The Spa Resort, set on the beach side of the main road in North Lamai just a short walk from town, is best known for its detox, massage and spa rather than for its accommodation, although its rooms are fine.
The dark timber A-frame bungalows are set around a pool and are small, but have everything you need including air-con, mosquito net, drinking water and a safe. They also have standard hotel-style rooms. The Spa Resort has a team of staff dedicated to help your detox programme, as well as a steam room, sauna, spa, daily yoga and meditation. It is most well known for Radiance, their health-oriented beachfront restaurant with a huge variety of dishes suited to vegetarians, vegans, raw food lovers and fasters, served by staff wearing T-shirts reading, ‘Shit happens’. There is also more accommodation at their Spa Resort Village in Lamai. This part of the beach is not great for swimming, with mudflats and a boat breakwater.
