One of my favorite ways to de-stress at the airport is to treat myself to a quick spa treatment.
We were coming back from a Christmas vacation to the Netherlands to visit my family in December 2018. The trip had been lovely, but various other travel and health-related concerns meant we were quite stressed on the return journey through Amsterdam’s Schiphol. XpresSpa put things back on track.
Schiphol’s XpresSpa in Lounge 3
Schiphol has 3 locations of XpresSpa, and I visited the one in Lounge 3, right next to healthy eating spot VIT. The spa is a little more tucked away from the busy concourse, so it’s a great place to escape the bustle.
The spa felt clean and rejuvenating, and the staff was very friendly. It was a little less busy over the holidays than it usually is which meant my whole family of 4 could come and relax. Weekend mornings tend to see the most people.
It’s got high ceilings, a bright interior, and a living green wall at the back that reads “(re)fresh (re)new (re)charge.” In the very back, you’ll find massage chairs to help you relax while you wait, and there’s a private room for table massages.
The spa offers a full range of treatments from nail care to massages to facials and even waxing.
I opted for a gel polish Xpres Manicure. They have a good selection of colors to choose from, including some nice neutral pinks, my go-to. My manicurist was skilled and careful in the application, and I had so much fun to chat with her the time went by quickly.
My mother chose a seated back massage to work out all the tension and stress. She said her therapist was good at honing in on tight areas and working to loosen muscles.
Overall the service at XpresSpa is both friendly and professional. They know what they are doing, and they get things done efficiently and effectively.
