Packaged to Perfection
Situated in the verdant gardens of Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Anantara Spa ticks all the boxes when it comes to transporting guests on a journey of luxurious pampering. According to Elizabeth Dass-Brown, spa enthusiast and Director of Marketing Communications at the resort, here the goal is not simply to ease tired muscles through physical massage, rather it is to promote a much broader sense of wellbeing.
The journey begins as you approach the spa facilities on a path that meanders through the resort’s exotic gardens, the vibe subtly switching from urban jungle to peaceful rainforest with every step. Centered on two finely appointed suits with large bathtubs and private outdoor areas where massage can be enjoyed, the complex also has seven deluxe treatment rooms. These tranquil interiors, featuring predominantly contemporary Thai décor dominated by earth tones, further engender a sense of relaxation.
An extensive list of treatment packages awaits, with options covering health and beauty therapies or a combination of both. The various massages focus on restoring physical balance and harmony by easing knotted muscles and stimulating blood flow along the meridian lines. Also known as acupressure corridors, the meridians are pathways through which energy flows around the body.
Prior to core massage, many of the treatments – which use imported premium blend Elemis spa products – begin with a soothing foot scrub and milk bath. Particularly recommended is the exceptional Anantara Signature Massage (90 min/B3900). It combines bodywork using a special formula hot oil for deep muscle relaxation and meridian flow with stomach-focused detox massage designed to boost digestion and clear toxins from your system. The treatment ends with a soothing head massage. Other blissful packages worth considering include Journey of Siam (190 min/B5500), Stress Release Massage (90 min/B3500), and River Stone Back Massage (60 min/B4000). Poolside and in-room spa treatments are also available.
