Myoka Spa Le Meridien had become our oasis during our stay at the hotel. Its interior basks an atmosphere of relaxation and offers an exclusive private refuge of wellness and harmony. A painful backache was killing me those days, and I felt quite uncomfortable. I still had 3 days to go with several appointments, a trip to Gozo, plus sightseeing and with all these, I had no idea how to cope, until I visited the Spa.
I dropped by, the Myoka Spa that same afternoon of my arrival and had an extended chat with the duty supervisor telling her about my back problem. She explained in detail every step of the treatment for my case, she recommended the traditional ‘Elakizhi’ Ayurveda treatment and set the appointment for the next morning. In the suite, I had the opportunity to go through the leaflets I was given earlier to check. There were lots. You can easily get lost for choice!
The Lotus Indoor Pool
The Lotus indoor swimming pool is located on the 2nd floor of the hotel, close to the Myoka Spa facilities. A real haven of peace, this heated pool evokes a fascinating oriental atmosphere.
The list indicated treatments of Body, Mind & Soul, and Ayurveda. Special Face treatments, Baths Body Scrubs & Wraps, Oriental & Holistic therapies, Hands & Feet but also Signature packages. The whole experience will set you into an unrivalled sensorial experience where Orient, Mediterranean and Nordic fragrances meet Maltese essences! With specifically tailored treatments for individual requirements, Myoka Spa Le Meridien offers top-notch services and a plethora of different other treatments.
So, I am back to the Myoka Spa the next day, much after breakfast. My therapist is waiting for me and gives me a warm welcome. In the meantime, I am glad I had completed the questionnaire the previous day, thus I save time. With no delay, Ciara instructs me in a soft voice to follow her into a treatment room where for the next couple of hours I was pampered with my rejuvenating Ayurveda treatment.
When I am ready Ciara explains step by step the procedure while I listen to her with interest although I have experienced this treatment several more times. Ciara was very polite and discreet and instantly put me at ease with her professional and reassuring manner.
The traditional ‘Elakizhi’ Ayurveda treatment had to do with fresh herb leaves cooked in Ayurvedic oils packed in bundles and applied hot. The technique nourishes, tones and rejuvenates the body cells, alleviates sore muscles and joints, enhances and cleanses the channels of circulation and expels toxins through the sweat.
