A relaxed urban retreat, set along on of the busiest waterways in the world, no two worlds could be further apart and yet right next to each other. The Peninsula Bangkok is one of the city’s landmarks of luxury and the relaxing hotel spa is one of the heights of Thai wellness experiences.
Bangkok in particular is the land of amazing spa treatments. Here even at small establishments for next to nothing you can find great massages, but the quality and skilled hands at Peninsula Spa is light years beyond.
The Spa stands alone in a colonial era building near the hotel’s pool and outdoor garden area. It has a charm to it that immediately sets the mood. Treatment rooms come in all shapes and sized from suites with balconies to smaller portioned areas, but inside all is lavish and state of the art. There are massage beds, whirlpools, changing and relaxing areas as well as personal steam rooms. The staff encourage you to come early to relax and take advantage of these amities.
As with all great spas Peninsula Bangkok takes its products, oils, creams and treatment lotions from an world recognized brand, in this case it uses ESPA products. The scents range almost every tropical fruit and aroma worthy herb you can imagine and are tailored to the theme or goal of the treatment, revitalization, relaxation, destress, whatever is sought in this palace of opulence.
The prices vary because treatments range from hour long rituals to upwards of almost four hours. The prices are very good in comparison with worldwide prices for a hotel of this caliber and being in a world class city. A typical 90 minute treatment averages around 150 USD which is pricey by Thai standards, but truly excellent for the exclusivity of this area.
Some of the noteworthy treatments we recommend are Coco Siam which leaves skin and muscles feeling relaxed and renewed. The essential mind if you want to clear your swirling, stressed brain and just embrace the inner peace that comes from a rested spirit. The royal Thai massage is always a favorite and an indulgence in local lure as you get to experience the most splendid techniques reserved for and developed by Thai royalty across the ages.
