Krabi’s Healing Properties!

Had a particularly stressful year or simply feel the need to catch your breath and recharge your batteries? Why not enjoy a rejuvenating holiday with a difference? Top quality spa and yoga sanctuaries, where you can immerse yourself both physically and mentally in a selection of therapies designed to boost mind, body and spirit, are thankfully no longer the preserve of the elite. In Krabi, wellness travellers and burnt out executives alike, can all enjoy a healthy and revitalising holiday in some of the best spa resorts in Thailand. Guests can rest assured that they are in safe hands too, as Krabi has more than its fair share of professional therapists with a long tradition in herbal medicine and the ancient art of Thai massage.

Krabi has a superb range of affordable hotels that take wellness holidays to a new level – these beautiful Krabi resorts tend to concentrate on relaxed yoga workouts, luxurious spa treatments, indulgent Thai massage and extravagant beauty therapies, rather than rigid or austere health regimes. One of the best in class is the sumptuous Layana Resort and Spa located in the breathtaking Mu Koh Lanta National Park, on the delightful holiday island of Koh Lanta. This beachfront resort is a breath of fresh air in more ways than one – even its stunning Thai architecture has been specifically designed to blend into and compliment the secluded grounds, creating an absolute haven of peace and tranquillity. Guests can take advantage of soothing Thai massages and gentle yoga work outs or relax in the saunas, jacuzzis and hydro-massage pools. A holistic collection of beauty treatments, including body scrubs ad facials, completes a comprehensive package purely devised to spoil and indulge.

The five star Rayavadee Spa Resort enjoys an idyllic location on the sweeping sands of stunning Pra Nang beach, just outside the Krabi Marine National Park. The lush, tropical gardens and lavish accommodation are a magical environment in which to enjoy a wonderful assortment of spa therapies, guaranteed to leave each and every guest feeling as good as new.

Or, for an all encompassing, health conscious holiday try the Paradise Koh Yao, which supplements its exclusive Thai herb steam treatments and daily yoga classes with wholesome and nutritious, yet utterly delectable cuisine. This lovely resort overlooks Phang Nga Bay and affords dramatic views of the towering limestone cliffs that the region is so well known for. It also offers private accommodation in the form of individual villas located next to a tranquil and secluded beach. And the therapeutic outdoor spa only employs one hundred percent natural, herbal ingredients in its sauna, massage and beauty treatments.

The Adora Spa at the Maritime Park Spa Resort is famous for its traditional take on Thai therapy which includes a replenishing face mask made from local honey (and almost good enough to eat!) and the exotic sounding ‘southern spice body wrap’ in its range of remedies.

If yoga is your thing, then Keiritas Yoga, located on the famous Krabi island of Phi Phi is an ideal choice. This spiritual retreat offers a huge variety of yoga classes for all levels and class sizes, from large groups to one-on-one tuition with your own personal guru for guidance.

On the other hand, the emphasis is very much on romance at the Montra Spa, located in top Krabi tourist resort, Ao Nang. Here starry-eyed guests can share candlelit Jacuzzis filled with delicate rose petals or standard massages, scrubs and facials.

However, if the potential cost of staying in a spa resort will play too heavily on your mind and thus outweigh the positive effects, you could always opt to stay in budget accommodation and frequent the many stand alone spas in Krabi Town and Ao Nang instead.
