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 Nhon.

“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 classics.

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 destination.”

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.
