Hot List 2008

Spa Alila Cha-Am, Petchaburi

Tel: 66-32-709-555

Soft sandstone and brushed copper walls decorate the reception area at this poolside spot in the Alila Cha-Am resort, contrasting with the five minimalist candlelit rooms. In these, the Alila Signature Massage ($78) blends Balinese, Thai, and Swedish styles (plus aromatherapy); therapists set themselves apart by running expert hands across the client's whole body, establishing and maintaining a deep connection for 90 minutes. Mosquito bite victims should request the spearmint, patchouli, and lime oil blend, intoxicating to humans but repellent to insects. Linger over guava or lemongrass sorbet before heading back to the beach, and don't forget such handsomely packaged spa products as the bamboo body buff with a hint of Absolut vodka (massages, $60–$66).
