As well as the hectic nature of Thailand’s larger cities and towns, there are plenty of opportunities to kick back, relax and feel like you’re the only one that matters.
To truly get away from everything, choose a resort that is designed to cater for your every need and ensures you have a healthy, wholesome stay. The ‘wellness’ retreat at Six Senses Sanctuary is on the southern island of Phuket and is a great example of a place where time stands still. Its health programmes help get your Yin and Yang back in balance.
On Koh Chang, Thailand’s second-largest island, there is the V.J. Hotel and Health Spa. This lush resort is surrounded by long beaches while inland are thick forests and waterfalls. Alternatively, head north to the Jirung Health Village Hotel, in the valley town of Mae Rim. Unwind amid the mountains and check out the wellness and health programmes on offer, which includes yoga, cycling and a traditional massage.
Also up north is the internationally-renowned Tao Garden, in Chiang Mai. It offers programmes in meditation and a range of holistic medical treatments.
The Chiva-Som Health Resort in Hua Hin offers a personalized treatment package to ensure your body is truly balanced, along with fitness instructors for those who want a more physical retreat. If you have been overdoing things, the Absolute Sanctuary on Koh Samui can put things right, as it is a Moroccan-style boutique resort that pledges to offer life-changing treatments. Also on Koh Samui is the W Retreat, where luxury takes on new meaning in this clean and fresh resort.
