The Magic Of Thailand | Loi Krathong Festival
1st Nov 2017
As the light from hundreds of candles flicker and twinkle on the water in beautiful rafts shaped like lotus flowers, they carry the wishes and prayers of the people who launched them on their journey along rivers and streams.
Loi Krathong is one of the most picturesque festivals in Thailand, and sees people gathering around lakes, rivers and canals to pay their respects to the goddess of water by releasing candle-lit rafts beautifully decorated with flowers onto the water.
A symbol of new beginnings, the krathong is supposed to carry away all your problems and bad luck.
As part of National Spa Week, which runs between October 30 and November 5, SenSpa in the heart of the New Forest is celebrating its own Thai heritage by introducing a limited edition Loi Krathong Spa Day package.
The award-winning luxury Thai spa subtly blends Eastern and Western philosophies to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit. State-of-the-art facilities combine with authentic Thai therapies and delicious Thai cuisine to leave your body glowing, your mind renewed and your spirit soothed.
Our Therapists have been hard at work creating our very own Krathong to mark the magical festival:
The Loi Krathong Spa Day will see all guests invited to make a wish and light a Loi Krathong candle as they arrive. They will also be given a 60-minute treatment of their choice and a limited edition SenSpa Loi Krathong candle to take home.
Learning more about this wonderful Thai tradition is part of a day of pure indulgence at the luxury spa, where guests can soak away their cares in the world-class hydrotherapy pool and enjoy mouth-watering Thai cuisine in the beautiful Zen Garden restaurant.
Soak away all your cares in our Thai Sanctuary and book our latest special offer spa day. To book call 01590 624467 or

The SenSpa Health Club has become a second home to me! The staff are really friendly and I particularly enjoy the PT sessions - the social activities make it feel more like a club than a gym!"
"Greeted with a friendly 'sawadeeka', snug white robe, slippers and a cup of hot Thai green tea, SenSpa guests are treated to an impressive two-floor hydrotherapy haven."
"Why fly to Thailand? Lose the spa miles and go to the New Forest instead. The authentic Thai influence sets SenSpa apart from other spas."
The Good Spa Guide
"We are B-I-G fans of SenSpa‘s bodycare and haircare: unbelievably good value, and performance that rivals products 5, 6, sometimes 10 times the price.".
