Relax and be Pampered at Pathways Spa

Pathways is a secluded spa haven floating over the main estuary and central energy lay line of The Sarojin and hidden from view by fishtail palms. It looks out across the estuary and beyond to the Andaman Sea. Rustic yet comfortable, and privately entered by a meandering boardwalk, Pathways forms a key part of The Sarojin's 'well being' experience.

Massage in Thailand is described as an act of “Metta”, a Sanskrit Buddhist term used for an act of “loving kindness”. Thais believe all acts should be done with this feeling of “Metta”. This ancient and sacred belief gives life to the very heart of Pathways.

For centuries, Thai people and monks have used the natural healing properties of local herbs, trees, flowers and fruits to purify and rejuvenate their bodies and minds. The journey to purification of the spirit is achieved by combining these rich earthy ingredients into secret remedies passed down from generation to generation. Pathways is privileged to have been able to preserve some of these traditions from the Ancient Kingdom of Thailand in a luxurious selection of natural body treatments for your enjoyment.

Pathways features two double and two single treatment pavilions, with outdoor timber poled showers and secluded couples' baths set among natural surrounds, a facial treatment room, a post-treatment relaxation lounge area and a stilted Yoga and Tai Chi deck shaded by palms.

Pathways brings you a host of treatments that will soothe you, enrich you and reinvigorate your entire persona.
