Western travelers hit the island in the 70s to practice yoga and meditation and this spirit of healing persists — and now you can throw in four-handed massages between sun salutations.

Se: Skip busy Chaweng and Lamai beaches for quieter Mae Nam on the north coast and Taling Ngam down in the southwest.

Eat: Family-run Sa Bieng Lae has been serving super-fresh seafood to a lively local crowd for over 20 years. Don't miss the curried baby octopus.

Do: Detox in order? The secluded Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary offers hardcore two-week programs.

Stay:Banyan Tree Samui
