Onsen Resort in Pattaya


Onsen, the Japanese term for ‘hot spring’ or ‘resort built around a hot spring’, have recently started popping up in many of Thailand’s cities.

Ma-Du-El Zen Resort is a newly opened onsen on Koh Larn Island, Pattaya, which is only 3-hours away from Bangkok. With just a short drive to the resort, visitors can be transported to Japan for a short while – Ma-Du-El-Zen utilises a Japanese-style minimalistic design that is sure to open up your chakras.

Ma-Du-El Zen Resort sets the onsen to stay at 40°C, the optimum temperature for muscle relaxation and facial steaming.

If you haven’t gone to Japan, or are missing being a tourist there, the resort offers its visitors a little piece of the nation. They even provide yukata, traditional Japanese casual-wear that is a staple for all onsen, at Ma-Du-El Zen Resort.

The resort’s outdoor garden is also decorated with Sakura, or ‘cherry blossoms’, which are the signature vibrant pink flowers that the whole world knows are from Japan.
