Travelling around countries like Thailand can be a life-changing experience. Stunning islands, historical temples and huge national parks are everywhere you turn, leaving you with plenty of things to see, do and explore. When exploring, however, it’s important to listen to your body, as all that walking, trekking and swimming can leave you feeling sore and tired. Luckily for you, Bangkok is home to some amazing massage parlours. Whether you want some therapy for your muscles, or simply wish to relax, here are Bangkok’s best massage parlours.

A corner of calm in Bangkok, Baan Sabai Spa provides a number of high-quality massage and spa services performed by highly-trained and carefully selected staff. Aromatics are a large feature of Thai culture, from the dishes they cook to the incense in a temple, and it’s no different when it comes to massage services. Baan Sabai’s Aroma Massage has a number of soothing oils available, and the massage and aroma help you to fall into a state of deep relaxation and bliss. Traditional Thai massages are available to work-out the most stubborn of knots and are just one of several massages available to choose from. With its large range of services and its convenient location near to K Village, there’s little wonder it’s so highly rated.

Organika Secret Spa

It’s often difficult to cultivate a sense of nature in a city like Bangkok, but those wishing to do so should take a leaf out of Organika’s books. Organika Secret Spa is clean and green, with a minimalist decor and foliage fostering a sense of returning to nature and calm – meaning the massage has almost done its job before you’ve even been touched. Each of its massages are stunningly perfect, helping to reset both your mind and body, promote a sense of wellbeing and remove all the tension you may have. It’s a wonderful experience in a tranquil, aromatic setting that’s unlikely to be forgotten.

Bamboo Spa

Navigating Bangkok on the best of days can leave you feel stressed and worn out, but thankfully there are places like Bamboo Spa on hand to leave you feeling lighter and ready to take on the city again. There are a large number of services available, from the traditional Thai massage to more specialist massages, such as detoxification and reflexology. Staff are attentive and professional, with a quality to cost ratio that’s hard to beat. The bamboo theme is authentic and calming, and the spa itself is clean and fragrant, leaving your mind at ease to relax whilst you enjoy the treatment.

Massages are steeped in Thai tradition

3. Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage

School, University

Thailand’s stunning Wat Pho temple has been the base of Thailand’s traditional massage and medicine since King Rama III established the nation’s first university here, in a bid to both preserve and further develop this noble art. Today, traditional Thai and foot massages take place in a communal setting in the temple grounds themselves, in the place where it all began, for a truly historic and culturally significant experience. It might not have the luxury or privacy of some other massage parlours, but it’s a little slice of history and as authentic as they come – not to mention in the shadow of one of Thailand’s most famous temples.

5. Yunomori Onsen


A Japanese onsen experience in the heart of Bangkok, Yunomori draws water from the thermal springs of Wat Wangkanai temple before guests are invited to bathe and detoxify in it. With a distinctly Japanese, minimalist appearance both outside an in, it certainly lures guests into a sense of calming peacefulness, and its Thai, aroma and herbal compress massages are the perfect follow-up to a dip in the onsen. Both your body and soul will feel soothed and mended, leaving you with a clear mind and a willing body to continue your travels. It’s different to the usual massage parlours in Bangkok, but it’s more than worth a visit.
