November 2013 - dental work in Phuket
The dental work we received in Phuket we were 100% satisfied with, it is a clean, safe environment, and staa can communicate easily in english. Even my blood pressure was taken before each visit. Taxi drivers were always prompt to pick me up from my hotel. I would recommend it and met people there who had been before and returned.

Brilliant agency to book for a cosmetic/dental holiday. I had a breast augmention and dental work done at Yahnee International Hospital Bangkok. Hospital and staff were impeccable!! Not to mention the PS who did my augmentation Dr. Pramote. Absolutely amazing! Thanks Barbara and the team at Noosa Travel for making my dreams come true! I am a new confident woman!

October 2013 - group departure - dental work
I searched the internet and came across My Body & Spirit. I decided to go with this company because of the story behind it in regards to Barb and her husband. I liked the fact that I could go to a foreign country with an escort and as a group tour. Barb made me feel welcome and comfortable. I had a bout of food poisoning and Barb looked after me and made sure I was okay something I would have not got if I was there on my own. I received Dental treatment and my experience with the dentist was great. He was very kind and gentle and did an excellent job. I am looking forward to going back next year to get the rest of my dental work.
October 2013 - group departure - dental work
I was reluctant to go OS for dental treatment and it took about 18 months of research on the net before I finally went back to what seemed the best fit for my circumstances. Now I would be the biggest advocate for it.
Barb was the best host and made me and everyone in the group comfortable both at the hospital and arranged outings for anyone who wanted to attend when and where they wanted. We had some great nights out together. Who could have thought that having dental work done (I'm a dental phobic) would actual be so much fun. The group was great and many friends were made.

With urgent dental work required and only a few days to organize, Barbara and her team went above and beyond to arrange everything from our dental photos' to the appointments, transfers, flights and resort bookings, nothing was left to chance and we not only had a great holiday but the dental work is outstanding, with staff and hospital quality of the highest standard. We are telling all of our friends that if you require dental work then My Body & Spirit is a one stop shop and you will be not disappointed.

I would highly recommend Noosa Travel if you are contemplating getting dental work done in Thailand.
The dentist and dental hospital were first rate. Dr Supachai was gentle, caring and fastidious with his work. I am more than pleased with the work I had done. Noosa Travel's arrangements for me went like clockwork. The flights and transfers as well as the taxis to the dental appointments all went without a hitch. Once again, highly recommended.

Some people have the idea that getting any sort of dental or surgical work done in Thailand is risky. I can vouch that it is very clean and professional where I had my dental work done at Bangkok Phuket Hospital. I am very happy with the end result and the care and hygiene practised whilst going through all my procedures. The dentist also explained clearly at all times the procedures he is about to do and encourages you to stop at any time if you are uncomfortable. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering treatment.

Enjoyed the trip and it was great to have Barbara escorting us to the hospital and liasing with the hospital staff to ensure everything was running well.
She also took us to some great restaurants and gave us some shopping tips.

Most happy with my dental work. The dentist was very patient skilled and the outcome was excellent. Being in the group just gave that extra degree of security.. especially to the single travelers. Would not hesitate to return if I needed any further procedures. All staff at the hospital were extremely pleasant. And the hospital pre arranged pickups made the whole experience very easy.
Paula R. Coolum
We highly recommend the staff and Barbara from My Body & Spirit to anyone seeking a familiar experience. My wife and I both had dental work and extremely happy.
Fred S. Sunshine Coast
After my wife had her teeth crowned in Phuket last year, and our own dentist being amazed at the quality of the work that was performed (14 crowns in total), I had no hesitation in going back again and getting some dental work done myself, consisting of 4 crowns and a bridge, a filling and clean and scale - all for $2100 - and in only three appointments! Plus a brilliant holiday included as well. My wife & I are so happy with the treatment we received and the quality of work done that we are going back in October and taking our daughter to have some of her teeth crowned. The group travel aspect was superb, the escort, Kelly on this trip, arranged tours and dinners, etc., and everything ran as smooth as silk. Could not have wished for better.
John B. Ferny Hills, Brisbane
I am so happy with my dental treatment, Noosa Travel were quick to respond to all my requirements and gave me options. Everything ran like clockwork, airport transfers and hospital pickups. The whole experience has been wonderful and I have a smile to show it.
I went over to get all my teeth fixed with root canal, posts and crowns. I was always picked up on time from both hotel and hospital. The dentists I saw were friendly and professional. They took pride in the work they did - perfectionists. I now have a beautiful set of teeth that look natural rather than my broken, mismatched teeth. Can whole heartedly recommend this dental service: A"Class
I am very satisfied with the treatment and I am happy to go back for more.

