Setting the Mood from Step One
Great massage, all-star treatment, and premium services—these are the elements that make up the ideal spa retreat. Simple, practical, perfect. Located in a peaceful garden of The Sukhothai Bangkok, The Spa Botanica has mastered these elements, pampering visitors with finely honed attention to detail in both service and ambiance.
The leafy pathway from the main road leads to the oasis that is Spa Botanica, hidden discreetly behind a swimming pool. The spa is surrounded by greenery, the indulgent treatments offered inside either a cosy Thai-style house or the poolside garden. As impressive as the location is, the interiors also invoke sweet nostalgia with the elegant touch of classic wooden furnishings.
You may be surprised at how many brands one spa can offer. A Vuudh infuser spreads a dreamy scent across the spa. Enhanced by quality products from leading Thai spa product brand HARNN, as well as Panpuri and UK’s top body care brand Aromatherapy Associates, the menu is made to match any personal preference, ranging from a standard relaxing massage and deep tissue massage to waxing, body wraps, scrubs, manicures, and pedicures. Highly recommended is the East West Blend (60 min/B3000 or 90 min/B3800), the spa’s signature massage. The treatment combines oriental and occidental traditions, with firm pressure employed to soothe muscular pain. Aromatic oil is used to help release tension and calm nerves.
There are exclusive packages designed for gentlemen, as well. Get a quick massage to ease away tension and tiredness, or perhaps to restore emotional and physical balance, or to soothe muscles that have taken a pounding from exercise. The Mantastic Escape (290 min/B12,000) is a particularly wonderful top-to-toe treatment for guys, including a body wrap, a scrub, a signature massage, and a facial cleansing treatment. To top it off, the package comes with a manicure and a two-course meal of healthy spa cuisine and healing herbal tea.
The lounge sells an impressive array of spa and beauty products. From facial care, body lotions and scrubs to infusers, aromatic candles, and organic tea—all ready to pick before leaving this dream world of a spa.
