Signature Spa Treatments – Not to be missed in Phuket

Amidst the island’s relaxing atmosphere, when you are away from business matters and forget all that is waiting in your mailbox, a pampering spa experience will make your Phuket escape or life here even more special.  When you are about to choose, why not choose the best? Here we feature some signature spa treatments that totally turn off any stress and leave you with an invigorated body, uplifted mind and free spirit instead.

Six Senses: Holistic & Oriental


There are two Six Senses’ popular massages any spa goer should never miss once you have a chance.  Remember. ‘Holistic Massage’ is a 50 minute tailor-made therapeutic full body and scalp massage including face reflexology that uses long, slow, firm stroking movements to squeeze out all stress from every muscle and quietly send you into a deep state of relaxation – a nice choice for a beginner. While ‘Oriental Massage’ is an integrative style of full body massage with acupressure and stretching techniques, compared to ‘Holistic Massage’ this is considered a little tougher but gives a stronger impact on muscular and tissue tension relief.

For Phuketindex readers, the ‘Peace Loving Package’ features a choice of Body Massage (choose from ‘Holistic’ or ‘Oriental’ 50 Minutes) plus a Nourishing Facial 50 Minutes for total of 2.30 hours, now in a special offer at 4,300 Baht Net/ Person.

Palm Spa: Herbal Luxury & Siam Traditions

Among over forty kinds of treatment available on its spa menu, Palm Spa recommends ‘Herbal Luxury’ and ‘Siam Tradition’. The combination of a Swedish massage technique and hot herbal compress describes their ‘Herbal Luxury’ treatment.

During 90 minutes, your muscles will be warmed to ease tension and then Swedish moves will allow your body to absorb more oxygen and help drain toxin from lymph nodes. For a full-body pampering and authentic Thai experience, ‘Siam Traditions’ may be what you are looking for. It is a 3-hour treatment especially designed for couples – an absolute must for travelers. An Asian Herbal Exfoliation will be followed by a Traditional Thai Massage and Nature’s Dream Facial. Herbal tea and a selection of tropical fruits will be served at completion.

Gently exfoliate, nurture and let your skin glow with a cool spa’s signature ‘Sweet Mango Delight’. The freshly-made scrub combines the meat of sweet ripe mango, natural yoghurt and local mint containing high vitamin A, B & C together with minerals and anti-oxidants. It helps remove dead skin cells and waste which is the cause of skin dullness, as well as improve blood circulation.

The treatment will bring health back to your skin and leave it clear, clean and moisturized. Mint aroma helps boost the mood and reduce fatigue.

After an entire week of exhaustion, Sri panwa Serenity will be a well deserved and relaxing treat. It is an aromatherapy massage which will help relieve muscular stiffness, remove blockage of blood and energy flow and allow the nervous system to fully function and that is the way your body goes into relaxation.

Mandara Spa: Four Hand Massage

The magic happens when two talented therapists work together in rhythmic harmony to keep you from worrying about what is going on outside the closed door and escort you to the goal line whether your aim is for relaxation, muscle tension relief or pampering.

The 90 minute head-to-toe massage combines techniques from five different massage styles; Japanese Shiatsu, Thai Massage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Swedish and Balinese. Its signature blended essential oils will calm you down and assist in promoting total relaxation and wellness. Hot lemongrass tea brings you back to the ground in a pleasing end.

Anantara Spa: Pearl of Andaman


Much like the Eastern lotus flower, a symbol of spiritual unfolding, this journey revitalizes your whole being from the toes up. It takes a full two hours to complete, beginning with Anantara’s floral foot ritual for foot cleansing, following by a traditional Chinese herbal back massage to clear the meridians so your energy flows freely and finishing with a nourishing anti-ageing ‘Pearl Facial’ to boost circulation for enhanced elasticity and radiance. Of course finish with a refreshment at the end.
