I absolutely loved this experience and considered not writing a review as I’d like to keep this place quite for when I am next on the island... Mr PH and I attended for an 11:30 massage and steaming. I would recommend booking a later massage though as I personally felt rushed through the steaming/pool/scrub and lunch process. On arrival you... More

First and foremost, know that this place is expensive. Transfers to and from your hotel are provided if you are spending a minimum of 10,000 baht, there were two of us opting for the four hour "Forest Dreaming" package, so we qualified. I would suggest coming a little later than the 10am opening time if you're using the steam and... More

This place is amazing before your treatment you get a chance to enjoy the steam rooms and pools and the natural scrubs you find at the top level by the second pool. The coffee one is very effective but the citrus one was my favourite. And I call it pools but look at the pics they are very natural looking.... More

Wow! This place is breathtaking and timeless, they have carved out caves from huge boulders and made them into saunas, the plunge pools are works of art and the massage you enjoy at the end of it is truly something else - pure bliss... Do yourself a favour and pay a little extra for memories that will last a lifetime!

From reception right through to finalising the bill on conclusion, the staff at the spa were courteous, friendly and helpful. The setting is magical- tranquil, serene, birds chirping, water sounds, we felt instantly relaxed upon arriving.... More

The place ia beautiful and the staff seems professional. I had the traditional thai massage with the leight of almost 2h or so. Despite the pain, I want to believe it was correctly performed. The Spot was beautiful, in a place in the midlle of the forest. I specially enjoyed the time spent at the hot springs before the massage... More

We enjoyed our 4 hour visit in a lush green setting watching the birds flit from having a bath in the stream back to the trees. The steam rooms are hot and the 3 plunge "pool" very refreshing. The sitting area with tea and cold drinks is very lovely and we enjoyed just chilling out before our massage. The scrub... More

Tamarind springs is undoubtedly the most beautiful and peaceful spa I have ever visited. The first half of the treatment involved casually moving from steam rooms to rock pools. I could have done this part all day. The steam rooms are in fact caves formed by huge boulders and the rock pool also looks lovely and natural. A selection of... More
