Destination spa opens on Thai island
Six Senses Destination Spa Phuket situated on the traditional Thai fishing island of Naka Yai, opens its doors to guests next month.
It offers the latest concepts in holistic treatments combined with integrated health programmes, with a heavy focus on preventative wellbeing. Personalised programmes aimed at transforming guests’ lifestyles are offered along with fitness activities, spa cuisine, wellness education, self discovery classes and relaxation techniques.
The spa features four interrelated spa concepts along with fitness programmes. Various spa packages are on offer, including the “life passage” wellness programmes which offer time away from everyday life and give guests - individuals, couples, families, groups and organisations - an opportunity for reassessment, re-evaluation and regeneration.
There are 61 substantial and luxurious pool villas and pool villa suites, ranging from a hill pool villa of 450 sq m to the Retreat on the Hill at 2,400 sq m.
All have similar amenities including a private pool, outdoor Sala for meditation and massage, citrus fruit and herbs grown in private villa garden, a herb garden for fresh organic baths, all natural personal care amenities, personalised butler service, king and twin beds, duvet bed covers, mosquito netting over the beds, an open style bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers.
Fresh organically grown produce from the resort’s own vegetable gardens is used in the two restaurants of Ton-Sai, offering alfresco dining with mostly fish cuisine, and The Point, featuring raw spa cuisine served with a view over Phang Nga Bay.
Guests arriving at Phuket International Airport are met and transferred within 10 minutes to Phuket Yacht Haven Marina in a chauffeured BMW Series 7. A 15 minute powerboat trip takes guests from the marina to the destination spa.
Costs per person based on a single occupancy ranges from $1,500 (double $1,100) for a hill pool villa to $9,000 (double $4,900) for a Retreat on the Hill.
Naka Yai Island is located on the top east side of Phuket, just 25 minutes away from Phuket International Airport. The name Naka Yai means big serpent since its shape is in the form of the naka, a mythical sea serpent apparent within Buddhist and Hindu beliefs.
Six Senses Destination Spa Phuket is the only resort located on the island, and forms a major part of it coupled with the pristine beaches of fine white sand lined with shady coconut groves and picturesque views across Phang Nga Bay.
