For this last part of the trip journal, it's SPA time!
Although we stayed at Banyan Tree, our preferred spa was actually Angsana Spa. We've always loved the Outdoor (or rather Open-Air) Pavilion at Angsana Spa, as compared to the Spa Villa (air-conditioned) at Banyan Tree. Anyway, both are sister properties and free buggy service is available between the two properties.
I chose a 120-min Angsana Signature massage which included a 90-min treatment & 30-min refreshments and relaxation session. Couldn't remember which massage hubby chose.
Decorations remain the same as five years ago.
As usual, the therapist was very skilfull and I remembered snoozing off throughout the massage :p
I felt that I didn't get enough of spa, so decided to book a facial on Day 3 morning at Banyan Tree Spa :p
The facial started with a back massage first, followed by cleansing, scrub and mask. Couldn't remember the details as I dozed off once again. Oh there was head and neck massages too. It felt soooo good and relaxing!
Both of us loved such rest and relax getaways, and the spas were always the highlight of every single Bintan trip! If time is limited and you are looking at a hassle free getaway, Bintan is worth considering.
