Amity Wellness, Phuket, Thailand

Guest Writer, Gaye Gerard

The award winning Amity Wellness should be top of your list for anyone seeking a healthy escape at a spa resort. Featuring cleansing elixirs, divine raw food, and heavenly massage in a serene sanctuary, it’s a place for couples or friends to take a spa break to revitalise their health and reduce stress at the deepest level. 

  • Location: Amity Wellness is a 50 minute drive from Phuket airport, close to Phuket’s best beaches on the southeastern coast of the island.
  • Accommodations: The resort has 11 beautifully appointed rooms complete with a modern décor and their own private en-suite. All accommodations are steps away from the resort’s tropical pool.
  • Dining Options: Your stay at Amity is an all-inclusive package. One food program option includes a range of fresh cold pressed juices and nourishing raw food created from locally sourced and mostly organic ingredients, which you can enjoy sitting around the tropical pool or in the comfort of your room. If you are on a cleanse program, it will include a range of daily curated supplements and elixirs.
  • What Else is there: Michelle, the resort’s owner, has meticulously created a daily schedule of educational talks on a range of health topics led by international practitioners, which provides guests a unique experience to learn a new approach to healthy living encompassing all facets; body, mind, emotional and spiritual, for complete wellbeing. Private Yoga and Muay Thai can also be arranged. 
  • Wellness Programs: There are six cleanse programs, which include a delicious mix of properly combined raw food meals purposefully created with a focus on anti-inflammatory, anti-candida or detoxifying dishes combined with tasty fresh pressed juices, nourishing smoothies, probiotics and vitamin supplements. All programs are tailored for each guest and offer infrared saunas, colonics, inflammation pod treatments, healthy refreshments, luxurious daily massage which embraces both Thai and western practices and all guests receive a memory stick with an extensive collection of take home recipes and other educational materials to inspire your path to greater health.  
  • What’s nearby: If you feel like venturing out, you can hike to the island’s most popular lookout to experience the spectacular sunset views. Another option is to take the daily shuttle to enjoy the pristine waters of Nai Harn Beach or the local Thai Sauna a short drive away. And if you enjoy exploring on foot it's a two-minute walk to the main street, which has restaurants, shops and Thai massage spas.
  • Why go: If you’re a couple or group of friends who want to experience a full cleanse program with daily detoxifying rituals, exquisite raw food in an idyllic environment, and enjoy a sense of community with inspirational discussions to create deeper connection and healing within yourself this is a one of a kind retreat.

The Space

Amity Wellness is an oasis of serenity, simplicity and stillness, a boutique resort designed around a beautiful pool with a Thai inspired Juice Bar as the centre piece; it’s the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing coconut. Catch the midday sun swimming laps in the pool or laze on one of the lounges, and when you feel like being pampered the air conditioned spa awaits with soft relaxation music opening up onto a lush palm fringed garden next to a honey panelled sauna. There’s also a large yoga room where sunlight floods through the oversized windows and local Thai art and inspirational quotes adorn the walls in this uplifting setting where the daily workshops are held.

Where We Stayed

My superior room was situated at the corner of the retreat, and it was thoughtfully designed with peace in mind, and features including a TV, a desk, a large wardrobe, a private bathroom and a beautiful view overlooking the tropical pool, a stylish red hammock chair and sun lounges. All accommodations combine modern and Thai artisanal touches, as well as pure white plush cotton, to create a comfortable space. They also feature ceiling fans, air conditioning and a fridge which helps to make it feel like a home away from home. Loves
