Thailand has been a bit late catching on to the appeal of the spa holiday, but that’s all set to change with a swathe of five-star hotels refurbishing their current offerings to ensure that the country becomes the spa destination for 2010. Head to the Andaman coast and the luxurious Cape Panwa Hotel, whose new state-of-the-art spa has a huge menu of treatments that are all about relaxation and recuperation, using Thai herbs and spices. For a real treat, ask for a traditional Thai massage in one of their beach pavilions.
While you relax, listening to the sound of the waves, a Thai masseuse pummels, stretches and bends those kinks out of your spine, leaving you feeling two inches taller and instantly chilled. Once you’ve worked your way through the treatment menu, take a trip on the hotel’s private yacht, the Panwa Princess, and sail around the coastline, where you’ll discover some of the most gorgeous isolated beaches and hidden inlets. – from DailyMail
