YTL Hotels Announces the Grand Opening of Spa Village Koh Samui. YTL Hotels is excited to announce the grand opening of Spa Village Koh Samui. Situated within The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui, Spa Village Koh Samui is the latest addition to YTL Hotels’ Spa Village Collection.
Inspired by the island’s natural beauty and its rich history of coconut plantations, visitors to Spa Village Koh Samui are greeted by a striking coconut husk chandelier in the spa’s entrance. The Spa Village’s signature treatment, the Coconut Heritage Treatment, infuses locally grown coconuts to enhance the spa experience, beginning with a full body scrub using coconut meat and walnuts, followed by a coconut flow massage with Virgin Coconut oils. The signature treatment concludes with a nourishing Coconut Hair Masque.
Using age-old Thai healing practices, Spa Village Koh Samui integrates therapeutic properties from natural local ingredients to create a holistic and rejuvenating spa program. Inspired by the annual Songkran Thai New Year festival, the spa features a pre-ritual Songkran Shower treatment, which begins on a specially designed rain shower table, followed by a refreshing rinse and a brief body cleansing using raw coconut husk pads. The Songkran Shower concludes with the spa therapists actually “throwing” perfumed water from a ceremonial bowl over the guest as a final rinse. According to Melissa Mettler, the Spa Consultant for YTL Hotels, “Water plays an important role for us at Spa Village. As a fundamental element in health and vitality throughout time and culture, water symbolizes cleansing, purification, and new beginnings.”
Nestled amid lush vegetation and crystal clear turquoise waters, Spa Village Koh Samui blends the tropical charm of Koh Samui with the tranquility of a luxurious spa, offering a sanctuary in a private sun-kissed bay in the Gulf of Thailand. Occupying its own section of the resort, the 41,000 square-foot spa features its own infinity pool with intimate cabanas that overlook eight treatment suites and three open-air massage pavilions, encircling a large rock pond.
The spa menu features a wide assortment of additional treatments, massages and therapies for guests, such as the Blessed Flowers treatment, which begins with a tableside mixing of raw flowers, nourishing aloe and fruit enzymes. Warmed flower infused compresses gently hydrate the skin in preparation for a flower balance massage utilizing strong rhythmical strokes along energy meridians. The Thai Aquatic Freedom therapy is another option that offers guests the opportunity to experience weightlessness in the spa’s aqua therapy pool. While floating in the water, a series of stretches soften the muscles, relieve stiff joints and quiet the mind.
The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui is comprised of 58 oceanfront acres and features 175 suites and pool villas, with a wide variety of recreational, culinary and wellness activities inspired by the rich cultural heritage of Koh Samui.
