therapy in nature.

Our Spa area brings together a variety of environments. It offers the authentic feel of Thailand with a shared treatment space as well as the option for more private experiences. Private sessions are held in a special air-conditioned treatment room or one of our stunning salas directly overlooking the sea. The shared open space supports privacy while maintaining the traditional community spa experience popular in the East. Our private sea view spa salas sit just above the sea and and have thatched roofs for shade. Nestled in tropical greenery, you’re invited to enjoy your treatment in the middle of nature. As you relax into a soothing massage or deep tissue therapy, the gentle sound of the waves promotes peacefulness.

We’ll send you off recharged, inspired by nature, and prepped to step into a state of flow. This outdoor haven was crafted with love and geared to calm the senses. Built into the rocky hillside overlooking the ocean below Bliss is the place to bathe in the glow of Samui’s powerful healing environment. During your treatment of choice, you’ll feel the kiss of the sea breeze on your skin and the sound of crashing waves in your ears. 

VIKASA Bliss Spa is open daily from 10am until 7pm. 

PLACE

Bliss Spa is perched on a cliff-side overlooking the stunning Gulf of Thailand, you’ll enjoy a traditional massage in a beautiful setting of glistening, brilliant blue ocean, tall coconut trees and lush greenery. The spa is located at the bottom of the property, right over the ocean. Walk past Life Cafe and down the infamous stairs, follow the signs to pure bliss. n

AROMA

The five elements are the essence of the entire world, both within and outside of you. Balance your body and mind by connecting with one of the elements in this soothing aromatic massage. Select one of our exclusive essential oil blends to benefit from their influence on your character and natural abilities. Close your eyes, inhale deeply and allow your inner guide to choose which healing oil will best balance your current state.

TRADITION

Centuries ago, a dynamic therapy based on yoga and Ayurveda was born in the temples of Thailand. In this unique healing system, a therapist guides you through a series of postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy lines and pressure points. When combined, these actions help relieve muscular tension, improve circulation and balance the body’s energy centres. Enjoy a 400-year-old traditional Thai body treatment which offers a host of therapeutic benefits to the recipient, including anti-inflammatory, local analgesic and muscle relaxing properties. Unwind and relax as your therapist integrates warm herbal compression techniques with massage, encouraging your pores to open, your body to detoxify and your muscles and soft tissue to release, regenerate and repair.

NATURE

We believe the natural environment has a profound and direct impact on your treatment. That's why we took extra care to design a spa which floats over the ocean and the cliff rocks below. There really is nothing quite like listening to the sound of the crashing waves below while you're getting expertly massaged.

Local tradition in a community setting.

Unlike the West, where spa treatments are given in private settings, many of our services are offered in the traditional Thai way—in an environment of community. In Thai tradition, massage is performed on comfortable mats on the floor. While you may share the massage sala with one or two other guests during your treatment, rest assured you will be able to maintain complete modesty, and enjoy semi-private screening from other guests. If you would prefer more privacy, our spa has a comfortable, double, air-conditioned treatment room and a peaceful outdoor pagoda, built onto a rocky cliff overlooking the stunning Gulf of Thailand. This chill-zone is technology free by design, liberated from the daily grind and refreshingly phone-free.

alternative healing.

Alternative Healing Therapies are healing methodologies that differ from the usual line of treatment than that of a doctor. In other words therapeutic practices that are currently not considered as an integral part of conventional medical practice are classified as alternate healing therapies or alternate medicine. Many a times the benefits and healing abilities of these therapies are established through research, other times they may be unproven scientifically. With alternate healing therapies, healing, treatment and cure may be achieved through diet, self healing mechanism of the human body, various energies, herbal and other supplements and much more. Few of these healing techniques are thousand of years older than conventional medicines. Over the last couple of decades there has been a renewed interest in holistic and natural healing and thus various alternative healing therapies have found acceptance.

The path to wellness is a journey, not a destination.

One Yogi's quest for her perfect spa match

Let me slice through the BS straight to full disclosure. I am not a glamorous yogi. My asanas aren't Instagram-grade. The pants I wore to class yesterday have a few holes earned from a brush with death between a semi-truck and my motorbike. My nails aren't filed and my sundried hair doesn’t always smell like plumerias. I like yoga, but when it comes to the polished veneer of the yoga world, most of the time I just can't be arsed.

