With travel discouraged, locals can instead book themselves a wellness retreat at the months-old Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, the hospitality brand’s second outpost in the buzzing Thai capital. Branded as the city’s next big wellness destination, the hotel has debuted a 25-meter saltwater infinity pool, alongside brand-new facilities at its signature spa, Sindhorn Wellness by Resense.
Located within the newly developed Sindhorn Village in the upscale Langsuan neighbourhood and just steps away from the verdant Lumphini Park, the hotel is designed to blend seamlessly into the eclectic tropical garden and serene pathways surrounding the property. Aside from immersing themselves in nature, travelers can expect to be welcomed by a soaring lobby illuminated by natural daylight, soundproof roofs, as well as dedicated wellness programmes.
The 26-room spa is the highlight of any visit, now with new additions like a Hammam (Turkish bath), a glass-fronted sauna, a micro-salt inhalation room, as well as a tepidarium featuring infrared-heated loungers. Guests can enjoy an Arabian-inspired treatment at the special Rasul room, which combines the health-boosting benefits of heat, mud, and steam; or indulge in a Dermalux facial. Other facilities worth checking out include the boutique fitness, yoga, and Pilates studios. which offer classes throughout the week. Locals who’re big on wellness can also subscribe to memberships at the spa, which includes gym and fitness studio access. Popular classes include spinning sessions in the virtual studio and Tai Chi in the gardens.
Emma Darby, COO of Resense, said: “We all seek to live longer, look younger and feel fitter. Our range of advanced treatments and specifically selected technologies will empower our international and local guests to achieve their goals.”
Aside from feeling rejuvenated, spa-goers can also expect to be well nourished at the hotel’s dining establishments. For afternoon tea and light bites, there’s The Lobby Lounge with its elegant and ultramodern setting. Meanwhile, all-day restaurant Flourish serves hearty Thai and Asian cuisine, as well as European and Middle Eastern fare. Nestled inside Flourish is Loukjaan by Saneh Jaan, an offshoot of the Michelin-starred Thai restaurant Saneh Jaan, which prides itself on royal heirloom recipes recreated with locally farm ingredients. For a cocktail or two, head to the European-inspired Firefly Bar and admire the Thai fine art pieces displayed there while you’re at it.
Guests can spend the night in one of the 274 rooms and suites, including the Grand Deluxe rooms, said to be the largest in the city at 66 square meters. The room category also features floor-to-ceiling windows and private balcony seating. A blissful night’s rest is ensured thanks to double walls that minimise noise pollution and pre-cooled air from the roof level, which supplies every room with extra oxygen.
