Compared to the other spas and salons of Ho Chi Minh City, Intercontinental Asiana Spa is outstanding for the different experiences it gives its customers. It’s not merely relaxing, but a purging of bad vibes that causes your soul and body to feel rejuvenated after an experience there.
The receptionists were very nice when I first entered, and served me kindly. The Intercontinental Spa is located on the forth floor of the Intercontinental Hotel, the most luxurious hotel in HCMC. It has a yoga room, a swimming pool, a fitness center and a suite, all well-integrated so to serve the guests as efficiently as possible.
The spa was designed around the idea of harmony in body and mind, a concept embraced by the decorations. It’s a simple design, with deep color tones and light yellow ambient lighting. Recent scientific research has determined that yellow induces feelings of warmth and relaxation in people, a fact that guided Intercontinental to select them for its spa.
A unique feature is the private nature of the spa experience. There a doubles rooms, for couple, but it’s possible to get a full facility treatment with a shower and a changing room. It’s a relaxing and familiar as having a spa treatment in your own house.
