Tao Garden is the creation of renown Taoist Master Mantak Chia. I had heard of him and the spa for years but never had the opportunity to visit until this March. The design and layout of the grounds is fascinating. Everything is in an octagonal shape with highlights of water and Taoist symbols. The reservation includes daily buffet meals which were not only healthful but delicious. The very attentive staff had no issues making a special dish when the children of my friends refused to eat anything healthy.
The spa facility was top notch, exquisitely designed and maintained with expert staff that obviously knew their stuff and had been there for years. The clinic while not sterile white immaculate was orderly enough to not alarm me. I found their holistic assessment of my health, combining both the technology of the West and the wisdom of the East to be right on the mark. I indulged in many of their recommended treatments and found them all helpful--particularly the clinic related ones.
The only quibble I have with Tao Garden, as I had read prior to my trip, are their townhouses. It took 3 rooms before we found one we liked. They all were individually decorated but all of them showed signs of significant wear, even the last one that we stayed in. It was beautifully decorated but the balcony roof had holes. As I later confirmed, the townhouses are time shares, so Tao Garden does not technically own the buildings. But still I would think there must be a way to have the owners maintain them to a certain standard.
But other than that the entire trip was wonderful! I have already recommended Tao Garden to all my friends. I returned home feeling and looking ten years younger!!
