Baan Thai Spa at Koh Samui newest spa on Condé Nast Hot List for 2012

Posted on September 21, 2012


Condé Naste has voted the spa at the Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam in Koh Samui as one of the top five new Asian spas to open around the world in the last 12 months.  The Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam has officialled opened its new spa, Baan Thai Spa, to complement the iconic property  at its stunning cliff-top location.

At 120-metres high nestled on the side of a rolling green cliff, Baan Thai Spa offers unparalleled views of the tropical landscape and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand, providing  ideal therapeutic treatments and relaxation.

The intimate experience of the “Baan”, which means “home” in Thai, is reinforced at the Tea Salon located at the heart of Baan Thai Spa, where ancient tea ceremony and time-honoured rituals are performed with great care and respect, paying homage to the spa’s Thai heritage.

Customers are given sachets of their ‘prescribed’ tea, according to the customer’s current health, mood and level of stress, to take away with them for continued use to counter the effects of stress and pollution from today’s urban lifestyle and environment  and encourage holistic balance.

The warm ambience of the spa gives a distinct feeling of a Thai home. Decorated in calming hues of blue, complemented by the spa’s natural surroundings, the abundance of light and the use of teakwood throughout, the spa provides a peaceful and soothing environment for the guests.

The spa’s development has been overseen by the health and wellness consultant, Ms. Roxanne De Guzman, who has over 18 years’ experience as a yoga, fitness and spa management expert.  She has developed all aspects of the 600sq meter spa, from design, staff recruitment and training to the development and customization of the treatments and therapies available.
