Grab your towel! It’s time for a Thailand getaway at this luxuriant new spa. YTL Hotels has recently opened Spa Village Koh Samui, situated within The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui – and it’s a feast for the senses.

Inspired by the island’s natural beauty and its rich history of coconut plantations, visitors to Spa Village Koh Samui is filled with natural splendour.

The Spa Village’s signature treatment, the Coconut Heritage Treatment, infuses locally grown coconuts to enhance the spa experience, beginning with a full body scrub using coconut meat and walnuts, followed by a coconut flow massage with Virgin Coconut oils. The signature treatment concludes with a nourishing Coconut Hair Masque.

If you’re not nutty for coconut, there’s a range of other treatments to enjoy. These include an intriguing Thai Aquatic Freedom, involving the treasured art of Thai massage married poetically with the dance-like grace of aqua therapy. Experience the feeling of weightlessness in the water of the aqua therapy pool, as your body is moved dynamically through the water. The series of stretches softens the muscles, relieves stiff joints, and quiets the mind. An unsurpassed level of letting go and relaxation is evoked in this transformational experience.

Using age-old Thai healing practices, Spa Village Koh Samui integrates therapeutic properties from natural local ingredients to create a holistic and rejuvenating spa program. Inspired by the annual Songkran Thai New Year festival, the spa features a pre-ritual Songkran Shower treatment, which begins on a specially designed rain shower table, followed by a refreshing rinse and a brief body cleansing using raw coconut husk pads.

Surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters and stunning greenery, you’ll like like you’ve walked in a postcard.  Spa Village Koh Samui blends the tropical charm of Koh Samui with the tranquility of a luxurious spa, offering a sanctuary in a private sun-kissed bay in the Gulf of Thailand.

Occupying its own section of the resort, the 41,000 square-foot spa features its own infinity pool with intimate cabanas that overlook eight treatment suites and three open-air massage pavilions, encircling a large rock pond.

When not reclining, the rest of the resort is still equally indulgent. The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui is comprised of 58 oceanfront acres and features 175 beautiful suites and pool villas, with a wide variety of recreational, culinary and wellness activities inspired by the rich cultural heritage of Koh Samui.
