Cranking up the relief box that is your air-con or blasting your face two inches from the strongest powered fan you can find are no doubt the domestic scenes of the moment as we escape the dusty, scorching and congested city streets of Yangon.

When it comes to pampering, the ladies don’t often require an excuse but these conditions undoubtedly place beauty spas as a wonderfully welcoming place to seek shelter, cool down and revitalise.  

D Spa which opened in January promises to do just that. Owned by D Family Business, the spa has already become a regular pamper station for Miss International Myanmar 2013, Gonyi Aye Kyaw.

Warm smiles greeted me in the spa which is split into two wings; one for men and the other for women. Spacious and comfortable treatment rooms dipped in aquatic colour schemes are adorned with stylish, complimentary dĂŠcor and await its clients who are simply spoiled for choice with its offers of indulgence.


No area of your body need feel neglected. Their services include everything from manicure spas, seaweed body wraps, Thai foot reflexology, aromatherapy massages, anti–oxidant and cleansing body scrubs and much more.

My skin has taken a bashing from the sun’s rays which means it screams for hydration through whatever lotions and potions are available. This calling was answered by the D Spa’s milk cleansing and sensual milky touch body treatment. Milk cleansing can be traced right back to ancient Egypt when Cleopatra herself was said to have enjoyed the beneficial properties of bathing in rose water and raw goat's milk â€“ the secret to her soft, smooth skin.

What’s good enough for Cleopatra is good enough for me. And at just 20,000 Kyats, for 60 minutes worth of being cleansed and exfoliated in cow’s milk, it seemed rude to pass up on an opportunity in which you can rightfully (ish) claim you left feeling like Ancient Egyptian royalty. After an hour of cleansing and exfoliating, finally topped off with a hydrating body lotion massage, silky smooth indeed I was. Highly recommended.

Special spa packages which are excellent value for money are also on offer costing between 50,000 kyats (150 minutes) to 105,000 Kyats (210 minutes). Feeling romantic? Couples can share the D Spa experience with the Romeo and Juliet package – a whole 270 minutes worth of luxurious pleasure which is of course minus looming heartbreak and tragedy.

For those who have newly arrived in Yangon, the jetlag revival package (60,000 kyats, 180 minutes) is definitely a good call. Tired eyes, dry, dull complexions and stiffness from being cooped up on long haul flights will be banished in a matter of minutes with a revitalisation facial, back and stretch massage and Thai foot reflexology.

D Spa prides itself on selection of imported high quality products which are of good value and suitable for all skin types. For its organic treatments, its beauticians use products which are specifically bought from small farmers in Myanmar to promote SMEs in the country.
