The 229-key St Regis Bangkok has launched a new wellness programme incorporating Thai boxing (Muay Thai) with the addition of a boxing ring to its list of recreational amenities.
Guests will be under the watchful eye of Thai boxing instructor, Boonsanong Borchae, better known as Coach Jack, who brings more than 15 years of Thai boxing expertise and holds a degree in sport science.
During customised training sessions tailored for beginners through skilled practitioners, Coach Jack will guide participants on the traditions, rituals and customs of the sport. The training focuses on precision and safety, while ensuring full enjoyment of their Thai boxing immersion. Complimentary equipment is provided (fitted gloves and knee pads) along with water and fresh towels.
Thai boxing training sessions are US$44 per hour plus taxes for St Regis Bangkok’s in-house guests, or US$63 per hour plus taxes for non-guests.
The ring is located within the 15th floor Wellness Center, which features an array of TechnoGym ellipticals, treadmills and stationary bikes; free weights; TRX suspension trainers; exercise mats and foam rollers.
To complement the new Thai Boxing sessions, the hotel offers several additional options that can enhance a guest’s overall wellness experience, such as a Total Wellness Dining Program; and a toning package at the spa.
Guests may opt for a nutritional consultation with executive chef Chris to create a customised meal programme to follow during their stay. They may choose from three categories: Muscle Builder (focusing on foods that help muscle building), Refuel (healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner choices that replenish the body), or Calorie Watch (for those looking to limit high-calorie indulgences). Pricing is dependent upon the number of meals chosen.
As an added fitness option, F-EMS training at the ELEMIS Spa provides a full-body workout to tone and shape the body. F-EMS training works 350 muscles simultaneously to burn more than 1,000 calories in 25 minutes with the guidance of a Body Contouring Specialist. The package includes a 30-minute F-EMS session and is offered for US$78 plus taxes.
