You’d be surprised that some of the craftsmanship of the hard product is surprisingly shoddy, especially compared to other grand dames.

George V is my guess as well, which is still good, especially considering the market.

Peninsula has very nice spa facilities. I've heard the treatments also improved from when we went during their opening phase 4 years ago.

Aman Treatments

Are we supppsed to expect the actual massage/facial to last the full 60 minutes? A couple of times I've noticed we get to the spa at the apppointed time, then after a bit of a wait, changing etc, the treatment starts and is done 60 minutes or less after we first arrived at the spa, not 60 minutes after the actual treatment started. Is this standard/normal?

No, the 60 minutes should not include changing your foot scrub, etc. Some countries' therapists do play high and fast with the time and you can definitely raise it with management. Shouldn't happen.

Rosewood use exactly the same products in almost all their spas, which is why I always take my own. BK will be no different.

Have yet to try MO’s new spa, but out of all other choices, the Pearl Spa at FS Dubai likely remains as one of the best choices.

The Rosewood Bangkok spa guide or brochure is like a mini encyclopedia of ancient Thai wellness remedies.

They have a similar thing at the Crillon in Paris - ancient skincare recipes. The problem is, they incorporate their usual range of 'skincare' brands into the treatments, so you have to be careful!
