O2 The Splendid SPA of Mercure Grand

Massage the way I like it at Bengaluru, India

overcast 26 °C

The morning started with a call from Ani to give me a earful of advice on how to pick the right property in Bangalore and how not to hurry up with my decision, hardly surprising since there is money to be made. I then went around with the team from DTZ to see some cherries that i could pick from the city's property market. I zeroed in on a townhouse condominium called Zonasha Paradisio . I think it should be a good buy at half a million US$ and with a rent agreement with someone in the hospitality who could pay a rent of 15lakh’s per annum. But Ani has advised to wait and decode attitude on this one.We searched for flat’s in Indira Nagar , and Whitefield road.

I had my breakfast and took a hotel taxi straight to the office of Thrillophilia . It was on the third floor with a lot of activity happening all around . I was greeted by Chitra the CEO & founder of the company and she liked my Travelthon story and concept so far and advised me that some one from her content team would call and take it from there. chitra


Well this was not so difficult I thought and then headed in search of the Bangalore based yourstory.com and I had heard much about them. They had recently raised funding from Ratan Tata himself. I was amazed at the warmth that i was greeted with there by Shradha the founder and a veteran journalist. I stood right in the middle of their office and told my story and the journey of Tikku’s Travelthon to their entire staff. The reception was warm and they promised they'd cover me on my story!

The last meeting was a bumper Holiday Iq cancelled my appointment and i was left with nowhere but the hotel to go to. After my lunch meeting with my friend, I decided to hit the SPA at the hotel called O2. It was for a 90 Min Thai and Balinese massage and spa treatment was just what i needed , man the after she covered me head to toe in oil and rubbed my muscles with vigor . Each point on the feet each nerve was pressed and put in it’s place , all the loose joint’s where tightened as i made funny noises . I went to sleep for a while as the massage was intense and very soothing .The room smelled of jasmine and rose , with music playing in the background , the lighting was low and the room was spacious. The massage lady just went on and on making sure no part of the body was left asking . I took regular sip’s of lime water to relax myself . After the 90 min massage , i took a shower and headed out .It was a wee expensive Rs 5000 in all and i felt like i was floating on the cloud’s .It was like coming out of the gym , only with less aches and pain’s . On top of that it is healthy for the blood circulation and the oil is great for the skin. I loved the experience and will repeat it surely during my stay here Ah! Bangalore i am enjoying it…
