What's a vacation without a good spa treatment ? We happened to pick up a brochure of a spa, that featured many spa packages, not too pricey and from the many brochures we picked up, this one seemed decent and with attractive pictures.
So we set off searching for Dreamy Spa, yes very wierd name though. However the experience at the spa was fantastic.

I picked up a 3 hour package costing THB 1700 which consists of 1 hour Balinese full body massage, a vanilla body scrub, facial treatment, manicure and pedicure. The therapist started with massage, followed by facial, manicure and pedicure and a foot treatment with electric pulses. It was only 2 hours and 30 minutes.
I was wondering what happened to my body scrub and thought I got confused. So i got dressed up and went to the waiting area. The owner looked at her watch and gave a funny look and went inside. She came and informed me, without any prompting from me, that the therapist missed out the body scrub and apologized and asked me to proceed to the treatment area again. Now, that is what i call honesty.
But overall, the treatment was fantastic and throughout the 3 hours, we got to know the owner and the therapists better. They are from the north eastern province of Udon Thani and came out to seek a better life for themselves. They could have choose to be like many other girls from their province who end up as prostitutes in Bangkok, Phuket or Samui. Instead they choose to do something that they can be proud of. Hats off to these girls !
So if you are in Koh Lanta Yai and seeking the perfect spa treatment, forget that fancy boutique spa, go to Dreamy Spa. They are located at the main road along Long Beach and open from 10am to 09pm.
