Luxurious, gay-friendly wellness holidays in Thailand
Considered one of the most tolerant countries in Asia, Thailand is the perfect location for gents looking for a deluxe, gay-friendly holiday experience. The cheering progress made in terms of LGBT rights, however, is not the only reason Thailand is so attractive for gay travellers.
Asian culture is known for its healing and rejuvenating lifestyle mainly provided through healthy, wholesome cooking and gentle, ancient body treatments. Explore the stunning natural surroundings that reach from hidden, marvellous beaches to lush, vibrating hills and valleys, before enjoying a relaxing massage with your loved one. Whether you want to rid your body of toxins that are hindering it from functioning properly, or are fully dedicating your holiday to de-stressing with luxurious spa treatments, Thailand has got it all.
Spend unforgettable days at this welcoming and exotic paradise that is as diverse as its guests and will leave you dreaming about healthy meals and holistic rituals. Not only can you spend precious, romantic moments with your loved one, but you will also notice the amazing benefits that such a relaxing, soothing break provides.
Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa
Rejuvenate your mind and body on a wellness spa holiday on one of Thailand’s most culturally rich islands. Boasting outstanding natural beauty, Mangosteen Resort & Ayurveda Spa offers a secluded paradise with stunning views of surrounding lush tropical gardens and hillsides. Embark on a spiritual journey with yoga, meditation or seek out adventure with snorkelling and sea canoeing, before reviving in the luxury spa. Mangosteen offers the perfect setting to explore beautiful surroundings and ease your weary mind as fragrant frangipani flowers and sweet aromas of incense surround you.
The luxurious Amanpuri resort is hidden inside the tropical, rampant greenery that stretches over Phuket’s west coast. Due to its exceptional location on a private island, you will experience a serene atmosphere, optimal for taking a relaxing time out. The cuisine is as innovative as the design of the complex, including the aerial accommodations and the sleek wellness centre. The kitchen relies on raw food, proven to harmonise the gut flora and reducing inflammation, for a healthier and lighter body. The spa spoils you with traditional Asian treatments like Chi Nei Tsang, an abdominal massage, while the gym challenges you with exciting workouts, such as Thai Chi and group movement sessions.
Amatara Wellness Resort
Vibrating, metropolitan streets or calming beaches – the location of the boutique Phuket Cleanse offers both. Situated in the south of the island of Phuket, this wellness retreat is a mecca for all health and fitness enthusiasts. The combination of wholesome and plant-based cooking and the generous offer of fitness activities and classes guarantees a revitalising, detoxifying holiday. The chef spoils you with raw vegan creations and vitamin-rich juices to kick-start a healthier lifestyle that can be deepened by increasing your knowledge about nutrition in a master cooking class. Stay active and improve your fitness level with an intense TRX training or a sweaty hot yoga class.

Overlooking the crystal-clear ocean in front of Phuket’s south coast, Amatara Wellness Resort is the perfect hideaway for couples that are in need of a spa holiday. Discover how good healthy, nutritious meals can taste and learn how to prepare them yourself during an interesting cooking class. Power yourself out using state-of-the-art facilities at the gym, or breathe in fresh air and challenge your balance with stand-up paddle boarding. Enjoy the magnificent view from your private balcony or find harmony during a luxurious spa treatment or an exclusive Thai Hammam session. After spending some time at the refreshing tropical coast, you will find yourself feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.
If you want to stay active and fit during your holiday, the Thanyapura retreat is the perfect location for you. Always catching up on the world’s newest fitness trends, the gym provides everything you need for a fitness holiday that increases well-being and physical performance. Target your problem zones with the help of a personal trainer or explore the beautiful landscape during a hot run in the greenery. Should you have even bigger plans considering your fitness, you can also train in the Olympic swimming pool before attending an Ironman race. However, be sure to plan some time for a spa treatment to de-stress and harmonise your body, before heading back home.
