Our 18-day trip through ‘the Stans’ was coming to an end. Kyrgyzstan was our fourth country and Bishkek was our 8th city. We only had two days to spend here. After these two days was a long travel day back to Almaty, Kazakhstan for one night. Then an early morning flight back to Barcelona, Spain with a five-hour layover in Istanbul, Turkey. So, we decided it would be great to spend one day seeing some sights and the other day enjoying the wonderful Solutel Hotel and the Mystic Spa.
Mystic Spa is probably the best spa in Bishkek. I only say probably because it was the only one I had time to visit. However, I’m no stranger to spas. I have been to many around the world including The Corinthia in London, England; Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Canada; and LADE in Costa Rica. Also, Mystic Spa is rated #2 on Trip Advisor with 50 reviews.
Mystic Spa has combined wellness treatments, cosmetology, nail services, and hair services all under one roof. The relaxing ambiance and calming interiors of Mystic along with the soothing aromas welcome you as soon as you enter the building.
Mystic Spa Services
Spread over two floors they offer eight treatment rooms including one designed for couples’ massages. The spa offers various Thai massages and Ayurvedic massage therapies with traditional massage oils. They include the Abhyanga — Ancient Seven Steps, Indian Ayurvedic Reflexology (Foot) Massage, Ayurvedic Massage with Kizhi-Hot Herbal Bags, and Postnatal Therapeutic Massage for mother and child, just to name a few. The massage session is given by expert masseur girls with years of experience in traditional massage.
The cosmetology includes anti-aging, anti-acne, and refreshing facials. Here you can get unique Ayurvedic herbal and organic facials designed and formulated by Shahnaz Husain. She is a world-renowned “Indian guru of beauty treatments”. If you want the best, then you will get the Gold or Diamond Facial. The gold facial is a combination of rare herbs, natural oils, and pure 24 karat gold. The diamond facial is an exfoliating anti-aging facial, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
A wide variety of nail services are available for both men, women, and children. They range from classic manicures and pedicures to paraffin therapy for the hands and feet.
Complete your day of pampering with their full line of aesthetics available. With everything from eyebrow correction, eyelash extension, henna art, waxing services, hair, and makeup, you will leave feeling and looking amazing.
The Mystic Spa is a lovely spa that also has a herbal steam sauna that can be used in conjunction with spa treatments.
My Experience At Mystic Spa Bishkek
My experience with the spa was excellent from the moment we walked in the door. The politeness and helpfulness of the staff were lovely. I chose the Abhyanga — Ancient Seven Steps massage therapy and my friend had the special Aromatherapy Relaxation massage. We both enjoyed our treatments very much. As we walked back to the perfect Bishkek hotel, the Solutel Hotel, we talked about how much we enjoyed the spa and wished we had more time to go back and try more of the treatments they offer.
