Anantara Bophut Spa

This year I had a very special Valentines Day treat -  a visit to a spa in one of my favourite hotels - Anantara in Bophut.

I don't usually have time for a spa, as running my own business means that I never have time for anything but work :-)  But of course there are some days when I feel like slowing down and having a good rest, so that visit to the spa was a gift from Heaven...

The Anantara Spa itself is an absolutely stunning place.  In order to get there, you have to go through tropical alleyways, over small bridges across water ponds, pass many colourful tropical flowers and plants on the way, listen to the wind chimes above your head, and when you have done that journey - you find yourself in a beautiful reception where you are immediately greeted by smiling staff and offered a face towel and a cold drink made of plants and herbs. Pure Bliss!

I was about to have an Anantara Signature massage, so they gave me different kind of oil to choose from and a form to fill.

I dragged my hubby along and asked him to take some pictures, as I wanted to write a post about it, feeling that it would be a bit selfish not to share my experience in Samui's best places with you guys. 
So, he did :-) 

After I filled out the form, my lovely therapist took me to a changing room which was very lovely as well, with many beautiful touches, pieces of art, oriental ornaments and beautiful, looking like rose petals, small stones in the sink.

After I changed, she took me to a treatment room, which was like....WOW! 

Your personal bath with real rose petals...Rain shower, rays of sun shining trough bamboo...Everything was just so beautiful..

First she washed my feet before the treatment...

Then I had a dip in this bath...

and then the treatment started...It was a full body massage plus neck/head/face massage. 

After the treatment I felt so relaxed, I could hardly move and to be honest didn't really want to leave, so the therapist brought me some ginger tea and I went to chill on the couch in a small garden by the pool.

Unfortunately all good things tend to come to an end, so I had to go, but I stopped on the way to relax in the small Sala with a book for another half hour, just couldn't bring myself to leave this stunning and welcoming place :-) 

So, I had an amazing experience there, and would recommend this place in a heartbeat, it's beautiful, it's highly professional, it's very customer-friendly and I couldn't wish for more. Not cheap though, but if you do it once in a while - it is totally worth it! 


  1. Elina, you have just brought back wonderful memories of our trip to Anantara in Dec 2010!..I can't remember the name of the local plant from which that cold drink is made of! Even the ginger tea has a very smooth distinctive taste to it...luuvv it...Saan
