I’m in heaven. Actually, I’m not there quite yet but it certainly feels like it. After one and a half hours in the hands of my masseur Apple (yes, that’s her name) I’m more floating than walking.
From I entered The Spa on the first floor at the Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa I knew I was guaranteed quality time in a total stress free zone.
The Spa is decorated with inspiration from the ancient Khmer architecture and consists of a large, beautiful hall that leads to the ten treatment rooms, two of them with sea view. The rooms are spacious couple’s rooms with their own private little garden and outdoor bathtub if you feel like relaxing after or in between treatments.
They offer spa packages, Western therapies to traditional Oriental treatments, body wraps, massages, floral and herbal baths as well as hair and nail studios.
I was recommended to go for The Spa’s signature treatment called ‘Equilibrium Therapy’. With the slogan “putting back a little of what life takes out” I knew I couldn’t go wrong. First, I had to fill out a form where I had to indicate how hard I wanted my massage strokes, if I had health problems, where I wanted the massage to focus on.
My masseur Apple came and introduced herself in English and led me to the beautiful room. I changed to a nice bathrobe and let the relaxation begin.
She started with an exfoliation body scrub explaining that she used a mix of Thai Royal honey and black sesame blended with milk. All the dead skin peeled off and after taking a shower which was in the room as well, my skin was soft as a baby. I felt more than ready for the one hour oil massage that followed. The oil is Hilton’s own brand Wild Mint oil together with a specially created Thai natural herbal pack. Halleluja, it was nice and because of Apple’s English skills she understood every need I had regarding my back and shoulders. After the massage my tensions had left the body and I felt relieved and reborn.
Some things you can’t buy for money. But for 2,500++ for the signature spa ‘Equilibrium Therapy’ it can certainly give you a little piece of heaven.
