73 / 4 Petchkasem Rd., Hua Hin
We're dying to get here, as we've heard that it's a totally incredible experience. Besides the fact that you're in gorgeous Thailand, you can sign up for a packages like Art of Detox or Yoga for Life, or personalize a program with a mix of pampering (Thai massage, body wraps), workouts (yoga, Pilates, aquatic training), therapeutic bodywork (fascial release), and holistic medical treatments (body composition analysis and live blood analysis). Whatever happens, you'll eat well: The fresh and healthy Thai cuisine is infused with herbs and spices.
110 Moo 4, Koh Kood District
GP took a family trip here a few years ago that she still talks about today. It was incredible. First, Soneva is a wonderful company (see Soneva Fushi). Second, you can pick from 24 villas or 11 private residences, which all boast infinity pools and access to both beach and rainforest. But for kids, it’s a real freak out. There was a water slide in GP's villa, there’s an open-air cinema, and you can eat in the trees. (There’s also an ice cream parlor.)
The Four Seasons Golden Triangle
This tented camp in Thailand is an excellent option if you like adventure. A stay here will prominently feature elephant treks, boat outings along the river, and visits to the local Thai market. That said, this isn’t exactly a NOLS outfit—luxury tents feel incredibly isolated in the jungle, yet feature outdoor showers and hot tubs, luxurious bedding, and comfortable porches for sipping your morning tea. The service and in-house restaurant are incredible, and despite being isolated at a tent camp, the spa treatments (guests rave about the massages) want for nothing.
