HARNN HERITAGE SPA

INTERCONTINENT SUN PENINSULA The “Journey of Marble Mountains” package at the Harnn Heritage Spa starts with a personal consultation, and it may be unlike anything you’ve experienced before. You’ll be asked to fill out a questionnaire that is equal parts medical and metaphysical, ranging from health and skin problems to your favorite colour, food, weather – even your personality type and greatest fears.

|16|

The point of all of this is to determine your natural element. Traditional Vietnamese medicine, called Dong Y, is derived from Chinese medicine and focuses on restoring balance between yin and yang and finding harmony among the Five Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.


WorldLuxurySpa_Issue1_P1_Layout 1 13/09/2015 12:56 Page 17

ENTAL DANANG A The flow of energy in our bodies is thought to follow the same path as nature: wood kindles fire, fire forms ash (earth), earth solidifies to form metal, metal (minerals) enriches water, water nourishes wood (trees).

Aer your therapist finds your element, she will create a bespoke natural oil blend that best suits you. Your package will then include Dong Y treatment on a warm bed made from Danang’s famous marble, long regarded for its therapeutic properties.

|18|

You’ll find this paern of five frequently repeated throughout Vietnam. Marble Mountains, a popular araction around 40 minutes from the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, are beer known to the Vietnamese as Ngu Hanh Son, or Five Elements Mountains, with each one named for a natural element.


WorldLuxurySpa_Issue1_P1_Layout 1 13/09/2015 12:56 Page 19

You’ll also encounter the Five Elements in Vietnamese cuisine, where each taste (sour, bier, sweet, spicy and salty) corresponds to an element. At a meal, there is an effort to balance out these five tastes, as well as to appeal to the five senses and nourish five internal organs of the body. The power of five is seen in many other aspects of Vietnamese culture, such as a visual balance of colours.

So are you fire or water? Find out at Harnn Heritage Spa located at Sea level. danang.intercontinental.com

No expense has been spared at the exclusive tropical hideaway, where 25 Fijian-styled villas are set amid coconut plantations, beside deserted beaches and atop the island’s volcanic mountains, overlooking fertile coral reefs and endless jungle. Style and sustainability go hand in hand throughout, from the natural fibres and woods used in design to the wild orchids harvested in gardens and organic produce grown on island farms. Set over 1,400 hectares, Laucala epitomises the seclusion and graceful hospitality for which the Fijian archipelago is famed. ABOUT THE ISLAND A private island covering 12 square kilometres, Laucala offers dramatic extremes in landscape: volcanic mountains covered in tropical rainforest and postcard-perfect beaches, untouched mangroves and coral reefs brimming with marine life. The resort sits on the island’s northern coast and covers just 4.5 square kilometres, which means that the vast majority of the land is an unspoiled wilderness of jungle and coconut plantations, home to some of the archipelago’s rarest birds and animals. Laucala has tapped into the island’s lush natural bounty, establishing a number of organic farms and gardens producing fruit, vegetables, herbs and meat for resort restaurants as well as flowers and spices for the spa. The sustainable approach to resort living not only guarantees flavourful food and memorable spa treatments, but also ensures that guests leave with a genuine insight into Fijian culture.

LAUCALA SPA EXPERIENCES Few spa experiences rival that at Laucala, where traditional Fijian therapies, organic amenities and serene seings go hand in hand. Four treatment villas – each with an outdoor tub, relaxation room and changing room – and two wet rooms with Vichy showers and steam facilities sit amid water features and tall palm trees, complemented by a beauty salon, pedicure and manicure rooms and the Spa Garden. It’s here that herbs, spices, flowers and fruits are picked to create Laucala’s four signature scents: Molikaro (native citrus), Wainimate (medicinal herbs), Senikau (tropical blooms) and Qele (indigenous roots, woods and spices). Each scent is incorporated into the spa’s organic, amenities, including lotions and the massage oils used in spa rituals. Signature experiences range from Fijian hot-andcold stone therapy to body scrubs using volcanic soil from the island and mineral crystal therapy. Guests are encouraged to become involved in the spa experience through the Spa Garden, where an interactive display informs about Fiji’s tropical bounty. Guests can pick their own spices, herbs flowers and fruits – vanilla, lemongrass, cinnamon, nutmeg, coffee, ylang ylang, pepper, ginger – and create a signature essential oil, soap or lotion in the Spa Kitchen, where a coconut press produces oil in small batches. The fish caught during the day are taken directly from the boat to the kitchen and transformed into top-class maritime delicacies – they couldn't be fresher!
