“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Ishan Spa is a bit off the main drag, but they will send a driver out to most hotels to pick you up and drop you off. I'm glad, because the drive is soo steep that it feels like you climb into another world.

Seemingly suspended in the trees is a lovely reception area and small treatment rooms, suitable for couples. The one we had was equipped with a lovely outdoor bathroom, a nice touch.

On arrival you are greeted with a very welcome cold drink and a cool towel, with a menu of services to choose from.

After treatment, another opportunity to have a sit down with some delicious ginger and coriander tea, before a lift back to your destination.

I have been to many spas in various part of Asia and this is certainly one of th ebest, in terms of fitout, polite staff, excellent service and good treatments.

Recommended.

“Rejuvenating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Although very near to town, once you reach there, it feels like near the forest instead. The spa house are built on stilts and in order to reach the house, the is a very slant slope up.
The attendants speaks clear English and provide good recommendation. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Definitely a place i will revisit when I’m there again.

“Best spa experience in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

we took the honeymoon package and gave very little notice. The staff were beyond accommodating and filled us in on the history of the island. The treatments were first class. This was the best day of our honeymoon

“2-Hour Spa Treatment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

In March, 2013, I was treated to an amazing 2-hour spa treatment at Ishan. What first impressed me is that on my arrival, my massage therapist was waiting for me on the veranda at the front of Ishan with a hot, mint-scented, rolled up towel in hand. She gave it to me when I stepped up and it was so refreshing!

SEcondly, Umi had the perfect touch for massage - firm but gentle with soothing strokes. It's not always easy to find such a skilled masseuse.

She gave me a full body scrub, then a facial and body massage. The whole thing was wonderful. And not surprisingly, I left feeling like a new woman.

I'd go back in a heartbeat if I return to Langkawi for holidays.

Visited this spa with the mrs and two other couples on our holiday. Was an amazing experience. The staff really looked after us and made sure we were relaxed throughout. The views were amazing from our treatment room and the owner was very friendly.
