Centara opens first stand-alone Spa Cenvaree in Goa

Centara Hotels&Resorts of Thailand will open its first stand-alone Spa Cenvaree during the first quarter of 2012, to be located at the Arcon Arcade in Goa, India.

Spa Cenvaree, a Centara brand, is to be found at Centara hotels and resorts throughout Thailand, and at overseas properties that include the Philippines, Vietnam, and the Maldives.

“Spa Cenvaree has been enormously successful in all of its in-hotel locations, and we are convinced this is the right time to introduce an independent branch,” said Suthikiati Chirathivat, Chairman of the Executive Board of Central Plaza Hotel Public Co Ltd., “Goa presents us with the perfect opportunity.”

Located at the beach resort of Candolim, in northern Goa, the new Spa Cenvaree is set within the lifestyle and shopping complex of Arcon Arcade.

As the premier spa in the region, the menu treatments place great emphasis on the innate wisdom of the body and blending the finest elements of native herbs with massage to provide guests a unique Thai spa experience.

Among the range of experiences is the Spa Cenvaree Signature massage, which brings together a blend of Ayurvedic, Thai, Swedish, Shiatsu, and reflexology techniques paired with medicinal heat compress, resulting in a ritual that harmonizes the body’s energies.

Other treatments on offer include Ayurveda healing, traditional Thai massage, hot-stone therapy, and foot reflexology. For a more contemplative experience, guests may choose the multi-day spa retreats, focusing on detox, de-stress, and emotional balance.

Couples may share their experience in complete privacy with programs personalized for him and for her.

Seasonal therapies such as the Winter Recharge and Summer Best packages are created to counter the effects of seasonal change on the body, mind, and spirit.
