We design the ontology of health tourism data in Hua Hin and Cha-am. We focus on the health tourism where one of the popular kinds is the spa service. International SPA Association (ISPA) has divided spa services into six kinds : club spa, day spa, destination spa, medical spa, mineral springs spa and resort/hotel spa.
In our prototype area, namely, Hua-Hin, there are four kinds. In this work we design the ontology focused on these four categories.
• Hotel and resort spa: a spa located within a resort or hotel providing wellness components.
• Destination spa: a facility with the main purpose is guided individual spa-goers to develop their healthy habits.
• Day spa: a spa offers to clients a variety of professionally administered spa services on a day-use basis.
• Medical spa: a spa poses an on-site source of natural mineral, thermal or
seawater used in hydrotherapy treatments.
