Another thing that makes this spa den one of the best is its geographical position in the country. The resort is found North of Chiang Mai in one of the remote villages with a dense forest. The positioning of this resort makes it one of the coolest and quietest places to visit (Baker, 2013). Houses in this resort are built in resemblance to magical tree houses and are spacious enough to accommodate any size of families. More to this, the gentle sounds of the running water and birds flirting across the canopies make the place one of the most enjoyable places to be. To conclude about the resort, the green element of the resort is all that makes everything in the resort natural.

The Sarojin This spa resort is located in Khao Lak just amidst of the Lush national park. Another thing that makes it one of the best is its distance from the Phuket International Airport (Naditz, 2008). One of the best things that have awarded the resort its great status is its efforts and their passion for the environment. In the recent award, the resort gained the position one award as the best small green resort spa in the country. Apart from the spa services offered in the country, while at the resort one gets a chance to step outside the beachfront suites and villas, walk past the private plunge pool allocated to you and much more. On the same case, while at the resort spa, you get the opportunity to be cradled by Natai Beach which is a 20km long stretch that has pure white sand and also serves as a monument to the serenity (Naditz, 2008).

Kamala This is yet another great resort in Thailand where you can enjoy spa services. The hotel is well tucked in the forests of the western part of the Phuket island. Apart from massage services, while at this place you will be sure of forgetting the hectic lifestyle that Phuket is known for. This makes the island so large and giving tourists a feeling of being surrounded by water (Kristanti, 2016).

More to this, the island harbours many conservation and education centres. The place also harbours the Phuket houses, the Phuket Butterfly Garden and insect centre. On the same note, there is a wildlife park and a research centre for both animals and plants. It is not the first time Thailand as a nation has received global awards for being a pioneer in eco-tourism. To initiate the program the government played the role of holding campaigns on marrying education on conservation issues with deluxe getaways and providing adventure packages for any interested and mindful tourists (Kristanti, 2016). Ever since these campaigns began, the country started making improvements in revenues collected from low impact tours in the region.
