Why you need a Thai Massage in Phuket


Thailand might be known as a budget backpacker destination, but it’s so much more than that. You can definitely wine and dine on the cheap here, and frequent the hot spots for a fraction of what you would spend almost anywhere else, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t also totally luxury. After all, what could be more heavenly than luxuriating in the shade of breezy palm trees, about to get the massage of your life in one of the best holiday destinations in the world?


Setting the Scene

Phuket is Thailand’s largest island, a tropical wonderland where travellers are treated to idyllic beaches, fantastically-shaped limestone karsts and lush rainforests—the perfect backdrop for your luxury holiday. There are so many things to do in Phuket—think surfing, shopping, hiking, or partying—that after a day of adventure and exploration, an authentic Thai massage is the only option. Or simply use it as an excuse to escape from the grind of the everyday. There’s a real emphasis on mind-body connection in Thai massage, and the beauty of Phuket lays the groundwork for that connection in a way no western massage parlour ever could.


The Magic Touch

You’ll be spoilt for choice in Phuket, where you can get a massage at your resort, in a salon or specialty store, or even at the beach. You might decide on a foot massage, where practitioners use the ancient art of reflexology to massage every part of your body just by stimulating the sweet spots on your feet. But for ultimate luxury opt for a traditional Thai massage by an experienced masseuse to lower stress and elevate your mood. The experts say massage does everything from stimulating your nervous system to unlocking vital Qi energy—we just say it feels really, REALLY good. It’s your choice whether you relax right there on the beach, with masseuses setting up in the sand from November to April, or indulge at one of the premier spas where you can expect a high level of service and a range of options at your very relaxed fingertips.
