If you’ve come to Phuket to relax, there’s no better way to accomplish your goal than to visit one of the island’s many spas. Luxurious hotels like Keemala, Banyan Tree, Anantara Mai Khao, and The Nai Harn all have top-rated spas but even the smallest resorts offer full spa service. As well, you can find good, affordable massages along any beach and in storefronts in the tourist areas.

Let’s Relax (www.letsrelaxspa.com) is a chain with five locations across the island, so you’ll never be too far from a super-pampering four-hand massage (that’s where two masseuses work out the knots at once) for 1,100B. There are foot massages in La-Z-Boy-like massage chairs for 450B an hour. Prices tend to be lower here, and the ambiance isn't as swanky, but the staff are expert and very nice).
