Developed and conceptualised by Banyan Tree Spa, The Rainforest is a complete hydrothermal experience combining the best of European spa and hydrothermal therapy with the essence of Asian wellness philosophy to create a haven of serenity, warmth and comfort and to complement the romance of travel at Banyan Tree.
With eight different hydrothermal therapy experiences, The Rainforest Trail is designed for a romantic experience, to soothe and revitalise your body, presenting a truly holistic and rejuvenating wellness experience.
Embark on The Rainforest Trail and surrender yourself to an invigorating Rain Walk. Be caressed with a generous cascade of warm water to cleanse your body, preparing it for The Rainforest experience.
Feel your tension melting away in this steam chamber. With a high temperature, heavy perspiration is induced which in turn promotes the elimination of one’s internal impurities. A salt scrub is available for your use, to further complement the detoxification process. Your immune system also receives a boost as circulation improves.
This is an ideal introduction for your first detoxifying treatment. High humidity steam gently warms the body to stimulate the blood circulation while your mind slowly relaxes with the therapeutic herbal aromas infused into the cabin.
Expect a sensory sensation in the pre-heated Rasul chamber as therapeutic mud, with detoxifying effects, is applied to the body. The chamber is beautifully designed with a ceiling filled with twinkling starlights for a tantalising experience.
The combination of steam and salt is the ideal remedy for enhancing respiration. The body heats up gradually which gently strengthens the circulatory system and initiates a purifying and detoxifying process.
This unique and refreshing experience helps boost one’s blood circulation. Rub fresh ice on your body to tighten your skin while enhancing your circulatory system. Recommended for those who wish to address a specific cellulite-prone area. The Ice Fountain complements the Finnish Sauna experience.
Tantalise your senses and choose from varied rain shower experiences, including a Summer Storm, an Arctic Mist and a Tropical Rainbow. These showers are designed to increase or reduce body temperature, making them a good complement between your hydrothermal treatments and bring the showering experience to a whole new level.
Surrender yourself to the warmth of the summer rain, followed by cool mist depicting the nearing of a storm. The intensity of the rain increases, with lightning overhead, the sound of thunder and the lighting changes accordingly to re-create an authentic Summer Storm.
Experience the Arctic Mist amidst the soothing ambience of The Rainforest. The warmth of the shower cools to a brisk shower and the musical sounds of ice and wind creates the feeling of a winter snow fall. The shower alternates from warm to cool to give a contrast in temperature.
The warm mist signals the start of a tropical shower and a light sprinkling of rain warms the body and massages the feet. In the distance, the call of birds and jungle animals adds to the Tropical Rainbow feel.
Water jets are used for the treatment of stress and various types of muscles aches. It is a soft acupressure over all the body, which calms the mind and reduce tension.
A Guide to The Rainforest
The most important rule of thermal bathing is to allow time for your body temperature to cool and normalise after using a warm hydrothermal experience. Body cooling can be accelerated by using the various showers on offer and the Ice Fountain. Please refrain from using the Hot Dip Pool after taking a warm room treatment.
A period of passive relaxation on a lounger is always recommended to complete the therapeutic process. The greatest benefits are achieved when the bather adheres to these rules and guidance from the Hydrothermal Host.
All sessions (except hand, foot hair treatments and the Rainforest Experience) include a 30-minute Calm Time, which comprises a welcome footbath and post-treatment refreshments & relaxation
