Thai beauty rituals, ‘lost remedies’: Rosewood Bangkok’s spa occupies entire sixth floor
POSTED 05 Apr 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Rosewood Bangkok has opened in the heart of the city’s prime central business and retail district. As the 27th property in the growing global network for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, the hotel is the brand’s second destination in Thailand; it features the brand’s ‘A Sense of Place’ philosophy, with a design that honours Thai culture while celebrating the cutting-edge creativity and contemporary design ethos of the dynamic capital.

The silhouette of the 30-storey standalone property includes two graceful, connected structures that have been combined to create a new icon for the capital. The building’s form is inspired by the 'wai' – the Thai gesture of hands pressed together in greeting – and is itself an expression of the Thai capital’s growing influence as a design, fashion and creative hub in the region.

The hotel includes the brand’s Sense, A Rosewood Spa, which occupies the entire sixth floor and offers a bespoke approach to personal wellbeing, drawing from the long heritage of Thailand’s healing culture.

Treatments revive ancient Thai beauty rituals and “lost remedies,” paired with the latest innovations from skincare lines EviDenS de Beauté and Maison Caulières. The spa includes three single and two double treatment rooms.

An indoor-outdoor saltwater lap pool create a zen-like sense of a tropical destination in the heart of the city, and the hotel’s interior waterfall produces a soothing ambient sound that replaces city noise, while a vertical garden wall is further enhanced with surrounding foliage, and a whirlpool overlooks the cityscape beyond.

The hotel features 159 bedrooms, including 34 suites and studios, as well as three signature “houses” which also boast their own private pools and terraces.

The team of Kohn Pederson Fox, with Tandem Architects as the executive architect and Celia Chu Design Associates for interior design, designed the hotel as a contemporary urban manor within the context of both Bangkok’s heritage and leading-edge, creative style.

The hotel has been designed to mirror the intimacy of the private home of a well-traveled Thai family, and guest accommodations are enriched by books, art, accessories and personal touches seemingly collected by the family over the course of their travels.

The feel of an urban resort and a modern Thai aesthetic are delivered by tropical accents of rich woods and rattan-inspired patterns, weaves and panels, and pops of turquoise blue and emerald green against a calming backdrop of white, cream, brown and gold colour tones.

The design and architecture of Rosewood Bangkok has allowed the creation of unique rooms and suites throughout the entire property, with no two floors sharing the same configuration. Allowing for maximum flexibility, privacy and intimacy, floorplates range from one to a maximum of 12 rooms per floor, and the property also showcases a number of bespoke signature suites, studios and houses, which boast private meditation areas, terraces, outdoor plunge pools as special amenities.

Water features within the hotel – including a dramatic, indoor 10-story waterfall – are a tribute to Bangkok, a city built on water. The element of water – sacred in Thai culture, featuring in rites and rituals to symbolise peace and harmony – is a pervasive theme throughout the hotel.

The hotel also showcases works of established and emerging Thai artists including significant pieces by Preecha Thaothong, named Thailand's National Artist of the Year 2009; Pinaree Sanpitak, one of the country’s most respected female artists of her generation; and Torlarp Larpjaroensook, whose work both challenges and intrigues. The hotel’s “Art Connection” quarterly rotating exhibit features the multi-media works of emerging Thai artists, launching with a showcase of oil paintings by Kittaya Poolsawatdi.

“Rosewood Bangkok exemplifies a perfect marriage of destination and Rosewood’s core
concept of a modern ultra-luxury hotel experience,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are thrilled for travellers and residents to experience the warmth of Thai hospitality and the dynamism and beauty of its culture within such a fresh, exciting and radiant retreat.”
