Mum and I went to Tamarind Springs today and WOW!!! This place is absolutely amazing.. we couldn't fault anything. The people are so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We were given sarongs to wear in the springs so we didn't need to bring our swimwear. We were then given new sarongs for our massages. The homemade body scrubs are to die... More

Tamarind Springs was able to squeeze us in to their very full schedule today, and what good luck that was. I've been to many fancy spas in Asia but the location of this place really makes it. Set in a lush jungle valley, the waterfalls and giant boulders really conjure a "jungle adventure" atmosphere...although you will be pampered rather than... More

You don't need to bring anything here, although I wore a swimsuit. They give you a Thai cloth to wrap around you and disposable underwear. Also given is a light shirt and pants for your massage after the pool and steam. There are three pools and two steam rooms. One steam room actually in a rock and it's so pretty... More

Spa perfected! Tranquil, serene, unrushed. The ultimate experience, not to be missed when in Samui. We chose the 'Twice As Nice' massage and it was exactly what was needed. Feeling rejuvenated and pampered. When I got up from the 2.5 hour indulgence my hair had been braided with flowers and I felt like a princess! The steam rooms and plunge... More

This has got to be one of the best spa experiences ever. We opted for the 2.5 hour massage, and it was done in an open-air shelter right in the midst of nature. It was such a relaxing and peaceful ambiance we didn't want it to end. The therapist was extremely skilled too, helping to loosen up plenty of knots... More

Just a few minutes from Lamai beach and you are in the most beautiful location ever! Surrounded by tropical plants and lots of butterflies everywhere..the giant boulders hiding the steam rooms and secret pools & waterfalls are truly amazing. Lots of stone steps to climb to the various pools, steam rooms, massage areas etc as they are all on different... More

From the moment of booking this place Jan and the team have made us feel very special. On arrival we were explained everything really well and the place was amazing and we got to mostly be on our own in each rock pool and steam area. The snacks were lovely and just enough. Our 2.5hr hot and cold stones was... More

This is a bit pricey by Thailand standards, but compared to spa prices in Australia it is still excellent value. My friends and I chose the Forest Dreaming package and all found it to be extremely relaxing and in a beautiful setting. Would highly recommend!

We had a fantastic afternoon enjoying the sauna, plunge pools and massage. The massage was just fantastic, we had a twice as nice prakop massage as a couple and it was a truly wonderful experience. The massage ladies were exceptional, attentive friendly and expert. Unfortunately we felt reception was not as welcoming as we expected and the driver they sent... More
