How Vietnam Is Taking Over the World of Beauty & Wellness With These 8 Spa Trends

Vietnam’s gorgeous landscapes, stunning beaches, and bustling city are just a few reasons why the country has recorded 8.48 million tourists arriving on their shores during the first half of 2019. Not to mention their spa resort holiday destinations that promises rest and relaxation that can rejuvenate your overall health and well-being. It’s no wonder that Vietnam is getting its much deserved attention from the world. 

Wellbeing Sabbaticals

In this fast-paced world of ours, we cannot help but take our work into our homes, making it impossible to find rest in our own sanctuary. Fortunately, we will see more restorative retreats in 2020, where people can go on wellbeing sabbaticals. Aside from unplugging from the world, getting a revitalizing massage spa can help release any tension and stress that we’ve been enduring. Massage therapy helps works the tendons, muscles, and soft tissues in the body with pressures ranging from gentle to deep strokes to bring relief to your tired body

Mud and Hot Spring Treatments

Nha Trang’s natural hot springs and mud consider not only the therapeutic benefits for our skin but also the host of health advantages, too. Mud baths in Nha Trang comes highly recommended with the baths lasting for 20 minutes to follow with a full body massage. The liquid mud bath is perfect for treating sun damaged skin and rejuvenating our dry and tired bodies. There, you can rest and relax beside the rich mineral waterfall surrounded by the beauty of nature. 

Personalized Wellness Programs

Personalized wellness programs are going to be trending this 2020 and it is one that is worth experiencing. One particular spa resort in Vietnam that offers this package is the Anam Spa where their spa choices cater to their client’s zodiac signs, zodiac elements, and birth years. The resort has an element specialist who will assess your birth year to determine your zodiac sign and element. They will then customize a spa treatment that will help align your soul, body, and mind. 

Urban Wellness Retreats

Getting stuck in the city doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some much-needed wellness retreat. Urban wellness retreats will trend this year and for a good reason. Take the La Maison L’Apothiquaire, for example, which is found in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City that gives city dwellers a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. You can go for a half-day spa retreat or go all out for some multi beauty relaxation treatment that you deserve. 

Family Spa Treatments 

There is a common misconception that wellness is just for adults. However, Asian wellness trends are also acknowledging the fact that children need to unwind as well. Therefore, you will see family-oriented spas in Vietnam that you can bring the whole family to, such as The Six Senses resort in Ninh Van Bay. This resort is built in among the cliffs, the beach, and the mountains giving children the idea of a secret hideaway. There are two-bedroom villas located on the beach as well as on the hilltops, to give families some privacy. They also come with a spa suite for in-house treatments. Children can get an OPI Shrek Nail mini-manicures, Youthful yoga, as well as Powers of Imagination treatments. 

Ayurvedic Inspired Healing

Ayurveda is a traditional healing system where they combine yogic breathing, a holistic diet, and herbal treatments to bring balance back to the body. Following this concept, we will see spa resorts offering fusion treatments such as the Maia Spa Wellness offered by Fusion Resort in Cam Ranh. Here you will experience Ayurveda-inspired massage treatments that bring balance to your doshas, in addition to natural body and facial treatments.

Destination Spa Retreats

Destination spa retreats are going to be trending this 2020, as people discover new places of wellness with easy access to tourist attractions. One example of this is the Life Wellness Resort which is situated in the seaside town of Quy Nhon and has the old-world charm of the Cham culture. From vestiges of Champa architecture, delicious dishes, and stunning landscapes, you will find serenity here. Life Wellness Resort offers authentic Vietnamese wellness treatments that include daily spa cuisine meals to boost your health, spa wellness programs that include facials and massages, and bodily exercises like Tai Chi and Yoga. 

Luxury Spa Resorts

Luxury spa resorts are gaining traction in Vietnam and will be here to stay too. The Four Seasons Resort in the charming city of Hoi An is a great luxury spa resort that offers luxurious treatments. Those who are in a spiritual quest may take advantage of the resort’s spa called Heart of the Earth. Spa treatments in this luxury resort is done in their water-side villa that makes you feel as if you are floating over the lotus pond. 

Spa retreats give our minds and bodies the chance to sit back, rest, and recuperate from the daily ordeals that we are going through. And Vietnam is up to the task of delivering stunning spa destinations that will help you on this journey of bringing balance to your whole being.
