The Peninsula Bangkok

THAI-COLONIAL ELEGANCE

With a wave-shaped design inspired by its riverfront location, The Peninsula Bangkok draws an international guest list that looks forward to Bangkok’s iconic views from every room. A distinctive architectural statement that adds to the city’s renowned skyline, wellness enthusiasts enjoy a tranquil respite within the hallowed walls of The Peninsula Spa. Your spa experience begins as soon as you step into the entrance with its dramatic water feature. Swap your cares for spa robes and take a symbolic journey riverside to a three-story Thai-colonial sanctuary that blends unique cultural appreciation with Thai and European wellness philosophies.

Known throughout the luxury hotel industry for its level of expertize, all you need to do is book the appointment and The Peninsula’s therapists will recommend the most suitable treatment. As the aesthetic world around you transforms from modern to classic through a series of subtle changes in design and décor, prepare to be seduced by The Peninsula’s finely crafted attention to detail consciously created to deliver the ultimate indulgence. From the state-of-the-art treatment and relaxation beds with individual iPod access to the outdoor pools and stylish Asian Tea Lounge, your personalized wellness journey is in nurturing and skillful hands.

Every aspect of The Peninsula Spa inspires supreme confidence in the powers and dedication of the legendary brand. From the detailed recording of medical history, to the tea ceremony and on to the inner sanctum of the treatment room, the staff demonstrates their devotion to your personal journey of enlightenment. Nestled among lush gardens, the spa is a full service oasis in the heart of the city. The 1,800-square-meter haven of relaxation features 14 treatment rooms as well as four luxurious suites that offer spacious steam showers, en suite Jacuzzi and double treatment areas overlooking stunning views of the Chao Phraya River.

Sip an indigenous blend of herbal tea in the Asian Tea Lounge during your initial consultation. Allow The Peninsula’s team to custom-design a whole or half-day journey of sensual enlightenment with a combination of treatments and cuisine from their Naturally Peninsula menu. Each experience commences with a Fresh Ginger Foot Buff treatment and The Peninsula Tea Ceremony. For the ultimate indulgence, treat yourself to the full-day Bangkok Retreat. Beginning with a unique and powerful Thai Yoga Massage to restore clarity, balance and flexibility, this ancient form of massage has been handed down through the ages. It incorporates elements of mindfulness, gentle rocking, deep yogic stretching, breathing and rhythmic compressions. In a meditative manner using thumb, palm, forearm and foot pressure, your skilled therapist will stretch and manipulate pressure points and meridians to balance the flow of energy within the body, elongating the muscles and releasing deep-seated tension.

Once your body has been kneaded into submission, get ready to glow as the 80-minute Skin Brightener Age-Defyer Facial has been especially created to help combat the signs of aging, and skin damaged by the sun. Otherwise known as a Super Active Facial, your therapist will conduct an in-depth skin analysis under a Woods lamp to identify skin conditions not visible to the naked eye. Special facial massage techniques using products rich in anti-oxidants help hydrate and protect your skin with particular focus on the delicate area around the eyes, neck and lips that are prone to fine lines. The anti-aging benefits visibly improve the appearance of your skin, helping to minimize lines and wrinkles, leaving skin fresh, replenished and nourished, the perfect precedent to a night out on the town.

All full-day spa experiences include use of the triple-tiered 88-meter outdoor swimming pool set in gardens along the banks of the river. Swim in the turquoise water, or lounge on a sun bed in the shade of one of the 12 traditional Thai steep-roofed poolside pavilions. Your gourmet lunch features the Naturally Peninsula light and healthy cuisine with ingredients straight from the Chef’s garden. A cornerstone of the Peninsula Wellness program designed to boost body, mind and spirit, the inspirational cuisine of Naturally Peninsula invokes and involves all of your five senses, including the sight of delicious dishes, the crunchy sound of fresh vegetables and the aroma of spices and herbs.

Not to mention the inner satisfaction after eating healthily and, most importantly, the taste sensation created specifically by The Peninsula’s culinary team to support your wellness goals. Available in the hotel’s restaurants as well as in the privacy of your suite, Naturally Peninsula’s cuisine reflects local ingredients and is supervised by The Peninsula’s Guest Nutrition Advisor who assesses each dish for its nutritional content. If they measure up to the Advisor’s high standards, dishes end up in the wildly popular series of Naturally Peninsula cookbooks, written for guests to continue living The Peninsula experience once back home.

To further enhance your at-home Peninsula lifestyle, Simply Peninsula is a spa product line created exclusively for The Peninsula Spa. Custom designed to complement the spa’s Peninsula Ceremonies menu offerings, the Simply Peninsula range enables you to continue your sensory adventure beyond the hotel stay with a luxurious collection of bath and body care products uniquely reflecting a fusion of Asian, Ayurvedic and European philosophies and traditions, culminating in a range that is as sensuous and therapeutic as it is efficacious. Thanks to Simply Peninsula, The Peninsula lifestyle will never be more than a bubble bath away.
