Barai appoints specialist healer


THE Barai, one of the premier residential spas in Thailand, is cementing its status as a wellness sanctuary by bringing mind healer and holistic practitioner Dr Buathon Thienarom into the fold.

A 16-year veteran of the spa industry, Dr Thienarom will lead a variety of weekly workshops at The Barai, which offers world-class accommodation, therapies and lifestyle programmes rooted in the idea of tranquility.

The facility is set on 4.5 acres of beachfront property within the tropical confines of the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin, two and a half hours south of Bangkok by car.

Seeds of Happiness is for those wishing to discover inner peace for total relaxation. Body and Mind Alchemy emphasises the significance of positive thinking and Sound Healing offers techniques for better concentration.

“The classes are for people who want to detoxify the body and mind and learn how to properly deal with daily stresses and anxieties,” said YeeMan Timm, The Barai’s spa director. “In this day and age, that sort of knowledge is essential to living a healthy, balanced and deeply rewarding life. We’re fortunate to have Dr Thienarom on site providing this holistic programme.”

In an effort to introduce the curious to Dr Thienarom’s programmes, The Barai is offering a wellness retreat package inclusive of a 90-minute Body and Mind Alchemy session, a nutritious set menu at the resort’s historic McFarland House, a 60-minute Sound Healing workshop and a 90-minute blend massage, The Barai’s signature treatment.

Since opening in 2006, The Barai has won a range of awards and has been included on Conde Nast Traveller’s Hot List.
