Packages:
Half Day Packages - The Dheva Spa Half Day packages highlight Signature Ceremonies, adapted from traditional practices of Northern Thai, Burmese and Indian cultures.

Royal Thai Ceremony - 3 Hours 20 Minutes USD 295 - Inspired by ancient Thai customs, indulge in the ultimate “Royal Thai” experience! The ceremony begins with a royal foot bath using Indian pennywort, sandalwood, milk and evening primrose. These herbs are well known to help improve circulation, relieve stress and improve the texture of the skin. It continues with centuries-old herbal steam and sarong bath, scented with a blend of cinnamon and Samoh Thai to cleanse and detoxify the body. A safflower scrub is spread on the body to increase circulation and calm the mind, followed by a kraw khruea wrap, known for its toning and beautifying properties. The skin is left feeling extremely soft and smooth. The ceremony ends with a Royal Thai massage – the perfect relaxation for the mind and body.

Ayurvedic Ceremony - 3 Hours 20 Minutes USD 295 - In India, emphasis is placed on herbal formulations that aid circulation and enhance beauty, known culturally as shringar. Our Ayurvedic Ceremony starts off with a welcoming foot bath using fresh rose petals. This is followed by a camphor scented steam bath and an Ubtan scrub that uses turmeric, cinnamon and mint blended with rose water, leaving your skin soft, radiant and impregnated with the scent of flowers. An Indian herbal wrap infuses your body with warm scents and spices. This ceremony concludes with deeply relaxing shirobhyanga and abhyanga massages using warm Ayurvedic oils.

Mandalay Ceremony - 3 Hours 20 Minutes USD 295 - Cleansing and protecting the skin have always been an important part of the Burmese culture. The Mandalay Ceremony incorporates this ancient tradition, as is reflected in the natural ingredients selected for this ceremony. The journey begins with a fresh kaffir lime foot bath, followed by a Burmese steam that includes zingiber and “naiyaraap,” known for soothing aching muscles. This is followed by a refreshing tanaka and lime scrub, commonly used by Burmese people to bring a beautiful glow to the skin. Tanaka is also a natural sun-block and it protects the skin from environmental toxins. The ceremony continues with a green tea body wrap, which detoxifies, prevents infections and moisturizes the skin. A traditional Mandalay massage completes the experience. It uses similar techniques to traditional Thai massage, but its uniqueness lies in the stronger pressure applied to the body.

Lanna Ceremony - 3 Hours 20 Minutes USD 295 - The Lanna Signature Ceremony draws inspiration from the Northern Thai culture, and reveals the hidden treasures of Chiang Mai’s beauty rituals. The ceremony begins with a herbal foot bath infused with fresh miang, a popular healing herb from this part of the country followed by a luxurious herbal bath preparing the body for the Oriental body glow. The ceremony continues with a body wrap, using fang, another Lanna ingredient used to awaken and refresh the skin. A Lanna massage completes this experience. The body is tapped rhythmically with a stick made from the bark of tamarind tree. This relaxes the muscles in preparation for a warm herbal oil massage and warm herbal compresses for the head and feet.
