Chomp visited V Villas Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan and experienced the property's hospitality. During our stay, we got to try the property's spa, V Spa. The spa is relatively compact, comprising three treatment rooms decorated in blended contemporary and Thai styles.
Before we dive into V Spa's highlight treatment with Chomp, let's talk about your thoughts on balm. Typically, balms can be sticky, heavy, and uncomfortable. What if Chomp tells you that V Spa's balm is lightweight, stainless, and easily absorbed? Would you be interested and keep reading this article to learn more?
V Spa has a signature programme called V Signature Candle Blam Massage. This signature massage was designed to relieve customers' stress and soothe tired muscles by combining aromatic and deep-tissue massaging techniques.
After arriving at the spa, your therapist will welcome you with some chilled drink and ask you to sit and dip your feet into a brass bowl filled with warm water with floating rose petals. The therapist will rinse your feet with water before scrubbing them with pineapple salt scrub called Detoxifying Scrub.
As soon as the therapist finishes that process, you will be led to your therapy room and start the session. The therapist will light the candle balm until it melts, then warm the melted balm with the therapist's palms before applying it to your skin through effleurage, petrissage and friction to relax soft muscles, loosen muscle tension and stimulate circulation.
As stated in the programme's name, the balm comes in the form of a candle made of natural wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, almond oil and rose extract. The smell of the candle balm is not perfuming but is subtle. It lasts on the skin for hours without being heavy on the skin.
Jojoba oil isn't ubiquitous due to its high price but it is a high-quality carrier oil. The benefit of this oil is decreasing inflammation and swelling.
Shea butter's benefits are moisturising and calming skin, healing many skin conditions and reducing stretch marks.
Almond oil is rich in vitamin E, which is good for maintaining healthy skin and reducing UV-induced skin swelling, skin thickness, erythema, and oedema. Individuals with nut allergies should consult with their therapist beforehand.
V Spa's menu has plenty of programmes, treatments and spa packages for guests to choose from. If you're a sports person, V Spa's Sport Massage and The Golfer's Heaven Package are perfect. Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Boran Herbal Massage are recommended for those who prefer some local touch. The spa also provides massage and nail art programmes for children.
Also if the therapy rooms are full or if you prefer more privacy, in-room spa service can be provided. Chomp recommends that you should check the availability first or book a session in advance.
