The traditional trimmings of the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit are echoed throughout the decor at its signature spa, with teakwood furnishings and the soft scent of jasmine flowers. It has the effect of immediately relaxing anyone showing up for a treatment. Even before heading into the low-lit rooms, the soothing wave has already taken hold.
Of course, the traditional Thai massage (B3180 for 90 minutes) takes it to the next level, with the focus initially on the lower back and then the shoulders, before the deep, kneading strokes spread to the legs and arms. It’s remarkable how effectively tension can be worked out from the thighs and calves – the longer the muscle, the more energising treatment to these areas can be.
That said, there are unlikely to be any complaints about the targeted neck and head massage that is so relaxing it will make your eyes roll back. It’s a perfect way to finish a treatment, creating the feeling of being soothed and invigorated all at once.
Other inviting treatments include the 90-minute healing stone massage (B4240). If you’ve never tried one of these, the sensation really is quite unique and is definitely worth experiencing at least once. If you’ve done some hard miles travelling or simply by working too hard, go for the Grande realignment massage (B4470) to get everything back in order. Or, at the top end of the scale, sign up for five skinlifting facial treatments (B20,600).
