Yunomori Onsen and Spa Sukhumvit 26 in Bangkok Review

Yunomori Onsen and Spa (Sukhumvit 26) is the first Japanese onsen and spa in Thailand.

During my final evening in Bangkok before flying home the following day, I had no plans. I ultimately made the decision to travel to Yunomori Onsen and Spa (Sukhumvit 26) for a soak. Unlike the Yunomori Onsen and Spa Sathorn 10, Sukhumvit 26 is much further away from any BTS or Metro station. I nevertheless made the decision to walk there from Phrom Phong BTS station, since I was looking for a place to have dinner.

Just like any other Yunomori outlets, Sukhumvit 26 is a place for a retreat from the hectic nature of city life. The range of services offered such as massages, facials, and body scrubs starting at 30 minutes. I once again opt for the onsen entrance à la carte for 550 THB. After making payment and receiving my locker number, I proceed on to the to the shoe locker room to change into the tatami slippers provided.


I took a quick tour around the Zen-inspired building and the wooden element furnishings were game-strong. The lobby has comfortable sofas and a few rocking chairs situated at the back. There were two restaurants, one of which, “Happy Rice,” serves guests Japanese cuisine. Right in front of the entrance of the bathhouse, there was a Zen garden designed for guests to take pictures with. Further down the corridor leads to a really dim lounge where guests could take a short nap or watch television.

After changing out of my clothes, I went into the bath house for a quick shower before soaking in the onsen baths. These baths include Yunomori Signature Bath, Mineral Water Bath, Jet Bath, Garden Bath, Cold Bath and Teak Bath. The Teak Bath is an individual bath where you soak in a traditional teak wood tub for relaxation. Of course, there is also the usual Sauna Room and Steam Room too.

The crowd wasn’t too bad because I went on a weekday, and it was late evening. I enjoyed the experience soaking in the onsen, but I still prefer the newer outlet located at Sathorn 10. In order to get back to Phrom Phong BTS station, I took a motorcycle taxi from Rama IV Road.