I have recently returned back to Australia after having Breast Augmentation surgery in Phuket. After years of wanting to get this procedure done I finally worked up the courage to do it. I went on the escorted tour with Barbara and had an absolute ball. I met some wonderful people on our holiday which made the whole experience very memorable and enjoyable. The quality and level of treatment I received in the hospital and post surgery was outstanding. I can not speak more highly about them. Bothe the team at My Body & Spirit and at Bangkok Phuket Hospital, Phuket. I'm extremely happy with the results of my surger, thanks to Dr Piyapas with all modern conveniences. It would have put a lot of hospital rooms to shame in Australia. The Nursing Staff were very caring and attentive to my every needs.

October 2012 - Escorted group departure
We travelled in a small group from Brisbane Airport and met the rest of the group at our accommodation in Bangkok where we stayed for three days. We then travelled to Phuket and stayed at the Horizon Karon Resort for a further 12 days. Our group was very compatible and enjoyable. The group escort, Barbara made our trip very enjoyable by being attentive to our medical/dental requirements and coordinating meetings for shopping and meals. The group has indicated that they will be communicating with each other, exchanging photos and news from their ongoing lives. I can highly recommend the dental treatment I received at the Bangkok Phuket Hospital in Phuket and the group holiday I experienced with others and Barbara from My Body & Spirit.
July 2012 - Escorted group departure
Initially I was very apprehensive concerning my teeth and dentists. My history isn't the best - probably an understatement! My concern for my teeth was justified with many days of discomfort in the chair. Dr Thanit and the staff provided a positive, effecient, and cost effective procedures to repair my teeth. I am now really comfortable to smile again.
William B Noosa/Melbourne
I didn't know what to expect but found everything had been organised for me. The whole experience was very easy.
The whole dental experience was really so much better than what we receive at home. The hospital staff could not do enough to make you welcome and feel safe. I was extremely satisfied with my dental treatment. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be booking our next trip with Emily Tracey at My Body & Spirit. emily was on the ball reassuring us new travellers of all that would happen.

I found the whole experience very well organised and best of all worry free for us ( my husband and daughter travelled as well). Everything was arranged from the appointments to the transport to and from the hospital. The dental services were very professional and caring people with a high quality of workmanship. I love my new teeth, I am no longer self-conscious by my smile. We also had a wonderful holiday and a lot of fun with our fellow patients. Barb was always on hand to smooth out any concerns we had. I am looking forward to getting more work done next year!
Jenny B, Ferny Hills QLD
Hi my name is MX - I required dental treatment and was recommended to the Bangkok Phuket Hospital via My Body & Spirit. Initially, I was a little apprehensive having dental work done abroad but that fear faded very quickly once I commenced treatment at BPH. The doctors, dental assistands, general hospital staff operated like a well-oiled machine taking care of all your needs with a minimum of fuss. Certainly our hospitals in Australia could learn lessons on how to provide such superb customer service.
July 2012 - Escorted group departure
This was my first experience with Noosa Travel, Bangkok Hospital in Phuket and Thailand. From the inaugural meeting with Noosa Travel and the detailed information given at the open night what followed was a seamless flow of information about the trip detailing the hospital visits, clinic schedules and estimated treatment plan costs. On arrival at the hotel in Phuket, we were greeted by Barbara who checked us in to the hotel. Taxis met us at the hotel reception on the appointed days for our hospital visits and collected us after our treatment to take us back to the hotel. All this happens without any hitch. I was very impressed with the whole experience and I would not have any hesitation but to strongly recommend Noosa Travel to anyone else who may be contemplating Dental or Cosmetic surgery in the near future.

