Spa month is still in session. If you haven’t booked a $99 treatment yet, now is the time, because the almost-too-good-to-be-true deals are available only until Aug. 31.
I recently stopped in at The Spa at the Setai for a massage. If you, too, are at a laptop the majority of the day, consider the spa’s Back Massage by Themae. The 60-minute treatment (for $129) uses deep muscular techniques and Thai stretching to relieve stress. Each treatment starts with tea and a beautiful foot ritual, where feet are washed and scrubbed by your massage therapist. Using healing oils, the massage revives muscles, wards off stress and overall calms.
Afterward, head to the spa’s lobby to do a little shopping. Among the items, find Themae products, like the ones used in the treatment, for all of your skincare needs. There are also beach options, such as bikinis, coverups and sandals, should you care to lounge poolside afterward.
And be sure to stock up on scented candles to recreate the spa experience at home.
