Oasis Spa Baan Saen Doi

Heaven is a place on earth, and it can be found at Oasis Spa Baan Saen Doi, the renowned spa chain’s latest Chiang Mai locale. From the moment you enter the property, a teakwood palace ripe with Lanna flavour and surrounded by lush gardens, trickling fountains and mountain views, you’ll feel the worries and stresses of daily life fall away. Tucked away in a quiet, tree-lined moo baan off Canal Road, the spa is part of the Baan Saen Doi Spa Resort, which opened late last year. The resort features eleven spacious rooms and suites along with a swimming pool, tennis courts, Thai fusion cuisine and access to the lovely spa facilities across the street. But you don’t have to be a resort guest to book a treatment at the spa. Arrive early and relax with iced tea and a steam bath in their private patio before being ushered into one of five private treatment rooms, equipped with rain showers for a pre-spa cleanse. Choose from a wide variety of luxurious Oasis Spa treatments, including one of their invigorating body scrubs, which will turn your skin baby smooth, or their exclusive Oasis four hand massage, which features two expert therapists massaging in unison and will leave you floating away on a cloud. A variety of spa packages are also available, featuring multiple treatments that can provide up to five hours of bliss and include everything from Moroccan red clay body wraps to traditional East Indian style warm oil massages. Best of all, each treatment room has two tables, so it’s easy to turn your solo experience into a romantic couple’s massage. The spa also has two other branches in Chiang Mai – one on Sirimangkalajarn and one next door to Wat Phra Singh in the Old City. Whichever Oasis you choose, you can guarantee that you’ll emerge renewed, relaxed and totally rejuvenated.
