What better way to ease of the stresses of daily living than to treat yourself to a full-blown spa treatment?
Feeling run-down and uptight, I was recently delighted to have the chance to experience a rejuvenation session at W Bangkok Hotel’s lovely Away Spa.
The pampering experience begins from the moment you arrive at the spa’s luxurious confines. I was greeted by charming staff and put at ease as I perused the treatment offerings. Unfortunately, because I on my own, I couldn’t take advantage of the “Couples 2 Hours Alone Time” package, which is offered at a very reasonable price of B 9000++.
However, it occurred to me that this would make a perfect surprise anniversary gift for married couples or friends of a romantic nature. In addition to the massage treatments, the package includes a soak in a large bath tub with a glass or two of sparkling wine, something guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.
For my treatment I chose the “Glowing Delight” package, which is based on a body scrub and wrap and constitutes 60 minutes of pampered bliss. As the therapy progressed I began to feel lighter, if that’s possible, and by the end my skin was certainly much smoother and blessed with a sensual radiance – the ‘glow’ that we women talk about. I can highly recommend this treatment to anyone looking for a quick stress reliever. It had great results for just B 1990++.
But what is a spa retreat without a full manicure and pedicure, and of course a facial? At Away Spa the “Beauty or Blink” package offers a huge selection of nail colors from Leighton Denny (UK), rated top ten in Harpers Bazaar Magazine. These are exclusive to W Bangkok in Thailand and I was, frankly, spoilt for choice. With my happy feet and fingers done, I moved on to the 45 minute Away Mini Facial, which uses top-of-the-line products from Espa Skincare. This is a quick fix with excellent results and I felt like a million dollars when it was done. The Beauty or Blink Package is available at a comfortable B 2990++.
I left Away Spa at W Bangkok Hotel feeling beautiful and refreshed and couldn’t wait to tell my friends about the experience I’d had. I highly recommend this spa to anyone. And rest assured I’ll be back.
