 Indulge the Senses at Vara Spa“Peacefully but Conveniently located on the west coast of island I’ve just discovered a real hidden gem amidst the hustle and bustle of Patong.

Only a few minutes walk from the mega shopping complex at Jungceylon nestles a quiet oasis, the Sawaddi Patong Resort, where the beautiful Vara Spa is to be found. Situated just off the main pool area of the resort, which affords lovely views of the surrounding hillsides, you enter a peaceful world of discreet opulence.

Soft music and seductive scents greet you and the attentive staff, led by Khun Rosanat (Gay) the Spa Manager and Khun Da the Spa Supervisor, guide you through your chosen session. Lots of treatments are on offer including choices of traditional Thai, Swedish or special sports massages and a wide selection of body scrubs and oils (hot and cold) that make every spa session a truly individual experience. Whether you are suffering the after-effects of the tropical sun, or just the travel weariness of all that shopping and good living, Vara Spa has a perfect solution for all that ails you.

All the products used at the spa are derived from nature and celebrate the healing herbs and plants of Thailand. Most of them sound good enough to eat too and it was a delight to explore all the possibilities.

I settled upon 2.5 hours of deliciousness, opting for the ‘Thai Essence’ treatment, which is a special offer from the Spa (Thai Baht 1,995) and really great value for money! The delightful spa treatment rooms incorporate an herbal steam room, full bathroom, Jacuzzi and two very comfortable massage tables. Subtle lighting and cool music enhances the ambience and makes the experience both very private and very restful – the perfect atmosphere for couples or lone travelers looking for a calm, spiritual retreat.

varaspa3Starting with a 15 minute herbal steam bath and a cooling shower we proceeded to a 30 minute body scrub. Sesame, oats and tamarind essence were expertly applied in order to clean and smooth the skin and I could really feel an immediate difference to my skin texture. Another cleansing shower, more big white, luffy towels and I was   ready for the next process. Traditional Thai massage is now known the world over and the lovely girls at Vara Spa are well trained in this ancient art. Using aromatherapy oils for this one hour treatment they managed to reach and ease those old aches and pains, sooth my troubled brow and leave me weak at the knees and ready for more.


My last treatment in this great package  was a very expert facial that the Spa calls ‘Queen of Plants Essence’. It was a totally relaxing hour of gentle massage and soothing products, including an icy cold cucumber paste, herbal steaming and numerous mouth-watering lotions that cleansed and nourished my tired skin. A marvelously refreshing experience that left my skin feeling so much smoother and looking so much brighter – an amazing difference.

So there I was, two and a half hours later, weak at the knees, relaxed in composure, feeling definitely lighter and brighter and being fed butter cookies and delicious herbal teas by the Spa’s attentive staff. What a perfect way to spend a relaxing few hours in Paradise!
