It’s not often you see a spa and wish it was your apartment. Devotees of design – and a darn good pampering – will go ga-ga for Bangkok’s fabulously futuristic Infinity Spa, which looks more akin to a chic laboratory and comes in this season’s hot colour green!
Nothing like your average teak-lined, tastefully neutral Thai treatment centre, this cavernous, modish, modernist retreat boasts peppermint-green skinny steel-and-leather chairs, side tables and storage, and minty-fresh surfaces. The space feels like a raw-industrial, polished concrete boite, as if your architect friend had just ushered you into his hip, double-height loft in an old warehouse conversion.
Styling aside, this contemporary urban day spa is a good look in terms of therapies too. Head-to-toe treats include mani-pedis, facials, massages and scrubs, using marine-rich Thalgo and house-made prods. The indulgent, holistic menu spans body relaxation, facial rejuvenation and a nail bar and spa by OPI. There’s a fragrant focus on aromatherapy essential oils, including Relax (lavender and chamomile), Detox (lemongrass and pink grapefruit) and Energize (geranium and citrus fruits) options to leave your skin and soul revitalised.
Frazzled frequent flyers can’t beat the 60-minute Infinity Jetlag Facial by Thalgo, which also kicks pesky pollutants into touch. For a full, three-hour Jet Lag Package throw in a blissful Natural Body Scrub and Infinity-Aroma signature massage.
