Asia itself is a veritable treasure trove of relaxing getaway destinations, but Bangkok is unrivalled when it comes to massages and spa treatments. If you’re looking for a way to unwind over a long weekend, look no further! Here are our top picks for wellness spas to visit in Bangkok.
Asia Herb Association has several outlets throughout Thailand, and offer comprehensive spa services minus the usual exorbitant price tags. Choose from their menu of a la carte and package treatments such as their Herbal Aroma Oil Body Massage (900 THB) and Perfect For Body package (2,340 THB), and prepare to let yourself be pampered like royalty. In order to avoid disappointment, call the branch you plan on visiting and make an appointment early!
Located the 8th floor of the Amari Watergate, just across the street from the well-known Platinum Fashion Mall, Breeze Spa is the perfect choice to conclude a long day spent sightseeing or shopping in Bangkok. Although on the pricier side, treatments ranging from full-body massages to post-sunburn care ensure that you’ll be spoiled for choice.
3. Health Land
A premier chain of spa service providers, Heath Land is popular with locals and foreigners alike, so reserving an appointment in advance is a must. While the interior of Health Land outlets are decorated in a way reminiscent of a luxurious spa escape, their services are priced very reasonably: for example, a two-hour long traditional Thai massage will only set you back 550 THB.
While the treatments offered at the branches of Let’s Relax Spa may be pricier at 600 THB for an hour of Thai massage and 450 THB for 45 minutes of foot reflexology, the spa’s location and ambience are ideal for those who seek a quieter and cleaner experience. The treatments offered at this spa are known to be particularly relaxing, and are best for those who have a low pain tolerance, or those who prefer gentler treatments.
Located within Hansar Hotel Bangkok, the Luxsa Spa promises to be a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life. With an extensive menu of wellness treatments to choose from, you can choose to unwind on your own or with your family (since Luxsa Spa offers children’s massages as well). The treatments offered do not come cheap, though, so only visit if you intend to indulge.
The Land of Smiles just also happens to great for unwinding and letting go of all that pent-up stress. If you find yourself heading in that direction anytime soon, be sure to take full advantage of all the wellness options Bangkok has to offer!
