RAKxa, The Leading Integrative Wellness Sanctuary in Bangkok Unveils New Private Pool Villas for Deep Rest and Relaxation

31st October 2022 – Set against the lush backdrop of Bang Krachao, RAKxa, the leading integrative wellness and medical retreat in Bangkok, offers a cocoon of comfort with its thoughtfully designed accommodation for guests. Fostering deep rest and relaxation, RAKxa unveils the new private pool villas, which further elevate its level of luxury hospitality for the ultimate night’s sleep and rejuvenation.

Surrounded by therapeutic nature and serene lakefront views, each pool villa is set in a quiet habitat to provide a personal oasis, while an adjoining living room and spacious terrace allow for movement and morning yoga. With large glass doors opening up onto the garden, guests wake up every morning to immerse in the serene surroundings embraced by the green of nature, which helps to calm and refresh their peace of mind.

The wellness sanctuary’s new private pool villas are designed to allow a comfortable living environment while integrating with the overall concept of a Botanical Wellness Journey, with earth-toned spaces to soothe guests’ senses. The wood-floored interiors and furnishings are accented by Jim Thompson fabrics to reflect a local Thai relaxed simplicity, allowing guests to adjust themselves and focus fully on their health journey throughout their stay. As part of the villa experience, guests can also feel relaxed and refreshed by enjoying a variety of uniquely mixed herbal teas and fruits served from the minibar.

The layout and function of the private villas are universal and designed by doctors and physiotherapists to be accessible to everyone. With a Smart Room Controller, guests can monitor the current physical conditions of the room, such as temperature, air pollution control, and light level, to adjust to their comfort. RAKxa offers customised beds to ensure that each guest’s ergonomics are supported correctly in every movement around the villa, with the height of the bed being limited and designed not to be higher than 70cm, making it particularly comfortable for the elderly and guests with back pain and injuries.

As a way of giving back to the local Thai community, RAKxa thoughtfully equipped its villas with amenities made from the highest quality and natural materials available from various Thai brands. For example, the bedsheets are non-allergic and made of cotton silk, a natural material that prevents any allergies. Guests may also choose from six different types of pillows, including contour massage types, cervicalopedic, classic natural latex, 
buckwheat, companion, or memory foam, which are all made from natural materials.
The wellness journey continues in the villa’s spacious bathroom, which features facilities for every need with a design also suitable for the elderly. Guests will particularly enjoy immersing themselves in a luxurious and relaxing bath in the Jacuzzi bathtub, as the warm water stimulates blood circulation to make guests feel as if they are having a private in-room spa.

Guests can also enjoy refreshing swims in their private pool filled with salt water, which promotes healthy breathing and reduces allergy issues. Saltwater pools also leave guests with a smoother, more refreshed, invigorating feeling. Each stone placed around the pool is carefully chosen to make sure it is round and in the right shape for guests to walk on it, feeling the smooth pressure on their feet, which stimulates blood flow and helps to relax stressed muscles.

A tranquil space designed to soothe where contemporary minimalism meets nature’s raw beauty, RAKxa’s new pool villas set the scene for a restorative night’s slumber where guests will discover deeper rest, newfound energy, and a restored balance of body and mind for optimal wellbeing.
