Capella Bangkok Unveils Auriga Wellness, A Sanctuary For The Senses Overlooking The Chao Phraya River

Capella Bangkok, the refined urban resort on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, invites guests to experience a new level of wellness with the opening of Auriga Wellness, a world-class spa spearheaded by the renowned wellness specialists of GOCO Hospitality.

The spa immerses guests in a natural sanctuary of tranquillity, blending contemporary wellness techniques with ancient Asian wisdom. Nestled in the resort’s lush landscaped gardens, this 1,074-square metre facility features seven treatment rooms (including two spa suites), a thermal bathing area, a naturally lit tea lounge with outdoor spa garden and a well-equipped fitness centre.

Drawing upon age-old therapies and medicinal herbs and spices—many growing organically in the local area—Auriga Wellness will provide a truly unique spa experience. Conceptualised by GOCO Hospitality, the spa programme balances the heritage of the various communities along Charoenkrung Road with treatments embracing elements of traditional Chinese medicine, Indian healing rituals and time-honoured Thai techniques (such as Tok Sen, a hammer massage introduced to Bangkok by settlers from Chiang Mai). To offer guests the best in modern healing and beauty treatments, Auriga Wellness also worked with acclaimed luxury skincare brand ‘111SKIN’ to design a range of signature facial and body therapies, including dedicated treatments for gentlemen and the award-winning non-surgical lift facial.

An extensive menu of massages, body scrubs, wraps, facials and cleansing rituals will leave guests feeling fully restored, refreshed and rejuvenated. A series of active classes and lifestyle sessions, such as yoga, tai chi, personal training, TRX workouts and Muay Thai, will invigorate the mind and body.

“Capella Bangkok is set to become one of the most iconic wellness destinations in Bangkok thanks to its never-before-seen collection of locally inspired spa treatments,” says Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality. “Auriga Wellness will take guests on genuine journeys that explore the unique healing traditions inspired by the communities of Charoenkrung Road. This area is famed for its expertise in herbal medicines and ancient massage techniques, and I can’t wait to see these rituals come to life at Capella Bangkok.”

“Auriga Wellness is a ‘sanctuary within a sanctuary’ – a self-enclosed full-service spa in the heart of our riverside resort,” says John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok. “Surrounded by tropical gardens, this is a cocoon where guests and local residents can escape from the outside world and unwind in a deeply peaceful ambience. GOCO Hospitality has created breath-taking spa experiences for Capella in Sanya, Bali and the Maldives, and I am delighted to introduce their unique concept to Capella Bangkok,”

The sense of wellbeing at Capella Bangkok does not end at Auriga Wellness; spa-inspired services permeate throughout this innovative urban resort, from in-room wellness programmes and yoga mats to healthy dining options, a glistening riverside pool, and highly engaging experiences curated by a team of ‘Capella Culturists’, who tap into the rich history of this storied neighbourhood.

Auriga Wellness is open daily from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. For more information and reservations, please email auriga.bangkok@capellahotels.com or call 065 998 4648. To learn more about Capella Bangkok, please visit www.capellahotels.com/bangkok or call 02 098 3888.
