“This is what our mind and body wanted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2009

The Day i started planning our Langkawi trip, i knew, a spa visit is must. But the question is which one. Thanks God i selected Ishan Spa.
There was little hick up as the cable car opened at 4 pm on that day and we didn't wanted to miss it. So we went ahead with cable car and thought we can make it in time. But unfortunately, we couldn't make it. As soon as we returned to our hotel, i contacted them and was actually surprised to know that they still can pick us up and serve. Thorough professional stuff.
When we reached there, we were welcome with wet towel and a welcome drink.
Session was fabulous. It really rejuvenated us, specially after 3 long days at the beach.
We will surely visit again when we return to Langkawi. A must do in our trip
Thanks you ishan Spa for making our trip wonderfull.

“Best Couples Massage!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2009

This was an extraordinary experience. We did a couples massage....all of the products they used were made from scratch on site. The location, looking over the ocean, is breath taking. The spa puts you at ease the moment you arrive......built in a local style, but with all of the luxuries you would expect from the best spas. The package started with a body scrub and banana leaf wrap. After showers, we soaked in a hot spa that was covered with fresh flowers. Then came the massage. Two therapists massaged each of us. They were so well trained that you couldn't tell the difference between the two women....they were totally in unison. It was so relaxing and sensual, my husband and I talk about it often and can't wait for a chance to go back!!!

“Refreshing the body, mind and soul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2009

We have been lucky enough to holiday in Langkawi every year for the last 14 years and every year we have visited Ishan Spa (and before that in its previous name too) regularly. from the minute we contact Ishan Spa the experience we feel is one of caring. They offer so much as a total package for Refreshing the body, mind and soul. Every year we come away feeling ready for a stressful year back at work in UK.
We have had treatments from different therapists at Ishan Spa & though they may differ in firmness of massage etc each has been very attentive and friendly. A truly relaxing experience. Cant wait to return.

“Just what our bodies ordered!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2008

The Ishan Spa in Langkawi totally blew us away! We had wanted to try out the spa offered in Langkawi and my, were we in for a fantastic surprise for our selection. :) We were recommended by Baskie, one of the Langkawi's destination experts and well, what can we say? We were totally pampered, i must say if we had stayed anymore longer than 3d2n in Langkawi i would have visited the spa again. Thumbs up for the service, as mentioned in most other posts, the excellent level of service was consistently dished out to tourists of different nationalities. We did the Orchid Spa, which was more than 2.75hrs as mentioned on their web. Allow me to unveil some good before you get there to try it out yourself. We were offered free return transfer from our hotel to Ishan Spa. Once we were there everything was cool, setting was tranquil, we were greeted with some lovely ladies who served us a refreshing welcome drink, checked with us whether we were suitable for the treatments awaiting us. We started with aromatherapy massage by experienced hands, with a refreshing scrub straight after, took the jacuzzi flower bath in a sea of petals and ended with the the facial that sent me into a deep sleep. My, i was embarrased to have to be woken up by the masseur that the session has ended. All in all, the whole package was just what our bodies ordered, total rejuvenation. I'm looking forward to returning sometime soon, thanks to Baskie's recommendation and to all the staff who made it such a wonderful experience for us. :) Cheers!

“Stunning Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2008

Ishan Spa is worth visiting for the stunning setting alone which actually feels like you are in the middle of a rain forest.
I had a wonderful foot and leg massage which was extremely invigorating and relaxing and made me feel on top of the world. The little massage bungalows are set amongst the trees and overlooking beautiful views of the ocean. Unfortunately it was a cloudy evening and I missed what is usually a stunning sunset - but hopefully next time!
The staff are extremely professional and helpful and put you at your ease.
Ishan Spa is somewhere I will definitely return to on my next trip to Langkawi.
