The Thai spa brand unveil a cafe that's a white-washed, botanical haven.
Nineteenth-century botanical gardens inspired this cleansing, plant-life-filled spa dripping with colonial charm. Guests can pick from full-body massages or a healthy meal at the on-site cafe. The menu sees bruschetta topped with everything from peaches to avocado, alongside lighter veggie dishes like the roast carrots with garlic sauce. Even the Tropical Sunrise pudding is a guilt-free blend of yogurt, chia seeds and granola.
Thai spa brand Organika have taken over the top two stories above D'Ark in Sukhumvit Soi 49's Piman 49 complex and transformed the space into a white-washed, botanical haven.
One floor is dedicated to a spa (stay tuned for more on that), while the top-floor cafe features health-focused food created by Chalee Kader (of Surface, The Beer Bridge and Knock), including the hearty chicken garden salad (chicken breast, avocado, poached egg, tomato, beetroot and subtle Indian curry powder, B400) and backyard garden carrot salad (with wild arugula and aioli, B320).
Sweeter options range from the organic chia yogurt pudding (with fresh fruits, walnuts and granola, B280) to the crepe Suzette (with tangerine and passion fruit, B320) or apple crumble on strudel crust (B220).
The brand also play around with scents in its own tea blends, whose names resemble those of spa products, like Memoirs of Sunrise (dried apple, roselle, lemongrass, dried orange and dried peach, B295/pot). High tea sets are served all day with housemade scones, Danish and sweets at B1,250 for two people or B2,750 with Chandon Brut.
