While Bangkok is best known for its traditional massage and beauty treatments, the city also boasts plenty of boutique spas that offer something more unique. These innovative spas are different from what you might expect — imagine a nail bar with organic café, or a hair salon where you can get a therapeutic massage. If you’re after a one-of-a-kind holistic wellness experience, check out these unique boutique spas in Bangkok.
At Abracadabra Lifestyle Shop, you’ll find an impressive selection of local products like scented candles, homemade soap and environmental-friendly woven bags. Aside from the lovely boutique, there’s also a little corner nail salon, where you can get a stylish gel manicure done by the talented Japanese nail artist, who is the owner and mastermind behind this unique lifestyle concept.