A very interesting experience as I hate dentists. Found the Bangkok Hospital Phuket to be absolutely first class in its treatment of patients, the dentists were extremely well trained, very caring and considerate at all times. My treatment for crown, extraction and brightening all went to plan. I must say that I was also rather ill 3 days prior to leaving Phuket and the Emergency Department of the Bangkok Hospital Phuket saw me within 5 minutes of arriving and gave me excellent treatment for dehydration, at a cost of around 1760 Baht (approx Aussie $55). Very impressive service, the costs are way cheaper than for dental services here in Australia, in fact we had a lovely holiday as well and still came out in front. If you are looking at major work being done on your teeth, then you should definitely consider the option of using this service. Barb was great as the host of the group, giving us the option of joining in group activities or leaving us to do what we wished.
Craig R, Qld
I wish to congratulate Barbara, My Body & Spirit for the professional and efficient way my trip to, accommodation in, and appointments for Dental work in Phuket were arranged. Plus insurance and futher travel arrangements - I can recommend their service without any reservationss whatsoever.
Anne, C. Qld
My experience through My Body & Spirit exceeded my expectations. All arrangements were taken care of. My appointments were on time and the hospital and staff were outstanding. I am very pleased with the results of my dental work and enjoyed Phuket and the Horizon Karon Resort as a holiday destination. The local tour guide - Tour East - were so helpful. Dr Supachai was great. I can't recommend the experience highly enought.
Chris P Penrith, NSW
I had wanted to have veneers done for cosmetic reasons. I was given good advice on what I could have and what else was needed and what to prioritise. With the limit of 2 weeks holiday there is no way we could have organised all of the appointments - just knowing where to go is a big thing to do on your own. Having it all organised before we left was fantastic.
I would recommend anyone who is thinking of any dental work done at Bangkok Hospital Phuket. The ground staff were very good and on time. The hospital was very clean and the staff were very professional.
Marty S, Noosa

I would highly recommend travelling with Barbara on the group departures. She goes out of her way to help you, with any problems she may have. Gets you to appointments on time, arranges anything you ask for, trips, tours or dining out.
April 2012 - Group Departure
We are so happy with our trip with Barb and Noosa Travel. Overall a very enjoyable experience. Would be quite happy to do it all again one day soon.

