An Oasis En Pointe

Every single detail of Oasis Spa has been meticulously researched, well thought out, tried, tweaked and perfected. Having been in business for 12 years, the owners of Oasis Spa have visited spas in more countries than most of us have been to, have gathered an impressive array of national as well as international awards, and can now boast 11 spas in Thailand.

Whether you are looking for a day of pampering and relaxation, a sanctuary to escape the frenetic everyday life, or seeking to alleviate fatigue or pain, Oasis Spa promises to deliver.

Oasis Spa Baan Saen Doi Lobby

The moment you walk through the front gate you enter a sanctuary of serenity; trickling and calming water features interspersed by Zen stone pathways all set in a lush tropical garden. The large and cool reception lounge has giant sized sofas, billowing pillows and thick shiny hardwood floors, where you can shed your shoes and slip into a pair of house wooden sandals. Curl up with an aromatic cup of tea and the spa menu to tackle your most challenging moment of the day: choosing which of the many inviting spa packages to treat yourself to. The Lanna music floats along gently, joining with the subtle aromas of crisp mint, instantly releasing any tension carried through the threshold.

Each room is decorated like a five star hotel with amenity boxes for all your spa necessities, as well as to place your belongings in safety.

The light is muted, a towel is placed over your eyes, or if you are starting with your back, a bowl covered with floating flowers placed on the floor underneath, and you can let go of all control and allow the therapist to treat your body like a temple. Your eyes are soothed, your ears are lulled, your nose is teased with fragrance, each oil, scrub or product is temperature-tested before applied to your skin so that every new sensation is gently introduced as the therapist works her magic.

Have a long shower, dry down with a large fluffy towel, spend some time searching for those now relaxed frown lines at the vanity, and with a last look of regret, return to the reception.

Fortunately Oasis Spa’s receptionist understands that you are not yet ready to leave. After all, what’s the rush? Curl back up onto that sofa with another warm cup of fragrant tea and why not have another look at that spa menu to see what you want to experience on your next visit?
