At first I thought a facial over a full body massage was going to be a bit of a waste. But having had a number of massages during this trip, I opted for Shironasya which helps deal with the head and sinuses. Pure bliss. After a quick foot cleanse I was laid out and treated to an oil massage, a... More

We tried Ayurvedic style of foot massage. It was a great relief to my foot after whole day of walking. Even though it was an hour session, it helps a lot. The masseurs did a great job. And on our last day after we checked out, we had Traditional Lanna Oil massage for an hour session. We were given 5... More

too expensive for what it's worth, it was just at my hotel and I had to give it a try. I would give it another try and hopefully the experience will be better.

I decided that one of the things I'd do while in Chiang Mai was spoil myself with a nice spa treatment. I chose Nakara Spa because it offered Indian Ayurvedic treatments which appealed to me (I'm not a fan of the rough style of traditional Thai massages). I had the one-hour Shirobhyanga head neck and shoulders treatment which was deeply... More

I know that you can get massages a lot cheaper ever couple of steps but this was a little special for not a lot more and it was truly amazing.

I had a heavenly experience for 2 hours at a beautifully decorated Northern Thailand style spa. It started with traditional Thai massage followed by oil massage & then pressing with a hot ball of steamed herbs.....,boy, the trip to Chiang Mai would be worthy just to have again this massage!

Im usually skeptical of hotel spas in terms of the experience and value but Nakara Spa exceeded all my expectations. I've been to spas all around Thailand and Nakara Spa is way up there with the best of them.

We were so pleased to find the Nakara spa on our visit to Chiang Mai - service was 5-star, the rates were half that of our neighboring hotel, and the Thai massage was better than anything we had in Bangkok. Next visit we will stay at the Ping Nakara to better enjoy the spa and garden restaurant.

A real spa and great embience, lovely staff and terrific massage. Well worth a visit among the multitude of spa's in Chang Mai. I had the back-only massage and it was sublime. Was sensual, strong and I went into a sleep coma that evening :-) Was perfect.

We had 4 spas in our 4-day trip. The place was clean and they provided us a couple room with private bathroom and toilet. I have to say I didn't know how great the oil was. No special thing and I felt I had done nothing after the massage but with oily body. This was not my first time have... More

ChairatPingNakara, Owner at Nakara Spa, responded to this review

Dear Guest, We appreciate having the comment from you and your wife, and are sorry that some of our style did not appeal to you. In fact, our Ayurvedic spa is unique in Chiang Mai so the treatments are not like a traditional Thai massage. All the oils used are developed from Ayurvedic traditions, and as such are totally organic,... More
