Yes... because collagen masks are ancient recipes, totally agree with Rosewood

A lot of eye catching gibberish. Therapists not as polished as i.sawan at GH.

Review Rosewood Bangkok Sense spa

This is a new spa led by Rosewood's Global VP for Wellness and making their spas into a "homey" residential concept. What a disaster for spaing with no proper reception desk, waiting or relaxation area. Yet, they found the space to sell scented candles, cosmetics and pool wear...




A very sterile feeling Couples treatment room for Bangkok. The Thenn spa in Central Embassy felt more welcoming and homey.



Recommend this Signature treatment for those who like Thai acupressure, stretching with strong pressure and oil used.



This Bespoke massage could be a lot better with more English fluent and experienced therapists. I give Rosewood Bangkok credit for getting away from the usual suspect massages like Swedish, Balinese, Noni, blah blah.

Another Sense, Rosewood spa review

10 times better than last time. Therapists were more polished and the Bespoke massage truly felt bespoke. We both had massages and facials and both very satisfied. My partner enjoyed her Instant lifting facial from EviDens and I enjoyed my Gentleman's tonic facial. Treatment bed face hole is the most plush bed this side of Shangri-la Tokyo.

The one bedroom room is still a little barren but more cozy than the two bedroom suite. Dyson hairdryer was another plus.

Nice to see them proliferating among luxury properties. Rosewood Bangkok is special for having them in the spa treatment rooms and common changing areas as well .

I love this quotation!

My partner swears by them. I've seen it drying in half the time of normal ones too.

Yup, drying time is much reduced. It's the directed air flow which accomplishes this and the hairdryer itself looks good too.

Perhaps mine was decrepit or we simply did not use it properly (most likely).

Just make sure to bring your own products, as she is limited to La Prairie nonsense.
Any updates on the LA/Beverly Hills area? Looks like Nerida started her own business https://neridajoy.com/

Also, separately, is George V still the go-to for Paris? Primarily interested in facials. Thanks!

George V has one of the more interesting facial programs in the city and the entire spa area was renovated.

Don't know how it was before, but the spreads are still quite good. I like the big screen wall in the gym.
