Lost Remedies

One of the many attributes of the Lao culture is how resourceful its people are, drawing from nature wherever possible to support life and healthy living in every aspect. Laos didn’t always have access to modern medicine but its ability as a culture to thrive and heal itself was credited to its respect for Mother Nature and its understanding of her many powers.

At Sense, we are working to preserve the Lost Remedies that came before our time. By growing our own indigenous plants, herbs and fruit, you can see where your healing starts and how we use these ingredients in your chosen spa treatments. Herbs are carefully chosen for you from our Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden for you to see, touch, feel, smell, and even taste.

Enter Sense at Luang Prabang and choose from a variety of traditional treatments and wellness therapies.


Nuad Hai Jao | therapeutic & energizing

For centuries, ancient healers in Laos used a combination of Ginger, Black Pepper and massage to heal children’s injuries, aches and pains.   They were firm believers that the power of touch could ease most pain and that this particular therapy helps improve circulation and relax the muscles.

Deurn Thang Sok Dee | good luck journey

This journey offers a peek into the inner culture of Laos and the impressive care and attention the community puts into supporting themselves and each other. It is composed of five individual elements that when combined are sure to leave you profoundly changed for the better.


Element 1 - Baci Ceremony: Participate in a traditional Lao Baci Ceremony in the nearby village. The Baci Ceremony is founded upon the Lao people’s belief that a human being is a union of thirty-two organs, each having a  khuan (the Lao word for spirit) to protect it. These spirits often wander outside the body causing an imbalance of the soul, which might lead to an illness. This ceremony brings these spirits into harmony and conveys good fortune to your body. Experience this intimate and exclusive ritual from the true perspective of a Laos native.

Element 2Sense-Inspired Lunch: Replenish your body with a personally created menu by our executive chef.  

Element 3Cleansing Water Ritual:  Your treatment begins with a cleansing with water from the Star Gooseberry and Air Plant sprayed over your body, producing a refreshed sensation prior to the invigorating and detoxifying full body scrub.  

Element 4Invigorating Scrub: The mixture of White Crane, Good Luck Tree, Sweet Flag, Cassia Fistula and local Brown Sugar is a powerful exfoliator and is believed to bring harmony to you and your healing.

Element 5Detoxifying Massage: Your traditional Lao journey will finish with an invigorating and energizing massage.

At the conclusion of this extraordinary experience, you should find balance, connection and greater meaning in your continued journey through life.


Duration: 5 hours + Spa lunch