April 2012 - Group Departure
This was a great trip, well organised and lots of fun. For anybody considering surgery, I would say do your homework carefully and go for it! The Bangkok-Phuket Hospital is a beautiful building with wonderful staff and doctors, all very professional. One of the advantages of going with a group is that you can all commiserate with one another and share your nervousness and your stories. I went with a friend to hold my hand as well so that was even better. It was great to have Barbara show the way because she is familiar with the area and the procedures at the hospital, organising the taxi service and making initial introductions etc. which is reassuring and helpful in a different country. Although Patong Beach itself is crowded and busy with tourists, it is fun and easy to get around with plenty of distractions if you are feeling a bit under the weather!
My holiday treatment changed my life, all my anxiety and pre concepted ideas of the dental treatment were put at ease when I first seen the standard of the hospital "first class". The doctors were very professional as well, actually it started at the ushers at the door followed by the international visitors desk then the counter staff all communicating in good English. From the time you enter the hospital you are escorted from doctor to doctor, treatment to treatment. I'm glad I did book with Noosa Travel, I tried booking with an inferior travel agent and nearly didn't go as was not confident in the outcome they were offering. I was recommended to My Body and Spirit so I took my mates advice and I am so glad I did it's changed my life and my beliefs.
J. Davis, Melbourne
We were very satisfied with Noosa Travel and My Body and Spirit and would recommend the Bangkok Hopsital at Phuket Dental Clinic for their efficient and cost effective treatment.
Dave, Avoca Beach - NSW
My partner and I have just returned from getting dental work done at the Bangkok Hospital in Phuket. We were so pleasantly surprised, not just by the price, but the surroundings, it was really state of the Art and the staff were excellent and very efficient.
It was everything we hoped it would be, the staff spoke English, the Dentist was fabulous, he was so particular and precise, he did a marvellous job for us.
We booked our whole trip and dental procedures through Barbara at Body & Spirit, Barbara was great! She took the time to explain everything before we left and she arranged everything for us, including the transport to and from the Hospital, which gave us tremendous peace of mind.
She was only a phone call away, but it was so well organised we didn’t need help with anything, we would not hesitate to recommend The Bangkok Hospital in Phuket to anyone wanting to save money on their procedures and we would certainly recommend doing business with Barbara, she knows Phuket very well and therefore can give advice based on her own personal trips.
We really enjoyed the whole experience, saved money and had a terrific holiday as well!
J. White, Gold Coast
My experience at Bangkok Hospital Phuket was excellent. Dr Pongsakorn is very sincere and professional surgeon. He did a wonderful job with my breast augmentation. He is easy to understand, and explains things very well. The hospital was very clean and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. I would recommend Bangkok Hospital Phuket and Dr Pongsakorn for breast augmentation.
Rhiannon, M. Sunshine Coast.
Our trip to Phuket with Noosa Travel for dental treatment was most successful. My husband had a cataract operation whilst there and is very happy with the results. We have been referring our friends to our new dentists over in Phuket too.
Judy W - Cooroy
Just travelling for the second time for dental work to Phuket with MyBodyandSpirit. Cannot fault the service both here and there, would be happy to go again with Kirby's help if we need more dental work in the future!
Irene R - Pagewood NSW
Brilliant dental work-More then pleased they were efficient and helpful with seamless service. Caring dentistry and sursing staff, with attention to health and well being was constant.Relatively pain free, to the point where i feel asleep in the chair. We are constantly recommending this service. Cannot talk highly enough about it all.
It has taken me 4 years to get the courage to do this. No regret and should have done it years ago. The doctors and staff are so caring. Experienced no pain during my dental treatment. Going back to have more work done.
Sue S Noosa
Having a group turned into alot of good friends. We were all there together for each other but had our own privacy. I would like to thank you very much and congratulate Barbara on the organisation of the group departure. Thank you for visiting me in hospital to see I was doing fine and later at the hotel checking all was ok and the flowers you gave me at the hospital, how nice. Well done, will go again. Thank you
Barbara. Rae W Wynnum
After going to the dentist here in Australia I realised how unaffordable it was to have the work done here. So I started to look into dental work overseas and decided to book with My Body & Spirit. I am now telling everyone I speak too that is needing any dental work to contact Emma at My Body & Spirit and she will organise everything for you. I was so happy with the work and Phuket as a holiday destination I can't wait to go back.
Anne - Tewantin
