"It's our goal to provide a private
space for our guests to totally relax their bodies and
souls in," Pissarro Spa's Manager Li explains.
This place has a lush, tree-lined location right next
to the HuaMei Street canal near TaiZhongGang (Taichung
Kang) Road. A big glass door welcomes guests and allows
lots of sunlight to flow in. Inside, one first comes
to the carpeted, spacious reception room, where various
natural products for body, face, hand and foot treatments
from Germany, Italy and France are displayed on shelves.
Without a doubt, the spa is designed to pamper customers
with six experienced and eager-to-serve beauticians.
Two programs here deserve special note--the German organic
oil treatment for pregnant women, and the French-style
crystal nail painting. There are a total of six private
rooms on the ground floor and basement level. A first-floor
room is solely reserved for couples, with two beds and
a private bathroom. The other five basement rooms cater
to female customers only. There is also a reading area
with lots of magazines and a dressing area with cosmetic
products available for one's convenience. All this makes
Pissarro an ideal place for a personal pampering.
