Oasis Spa at Sukhumvit 31
Situated in the charismatic streets of Sukhumvit 31 and only thirty minutes away from the airport, Oasis Spa will freshen you up after a long airborne journey. To address our post-flight stress, we tried the signature spa treatment called The Voyage of Golden Lanna, a 90-minute massage that provides instant relaxation as it takes music therapy to a higher level. Conducted in a secluded room with waterfalls, a fancy, private outdoor shower and an ambience that coaxes your body into calmness and tranquility, the treatment is a delightful four-handed dance of twenty skilled fingers choreographed to a mentally revitalizing symphony.
