Anantara Spa at Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa, Koh Samui, Thailand
Why go: Tucked away in a secluded corner of this luxurious beach resort, Anantara's spa is designed by US architect Bill Bensley in the style of a Thai palace, and has the feel of an authentic sanctuary far removed from Koh Samui's crowds.
The treatments: The Anantara Signature Massage (Rs 6,000 for 90 minutes) uses a unique blend of oils in tandem with movements designed to stimulate circulation while promoting relaxation. Another highlight is the Anantara Signature Facial (Rs 5,200 for 60 minutes), which combines nourishing plant extracts and traditional Thai ingredients like banana, pumpkin and coconut to encourage cell renewal and oxygenation. And golfers will appreciate a treatment specially conceived to relieve tired muscles.
