A serene Bangkok oasis
10 Treatment Rooms
A luxury hideaway from the buzz of city life, COMO Metropolitan Bangkok is just minutes away from the capital’s main business district and trendy nightlife, yet its position in quiet green surroundings tucked away from the main South Sathorn Road underlines its commitment to providing soothing calm to frazzled guests.
But forget what’s outside — once you enter this modern stylish hotel and see its tranquil Como Shambhala Urban Escape at COMO Metropolitan Bangkok and generous 20-meter swimming pool, you won’t want to leave.
As well as hosting the sleek, high-end Urban Escape spa, the second-floor wellness center includes an impressively equipped gym and newly refurbished changing facilities, steam room, Jacuzzis, yoga studio and a separate elevator that will quickly whisk you down to the ground-level 20-meter outdoor swimming pool.
Let the simple minimalist surroundings, peaceful ambience and soft infusion of Asian massage oil scents envelop you, and the stress of the outside world will melt away as you begin your spa journey.
COMO’s carefully thought-out spa menu of massages, cleanses and facials focuses on balancing and connecting the mind, body and spirit through unlocking energy, relieving tension and eventually guiding you to a state of deep calm and relaxation.
The signature Como Shambhala Massage (75 minutes) is a great place to start, with warm blended oils providing a gently nurturing but rejuvenating experience.
Or try a classic Thai Herbal Treatment (120 minutes), which uses so-called “passive yoga stretching” combined with oils and warm Thai herbs to detoxify and release energy flow, ending with a delicious juice. The Como Shambhala Detoxifying Skin Treatment (60 minutes) stimulates circulation with an exfoliating salt and sugar body scrub and moisturising application that will plump up tired skin.
If cleansing and detoxifying are what your body craves, book a Cleanse Programme, like the Spa Body Cleanse, a 120-minute body-care service that’s rounded off with a nourishing juice and healthy organic meal.
For a real treat, go for a day package combining the best of the therapies on offer — our pick is the 210-minute Invigorating Journey that includes a sensuous steam bath, body polishing treatment, your choice of body massage, a light and moisturising facial with scalp massage, followed by a simple peel and facial massage. The indulgence includes a two-course lunch and juice, and ends with a revitalising tea and small snack.
The Other Treats
For further wellness, hotel guests can enjoy complimentary tai chi, yoga or Pilates class each day.
Also, be sure to make use of the free shuttle bus service to the Skytrain station that will quickly connect you to the rest of the sprawling city’s famous attractions and seemingly endless choice of shopping malls.
