Six months after the Life Heritage Resort Hoi An
reopened with a fresh, Tropical Asian Modern design, the old town resort has opened the doors on a new facility
- a revitalised Life Spa.
Throughout its first several years of
operation, the riverside resort’s Life Spa operated in a cabana setting
between the banks of the Thu Bon and the resort’s pool. This month, the
expanded Life Spa debuts four new treatments rooms and a spa menu that
borrows more than a few pages from its acclaimed sister resort in Quy
“Remarkably enough, this will be the first spa of
international standing in the old town,” said Chris Duffy, general
director of Life Resorts. “Now, for both guests and visitors alike,
there is the opportunity to walk the historic old district and top off
the effort with a world-class spa treatment. It’s a winning combination
— heritage and wellness.”
Life Resorts operates two
wholly-owned resorts in Vietnam, the Hoi An property and the Life
Wellness Resort Quy Nhon, and manages the Blue Ocean Resort on the south
central coast in Phan Thiet. The Dutch company is also developing
resorts in Ninh Binh, Danang and Ha Long Bay.
In Hoi An,
the Life Spa’s treatments range from a plethora of wellness options, to
cleansing rituals, skin treatments and a suite of beautification
The signature treatment is an 80-minute fusion
of seven techniques, known as the ‘Harmony of Energy’.
The spa features
several 30-minute express treatments, and a clutch of healing treatments
that include hot stone therapies, aromatic oils and foot reflexology.
The spa offers two exfoliating treatments, using green tea,
sea salt and ginger. Two additional skin treatments leverage the
replenish powers of mud, and the moisturizing properties of honey.
The Life Spa’s facials constitute the most extensive range
of protocols on the new menu, with seven opportunities to rejuvenate the
fatigued countenance. The new spa’s sunken terrazzo tubs have been
designed for baths of flowers, coconut milk and Vietnamese herbs.
“In Quy Nhon, the Life Spa is a perennial favorite in
international wellness competitions,” said Duffy. “Although our focus in
Hoi An is on the area’s rich heritage, we had nothing to lose by
importing tried and true treatments from Vietnam’s premier wellness
Like the resort itself, the Life Spa’s
décor reflects a tropical Asian modern design, featuring an earthen
color palate, timbers and a floor of bamboo parquet. The treatment beds
themselves are blue and black with an almost metallic finish.
