Welcome back to Thailand

30/06/2021, Healing Holidays

For decades now weary Spa-goers have travelled in their droves to Thailand. This friendly yet sophisticated, exotic yet welcoming nation is the world’s ultimate destination for Spa and Wellness Holidays. Here you will find the very best yoga and Pilates retreats as well as Spas where you can shed pounds, detox or simply enjoy a large dose of pampering.

It is almost as if better health and healing happens more easily in Thailand, thanks in part to nurturing and caring hands, deliciously healthy food, superb practitioners and stunning natural surroundings.

We have been waiting with bated breath to be able to send our clients back to Thailand, and so are thrilled that it is now open again.

At first fully vaccinated travellers must fly directly onto the magical island of Phuket, where they are required to stay, quarantine-free, for a minimum of 14 nights before they are then allowed to travel freely to anywhere else in in the country. To mark the re-opening Thai Airways has launched a brand new, non-stop weekly service from London Heathrow to Phuket.

Fully vaccinated travellers can also now arrive into Koh Samui and from 01st October 2021 fully vaccinated travellers will also be able to arrive into a number of other destinations, including Hua Hin without having to quarantine upon their arrival.
