A Wonderland Spa at JW Marriott Emerald Bay

An artistic sketch of mushrooms and a handwritten message on the wall, ‘What size would you like to be?’ sets the tone for the surprising experience at Spa Chanterelle.

Enter the fairy tale world of Alice in Wonderland, where there are no limits to your imagination. A pair of standing white owl figures at the entrance to greet you? Pink flamingo birds covered in seashells? Spa Chanterelle is unlike any other spas and defies your expectations of what a spa should be.

The spa’s whimsical design is consistent with the overall colorful, fantastical resort concept at JW Marriott Emerald Bay Phu Quoc, developed by famed American architect, Bill Bensley. But don’t be fooled by the unconventional, playful design of the spa. The spa menu is a serious matter. Guests are presented with a comprehensive menu of treatment offerings designed to deliver four distinctive benefits – Calm, Indulge, Invigorate and Renew. Choose a Lomi Lomi massage for calm or how about the Jet Lag Cure to invigorate? Though the options can be overwhelming, the knowledgeable spa staff is on hand to recommend suitable treatments based on an evaluation form completed by guests. Read More
