The Sweet Science of Relaxation
At Seasons Spa on the 7th floor of the Conrad Bangkok Hotel, the 11 exclusive treatment rooms are prepped for pleasure. Each provides a private changing room as well as a shower area that incorporates its own sauna. The presidential suite, the crème de la crème of the choices, even has a Jacuzzi. With amenities like these, it is easy to see why the spa remains such a preferred urban retreat. Factor in the various selections on the menu, such as east-meets-west massages, body scrubs, refreshing facial treatments, and an array of detoxifying packages, and a spa-lover might never want to leave.
To ensure that the treatments and products satisfy particular needs, patrons are asked to supply information concerning their general health, including allergies or medical issues, and to lay out clearly what they are looking for: relaxation, stress relief, or body balancing. The rest falls into the hands of seasoned experts. The Real Aromatherapy Experience (B3500/90min) aims to melt away stress and tension through a blend of Swedish massage and Thai acupressure, using aromatherapy traditions from the West to calm the mind. This being intended for relaxation, the therapist presses gently on muscles, rubbing along the length of the body to promote blood flow and lymphatic circulation.
There is no need to worry if time is limited. The spa’s on-the-fly de-stress collection features treatments that take just 30 minutes. Guests can also indulge in various pampering packages, including Intensive Muscle Release (B3500/90min), Rose Hydrating Cocoon (B2800/60min), and a choice of three treatments in the Bath Collection (B1800/45min each). To elevate the experience, Seasons Spa uses only premium scented oils and products, imported from Aromatherapy Associates in London.
When all is done and dusted, guests are casually escorted to a lounge, where they are treated to herbal drinks and light cookies. It is the finishing touch, the last bit of comfort to make sure everyone leaves with a healthy body and happy mind.
