Not impressed... not bad, not good either
Jul 2019 • Couples
The spa is a beautiful facility. And as any review it is a snapshot moment. I booked a 90 min massage. As all spa’s they ask you where you want emphasis and if you want “tourist-style”, regular or deep. I checked deep. Problem is... it wasn’t. Not even close.

So miscommunication, or just a bad day for the masseuse. Either way not worth the 4000 bath for two persons in this moment of time. For that money I expected better. So not bad but definitely not what I expected.

Best 3 Hour Package
Jun 2018 • Couples
My husband and I are here at the hotel for our honeymoon and today tried the 2 hour Candle wax promo: 30 min exfoliating scrub, 30 min milk bath, and 1 hour candle wax massage followed by afternoon tea for 2 people. The massages are the best we have had in the city! What an amazing experience, we felt like royalty with the staff and loved ending the whole experience by the pool with a tasty arrangement. It ended up being a wonderful 3 hours that helped to truly make our visit.

I have used this spa many times as the experience I have had has been amazing and again this time was no exception. The atmosphere, the staff, the rooms and the treatment I have not been able to equal in any other spa around the area.
My treatments included a facial and oil massages which I felt were good value.
I do try other spas but always come back to this one.

A blissful facial escape
Nov 2016 • Family
At first I thought a facial over a full body massage was going to be a bit of a waste. But having had a number of massages during this trip, I opted for Shironasya which helps deal with the head and sinuses. Pure bliss. After a quick foot cleanse I was laid out and treated to an oil massage, a rice and milk scrub/acupressure session to my face and a beautiful hot oil massage to the head.
The service is wonderful and the facilities just right. When can I move in?

Great relaxation
Sep 2016 • Couples
We tried Ayurvedic style of foot massage. It was a great relief to my foot after whole day of walking. Even though it was an hour session, it helps a lot. The masseurs did a great job. And on our last day after we checked out, we had Traditional Lanna Oil massage for an hour session. We were given 5 types of oils option, and I chose Jasmine rice oil. Perfect smell, mild and not too strong for me. It was indeed a relaxing massage because we are seeking aromatherapy type. Would recommend to my friends that travel to Chiang Mai for a great massage place.

It's a nice place if you have nothing else to do

too expensive for what it's worth, it was just at my hotel and I had to give it a try. I would give it another try and hopefully the experience will be better.

I decided that one of the things I'd do while in Chiang Mai was spoil myself with a nice spa treatment. I chose Nakara Spa because it offered Indian Ayurvedic treatments which appealed to me (I'm not a fan of the rough style of traditional Thai massages). I had the one-hour Shirobhyanga head neck and shoulders treatment which was deeply relaxing as promised. Not only was the treatment wonderful, the facilities and service were too. I was greeted with a friendly welcome and a cool drink. When I was ready I was invited to pop on slippers and was taken to the treatment room which had its own tiled shower and separate tiled toilet. There were many nice touches like fresh flower heads floating in a bowl under the bed's head rest (sure beats looking at the floor!). Because of the oils used - including in your hair - you need to shower afterwards and I was told to take as long as I wanted. I'm sure you would be welcome to use the shower before your treatment too, if you needed. All in all it was a great experience which I can recommend. Sadly I wasn't in CM long enough to take advantage of the discount voucher they gave me for a return visit - I would happily have had another treatment if time allowed. Nakara is easy to find - it's on a main road alongside the river and is in a white, three-story, colonial style building - you can't miss it. Easy to book via email.

I had a heavenly experience for 2 hours at a beautifully decorated Northern Thailand style spa. It started with traditional Thai massage followed by oil massage & then pressing with a hot ball of steamed herbs.....,boy, the trip to Chiang Mai would be worthy just to have again this massage!

Best Spa experience
Jul 2014 • Couples
Im usually skeptical of hotel spas in terms of the experience and value but Nakara Spa exceeded all my expectations. I've been to spas all around Thailand and Nakara Spa is way up there with the best of them.
