Experience … Pure Pampering, a Proud Heritage and Inspiringly Different Design
And now for something completely different … imagine a spa inspired by the ancient capital of Ayutthaya, with a whimsical and very colourful twist on the tropical island spa experience. The brand new Santiburi by Bhawa Spa is a stylish oasis of serenity in the middle of our resort gardens. Lose yourself in this vibrant world where Buddha hands wave from orange tables, magical birds flit through carvings and mosaics, water bubbles from rainbow coloured fountains and bursts of blossoms in bright pinks and yellows peek through intricately carved wooden screens.
A red stone walkway – modelled after those in Ayutthaya, leads guests into a world where the best of contemporary treatments and therapies meet the wisdom of Southern Thai spa and massage traditions. Our reputation for excellence and heritage is unrivalled in Thailand — the original Santiburi Spa was one of the first in Thailand to be certified by the Ministry of Public Health for quality of service, staff skills, management and organisation, product, equipment, care and ambience. To date, only 28 spas in Thailand have met these rigorous criteria which assure visitors of a world class level of excellence
Our facilities include a Turkish massage table and shower therapy room, indoor baths, outdoor deep soaking tubs, traditional Thai massage rooms and a special photographic studio where guests can have a souvenir photo taken in traditional Thai dress. All Bhawa treatments are designed to restore a profound sense of balance, drawing from natural therapies, modern and ancient massage techniques. Local ingredients, such as coconut, rice, betel leaves and Thai silk are used, and we offer everything from kids’ spa packages to anti-ageing peels.
Santiburi by Bhawa Spa is about wellness with heart and soul, delivered by people with spirit and real stories to tell. Meet the Reiki master who fell in love with Samui 20 years ago and made Santiburi the home of her healing hands.
