As the first truly luxury lifestyle resort in Hua Hin, the recently opened InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has turned spa therapies into a fine art. The resort’s Spa InterContinental is an elegant sanctuary in which to retreat, relax, and emerge renewed. There are few places better to experience the delights of serious pampering and self-indulgence.
Spa InterContinental’s treatments draw on the best of traditional knowledge from Thailand and other Asian cultures and combine it with leading contemporary practice. The result is a spa philosophy that will undoubtedly see it garner a reputation as one of Hua Hin’s superior centres of wellness and relaxation.
Following a warm and friendly welcome, guests are invited to select a treatment from the extensive spa menu. The staff are happy offer advice as to which of the massages, body services, and signature treatments are best suited to the guest’s disposition and skin type.
Spa facilities include one VIP treatment room, three double treatment rooms with Jacuzzis, three single treatment rooms, a steam room, and nine poolside spa cabanas. The rooms are private and spacious. Decorated with rich teakwood, hand woven fabrics and stylish design accents, relaxation can be enjoyed alone or with a loved one.
Highly recommended is the Oriental Signature Massage, a particularly popular treatment and one of many designed to both relax and reenergize spa guests. After a gentle foot washing with an exfoliating salt scrub, guests simply lie back on the massage bed and let time drift away.
The treatment brings together a fusion of techniques and is designed to enliven the body and ease aching muscles. The masseuse uses long flowing strokes typical of Balinese massage and is known to improve circulation. Swedish deep tissue techniques work the muscles to relieve tension and ease stiffness while traditional shiatsu methods focus on acupressure points. The skilled therapists also work lightly fragranced massage balms into the body to induce further relaxation and to moisturize the skin. As the healing hands work their magic, stress disappears.
The complete 90 minutes treatment is a heavenly experience, perfect in every detail. And with an extensive menu of exotic treatments to choose from, Spa Intercontinental is a haven for spa lovers.
Other options include the Touch of Siam, a massage that focuses on improving blood circulation and promoting muscular flexibility through a sequence of gentle movements to release tension. The stimulating massage also includes the use of a hot poultice packed with aromatic Thai herbs. Applied to the body, the heat and the aroma, evocative of country and culture, pervade the senses and the muscles.
At Spa Intercontinental the only question at the end of the treatment is when to book another.
