Susegad Goa is synonymous with relaxation. Those coming to this sunny state find their own ways of relaxing – while some prefer to just laze on the beach, there are those who prefer to escape into the woods, while others may find their peace on a hilltop.

However, there is a segment of people who want to add style to their relaxation by going to a spa. And, for those who seek the comfort of spas to revive their senses and de-stress themselves, there are a few things to bear in mind.

CHECK THE LICENSE

Verify that the license to operate the spa, or massage parlour, is clearly visible. You can usually find this information on the spa website or by contacting the local health departments.

CHECK ONLINE RATINGS

Look for online ratings of the spa from sources like Google. Here, you will get to see both positive and negative ratings.

VISIT THE WEBSITE

Legal businesses have professional websites with detailed information about their services, prices and contact details. If you don't find the necessary information on the website, be careful!

KNOW EXPERIENCES

Seek information from friends, family or colleagues who have had positive experiences at specific spas or massage parlours.

AVOID THESE SPAS

Be suspicious of massage parlours, or spas, that advertise their services on the street or in public places. Legal businesses typically rely on media and online advertising.

COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW

Make sure the spa is complying with local laws and regulations related to health and safety standards. Unlicensed spas and massage parlours can put your health at risk.