I had the best time because of the group and the way Barb guided us through the days. I was alone but I had so much fun and all I want to do is return! From the moment I met everyone it was as though we had all known each other for years. I am sure Barb has a uniuqe gift and that is what brought us all together. I was a 71 year old travelling alone, and Barb knew how nervous I was regarding this trip. As soon as I arrived Barb met me in the hotel lobby and from that moment I lost all anxiety. I had the best time during my 22 day stay and returned to astonish everyone with the amazing change that had been carried out on my teeth. I fee, I must mention that my gums in some places because of my age had receeded. I was more than happy to see the crowns had been specially made to cover this. Teeth aside, the holiday was a bit like a comic strip at times, Barb herding me on to the elephant with her at Khao Sok National Park...then hauling me up to the tree platform to be strapped into the flying fox...bargaining with Charlie over the price of his fireworks to let off for us on the beach at the sunset dinner at Surin Beach.... Barb making sure we got the best seats at Fantasea at the lowest possible price. Giving me the confidence to fly to Bangkok on my own and organising an amazing tour for me of the Thai Burma Railway (River Kwai) which included lunch in the jungle, followed by a canoe trip and a spirtual tour of the temples the next day.
Lyn McErvale Yarrawonga VIC
The professional and medical standard is excellent. I would not hesitate to return to the Bangkok Phuket Hospital for any future treatment whether dental or cosmetic. Rae P Noosa May 2011I couldn't have asked for better service, the staff at My Body & Spirit were very helpful. The accommodation at the Novotel was beautiful. The doctors and staff were excellent and spotlessly clean, you couldn't have asked for better.
Beverley Q - Mt Coolum
Having a phobia of dentists, when I found out that I needed 2 x root canals done fairly quickly and a few major fillings I started to freak out. Then I found out about the cost in Australia. One of my friends suggested in passing the idea of Thailand for dental work. My Body & Spirit had great feedback and heaps of information on the website. Emma was prompt and thorough with information so I booked the trip. The Staff in Phuket were amazing, so efficient and friendly. They went to a lot of effort to ensure I was comfortable. He gave me time out if I started to get panicky and my teeth look great. Plus I got to recover on the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better deal!
What can I say, everything we read on the My Body and Spirit website and testimonials was exactly how it was. Emma organised everything and it all went as smooth as silk. Flights, transfers, accommodation, hospital and transfers, tours, food and the people, we couldn't fault one aspect of our entire stay over there. The hospital was very modern, the staff and the doctors were excellent and I felt relaxed and well cared for at all times. Our accommodation at the Front Village Karon Beach was just what we were after. Something a bit quieter, and we had a lovely time staying there. I can't thank Emma and Noosa Travel enough for making going to the dentist such an enjoyable experience.
Tony - Urunga NSW
Our Phuket experience was one we will remember for a long time. The markets and the tours we took while we were there was amazing and so easy to arrange. The markets were an experience all of their own, never pay the first asking price the shop owners enjoy the bartering just as much as we do. Emma made our holiday a perfect experience and kept track of everything for us.
Tracy - Ballarat
Thank-you for the seamless manner in which this trip was organised, from the flights, transfers, dental work and accommodation, all was far better than expected and less expensive than anticipated. I will book again and will recommend to friends.
Glenn B - Noosa
Our recent Dental holiday to Phuket far exceeded our expectations. The flights with strategic airlines and our accommodation at the Mercure Patong were both excellent. The dental service with transport to and from, and the helpful and informative staff with their professional manner took going to the dentist to a whole new level. Many thanks to Emma and Noosa Travel for organising this.
Jim & Kaye - Tewantin
Noosa Travel & My Body & Spirit did a great deal to facilitate a smooth trip and experience for me, taking care of all the details and making the whole experience easy. I was very happy with the dentists I had, 3 in all. Dr Supachai was very kind, competent and conscientious. I was very pleased with the work he completed on my teeth. The ground services transport to and from the hotel and hospital, was a fantastic service. They were very reliable with polite drivers and great cars, very comfortable for the half hour journey each way to the hospital. The whole dental experience was beyond my expectations in terms of customer service, quality of staff and treatment. I am very happy with the results and very glad I made the effort.
Kerri, Bli Bli QLD
