Banyan Tree Phuket is offering a new spa getaway package, Diet of Pleasures, now through March 2009, designed to keep weight issues off guests’ minds while offering them spa indulgences, fitness programs and healthy dining experiences.

At the heart of the package are Banyan Tree Phuket’s various spa offerings. The package includes signature treatments such as the Thai Classic, a massage that combines subtle stretching with rhythmic massaging and compressions to balance and stimulate energy flow. The spa’s Balinese treatment involves used of the thumb and palm to apply pressure with a unique blend of essential oils with warming qualities. Other included spa treatments, per couple, are: a 90-minute massage, body treats or hand and feet treatments; a two-hour luxury facial; a three-hour Thai Traditions spa package; a two-hour Rejuvenation package; a three-hour signature Rainmist experience; and a 30-minute in-villa massage lesson per couple.
