There are many Koh Samui spa resorts, but Tamarind Springs Forest Spa at Lamai - Koh Samui's tranquil and picturesque East coast - offers you a unique Thailand holiday and spa experience:* Seek ultimate spa relaxation at Thailand's first dedicated Day Spa on Koh Samui* Get away from it all. Unwind and experience unique Koh Samui accommodation in private villas, surrounded by tropical gardens, in close proximity to our magnificent spa facilities and just a short walk to Lamai beach* Learn massage at Thailand's first dedicated professional massage training academy on Koh Samui * Enjoy healthy and home-made food at Tamarind Springs' open-air Spa Café. Tamarind Springs Forest Spa on Koh Samui is inspired by its superb location, bordering Lamai's tropical forest interior, where lush coconut groves gently slope into a valley of huge granite boulders. Built out of love and respect for Koh Samui's unique landscape, every effort has been made to fluidly integrate all man-made structures of this serene and exclusive Samui spa into Lamai's indigenous surroundings. In 2008, Tamarind Springs Forest Spa on Koh Samui was awarded both "The Award of Outstanding Performance for Health Tourism" by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, and "Asia Spa's" highly coveted "Day Spa of the Year Award for Excellence" .

My partner and I were blown away with the service and beautiful facility. We chose the forest dreaming package and loved every second. The spa scenery is mystical and enchanting with cave plunge pools and natural saunas. The body scrubs are to die for! The staff are professional and so friendly. They even surprised my partner with a brownie for... More

The area is beautiful, they have nice humid sauna using the rock cave. Very nice area to relax take a bath and eat your complementary snack. The best by far is the massage. I took thai yoga and it was very good, what a work during 2hours and and a half.

I visited this spa almost 2 yrs ago and I swear it's gotten better. The caves smell better, the scrubs were better, the tranquility I felt and like my nerves were melting away, all BETTER. I could literally feel myself relaxing, and allowing the enjoyment to wash all over me. It was fantastic. Still my no.1 spa in the world,... More

Dear guest, we appreciate your words very much. While we did settle on what we believe to be our 'winning formula' some years ago, and try to appeal through consistently excellent service and a unique experience instead of introducing new services or 'fad' products, we do always look for how to maintain and improve the quality of our forest spa...it's...

I had my hens day at Tamarind springs and it was the absolute best experience. From the moment we walked in, we where greeted with smiles and fresh tea. The hot saunas in the rocks are unreal. At the end we had our spa package (massage etc) and everyone came out saying that was the best massage they had ever... More

My partner and I chose a 5 hr package - steam and dream, Prakop massage (Thai yoga massage for my partner) and Head massage. The day started early with a hotel pickup at 9am. We arrived at Tamarind around 9:30am and had to surrender our phones and camera immediately before starting the Steam & Dream. Embedded within natural rock formations... More

I love going to the spa ... who doesn't ? I especially enjoy travelling and trying out new experiences. This spa is certainly different, it's very natural ... Rock pools, forest setting, a very open massage experience ! I booked myself and two friends in for a package treat, I found the welcome hut a little basic but the staff... More

I surprised my girlfriend by taking her to the spa for the day for our anniversary. I chose the forest dreaming package worth 5500 THB per person, which entailed a 1.5 scrub and steam, and a 2.5 hour massage. During the steam and scrub, you have the freedom to roam around the gardens, swim in the rock pools, use the... More

I wish I was still there it was that good. You can go earlier than your allotted time and I wish we had, I strongly suggest it. You get complimentary snacks and drinks so to make the most of your time maybe get there 30 minutes earlier. The massage was outstanding and tailored to you.

Thank you so much. Indeed, if you need more than the standard 90mins inside the herbal steam caves and rock pools area, simply come earlier and enjoy this part of the treatment for longer. All the best and see you again maybe. More
