Guests looking for a relaxing and pampering spa experience should visit Let’s Relax Spa. In this article, we will discuss the common types of spas and typical services offered in a spa, so you know what to expect.

There are plenty of spas all over Bangkok; among them is our popular Thonglor spa and massage establishment, Let’s Relax Spa. But before we delve into our spa’s offerings, let’s discuss what the two most common types of spas are.


What are the Two Main Spa Types?

Day Spas

Day spas cater to those who want a brief respite from their hectic schedules by getting a massage or spa treatment for an hour or two. In addition to traditional spa and massage treatments, day spas often offer salon services such as facials, manicures, pedicures, and even hair treatments, making them a convenient place for individuals on the go.


Benefits of Day Spas

Convenience: Day spas are typically situated in urban areas, making them easily accessible for city dwellers seeking a quick retreat from their daily hustle.

Time-efficient: For those with a tight schedule, day spas offer treatments that fit into lunch breaks or periods of time after work, allowing relaxation without taking a whole day out.

Diverse services: Most day spas provide a wide range of services, from massages and facials to hair and nail treatments, allowing clients to get multiple services in one place.

Cost-effective: Without the overhead costs of accommodations and other resort amenities, day spas often provide luxury services at a more affordable rate.

Regular visits: Their convenient locations mean clients can visit more frequently, making consistent self-care and relaxation routines more attainable.

Personalized treatment: Many day spas cultivate personal relationships with their regular clients, ensuring tailored treatments based on individual needs.


Resort and Hotel Spas

The second of the two types of spas is those located in hotels and resorts. These in-house spas are often complemented by a fitness center, with amenities such as gyms, swimming pools and saunas, and activities like fitness classes and even restaurants. Spa treatments may be included in a hotel’s multi-day packages, and some resorts offer wellness retreats, with spas being a key part of their health and relaxation programs.


Benefits of Resort Spas

Premium accommodations: Combine the relaxation of spa treatments with the luxury of staying in upscale accommodations.
Scenic locations: Often in picturesque locations like mountainsides or beachfronts, these spas offer an escape from daily life.

Comprehensive packages: Resort and hotel spas often offer packages that combine accommodation, spa treatments, dining, and other activities, providing a comprehensive experience.

Extended retreat: Unlike the brief visits to day spas, resort and hotel spas allow for prolonged relaxation over days, making them ideal for vacations or extended weekends.

Diverse amenities: Beyond the spa, these resorts often have nearby fitness centers, gourmet dining options, pools, and recreational activities.

In summary, day spas are perfect for brief and convenient relaxation sessions, while resort and hotel spas provide a more comprehensive wellness experience in scenic settings. The choice between them primarily depends on what one is looking for – a rejuvenating respite or an extended retreat.
