Step into a world of bliss and tranquility at Fah Lanna Spa, a prestigious winner of the World Luxury Spa Awards, boasting a name that pays homage to Chiang Mai‘s captivating history in the former kingdom of Lanna.

Fah Lanna Spa has three outlets across the city, but the Old Town is said to be the most spacious and enchanting of the three

What sets Fah Lanna Spa apart from the rest is its unwavering commitment to infusing ancient Thai medical wisdom and traditional Thai Lanna culture into their treatments.

Beyond a spa

The crown jewel of their offerings is the Fah Lanna Wisdom, a sublime fusion of ancient Thai medical wisdom, massage, and traditional Thai Lanna culture. This extraordinary signature treatment goes beyond mere physical benefits; it nurtures the mind and spirit as well. The result? A holistic journey that celebrates the rich cultural heritage of Lanna. But, what exactly does it mean to celebrate culture in the context of a spa treatment? How does a spa experience achieve such a significant feat?

To fully immerse yourself in the elements of traditional Lanna culture, you will first partake in a short “Wai Kru” ceremony, where you pay homage to the master of Thai massage, alongside the skilled spa therapist. But of course, the naturalistic design of the spa, especially the treatment room, also sets the stage for the transformative massage to come.

After a quick shower, you’ll hit the steam room for 30 minutes to detox, where the healing warmth envelops you in a cocoon of relaxation. For an intimate experience, the steam room will only be reserved for you and your partner.

Once the steam and sweat have revitalised your senses, the spiritual journey. The therapist begins with a “Taleo,” a Lanna Symbol of protection, to assess your body balance. A skin and spiritual detox using Betel leaves follows, believed to purify not just the skin, but also dispel any negativity. After around two hours of indulgent massage, the journey concludes with gentle body movements, with influences of traditional Thai dance, leaving you in a state of profound relaxation and rejuvenation.

According to the legends, the Betel leafs will crack easily upon pressure

However, if time is of the essence, the basic Siam Massage awaits, offering a 2-hour escape into serenity at 1,600 baht per person.

Fah Lanna Spa is a sanctuary of bliss where tradition and luxury intertwine, offering an array of experiences to cater to every guest’s desire for tranquility and renewal. Whether you opt for the iconic Fah Lanna Wisdom or the exquisite Siam Massage, an unforgettable and rejuvenating journey awaits within these hallowed walls.
