This place is amazing. I almost wanna cry because it was so beautiful and peaceful. This is what my soul needs. I only had steam caves and natural pools, but still I was so happy after spending couple of hours there.Lunch was perfect and that scrub you use there was so good! Staff is amazing too. Okay, I booked a new time. Going again after three days, YES!

My wife and I went for the 'Forest Dreaming' package, having seen this package available online. This was 5,500 baht per person for this 4 hour, which included a 2.5 hour massage with the rest of the time for time in the steam rooms and plunge pools. In addition, a filling lunch of healthy dumplings and drinks was included.

Facilities
The steam rooms and plunge pools are formed around actual rocks - it really is an impressive sight to see. When sat in the plunge pools, you really are sat amongst nature. The massages take place in wooden huts that are high up on stilts so that when you look out, all you can see are the tree tops and the only sounds are the birds.

Massage
This was amazing. I thought I'd be bored out of my mind for 2.5 hours, but the time really does fly and I'm pretty sure I dozed off on a number of occasions. You can say how much pressure you can cope with and the masseuse did smooth out a number of knots in my back.

Rest of the day
We didn't feel too rushed for the rest of the day, even though we had another 1.5 hours as part of our package. Although it is at the expensive end of things to do in Koh Samui, I don't regret going here at all. Amazing experience.

Tips
By spending more than 10,000 baht, we were also entitled to a chauffeur to AND from your hotel, which saves a lot of hassle.
Also, the pathway to the plunge pools can be VERY slippery so take appropriate footwear.

Dear visitor,

of course we always feel appreciated when our customers leave glowing reviews here on Tripadvisor. However, the true mark of a good review is when other readers find it useful to make sound holiday decisions and allows them to plan their own activities in a way that will prove rewarding.

So we thank you for really taking the time to cover all the different aspects of the Tamarind Springs experience for the Tripadvisor readership, such as the massage package you chose & the quality of our therapists, the pick-up & hotel return transport we provide, our unique facilities and tropical surroundings, the food, and the slow & tranquil pace of the experience.

Please visit us again sometime, we would be delighted to have you back.
