The best way to pamper yourself in Ho Chi Minh City

Are you in desperate need for a spa pamper session? Reconnecting towards yourself again?  One of the most important splurges on a holiday, remains the fact that you’re away from household chores, you normally have more time to think about yourself, and this is a magnificent time to catch up with your pamper sessions. Renewing yourself from the outside!

Spas across Vietnam offer an amazing service of the amazing massages, body wraps, salt glows, body detox sessions, facials, manicures and pedicures… then there’s the hot stone massage, four hand massage, reflexology, shiatsu, Thai massage, Ayurveda massage and the list goes on and on. Oh and then there are also the wellness getaways. More on these later on…

Today we’re looking at spending our dollars the best way in Ho Chi Minh City… we’re sure to feel totally nurtured and nourished by the end of our tour. Bring it on girls/guys.

Spa Intercontinental – this sleek and airy light orchid filled blissful treatment rooms, using Clarins products, by Thai or Vietnam expertly trained beautician and therapists can be described as Contemporary Glam – they offer The Brightening Lotus – one of the most indulgent experiences you can have- for 80 minutes you’ll enjoy the best of our pampering treatments, a green tea exfoliation and silk wrap. You’ll emerge with silky soft, radiant skin and a youthful appearance, and normally for a fraction of what you’d expect to pay ‘back home’.

Xuan Spa, Park Hyatt Saigon is a sanctuary of luxury warmth and tranquility, skillfully designed to inspire the senses and renew the spirit. Re-energize in a Vichy shower room. This is defiantly a pamper spa and one I would personally highly recommend. Amazing, very well trained staff attend to your every whim.

La Maison de L’apothiquaire – stylish, wellness center, using own-brand handmade products imported from Bordeaux for face and body. They even pick you up from your hotel in a vintage car! Talk about Colonial opulence! Soothe body and mind here. You can even enjoy a lunch treat here I recall.

Thann Sanctuary – Thai-tropic retreat with amazing products. Sweet smelling names such as Oriental Essence with Kaffir lime oil with lemongrass… ooh ah! From the moment you step into this Sanctuary all senses will be awakened by their unique holistic spa concept and ambiance. I thoroughly enjoyed my 90minutes hot rock treatment here. I left walking on air – from tip of my feet to the top of my head I had been nourished and nurtured.

Glow Saigon – This very tropical sanctuary with its dark woods and orange accessories offer the tired traveler a place of sanctuary and peace. Escape Saigon’s hustle and bustle for a surprising find in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. Great manicure and pedicure here!

Of course, in Saigon, there are heaps of other therapist and beauty centers; actually on every corner you’ll be given a business card with an invitation of “please Madam… come visit my shop today” I’ve just touched the tip here today… but I also know of a great physio, who will come to your hotel to soothe your travel pains away, a fabulous hairdresser who will get your trusses back to shape after your flight, then there’s the yoga and Thai chi classes you can join in the local park every morning early…

Indeed this is what holidays are all about!

    I would concur about the Park Hyatt Spa, very nice and quite reasonable for a high end hotel.
