Newly opened in March at the Centara Chaan Talay Resort and Villas Trat, the Spa Cenvaree is housed in a cluster of thatched-roof treatment pavilions set amidst lush jungle. The décor concept is based on nature and simplicity, reflecting the natural surroundings and the use of herbs and ancient therapies. The spa features three private couple pavilions, a meditation hall for meditative exercises, and an open-air beach sala.
The newest Spa Cenvaree is the flagship outlet, due to be opened in June 2008 at the Centara Grand at CentralWorld, in Bangkok, and representing an investment of 45 million Baht. Featuring ultra-contemporary Thai interiors reflecting the hotel’s design concept based on the four elements of Earth, Fire, Air and Water, the spa has 14 stylish treatment rooms.
Basing its philosophy in age-old therapies, Spa Cenvaree at the Centara Grand is also technology driven, with the newest hydro facilities, an infrared sauna, and science-based slimming technologies amongst the facilities.
