Excellent spa in natural setting

Reviewed August 9, 2012 NEW My hubby and I had a short weekend stay @ the resort. The spa was the reason for our resort choice. It really exceeded my expectation. This is my first spa visit to a spa set amidst a river setting and the ambience/atmosphere was great. I loved spas set in natural environment setting, it really enhances the spa experience.

The couple spa villa was spacious, set in a Balinese villa with high ceiling, open yet private, with a small river running beside it. The feeling of having a massage with the sound of rushing river waters is absolutely therapeutic. The masseurs were also very skillful. We took up the spa package with came with a couple massage/scrub and a 2 course dinner - very value for money for such an excellent spa/location.

We stayed in a deluxe room. The resort setting is nice, with lush spacious greenery and rice field views from our room. However, I feel the rooms are overpriced, as they look very aged, the floor tiles were marred and furniture look really jaded. The breakfast buffet selection was also very minimal, and surprisingly, not much Asian selections - food was mediocre.

Overall, would still recommend the resort for those who enjoy spa treatments as it's really a unique river spa experience. Best spa I enjoy (better than Andaman @ Langkawi, my next favourite)
