Just a stone’s throw away from the Brandenburg Gate lies a little temple of wellbeing. The award-winning luxurious spa Royal Chao Praya offers a range of professional massages in an elegant setting with excellent service. It’s the perfect place to unwind, relax and leave the stress of the city behind for a while.
After many years of intense training, including with Thai Warrior Master Jack Sharmann, it was an absolute dream come true for Chananchida Waschke to open her own wellness spa in Berlin Mitte in 2018. Waschke, who is originally from Thailand, not only brings a wealth of experience and certifications, but also genuine dedication to the art of Thai massages.
“Massage is my passion,” she says. “I love helping people achieve a state of wellbeing and I’m proud that clients from all over the world leave such positive feedback.” It should come as no surprise that her charming spa – featuring five beautifully designed massage rooms with luxurious Thai silk and stunning views – established itself in record time and is a popular choice amongst locals and travellers alike. Particularly the latter can benefit from a massage specifically designed to revitalise after a long journey.
Royal Chao Praya offers various Thai massages (including the popular Thai Warrior massage) as well as energising aromatherapy massages and Hawaiian lomi lomi massages. Waschke and her team are always keen to advance their craft even further, and frequently travel internationally to learn new skills.
“The traditional Thai massage actually contains a whole system of different massage types. Technically speaking, there is no such thing as a ‘Thai massage’,” Waschke explains. “In Thailand the various methods are grouped as ‘Nuad Phaen Boran’, which literally means ‘massaging following ancient techniques’ and the many health benefits have long been scientifically proven.”
“We always try our best in everything we do to make sure our clients feel welcome and satisfied,” she adds. “Let yourself be inspired by our legendary massage service and hospitality.“
