Stepping into the spa is like stepping into another realm where the outside world ceases to exist. The soft blue lighting and use of incense and various other features work together to create a womb-like oasis of indulgent relaxation that serves as the ultimate escape.

Besides aesthetic beauty, the focus at the spa is on achieving a sense of balance and holistic wellness. As such, modern techniques are combined with ancient wisdom for the best possible results, such as the foot treatment using smooth stones with which each treatment commences.
