Songkran is a super fun event on the annual calendar in Thailand. Known as the Thai New Year, Songkran is deep-rooted in tradition and culture. The festival lasts for three days, but it truly is a mass celebration across Thailand. This year, Songkran takes places from the 13th to 15th of April and is sure to be a wonderful time.

Songkran has to be seen to be believed. Not only is it a traditional Thai festival, it’s also the largest water festival in the country. As April is the hottest month, the water feels cool and refreshing. Kata Beach is Santosa’s local beach and is sure to have many fun activities during the Songkran Festival such as a mass water fight, music and traditional ceremonies. 

As Songkran signifies the Thai New Year and a new year often means a new start, perhaps this Thai festival can also be the perfect time to reevaluate your health or put new passion into the fitness goals you started at the beginning of 2018. Once you have had a chance to take part in the festivities, why not take the time to treat yourself?

Pamper Yourself During Songkran 

Let Songkran be the time where you restart your “New Year, New You” mentality and take advantage of all that Santosa has to offer. Are you short on time? If you only have a day or two to look after yourself, why not take part in one of our well-rounded One Day Program options? The One Day Detox, One Day Relax and Spring Clean programs are loaded with health & wellness activities and give a real snapshot into what some of the longer programs at our detox retreat are like to experience.

During Songkran, if you have a longer break and are looking to kickstart your health into high gear, check out some of our multiple day detox programs which include the Emotional Detox Program, Full Fast, Raw Food Fast, Active Cleanse, Healthy Eating Program and the Yoga & SPA Retreat. These programs are all professional and tailored to individual needs and goals. 

In the event that you are just looking for a place to relax during Songkran, perhaps in between the festivities, you are always welcome to join one of the Santosa fitness classes or enjoy a fresh fruit juice or smoothie at our Juice Bar. If you are feeling hungry and looking for a nourishing meal to provide you with energy to continue the water play, drop into Santosa Vegan Restaurant for a delicious, healthy plant-based meal.
