TRADITIONAL THAI TREATMENTS
In the beautiful province of Trat, nestled in the Thailand’s southeastern corner, wellness and spa retreats are fast- becoming a major reason travellers are flocking to this unique corner of the Gulf. But, throw away any notions you might have about luxury treatments and expensive facials at this particular spot. The treatments in this authentically Thai region are centred around local tradition and customs, and encourage a closeness to nature, whilst also being excellent value for money.
In the small community of the Bo Rai district, spa-goers are invited to unwind and relax…inside a chicken coop. Believe it or not, this ‘herbal sauna’ is considered an amazing way to cleanse your body and is sworn by locals as the ultimate spa treatment. And that’s not all that’s on offer at the utterly authentic Spa de Chong. Traditional Thai massages, Mud baths and healing nature trails await…
BE AT ONE WITH NATURE
It’s no secret Thailand is home to some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world. From the crystal clear sea water to the dense and thick jungles, breathtaking nature resides wherever you look. It’s no wonder so many resorts choose Thailand as their base: being in nature is the perfect way to reconnect with yourself, far from the maddening noises and crowds of the city.
In the northernmost corner of Thailand, The Golden Triangle, lies the city of Chiang Rai, where you can find some of the worlds most private wellness resorts.
There’s the Phu Chaisai Mountain Resort, nestled deep in the thick jungles above Chiang Rai town. This gorgeous luxury retreat is a network of bamboo villas set high up in the hills, working perfectly in harmony with its surroundings. The spa focuses on tranquility, and the world-class treatments encourage the restoration of both the body and the mind.
Then, there’s the all-inclusive, eco-conscious Museflower Retreat & Spa. This oasis is set on the flats surrounding Chiang Rai, neighbouring a small lake. Their specialist spa treatments are inspired by nature, and the seasons, with Monsoon season in Thailand having a huge influence in particular.
