The Spa at The Datai
The concept of the resort’s spa is centred on the Art of Ramuan, a Malaysian herbal tradition.Grounded to its heritage through the sense of place, philosophy and origins, the spa expresses the Ramuan heart in ways that resonates with the local culture. Beautifully integrated into the lush surroundings of the tropical rainforest, The Spa at The Datai is out to please. The signature Datai treatment is the Ramuan Ritual. Starting with a coconut milk foot soak and foot scrub made of round rice, wild ginger, pandan leaf and kaffir Lime, the ritual is followed by a soothing head massage with rose petals and sandalwood.
