Readers’ Choice: Angsana Spa
From our writer: Dark and atmospheric resort spa promises big and delivers on total relaxation. After an herbal tea in the lobby, I was lead to a two-room massage area where I could finish my tea and relax for a few minutes in a large Jacuzzi room with separate toilet and shower. My massage therapist was sensitive to my request to go lightly on my sunburnt flesh and use room temperature oils instead of hot. Agreeing beforehand to the stomach and chest massage meant I was naked for a bit, so opt out of that if you are shy or ticklish. The scalp oil massage was the icing on the cake and I left thoroughly relaxed.
