I stayed for 4 nights and the treatment centre is ok. We stayed a couple for 4 days of rejuvenation. We will be told to be ready for treatment at a certain time the previous day. Then we will be asked to go for treatment 30 mins early and they stay at your your door to take you away. There is no privacy for changing at the massage centre. While you finish and changing you can see the next person having massage and with no locks there so expect anyone to walk in while you are changing. And the massage will happen with you just wearing a small piece of cloth as underwear which can be revealing at most times. There will be 2 pax massaging you on a wooden bench. Male for male and female masseurs for females.Most of the time I felt like a meat bag being rubbed upon, they don't treat you like a fellow human being lying there.
Also when your being massaged they could play some music to ease your ears but they try to talk to each other and since you don't have any idea of what they talk when you can't understand them. They don't speak much English so you will need the duty doctor to translate to them at times which can be too late at times when you try to tell something to the masseurs.
The lady at the reception was very friendly but she definitely needs some help. I had asked her for the bill on the 4 the day for several times and I finally got it at the end of the day, same goes for my pillow request at 11 AM till I received at 9 PM after persistently asking her and the night receptionists who knows limited English as well
The chief doctor was friendly and very helpful sorting our treatment but he is not there all around. In regards to the food at the canteen if you don't order in advance you get nothing. Even though they give you a menu card, unless there is enough people they cant make it for you. Plus the variety of fruits available are limited and they promise to get you later but they don't. And there went my mango lassi with no mango :(.
In overall if you just expect the treatment its good but if you after good service then I wouldn't suggest here. I was going to suggest this place but after going there myself I am not sure I can. But for the money you pay its ok but bit far away from any hotels or amenities.
