Tai Chi Pavilion
This beautiful seaside pavilion is used for morning Tai Chi, yoga and for other private sessions.
A warm water private pool is specifically used for Watsu® sessions. Developed by a Shiatsu therapist, Watsu® is a treatment that relaxes the body and mind at the same time. Our therapist holds you in the water in a relaxed state while gently stretching your limbs to improve flexibility and mobility.
Try to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment, so that you can enjoy the rejuvenating freshness of our water therapy and relaxation areas.
You will be given a locker for your personal belongings and receive a spa dressing gown before being guided through to the water therapy area, where cleansing and restorative treatments such as sauna, steam room, plunge pool and Jacuzzi await you. Alternatively, you can just relax on a heated waterbed or a daybed as you sip water or lemongrass tea.
Contraction and expansion of the circulatory system helps to detoxify and relax the muscles. Guests should alternate between the dry heat of the infrared sauna to warm the muscles, the wet heat of the steam room to open up the respiratory system and finally, the plunge pool to lower the body temperature, to maximise any effects. Guests with blood pressure concerns should consult a Health and Wellness advisor prior to treatment.
Three outdoor, but enclosed, treatment rooms provide Oil Massage and Thai Massage for those who prefer the natural warmth of the day.
Our experienced stylists are here to offer you a wide range of hair services, from a basic wash and blow dry and cutting and colouring to luxury hair and nail treatments.
Niranlada Medi-Spa complements our traditional approach to overall wellness by offering the latest treatments using modern aesthetic technology and micro-invasive cosmetic surgery. An initial consultation utilising VISIA 3–dimensional computerised facial imaging and colour photography helps our experts evaluate your current skin condition and determine which treatments are best suited for you.
Private sessions, exercise classes and recreational swimming takes place in the shade of our indoor bathing pavilion. In this space, a temperature controlled 20-metre pool, steam room, Jacuzzi, cold plunge pool, daybeds, Kneipp foot massage and male and female changing rooms await you.
Our 20-metre outdoor pool is maintained by an environmentally friendly saltwater chlorination system. You can enjoy a swim or just relax on one of the many sun beds available poolside. Our attentive pool staff will keep you refreshed with cold towels and beverages to keep your hydration up and body temperature down.
