respectively. The Peninsula Bangkok has opened an expansive new spa, and this
fall The Peninsula Tokyo will open.

As part of its brandwide spa initiative, Peninsula Hotels
recently opened The Peninsula Spa by ESPA at The Peninsula Bangkok. The spa
measures 19,000 square feet and includes 14 treatment rooms, four couples' spa
suites, a tea lounge and men's and women's relaxation rooms. It also has a
salon, a three-tier outdoor swimming pool and a fitness center with sauna and
steam rooms and hot and cold Jacuzzis.

Upon arrival, spa patrons are served indigenous herbal teas
from the Royal Project, which was initiated by the king's mother, and have a
thorough wellness consultation.

Peninsula has partnered with ESPA for the development of
treatments and products designed for Peninsula
guests. At the Peninsula Bangkok, choices include signature body treatments
that fuse Thai, ayurvedic and European therapies. Thai, Balinese, Swedish and
aromatherapy body massages also are available, as are a number of facials, and
ESPA for Men, a menu of massages and facials.

Travelers also can book half-day and full-day packages. They
can augment either choice by reserving one of the four private suites. These
suites have private changing areas, steam showers, double baths and double
treatment areas; the River Private Spa Suites also have views of the Chao Phraya River.

reception manager. She can be reached at (66-2) 861-2888 or via e-mail at [email protected].

connections to Tokyo's
subway and train networks.
