The vibe: A mid-century, pastel color scheme, lush greenery, Danish furniture and contrasting concrete—all very Instagram-worthy. Add in that they use their own organic spa products and you can expect most treatments to run well into four figures.
The treatment: Try a 90-minute Thai massage during which you’re soothingly pummeled with a heated clay salt pot for B2,500 or a 120-minute upper body office syndrome massage for B2,000 (see box).
The vibe: A stylish laboratory with a raw concrete floor, mint green walls, yellow ceiling and industrial furnishings—all courtesy of a team from Chulalongkorn’s Faculty of Architecture.
The treatment: The spa programs run from head to toe (including mani-pedis) and use both Thalgo and homemade products. Relax-atherapy (B1,000/hr) is a pocket-friendly, 60-minute massage featuring home-made oil.
Sun Square, 1037/1 Silom Soi 21, 02-237-8588. Open daily 10am-10pm. BTS Surasak. www. infinityspa.com
The vibe: An airier, modernist alternative to Panpuri’s darker Gaysorn original, with white furniture and sleek marble flooring, as well as cutting-edge facilities like crystal steam rooms, saunas and “experience showers,” where relaxing acoustics blend with rejuvenating aromas.
The treatment: Prepare to pay a hefty price—the Panpuri Ultimate Indulgence treatment (foot massage, full body massage, facial, body wrap and scrub, 210 minutes) costs a whopping B9,800 and the Pan-Vimarn Heavenly Touch of Paradise (foot massage, personalized body massage, body wrap and scrub 150 minutes, 150 minutes) is B6,800.
The vibe: Shop-house prices in a colonial-luxe setting, thanks to its position in the Old Town’s Raweekalaya botuique hotel.
