THE BARAI is one of the premier luxury spas in Thailand set over 4.5 acres (18,500 square meters) of beachfront land and offering luxury residential spa accommodation, extensive spa treatments, signature massages, Yoga, Fitness and Healthy Lifestyle programs.
THE BARAI was designed by the renowned Thai architect, Khun Lek Bunnag, who was first inspired to create this project when he visited the Baton Temple in Cambodia’s Angkor. THE BARAI is named after ‘Barays’, the large man-made reservoirs created by the Khmers to channel irrigated water for their daily use, believed to be the life arteries of the empire, and as a source of life, wellbeing and healing.
The original meaning of spa is “healing by water”. Centered around water, the spa is designed to emphasise this essential element and it plays a significant role in THE BARAI experience. The water symbolises the source of life, a place to replenish, to rejuvenate and to heal.
Our essential offerings are customised authentic therapies and signature massages that are inspired by the traditions of ancient Thai health rituals combined with the best of Western therapies, Healthy dining and balancing Lifestyle options such as Yoga and Tai Chi.
