For the 3rd year in a row Thailand has taken the gong for best spa destination in Asia as voted by prestigious AsiaSpa India Magazine, which is the most popular spa and wellness magazine in India.
I am not surprised! I have been lucky enough to wallow in a few luxury spas in Thailand and some of the ones I’ve been to have made me know what I will do when I win Lotto.
The climate in Thailand means they are designed with an indoor/outdoor flow. I’ve stood under an outdoor shower with the water cascading over slate and splashing onto the rocks and water lilies around my feet. I’ve run myself an outdoor bath sunken into lotus ponds and taken a memory snap shot so that I never forget that moment. I’ve been in the ladies loo of a hotel where the wall behind the basins is lush planting and mirrors hang from the ceiling.
My dream spa will be designed around water with each treatment room having private garden views, but because I don’t plan to move to a tropical climate where I don’t need walls, I’ll also have fireplaces for chilly winter days when all you want is pampering. Ahhhh…. C’mon Lotto!
