Six Senses Spas has unveiled Vietnamå‘s first international standard spa facility at Ana Mandara Evason Hideaway at Nha Trang, Vietnam å- this is the countryå‘s first beach resort.
Located alongside the beach in a coconut plantation, the holistic Six Senses Spa sets new standards in spa design, with the use of natural tones and finishes blended with traditional Vietnamese style and water elements. The spa has created two sunken outdoor treatment salas surrounded by pools to enhance the therapeutic environment.
Inside the spa, there are treatment rooms for couples or singles, with sunken Jacuzzi baths, a Vichy shower and a Japanese-style bath. With separate facilities for men and women, the ‘back to nature’ changing areas are surrounded by lush vegetation with saunas and steam rooms. Traditional Vietnamese-style salas, positioned over the feature fish pond and surrounded by coconut trees, are used for private consultations and rest areas.
The Six Senses Spa presents an impressive range of treatment techniques inspired by both the East and the West, including a selection of unique massages, face and body care, mind and body balancing and beauty care with expert therapists that provide a wealth of experience. For more physical pursuits and fitness regimes, the spa offers a small gymnasium plus yoga and exercise classes.
The Six Senses Spa at Ana Mandara Evason Hideaway is the most recent addition to the Six Senses Spas currently operating in some of the world’s most exotic resorts, such as Soneva Resorts in the Maldives and the Evason Resorts in Phuket and Hua Hin Thailand. These Spas have been awarded ‘One of the Top Three Spas in the World’ by the readers of Conde Nast Traveller, UK., and ‘Best Spa Group 2002’ by the readers of TTG Asia.
The luxury boutique Ana Mandara Evason Hideaway has 16 villas offering a total of 68 rooms, each with its own covered terraces and modern amenities. It is located on the beach overlooking Nha Trang Bay and is set in 20,000 sq-m of private tropical gardens.
The name “ana mandara” in the ancient Cham language of Vietnam means “beautiful home for guests” and in that spirit, the resort is reminiscent of an old Vietnamese village, furnished with native wood and rattan.
Sonu Shivdasani, Chairman and CEO of Six Senses, comments, “All Six Senses Spas aim to provide a truly relaxing and revitalising experience and offer therapeutic treatments to rejuvenate the senses. Spas have already proved extremely appealing at resorts elsewhere in Asia, and we’re delighted to introduce the concept to such a fast-emerging tourism market as Vietnam”.
The Ana Mandara Resort is owned by Hai Duong Tourist Company (HDTC) and managed by Bangkok-based Six Senses Hotels, Resorts & Spas and is branded in the group’s five-star Evason Hideaway category.
Six Senses is a Hotel and Resort Management and Development Company, established in 1995, which owns the award-winning Soneva Fushi Resort and manages hotels and resorts under the brand names Soneva and Evason.
