The Makkha Story
The Makkha Story
Centrally located in the heart of the seventh century city of Chiang Mai, a city surrounded by an ancient moat and sprinkled with gleaming temples and golden pagodas, Makkha Health & Spa offers a sanctuary of calm elegance where guests can truly find relaxation and peace. Only one minute’s walk from Wat Phra Singh and the Sunday Walking Street, we also offer a free shuttle service to all city locations.
Even though they are next to one another, the Makkha Health & Spa Colonial and the Makkha Health & Spa Ancient House offer very different moods and experiences. They have in common the impeccably high standards for which these spas are famous.
Makkha Health & Spa Ancient House is set in a charming, newly renovated, fifty-year-old wooden house. Its new design honours its history and at the same time is decidedly modern to meet today’s international standards in a luxury health day spa. Gleaming teak floor boards, intricately carved panelling and surrounding tropical gardens celebrate the house’s community roots, while stylish furnishing, mood lighting and other modern features are designed for maximum calm and relaxation.
Makkha Health & Spa Colonial Gardens is a purpose-built spa whose design has drawn inspiration from the strong architectural influences of the colonial era. It features soaring ceilings, cool marble tiles, glass panelling, cascades of sunlight and a turquoise blue pool next to a floor-to-ceiling living green wall. The combined effect offers a setting unlike any other spa and creates a truly special space with its own distinctive atmosphere.
Makkha Health & Spa Night Bazaar the newly opened in the bustling heart of the Night Bazaar and offers a modern Zen vibe for shoppers and visitors seeking a respite from the busy streets. It is designed as a place to escape, to find harmony and relaxation, and to release stress. White and brown colours are used in the décor which is simple yet elegant, inviting and casual.
Each and every single sense will be teased and soothed: the sound of trickling water, the perfume of a natural essential oil or herbal compress. Your eyes linger on the unique setting, taste buds tingle with warm herbal teas and your body is treated by the most professional of masseuses…all in the seclusion and comfort of a private room.
Each of our massage therapists is professionally qualified and highly experienced. After completing a theoretical and practical training course lasting 300 hours, every masseuse is certified by the Ministry of Health. All treatments use standardized techniques to ensure the highest quality massage with guaranteed relief from the day’s stress.
