urban retreat - BKK Getaway 2011

A trip to the land of smiles will never be complete without a visit to the spa.
I used to frequent Baan Dalah MindBody Spa @ the Sukhumvit Soi 8 for their foot massage. This spa is lovely, convenient for where i stayed and reasonably priced.  But for this trip, i wanted to try some place more lush. Googled before the trip and found a couple... and settled for Urban Retreat as it's the cheapest of the lot.
There are 3 outlets in central Bangkok, all of which are along the BTS Sukhumvit line. I chose the newest outlet, right at the doorstep of Asoke BTS station, made a reservation via their online form, and was quite impressed at how quickly they responded to confirm my booking. All these in a matter of 2 hours. :)
True to their name, upon walking through the doors behind their counter, it felt like you have just entered  a retreat away from urban bangkok. You will be brought through what seems like a maze with multiple doors .... kinda like a sense of mystery as well!
SImple and clean design. All equipment & beds are neatly tucked in some corner/room. I did not see any beds or massage chairs @ any common areas.
Hwa and I opted for the oriental package which is a combo of foot massage, head & shoulder massage and thai massage with herbal balls. Great stuff!
Urban Retreat's Shop front. It is actually this huge and quite colonial looking building.
Us... waiting to be entertained! :)
