The requirements in terms of interior design and the quality of the facilities are very high especially if you want to open a luxury spa.

Depending whether you intend to set up a day spa or a destination spa your investment and business profile will differ in great degree. A day spa does not offer accommodation over night, but provides in most cases most of the health and wellness services which are offered by destination spas. In Bangkok, the day spa businesses attract from 60 to 90 % of the total spa clients of the city. Traditional Thai treatments or massages take about 90 minutes and are offered by the vast majority of the spa businesses in the country.
