The Lanna Lifestyle

In the heart of Montecasino is a hidden gem that every person who appreciates some pampering needs to know about.  I was invited to visit Lanna Lifestyle Spa earlier this week and I’m so glad I went.  The ladies at the spa are genuinely caring and I felt it from the moment I walked in and was met with Terry’s welcoming smile, until the moment you leave after having Annie work her magic with her deceivingly strong (but tiny!) hands.

The first thing I noticed when I arrived inside the Pivot Tower was that they’ve been keeping the Lanna Lifestyle Spa a secret from everyone else and I don’t blame, it’s gorgeous!  The spa takes up the entire ground floor and I felt like I was walking into a different dimension once I’d left my car in the parking lot, and stepped inside into a little piece of Thailand…

Before I show you my experience in pictures, here’s what you need to know:

Lanna Lifestyle Spa is open from 09:00 – 21:00 Mondays to Saturdays (yes, really!) and 09:00 – 18:00 on Sundays and public holidays.

Thailand inspired tea pots with infused thai flavoured tea as a distraction while I filled out the consultation forms to explain what my preferences were. The hot and fragranced face cloth was very appreciated on a cold and chilly morning.

This friendly face is Annie, she was my therapist and took absolute care of me the whole morning.

Lanna Lifestyle Spa

Lanna Lifestyle Spa’s owner Prudence has personally visited Thailand for her inspiration in the spa’s decor. Almost everything in the spa comes from Thailand, including 3 of the therapists. It’s authentic and you can tell that it has been put together with love and passion.

I think this was one of my favourite little finds: the treatment rooms all have different names and hand carved signs, which show whether the room is occupied or not by the sculpture’s eyes which will be opened or closed!

Shower room

This treatment room is for those of you who would prefer water massage, the shower jets spray water in different directions synchronised to massage your muscles. I didn’t try this one myself, but I plan to on my next visit.

Lanna Lifestyle Spa

Want to bring along your lover or friend? No problem, the thai massage treatment room for two allows for just that.

Lanna Lifestyle Spa

This is the yoga thai massage room. A massage for those who don’t mind being twisted. You will feel so alive after this one, trust me!

Lanna Lifestyle Spa Pedicure station

Even the pedicure station whispers Thailand style relaxation and comfort, doesn’t it?

These screens are hand carved by the fathers of the lady therapists. They all come from the same village in Thailand and this is just one more piece that Prudence managed to source for the spa.

Lanna Lifestyle Spa jacuzzi

Ok, this one is for those pamper parties you’ve always dreamed about with your friends. This Jacuzzi takes up to 16 people, it’s that big!

Lanna Lifestyle spa

The room itself has a sliding door that opens up into an adjoining room with big and fluffy lounge chairs to sink into. The spa allows for catering and drinks and even has a 10-seater boardroom.

  1. Cant believe I’ve never heard of this spa!!! Looks totally amazing and will definitely be paying them a visit asap!

  2. I desperately need a massage!! Sounds and looks lovely. Will tell people about it!

  3. I just love there trading hours. I’m in retail and our 12 hour work days makes in sometimes impossible to go to places like this to relax and be taken away to a place with no stress and worries (and believe me I need that, even if it is only for an hour or so). The decor makes it completely look like your really in Thailand… Its stunning… LOVE IT

  4. Wow exquisite. This would definately be escaping to a place out of this world. Annie says it all with her charming smile.

  5. Absolutely stunning, I have heard of the spa but could never get a booking – and with getting caught up between my baby girl and school and the stress of working long hours in a “Man’s job” and “man’s world” makes it even more difficult to unwind and slow down – this is exactly what I need and would love to experience it!
