In keeping with Thai culture and its close connection with nature it is no surprise that Thailand is a popular choice for those wanting to enjoy the tranquility and relaxation of a spa hotel or resort. With some many to choose from we have carefully handpicked a selection of leading Thai Spa resorts to help you decide, these resorts are located in our destination of the month, Phuket, and offer a first-class hotel experience in nature’s paradise.
Located beachside on Phuket’s West Coast sits the lush Anantara Layan spa and resort. This romantic retreat sits on a secluded stretch of the Layan Beach overlooking the tropical Andaman Sea and offers a tranquil sanctuary away from the busyness of the Phuket city streets. Perhaps its most endearing feature is the unparalleled spa which adopts the healing traditions of Thailand’s rich culture in relaxing scent infused salons.
The Surin Phuket
Phuket’s West Coast beaches are sprinkled with luxurious spa resorts that elegantly embellish the island’s coastline. Perhaps one of the most notable of these oases is The Surin Phuket that lies across the white sand dunes of the Pansea beach. The Surin offers over 100 delightful little cottages manifesting authentic Thai architecture that are furnished with the most sumptuous materials. The resort exists as a microcosmic paradise and promises you’ll leave feeling fresh and reinvigorated.
Another one of the island’s crown jewels, the Como Phuket is splendour embodied. A match made in heaven, interior designer, Paola Navone, has created a fusion of classic Thai composition with the charm of a sleek modern finish. Overlooking the striking limestones of Phang Nga Bay this neat resort creates a sense of adventure in the comfort of top of the range luxury. Juxtaposing the modernity of the hotel that is fitting to the landscape with the thatch-roofed wooden bungalows this resort has become a natural part of the island’s tree-line. Like its other sister and brother resorts, Como Phuket can boast of a spa like no other with unequalled treatments that dazzle the senses.
Banyan Tree Phuket
Leaving Phuket’s beach front, in an opening from the dense forestland of the island, lies the Banyan Tree Phuket surrounded by one of Thailand’s natural saltwater lagoons. This plush resort typifies traditional Thai architecture alongside a lavish interior furnished with the most comfortable deluxe materials. It has everything any top-of-the-line hotel resort should provide from its thoughtful selection of amenities to its 18- hole golf course. If sport is not your thing then its multi-award winning spa designed to reestablish your body’s tranquility will surely satisfy your desires.
