Ensconced in mesmerizing tropical abundance, and with a rhythmic pace of life, Thailand’s profound beauty and compelling culture lend itself naturally to wellbeing and consciousness. Here, the art of wellness – in mind, body and soul – is commonplace as the ritualistic way of life unfolds through dramatic landscapes, sensory wellness experiences and cuisine concepts.
Wellness by the Sea
The quintessential seaside experience on Koh Samui is accentuated by its growing reputation as a destination for wellness, and at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, this is manifested through a broad spectrum of activities that are inspired by the island life. Guests can discover the wisdom of ancient Thai wellness at the award-winning The Secret Garden Spa, where traditional techniques of massage and a variety of home-grown herbs and medicinal plants are interwoven into an exclusive range of signature therapies. For guests looking to reset their circadian rhythm, the newly-launched in-villa Sleep Indulgence ritual is the ultimate intervention, combining aromatherapy, sound healing, and mindful breathing to induce a deep and restorative night’s sleep.Set along a dramatic hillside that rolls into the ocean, the possibilities for an active fitness regimen at the Resort are endless: from Muay Thai, tennis and volleyball on shore, to snorkelling, kayaking and paddle-boarding in the Gulf of Thailand. Keeping cuisine at the core of the wellness experience, personal modules at the Resort can be customised to cater to dietary needs, while the daily breakfast buffet and the menu at Pla Pla offer a variety of health-specific options.
Healed by Mountain Air
Far up north and deep in the bamboo jungles of the Golden Triangle, the path to wellness is an “off the grid” adventure on its own. Attuning to nature’s rhythm, guests can begin early, and join the kilometre-long hike up to Camp Peak, where they are rewarded with glorious sunrise views over the horizon. Cycling enthusiasts can enjoy the local way of life, crisscrossing through tapioca and pineapple fields while on tour and then surrender to some rest and recuperation afterwards at the exotic jungle spa. Experience the healing benefits of locally foraged mountain herbs and spices while focusing on your mindfulness through signature treatments such as the Ruak Bamboo massage, Mekong Meditation and the Myanmar Thanaka Brightening Mask, that are inspired by the three intersecting cultures that coalesce at this point. The Lhong Rak Chiang Rai Couples Connect is a special sensory spa experience that is especially recommended for couples looking for an intimate jungle escape.
Mindful Living in the Countryside
With a legacy of more than two decades, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai is a true reflection of the spiritual heartland of Thailand. Wrapped in verdant rice fields and overlooking the mystical peaks of Doi Suthep, wellness takes on a deeper meaning here, as guests are encouraged to embrace a life lived in balance – integrating body, mind, and soul. The four pillars of physical rejuvenation, mental equilibrium, spiritual renewal and true nourishment stand as one. Besides the packaged four-night experience that includes clay moulding, yoga, sound healing, a monk offering experience, a spa session, nourishing meals and more, the Resort also offers a range of customised half-day and full-day programs that focus on balancing the body’s circadian rhythm. Rhythmic Balance Programs are designed to provide a deeper understanding of the imbalances that may occur due to lifestyle choices and is the first step in the journey of wellbeing.
“In a post-pandemic world, where luxury travellers are looking for a greater purpose to their holiday plans, enhanced wellness experiences have emerged as primary catalysts,” shares Sean Mosher, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai and Tented Camp Golden Triangle. “At Four Seasons Resorts Thailand, we have re-calibrated our programs to be immersive and innovative, so that our guests can derive maximum benefit from our range of treatments and therapies,” addsJasjitAssi, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui.