I would like to thank Barbara from Noosa Travel & My Body and Spirit for organizing my recent trip to Phuket for dental treatment. After receiving advice from our family dentist on the Sunshine Coast that I would need crown/veneer treatment and was shocked with the quote for this work. It was suggested that I look at the possibility of having this done overseas similar to my husband’s friend. I searched the internet for information on where/how to approach this. To my delight, the following day I received an email from Barbara who was situated locally to me, reading those testimonials and making contact with Barbara made me instantly comfortable with the idea. Barbara explained the process, made the bookings for flights, accommodation, appointments etc with ease and professionalism. Follow up information was submitted without fuss and taken care of instantly. The treatment I received both locally with Noosa Travel and with the wonderful, caring and experienced doctors was beyond expectations. The hospital staff were extremely friendly and always had a smile to greet you that made you feel comfortable. I am so proud of my new smile and would not hesitate in encouraging others to do the same as myself. A big thank you to Noosa Travel/My Body and Spirit
Rhonda, Pelican Waters, QLD
I have had treatment in Bangkok and Phuket. It is all worth while to include a holiday and dental. Many people are afraid because of it being in a foreign country, but they are more compitent and skilled htan many of our own dentists. They all speak very good english and are very understanding.
Brian, Gold Coast
We were a little worried before we left, but found there was absolutely nothing to worry about. We had a great 3 week holiday and Rob got a new smile that we love and we saved more than $20,000 (holiday and spending money included). To top it off, the service was much better than we have ever received in Australia, and we to ride an elephant and eat beautiful food every day etc.
Rob & Di, Romsey VIC
Firstly, I just want to thank My Body & Spirit, and the Bangkok Hospital in Phuket sooo much for making this all possible. For what you pay in Thailand is so little to the prices here in Australia and the service is so much better, it was just amazing i honestly could not ask for anything more. From the moment I arrived everything was taken care of and it was such peace of mind. When I got to the hospital the staff were really welcoming and caring - from the reception to the nurses to the surgeon...it was just exceptional! I am recommending anyone who is considering surgery to go there, you will be happy you did! My surgeon, Dr Pongsakorn made me feel so at ease and answered anything I had to ask. I just can't thank them enough for all their hard work. I'm amazed, and I'd do it all again!
Rebecca, Brisbane QLD (Breast Augmentation)
I was so happy with the Doctors and how they looked after me. If anyone is thinking about it I would say go there! It's cheaper, cleaner and best of all you can't even see any scars!
Cally, Noosa (after breast augmentation)
Our original quote from the Australian dentist was $1,000's of dollars more and the work quoted far more complicated than was required. After Consultation with Emma and the Thai dentist it was determined we didn't require nearly as much work & it could be done much cheaper, faster and easier in Phuket. After having half of the work done so dar i am dying to go back to get it finished. They were GREAT. I am smiling again.
Irene R, VIC
Bangkok Phuket Hospital Phuket exceeded all of my expectations; I have never had an experience, which was so effortless and professional. Australian hospitals could definitely take a leaf out of this establishment's book. At no stage was there anything that was too much to ask of any of the staff at this hospital. The staff - from the man who greeted me at the door to the nurses in the ward made me feel so welcome and comfortable. Anyone who is thinking, this may be something they would like to do, please do it - you will not regret it. My doctor, Dr Pongsatron was a very gentle and considerate person who is a wealth of knowledge in his field. Noosa Travel/My Body and Spirit made everything work for me seemlessly and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a professional and knowledgeable team to look after a fantastic holiday like this. Thank you to Barb and her team for everything - AAA++ service.
Samantha, Sunshine Coast
To be completely honest I really didn't know what to expect of my dental work in Phuket, Thailand. The service, cleanliness and professionalism made the experience totally worth the travel. I went for a treatment recommended by an Australian dentist and received advice from my Thai dentist that both saved me time and money, advice I doubt I would receive from an Australian dentist. I have the utmost confidence in the Bangkok Hospital, Phuket as well as Dr Pangsrinont and would highly recommend both to anyone.
Karina W, Sydney
Fantastic from start to finish. Emma was great, informing me of what the Dr had to say, to asking any questions I needed answering. The Doctor was very kind and gentle and the hospital and staff were beautiful. And I'm very happy with my surgery so Thank you very very mych.
Noosa Travel provide a great service where they act as a very efficient and effective conduit between intending clients and Bangkok hospital in Phuket. Our travel & accommodation was organised very well. Emma has done a terrific job with that and the dental component.
Mal T - Noosa
The dentist and staff were great. They were very professional and experienced in the dental treatment they provided. The results definately met my expectations and I would definately recommend Dr.Supachai for anyone needing crowns - results were very pleasing! I really want to Thank you for organising the trip and dentist visits for me, I know it took alot of time to organise and I really appreciate your help. You were very helpful and I would definately recommend you as a great travel agent!! It was my first trip to Phuket and definately won't be the last - I have already told my family and friends what a wonderful place it is and I would love to make another trip there.

