Comfortable and contemporary eco-friendly luxury resort and spa
For visitors seeking a luxury resort style accommodation option in Sukhothai, the grand Sukhothai Treasure Resort & Spa ticks all the right boxes.
Opened in 2010, the property is located just a five-minute drive from the famed historical park. The grounds of the resort are large, with a pair of 2-storey wings built facing the gardens and swimming pool, and a separate 2-storey wing—known as the Treasure Eco—overlooking the mountains and neighbouring rice fields. The 110 rooms are all modern and serviceable, with amenities such as flatscreen TV, air conditioning, mini-fridge, in-room Wi-Fi, and outdoor access in the form of a ground floor terrace, or balcony on the 2nd floor units. Room types include Eco, Superior, Deluxe, and a pair of stately 92 sq.m Treasure Suites which include a Jacuzzi bathtub and a separate living area with sofa, chair, and coffee table.
The resort’s recreational amenities include an indoor fitness room, and an outdoor swimming pool with a spacious deck where guests can relax on one of many wooden sun loungers. The pool is quite large—a full 25 metres in length—and boasts a Jacuzzi portion as well.
Close to the pool is the resort’s Red Lotus Spa, where visitors can unwind with treatments that include Thai massage, aromatherapy massage, body scrubs, and facials. This is one of only a handful of accredited spas in the area, with trained staff and professional level treatment rooms (three in total). Try the 80-minute Mind Relaxing Massage for an aromatherapy treatment that combines Swedish massage with elements of Asian therapeutic techniques. To begin, customers choose from a selection of three scented oils—eucalyptus, Thai flower, or the signature red lotus—after which the masseuse begins the process of easing away tension and stress, while soothing music plays in the background.
The resort also offers two F&B outlets, the larger of which is the Pink Lotus Restaurant. This split-level, spacious indoor dining area is where the delicious daily breakfast buffet is served—from 6am till 10am—after which the restaurant remains closed for the day, reopening again from 5pm till 11pm. During the evening hours the à la carte dinner menu offers a wide assortment of tasty Thai and international menu items. Signature dishes include: the Sukhothai Treasure pineapple, cashew, and shrimp fried rice, topped with an omlette and served with a yummy spicy pork salad; the BBQ river prawns served with a chunky fruit salad; and the highly recommended smoked duck breast steak with orange sauce, served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.
The resort’s second dining spot is the appropriately named Wine Bar. This bistro-style venue has a large selection of international wines available by the bottle—only the house red and house white are available by the glass—but the menu also offers frothy cappuccinos, refreshing iced lattes, and everything coffee-related in-between. With a choice of indoor and outdoor seating it’s a nice place to relax, enjoy a drink and/or a snack, and plan out your sightseeing agenda.
