Like yin to the island’s raging nightlife yang, Koh Samui’s spa and wellness offerings are impressive and diverse. Absolute Sanctuary, a retreat in the hills above Choeng Mon Beach, boasts some of the island’s best yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes along with the Love Kitchen, a vegetarian café.
Offering house calls by appointment, healer Jennifer Thompson educates clients on raw food and performs iridology, an ancient science of reading the iris of the eyes to identify physical and emotional concerns. The American transplant is developing a loyal following that extends far beyond these restorative shores.
Down south on Laem Set Beach, Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary deserves its reputation as the island’s most comprehensive spa. The treatment menu lists more than 70 healing therapies, including colonic hydrotherapy, a far infrared sauna that burns up to 600 calories in a 30-minute sweat session, outdoor pedicures overlooking azure waters, and lotus-seed body wraps.
For pure pampering, step inside the Spa at the Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui. Its five double treatment pavilions nestled among the palm fronds are Samui’s most romantic spa spots, with intimate steam showers built for two and an outdoor relaxation area with day beds for Thai massage plus a roomy terrazzo bathtub.
