Pattaya is all about sun, sea and entertainment. Whether you are living here or visiting as a tourist, hitting the various attractions means that physical activity and movement is often unavoidable. If you are not walking all day on the beach in the sun, enjoying water sports or playing golf, then you could be at the gym working out after a long day.
All this can leave you feeling tired and strained and, in the case of sun-worshipers, with burnt and reddened skin.
Fortunately there are a few establishments that know the real art of reviving and rejuvenating your body. One of them is Devarana Spa at the Dusit Thani Hotel Pattaya, which has just launched its “Post Workout Revival” package.
A fully equipped private and spacious massage room for a true pampering spa experience at Devarana.
This Devarana signature massage combines the great eastern traditions and the more recent western methods, paying heed to small details. Eastern massage therapies primarily focus on clearing and balancing the energy pathways of the body, whereas western methods treat tissue such as muscles, tendons and joints as well as major organs. The strong pressures of Ayurvedic and Shiatsu massage are seamlessly blended and softened by Swedish and aromatherapy techniques.

The massage begins with Ayurvedic techniques that encourage awareness of the powerful energies known as Kundalini, which reside at the base of the spine. By gently releasing the pelvic girdle it releases tension often held here.
Following this, aromatic hot compresses are placed on the entire length of the back while the therapist applies thumb pressures on the muscles on either side of the spine, preparing the body for the deep oil massage that follows.
Fingers, toes, limbs and torso are stretched, pulled and rotated to release joints and unblock energy pathways, muscles are kneaded and pressed, and amidst it all are soothing Swedish and aromatherapy massage strokes. This is one of the most relaxing and unique massages you’re likely to experience. You are deeply relaxed and clear headed after a 90 minute session.
Wipada Tuenwong shows off various scents of massage oil, from lavender to chamomile to lemon grass, all to suit your needs and mood.
Following the massage, the therapist will apply a cooling Aloe Vera gel mask on your face which soothes and revives tired and sun burnt skin. The treatment ends with a warm detoxifying coffee and herbal bath for 30 minutes, and finishes off with a cold rain shower that immediately livens up and tones the skin.
These luxurious pampering and healing treatments are offered in a soothing and stress-relieving environment. The contemporary Thai design and decor invites guests to transcend their everyday world and provides a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere in which you can enjoy premium spa treatments with traditional Thai service and hospitality.
