Lot 02 – Signature Spa package
Signature Spa package at HARNN Heritage Spa at the stunningly beautiful InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort
The winning bidder can choose one of the 6 signature journeys (Journey of Marble Mountain, Journey of the Oriental Rose, Journey of the Siamese Jasmine, Journey of the Oriental Herbs, Journey of the Eurasians, Journey of the Oriental Hammam).
One of our popular and unique journey is The “Journey of Marble Mountains” package at the HARNN Heritage Spa starts with a personal consultation, and it may be unlike anything you’ve experienced before. You’ll be asked to fill out a questionnaire that is equal parts medical and metaphysical, ranging from health and skin problems to your favorite color, food, weather—even your personality type and greatest fears.
The point of all of this is to determine your natural element. Traditional Vietnamese medicine, called Dong Y, is derived from Chinese medicine and focuses on restoring balance between yin and yang and finding harmony among the Five Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The flow of energy in our bodies is thought to follow the same path as nature: wood kindles fire, fire forms ash (earth), earth solidifies to form metal, metal (minerals) enriches water, water nourishes wood (trees).
After your therapist finds your element, she will create a bespoke natural oil blend that best suits you. Your package will then include Dong Y treatment on a warm bed made from Danang’s famous marble, long regarded for its therapeutic properties.
You’ll find this pattern of five frequently repeated throughout Vietnam. Marble Mountains, a popular attraction around 40 minutes from the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, are better known to the Vietnamese as Ngu Hanh Son, or Five Elements Mountains, with each one named for a natural element.
You’ll also encounter the Five Elements in Vietnamese cuisine, where each taste (sour, bitter, sweet, spicy and salty) corresponds to an element. At a meal, there is an effort to balance out these five tastes, as well as to appeal to the five senses and nourish five internal organs of the body. The power of five is seen in many other aspects of Vietnamese culture, such as a visual balance of colors.
So are you fire or water? Find out at HARNN Heritage Spa at InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort.
