Hot List 2008

Spa Botanica, Bangkok

Tel: 662-2344-8888

Frog sounds and abundant foliage mask the urban realities of the very central Bangkok location of this sleek, modern, seven-suite spa surrounded by tropical gardens. Teak and stone interiors show off the elegant Jim Thompson silks while successfully creating the appropriate ambience of relaxation. Daily tea such as lemongrass or bell fruit cools stressed-out sorts from within. A gentle body cleanse made from watercress milk kicks off the Five Elements Cleanse and Purifying Ritual ($222), a bespoke program that combines Tibetan and Chinese healing practices, including a soft-clay wrap and a soak in a Japanese cedar tub for two (massages, $95).
