Banyan Tree Krabi Opens Spa with Hydrotherapy Facility

(19 Jan 2021)
Banyan Tree Krabi has opened a spa which boasts a
hydrotherapy facility and eight treatment rooms, each of which has
been fitted with coloured lighting designed to help enhance the
wellbeing of each individual customer.

The luxury resort is located in the northernmost
corner of Tubkaek Beach, a 45-minute drive from Krabi International
Airport, and some 20 km north of the main tourist areas of Railay
and Ao Nang.

A freshwater stream winds downhill from Naga Crest
Hill into the property where Banyan Tree’s innovative design team
has sculpted a beautiful tropical canal to ferry the springwater
to the sea. The rush of water is a recurrent sight and sound at
the 10-acre resort, where guests are constantly treated to
the trickle of streams or the cascading of waterfalls, from the
spectacular water feature gracing the lobby to a small waterpark
for kids.


And nowhere is the element of water accentuated
more than at the 500 sqm pavilion of Banyan Tree Spa Krabi, host
to The Rainforest (pictured), a maze of hydrotherapeutic stations, including
a steam room and sauna, ice fountain, jet pool, and an array of waterjets designed to simultaneously stimulate and soothe the body
and mind.

Among the massage options available to guests
and visiting customers is the lava shell treatment, which begins with
a body wrap of pearl powder followed by a special technique created
exclusively at Banyan Tree Krabi using a heated lava shell.

“Pearl powder contains trace minerals and is high in calcium,
which is conducive to healthy skin,” said spa manager Bussayawan
Chanchai. “And the effect of massaging it into the muscles with a
hot lava shell is ideal for relieving tension and stiffness.”

Bussayawan heads a team of therapists each thoroughly versed
in the Banyan Tree brand of wellbeing. She previously studied a
Science Program in Integrative Medicine where she discovered the
benefits of colour therapy, which she has now adapted at Banyan
Tree Spa Krabi.

“We chat with each client when they check
in and ask how they are feeling,” Bussayawan said. “Someone who has come
from a cold climate may well be recommended red lighting, which
boosts energy and increases warmth. Those who have just had a long
flight or have not been sleeping well could be offered blue. We
also have white, green and yellow lighting, and each helps to
immerse the guest in an ambience that will create positive energy
and benefit their health.”
