I would gladly return to the spa the next time I stay at the Twinpalms Phuket.

Overall Impression The Palm Spa, the spa of the Twinpalms Phuket hotel, was a step away from the hotel entrance and a world away. A see-through glass door led to a brightly lit reception filled with comfortable contemporary furniture. We left our shoes by the door and entered the quiet space. The young woman behind the reception desk had a warm demeanor and offered to show us around the spa.

The spa was larger than I first thought when we arrived. Although it was busy (I saw guests booking appointments and ran into a couple I knew) it was quiet and there was a sense of serenity. After our brief spa tour the spa supervisor made recommendations for my treatments, a 90-minute Palm Spa Herbal Luxury Massage followed by a 55-minute Nature’s Dream Facial one day and a 55-minute Surin Massage on another day.

The staff members I met were polite and self confident. The treatments were pleasant and the spa worthwhile. I would gladly return to the spa the next time I stay at the Twinpalms Phuket.

Treatments Experienced I had the 90-minute Palm Spa Herbal Luxury massage designed to blend Swedish massage and a hot herbal compress to warm the muscles. Later that same day, on the recommendation of the spa supervisor, I had the 55-minute Nature’s Dream Facial with a natural honey, orange, milk and a fresh cucumber mask to invigorate and soften facial skin. Both were performed in the same treatment room on a flat massage table (a leg pillow would have been welcome) by Ms. Sukharada who went by the nickname Thip. I also had a Surin Massage, a 55-minute treatment mixing Swedish, Thai and sports techniques. My maseuse was Mrs. Pennipa who went by the nickname Pook.
