The Thai-based, high-end spa brand Pañpuri has gained international recognition over the past few decades, not only for its spa facilities but also for its exceptional line of organic products. In Bangkok the recently renovated Pañpuri Organic Spa at Gaysorn offers luxurious treatments that will pamper you from head to toe. The products used for each massage and health treatment have a particular focus on blending traditional Thai herbs and Eastern ingredients, and steer clear of using such chemical additives as paraben, aluminum, phthalates and silicone. The five updated treatment rooms offer contemporary interior design, with wood and marble accentuation, and there’s also a room for couples complete with an in-room steam shower where you can enjoy a memorable spa experience with your special someone.
The massage menu covers a selection of the best traditional Southeast Asian techniques, including stretching, acupressure, aromatherapy and hot stone treatments. Every one of the results-driven facials and body treatments are specifically tailored to each guest’s needs. The Mali Moonlight Soothing Massage (B2100/60 min, B2600/90 min) is one of the most recommended. The combination of stretching and acupressure technique will leave you in a state of absolute relaxation. A foot scrub and foot massage is performed before the core massage begins. Visitors will then be escorted to an electrically-heated bed, where the warmth is adjusted to perfection. Next, soothing jasmine oil is applied to your skin, after which the experienced masseur starts stretching your tired muscles—from your back to your shoulders, and down through your arms and legs. Skillful hands and a firm pressure ease out tension from your core, while the negative energy is released. The pampering hour ends with a soothing neck and head massage.
Afterwards, while sipping a cup of herbal tea and munching on a piece of fresh papaya, guests are informed that leaving the massage oil on the skin overnight is highly recommended for the most effective results. It’s also worth noting that an extensive line of premium Pañpuri spa and skincare products are available to purchase at the souvenir corner beside the reception counter.
