An hour and 20-minute drive north from Bangkok to the tree-shaded rural district of Bang Sai leads you to a luxurious resort and wellness retreat. Spanning 10 acres of lush landscape, the resort boasts architectural design with discreet ancient Ayutthaya influences. Situated in Thailand's old capital, Ayutthaya, Thann Wellness Destination offers a complete wellness experience for a healthy body, mind and spirit.
The resort boasts a total of 46 special guest rooms ranging from suites to pool villas, all set in a tranquil location on the banks of the Noi River, surrounded by lush rice fields. A nod to the rich history of the district, the rooms carry discreet Ayutthaya influences in the form of artworks, statues and motifs that decorate the walls. In addition, Thann botanical-based skincare and aromatherapy products can be found in all the rooms while complimentary mini-bars are stocked with healthy drinks such as fruit juices and fruit-infused water, in glass bottles to promote sustainability.
As its name suggests, promoting healthy living and well-being is the main focus at Thann Wellness Destination. The 1,500 sqm spa complex has 15 treatment rooms with two double aroma rooms, nine single aroma rooms, two double Thai massage rooms and two single Thai massage rooms, aromatherapy baths, an aromatherapy steam room, three all-purpose studios, and a fitness centre. Here, the treatments are performed by certified professionals and therapists with extensive knowledge on anatomy, aromatherapy and massage techniques. The aromatherapy baths (in three different temperatures: 25°C, 30°C, and 39°C) help soothe tired muscles and improve blood circulation. The wellness activities available at the centre include yoga sessions, aromatherapy workshops and even Muay Thai classes.
Dining at Thann Wellness Destination is lavish and sophisticated. Guests can choose from the three dining concepts: a river restaurant, a modern-oriental café and a casual street food eatery – with each offering different, nutritious menus with carefully curated natural flavours. Many of the ingredients are sourced from local community markets as well as the resort's residue-free farm and garden – especially the fruits, vegetables, river prawn and fishes, and free-range eggs and chicken.
Enjoy a multi-course meal that is meticulously prepared to deliver the best Thai culinary experience in an opulent setting at the Riverfront Restaurant, or international dishes where an Asian antique collection of tableware and cooking utensils is displayed at the Tea Room. One can also enjoy a walk through the Thai Street Foods – a food hall that offers a vast array of Thai street food and snacks such as pounded papaya, grilled meat skewers with sticky rice and Thai noodles, just to name a few.
The Thann Wellness Destination promises a peaceful, restful and rejuvenating experience for burnt-out travellers yearning to get away from the hustle and bustle. "Here at Thann Wellness Destination, we want to create the most relaxing experience and stress-free lifestyle for our visitors. Guests do not have to worry about what to wear, eat or activities to enjoy at the resort because everything is well-prepared for them," says Tony Suppattranont, founder of Thann Wellness Destination.
