We love how their home-made cream smells amazingly good! Try their variant essence like strawberry, milk, avocado, aloe vera, ginseng and green tea. It’s even cheaper if you go for their value set which include creambath and a reflexology massage. You’ll get served pretty fast except when they have lots of client queuing. Not very fancy but its good for cheap and cheerful treat and if you need quick massage to revive your body.