I was satisfied with my dental treatment in Phuket, Thailand. My friends had gone before and so I decided to take the plunge. What would have cost me $14,000... here cost me $7000 over there. I not only had a reasonably priced holiday, I had my teeth done and loved every day that I spent in Thailand. This is much better than visiting our dentists for 1 hour every week and costing us the world. My friend came with me and she also had hers done. My husband is now going over to have his done, so that should speak for itself. Noosa Travel made it easy.
January 10, 2010
I was apprehensive when a colleague suggested that I have my dental requirements attended to in Thailand. When I discovered that I could take my two teenage daughters to Phuket for two weeks (airfares, transfers, accommodation, full breakfast daily and all the required dental work included) for less than the cost of the four crowns I needed if commisssioned in Australia, I made the decision to book with Emma at Noosa Travel. The Bangkok Phuket Hospital staff were efficient, our dental appointments on time, the Dentist was thorough and fully answered any questions that we had. I am very happy with the service that was provided. My daughter who had a wisdom tooth extracted with the minimum of fuss was happy to 'recover' on the beautiful beaches of Thailand. All in all we had an excellent dental experience (if there is such a thing) and have great memories of a fantastic holiday.

Thanks so very much Barb. My trip to Thailand for cosmetic surgery exceeded my expectations. Dr Ponsakorn was amazing, so kind, caring and very professional. Bangkok Phuket Hospital was fabulous (5 star) and the hospital staff were so friendly and provided A Class care and service. All my appointments were on time and I always felt well informed. I am so happy with my breast augmentation. Dr Ponsakorn has done a fantastic job. We stayed at Hotel Ibis Kata, and the service was great, the hotel was lovely and the staff were so friendly. Kata Beach is beautiful, such an amazing spot. Thanks Barb and Noosa Travel for organising the best experience of my life.
Angela, Sunshine Coast.
I am more than pleased with the results, my friends are looking at me with strange looks on their faces, they keep saying, "What have you been up too? You look good and your eyes are really shining". Dr Piyapas was excellent, he took the time to explain everything to me, did not hurry my appointments, was always on time and made himself available if i needed to speak to him. The hospital was more like a five star resort. I was met at the door, taken to my appointments, never left alone and the staff were genuinely interested in my well being. - 'after cosmetic surgery' I went over there expecting to have three fillings as my dentist had told me i needed before i left Australia. I did have teeth i was concerned about but he said he was just going to keep an eye on. When i got to Phuket the dentist looked at the teeth i was concerned about and they were in fact very infected. I needed three root canals, five fillings and two caps, all of which i had done at almost the same cost as i was quoted for the three fillings in Australia. For the first time in years i don't have a bad taste in my mouth. I am not the best at the dentist but i managed to sit in the chair and have all this work done and it did not hurt. I did not even require pain killers when i got back to the resort and my mouth was not sore. Emma arranged this in less than two weeks and it went like clock work!

