The Okura Spa is tapping the medicinal benefits of mangosteen, “the queen of fruits”.



It’s packed with natural polyphenol compounds known as xanthones and an abundance of other nutrients, including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, sodium, proteins, carbohydrates and fibre. 

The combined therapeutic qualities of these elements help combat cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. 

The fruit aids in longevity with its anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Get a massive dose of it with the 90-minute “Purple Pampering”, available daily through September from 10 to 10. It costs Bt3,800.

The treatment begins with a mangosteen body scrub designed to open up the pores and leave the skin feeling soft, supple and refreshed. 

Then, an aroma massage eases stress, revives tired muscles and awakens the senses for a relaxed and rejuvenated sensation. The oil used is a blend of Camelia sinensis tea, citrus, jasmine and peppermint. 

Every customer also gets a bar of mangosteen soap by Harnn.
