Well, I had googled the best things to do in Vienam and a spa in a small seaside city called Nha Trang came up… I-resort. On the side of a mountain, this attraction is famous for mud baths. It’s not really a resort as you can’t stay there. But, it is also a famous spa and has fun looking water slides. But most people go for the mud baths.
Everything I read suggested going for a VIP Treatment. So, I decided to treat myself for an early birthday present. I spent about $275 for a total pampering day. I had my own private villa on the mountain top. It had a bed, a stone bathroom and shower, a funky net hammock /trampoline. A small private pool and my own mud bath. The pool and mud bath were filled in my presence so I knew it was all clean and fresh for me. Very nice.
I had a selection of spa treatments that day. Plus lunch. (Massive. Enough for four people or two rugby players).
First, I had a body scrub. Fresh Vietnamese grown coffee grinds. And then milk for a bit of natural smoothing.
Next, I had a mud mask.
Followed by a swim in the tub and lunch.
Then a mud bath.
Then a herbal soak in the same tub as the mud bath.
Then hand and foot nail care.
And finally a full body massage and facial. She did my hair while waiting for some part of the treatment.
Then I had time to enjoy the herbal bath and pool and eat some fruit platter (could have had a full meal of spaghetti bologna see or a pizza but when I saw the five course menu for lunch I figured fruit plate would more than suffice. It did!). And drink the wine and passionfruit juice I had chosen.
Had never had a manicure before and it was nice but the scrub and mask and massage/facial were all more enjoyable.
It was a superb day and I felt totally spoiled. You could have in the private villa up to four people. So vey different to do with girlfriends, but would be equally as scrumptious, I think. And it would only cost about $135 each. Totally recommend it. Solo for some me relax time or pampering girls day out!!
