I have never used the Molton Brown spa in all my years of travelling- I am thinking of giving it a go this time. Do you have any recommendations? I suppose that booking ahead is a good idea?
Unlike the VS
Clubhouse you cannot book ahead for treatments, it is on a first come, first served basis. I've not had a problem in booking on the day and usually am given a few options about when I'd like the massage. If possible they try and make it closest to departure time as possible, usually I end up going straight from the appointment to the boarding gate. However they do often get booked up so if you arrive an hour before the flight it is unlikely you'll get an appointment, therefore I try to make it my first airside port of call.
The choices are face, hand, foot and back massage. I always go for the back massage, tried it once and was superb so haven't bothered to change although in fairness I am no massage expert. The appointments usually last 20mins although the window given is 30mins.
If you like Molton Brown stuff say nicely at the end, I've been giving a fair few samples (and more!) on occassions.
One thing to note is the Arrivals Lounge massage is not the same. The departure lounge one is a full on lie-down, clothes off, oil based massage whereas the one in Arrivals is done in one of those odd chair things and there is only one masseuse, First time I did it I made a real fool of myself trying to work out how to sit down! It is upstairs in the T4
Arrivals Lounge, turn left at top of the stairs and it is a door off the Combiz area with a small bronze MB
