Vana Belle, A Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
Vana Spa at the Vana Belle, A Luxury Collection Resort in Koh Samui is inspired by the mythical ethos of the East and mystics of the legendary forest Himavanta (pronounced as Hi-ma-pan). Not your average resort spa, Vana Spa provides a realm of healing and revitalization through treatments that soothe the senses, complemented by the fauna and flora mirrored from the Himavanta forest. The four treatment rooms pay homage to four of Thai mythology’s most virtuous heroines – Manorah, Matthana, Rodjana and Busaba. Here, skillful therapists use only the most premium blends and ingredients to pamper you into blissful rejuvenation.
Zen Resort Bali, North Bali

These include Ayurvedic-inspired spa treatments, alongside traditional Balinese body treatments, sunrise and sunset meditation or yoga exercises, and tailored trips to some of the less-explored spiritual attractions in North Bali. The interesting thing about Zen is it ventures into recreational ‘harmony’ as part of the holistic experience, including diving and snorkelling.
