The herbal sauna and Thai massage at Wat Pho Temple in Baan Tai village Koh Phangan is open 7 days a week from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Come and enjoy the many great benefits of a traditional herbal steam sauna where natural herbs like lemongrass are heated by a log wood fire to create the steam that is filtered into the sauna. The herbal steam has many health benefits for the body from helping to reduce high cholesterol levels to improving skin conditions such as dry skin and eczema to name just a few!

If you’ve been partying too hard or just feeling like doing something good for yourself then this is the place to go!

So, if you’ve just arrived on Koh Phangan, the party island in the South of Thailand, and have been traveling for days or you’ve been here for some months, then come and relax at the herbal sauna and cleanse you body from head to toe!

Traditional Thai Massage is 150 Baht per hour! A donation to help pay for the firewood and medicinal herbs would be more than appreciated!

The Buddhist temple Wat Pho is located in Baan Tai village, a 10 minutes drive from Thongsala towards world famous Full Moon Party beach Hadrin, at the south coast of Koh Phangan Island.

      Please remember that if you do use the sauna then a donation is compulsory!!!!!! – just because it seems free doesn’t mean you can take and not give a little back, so all you ISRAELITES out there, after a steam, put your bong hand in your pocket and pay your way!

    PAY YOUR WAY – DONATIONS ARE COMPULSORY! THIS IS NOT A FREE SAUNA – PLEASE RESPECT THAI TRADITIONS – FAT ENGLISH BIRDS – YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO – COVER IT ALL UP!

      aehm – sorry mate 🙁 – the herbal sauna is of course FOR FREE ! it’s a FREE service offered by the local temple Wat Pho and the abbot ! the donations are in deed NOT COMPULSORY !! just give some money if you feel like it – otherwise just don’t give any ! it’s your free choice 🙂 ! and by the way, thais normally never give a single baht though they really can afford it – we made them very rich people, isn’t it 🙂 ! and there’s enough money coming in from the donations – so what’s the whole thing about ?!?

        hey tight boy slim……

        all farangs using the service of the local temple which provides for the local community and not YOU………….should pay for the privilage of using a free service for the locals………are you a local? I think not so everyone can pay a little, so what if the Thais don’t pay, thats up to them, if the Thais throw beer bottles in the jungle does that mean you have to do it as well? come on use your common sense and respect the fact that you are a guest and should behave accordingly……

          The sauna is there to promote good health. It is part of the buddhist temple. For a westerner it is a unique experience not commonly found in there home country. As vacationers the onus leans more toward them to pay what they can comming from a much richer country. But, it is also an act of charity and people should exercise there good conscience accordingly.

          It should not become a subject of argument between thais and westerners. It creates too much negativity for a place which promotes positivity. People have ample opportunity to complain about what they dislike about the thai way etc. This type of mental activity should not be done at a buddhist temple.
