It is very important for us that our guests feel a sense of peace and harmony during and beyond their stay at Pilgrimage Village. The ever present nature and subtle environment design is the ideal setting for a soothing and relaxing experience for both the mind and the body. We offer a daily complimentary wellness program including yoga and tai chi, a perfect way to start a gorgeous day.
The ancient art of tai chi – a “meditation in motion” – promotes serenity through gentle movements – connecting the mind and body. In Vietnamese, the words mean cultivating (tai) energy (chi) – yet the derivation is said to be from the Chinese ‘t’ai chi ch’uan’ meaning supreme ultimate boxing. For thousands of years, the Vietnamese people have practixed tai chi for their physical & psychological wellbeing. It is a way of life bringing ourselves and the universe in total harmony. It can be practiced by virtually anyone regardless of age or health.
Yoga is an integration of physical, mental and emotional exercises designed to balance and unify the mind, body, and spirit. The goal of yoga is to bring the yogini closer to the divine – to attain perfect spiritual insight and tranquility during practice. Hence, the sanskrit word yoga literally means yoke, meaning to unite or attach to the divine. Yoga strengthens, promotes flexibility, tones the body, enhances vitality, alleviates stress, cultivates balance, and calms the mind. The yoga style we teach is a Vinyasa flow from one Hatha yoga posture to another, synchronising the breath with each movement. We welcome all levels from beginner upwards.
There are 7 main chakras or energy centres represented by colours. Each chakra impacts our physical, mental and spiritual health. How you feel, think and ultimately the choices you make will impact your chakras and make you who you are at the present moment. Cleansing of the chakras, both mentally & physically, energises and restores them. Specific yoga postures are used in this chakra cleansing class.

Vedanā means feeling or sensation in sanskrit. In Buddhist philosophy, an awareness and concentrated focus on Vedanā leads to enlightenment and the end of suffering. It is our intention to provide you with a memorable pleasant feeling or sensation that you take home with you, and remember forever in your heart.
Vedanā Wellness & Spa brings you an experience of spa life which we define as LUSH: Luxurious, Unpretentious, Sustainable and Healthy.
We use 100% natural ingredients that we carefully source, handle and blend, making sure there are no chemical or artificial components in our spa treatments. Where possible, we derive all spa products from our herb garden or locally from sustainable sources fresh from the markets in the morning. All our treatments are pure in style and substance, offering the unique flavours of Hue, Vietnam.
Wellbeing is promoted via relaxing elements in the spa design. Before or after the spa treatments, guests may stay in the spa to enjoy the jacuzzi, sauna and herbal steam or rest in grass-roofed shalas whilst sipping on our complimentary signature tea. All body treatments are enhanced with therapeutic essential oils.
Our goal is to indulge guests with a unique kind of spa experience, one that touches them in a way that evokes happy memories of Vietnam, yet also designed to relax, rejuvenate and restore via our highly trained spa professionals.
It is our belief that everyone we encounter is a gift. We are grateful for your gift, and hope that you will receive ours of care and appreciation with our compliments. We wish you a lush Vedanā experience.
