Holistic Asian healing traditions awaits you at luxury Spa retreats in China, Indonesia, Japan, the Maldives, the Seychelles, Thailand and Mexico…
Banyan Tree Spa History
The story began in 1994 in Phuket, Thailand. The first Luxury Spa opened in a resort in Asia pioneered the tropical garden concept with its Eastern therapies and holistic focus on spiritual, mental and physical harmony. It reintroduced an exotic blend of ancient health and beauty practices which have been passed down from generation to generation.
Like the tropical and sacred tree from which it got its name, the Banyan Tree Spa offers guests a sanctuary for the senses – a place for physical, mental and spiritual renewal. It emphasizes on a ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach that celebrates the human touch and the use of natural herbs and spices.
Around the World
Following its extraordinary success in Phuket, company went on to open more spas in the Maldives, Indonesia, Thailand; the Seychelles, South Korea, China, Vietnam, United Arab Emirates and Morocco. Each spa is designed to fit into its unique surroundings, using indigenous materials to showcase the local culture and heritage and reflect the unique architectural style, the land and its flora. The tropical garden setting not only help guests recall the splendor and serenity of the natural world, but also awakens all their senses, making them more receptive to the healing sense of touch.
The highlight of each spa experience is the training of the therapists. Banyan Tree Spa Academy Phuket was set up in 2001 to train a dedicated group of spa therapists for all the Spas, ensuring high quality service standards and consistency in all its Spas around the world.
We had a pleasure to try the Banyan Tree Spa at Banyan Tree Cabo Marques in Acapulco, Mexico. As you may imagine we both had a lush experience! From the second you step in, your body & mind enters on a different vibe. As a preparation for our massage we had a smoothing footbath, followed by herbal, yet delicious, drinks and warm sesame oil body massage. The treatment is supposed to relax and rejuvenate every cell of your body. A mix of various senses is also used… Simply impossible to describe!
A complete sensory experience awaits you!
