Phuket, the world renowned beach report town, has been known for its azure sea water, white sandy beaches, magnificent landscape, variety of activities and bargain shopping.  Recently, Phuket has joined the global trend of health and wellness tourism with increasing number of world class health and wellness facilities.

Hospitals, clinics, spa and wellness retreats are competing in developing themselves to meet the international standards to attract a wide variety of those who are seeking for better health and improving their wellness.


With the help and support from both central and local governments, and also local private sectors, in research and development, Phuket has everything to offer its visitors from stage of the art medical treatments, Thai traditional medicine, alternative treatments and therapies for to heal both the body and soul. 


Large number of Phuket health and wellness tourists are from South Asia, Japan, US, UK, Europe, middle east and China. Meanwhile, the forming of ASEAN also helps catalyse people from neighbouring countries to travel to Phuket and seek for health treatments. The local authorities said nearly half of health tourists seek for cosmetic operations in international accredited hospitals. While number of those who visit spas and health retreats are climbing up in every year.


With Phuket’s high growth over the last decade, existing facilities have had a hard time coping with demand and more investment have been poured in to cope with the situation. Local entrepreneurs unite to be able to offer better services, such as the Spa Association of Phuket. The association has organized an annual spa and wellness fair offering cheaper packages and other promotion for tourists.
