This one is for the serious gym bunny.  Cascade Club at Ascott hotel is quite possibly one of the best-equipped gyms anywhere in Asia.  The workout area is spacious and has panoramic city views and a café bar where you can order a selection of smoothies and other drinks.

The club also has a steam room, sauna and jacuzzi.  Very nice outdoor pool, terrace and a great restaurant, too.

Premium membership prices, together with its slightly less convenient location on Sathorn means this gym never gets too busy.  Daily and short-term membership available.

  1. “Excellent range of modern equipment. Well maintained. Definitely best in its class in Bangkok with plenty of eye candy too. The only slight criticism would be that it gets a bit too hot in the afternoon.”

Bangkok’s most popular gay sauna Babylon has a relatively small but reasonably well-equipped fitness room.

If you are planning to use the gym, bring your kit and trainers as trying to work out in a towel is difficult.
