Oasis Turquoise Cove Spa Phuket is the latest opening of the award-winning Oasis Spa range, making it the fourth on the island, with a further six dotted around Thailand. Located walking distance from Phuket Fantasea on the quiet outskirts of Kamala Beach, this is one of the best placed luxury spas for guests staying at the many hotels and guesthouses in the area as well as those visiting the nearby attractions.
The classical architecture and blue-and-white-striped furnishings give this Oasis Spa a Mediterranean feel, as does the large central pool which is surrounded by individual massage rooms and villas. These vary between treatment rooms for one up to small villas with a private lounge area, two treatment beds, open-air shower and a spacious bathroom with a deep-soak tub. Most importantly, the out-of-town location combined with the high and thick outer walls means that external sounds are kept to a minimum, making it easy to block out the world and completely relax.
The real attraction of the Oasis Turquoise Cove Spa Phuket is the treatments. These vary in duration from a 30-minute Aromatherapy Milk Bath in one of the aforementioned luxurious tubs or a Thai Herbal Steam in the cavern-like steam room (both of which cost 650 baht ++), all the way up to the five-hour Seaside Sensation spa package (7,500 baht ++), which combines the Herbal Steam with an Aloe Vera Mint Body Scrub, an Aloe Vera and Lavender Body Wrap and the spa’s own signature King of Oasis Massage, with a Detoxifying Facial for dessert.
We tried the King of Oasis Massage on its own (3,900 baht ++), which was two hours of bliss. It takes some of the hard stretching which makes a traditional Thai massage so famous (and painful, in some cases) and combines it with the gentler and more relaxing aspects of hot compress and hot oil treatments. With such sensations, the mind wanders off with the sounds of relaxing music and trickling water from the artificial waterfall outside.
Prices are on the higher end of the spectrum, but this is entirely justified by the quality and luxury of the experience. Oasis Turquoise Cove Spa Phuket has well-trained, polite and friendly staff, a wide range of treatments available, high-quality products in use, ideal surroundings and absolute privacy in the independent villas, making it well worth dedicating time and money to.
