Pepperation Spa experience at Fusion Resort Phu Quoc, Vietnam

Inspired by one of Phu Quoc’s most famous exports, pepper, the “Pepperation” program at Fusion Resort Phu Quoc, is a hands-on spa experience where visitors make their own pepper scrub that is then used in their therapy. Surrounded by the spa’s orchard of 88 pepper trees, spa-goers get an introduction to the spice before grinding it down for their treatment (and sampling some while being put to work). The freshly ground pepper is blended with turmeric powder, rice powder and ginger powder, along with more pepper powder (green and white) and coconut oil – to create an ingredient list that wouldn’t be out of place in the restaurant. The full program also includes a Natural Living Pepper massage, using a custom-blended heating black pepper oil only available at Maia Spa. Pepperation takes around 2.5 hours, including a meditation session beneath the trees. All spa treatments are included in the room rate.
