High above the noisy, crowded hubbub of Bangkok’s Ratchaprasong district there exists an unlikely oasis, a hidden retreat from the considerable stresses of the bustling Thai capital.
While guests at thecan enjoy all the luxuries typical of a five-star hotel, it is the Erawan’s i.sawan residential spa and club which truly sets it apart. After all, what other hotel can boast a rooftop spa village suspended five storeys above the fast-beating heart of a 14 million-strong megacity?
The Grand Hyatt Erawan’s spa village is as enticing as it is unlikely. Comprising five individual cottages clustered around a secluded courtyard, i.sawan represents the pinnacle of inner-city pampering, although it’s all too easy to forget your urban location. Each spa cottage is served by a designated concierge, and their setting amidst lush greenery is more akin to a Balinese retreat than hectic central Bangkok.
Covering 100sqm and also featuring a separate living room, private patio and yoga facilities, these exclusive residences are designed with the spa’s acclaimed treatments firmly in mind. Each cottage features a fully-equipped massage room where weary travellers can enjoy each day’s complimentary one-hour massage in total privacy. Guests can also select from an extensive treatment menu that includes facial treatments, body wraps, body envelopments, body scrubs and revitalising bath remedies.
The spa cottages are also the perfect choice for visitors wishing to combine relaxation with Bangkok’s typically high-octane pursuits. The hotel is a mere stone’s throw from popular shopping destinations suchas Siam Paragon, and is conveniently situated for those wishing to enjoy Bangkok’s restaurants and nightlife. Before embarking on an evening of revelry, spa cottage guests can also enjoy complimentary cocktails in the hotel’s club lounge, which commands spectacular views of the city skyline and the Royal Bangkok Sports Club.
At theyou really can have your metaphorical cake and eat it. The i.sawan spa cottages offer a unique rooftop retreat where you can combine the thrills of a city break with the rejuvenative benefits of an island getaway, unwinding and de-stressing while the rat race continues below.
