In conjunction with Oktoberfest in Germany, this September through November, visitors at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort can enjoy the ‘Enriching Beer Therapy’; a spa package utilising the properties of the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage: beer. Unwind from city life with a two-hour spa journey to cleanse and polish the skin. Then, top it all off with a beer in-hand at the Elephant Bar.
The therapy begins with a Beer Mint Bubble Bath that cleanses the body from top to toe. Rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and antioxidants, bathing in beer has been carried out in Europe for centuries. These suds are great for the skin; increasing elasticity and circulation. Don’t be afraid to dip below; hair can benefit too. Actress Catharine Zeta-Jones once swore by beer’s hair-smoothing results.
The journey continues with a Beer Scrub, drawing out impurities through active ingredients like orange peel, Oryza salt rice powder and cranberry seed. Once the skin has been polished to a healthy glow, a warming massage awaits.
The treatment melts into an hour-long full body massage with Rice Bran Oil. One can feel the tension slip from muscles, at the same time breathing in the subtly sweet scent.
After being thoroughly spoilt, guests are treated to a frothy pint at the colonial Elephant Bar. It’s a journey that leaves you refreshed from tip to toe, to head!
The ‘Enriching Beer Therapy’ package lasts for two hours and is priced at THB 3,900++ per person and THB 7,600++ per couple. The package is available through 30 November 2017.
