Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok
LOCATED alongside the Chao Phraya River far away from the city din, the Oriental Spa is housed in a classical Thai-style 4-storey building made from golden teak wood. Each of the 10 private rooms promises relaxation and renewal upon entering their doors. The Oriental Spa is the first spa to open within a hotel property in Bangkok. Since its opening debut in 1993, the award-winning Spa has been widely recognized as a pioneer in the Thai spa industry. It was named the first Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Recommended spa in the Kingdom and has maintained this award for 4 consecutive years since 2015.
The year 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the Oriental Spa. To commemorate this a new menu has been launched that features the “Essence of Thailand” treatments – “Spirit of Isaan” and “Lanna Ceremony”. They draw upon ancient traditional Thai techniques from the North and Northeast regions to deliver comprehensive 2.5 hour treatments for discerning guests who want to experience the most out of the country’s rich traditions.
Mandarin Oriental’s signature spa therapies have been devised to address guests’ increasing desire for simple, effective and authentic spa experiences. Every treatment begins with a private therapist consultation to determine each individual’s personal and current state of wellbeing. The treatment and oils are then tailored to each guest in order to leave the body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony. Guests can unwind after each treatment in our relaxation lounge and are also provided with nutritional and exercise guidance, to extend the beneficial effects of the program at home.

“Tok sen” draws inspiration from northern Thai culture, and reveals the hidden treasures of Chiang Mai’s beauty rituals. The ceremony begins with a herbal foot bath infused with fresh miang, a popular healing herb from this part of the country. Then, a luxurious herbal bath prepares the body for the Oriental body scrub. The ceremony continues with a body wrap using fang, another local ingredient, to awaken and refresh the skin. A Lanna massage finishes this experience. The body is tapped rhythmically with a stick made from the bark of a tamarind tree. This relaxes the muscles in preparation for a warm herbal oil massage and warm herbal compresses for the feet.
