Cool Spa by Sri panwa Phuket is a full service spa and wellness zone. Completely secluded by lush tropical rainforest, and set within its own private tropical water garden, Cool Spa is an oasis of serenity offering truly Thai treatments and tailored holistic experiences.
At the 2013 World Luxury Spa Awards, Cool Spa was voted as the “2013 Best Luxury Resort Spa” in recognition of their unsurpassed service excellence.
Designed to resemble a traditional Sino-Portuguese residence, and with its distinctly relaxing azure blue colour, reflecting its ocean location, Cool Spa is set within beautifully landscaped spa gardens with the sight and sound of waterfalls creating a calming environment for total wellbeing. Six private treatment rooms, each with their own Jacuzzi bathtub, and two outdoor pavilions, all with thatched roofs, gives a distinctly Asian feel.
All treatments at Cool Spa use Sri panwa’s own Thai product line created using local, natural and seasonal indigenous ingredients including mango, papaya, rambutan, coconut and tamarind sourced from the local market or from Sri panwa’s own kitchen garden. Guests can also have bespoke scrubs and soothing lotions especially created from blended fruits, yoghurt, honey, teas and oils that are good enough to eat.
The full spa menu includes both traditional and truly indulgent treatments that can be enjoyed either in a private treatment room or outside in a secluded sala – everything from full body traditional Thai massage, and Indian massages using aromatherapy disciplines, to herbal Thai Prakob to ease away aches and pains and stretch muscles, and Anti-Oxidant Green Tea massages to calm the skin after a hot day in the sun are available.
Guests will be able to relax before and after treatments in hot and cold plunge pools, vitality pools, ‘experience’ rain showers and steam baths, and also enjoy stretching and yoga sessions at a completely secluded outdoor spa terrace with sunset and ocean views. A delicious menu of light, healthy nutritional dishes and herbal juices are also available for refreshment and served at a juice bar within the water gardens, and there is a full salon service for manicures, pedicures and any finishing touches that guests may require.
Introducing the Innovative Blood Type Therapy
Sri panwa has launched an innovative new treatment range at Cool Spa based on the specific needs and idiosyncrasies of the four different blood types. Masterfully created by Cool Spa’s therapists, Blood Type Therapy is an exciting, new range of treatments based on the relation of blood type to holistic wellness.
Based on the same rational as Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s famous blood type diet, popular with celebrities, the treatments have been devised according to different energies in each blood group and their effect on an individual’s health and wellbeing. For this treatment Cool Spa has partnered with professional skin care company Immunetra, who specialise in products relating to blood type wellness.
The new selection of treatments include a range of body scrubs, body masks and massage therapies that have been individually created to suit blood types A, B and O. Those with AB blood type can select from either A or B. Cool Spa offers individualised programmes with personalised treatment oils created from the finest botanical extracts, vitamins and essential oils.
Blood Type A
Personality traits: Conservative reserved, patient, a perfectionist.
Treatments for blood type A include an invigorating body scrub rich in oats, coffee beans, soy and carnithine performed to stimulate metabolism and enhance circulation. A green tea body mask detoxifies the skin and draws out impurities, before a decadent honey moisturiser is applied to nourish and restore the balance. Particularly recommended is the Stress Harmony massage which targets type A’s underlying stresses and tensions.
Blood Type B
Personality traits: Creative, flexible, individualistic, passionate
Immunetra Rice Gem Scrub is the perfect exfoliation for type B skin. Natural ingredients of oats and rice flakes work to remove dead cells, whilst the combination of fruit enzymes and pink tourmaline crystals partner to rejuvenate beautiful skin. A warming Oriental Spice body mask blended with deep sea algae, liquorice, fruit extracts, purified green tea extract and tanaka refreshes blood type B’s skin. Particularly recommended is the Intensive Relaxing massage, designed to balance the immune system which is essential for type B blood.
Blood Type O
Personality traits: Ambitious, self-confident, robust
Type O benefits most from antioxidant treatments. The Soya Gem Srub contains lavender, green tea and tourmarline gems to cleanse both the skin and mind. The Deep Sea Mask nourishes and cleanses the skin and helps type O’s to detox. As type O’s are more prone to allergies, particularly recommended is the Detoxifying massage, created to help stimulate cellular metabolism and alleviate minor redness of the skin whilst enhancing circulation.
Cool Spa guests can choose to enjoy the full Blood Type experience, or book an individual body scrub, body mask or massage treatment according to their own blood type.
