Finally, the last part of our Phuket getaway about Spa!

Spas can be broadly categorized into three pricing categories. The more expensive spas are usually housed within a resort/hotel and offer more comprehensive services from massages, to facials, scrubs, wraps, pedicure and manicure. Prices are about 2500 baht and up per hour.

Then there are the mid-range ones such as Chadasai Spa, usually independent establishments located in town areas, offering full-fledged or partial spa treatment services. Prices are about 1000 baht and up per hour.

The most value-for-money types are those small massage salons or beach huts which offer limited types of services, usually foot, head and shoulder, thai or aroma massage. Prices are quite competitive, around 300 baht and up.

There are only a handful of massage salons at Naithon Beach and most of them looked a little dodgy. So when we rented our motorbike we decided to venture to Bangtao area since it's a bigger town with more shops. As we were riding around, we came across several spas/massage salons but neither of them appealed to us. And out of the blue, we chanced upon this modern looking spa, Chadasai Spa and decided to give it a try.

Shopfront looked bright and inviting.

Spa reception. We were lucky there were slots available for us immediately.

Simple soft furnishings with a touch of earthy look. We were served iced water with cold towel while selecting the type of treatment.

We decided on a one-hour aroma massage which focused on the back and shoulder area. Five different massage oil to choose from. I selected green tea whereas hubby like rice.

I love the soothing colours which was relaxing and soothing to the eyes.

We were first led to an inner room and given a foot bath by our therapists.

Our spa treatment room. Clean and neat, and the massage beds were quite sturdy. Initially the room was all quiet and I was thinking why no music? The music was only turned on halfway through our massage -_-

The skills of the therapists were satisfactory, although not the best skills we have been experienced.

This was another massage area, we presumed for foot massage.

After the treatment, we were served a nice hot cup of herbal tea.

Overall, we were quite satisfied with the overall service quality and standard, although the skills of the therapists could be further enhanced.

That's all for our Phuket trip. What will our next trip take us? Stay tuned!
