Even though there’s been a recent surge in cases across Thailand, Phuket is working diligently to vaccinate 70% of its population, so the island can reopen for international tourism in July, following its original plan. We hope Phuket will be able to welcome tourists again very soon, and travelers will be able to unwind to the sound of swaying coconut trees and waves crashing on the shore, with the crisp blue ocean and pristine white sand as their everyday view, and deeply healing wellness treatments and retreats that help restore one’s state of wellbeing. Plan ahead and book any of these 9 wellness retreats in Phuket where nature and wellbeing will enrich your body, mind, and soul.
