Ancient Thai Spa Rituals at Anantara Riverside Exploring the Scared Properties of “Nam Ob”

Email

Anantara Spa on the Chao Phraya is a lush escape from hectic city life. Treatment suites are set in tranquil gardens, inviting you to unwind. Drawing on indigenous wellness traditions, Anantara Spa introduces a two-hour spa journey inspired by “Thai Nam Ob” in time for Songkran.

Nam ob translates as water essence, and is a light perfume of florals, frankincense, tree root and Borneol camphor. Dating back to the Sukhothai era, its recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. Used as sacred water for Buddhist blessings, weddings and festivals, the distinct scent of nam ob calms both with its soothing properties and associated memories. Applied to the skin, it also cools and tones.

Begin your journey with a 30-minute scrub to prep the skin. Then submit to healing hands as they massage for 90 minutes with fragranced oil. Emerging in a state of supreme relaxation, we invite you to enjoy light Balance Wellness cuisine or a session of yoga and meditation in the garden.

The Nam Ob Ancient Thai Spa Ritual is available from now until 30 December 2019. Prices start from THB 3,700++ per person.

Anantara Riverside can be reached by complimentary river shuttle running between Saphan Taksin and our pier every 20 minutes. For more information or reservations, call +66 2 476 0022 ext. 1563 or email spa.ariv@anantara.com

Prices are subject to 10% service charge and 7% government tax.
