Massage And Welcome Drink At Dusit Thani

When I first checked in to Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok, I was given this piece of paper.



It was a notice to inform me about the Welcome Drink that I and my friend would be getting for staying in the hotel.

We had actually forgotten all about it until I saw this piece of paper lying by my bedside on the morning of our third day in Bangkok.

We had planned to go for a massage at the hotel that day but decided to go enjoy our Welcome Drinks first. For that, we needed to go to the hotel's rooftop D'Sens Bar and Restaurant.



The D'Sens Bar and Restaurant which serves French cuisine was indeed a nice place, overlooking Bangkok's panoramic city skyline. The views would probably be even more breathtaking at night!



D'Sens boasts a well-stocked wine cellar featuring many of the world's finest wines!

Oh! What a funny design. They have an aquarium in the bar!



I spent some time looking at the fishes swimming in the aquarium. LOL!



And then we were given our Welcome Drinks!



Ooh, I love the drink! I think we were given the French Kiss cocktail. Or maybe not - I was not too sure. Got to ask my friend about this!



The French Kiss is a mixture of vodka, raspberry, coconut and pineapple juice - I sure could taste the coconut and the pineapple!



After that, we went for our massage at Dusit Thani's Devarana Spa. This is the staircase leading up to the spa.



The entrance to Devarana Spa looks grand, don't you agree?



Once inside the Main Reception Area, I was in awe of the sparkling water pond and vibrant colours of the interior.



Devarana is a Thai-Sanskrit word, meaning 'Garden In Heaven'. What a nice name!

We chose the cheapest and basic package and went for a one hour massage.



I was not allowed to take pictures of the massage room so these were the only pictures I managed to take of the spa.

It was indeed a very rejuvenating massage and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    What a nice place Foong.

    I am thinking if the Dusit Thani here in the Philippines looks the same as the one you went in Bangkok.

  32. Tekkaus said...

  33. Tekkaus said...

    And the fish...looks riiculously low class? Seriously. :p They should have reared arowana...or arapaima. :p

    January 22, 2011 at 4:49 PM
  34. Tekkaus said...

    Vodka....together with fruits? Yerr....haha :D Too exotic for me. Besides I don't drink.

  35. Tekkaus said...

    Wow..the entrance looks like very grand...but then...it looks quite "cold" too. :p

    Yeah, these coupons are normally slipped in together with the keys in the little pouch or folder and are easily missed.

    Spas have that serene and quiet atmosphere. They smell great too.

    LOL! Your Cambodia trip report will have to lose its roar from the Tiger year and hopping into the Rabbit year. Still, looking forward to it.

    Btw, Foong, since you enjoy massages, your next destination should be Turkey where you can go to the old Turkish bath, a fantastic place to be steamed, scrubbed and massaged.
