In The Know
Discover unique insider’s perspectives, and gain a deeper understanding of Samui and Thai culture with our In The Know experience.
A unique culinary treasure of Thailand is the art of candle scenting— an aromatic candle made from beeswax, dried flowers and essential oils is lit in a jar; food placed in the jar becomes infused with the scent of the candle. It was popularised during the reign of King Rama V, but is only practiced by few traditional chefs today.
At Baan Thai Spa by HARNN candle scenting has been revived. Experience the fragrant and sweet smoky aroma of the Jasmine Candle-Scented White Mulberry Tisane on the secluded balcony of our tranquil spa to complete your holistic spa treatment.
