I’ve been under a lot of stress lately and been looking at a way to escape the daily routine and de-stress myself, to get back into the grind and give my best. A Spa-cation is what you need, and I had just the destination in mind – the ‘Spa La Vie’ by L’Occitane, VR Mall in Whitefield, Bangalore. A sprawling 4200 sq.ft. Mediterranean wellness escapade, that lets you indulge in the Provencal-inspired treatments, in the midst of the city’s hustle and bustle.

The moment I entered, I was welcomed by the staff with a big smile on their face, who also offered me the tasty ginger lemon green tea and then I was walked into my private suite where my chosen ‘Hot Stone massage’ was scheduled. The ambience was indeed soothing with the lovely aroma of the de-stressing essential oils and the quaint music too. The suite had an attached steam room as well, in case you need a steam bath.
