Waiting area

The spacious reception area, with the sound of trickling water, is instantly calming.

After filling out a simple survey, we were led through the hallway to our treatment room “沐” (Mu).

The suite, furnished with materials imported from Bali and Europe, is equipped with a giant bed, a window-side lounge, two massage beds, a changing room, a shower/steam room, a bathtub, and a separate bathroom. All in an elegant beige and wood color scheme.

Taipei city isn’t always pretty to look at, and the shades of green at the window neatly blocked out the hustle and bustle.

The treatment we reserved for, Traveler’s Perk (1 hr 45 min, 4,200 NTD), is a unique approach that aims to reduce mental stress and physical tension. It all started with a warm foot bath at the window-side lounge bed…

Then, we laid down on the heated massage beds, and commenced the 1 hour massage. Our therapists incorporated various techniques including palm pressure, thumb rolling, long strokes, kneading, Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi and Chinese Tapotement, and we soon entered a half-conscious state of relaxation.


Massage beds

Below the headrest, a bowl of fresh flowers. What a pleasure to gaze at :)


Fresh flowers

Before we know it, an hour has gone by. When we opened our eyes, the hot bath was already drawn (we did not hear a sound of it), with refreshments prepared by the tub side.

Rose petals

What I was most impressed with, other than the amazing suite itself, was the professionalism of our therapists. The manner in which they moved about was smooth and comforting, and each of their gestures seemed to be calculated with utmost consideration. If you are looking for a pampering experience, book yourself a treatment at Wellspring Spa. You will not be disappointed.
