There’s no better way to relax and blow of some steam than to be pampered and taken care of in an all-inclusive spa. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of luxury spas around Southeast Asia, but here we’ve picked our favourites and the ones that come most highly recommended.
There’s no better way to unwind than a relaxing massage.
First up is Vietnam. Starting in the south, La Maison de l'Apothiquaire is a truly top-of-the-line spa experience, sure to leave your guests with a deep feeling of relaxation and satisfaction. For a more all-inclusive experience, nothing compares to Pilgrimage Village. Located in the idyllic countryside near Hue, the resort is peacefully isolated from the outside world, yet near enough the city to make sightseeing easy. Further north, in Hanoi, Thu Cuc Exotical Spa comes highly recommended, set on the shore of Truch Bach Lake, and featuring some very serene and elegant décor.
In Laos, Luang Prabang is the epicentre of the country’s luxury scene. Situated deep in the forested hills, Sense Spa provides an incredibly serene atmosphere while guests are pampered through traditional Laotian healing techniques. Within the city, Amantaka is the clear stand-out, as the change in the air is palpable when you cross from the busy streets into the serene sanctuary created here.
Enjoy some relaxation amidst gorgeous scenery.
If you’re looking for a way to let guests experience the ruins of Angkor Wat while also residing in luxury, then Amansara in Siem Reap has what you’re looking for. Making use of ancient Khmer techniques, the resort offers a great balance between experiencing Cambodian culture and having every need tended to.
Morning yoga at Amatara Wellness Resort in Phuket.
Meanwhile, in Thailand, Phuket has firmly claimed the title of resort and spa destination number one. Set amidst the plantations and forested hills north of the city, the atmosphere in these places is relaxed and down to earth, yet incredibly luxurious. Most highly recommended among these are Amatara Wellness Resort and Amanpuri, where you can even rent entire villas, should your group include families.
A spa package to Southeast Asia is a great way to experience pampering in a resort or spa while also offering various cultural, authentic and exotic experiences and activities.
