Why leave the resort? 

The one-year-old Cape Kudu Hotel (076-592-600, www.capekuduhotel.com), which sits on the secluded east coast of Koh Yao Noi, a charming and little-developed island between Krabi and Phuket, has just upped its weekend getaway credentials with the unveiling of its own spa.

Occupying a gorgeous white-washed villa, Cape Spa’s treatment rooms are defined by open windows, billowing curtains and tasteful rattan touches. Treatments run the full gamut from traditional Thai and Indian head massages to reflexology and body scrubs using only natural ingredients. Try the three-hour Cape Kudu Blossoming (B4,300), which uses aromatic tropical flowers to help you re-energize and rejuvenate.

Sound all too tempting? Rooms start at B4,078/night.
