Spa indulgence need not be just the domain of adults, with beachfront resort Alma’s Le Spa launching a menu dedicated to children replete with foot and hand baths, massages and a facial incorporating tropical fruit and reflexology.
Featuring 13 separate treatment villas sprinkled onto the landscape overlooking Long Beach on Vietnam’s Cam Ranh peninsula, Le Spa’s new kids menu is tailored to children aged six to 11 years.
The menu comprises four gentle 30-minute treatments, underscored with natural products, named “Soft Tootsies”, “Princess Hands”, “My Cocoon” and “Supreme Facial Ritual”.
Soft Tootsies starts out with a foot bath followed by a gentle exfoliation with organic orange scrub, and a mini foot massage with moisturizing cream. Princess Hands comprises a hand bath, gentle exfoliation with organic lemongrass salt scrub, and a mini hand massage with moisturising cream.
My Cocoon makes for a relaxing massage treatment with light pressure applied to the child’s arms, legs and back that encompasses organic luxury olive oil. Using finely grained tropical fruits, the Supreme Facial Ritual involves face reflexology and lifting and smoothing massage movements.
“We believe you’re never too young for a bit of pampering,” said Alma’s managing director Herbert Laubichler-Pichler. “Many luxury hotel and resort spas only cater to adults but we feel it’s unfair for the kids to miss out on wellness experiences so we welcome them to come along to Le Spa with their parents.”
Le Spa also caters to teenagers aged from 12 to 17 years with a selection of treatments from Le Spa’s main menu on offer according to the advice of the spa’s therapists. Treatments for teenagers including massages and facials are only sold as a complement to a parent’s treatment and offered in the same treatment room as the parent.
Bold, spacious and emblematic of Vietnam’s maturation as a destination, the independently owned and operated Alma features 14 food and beverage outlets and a cascade of 12 beachfront swimming pools. Other highlights include a 6000sqm water park, a science museum, 18-hole putting green, kids club, youth club, water sports centre, sports courts, cinema, amphitheater, convention centre, gymnasium and yoga room. The resort also runs complimentary guided garden tours of its nursery garden, herb garden and chicken farm to equip guests with handy tips on how to nurture their own veggie patch and look after chickens.
