Past the fitness equipment and sweating exercisers at the stylish Ascend Body boutique fitness studio lies the serene sanctuary of Palinee Thai Spa. The spa's lounge area beckons weary bodies over with a comfy couch surrounded by white-washed brick walls, hardwood floors, and shadow-box-style planters filled with sticks and greenery. It further relaxes with traditional Thai massages—performed while the guest wears loose-fitting clothing—and full-body herbal massages complete with hot herbal compresses that rest on bare skin. These herbs may help relieve inflammation and muscle pain.
