Invoking the rejuvenating powers of the ocean and steeped in Thai traditions, Pimãandaby HARNN is a sea-inspired sanctum of serenity nestled within Kimpton Kitalay Samui. Deeply personalised and gently nurturing treatments, delivered with Kimpton’s signature heartfelt touch, lull guests into a profound sense of relaxation as mind, body andsoul find respite and restoration amidst a calm, tropical-themed haven.
Ensconced within the peaceful Spagarden, Pimãanda by HARNN’s distinctive setting is a continuation of the resort’s harmonious, locally-infused design language. Contemporary Thai motifs, materials and furnishings create strong visual connections with local Thai culture, while rustic wood elements and a serene olive-green hue evoke the lush tranquility of the tropical surrounds. The signature scent of sea salt and patchouli wafts through the air, calming the senses and soothing the soul as laidback beach melodies play softly in the background.
Inspired by the Manora dance-dramas from southern Thailand, the spa’s signature treatment shares its name with the spa –Pimãanda –and invites guests to indulge in head-to-toe pampering worthy of a goddess. Highlights include the ‘Kasi-Thara Bath Ritual’, a bubble milk bath soak with fresh flowers, as well as the ‘Trio of Bliss’ massages that combine Thai massage, yoga stretching and Swedish therapy with warm massage oils. Finally, the experiential journey ends with a traditional mini ‘Sound Gong’ session to restore the sensitive inner balance of body and mind.
“Every element of Pimãanda by HARNN, from our uniquely designed therapies and relaxing environment to our soothing playlists and warm tea infusions, is carefully curated to immerse guests into a restorative paradise. Local influences infuse deep meaning into each wellness experience, such as the Thai fairytale of Manora’s journey that inspired our ‘Paradise of Wondrous Sea’ signature spa treatment –creating a truly memorable journey towards relaxation that will leave guests exhilarated and rejuvenated,” said Michael Janssen, General Manager, Kimpton Kitalay Samui
Pimãanda by HARNN’s personalised spa journeys are grouped into classic, seasonal and special occasion treatments, which can be enjoyed as part of a curated programme/package with champagne and afternoon tea for celebrations at the spa. Treatments feature certified organic and natural botanical selections from HARNN, each influenced by traditional Thai culture with a modern twist. Vegetarian and vegan treatments are also available, along with special children’s relaxation therapies such as samba-inspired rhythmic massages and animal-inspired yoga practices.
Post-treatment, guests can enjoy a full set of HARNN aromatic bath amenities for an indulgent bath experience, then settle down to savour warm Tichaa by HARNN organic tea infusions to improve blood circulation, as well as healthy organic snacks that highlight Koh Samui flavours such as coconut and kalamare (a caramel-like Thai toffee).
