Eranda Spa on Koh Samui

I’ve been coming to Eranda Spa on Koh Samui for three years. The first time I came here was due to a very well-known spa being fully booked, so Eranda, a spa that I had never heard of became the choice.

Eranda is located just a few kilometers from Chaweng Beach and their van will pick you up free of charge and transport you to their spa. And, of course, back to your hotel.

Once you arrive, you will notice that the spa is built on a hillside with lush foliage surrounding the massage bungalows.  You are immediately escorted to reception where you are offered a menu of services. While making the decision, you are served a cup of herbal tea that begins your process of renewal.  With the quiet ambiance and the tea,  your stress begins to drain away.  And you haven’t even started your treatment yet.

You are then taken to your “bungalow” where the masseuses are awaiting.  The bungalow is private.  The one that we had was comprised of two rooms, the massage room itself with two massage beds and another room that had a sunken bath for two, a steam room and of course a shower.  The “bath” room has an open air view of the lush vegetation. There was a view of the sea but this was somewhat obscured by the beautiful tropical foliage.  In the background very quiet new age music Thai style is being played.

The package we purchased included 90 minutes of aromatherapy, preceded by 30 minutes in any combination of steam room and bath to your heart’s content.

I did miss their outdoor cold water pool which was closed for renovation.   I loved being able to spend time in the sauna room and then jumping in the cold bracing water.  To me that was sheer heaven.  They expect the renovation to finish soon.  Can’t wait.

I asked for a “medium” pressure massage and it was delivered as ordered.  They used tangerine scented oil which I had selected at reception.   Just the scent was enough to make me sleepy.  I ended up sleeping almost the entire massage.

I recommend the Eranda Spa without any hesitation.  I have been there twice and both times, it has lived up to its reputation.  Although there are many spas to select from on Samui and I have visited around ten,  this is the one I select for sheer pleasure.

  2. It’s a great place to reduce stress. And it’s not expensive however this depends on the package you select.
