Two recommended spas in Kathu, Phuket
Everyone needs a little pampering from time to time, especially after a hard day on the beach or on any number of Phuket activity tours.
Luckily Phuket has an abundance of options to help you relax, from a 300 baht massage on the beach to a luxury spa treatment costing thousands of baht. We would love to try them all but we really only have experience of the spas close to our base in Kathu, which is close to Patong beach.
These spas will suit you if you are staying in Patong, or if you have some time to kill on your way to the airport. They are also close by to other activities in Kathu such as Tiger Kingdom, Jungle Bungy, Phuket go-kart, Phuket wake park and Flying Hanuman so adding a quick spa treatment is convenient if you are in the area already.
Mookda Spa is a tranquil oasis that offers luxury pampering without the astronomical price tag. A two hour package is 2,000 baht, three hours is 2,500 baht. When you arrive you will be given a menu of treatments to choose from, choose and two with the two hour package or three with the three hour package.
1. Aromatherapy Oil Body Massage.
2. Mookda Authentic Massage.
3. Thai Hot Herbal Compress Massage.
4. Thai Herbal Facial Massage & Treatment.
5. Foot Reflexology Massage.
6. Thai Herbal Body Scrub.
7. Thai Herbal Body mask.
8. Manicure & Pedicure & Painting.
9. Hair Spa with Coconut Oil and Hair Shampoo Blow dry & set.
10. Thai Authentic Herbal Bath.

For a more local experience we recommend Kathu Herbal Sauna in soi Namtok Kathu. It’s located a couple of hundred metres before Kathu waterfall on the same road as the Phuket wake park and the Flying Hanuman.
Entry to the sauna is just 400 baht, Thai massages are 300 baht per hour.
This isn’t really a place to come an be pampered but more a place to just come and unwind for a couple of hours. It’s a lovely natural setting, we like to just sit by the lake and watch the catfish and terrapins swimming.
