Annika Sofia Bjorka appointed spa director of Clinique La Prairie’s Asian flagship in Bangkok
By Megan Whitby 15 Feb 2021
Annika Sofia Bjorka will lead spa operations at Clinique La Prairie Aesthetics & Medical Spa
Annika Sofia Bjorka has been appointed spa director at Clinique La Prairie’s first facility outside of Europe – Clinique La Prairie Aesthetics & Medical Spa at the St. Regis Bangkok.

The new 1,500sq m medi-spa in Thailand exclusively provides cellular skincare treatments from Swiss Perfection.

The facility is spread across two floors and includes 16 treatment rooms, a hammam, rain showers, Thai herbal steamrooms and a twilight rasul, as well as vitality pools, foot reflexology water walks and relaxation pods.

With over 14 years’ experience in luxury hospitality and spa, Bjorka has worked in a host of spa leadership roles and has previously worked for Anantara, Per Aquum and Steiner.

Her new role will have her oversee a team of medical spa professionals and specialists with expert knowledge of contemporary science and advanced technology to ensure bespoke experiences, tailor-made programmes promoting longevity and beauty with a results-driven focus.

“The addition of Annika to the team at Clinique La Prairie Bangkok is invaluable,” said Zoe Wall, group director of spa at MSpa International – managing company of Clinique La Prairie Bangkok.

“I have full confidence she’ll run Clinique La Prairie Bangkok with an unsurpassed passion and understanding of the world-class facilities and technology.”

A Swedish national with a proven track record in beauty and spa, Bjorka is a graduate of SHMS, Leysin, Switzerland and holds a diploma in hotel management.

“To front the opening of Clinique La Prairie Bangkok is a true privilege,” she said, “my goal is to help guests re-shift their focus and achieve a holistic approach to health and wellness.

“We’re aiming to help our guests transform themselves from the inside out so they can lead a happier, healthier and better life.”
