Top 6 Best Spa Resorts in Phuket, Thailand
Phuket has been pioneered for the art of bliss and its hotel spas as it has won many industries awards and accolades in the world. Here are listed some of the recommended spas on the island.
In Asia, spa has evolved into a concept focusing on the spiritual and natural, drawing from traditions of meditation, respect for nature and the desire to achieve physical and mental well being, the key to maintaining health and beauty.
Phuket has become one of the leading and most popular spa destinations anywhere in the world, and definitively across Asia and within Thailand. It boasts calm, hidden havens in which to enjoy being pampered in style at dozens of affordable spas and resorts, catering to increasing numbers of holidaymakers that are looking for something a little bit different. Spas, massage and health resorts in Phuket have developed into an important and lucrative local industry, and it seems that just about every hotel these days likes to call itself a spa resort. Of course, Phuket has some quite exceptional and exclusive spas, but caters to all price ranges with small street-side establishments that charge less than thousand baht, as well as more expensive remote hideaways that have treatments which cost thousands of baht each time.
There are so many spas in Phuket that you won’t have any trouble finding one, either as part of a hotel or resort complex, or a separate spa in one of the more popular tourist spots. Many of them have excellent reputations and world class facilities (with exclusivity to match), but expect to pay correspondingly high price.

Chaba Spa is set along a small road that leads to Angsana Laguna Resort. Due to its relatively obscure location, the number of visitors it receives seems less overwhelming than that of its more commercialised counterparts. This increases your chances of getting served quickly even if you hadn’t booked an appointment. Its menu features everything from the Swedish full-body massage to the Indian head massage. If you’d like something more locally authentic, opt for the 90-minute traditional Thai massage that costs only 1,500 baht; the experience comes with the lovely view of a pristine lagoon that can be enjoyed from the treatment rooms.
Sala Spa Massage
Sala Spa is right in the heart of Patong Beach just off Bangla Road and is one of the more reasonably priced spas with a professional attitude and clean premises, and a very good local reputation. There is no “extra services” to be had here (the sign outside says “no sex” – and they mean it) and the facials, massage and reflexology start at just a few hundred baht per session. You can even buy pots of their body scrub creams to take home.
Banyan Tree Phuket
Internationally acclaimed Banyan Tree Spa Phuket offers an exotic blend of massages and body treatments inspired by traditional Asian health and beauty remedies. As the pioneer of the tropical garden setting concept, the spa features pavilions which are re-creations of royal Thai salas in all their splendour.
