Are you looking for a way to relax and unwind while on vacation in Thailand? Look no further than the traditional Thai massages, body treatments, facials, and oil massages available throughout the country. Whether you're looking for a romantic couples massage or a therapeutic bath, you can find it in Thailand. Tipping rates vary depending on the length of service, but 50 baht for a 30-minute massage and 100 baht for an hour is a good rule of thumb. Foot massages are also popular in Thailand.
During a foot massage, the feet and lower legs are rubbed and firm pressure is placed on the feet and legs to help relieve body discomfort. The feeling that you are participating in some kind of tradition makes street massage an unmissable experience. Novotel Phuket Phokeethra's Leticia Spa offers a wide selection of spa and massage treatments, including traditional Thai massages, sports and foot massages, body wraps, body massages, and scrubs. The treatments depend on the packages chosen, with the most basic offering aromatic and foot massages or body scrubs and aromatic massages up to experiences of up to five hours.
Travelers will find an abundance of massage parlors in Phuket, ranging from informal beach massages to small salons in cities and tourist areas. The massage usually starts on the feet and the masseur will go all over the body until it reaches the head. It is important to let your massage therapist know if you feel any pain due to pressure as these massages can be quite intense. At the appointment, clients will be given clothes to change into (shirt and pants) which will be kept on during the massage.
Tipping is welcome at massage parlors in Phuket (and any other massage parlor in Thailand), as many massage therapists rely on tips as an important part of their salary. The award-winning Mandara Spa at JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa offers a variety of treatments including body treatments, facials, and massages. Thailand is renowned for its relaxing and rejuvenating massages, so getting one at a Phuket massage parlor should be high on your list of priorities when visiting Thailand. To maximize your massage time, consider staying at a hotel that also offers these services. Phuket has many excellent hotels and resorts that offer guests access to spa and massage services.
