As we enter a new decade, increasing numbers of us regularly feel overworked, overstretched, overwhelmed and at risk of burn out. We are constantly searching for ways to find balance and to reconnect with our path and purpose, which explains in part the soaring popularity of Health & Wellness Retreats. Indeed, the need to disconnect in order to re-connect has never been stronger. Luckily, here in the Land of Smiles we are blessed with warm, tropical surroundings and abundant nature, making Thailand and more specifically Phuket, a favorite ‘Wellness Destination’ in the eyes of many travelers. In a time poor world, the call for retreats is all too evident, so below we look at the best options for relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation both on and around the island.


Located in the South East of the island at stunning Cape Panwa, Amatara offer all inclusive Short Stay Retreat Options from 3 days upwards and can even customise the wellness retreat to suit your personal requirements. Unlike other wellness resorts, Amatara offers a wide range of healthy holidays to suit everyone in your family. Guests can opt for a fully comprehensive detox retreat program, energising yoga retreat, weight management program or can choose to simply go for a relaxing spa revive program. At the same time, guests who come with kids can also join the wellness program either as an individual wellness retreat program or family wellness program.
