Thailand- Bangkok | Jul 1 2012 | (23:08:04 - EDT)
To celebrate National Papaya Month this September, select Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Thailand will feature exclusive experiences in honor of this delicious fruit. Properties including Le Méridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa, The St. Regis Bangkok and Aloft Bangkok – Sukhumvit 11 have created special spa treatments or cocktail recipes incorporating papaya, a fruit that is not only incredibly tasty but also contains many nutritional and medicinal properties.
Le Méridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa
In honor of National Papaya Month, Le Méridien will spotlight a special “60-Minute Sea Salt Papaya Scrub” featuring papain, a key ingredient in papaya promoting skin renewal and cell turnover. Papain exfoliates the skin to reveal glowing, softened skin. Vitamin A, E, C and anti-oxidants are added to the scrub which moisturize the skin, clear dirt and help remove dark spots. Additionally, papaya facial scrubs and face masks are available to tend to acne, sunburn and aging skin.
Le Méridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa invites you to see the world through new eyes when you discover the true sense of relaxation at Le SPA. The property’s spa facility offers world-class luxury with a customized menu of rejuvenating experiences that combine ancient and contemporary cultural methods and ingredients to revitalize the mind, body and spirit.

The resort is an idyllic enclave on exclusive Lamai Beach.
