Kashikiri 49 Soda Onsen
If the idea of stripping off in front of strangers to soak away the stresses of daily life leaves you feeling the exact opposite of serene, then perhaps public bathing isn’t for you. But never fear, dear, as the Big Mango has come up with just the modesty-preserving solution – the newest edition of Kashikiri 49 Soda Onsen.

Upping the ante of the original Udom Suk location, the second and bigger branch of this paean to that most Japanese of ablutions – the onsen – has found a home in the heart of the action on Sukhumvit Soi 49.

Yet despite its proximity to sceney sip, sup and shop spots, this spa offers sanctuary by the hinoki bucket-load. Artfully designed to resemble a traditional Nippon bathhouse with imported ofuro tubs and special salts, Kashikiri 49 presents seven private tanks, including four for couples, and four additional massage rooms.

Body and mind cleansing options combine satisfyingly soothing steeps with a sigh-worthy selection of trad Thai massages and indulgent Jurlique facial treatments. How about the signature Onsen and Scrub option, offering 45 minutes of immersion followed by a rejuvenating body scrub and hot aroma oil massage? Don’t mind if we do. Ohhh-nsen.
