Available for the day or overnight, these suites take the concept of in-room treatments to a whole other level. At over 1,000 square feet each, the bathroom takes up half of the footprint, with a treatment room, soaker tub, rain shower slash steam room, and separate scrub table. There is a living room, bedroom, and private outdoor terrace as well. Out front, you are secluded but steps away from the main pool deck. We loved the idea of hiding out here for a weekend, having the luxury of the spa – which has won countless awards for its treatments, including a dedicated range for gentlemen – coming to you rather than the other way around.
The interior of the spa suites has been designed by Tony Chi, who is also overseeing the revamp of all other guestrooms and suites. The mix of clean, white sheets on the bed with the stripey carpet and dark wood of the cabinets worked really well in the Deluxe King Room we saw. We liked the intricate patterned tiles in the bathroom and the Thai accessories throughout. Phase two, which aside from the remaining guestrooms will also work over the Grand Club Lounge, should be complete by end of October.
A renovated Deluxe King room starts at THB6,600 (about $210) a night on a weekend mid-August, but special offers are available if you are willing to prepay. A Spa Cottage starts at THB21,900 (about $700).
