Two knowledgeable young men have combined their business
and marketing expertise to operate the Oasis Spa. Khun Pakin
has many years of experience with a major pharmaceutical
company. Khun Toby has traveled to over 70 countries in
the world working in the international tourism field and
he has been based in Thailand for the past four years. They
both saw the need for a luxurious day spa in Chiang Mai
that met their personal ideas of service and professionalism.
The foot massages or
reflexology are performed by the traditional Tibetan "hands
on" method, as opposed to the impersonal "stick".
Reflexology works on the principal that for every area of
the mind, there is a corresponding part of the foot, making
the treatment the ideal way to rejuvenate both mind and
body. There are also a variety of personal items for sale
in this boutique. Crossing the low bridges through the lush
tropical scented garden will take you to the main salon.
All the stately trees in the surrounding garden are well
over forty years old.
There are two self-contained private villas, each with
its own terrace, Jacuzzi, glass-enclosed steam room, shower
and rest room where the clients can receive an entire treatment
package without having to leave the comfort of their own
personal villa. There are six glorious treatment packages
to choose from, each with a tempting and exotic sounding
name. "The Oasis Pampering" starts with an invigorating
Thai Herbal Steam, using natural ingredients, which have
been used in Thailand for generations and are renowned for
their beautifying and healing properties. This is followed
by a luxuriously soothing aromatherapy massage which will
melt away all your aches and pains, leaving you tingling
from head to toe. Finally, you will be treated to an aromatherapy
facial, which will leave your skin nourished and refreshed.
Each product is individually designed to cleanse, exfoliate,
balance and relax and is freshly prepared on a daily basis
from natural ingredients like honey, lemon and cucumber.

treatment masques and refreshments are served in exquisitely
decorated gold "Benjarong" chinaware. The comfortable
beds and sheets are custom made and loose fitting pajamas
and robes are provided. The duration of each package ranges
from one and a half hours to four hours.
