Claiming the 12th Floor of Chateau de Bangkok, Jouvence Wellness and Spa offers a range of treatments and activities to restore mind, body, and soul. The floor is divided into segments: half of the space is taken up by the spa, and the remaining is separated into a gym and a rooftop pool bar with Jacuzzi tubs. Before and after treatments and workouts, re-connect with free Wi-Fi and soak up the splendid view of Ploenchit. Yoga classes and personal trainers are available for both hotel guests and club members, too.
The spa boasts five different rooms with private showers, and the packages are as diverse as Thailand’s flora, from healing therapy to beauty treatments using premium products from Dermalogica. All spa packages are customizable. Choose three treatments from three categories — the signature Jouvence Asian Gateway massage, body scrubs or wraps, and facial treatments — and away you go.
By itself, Jouvence Asian Gateway costs B1800 for 90 minutes and B2200 for two hours. It starts with a traditional Thai massage, the therapist using her palm, fingers, and elbows to relieve tension. The masseuse also lightly layers your body with Jouvence’s signature aromatic oil, which gives off a relaxing, mild jasmine scent. After muscles are stretched and joints are loosened, the masseuse runs a heated herbal ball over your back to relieve muscle pain and improve blood flow.
After a long day, few things sound better than settling into a Jacuzzi. So hop into the sea of fluffy foam for thirty minutes. Once in the tub (tread carefully: it’s pretty slippery), aromatic foam builds on the surface and disco lights underneath twinkle to the rhythm of the warm jets. Thirty minute sprees in the Aroma Bath, Lavender Balancing Bath, and Milk Bath are available for B600 apiece. Other services include manicures, pedicures, waxing, and facial treatments.
Jouvence Wellness and Spa offers a variety of activities for all types — the weary, the stressed, the indulgent, the barely-contained energetic. It’s especially nice for families, who want to spend the weekend under one roof, but have to cater to a lot of personalities.
