Kradung-nga Srisuthum (Kradung-nga), Spa Manager, Royal Paradise Hotel and Spa, recently invited the phuketindex team to visit her and her team at Paradise Thai Spa. Kradung-nga was kind enough to tell us about the spa and invited us to try one of their spa specials, The Paradise Package.
Kradung-nga explained “Our spa is the ultimate spa for treatments and relaxation. Paradise Thai Spa is the ideal place for luxurious aromatherapy treatments. Our guests come to be pampered and leave invigorated from the ultimate spa experience. Here, we have designed combinations of the most popular spa therapies to suit everybody’s needs; some of our therapies have been developed from traditional practices passed through generations, while others are the latest therapeutic techniques.

The facilities on offer at Paradise Thai Spa include 10 luxurious seats for foot reflexology massage, 16 luxurious rooms for traditional Thai massage, 2 private spa suites for luxurious treatment with individual Jacuzzi pools, 2 private spa suites for individual treatments & body oil massages, 2 separate aromatic herbal steam rooms for both ladies and gentlemen, 2 separate aromatic sauna rooms for both ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentleman’s changing rooms and lockers for keep your belonging safe.
The first step, as always with spa treatments, is to change clothes in the allocated treatment room. You are then advised to take a 15 minute session in either the steam room or sauna, which ever you personally prefer.
It’s was then time to return to the treatment room, where Kradung-nga had arranged a relaxing massage which was to be performed using different types of massage oil. These oils are selected to match the elements in the body. There are 4 elements air, fire, earth and water. This massage is spectacular and lasts for 1 hour 30 minutes.
The final treatment in the Paradise Package is a full all over body scrub, which is performed using a paste made with a mixture of fresh yogurt, carrot juice, ground coffee powder, oats and Thanakha powder, and takes 45 minutes.
After the treatment my body felt so relaxed and refreshed and due to the body scrub my skin was left feeling smoother and softer than prior to the treatment.
Kradung-nga then spent a little time extra with us to explain another treatment which is available at Paradise Spa. This treatment is called The White Mud Rub. This all over body rub is performed using a paste made with a mixture of charcoal powder, white clay filler and warm water; it lasts for 1 hour 30 minute. The two ingredients which make up the paste have there own beneficial properties, charcoal is used to help absorb toxins from the skin and the white clay filler is used as it leaves the surface of the skin soft and moist. The treatment ends with some time in the Jacuzzi. This cost of this treatment is 500 Baht per hour.
Paradise Spa @ Royal Paradise Resort and Spa is open daily from 10.00 am – 22.00 pm
