SO THAI SPA | Bangkok’s Best Spa Packages


Bangkok is wild and it should be! But how to relax after all that fun?

After the long nights partying, days hitting the malls and Thailand’s incredible tourist sites, it’s time for some real relaxation. This is where So Thai Spa and their signature package treatments come in. Who doesn’t want to be pampered for 4 hours straight?

It’s the perfect remedy after experiencing Bangkok’s infamous traffic, the humidity, and the city’s non-stop pace. So Thai Spa has two ideally-located branches and everything you need to wind down, including mind-meltingly indulgent packages at extremely affordable prices.

Why We Love It:

  • Incredible value, especially on the long 4 and 5-hour packages
  • Quality treatment using only the best Thai products and ingredient
  • Impeccable service and wide range of treatments

Sukhumvit Branch



There are two So Thai Spa locations in Bangkok: one in Surawong and one in Sukhumvit. The Surawong branch is the most conveniently located for gay visitors, since it is located 20-minutes’ walk from the Silom gayborhood and the heart of Bangkok’s gay nightlife. Chong Nonsi BTS station is just a 10-minute walk away or 15-minutes’ to Sala Deng BTS station.

The Sukhumvit branch is set in a traditional Thai house, 20 minutes from the heart of Sukhumvit at Asok BTS station. This is an area filled with hotels, hostels, restaurants, and the ever popular Terminal 21 shopping mall.


Both locations offer a wide range of decadent treatments, all using exclusive Thai products. Some of the more popular options include the foot massage and the aroma oil massage, for which visitors can choose between a range of traditional, evocative scents, with the Thai classic herbs of lemongrass, jasmine, and rice. Traditional Thai massage, Swedish massage, hot stone massage, and four hands massage are also all available, among others. Scrubs are also very popular, and leave your skin feeling silky-soft.

So Thai Spa also offers several unique treatments, such as the Jet Lag massage, designed to alleviate the symptoms of long-haul flights, or the East Meets West massage, which takes the best from various techniques from around the world.



So Thai Spa specialize in long, supremely indulgent packages. These can last up to 4 or 5 hours, and usually include a combination of body scrub, body massage, foot massage, scalp massage, and facial, as well as other unique touches like a compression treatment.

Their most luxurious 5-hour package costs 6,600 THB for a couple (4,400 THB for an individual), which amounts to just over $200 for two people – an absolutely unbeatable price for the amount of pampering you are getting. The most popular treatment is the SO THAI LUXURY, a 4-hour package consisting of a foot massage, gold body scrub, aroma oil massage, herbal ball or spa facial, and head massage – just 5,600 THB ($180) for a couple.

Of course, several shorter 2-hour packages are available. The most basic, consisting of a foot massage and a Thai traditional massage, costs just 1,400 THB ($45 USD), making it an accessible luxury for even the most cash-strapped of budget travellers. As seen above, several packages have a reduced price per person if you book as a couple.



The Surawong branch is based in a modern, recently renovated building, with decor that blends traditional Thai elements with a contemporary feel. It has six large treatment rooms, each with their own private bathroom and shower and all suitable for couples’ treatments.

The Sukhumvit branch is slightly larger, with a more traditional Thai design and seven treatment rooms. It also has a lovely small swimming pool surrounded by greenery, which you can relax in during hot days. This branch is more popular with families – as the treatment rooms can accommodate up to three people, it is a great place for parents to get treatments with their kids.


Both branches offer exceptional service, with attentive and welcoming staff, all of whom speak good English. From the second you enter to the moment you leave, you will be treated with every care and attention. Lovely touches like complimentary bael fruit tea help to make the experience even more special.

Chat to the team and ask your questions, the So Thai Spa are so incredibly responsive on social media, it’s very easy to book treatments. Just reach out to them via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp for super fast replys. Due to the spas’ popularity, it is best if you reserve your treatment at least 24 hours in advance.

Show Prices



    This resort is located in Mae Nam, one of the most peaceful areas in Koh Samui. This small village sits in the north of the island, and has a mix of upmarket hotels like Belmond Napasai and backpacker hostels. It’s a beautiful and laid-back place, but there is no real nightlife to speak of. Chaweng, the main nightlife area of the island, is about half an hour away by taxi.

    The hotel is convenient for island hoppers, since Mae Nam pier is less than a 10-minute drive away. Mae Nam pier is used by popular company Lomprayah Ferry, and has frequent connections to Koh Tao, Koh Phangan, and Donsak pier in Suratthani.

    Style & Design

    Belmond Napasai is a picture-perfect Thai island paradise. The decor in the villas is elegant and modern, but with strong traditional Thai influences. Think glossy wood paneling, warm neutral colors, and cool, pure white villas that emphasize the beauty of the natural surroundings.



    The resort has direct beachfront access, where you can lounge on a Balinese bed directly overlooking the ocean. The infinity pool also looks towards the sea and almost feels like a direct continuation of the ocean itself. There are two restaurants and a bar, all with an upmarket yet unpretentious ambience.

    Meanwhile, there is a huge variety of activities on offer, from yoga to windsurfing, tennis, Thai boxing, scuba diving, Thai language classes, cooking classes, and more. Tired after a busy day? Head to the spa for rejuvenating massage treatments with natural ingredients.


    Belmond Napasai offers a range of spacious luxury villas, ranging from intimate one-bedroom spaces to large independent residences. There are options for two, four, six, and eight people, so you’ll find something for you no matter the size of your group. The big oceanfront residences (which come with their own private pool) are perfect for large groups.

    All come with huge king-sized beds, standalone baths, private balconies, and gorgeous garden or sea views. The residences, as opposed to the villas, have well-equipped kitchenettes, making them ideal for longer stays.

        Gay Bar Street Chiang Mai


        Sitting along the south side of Chiang Mai’s famous Night Bazaar running a small street packed with a collection of gay bars. Now, don’t get your hopes up too high. While there is a fun collection of small bars, there are not huge crowds like you would find in Bangkok or other nightlife capitals.

        As walk down Chareonprathet Lane 6 Alley, look out of the rainbow flags. Some of the best gay bars to look out for include Orion Bar, Pandee Bar, Station One, Ozeed Bar and Jacky Bar. At the eastern end of the street sits Ram Bar, one of the best and most popular drag show bars in Chiang Mai. Packed to standing room only, during the drag performances every day from 8 pm.
