On the 6th and 8th floors of Centre Point Ratchadamri, you’ll find a portion of the Rarindinda wellness empire. With firm roots in Chiang Mai and another branch in Ploenchit, the Ratchadamri branch has been reinvented and renovated to cater to a style that incorporates authentic Thai and Ayurvedic traditions, seamlessly linking them with the powers of modern technology.
Conveniently located in a prime business district, Rarinjinda Wellness Spa Ratchadamri is a private paradise that blends tranquility with urban life. The spa provides the perfect opportunity to reclaim your serenity and harmony, any time of day, from morning to evening. As part of Rarinjinda’s Wellness Spa’s recent rebranding project that aims to create “The Ultimate Wellness Experience”, its interior is inspired by Thai arts, with walls that use the pagoda-like structures that one finds on the outer-walls of temples. This subtle design feature really hits an authentic note and brings out a Thai touch.
The copper, maroon and warm grey colours used for the furniture, walls and fittings add to the overall elegance of the spa, igniting a feeling of timeless luxury. The spa has also come up with its very own music list, with Thai-inspired instrumental music composed specifically for Rarinjinda. Whilst enjoying a treatment, you can listen to compositions never before heard.
Signature experiences include Elements of Life, a massage that uses the four elements of nature to provide healing effects for the body, using quartz sand, Tibetan sound therapy and cold rose water.
Psammo Therapies is a holistic treatment that uses psammo or sand to offer relaxation, purification and the stimulation of the metabolic rate.
In the Ayurvedic Hide Away package, one undergoes a Shirodhara Treatment where oil is dropped onto the forehead in the place of the third eye; this revitalizes the neck, hair and scalp and is followed by an Indian warm oil body massage. Other highlights include aroma oil massages, hot and cold stone massages, floral baths, mud baths, Siamese herbal steams and radiant body wraps. On our next visit, we look forward to seeing what the Rarinjinda Royal Touch, the spa’s ultimate and most expensive signature experience is all about.
Rarinjinda Ratchadamri also utilises Ultratone, a microtechnology that electronically simulates the body’s impulses to reshape the body and rejuvenate the face. If you are finding it difficult to get rid of unwanted fat, yet unwilling to undergo potentially dangerous liposuction surgery to achieve the body you want, Ultratone could well be the treatment for you.
I did a 30-minute session; at first, once the surface touched my skin, I had to stop myself from laughing as it felt very ticklish. There were points when the electrical impulses got very strong, but the doctor remained in the treatment room and ensured I was comfortable and relaxed. It sounds unreal but after just one treatment, my arm size went down 3cm and my waist went down 2cm. My muscles also felt incredibly worn out, as technically, they were exercised, to the extreme. It is said that just 30 minutes of this treatment on the stomach is equivalent to around 500 abdominal crunches… and you don’t even break a sweat!
The electrical impulses also have an oxygenating effect on the muscles. As a result, it is also great from an anti-ageing perspective. A 30-minute Ultratone session on the face left my skin feeling supple, rejuvenated and fresh.
Post-treatment, guests can enjoy some leisure time in the spa’s new Relaxation Lounge, which is stocked high with herbal teas, snacks and delectable mango sticky rice, which really come in handy after the longer treatments.
Rarinjinda Wellness Spa Ratchadamri is located on the 8th Floor of Grand Centre Point Hotel on Ratchadamri Road. For more information, visit www.rarinjinda.com.
