A spa concept inspired by music and vibrational therapy has been revealed at the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort in Vietnam.

The approach has been created by global wellness consultancy Raison d’Etre with a view to helping guests quite literally tune into their bodies to achieve physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

Good vibrations
Mi Sol Spa is named after the tones in the musical scale – do, re, mi, fa, sol, la and ti – each of which has a specific vibration frequency and is claimed to enhance the flow of natural energy around the body. For example, mi – 528 hertz – is said to stimulate love and restore equilibrium, while it’s believed that sol – 741 hertz – helps to detoxify the body.

All treatments and rituals at the Mi Sol Spa are inspired by these tones and incorporate tuning forks to harness their frequencies. These are then blended with ancient wellness healing techniques and modern science to create a multisensory treatment experience.

“Sound is incredible, as vibrations affect all things and have untold powers, using these as tools can help reset, relax and rejuvenate your life,” says spa director Sri Ambarwati.

The goal is to help every spa client achieve complete relaxation and rejuvenation through the power of sound.

Anna-Cari Gund, managing director of Raison d’Etre says: “This has been a wonderful concept to work on and our team was truly inspired by the hotel’s original design and natural location.

“It’s something new and exciting which is guaranteed to surpass guests’ expectations and help them achieve a greater level of holistic fulfilment.”

Design by Bill Bensley
Surrounded by lush vegetation, the 39-hectare sanctuary is designed to feel separated from the outside world.

Visionary architect Bill Bensley is behind the building of the spa. He chose to create eight treatment villas that are based on the tube shape of local Quonset huts. Each is complemented with saunas and steamrooms, hammam beds, spa pools and marble bathtubs.

Guests can opt for Signature Mi Sol Spa experiences, bodywork treatments, scrubs, massages or facials, as well as frequent yoga sessions and sleep support therapies. The Re-Start Ritual, designed to cleanse and heal, is a particular highlight, along with Empower Me, to help people visualise their dreams, and Connecting Us, a treatment for couples or families seeking precious time together.

In addition to the sound therapy spa, InterContinental Danang is also home to a Bastien Gonzalez nail studio.
