperative. The customers are served with Green Tea and Juices as complementary.
Let’s talk about the main service of this SPA, i.e body massage by female staff. We visited the SPA 10-15 times in last 3 months by booking appointment through phone calls for massage and tried every massage and therapist from this Salon and here is our honest review.
We have found that, only few therapists (two –three) are well trained and feel value against money paid at reception before check-in to room. Rest of the staff under-trained or they are hired for wasting customer money and time.
The Philippian staff are really professional, highly trained and exactly knows the pressure point. But do not try transgender here, you will feel regret. Totally waste of time and money. She will entertain you with sex stories instead of giving massage.
On the other hand, the Pakistani staff is highly non-professional. Their main mission is to divert customer from body massage to other services and keep asking for 5,000 Rupees to 15,000 Rupees. If you ignore her, you will be in real trouble; she will pour oil only on your body and finish the massage in 30 minutes.
If you really want a Sports Massage, or you have some serious pain problem, good news is you can book appointment with Mr.Iqbal Butt, Monday to Sunday from 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM. He is renowned Physiotherapist of Pakistan Cricket Team.
If you want a good hair cut or shaved or beard trimming, Mr.Hunain a well-trained and professional hair dresser will make you looks really good.
If you really want body massage, book appointment with Philippine staff. But, if you have some other intentions, go with Pakistani therapist. She will give you happy pleasure against good tip and will share her contact number as well for further future deals.
You can find a feedback book as well on reception counter, but unfortunately that book is only for good feedback, your bad experience with therapist will never ever be entertained in any case. The owners of this SPA should think about it.
