The Pavilions In Villa Spa Experience

Spa pleasures are a seamless way of life at The Pavilions, with your villa being a private Spa sanctuary where to indulge with heavenly treatments designed to revive, energize and pamper. mylifestylenews writes……


The Pavilions Spa pleasures are the perfect complement to your retreat, leaving you with a renewed feeling of well being and peacefulness to enjoy the most exclusive pampering in the privacy of your own villa. You can choose from traditional Thai techniques, as well as highly specialized Western Spa rituals, and rejuvenate with their signature oil blends and beauty products, specially created for The Pavilions – all without stepping outside your villa!


We chose the foot massage, combined with an essential oil massage and the Thai massage for a total of two hours each. The oil massage is one of the signature massages that enhance the benefits of their exclusive blend of grapefruit, rosewood, lavender and geranium oil with a combination of Western massage techniques.


The long strokes and flowing movements release stress, while harmonizing and restoring energy, just what you need especially after a long international flight or frenetic airport experience to get to the island. The therapist also was expert in her use of thumb pressure in the sore muscle areas, where she expertly found the knots of muscle and using a very strong pressure with a slow movement was able to ‘untie’ these knotted clumps to our relief.


There was a request for medium pressure and such request felt truly given, resulting in a wonderful after spa feeling and the last half hour was an exhilarating foot massage. We had done a lot of walking in sandals and our feet were sorely in need of some pampering to restore all those important touch points. This was a foot massage to be reckoned with, which also aided putting a spring back into our step with some expert pressure work in all those tired areas – never underestimate what a good foot massage can do for you and yes, there can be some uncomfortable moments when ironing out some stressed tendons and muscles in your feet, but boy is it worth it and this one was ‘just what the doctor ordered’.


The Thai Massage is a traditional oil-free massage based on Thai techniques using palm strokes and thumb pressure along the energy lines of the body. Stretching and manipulation releases tension, promoting flexibility and mobility through medium to strong pressure. The request for a very strong pressure was definitely delivered resulting in a great feeling of euphoria at the end.


The great thing about this in-room massage session was that they truly set up a full-blown spa within your villa – the secret is that they store proper massage tables in every villa and offer you a professional experience within the private confines of your own villa and the after spa relaxing can be determined by you with all your villa amenities on hand. Such option without cutting any corners is ideal and truly a bonus offers by The Pavilions.
