Travelling around Thailand is definitely exciting but also exhausting. After exploring the night markets on your feet, swimming in the ocean all day, sampling delicious food, and hiking in a national park to visit a beautiful waterfall, an amazing session of rest and relaxation is just what you need. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of incredible spas in Thailand offering some of the most unique and divine spa treatments. So, if you’re looking for the ultimate spa experience, here are the best spas in Thailand with unique spa treatments that’ll leave you feeling refreshed and finessed!

1. Kashikiri Soda Onsen and Spa

Kashikiri Soda Onsen and Spa in Bangkok is the first private onsen spa in Thailand. It’s perfect for those who want to try the traditional Japanese hot spring experience but are too shy for the naked shared baths at a regular onsen. The equipment and onsen salt are all imported from Japan so that you can get an authentic experience. There are three types of water you can choose for your onsen bath. Kashikiri imports its water from different prefectures in Japan, each offering its own benefits. One water type may rejuvenate joints, one has antiseptic properties, and one can help retain the skin’s youthfulness.

Once you’ve had your time in the relaxing onsen bath, you can enjoy a variety of calming treatments like full body scrubs and traditional Thai massages. Your spa experience in Kashikiri will end with a tray of complimentary refreshments. No doubt – you’ll leave the spa feeling rejuvenated and refreshed!
