I had been searching around for a health resorts to provide relaxing excursion for my spa members for quite a while until I found Pavana last December. Since then I had been to Pavana with two small groups of members, each time 6 to 8 of us, with me being the group leader.
Thanks to the professional support of Pavana's Retreat Manager Khun Tulip, all of my guests enjoyed their stay with full satisfaction and all claimed they would return in near future for more good time to pamper themselves.
Pavana is not a luxurious Resorts, I must say, but it is totally sufficient n adequate, and is more than fair in its total offering for its price. I considered it a very good value for money choice as compared to a lot of spa & detox resorts in Chiangmai, Thailand or even in Bali, which I had also researched on.
We indulged ourselves daily with early morning meditation and yoga class in Pavana's signature yoga Sala up hill, overlooking picturesque scenery of the green valley in morning mist. Following a morning stretch out with a Thai steam hot bath n professional Thai massage in open air Sala, with birds singing as natural background music. Everyday we enjoyed sumptuous vegetarian dishes n organic raw food, all freshly picked from the hotel's own organic farm. We tried a one day detox program as a sampler. Together with a pre-cleansing vegetarian diet, this one day short program worked like miracle to all of us. It was quite amazing to see how much our body could be toned by just adjusting our diet. Of course, I believe the fresh ionized mountain air, the early morning yoga and the tranquil atmosphere all had added credit to it too.
All in all, it was very pleasant experience for myself n my spa member guests. We enjoyed the genuine kindness and hospitality extended by all Pavana staffs during our stays. Though they may not be able to speak our language well n there were some communication problems, but isn't exploring foreign culture n trying to make sense of ourselves with people speaking different language part of the fun in traveling after all? The staffs' genuine smiles were what I liked most. They made us felt we were special and welcomed in a hotel they all loved so much themselves. I heard the staffs are all from the neighborhood community, no wonder they extended a different kind of genuine hospitality one normally can't find in starred luxurious hotel chain.
I would definitely come back for more good time. Thank you once again to all the Pavana staffs in making this place such a nice destination, allowing us to bring home a renewed self.
