It doesn’t get much more relaxing than sipping hot ginseng tea, then noshing fresh tropical fruit and light yogurt while an expert pedicurist scrubs, buffs and polishes your feet to perfection — which is exactly what we experienced during our most-recent visit to Banyan Tree Spa Macau, a luxury Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Macau spa located on the second floor of Banyan Tree Macau hotel. Unless you’re enjoying back-to-back treatments like we did, these refreshments, along with cold glasses of water, are graciously served during the spa’s “Calm Time,” a 30-minute period added to every body treatment or salon service that also includes a luxurious foot bath.
Spa-goers will find several refreshments provided at Banyan Tree Spa Macau. They will also notice that relaxation extends far beyond the treatments themselves, with the spa’s therapists giving them soothing foot baths while they sip on herbal refreshments during their services. All guests are offered ginseng tea that warms the body from the inside out along with yogurt and nuts in the relaxation lounge. And after your treatment, you will be offered an orchid-covered Celadon tea set, which adds a bit of luck to the experience as the orchids are used to invoke beauty and prosperity — soothing sentiments after a Zen-inducing treatment.
