Nestled in a garden on 5th floor of the Grand Hyatt Erawan, i.sawan offers a pause from the pace of the big city. As guests ease into this sanctuary, where beauty, wellness, and residential retreats are the rule, the beautiful chaos of the Erawan shrine and Rama I Road stir below. On this level is an array of facilities, including a fitness centre, swimming pool, beauty salon, spa, and even private villas and spa cottages for those in search of a memorable stay separate from the strictures of a city hotel.
The spa treatments provide bespoke pampering experiences divided into four categories: Purity, Energy, Harmony, and Thai. Guests choose according to the result they wish to pursue, whether to detoxify, boost inner energy and skin, reduce stress, balance the body and mind, or promote total well-being through the art of Thai massage. To elevate the treatments, the spa imports premium products from brands such as June Jacobs and Comfort Zone, which leave skin looking radiant long after the therapy.
Highly recommended is the signature “Essence of i.sawan” massage. It combines aromatherapy with Swedish and Thai massage to work out stress caused by long days at work, long flights, or even long games of pick-up football. The treatment begins with a foot scrub; then it’s the core massage. The therapist performs a medley of Swedish and Thai pressure techniques along the body’s meridians, which are pathways through which energy flows. The mild scent of warm oil refreshes the mind as the therapist works out kinks in muscles. Want to try it, but in a time crunch? No worries. This treatment comes in a variety of options — 60 min/B3200, 90 min/B4200, and 120 min/B4800 — a nice amenity for those on tight schedules.
Men receive special treatment, too, with “Recommended for Him” packages. A standout is the “Bangkok Executive” massage (30 min/B1800). It targets specific areas to quickly relieve stress.
Other packages include “Hot Stone Zen Massage” (90 min/B3900, 120 min/B4500), which helps to melt away muscle stiffness, and “Urban Detox” (60 min/B2900, 90 min/B3900, 120 min/B4500), which gets rid of the body’s toxins while treating tired muscles and mental exhaustion.
