Ensconced in an oasis, the Dusit Devarana Resort & Spa spells luxury from the word go. The lush greenery and water bodies that surround the Devarana Spa have been created to lend privacy and tranquility.
About the spa: ‘Devarana’, pronounced te-wa-run, has its origins in Thai-Sanskrit which means the ‘garden in heaven’. It dates back to ancient Thai literature, called Tribhumphraruang, also known as Traibhumikatha, written by Phraya Lithai. In this literary work, the writer described this particular garden as situated at the gate of heaven, surrounded by gardens and ponds, with a heavenly scent and a nurturing environment. In the garden, people can hear soft music played by the harp, flute and other traditional musical instruments. In addition, the décor of the garden glimmers with silver and gold and is filled with natural stones and gems. The Devarana Spa offers an atmosphere of ultimate relaxation in its very own healing garden. With an emphasis on Eastern pampering, the Thai health and beauty practices have been sourced from age-old therapies and updated with modern knowledge to revitalise guests.
