Immerse yourself in the tranquility of a sanctuary to soothe, relax and restore your body and mind. Quan Spa at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park revitalizes your wellbeing with all things good and pure. mylifestylenews writes.
Vacation destinations are sometimes not always about sightseeing, so it is refreshing to occasionally make a point of focusing on wellness in between a busy holiday schedule. The Quan Spa at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park is an oasis of spa wellness that must not be ignored, for it truly has something special to offer. The name of Quan Spa is no coincidence, as it means ‘spring water’ and represents all things that are good and pure, including health and wellness – after all, water is the source of life! Quan Spa is a luxury day spa that blends the traditions of Thailand with modern therapies to ensure rejuvenation and relaxation.
Quan Spa is an oasis where you can find balance and relaxation. When spa goers hear the selling points of spas being about restoring balance, you quite often get some quizzical looks from friends, wondering what does that mean and to be honest, it can sound a little bit strange to the uninitiated, but we truly believe in the powers of a revitalizing spa for a variety of reasons and why stop at just one note of the spa journey when you can indulge in a 2.5 hour package that truly immerses you into a state of bliss.
For us, spa is all about the ritual and so we opted for something a little more special by choosing the Signature Ritual – the Benja Malee Ancient Flower Remedy. This refined treatment embraces traditional Thai techniques and ingredients over 150 minutes. This refined treatment embraces traditional Thai techniques and ingredients to deliver outstanding results. A natural scrub harnesses “five pollen” flowers to cleanse and refresh the skin, before an aromatic massage combines the four elements to perfectly balance the body and mind. A hot compress of Thai flowers and natural oils then activates internal energy flows to tackle muscle pain and balance circulation throughout the body and we were anticipating a magical few hours of spa bliss.
Our spa journey began with a foot bath ritual, using natural salts and citrus extracts that refreshed our feet in a very soothing way with a sensual touch. This segues into the “Five Pollen” dried flowers scrub which is a remedy to cleanse and refresh the body skin. For those of you that have not booked a cleansing scrub, it really is a panacea for the body, in terms of sloughing off the dead skin cells and ‘polishing’ the skin to leave a very fresh and smooth visage. Your skin feels so much better after this and you will be amazed at the outcome and how young your skin feels again.
The next stage of our ritual journey was the aromatic massage combining the four elements to perfectly balance the body and mind. A massage can come in many different forms, but the key is the pressure that is applied and once we had informed our therapists what we wanted, they just seemed to be instinctive about what level to take it to and it clearly had the right effect when assessing our state of body afterward. Massage therapy is one of the oldest therapeutic remedies known to man. The simple act of human touch has the ability to connect, stimulate, relax and regenerate the body’s natural healing process.
Lastly, there is the Benja Malee Floral Aromatic Compress. This is simply a hot compress of Thai flowers and natural oils that activates internal energy flows to tackle muscle pain and balance circulation throughout the body. As a finale to all that had taken place, this hot compress definitely released energy and had such a soothing effect to the overall experience.
When the ritual had been completed, we were in a heightened state of being due to the restorative effects of all the components. We had had similar packages before elsewhere, but this one really made a difference and the techniques and skills of our therapists are to be admired. This is one of the best spa experiences we have ever had and enables you to rediscover the ancient art of aromatherapy and experience the healing powers of essential oils to help you journey towards total relaxation for the best results.
A place of personal peace and well-being, is an urban haven of rejuvenation and relaxation, as it embraces the fundamentals of vitality, fitness and beauty to achieve balance and good health. Quan Spa embraces the essence of rejuvenation to provide provide a restorative experience to awaken, relax and renew your mind, body and soul. For a journey to renewal, we cannot recommend Quan Spa highly enough.
