Among Thai luxury spa brands Harnn is one of the most popular names, renowned both domestically and internationally. The Harnn Heritage Spa Krungthep, which recently opened at CentralWorld, tempts spa goers with a handful of pampering packages that utilize an array of premium botanical products. The spa’s location, meanwhile, is as premium as the ingredients, as this urban oasis is hidden up on the 12M floor of the prestigious Zen Tower—high enough to separate one from the general chaos of the busy Pathumwan area below.
The spa is a bit complicated to find, but it’s worth the journey. The reception room is simply decorated with elegant wooden furniture and four comfy couches set by the glass wall which offers panoramic views overlooking the downtown core. Within the spa itself there are twelve treatment rooms, including a room for two, all with in-room showers.
The treatments listed in the menu are designed to provide the best therapy for your health, so the selection is not excessively varied, but it’s enough to choose what best will enhance your physical and mental health. Seven of the massage therapies are inspired by the practice of traditional Asian medicine and naturopathy, focusing on restoring natural balance of body and mind.
The Ploenchit Therapy (B2,000/60min, B2,800/90min, B3,000/120min) is a combination of traditional Thai massage and aromatherapy. Firm pressure, along with stretching technique, is applied throughout the body to ease muscle tension. In addition, aromatic essential oil is used during the massage to achieve a more relaxing result. For another skin benefit, Harnn natural Vitamin-E rich bran massage oil is chosen to boost inner radiance, and to nourish and moisturize your skin.
Essential oils from the signature collection are blended with botanical ingredients in appropriate proportions for balance enhancement. Essentialoil blends are well suited to scented massage oil, bath waters, or interior diffusers—all of which, in turn, aid in everything from reducing stress and anxiety, to helping uplift, refresh, and invigorate your spirit.
For the deepest relaxation, three holistic packages are available in carefully customized combinations to allow your body and soul to experience true rejuvenation. Each 180-minute package offers different body massages, one with added herbal streaming, one with added deep tissue massage, and one with an herbal tea bath.
