Say goodbye to last year’s drama and challenges and focus on your wellness this year. While it’s hard to shift your entire regimen, a quick getaway in the right environment can help clear your head and re-focus that energy. Whisk yourself away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and head to these stunning luxurious resorts for a well-deserved retreat.

An holistic paradise perfect for honeymooning couples or grown-ups craving a quiet escape (sorry kids under 14, you’ll have to sit this one out), this sylvan wonderland takes inspiration from Phuket’s nature and traditions and runs wild with it.
