RAKxa has incredible facilities, a spacious garden & superb lake setting, with high-rise Bangkok on the horizon.
RAKxa is one of the first integrated wellness and medical retreats in the entire region. Amazing attention to detail at every turn, from the range of treatments to the cuisine and the expansive garden estate which adds to the sense of relaxation.
It is operated in cooperation with Vitalife (https://www.vitallifeintegratedhealth.com) for medical wellness and Bumrungrad International hospital (https://www.bumrungrad.com/en) for scientific anti-ageing.
It is located on the artificial island of Bang Krachao, which is known locally as the green lungs of Bangkok. It is just 40 minutes drive south of central Bangkok on the Chao Phyra River, crossing over several small bridges. The “island” is authentic with small villages, no high-rise buildings, maybe more bikes than cars. The retreat grounds are expansive, green, lush & tropical, with most of the resort grouped around the natural lake with Bangkok clearly visible in the distance.
The two Bangkok airports are about 45 minutes drive away.
Note – The retreat is a dedicated health & wellness resort. Alcohol is not served or encouraged during your stay. Children under 16 years are not permitted. Mobile phone use is limited to private and not public areas and Wi-Fi can be deliberately restricted to certain areas. The intention is for you to de-stress and avoid the pressures of the outside world.
RAKxa has a selection of 62 low-rise villas. All are designed in a bright contemporary fashion and are extremely spacious.
They are linked to the main building by pathways and wooden bridges. Bikes can be hired for travelling around the retreat or buggies can be arranged on request.
There are 40 garden villas, staring at 80sqm interior space with bedroom, en suite bathroom and integrated lounge area. Each has its own hedged private garden.
The 20 Pool villas have similar interiors but are larger and have their own private pool.
In addition, there are two speciality suites.
- 2 organic themed restaurants
- Lounge with an extensive selection of healthy teas from the Asia region
- On-site organic garden & farm
- Outdoor swimming pool
- Indoor vitality pool
- Steam and sauna
- Hydrotherapy areas
- In-depth medical consultation on arrival to ascertain what you want to achieve from your stay and how you can get the best results with long-term suggestions

There are more than 11 wellness programmes to choose from including rest and reset, cleanse and purity, immunity booster, long covid recovery, gut health, de-stress, weight management, facial and body solutions.
Minimum stay required is 3 nights . Daily breakfast , lunch, dinner, afternoon tea with wellness or detox menus .
Without a doubt, RAKxa is one of the most exclusive wellness retreats in the entire South-East Asia region, and that is saying something!
The style, the facilities, and the expertise are all incredible, plus the design and layout just add to the sense of tranquillity. It will appeal to those who are serious about changing their lifestyle with the intention of continuing the good habits into their future life. It is at the upper end of the price scale, almost proudly, but that is reflected in the quality you are purchasing.
We have shown a 5-night price guide including the cleanse & purify programme.
Note: A 5-night programme is highly recommended, but this can be reduced to 3-nights or extended to 14-nights, as you wish. Plus, you have numerous alternative health programmes to consider.
Rakxa in Thai language means to preserve, restore and heal.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
