As the annual Sakura cherry blossom blooms in Japan you too can experience the wonders of this beautiful flower with the 90-minute Ritual of Sakura treatment at The Okura Spa. The Sakura flower has great symbolism in Japan. Celebrated with picnics under the blossoms, a practice known as ‘hanami’, the flowers are also associated with the ephemeral or transient nature of life, reminding us to seize our opportunities and to enjoy what nature has to offer.
Nowhere is that better encapsulated than in The Ritual of Sakura treatment, which begins with a gentle 10-minute footbath and cleansing ritual using a Sakura salt scrub to soften the skin. This is followed by a 30-minute exfoliating Sakura glowing body scrub to remove old and dry skin. Finally, a 50-minute massage using essential Sakura oil relaxes and revives tired muscles. It also helps to protect because Sakura is rich in antioxidants that strengthen the body’s ability to fight against oxidative damage.
The Ritual of Sakura is available daily at The Okura Spa from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., during 1 April – 30 June 2018. Priced at Baht 3,900++ per person.
