Recessed from all the activity around Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Peninsula Bangkok’s 88-meter pool, The Peninsula Spa Bangkok stands alone in a three-story, colonial-style Thai house and offers an extensive menu of Western, Asian and ayurvedic massages, as well as anti-aging facials and other beauty treatments.

Visits to The Peninsula Spa Bangkok begin with a reception at the tea lounge, a cup of herbal tea and an initial consultation, followed by a beautiful walk down a wooden corridor to the 14 treatment rooms and four private suites for couples and groups. The traditional Thai décor touches are balanced by contemporary equipment and natural products created by ESPA.

While the classic Thai and Swedish massages are popular, the Bangkok spa’s ayurvedic options are a rare treat in Bangkok. Try the ama-releasing abhyanga, which begins with a salt and oil body scrub, followed by a facial and a shower. After an ayurvedic marma massage, the treatment concludes with the iconic shirodhara, where oil is poured over the scalp to the third eye.
