Man’s Spa Treatment at Spa Botanica, The Sukhothai Hotel

Luxury Treatments for Men and Women

The Sukhothai Hotel is famed as an oasis of absolute calm in the middle of Bangkok, with lush green lawns and gentle bird song. This feeling is amplified as you step into the grounds of Spa Botanica, with gentle lapping water and a manicured garden providing a sense of instant relaxation. In fact, everything at Spa Botanica has been designed with the guests’ experience in mind. It is housed in a quaint house in the leafy grounds of The Sukhothai Hotel and offers a complete range of signature treatments to both men and women. The garden setting, gentle music and Jim Thompson silks are designed to appeal to every sense, as are the premium Panpuri and Aromatherapy Associates scents and oils.

A visit to a spa is usually the domain of women, but why shouldn’t men get in on the action? Massage in Thailand has been used for centuries as a preventative activity for many physical and mental problems so it makes sense to relieve the tension, and a little bit of luxury never hurt anyone, did it? Out of seven therapy rooms, four of them are designed for two guests to enjoy their spa together so if you are flying solo or out with your loved one, Spa Botanica has a treatment to suit. Their signature treatments include the Sukhothai signature massage (4,500 baht ++) which focuses on energy meridians and gentle stretching to relax and invigorate and a Jasmine Purifying Ritual that softens and hydrates skin.


The Spa for Men treatments were developed and specifically created to suit a gentleman’s needs. The staff at Spa Botanica are extremely professional and are on hand to offer advice on which treatment is right for you, and before you begin there is a short questionnaire to fill out so you will have an experience uniquely tailored to your needs. I decided to go for the De-Stress combination which is a 45 minute body salt scrub followed by a deep tissue healing massage for 75 glorious minutes. The two hour treatment costs 5,600 baht ++ and there is also a healing fruit and herb drink at the end, which you can choose from a set menu. I am introduced to my masseuse who is a small lady who I think might lack the power to really work my muscles. However, a few minutes into my scrub I am well aware that she could work with even the tightest of knots. The salt scrub is a mixture of sea salt and peppermint essential oil which is applied liberally and scrubed in thoroughly to leave my skin smoother than I ever remember.

After that it is into the oversized shower to remove the scrub before the massage begins. Oils scented with lemongrass and black pepper are used for my massage, which help hands and elbows to glide along my muscles and release tension without any discomfort like is sometimes felt during traditional Thai massage. Throughout the massage, I am asked to lie on my front, back and sitting cross-legged for a hot towel to be placed on my shoulders and neck. With the calming music, complemented by bird song from the trees outside, I was lost in complete relaxation so it was a surprise when essence of mint was placed under my nose to wake me up. When you reach a certain level of relaxation, your body becomes responsive to sounds and smells much more readily. After showering and dressing I sat down with my pineapple, lime, ginger and rosemary drink to help flush out the toxins unlocked by my treatment feeling as calm as a bright blue sky.

Spa Botanica at The Sukhothai Hotel is located on Sathorn Road, close to the busy financial district in the centre of town.
