Suited to a Tee
It isn’t just technique that factors into a positive spa experience, but also tailored touch, carefully devised temptation for all five senses. At Anantara Spa, ancient wellness rituals from across Asia, complemented by advanced Western techniques and ready-and-waiting staff, do just that.
The spa itself is nestled amongst a fully-equipped, 24-hour fitness centre and an infinity pool with a sun deck. Before stepping into treatment rooms—which are designed in a contemporary Asian style and dominated by amber and dark wood décor—guests consult with experts on standby to determine the most effective treatment to match their personal needs. You might feel like getting a deep tissue massage before you arrive, but after a brief chat with said expert, you may find a treatment more conducive to the problems that ail you.
The signature Stress Release Massage (B1800/60min) offers an hour of deep relaxation, blending methods that pamper the five senses within one package, starting with a foot scrub and milk bath and followed by a core body massage. Masseuses use products exclusively made for Anantara Spa, and, for facials, they use products from Elemis, the UK’s leading skincare brand. For this treatment, Anantara’s own aromatic oil is used; combined with acupressure techniques, the oils enhance the degree of relaxation felt throughout the process. The massage is performed firmly along the body, from head to toe, easing muscles and promoting overall well-being, while instrumental music played in the background provides a calming element all through the hour.
Also available in the signature collection is the exquisite Journey of Siam (B2900/135min), a package that includes a floral foot bath, a trip to the steam room, a body scrub, and a Thai herbal compress (the herbal ball, in other words). The Elemis Skin Specific Facials are offered in three packages (B3000++/60min for each package), each with a different result: Elemis Fruit Active Glow, Elemis Exotic Moisture Dew, and Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair. But don’t worry about deciding now. Put your faith in the capable hands at Anantara Spa to help you hone your choices.
