Read about how we rank Things to Do.

Relaxing at a spa is a must-do in Phuket. The island's spas, like many in Thailand, feature aromatherapy, herbal treatments and traditional Thai oil massages, among other services, which makes for a unique experience not found stateside. Plus, for a relatively small island, Phuket boasts an extraordinary number of spas – hundreds – and compared to U.S. prices, spa treatments are relatively affordable in Phuket. 

Travelers say their experience at Phuket's spas were amazing – even perfect – but as with most things, you get what you pay for. Visitors who spent a bit more for their treatments and went with traveler-approved spas tended to be rewarded with clean, relaxing treatment rooms and out-of-this world massages while those that went with cheaper, less-reviewed places had disappointing experiences. 

Many of the island's top hotels, including the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa, Le Méridien Phuket Beach Resort and Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa, are home to some of the island's most lavish spas, but there are also several standalone spas that come recommended by recent travelers. So Thai Spa Phuket is one of the most popular, and prices range from about 1300 Thai baht (about $40) for a two-hour experience to 6000 Thai baht (about $180) for four-hour couples massage. Spa Burasari is another traveler-approved facility, and it uses the rare Burasari flower (which grows on the spa's grounds) in many of its treatments, including its 90-minute signature massage and traditional Thai massage.
