Excellent staff let down by the facilities. Staff could not have been kinder or more helpful however, the spa itself is dated and is missing some basic facilities to be able to compete with other spas on the island Pros Has a very nice rustic feel, you can definitely escape modern life and you are in safe and professional hands...

If you want some peace and relaxation it's the place to go! I booked a yoga retreat package and it's the best thing I have ever done. The retreat is small, there is no pool but it's right on the beach. The staff are the most loving, caring and they just could not do enough for you. They treated me...

If you would be treated like a queen or king and pampered like a baby in paradise, with such heartwarming people, spend a few days or longer in Ban Sabai for massages and a detox. Beautifully decorated in Thaistyle, along the beach Elisabeth
