Wellness Tips

The secret behind the original Thai Massage is that it is performed on the floor, lying on a floor mat or mattress. And as oil is not used, you do not need to be undressed.

You can enjoy a Thai massage practically everywhere, from the streets of the capital to the Spa centres of some of the best wellness hotels & resorts in the world!

Energizing retreats like full-body aromatic oil massage, salt peeling and luxury spa facilities like pools and steam baths with herbal infusions are some of the relaxing activities Bangkok offers.

Bangkok is among the best destination for relaxation and spa breaks. Can you think of anything more original than a Thai massage from a Thai therapist in Thailand?
