    Spa Treatments

    Recommended is the Thai Herbal Infusion Ritual, a luxurious balancing treatment that begins with a welcoming foot cleanse and renewing full body exfoliation. The massage that follows uses warm essential oils and herbal poultices with acupressure movements to either invigorate with herbs of Ginger, Lemongrass and Kaffir Lime, or balance with Jasmine, Peppermint and Clove, to restore the flow of energy through the body. While these temperate poultices are placed to warm the muscles, a hands-on massage will ease away tension.
    An ESPA express facial will then cleanse with cool compress techniques, helping to tone and firm the skin while the oriental scalp massage using traditional Prai oil to condition the hair and scalp, completes this heavenly treatment.
