Who doesn’t associate a holiday in Asia with blissful massages? For good reason too, as some of the world’s most popular massage therapies originated here. From a gentle Balinese massage or rejuvenating Thai massage to healing Ayurvedia massages, Asia is the land of wellness. Foot reflexology, aromatherapy, acupressure, muscle kneading, and body scrubs, Asia’s many therapies promise to relax your muscles, calm your mind and soothe your skin.

The Elite Concierge can arrange for professional spa therapists to visit you at the villa and help you relax while you’re cocooned in comfort and style.
Balinese massage therapists use a firm, kneading massage style to stimulate blood flow. This, along with pressure point techniques and reflexology helps soothe muscle tension. Meanwhile, the aromatherapy of essential oils eases you into blissful relaxation. Making its way into spas all over the world, a Balinese massage joins deep-tissue massage with aromatherapy, gentle stretching and light acupressure for a relaxing, holistic treatment.
Why choose this: Balinese massages are popular for their aromatherapy benefits. They will leave you relaxed, calm, and peaceful.
Thai massage (also called assisted yoga massage) is a vigorous treatment. In this, your body is manipulated in a series of bends, stretches, lifts and acupressure compression to stimulate energy flow and restore balance. No massage oils or lotions are used during a Thai massage, and loose-fitting clothing is worn during the treatment.
Why choose this: These are the perfect choice for outdoor massages. Get one in your poolside sala as you gaze at the ocean in front of you. Whether you’re in Koh Samui or Phuket, a Thai massage is a must-do.
Ayurvedic massage is a great introduction to the ancient practice of Ayurveda. The massage is said to play an important role in healthcare, detoxifying the skin and body, and improving digestion. As traditional medicine, Ayurveda uses plant-based treatments to heal and boost physical and mental strength to prevent illness. For many locals in Sri Lanka and India, Ayurveda is a holistic way of life. It incorporates diet, daily yoga practice and regular meditation.
Why choose this: Ayurvedic treatments are healing therapies and can target specific ailments such as migraines and weight loss. Discuss your needs with the therapist before picking the Ayurvedic massage most suited to your needs.
