Tamarind Springs Spa

It’s difficult to say enough about Tamarind Springs. What is easy to say is that it’s totally unique. It’s tropical, it’s Asian, and it’s exotic. And the idyllic setting gets under your skin and into your heart.

Everything slows down magically when you turn off the main road and enter the palm-lined driveway. Immediately, you begin to sense the tranquility of this magic place. But it’s only when you walk into the heart of the spa that you realise how spacious the grounds are. And how absolutely magnificent!

 

A short stroll along the stepping-stone pathway brings you into a beautiful thatched reception where soft music and friendly receptionists graciously guide you through the enticing menu.

“…But I’ll leave the summing up of this extraordinary centre to Tamarind Springs’ visitors, by quoting a typical entry in the heavily subscribed visitors’ book – “This place is like heaven on earth.”

You can choose a simple traditional Thai Yoga massage or be tempted by the inspiring names of other treatments. Tamarind Springs’ packages are based on professional massage training and quality control. Whatever you choose, you will find the therapists expert and intuitive about accommodating your specific needs.

All the packages include at least 1.5 hours of ‘steam and dream’ before your massage treatments: herbal steam cave and cold-water rock pools, snacks and refreshments in the ‘Tea Sala’. Tamarind Springs has a strict ‘switch-off policy’. All guests are required to leave their mobile phones and cameras (together with their worries and to-do lists!) behind.

Tamarind Springs Forest Spa must be one of the most imaginatively designed relaxation spas anywhere in the world. A ‘walking meditation experience’, you pass under a huge boulder into a jungly realm of the steam cave and rock pool. Huge trees and trailing vines surround you. A rustic wooden walkway leads to the ‘Relaxation Area’ in a forest clearing to another pool, and a thatched shelter with refreshments. Time seems to stand still altogether, while you slow down to reconnect with the nurturing rhythm of nature.

A unique feature of the Forest Spa is that you only book your time, choosing the massage combination that suits you on the day. Treatments are in lovely, open-sided suites with views across the picturesque valley. But best to try Tamarind Springs for yourself- and don’t try to rush it – the shortest package for the Forest Spa lasts 4 hours.

Tamarind Springs has always employed professional trainers to develop its massage protocols. Last year it has raised the bar again with the opening of the Tamarind Springs Massage Academy, employing internationally recognised instructors to teach both beginners entering the industry or professionals interested in improving their skills.

But I’ll leave the summing up of this extraordinary centre to Tamarind Springs’ visitors, by quoting a typical entry in the heavily subscribed visitors’ book – “This place is like heaven on earth.”

In 2008 Tamarind Springs was awarded ‘The Award of Outstanding Performance for Health Tourism’ by the Tourist Authority of Thailand and Asia Spa’s ‘Day Spa of The Year Award’ for excellence in Hong Kong.
