V Integrated Wellness Botanical Spa
At Andaman Resort, Langkawi
The spa is located in the Andaman Resort in Datai area. Being part of a 5 star resort and arguably in the elite part of the island where the most expensive hotels are located offering ultimate luxury and exclusivity, the spa too lives up too that reputation, and expectedly won't be light on your pocket by any means.
Like several other spas in its category, many treatments at V Integrated spa at Andaman are also inspired by the old traditional healing practices in Malaysia that made use of ingredients from the rainforest. The spa has won several awards over the years and considered one of the best spas in the island offering immaculate treatments and services.
A red stones pathway soon after the entrance to the resort leads to the spa through plantations. While the spa treatments and offerings are excellent, but the key differentiating factors of this spa are basically two things: Open air private villas or cabanas where the spa treatmens are offered and the stunning view of the Andaman ocean as you experience a spa service. Both hotel guests and outside guests can make reservations and experience the spa.
