Thailand is home of the affordable massage. While you can seemingly find a spa on every corner, not all massages are created equal. Chiang Mai is especially known for their massages in addition to other adventurous activities such as their elephant sanctuary, but you don’t have to choose between the two. Below are 5 amazing spas to get the best massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Where to get the Best massage in Chiang Mai
Call me biased, but I instantly fell in love with Fah Lanna Spa. From the freshly made ginger tea to the spa grounds, it was an experience. I opted for the Thai medicine ball massage but honestly, I would trust them with anything. I especially appreciate the questionnaire given beforehand to determine if I was having any issues, even those dealing with the skin such as tinea versicolor. Fah Lanna offers a plethora of massages, beauty treatments, waxing, and more.
2. Cheeva Spa
This spa is the perfect choice if you are solely interested in a spa package. The shortest package lasts 2 hours, which can seem to be the minimum time frame at most parlors in the city. They also offer various massages varying from Swedish to aromatherapy, it just depends on what you are in the mood for. You can literally have whatever you like.
3. Oasis Spa
The Oasis Spa has labelled themselves as a luxury experience that is “not just a spa ‘experience,’ but beyond.” For that very reason, I’d check out their signature massages, as I love to get a taste of what someone specializes in. Besides, you never know when you’ll get another change to experience the “Siamese Therapeutic Wisdom” massage or the “Oasis Four Hands” massage.
4. Kiyora Spa
The treatment menu at Kiyora Spa consists of Thai massages, holistic body massages, body scrubs and wraps, and facials. The facial treatments stand out to me the most as I never considered getting one while in Thailand. They have options for oily/combination skin and normal/dry skin. This spa caters to the individuals needs versus offering a one size fits all service.
5. Masumi Spa
This spa just may be the most affordable on the list but it’s perfect for those that want to save a few baht and possibly get several massages during their stay in Thailand. The best massage in Chiang Mai for you may be the place where you can get the most massages for the least amount of money. At Masumi you can find the usual massages offered in addition to body wraps and 30+ minute hydrotherapy sessions.
