I’m in Koh Samui, Thailand! The past two days have brought about a lot of adventure and I have experienced a number of new things. One of which is a massage. I know, shock horror, I have never had a massage before! Seeing as this was the case, I had to experience a traditional Thai Massage. I went to the spa located at Samui Paradise Chaweng Beach Resort and Spa, called Chalalai Spa. The spa itself is located on the second floor of a Thai style building, and the massage room, looks out and onto Chaweng Beach.
As you lay on the bed, getting massaged (or pummelled), you are instantly relaxed with the sound of the waves crashing and the magical music playing. It really is heavenly. The staff at Chalalai Spa were extremely friendly and also made sure the pressure was just right for you. The pricing of the massages is much higher than the massages you can receive in town, however, you are paying for the overall experience. After all it is a spa, you have a cool, air-conditioned room just for you and one other person, and it looks over Chaweng Beach. Overall it was absolutely incredible! Definitely a highlight of my trip this far!
So if you are ever in Koh Samui, I highly recommend visiting Chalalai Spa as a little treat, or if it just so happens to be raining, as it was with us!
Keep a look out for more of my adventure in Thailand!
