THE BARAI is one of the premier luxury spas in Thailand set over 4.5 acres (18,500 square metres) of Hua Hin beachfront land. It offers luxury residential spa accommodation, extensive spa treatments, signature massages, as well as Yoga, Fitness and Healthy Lifestyle programmes.
THE BARAI was designed by renowned Thai architect Khun Lek Bunnag, who was first inspired to create this project when he visited the Baton Temple in Cambodia’s Angkor. THE BARAI is named after ‘Barays’, the large man-made reservoirs created by the Khmers to channel irrigated water for their daily use, believed to be the life arteries of the empire and a source of life, wellbeing and healing.
THE BARAI is a journey of the mind, body and spirit, with the architecture as the guide. The goal of the journey is a delightful feeling of peace and tranquility deep within your inner self. Art is the defining aspect of the architecture, which has been designed to create moods and elicit an emotional impact. THE BARAI exudes a holistic approach to wellness to provide the path to inner tranquility. Custom-designed treatments echoing your personal needs and desires allow you to create the journey that is best suited to your own body, mind and spirit.
The original meaning of spa is “healing by water”. Centered around water, the spa is designed to emphasise this essential element and it plays a significant role in THE BARAI experience. The water symbolises the source of life, a place to replenish, to rejuvenate and to heal.
