Your Guide to Wellness Centers in Bangkok
This Bangkok Day Spa Guide takes you to some of the best spa and wellness centers in the city, where the main focus concentrates on self-indulgent pampering, explicitly designed to restore well-being and personal vitality.
Come and experience an innovative and traditional Thai-style spa compress using a detoxifying salt from high up in the Himalayan mountains. Himalayan salt, as you may already be aware is rich in minerals and negative ions which fine-tunes your body and mind as well as it helps in purifying the air.
The spa package offered here begins with a Thai Yoga massage followed by the Himalayan salt compress. It should release any tension you might have. After that, you’ll receive a relaxing Himalayan Crystal Facial. This 150-minute spa treatment is designed in such a way to give you a complete holistic body massage from tip to toe. It’s an indulgence you won’t want to miss.
The Oriental Spa ~ 4.5 Stars
The Oriental Spa (map) has a superb reputation for being one of the best spas in Bangkok. It’s on the opposite bank of the Chao Phraya River from the Oriental Hotel on 48 Oriental Avenue. This traditional Thai teak building is the ideal place to pamper yourself with any number of beauty treatments. The spa is an oasis of calm that combines ancient Asian healing philosophies with modern Western techniques. Spoil yourself with a floral mask facial, a refreshing seaweed remedy, a papaya body polish, or a special jet-lag massage.
The Devarana Spa ~ 4 Stars +
The Devarana Spa ( map )located at the Dusit Thani Hotel in the city center is a real tranquil oasis. It’s one of Bangkok’s most stylish and evocative health havens due to its natural flowing light, vibrant colors, and still, sparkling water pond set amidst an expansive reception area. All the treatment rooms provide a serene Zen ambiance coupled with the creature comforts of beauty and privacy, perfect for a relaxing and soothing massage.
The Oasis Spa ( (multiple locations) ~ 4.5 – 4.7 Stars
The Oasis Spa is a day spa nestled amidst an immense garden setting which assists in creating an aura of calmness. There’s a real possibility you’ll hear the sound of birds tweeting and twittering in the trees outside your room while your treatment is in progress.
This spa provides an array of beauty services, one of which includes the “Oasis Four Hands Massage” in which two masseurs work in unison. Another is the “King of Oasis” which is Thai and aromatherapy massage combined with hot compresses.
Banyan Tree Spa ~ 4 Stars +
Banyan Tree Spa ( map )is located on the 39th floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel and is so named after a tropical and sacred tree found in South East Asia.

The care you receive here is based on a traditional eastern and holistic healing approach. The natural herbs and spices used in many of the treatments include body scrubs, seaweed masks, hydrotherapy, and a wide variety of massage techniques.
Chi, The Spa at the Shangri-La Hotel ~ 4.2 Stars
Chi, The Spa at the Shangri-La Hotel ( map )is created around a Tibetan Temple design with a tranquil setting described as a sanctuary for the senses. The world-class spa’s focus is to restore chi, a traditional Chinese philosophical term that refers to the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality.
The nine spacious treatment suites and two specialty CHI suites are complemented with sweeping river views. They’re also equipped with infinity baths, herbal steam showers as well as being accompanied by relaxation and dressing areas. Specialists in Chinese and Thai beauty treatments are on offer.

This large facility here has twenty treatment rooms, two hydrotherapy suites with Jacuzzis and saunas, an exclusive suite for couples, a beauty treatment room, a fitness room, and a snack bar. This day spa is a sanctuary for the senses where you can relax with a hot stone massage, a mud body mask, or a face firming treatment.
Let’s Relax (multiple locations) ~ 4 Stars +
Let’s Relax day spa and wellness center in Bangkok is not the only treatment venue of its kind in Thailand. They have several branches around the country. And I have personally been to a few of them. If you make a booking at their office in Pattaya, they will happily send their driver over to collect you from your hotel and also arrange your return trip after your session. Their service is impeccable. It’s the perfect balance for your body and soul.
The treatments on offer at all the high-end five-star hotels in Bangkok are vastly different in that they, not only create a sanctuary of tranquillity but also present a much more comprehensive range of specialized beauty services.
