Tired and sore from a long day of sightseeing or shopping? Looking for a place to get a bit of pampering? We hear you. Here is a list of the best spas in Bangkok. Take your pick, from the luxurious high-end to the good value, and let those healing hands work their magic.
MYTH MASSAGE STUDIO
28/3 Soi Ruam Rudee, Ploenchit
Open from 10 AM to 10 PM, this relaxing oasis located in the Ploenchit area is a far cry from the stereotype Bangkok massage parlor that’s cramped in a long line of massage parlors filled with girls hanging outside, hawking massages. Housed in a warm, red brick house, the massage parlor offers options that range from 200 to 2,500THB, which can last from 30 to 180 minutes. You also have the option of choosing organic oils which will cost you a 50THB surcharge which is well worth it if you have sensitive skin. To get here, hop on the BTS Skytrain and get off at Ploenchit Station. Your short walk from the station will be well-rewarded.
THE SIAM KEMPINSKI SPA
Rama I Road 991/9, Pathum Wan
This is the place to go if you have money left over after your shopping trip around Saigon Paragon – a lot of money. This is one of the most luxurious spas in Bangkok. Here, you literally get the golden treatment with the opulent decor and private bath that comes with every room. You will also get the best pampering as all the therapists here have at least 10 years of experience in their field. Open from 10 AM to 10 PM, book yourself a treat if it is within your budget.
THE ORIENTAL SPA
Mandarin Oriental Bangkok
Located opposite the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok on the other side of the river, you will be taken to this beautiful teak house by a river shuttle. As you step into the spa, you will immediately feel like royalty as barefooted staff in sarongs offer you your drink and the pampering options, from the usual massages and facials to a Moroccan clay treatment. And, if your jaw dropped at reception, you might faint when you see your gorgeous private massage room complete with its own steam room, jacuzzi, and shower. Open from 9 AM to 10 PM, hop on the BTS Skytrain and get off at Saphan Taksin Station.
YUNOMORI ONSEN AND SPA
120/5 Sukhumvit 26 Alley, Khwaeng Khlong Tan, Khet Khlong Toei Bangkok
Perhaps the road to wellness is the fusion of two oriental arts of healing in the form of a Japanese spa combined with Thai massage. Here, you have the option to have a soak in its mineral-rich bath from a flat all-day rate of 450BAHT or add some treatments after, from a facial contouring massage to a body massage and scrub, that come in packages from 990THB to 3,090THB. You can also opt for ala carte where the treatments range from 450THB to 3,990THB. With longer hours than other spas, 9 AM to midnight, fitting some spa time in your travel schedule should be easy. To get here, hop on the BTS Skytrain and get off Phrom Phong Station. Added bonus, there is a Japanese restaurant on-site giving you the full Japanese experience of pampering and dining in Bangkok.
74 Sukhumvit 26 Alley, Khwaeng Khlong Tan, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
A bit of Thai, a bit of Indian, a bit of Chinese, a bit of Japanese, the unique Bamboo massage technique will give your muscles the relaxation and rejuvenation it needs after a long day of walking. This beautifully-decorated lives up to its name as its entrance is made up of bamboo from the wall to the ceiling. Walking distance from Phrom Phrong BTS station, the spa is open until midnight, making it an accessible venue for a bit of relaxation after a full day of sightseeing.
