What makes an excellent spa experience? Discretion? Atmosphere? Professionalism? Great service? Emotion Spa offers all these things – and more. Their five-star TripAdvisor rating is well-deserved and though I have personally visited more than my fair share of spas, Emotion Spa is edging towards my all-time favorite.
There is more to a massage than just the treatment itself.
When it comes to creating the right atmosphere it’s hard to beat the Balinese. As much as we love Vietnam, atmosphere and aesthetics in massage establishments are often lacking. Emotion Spa has appropriated some of that unique Balinese charm. From the moment you step across the pretty, pebble-stoned courtyard into the warm, welcoming foyer, it’s easy to see Emotion Spa is a cut above, and that includes the expensive five-star hotels. From the well-furnished, en suite massage rooms in subtle neutral shades to the quiet professionalism of the staff, Emotion Spa doesn’t miss a beat.
It’s the little touches that make the difference. The masseur leaves the room and gives you some privacy while changing – does anybody enjoy being watched whilst they struggle with their undies? – and the supplied diagram ensures just the right degree of pressure will be applied.
Once expert masseurs enquire if you’re happy with the pressure they proceed without a word, and for the next hour or so you sink into a state of bliss with no interruptions. Nothing but the subtle mood music lulling you into a state of total relaxation.
This is what you come for, and this is what you get at Emotion Spa. You’re pampered – relaxed and blissed out – and that’s as it should be. These subtle, but important, touches are what make the world of difference between a good massage and a great massage, and Emotion Spa has got it all just right.
