The Pimalai Spa Revives The Ancient Wisdom Of Thai Wellness With Four New Massage Therapies

The Pimalai Spa, the multi-award-winning wellness sanctuary on the idyllic Thai island of Koh Lanta, is a heavenly haven of health and wellbeing.

Hidden within a verdant valley, close to the Andaman Sea, guests can unwind and experience world-class spa therapies while being soothed by the soft sounds of the jungle and kissed by the warm sea breeze.

With its collection of intimate treatment salas, all fashioned from stone, native wood and bamboo, adorned with classic carvings and exquisite artworks, and surrounded by rippling pools, lush jungle, century-old trees and fragrant flowers, visitors feel as if they have discovered a lost village.

Nestled in this forest hideaway at Pimalai Resort & Spa, a team of highly trained spa professionals offers time-honoured Thai therapies, many of which date back hundreds of years. Thailand is one of the world’s most important wellness cultures and Thai massage has even been added to the UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Reviving these rich traditions, The Pimalai Spa has now unveiled four massages that embrace ancient healing wisdom to relax the body and rejuvenate the soul.

The Pregnancy Massage (60 minutes, THB 2,300) is a deep-rooted full-body treatment that has been used in Thailand for centuries to cater to the unique needs of mothers-to-be. This therapeutic massage features specific techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation and are proven to be safe and highly beneficial for mother and baby, specifically helping to reduce stress and relieve muscle tension.

Alternatively, the Hot Bamboo Fusion Massage (90 minutes, THB 2,800) is another age-old technique that can be traced back through the centuries. It involves a deep tissue massage, but with a firmer touch and gently-heated bamboo to stimulate blood circulation and release tension. It has been proven to reduce pain throughout the body, from migraines to deep-seated tension.

More well-known in contemporary spa culture, the Hot Stone Massage (90 minutes, THB 3,200) is a soothing therapy that involves placing a series of warm basalt stones along the spine, shoulders and neck to promote a sensation of deep relaxation. Usually performed as part of a deep tissue massage, this treatment can help to alleviate pain and ease stress.

Finally, the Oriental Scalp Massage (30 minutes, THB 1,450) is a centuries-old therapy that can improve the condition of the scalp and hair, while also reducing tension from the entire upper part of the body, including head, neck and shoulders. The organic oil helps to nourish the skin and stimulate the follicles, making the hair look and feel fantastic.

Tucked away within a secluded corner of Pimalai, the 100-acre five-star paradise popular with A-listers and jet-setters, The Pimalai Spa has won a series of highly prestigious international accolades and honours, including World Luxury Spa Awards and Condé Nast Johansens’ Luxury Spa Collection. Wellness forms an integral part of Pimalai’s eco-conscious leisure concept, along with non-motorised water sports, yoga sessions, Muay Thai boxing, cooking classes, tennis, badminton, cycling and more.

“Thai wellness is an exquisite artform that has been practiced throughout the Kingdom for centuries. These skills and techniques are passed down through the generations, often without written records, so it is important that we respect and preserve this rich, UNESCO-listed heritage. I am delighted to invite our experience-seeking guests to discover these ancient therapies at The Pimalai Spa, our haven of health and wellbeing. This is just one of the ways we are safeguarding and showcasing the timeless traditions of Thai culture,” said Charintip Tiyaphorn, Owner Representative of Pimalai Resort & Spa.
