Thai escape

Experience luxury and wellness while reconnecting mind and soul at Four Seasons Resorts in Thailand.

03 June 2024


In this hyper-connected world, Four Seasons Resorts Thailand offers a serene escape, inviting guests – whether traveling solo, as a couple, or with family – to disconnect from digital distractions and reconnect with nature.

Renowned for its sabai sabai lifestyle, warm hospitality, and tropical climate, Thailand offers an ideal setting for a holistic digital detox.

“When was the last time you really got in touch with yourself?” quizzes Sean Mosher, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai and Tented Camp Golden Triangle. “Or taken the time to be in the present, without fleeting thoughts about the latest news or a pending business email response?”

Jasjit Assi, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, chimes in, “The digital exhaustion is real and comes with never being able to switch off.”

Understanding the importance of providing opportunities for meaningful connections with nature and oneself, the resorts have recalibrated their wellness programs to offer immersive experiences and innovative therapies, fostering meaningful connections with nature and oneself.


Disconnect to reconnect

Promising an off-the-grid adventure in the luxurious natural surroundings of Northern Thailand, bordering Myanmar and Laos, Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle is the perfect escape from the humdrum of day-to-day life, catering to solo travellers, couples, and families alike.

Guests can immerse themselves in the allure of digital detox experiences, offering memorable adventures for every type of traveller. The Camp strikes a perfect balance of nature and culture, adventure and relaxation, and luxury.

“With just 15 tents and one two-bedroom Explorer’s Lodge, no in-room television but high-speed WiFi—the Camp allows you to disconnect digitally, mentally, and emotionally,” smiles Camp Manager Paweena Waraha.

“Expect to hear birdsong from the spa, cicadas humming at night, frogs calling, and even an elephant or two chatting in the distance! If you wake up early enough one morning, you can soak in the thick fog banks as they wash away to reveal the lush bamboo jungle just a few feet away.”

During the day, parents and children (aged 10 years and above) can enjoy the tranquility of a morning hike to Camp Peak, followed by a solemn Monk Blessing, honouring timeless Thai traditions.

Later, they can go fishing with a local along the Mekong River, where ancient techniques meld with the river’s rhythm on a leisurely boating trip along the Ruak River. A countryside bike tour through paddy fields, plantations, and teak forests, observing local farmers, with a restful break at Bau Luang Lake, is perfect for rejuvenating both body and spirit.

The jungle spa experience is where relaxation meets natural healing. Guests can feel their tension melt away with the Mahout Recovery treatment, featuring soothing poultices filled with camphor, lime, and lemongrass to ease sore muscles.

The Ruak Bamboo treatment employs herbal oils and bamboo sticks to offer relief from deep muscle tension. “For couples seeking connection, Lhong Rak Chiang Rai offers a serene escape, with massages infused with jasmine and sandalwood on a water mattress, fostering gentleness and unity,” Paweena recommends.

“For a traditional touch, opt for a traditional Thai massage, enhancing circulation and flexibility through precise techniques. Even kids can join in with the Jungle Boy treatment, using local ingredients such as camphor and lemongrass for holistic wellness.”

“Join our cooking class or alternatively, our team can prepare a private barbecue of perfectly grilled meats, giving couples and families a chance to bond and recharge,” she adds. “The three-night adventure package is ideal for enjoying this experience.”

Embrace slow living

Discover wellness and mindfulness at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, nestled in the serene Mae Rim Valley – renowned for its spiritual ambience. Here, terraced rice fields and lush tropical gardens promote natural well-being, set against the backdrop of Thailand’s mighty mountains.

Guests are encouraged to embrace a balanced life, integrating body, mind, and soul. “The Art of Mindful Living is central to our wellness orientation – whether as a couple or solo traveller. This tranquil retreat offers guests the opportunity to curate their own personalised wellness experiences amid the serene beauty of Northern Thailand,” says Mosher.

From a wellness cooking class to balanced cuisine, spa treatments to yoga sessions, and holistic healing experiences, there’s plenty to help guests find balance, recharge, and refresh.

“Guests’ wellbeing is our priority. We invite you to immerse yourself in our tailored programs that promise restorative healing.

“The Guided Relaxation and Meditation help find balance, inner stillness, boost positivity and confidence—a great way to slow the mind down and find a sense of purpose,” shares Saowapa Thumapun, Director of Spa.

“The newly launched half-day Soulful Awakening Program offers a transformative pause for your body and mind. Crafted to fine-tune your circadian rhythm, this experience guarantees a deep and revitalizing sleep and a connection to self,” she adds.

Restorative and intuitive healing are the cornerstones of the experience here, with specific experiences for both children and adults. Start Them Young’s spa experiences offer a mindful journey of well-being tailored specifically for young children.

Beyond the spa, the well-being program extends to the cultural hub Chaan Baan, which offers immersive activities that reflect the local way of life, fostering connections with the destination and promoting family bonding.

Families looking to find their zen can stay in the luxurious 2-4 bedroom Private Retreats, staying three or more nights to enjoy 25 percent off with daily breakfast and more. “Our Private Retreats come with personal attendants and several other perks, making family travel memorable!” shares Anthony Tschudin, Resort Manager.


Luxury seaside wellness

With its palm-fringed beaches, dense coconut groves, and imposing rainforests, Koh Samui is a premier wellness destination and home to a diverse community of wellness practitioners.

“Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui is the ideal venue for everyone to soak in the beauty of Thailand’s island life, whether in pool villas or residences—and for couples, our Island Romance offer is the ultimate resort experience to reconnect over breakfast for two, or for solo travellers, Bed and Breakfast,” suggests Hannes Schneider, Resort Manager.

“Our wellbeing sessions will help you learn to breathe properly, strengthen your body, re-align with your nervous system, and find inner calm.”

At The Secret Garden Spa, expert yogic practitioners offer transformative experiences with personalised treatments based on the four elements of earth, water, wind, and fire.

By engaging in active wellness programs, including Muay Thai training led by the Resort’s in-house Muay Thai pro, watersport activities, hiking, and more, guests can truly immerse themselves in a seaside sojourn to inner calm and physical wellbeing.

“Experiences such as the Lava Shell Massage by the beach spa sala truly enhance the overall sense of tranquillity and connection with Thailand’s vibrant culture,” suggests Kotchaphan Mekloy, Director of Spa.

For the perfect family getaway, the Resort’s plush Two-Four Bedroom Private Retreats offer the most luxurious stay, with a personal attendant, private chefs on call, canapés in-residence, and stunning accommodation with infinite views of the Gulf of Thailand from multiple pools.

“For your deep relaxation, stay four nights or more with our Residence Escape offer to enjoy 25 percent savings with daily breakfast,” adds Hannes.

Whether it’s a tranquil digital detox amid the jungles of Northern Thailand, an immersive wellness experience in the countryside of Chiang Mai, or an active retreat along the shores of Koh Samui, Four Seasons Resorts Thailand offers the perfect escape for those seeking to rejuvenate mind, body, and soul.
