The Siam Journey: Thai Massage Workshop at The Peninsula Bangkok
February 18, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin
The Peninsula BangkokThe best digs in Bangkok? Try The Peninsula, the stunning riverside hotel that's a fixture on "World's Best" lists. Every one of its sprawling guest rooms and suites offers sweeping views over the city. There's a three-tiered swimming pool, destination restaurants, top-notch Peninsula Spa by ESPA and fitness center-- all attended by doting staff. And here's something else that distinguishes The Peninsula Bangkok: a new program with The Peninsula Academy called "The Siam Journey." The Peninsula Academy Programs were created to give guests a personalized introduction to key aspects of local culture, lifestyle, cuisine, arts, and history– through individualized classes, tours, and activities in each Peninsula location. This particular program was designed to share the Thai heritage of wellness with guests, enabling them to take the experience home and practice it in their daily lives.

Start off with The Peninsula Tea Ceremony paired with a relaxing foot ritual. Then learn the history and practice of Thai massage in a special workshop, providing insights into the unique herbs used in Thai treatments. After this learning experience, guests are treated to a 1-hour and 20-minute Thai massage described thusly: "the therapist’s skilled hands, elbows and feet are used to massage pressure points to open the body’s flow of energy, elongate the muscles and release deep-seated tension." The journey concludes with traditional Thai snacks to savor, and guests receive a Siam Journey Wellness Gift. Taking place in a Spa Suite, the half-day program begins at 9:30 am and is priced at THB 5,000 per person.
