Clinique La Prairie to open at Bangkok’s luxury St Regis hotel

Minor Hotels has entered into partnership with Clinique La Prairie to operate the Swiss health clinic’s very first aesthetics and medical spa outside of Europe.

Due to launch in the third quarter of this year, the Clinique La Prairie Aesthetics & Medical Spa will operate at Minor’s The St. Regis Bangkok under MSpa International (group director, Zoe Wall), the corporate division of spa and wellness with Minor Hotels.

The state-of-the-art medical spa will be a luxurious haven of rejuvenation centrally located in Thailand’s capital city. An escape from the hectic pace of Bangkok, the medical spa, which has 13 treatment rooms, will offer forever-young treatments and healing therapies in line with Clinique La Prairie’s commitment to helping and inspiring people to live a healthier, longer and better life. Only Swiss Perfection products will be used.

Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO of Minor International, owning company of The St. Regis Bangkok said, “We are delighted to partner with Clinique La Prairie on their first business venture in Asia and we are excited to see this collaboration come to fruition. Bangkok is the global capital of medical and wellness tourism and we are confident that the demand for, and the expertise of the Clinique La Prairie Aesthetics & Medical Spa, will be very well received by residents of Bangkok and visitors to Thailand.”

Simone Gibertoni, CEO of Clinique La Prairie says: “Since 1931, Clinique La Prairie is a unique destination where the level of care enwraps the guests in cutting edge health care and wellness. After nearly 90 years of heritage in Switzerland, the clinic’s ambition is to offer its expertise and its holistic approach to well-being – based on the four pillars of medical care, wellness, nutrition and exercise – abroad.”

Bangkok’s Clinique La Prairie Aesthetics & Medical Spa will replace the current Elemis spa on the 15th floor of The St. Regis Bangkok. There will be dedicated male and female relaxation areas, each spread over two floors with a relaxation lounge and floating pods (see image above), locker facilities, showers and restrooms on the mezzanine level, while the lower wet area of each showcase steam rooms, Jacuzzis, cold plunge pools, and experience showers inviting personalized selection of water pressure, lighting and music.

St Regis, Bangkok, which is owned by Minor, with interiors by Patricia Urquiola, opened 1st April 2011.  Of the 228 bedrooms, prize is the 800sq m duplex Penthouse #4402, which comes with four butlers, three double bedrooms and two cooks. Whatever, try to get a room overlooking Rajadamri Road to Bangkok Royal Sport Club. GM is Klaus Christandl.
