The Spa used to be an institution. It was THE place to go to detox in Samui. Unfortuantely, it's success has been and gone. Long gone! The service is awful, the view of the beach is more like a view of a fishing boat yard, and the restaurant is NOT health food. They add MSG and sugar to everything, and when they run out of RAW cacao they use Cadbury's drinking chocolate. No joke!
I went to have a aloe vera body wrap for 500 B. I looked on the spa menu, it said it included 15 minutes in the herbal steam room. But the surly, sullen lady on reception said ''10 minutes!'. ''Only 10 minutes!'' No Thai smile here then.
i paid up, and went into the steam room for my measly 10 minutes. It was grotty, filthy, and cold. The window on the door was missing!
I then, was lead to the Sala for my wrap.
The grumpy lady slathered me in Aloe vera, which took all of about 3 minutes, slopping it on without care - jabbing me in the throat once, while she was at it. Then plopped a sarong over me and left me for half an hour.
I lay there trying to relax with the sound of an angle grinder going outside, and a fishing boaat revving it's engine.
Not the most relaxing experience!
This place continues it's downward slide, while the prices continue to rise. It's dirty, and in need of some TLC. Avoid!