"From the moment we stepped off the plane in Phuket to the day we had to return, everything was organised. From the Tour operator, to the accommodation, transport organised for appointments. We had wonderful treatment and thoughtfullness throughout. Was so much appreciated - we want to go back next year!"

"I needed extensive dental work which I had put off for years and years. When I finally decide to do something about it, I expected the whole experience to be costly and complicated to arrange. I was thrilled with the efficient, professional and friendly service provided by My Body and Spirit and Noosa Travel from the very first email to the follow up on my return to Australia. Every aspect of my holiday, transfers, dental work and even the tours in Phuket were arranged to the last detail and I had no problems whatsoever once I got to Thailand. The hospital, dental work, nurses, staff and dentists were fantastic and first class in all respects and were equal to, if not better, than any dental work I have had in Australia. I am so happy with my dental work and my new smile - I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is thinking about going to Thailand for dental work and highly recommend My Body and Spirit and Noosa Travel to arrange the trip. Thanks Emma"
Megan M, Melbourne
I decided to go ahead with this treatment with a great deal of trepidation,unfounded as it worked out,the whole experience was very professional and painless which was a plesant surprise! For those who think there is a risk the hospital is not up to standard,my experience was that it was at least equal to but in most cases of a better standard than any hospital I have attended in Australia. The customer service and timeliness was a breath of fresh air when compared to the almost "government department" attitude we some times experience in our so called developed nation .I am planning the next phase of my treatment with full confidence over the next year or so.

"My experience of dental work in Thailand was great, completely changing my experience of dentists from ....."Oh no, not the dentist ... expensive, painful, miserable!!!!! into ......"Wow, a trip to the dentist together with Thai food, massages, gorgeous temples, elephant rides....!!"
"The package equals a new lease of womanhood for me. Having breast fed away my breasts to 4 sons, to wear a dress and have a shape means personal feelings. It still feels weird. Here I am 2 weeks later after the operation, healing after medication and travels. The travelling and resort rest with all cleaning and catering done was great. Makes for the best test. Blessed by it. Thanks"

''I thought the hospital was excellent and Dr Supachai was an extremely good dentist. His workmanship was excellent. The pick up to and from my hotel to the hospital was excellent. I would recommend anyone to use this facility in Phuket.''
''Just a quick thankyou to you and your staff in organising my trip to Thailand and subsequent cosmetic surgery at the Bangkok Phuket Hospital. I didn't know what to expect when I got there, but I needn't have worried, the nursing staff and doctors where first class and I was well taken care of in my own private room and nursing care. It has been 12 months since my surgery and I am extremely happy with the results. I now am more confident in myself and not embarrassed any more about looking old before my time. On my 60th birthday in a restaurant I told the waiter I was celebrating the "Big O" she said " I hope I look like you when I'm 50. Believe me that comment said it all. I am now looking forward to next month when I go over again to have my stomach Lipo suctioned and can't wait to see the results. Good work and thanks for the personal encouragement.''
"I am so extremely happy that I chose to go to Thailand for my breast enlargement. Five star doctors and hospital. I have never been treated so good. My doctor was Dr Pathom, and he is the best if you are thinking about breast surgery. Go to Thailand you won't regret it. Better than Australia."
''We are very happy with the dental work had done. The friendly, helpful staff at the dental hospital and the transport to and from was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the hospital, very modern, up to date equiptment and plenty of helpful staff. Nothing was to much trouble for them. Having all the appointments booked before hand made it an excellent holiday and at the same time we returned refreshed with new smiles.''

"This experience was so much more than I had hoped for! Dr Pathom was amazing and I felt cared for and safe at all times. The hospital care was outstanding. I was ferried to and from the hospital with efficiency and the ultimate concern for my welfare at all times. I highly recommend this experience and I am so pleased I did it this way."
''I am 47, never travelled or treated myself to much being a single working mum with 3 children. Going to Thailand and having my dental work done was one of the best experiences I have done for myself. My teeth look fabulous! It has changed my life, I don't even mind having my photo taken now. I spent three weeks relaxing and being pampered. It was just the healing I needed to be able to move on in life. I am now the happiest I have ever been! Thanks Noosa Travel, you've helped me to change my life.''
"I thought everything about my stay at the hospital was top quality. The staff couldn't have been more professional and kind. I went there on my own and was surrounded by friendly efficient staff who made it a lot easier. Dr Pongsakorn was really maticulous and proud of his work as he should be. Having the bags under my eyes done was an extra bonus and has taken years off my looks at such a small cost."

Hotel was great with friendly and helpful staff. Dental Clinic was also great, same as last time I went in 2007. I would not hesitate to use their services again and Noosa Travel was great with organising my dental & travel package. Thanks Barb
