By Agnes Dai You cannot miss the award-winning Ang-


sana Spa after taking in entertainment and exercise. Angsana Spa takes its name from the exotic Angsana Tree – a tall, tropical rainfor- est tree noted for its crown of golden, fra- grant flowers, which burst into bloom unex- pectedly. The Angsana teaches one to live life spontaneously, to sense the moment and taste the beauty of life. The Spa comprises 12 spa treatment rooms, and offers massages at 34 open-air private rooftops of InOcean Villas. Angsana Spa’s refreshing blend of treatments place special emphasis on the use of natural ingredients such as native flowers and fruits. It is based on the use of aromatherapy, treatment with the initiative art of touch, and a fusion of techniques from the East and West to refresh and rejuvenate your body and mind. The Sun Balm treatment (USD160/120 mins) is created exclusively for vacations near the ocean. The membrane contains cucumber extract that will sooth burnt skin and relieve inflammation and pain caused by exposure to the Sunshine. It comes with a sweet fruit-fragrant facial treat- ment, which helps to prevent UV damage. In the evening, you can dine at Funa, the


seafood grill restaurant or Kaani with various cuisines served throughout the day, taste wine while enjoying a boat tour, or have a picnic on the beach under a star-speckled sky. Life is so great. Just dream freely in this paradise where the sea melts into the sky.
