The Oriental spa, Bangkok has opened a new facility, The Oriental Ayurvedic Penthouse. The Oriental Ayurvedic Penthouse offers various healing and natural treatments.



The art of Ayurveda originated in Kerala, South India. The word Ayurveda is a combination of words “life” and “knowledge” and means “the science of life”, dealing simultaneously with body and soul.  Among the treatments performed in Oriental Ayurvedic Penthouse is the Keraleeya Abhyangam. It is  a four-handed synchronized rhythmic massage performed by two therapists. Ayurvedic herbal powders are used during the Udwatanam (dry herbal massage). Another therapy is called Pizhichie. All of the above therapies use ancient Indian knowledge of medical art.



Ms Christina Watson, an experienced Ayurvedic consultant, oversees the establishment, and there are also two professional therapists from India working in the facility.



The Penthouse is equipped with things imported from India and Thailand. This includes herbal mixtures, plant based product, stand alone copper bathtubs or 100-year old wooden tables. All these things are meant to create a specific atmosphere.
