Admit it. This rainy and gloomy weather makes you just want to spend the rest of the day in bed and rest all day. The sound of the raindrops on the roof, the smell of the damp trees, the feel of the cool winds… simply the perfect combination for relaxation.

However if you are looking for a better way to spend your rest time, there’s a newly opened place in the metro where the word relaxation is taken into a whole new level. Kallista Nail Pamper Lounge offers a goddess-like experience to all its clientele.

The Olympus experience

Kalimera! Upon entering the nail lounge, all the staff will greet you with this word which means “good day” in Greek. The greeting is actually very fit with the Greece-inspired interiors that give off a very classy yet non-intimidating vibe.

The space is elegantly decorated with custom-made plush armchairs, comfortable pillows, and gold adornments. It’s literally like a having a taste of Olympus! And as soon as you get cozy in one of the sofas, your assigned attendant will offer a complimentary drink. You may opt for a cup of coffee, hot tea, iced tea, or water. To balance the cold, rainy weather, their hot tea is highly recommended.

A number of nail salons offer quality polishes like OPI, Orly, and Cuccio. Kallista, on the other hand, also carries these brands but what makes it different from others are the high-end nail polishes in the house. Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, YSL, Nars and Louboutin are just some of the luxury brands they have. Imagine, Louboutin on your nails! If you can’t have it in your feet, then at least have it on your nails.

Aside from polish, they offer hand and foot scrub, mask, massage, and a lot more. One of the best-sellers, however, is the Kallista Signature Pampering which comprises spa, scrub, massage, manicure, and polish for both hands and feet (hands PhP 435, feet PhP 715). All the bath salts, scrubs, lotions, and oils used are customized for Kallista alone, giving that distinct experience to all its clients.

What’s more, well-trained and courteous attendants (who, by the way, are one of the biggest assets of the place) do the services, leaving the customers feeling pleased and satisfied.

The Kallista trademark

They say that the best service comes in the smallest details. And based on the feedbacks of their clients, Kallista definitely knows “great service” by heart. For customers who happen to wear jeans on their visit, Kallista offers complimentary shorts, robes, and slippers before the start of the pampering session. For customers who want to maximize their relaxation time, Kallista lends eye masks, blankets, and heat packs for the lower back. The eye masks are imported and are divine to the skin when worn. And for customers who simply want a true VIP treatment, Kallista has all the ingredients for you to feel like a goddess for a day.

Kallista Nail Pamper Lounge is located at 2F S Maison, Conrad Hotel Manila, Marina Way, Mall of Asia. For inquiries, one may contact 0977-259-1147.
