Although Thailand has always been considered a great destination for healing massages, health treatment and even cheap dental work, it is only over the last two decades that it has become internationally prominent for the variety of establishments where diverse spa offerings leave visitors feeling rejuvenated and with a sense of being reborn.
Koh Chang is no exception to the rule and there are abundant locations to take in traditional massages and spa treatments that include Thai herbal steam baths, soak treatments, facial treatments, saunas, colonic irrigations, ampugu belly massages and anti-cellulite massages with combined yoga and meditation that allows body and mind restoration to continue.
Venues for treatments and massages range from beachside sun-loungers to swish resorts. Experienced masseuses wander the beaches of the island’s main resorts and offer body, foot and oil massages from as little as 100 baht an hour, although this depends on whether it is high season and the visitor’s haggling skills.
Among premium accommodation spas and resorts are VJ’s at the west coast’s Klong Prow Beach and the Spa Koh Chang Resort on the eastern Salak Kok Bay. Below are a few select locations where Koh Chang visitors can take beneficial health treatments, spas and massages.
