Thailand for the Solo Traveller

Why the wellness wonders of this country make for the ultimate solo retreat...

Considering every aspect of your body, including genetics, mindset and goals, to unlock your full potential, Wellness retreats are highly personalised. Where the day-to-day becomes weighed down with responsibilities that are largely focussed on others, these are an opportunity to remove distractions and embark on your personal journey. Solo travellers are increasingly choosing destinations like Thailand for their wellness escape, as it allows them to place such an important escape in the hands of highly trained experts.

Thailand's history is inherently linked to wellness, with ancient roots in Ayurveda that have become intertwined with modern medicines. For those who are navigating self-care, soul searching and reconnection on their own terms, these are some of Thailand's best wellness retreats for solo travellers.


Amanpuri sets the tone for seclusion immediately, offering peaceful privacy on its own peninsula. The name itself, Amanpuri, translates from Sanskrit to mean 'a place of peace', affording you an escape where you can truly focus on yourself away from distractions.

Shrouded by lush tropical greenery, both the villas and pavilions here guarantee space and seclusion. Complimentary movement classes, watersports and access to wellness facilities introduce you to your personal journey alongside like-minded travellers.

Programmes, like our featured Mindfulness and Stress Management programme, are entirely bespoke to you. A body composition analysis and TCM consultation by a certified medical professional gains insight into your current health, allowing Amanpuri's specialists to provide nutrition and lifestyle advice personalised to you.
