A Sense of Touch in Phuket
Lifestyle guru Andrea Chong gives us an inside look at her sensory experience in Phuket.
Singapore-based Andrea Chong was feeling under the weather when she checked in to the new Rosewood Phuket. “I thought I’d have to spend the weekend in bed,” the frequent traveler, who runs a creative agency says. Instead, she stopped by Asaya, the seaside resort’s wellness platform for healing treatments. “A sense of touch is probably the most important sensory experience at Asaya, just because the attention to detail they put into everything.”
For her massage, she got her own hands in on the action. Walking around the gardens, an Asaya expert guided Chong to hand-select fresh, curative herbs to use in a massage. “I chopped the herbs and other ingredients to create a revitalizing mixture for my treatment, and it felt great knowing that all of the ingredients were fresh and organic.”
