Top 10 Value Spas

The soothing lake at Banpu Resort and Spa in Thailand, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Value Spas


Banpu Resort and Spa
199 Moo1
Tambol Nongkhansong
Muang District, Trat 23000

Bungalow-style log cabins float on the water like lotus flowers at this tropical retreat on the Koh Pu Peninsula in Eastern Thailand. For as little as 1,600 baht (approximately $46), guests can stay in bungalows in a mangrove forest, relax in a lakeside wooden cottage or enjoy a luxurious guest room overlooking the garden. At Banpu Health Spa (which is certified by the Thai Ministry of Public Health), treatments run the gamut from traditional Thai massage to herbal steam baths, aromatherapy, reflexology and hydrotherapy. Suan Pu, the resort's on-site seafood restaurant, serves up fresh fish at bargain prices. Guided island tours and modern conveniences like Wi-Fi are available as well. After enjoying the spa, take a trip to Wat Buppharam temple or Klong Kaeo Waterfall.
