About us - Ban Sabai Reosrts and Spa Koh Samui and Chiang Mai, Thailand


In 1996 we started work on our first Ban Sabai Spa for Health and Well-being in our existing classic Ayudhaya-style wooden house.  Our concept then, as now, was for our guests to relax, celebrate their stay and let us focus on their health and well-being.

            As time went on, more and more guests kept returning, so 2000 we extended our spa facilities with an additional Ayuthaya house as reception and changing rooms, several treatment salas, Steam room, Whirlpool, pond and lush tropical gardens and all this right on the beach. Visitors enjoyed a variety of treatment packages and many stayed with us for days, and sometimes weeks, at a time. Whether it was just for a relaxing few hours, or as a fully-programmed retreat.
