Located on the ground floor of Azerai La Residence’s west wing, Le Spa offers two double treatment rooms and four single treatment rooms, each with a fully private dressing area, vanity and shower, as well as a comfortable and stylish lounge sofa. The refurbished facility features a sophisticated minimalist aesthetic, with neutral color tones and art deco flourishes, and was completed by French-Canadian architect Pascal Trahan, who also designed the tropical bungalows at Azerai Resort Can Tho.
“With the relaunch of Le Spa, we are signalling that Azerai La Residence, Hue, intends to be a destination for spa lovers not only in Vietnam but throughout the region,” said Phan Trong Minh, general manager of the hotel.
Le Spa has long been renowned for using spa products made from local ingredients, such as coffee, sea salt and green tea, in its popular body scrubs and other treatments.
With the refurbishment, the hotel also brought in a new spa manager, Ronald Mutuc, a 20-year hospitality industry veteran who has worked in some of the world’s most acclaimed hotel spas. He oversees Le Spa’s staff of more than a dozen therapists and spa associates.
The new thermotherapy offered at Le Spa is a procedure designed to wake up one’s senses, as guests move from warm, drenching showers to an ice fountain and back, alternating between hot and cold experiences. The ice fountains produce ice flakes that guests can apply to their body and limbs, creating a revitalising sensation. Guests can use the thermotherapy areas before or after their treatments.
Le Spa has also introduced several new signature treatments. Le Spa Experience, for instance, is a 150-minute treatment that pampers guests from tip to toe with aroma body touch therapy, a sea salt and honey body scrub, a detoxifying mud wrap, and a mini facial.
Others like Vital Leg Hot Stone Therapy is designed to treat fatigue and general discomfort of the legs and feet and Bamboo Leg Therapy that employs bamboo to massage the legs, reducing water retention and adipose tissue, while releasing muscular tension in the legs.
