Shama Lakeview Asoke wellness retreat


Most city-dwellers get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. But after 2 years of surviving a global pandemic, a sweet respite does seem like a rather expensive pipe dream.

Though it often feels like there’s no time to relax, there’s also no time – like the present – to indulge in a short getaway. Call it what you will: self-care, me-time, a wellness retreat.

Time away from our responsibilities to fully switch off our phones, rejuvenate our bodies, and focus the mind on recharging for what’s sure to be an eventful last quarter of 2021.

Enter Shama Lakeview Asoke’s wellness retreat. Think poolside yoga classes, free access to a fully kitted out gym, and leisurely walks in the sprawling Benjakitti Park just a 5-minute walk away.

We’ve scoped out the facilities for you, so you’ll be one step closer to the affordable city getaway you deserve.

More on Shama Lakeview Asoke:


Poolside mocktails & yoga classes


Staying masked when we head outside is now the norm, but there’s truly nothing like feeling the unbridled warmth of the sun’s rays on our faces.

Taking in breaths of fresh air by the poolside will also be quite literally a world away from inhaling stale mask breath all the time.

We’d make a beeline for the vast rooftop pool to lounge our afternoon away with a mocktail or two.

The pool is open for those who wanna take a dip from 6.00AM to 9.00PM daily. Do note that there’s a limit for 4 in the pool per 1-hour slot for safe distancing purposes.

If swimming isn’t your thing, but you still wish to stretch out the kinks in your spine from the long hours of work from home, consider signing up for a free poolside yoga class.

It’s perfectly alright if you’re a beginner who can’t differentiate the ‘Downward Dog’ from the ‘Warrior’ pose, as a trained instructor will be happy to assist.

FYI, poolside yoga classes run every Saturday from 9.00AM to 10.00AM for 10 pax, so make sure to sign up early before slots run out.


Werkin’ hard at an expansive gym from 5AM to 9PM


Since we’re planning our wellness retreats, it’s essential to work hard to get ourselves in shape. All guests can enjoy free access to Shama Lakeview Asoke’s expansive 200sqm Fitness Centre.

You can clock in to werk on those washboard abs as early as 5.00AM, and stay on the grind till 9.00PM.

Fully kitted out with dumbbells, treadmills and mirrors, there’s loads of room for you to take that daily ‘gains’ shot for the ‘gram.

As per BMA regulations, only 5 people are allowed to use the gym per 1-hour slot concurrently. So do sign up for slots early.


Benjakitti Park is a 5-minute walk away


Getting up close and personal with nature is also a great way to rejuvenate our worn bodies, minds, and souls. If you wish to step out of the gym environment for a workout, there’s another option just a 5-minute walk away.

Benjakitti Park, one of Bangkok’s ‘green lungs’, is a sprawling nature park home to towering trees, boardwalks bordering a pond, jogging lanes, a bicycle path, and an amphitheatre all spread over a vast 259 rai of land at the heart of the city.
