An introduction to VLCC

Originating from India, VLCC is a comprehensive beauty and wellness concept helmed by experienced medical practitioners. The brand offers therapeutic, wellness, and beauty treatments. On a national scale, the beauty and wellness conglomerate is considered one of India’s leading wellness service providers. On an international scale, the conglomerate has a strong presence with over 300 locations in 13 countries across Asia, East Africa, and the GCC. 

VLCC at Avani+ Hua Hin Resort 

The wellness service provider continues on its globalisation journey by bringing its success from the Land of Festivals to the Land of Smiles, with its first outpost in the Avani+ Hua Hin Resort. Here, VLCC implements a concept that’s flexible, and thereby a concept that’s appealing to hotel guests. During your stay at the resort, you can dip in and out of the wellness program as desired. So, whether you prefer to follow a strict wellness regime or incorporate selected treatments into your vacation, the program caters to your preferences accordingly. 

VLCC is located within the resort’s open-air lobby. The fully-equipped space consists of 11 treatment rooms: 8 spa treatment rooms, 1 Hammam treatment room, 1 IV therapy room, and 1 health consultation room.

At this first-ever Thailand branch, guests can choose from tailor-made programs designed to cater to individual needs and wants. All customisable programs embody and endorse a holistic approach. These programs appeal to the mind, the body, and the soul by coalescing several components: modern medical testing and diagnostics, Ayurveda therapies, tailored diets, and tailored fitness activities. Ranging from one-day retreats to fourteen-day retreats, VLCC at Avani+ Hua Hin Resort covers four main areas: integrated wellness; beauty and weight management; immunity; and detoxification.
