My morning walk along the beach had made me tired...
OK, bad pun, I know,
but I bet you smiled...or perhaps grimaced?
For the traditional Thai massage I was about to "enjoy",
I first had to don this outfit.
No oils are used and it is the pressure of the hands(and feet) of the therapist
that does all the work.
But what makes Prana (the word means "Life Force"in Sandskrit) different.
I asked myself this question over the days that I spent here.
Although the property has only been open to the public for three years,
they offer a level of service excellence that more established venues would find hard to beat.
But for me, aside from the extraordinary service
by staff who were originally labourers during the construction of the lodge,
the two biggest differentials are:
The spectacular art work in each suite as well as the public spaces...
And the immaculately prepared food.
Well done to Chef Morne and his waiters for meals beautifully prepared and served!
And not a single need for "Is everything alright"? Before you have even taken a mouthful.
Serve from the left, clear from the right was the order of the day.
Kudos to all concerned.
To Gail, Meagan and Tim...
many thanks for hosting me...and I hope that we will meet again soon.
