Thailand is one of the world’s wellness capitals. For centuries, this captivating kingdom has perfected the art of physical and spiritual wellbeing, including herbal medicines, healthy cuisine and of course, traditional Thai massage.
In 21st Century Bangkok however, it can sometimes be difficult to find peace and tranquillity. This vibrant city bustles with life, day and night. Fortunately, one downtown hotel is giving guests the opportunity to step back, relax and rejuvenate their bodies and minds.
Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort is a low-rise urban resort nestled among 1.2 acres of tropical gardens, shaded by centuries-old trees. This gives it a wonderfully soothing and secluded ambience. And yet, it is also positioned in the heart of the bustling Sukhumvit district, putting Bangkok’s biggest retail malls, attractions and embassies within easy reach.
Guests can enjoy a full range of five-star facilities, which focus on health and fitness. For example, the 294 spacious rooms and suites (ranging from the 42-square metre Deluxe Rooms to the 164-square metre Royal Suite) come equipped with yoga mats, exercise equipment, sleep therapy speakers and a fitness channel on the in-room Smart TV. Each room also features a spa-inspired bathroom with a separate tub, a large balcony or terrace and a choice of 10 pillow types, and an Executive Lounge is available for guests staying in the six different types of suite.
During the day, guests can cool off in the large outdoor pool or work out 24 hours a day in the high-tech fitness centre, which features cutting-edge DAVID equipment. Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort is also located adjacent to the BDMS Wellness Clinic, a leading preventative healthcare centre. Operated by Bangkok Dusit Medical Services, this world-class clinic provides a wide range of personalised treatments, including sports science, digestive wellness, dental services, fertility solutions and more.
Naturally, the focus on wellbeing extends to the hotel’s F&B outlets, which include Tamarind, an elegant all-day dining destination, and Khum Hom, an innovative Thai restaurant, both of which specialise in using local, seasonal and organic ingredients. Khum Hom is overseen by celebrated Thai chef Ian Kittichai, whose Issaya Siamese Club was named as one of “Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants”. Rim Klong Café serves light meals, drinks and daytime snacks overlooking the Saen Saeb canal, and Cinnamon, the lobby lounge, is a chic setting to unwind in the evening. Diners can still treat themselves however; the famous Mövenpick Chocolate Hour promises a daily selection of handmade truffles and treats with no added sugar.
This focus on holistic health makes Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort an outstanding option for all types of wellness breaks. From short weekend retreats to extended medical tourism vacations, guests can choose the perfect type of getaway to suit their lifestyle, while also having the city’s top attractions right on their doorstep.
