During my stay at the Grand Mercure Sao Paulo Itaim Bibi, I had a opportunity to experience the Buddha Spa, located the top floor. First and foremost, if you want to read more about this beautiful hotel that was recently and gorgeously remodeled, be sure to read my other article here.
The rooftop of this hotel, including the Buddha Spa is just gorgeous. Half of it makes up the spa and the other half is the fitness center, pool, and sauna. Walking into the Buddha Spa I felt comfortable and was warmly welcomed by the staff. This is important! The lobby design draws you inward towards the window of the rooftop terrace which is a peaceful oasis.
I’ve been having some back issues so a massage was exactly what I was looking for. I went for a 50 minute relaxation massage. The therapist met me in the lobby and escorted me to the treatment room just down the hallway. As I would expect at this property, because everything is so well thought out, the treatment rooms were also very comfortable and beautiful. Also, the music was at the perfect volume, the colors were nice and relaxing, and the therapist took good care of me.
For reference, I’ve experienced the finest massages all around the world and I have to say that here at the Buddha spa in São Paulo, I was incredibly happy with the treatment. My therapist knew exactly what she was doing and did a great job overall. It’s like she could sense exactly where I was the most tense and treated it. How lovely!
After my treatment, I left feeling incredible. I went back to the spa lobby and enjoyed some Indian chai.
All in all, my experience at the Buddha Spa Itaim Bibi was fantastic, from beginning to end, and top to bottom. This spa is great. If you’re looking for a great spa treatment while in Sao Paulo, look no further than the Buddha Spa Itaim Bibi!
