Bangkok Massage- The Scoop

Planning on visiting one or two of the following spas for while in Bangkok. Does anybody have feedback on the following and trying to determine which has the nicest surroundings.

1) DIVANA MASSAGE- on sukhumvit soi 25
2) FACE SPA
3) SAREERAROM TROPICAL SPA- sukhumit soi 55
4) Ruen-Nuad Massage

Please let me know which one is the best to wind down from the bangkok heat and congestion. Thanks in advance.

Can't comment on Divana, as they lost my reservations despite confirming and corressponding for over a month.

Instead we went to Spa on 9th. I'll have to say it is the nicest of all the spas I've tried in US, Japan Thailand and Asia. Gorgeous traditional Thai decor, best massage & spa treatments, nicest employees, best snacks and excellent price.

I can look up the contact info later if you're interested.

Face is lovely. The treatment rooms are traditional teak buildings. It feels very "Thai" as opposed to being luxe as the hotel spas tend to be. The prices are also good. It's a very small place, just two treatment rooms, each can hold a couple.

What you consider a "good price" for a Spa in Bangkok?

The Dulaya spa is lovely. I believe it's near the Davis hotel off Sukumvit 25 or so. Great treatment rooms, reasonable prices. They have a website...
