An exotic spa escape in Bangkok

7 Treatment Rooms

Hidden away on the second floor of Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, Anantara Spa is a getaway within a getaway offering immediate relaxation from a day spent in the busy Thai city and buzzy hotel.

It’s located a hop away from the swimming pool and fitness facilities and features a traditional Thai design. The space is filled with the heavenly scents of exotic massage oils; settle in with a relaxing ginger tea in the waiting area before a therapist guides you to one of the five lavish treatment rooms, all with showers and some with a private Roman-style tub and steam room.

The extensive menu of services incorporates Thai wellness traditions, various ancient Asian therapies and Western-style treatments, too. And while you’ll no doubt adore the sumptuous spa suites, you can also take a massage in your hotel guest room or surrounded by a tropical garden poolside.

The Treatments

With long menu of massage therapies, revitalizing and purifying body scrubs and wraps, nourishing facials and blissful steams and baths, you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to choose exactly how you’ll relax. Therapists recommend beginning a spa experience with a bath ritual (select between healing moor mud or milky Oriental ginger), or a steam ritual incorporating either Thai herbs or aromatic floral essences — both will set you up for indulgent next treatment by preparing your mind and body for relaxation.

Massage treatments are aplenty. Opt for a more familiar Western-style service like the Elemis aroma stone massage, which uses warm volcanic stones, or the Siam 2482 massage. This signature treatment is exclusive to the Bangkok spa, and it incorporates a range of Chinese and Southeast Asian healing traditions. It starts with a bamboo stick massage to stimulate circulation, which is then followed by a healing herbal compress, an herbal oil massage and foot reflexology. It ends with the application of gold-leaf patches that aim to promote quietness of the mind.

The four different indulgent Spa Journeys feature tempting combinations of massages, facials, body brushing and nail services. Want to go all out? Book Escape Beyond Serenity, which lasts more than five hours and includes a steam ritual, a detoxifying green tea scrub, a bath, an aromatherapy stone massage, a moisturizing facial, a nail therapy of your choice and nourishment in the way of healthy spa cuisine. It is a serious indulgence that you won't regret.

The Amenities

Take advantage of the spa’s proximity to the hotel’s 24-hour health club and Olympic-size pool, where you can sunbathe surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, a waterfall and lotus ponds. Other wellness options include a squash court, a yoga studio and spinning classes.

If you do decide to venture outside the cocoon of the hotel grounds, there's plenty to entertain you — the shopping malls of Siam and Chidlom and the famous Erawan Shrine are just minutes away by foot, and the hotel also offers excursions to popular tourist attractions, including the Grand Palace, temples and floating markets.
