The Dos and Dont’s of Spa Treatment for First-time Goers

So, you’ve finally decided to find out what all the fuss about spas is about. Let us start off by telling you that that you’re in for quite a treat! Going to a spa for some pampering is about as close to royal treatment as normal people like us can get. Since it’s your first time to do so, however, we can understand that you might feel a little clueless as to what you should do and what to expect. We’ll give you the lowdown in this guide so you don’t have to worry.

The Dos:

The best spas usually have long queues of people wanting to receive treatment. This is particularly true if the spa is in a popular tourist destination. You wouldn’t want to waste hours just waiting for your turn, so it’s best to book an appointment at least one day ahead. When booking one, let them know that it’s your first time and that you’d need some help deciding which services to go for. It can all get pretty confusing, especially since newer types of treatments are constantly being introduced. Ask the attendant for a recommendation based on your needs, and then find out exactly what that would include. Additionally, some spas have male and female employees. If you have a preference, make sure to let the attendant know so they can make the arrangements. After you’ve made a reservation, make sure you show up on time. There are other people who want to receive treatment as well, so practice common courtesy so that you’re not getting in the way of others’ enjoyment.

The Don’ts:

You want to ensure that your big spa day is going to be enjoyable, which means there are a few things that you should be careful to avoid. For one thing, don’t forget to practice good grooming beforehand. Just because you’re going to be treated like royalty anyway doesn’t mean that you can enter looking like a slob. That means you need to bathe, wash your feet, and trim your nails. This has to do with proper hygiene, and it ensures that the therapists, technicians, and other spa-goers are comfortable. You should also not forget to tell the spa employees about any allergies you might have. There could be substances in the products they use that might trigger an attack, and you don’t want to ruin what should’ve been an amazing experience. Don’t forget to take your manners with you. The spa employees are there to serve you, and you wouldn’t want to risk alienating them. Speak politely, express your gratitude when you can, and just practice what being a decent person means. These will preserve the atmosphere of the spa and the entire experience—not just for you, but for everyone else. Finally, try to avoid going to the spa on a full stomach. Trust us—it might not end well.


That’s all there is to it! Following these rules will get you through your first spa day without any trouble. Apart from that, remember to take your time to fully enjoy the experience. We guarantee you’ll want to come back for more. We’re a beach resort in Khao Lak, get in touch today to book your stay at The Waters Khao Lak by Katathani.
