I COULDN'T have it any other way. To end an 8-day adventure through the paths less taken around Bangkok and the shoreline and hills of Hua Hin with a visit to one of the Big Mango’s best kept wellness secrets is pure bliss.
While spas are heavenly destinations, Borisud Pure Spa built like one just like it. The interior designed stayed true to the Mode Sathorn’s signature look of contemporary and chic design.
Borisud Pure Spa is bathed in white injected with very minimal yet very functional appointments making the look successful in exuding tranquility and sterility, which is expected of wellness centers like this.
The staff was welcoming and very knowledgeable about their products and services. Although I was pre-booked for the spa’s signature massage—the “Pure to Swift Massage”, a combination of traditional Thai Massage and the classic Swedish Techniques using purely natural blended oils— they gladly replied to my queries about the spa’s offerings, which includes a wide range of body massages, body scrubs, body wraps and facial treatments, all designed to best fit the requirements of the clients.
The spa does not only present a menu of the most up-to-date treatments, it is also equipped with state-of-the art facilities like infrared sauna, Jacuzzi, steam bath or chill shower.
“What about the men?” I asked. She smiled and said, “We have a facial, Face for Him, specifically created for men. It’s ideal for deep cleansing and cell renewal leaving your skin looking supremely fresh and feeling supple. The treatments we use are all created from natural products free from chemicals.”
Made for men is the 120-minute massage therapy called “Masculine Indulgence.“ Especially for gentlemen who want to look and feel their best: a Fresh & Purifying Scrub followed by a Muscle Melt Massage and a replenishing refreshment.
“Or perhaps you can compose your own spa journey the way you like it,” she added, “Simply select choices of Body Scrub, Body Massage and Facial Treatment. The complete retreat will take 210 minutes.”
After the pleasant chat and profiling, a third person entered the reception area and was introduced as my therapist. “She is your guide to your pleasant and relaxing journey to wellness.”
The private room I was lead to was all in white and pleasantly scented. After the footbath and laying my tired body on the firm massage bed, everything else was a blur.
I was told that the best compliment a therapist can receive was “I fell asleep and awoke refreshed.” It only meant the treatment was executed well. That was what transpired. The 120-minute journey was pampering at its best.
Borisud Pure Spa is heaven, a magic area for fine spa therapies and treatments.
Borisud Pure Spa is at the 11th floor of Mode Sathorn Hotel is at 144 North Sathorn Road, Silom, Bangrak. Bangkok.
