Divana Spa Review

Monday, June 12, 2017

I consider myself somewhat of an expert when it comes to massages and spas.  Living 5 years in South East Asia and sampling the best Balinese deep tissue massage on a birthday trip to Indonesia and experiencing Thai massage at some of Bangkok’s most renowned establishments, I always enjoy it, but perhaps have become a bit of a massage snob!  There are usually elements I critique and improvements that can be made or service that is sub-par.
Usually!

….not so with our experience at Divana Spa!  My husband and I left exclaiming it was “the best massage we’d ever had”.  (and he does not impress easily!)  They have raised the bar in all aspects; customer service, quality for money and luxury of treatment.

With nearly 10 locations to their name, Divana keeps expanding but is un-compromised in their commitment to quality and excellence!  Their newest establishment, the “Nurture Spa” is located in the heart of Asok.  With shuttle service directly from the BTS, your every need is catered to and you can relax from the moment you step into the spa tuk tuk.  Tucked away from the hub-bub of the area, you’ll find a converted old Thai residential home that has been beautifully renovated in classic Thai style as an oasis, combining elements of light, water and nature to create a sensory exhilarating experience that will relax both mind and body.  You’ll find the lotus flower (a symbol of longevity and youth) incorporated subtly throughout the decor, the scents and the treatments.

En suite bathrooms offer guests every comfort and personal privacy.  14 double rooms and 2 tripe rooms make up an extensive spa offering 34 beds, each with modern amenities and individual steam room/showers.  Staff is exceptionally trained and clearly have undergone a vetting process ensuring guests receive treatments provided only by qualified professionals.

We opted for the Longevity Phikat Bua half-day treatment making our visit more of a “retreat” than just a massage.  Unhurried, we were pampered and polished, scrubbed and massaged, reminded to slow down, to breathe a little deeper, to tune out the busyness of life, to enjoy the moment and to rest!  Exfoliation and collagen gel hot compress rendered me completely relaxed and the steam room was invigorating.  Half way through our treatments, we were offered tea and refreshments and Im not going to lie, sleep found me half way through the last portion of the oil thai massage and hot stone therapy.  Alas, all things must come to an end and the reality that I have seven little ones waiting for me to come home and fix dinner meant our visit had to end.  However, a little slice of heaven came home with my by way of Divana’s signature scent collection.  Products on sale following your treatment allow you to pocket a bit of pampering for later!

This is the spot to request a gift-certificate to for your next birthday or Mother’s Day.