Body care treatments are any yogi's delight. There's nothing quite as heavenly as surrendering to a pair of strong hands when you need it most and nothing better than having your muscles to goo after a straight week of practice.

But as you can imagine, I can't jive with the try-hard opulence of high-class spas. The sterile white walls. The floaty background music. The rigid staff nervously smiling and they lead me past Ikea wall art to the massage table.

Places like this make me feel even more anxious than before I arrive. Do I have to whisper like it's a library? Should I show up wearing something nice, only to end up getting naked? Wait, should I even get naked? My down-to-earth spirit can't relax at those spas. How am I supposed to melt into a pool of warm butter when the vibe is so frigid? And what’s with those signs subtly suggesting that customers leave a 30% tip? Nope. High-end spas are just not my bag.

On the other hand, low-end massage isn't exactly a good idea. I mean, it's body care, and we've all had weird experiences with "healers" who were "trained" by their cousin's brother's shaman's neighbor and don't actually know the first thing about anatomy. You don't want someone like that messing with your energy systems or worse, your neck.

I struggled with this dilemma during my first days on Koh Samui. Where does an inelegant yogi go for a good massage?

I searched far and wide, friend, believe me. Each day, like the massage slut I am, I hopped around from shop to shop, looking for a heaven-on-Earth spot to provide my fix. But it was more of the same. White fluffy robes and animal towel art on one side of the spectrum and a sketchy lack of qualifications on the other.

Then I found Bliss.

It shouldn’t come as a complete surprise that I’m a fan of Vikasa’s Bliss Spa since I’m a long standing preacher spouting the gospel of the magical place known as Vikasa. Incase you don’t already know, Vikasa is a Yoga Retreat built into a hillside on the east side of Samui. And apparently, they have a spa as well. Who knew?

The first time I went to Vikasa, I met my friend for lunch at the resort's open-air restaurant, which sits atop the hill overlooking a gobsmacking view of the sea and Chaweng beach to the north.

My friend, a longtime expat local and fanatical Vikasa groupie, urged me to take my massage-shop sluttery to Bliss for an oil-glistened roll in the hay.

I squinted dismissively. "I dunno, dude. I've got an aversion to resort spas."

He snorted. "Nah, it's not like that. They're very mellow."

Mellow, you say?

"Yeah, but they're good. The Thai masseuses are all medically trained, and the place has alternative treatments too. They're certified in Reiki and stuff like that."

Certified, you say?

I was intrigued, so I hit up the front desk after lunch and booked an hour-long oil massage.

At 5:30 the next day, I was led down to my state Bliss. The 'spa' was actually not really a spa at all! It’s more of a series of tiny open-air salas built into the rocks by the water. Good omen number one: no ethereal new-age soundtrack. Nothing but the sound of sweet lapping waves.

Good omen number two: Their no-technology policy. All things that beep and buzz are banned, I was told, so I switched off my celly and felt my excitement go up three notches at the prospect of a spa that insists on bringing the vibe down to earth.

Stripping down to my skibbies, I lay on my stomach and looked out over the sunset, feeling it warm me like baking bread as the sea breeze kissed my skin. The Thai masseuse got out her oil and went to town, methodically working the kinks out of my body until I drifted, teetering on that edge between wakefulness and a dream.

An hour later I walked out of there thoroughly blissed out, drunk on my own energy and vowing to return to try the other treatments.

I checked the menu before leaving and saw that my friend was right. They have a nice selection of massages, Reiki, Craniosacral and several other types of treatments. I know fairly little about these things myself, but I've always wanted to experience them, particularly at the hands of certified yoga teachers with years of experience in the niche of alternative healing.

I'll level with you: Bliss isn't the cheapest date out there but it’s refreshing to see a place that invests in the quality of therapists rather than spa themed gimics. So there you have it, I finally found a gem of a spa that can make a down-to-earth yogi like me feel welcome and fulfill my desire for qualified body care. Thank you, Vikasa Bliss Spa!
