  2. Not the best experience

    “Choice of masseuses very limited. Massage itself was OK, room was rather run down, no music playing. Only one towel also for taking a shower. Decided for a 90 mins aromatherapy but massage was only 60 mins and manager insisted on paying for 90 mins until I showed him the time. Other places are better.“

  3. Everything I dreamed of... and more

    “Visited this massage place last week, on a weekday at around 5 pm. The place is not so easy to find as it is a bit hidden in a small subsoi. I appeared to be the only customer. Three masseurs were on site, and I chose one... eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Judging from the reviews here, he is very popular (or maybe they are all called Sun). Anyway, Sun gave me a wonderful 90 min aromatherapy massage. It was heaven. Everything I dreamed of... and more. And what a joy to see the Sun rise at the end :-) I'll be back !“

  5. Great time with SUN

    “All I can say is I've experienced a few massage places with the extra service and being in Thailand - why not? I will say this I stopped at this particular establishment and I chose the masseur "Sun" he was muscular, fit and kind and just an amazing experience hands down. If you are in need of something more than just someone faking their way to an extra service completion, then this is the guy for you. He cares and it's rare to come across someone that is genuine. He offers very good massage and good smiles. Great time with you, Sun. I'll be back.“

  6. Thank u my SUN

    ““Visited this little gem the second time last month, and truly enjoyed my massage under the care of Sun, who is my first choice because of his boyish-looking face and swim-fit body. Moreover, he fully proved me his professional massage skills in the next 1 hour with attention to every detail. The overall facilities are a little bit run-down though, this is the place to be if you are looking for a massage at reasonable price. "I love you so much SUN I will be back to see you."

  11. So suprised that the tip is higher than the massage service

    “Last night, I managed to get to Baantewa by Grab Bike alone. The massage is on the 2nd floor, I needed to call to confirm if it is closed or not and a staff came to pick me up. The staff gave me the menu which indicates 700 baht for 60min oil massage, 90 mins will be 900 baht st, and 1200 st. Sorry If I remember incorrectly. A strange thing here was that TIP is required. Minimum tip is 1000 baht for 60 and 90 minute massage, the rest is 1200 baht. So in my case the tip was higher than the massage service. I was offered 2 guys including the staff I mentioned above. They are not of my preference at all, just medium not handsome. The massage was ok, not as expected. Tye staff was nice to me during the massage, and was suportive of my Grab booking. But I think I won't be back.“

  12. Best Place

    “So many things to say about my 2 visits last week:

    1.) The place is simple and clean
    2.) Staff on duty are warm and accommodating
    3.) The boys are not intimidating, and are very friendly
    4.) For the 90 minute package, 60 minutes are for good quality massage. The rest are for the fun part. But note: you still get good quality massage.
    5.) Pricing is fair.
    6.) Therapists sound very genuine and interested to meet you.

    Definitely coming back.“

  14. Exceptional

    “Decided to give this place a try after a long day of walking thru downtown Bangkok. I've been to a few of the better know message places listed on this site and I can say that, as far as quality of massage, this place is the best. The massage was professional, intentional, and very, very thorough:)

    The location is about a 10-15 minute walk outside of the area where all the big massage places are. It's on a quiet street behind the Metro Condo tower and around the corner from the Singapore Embassy. There is a small light blue/green sign out front. Take the outside stairs on the right and walk up to the second floor and ring the buzzer. One of the boys will let you in.
    On my visit there were only two boys to choose from, but both were very cute. More on the masculine side. I chose my masseur, the type of massage and time, and was led upstairs to the room. It was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and air conditioned. The masseur left to take a shower, returned and led me to take a quick shower.
    The massage itself was very professional. Incredibly relaxing. Never too hard or too soft. The technique was perfect. Just the right amount of sensual. The masseur was clearly well trained.
    The professional part of the massage ended when I was asked to turn over. At this point the masseur paid me even more attention and things naturally progressed well past the standard happy ending. After our fun ended, he took me to the shower and washed me clean.
    The experience was everything you would want in a massage. Professional, sensual, exotic, and erotic. So far, my best experience in Bangkok. A bit more expensive than places like Arena, but well worth it.
    And I should say that there was never a moment when I was haggled over money or tips. The only time money was discussed was at the very beginning when I was given the price and service menu.
    A great experience and highly recommended.“

  15. Terrible

    “I visited this place through this travel gay asia. Most of the reviews are good. But it was terrible.

    The manager told me to pay only 500 baht for a tip after my complaining. So I paid total 1,200 baht for 1 hour massage and tip even though I couldn't enjoy anything at all. what a waste of money. The manager is ok but the massuers are not good.“

  16. Just... wow!!

    “This is the first review on here from me after relying on the website for the past three years since I moved to Asia. After a disappointing massage at Prince spa I had the most amazing time at Baantewa. I was able to get a masseur as requested and didn’t have to pay up front.

    After a solo shower the masseur came in wrapped in a towel and started to give a better than average massage. Honestly the hottest thing ever!!! “

  17. Thank you Leo (sp?)

    “I had a great massage by Leo ( I think that is what he said his name was). He gave me a great Combo Massage that was quite satisfying from the beginning to the end. No hassles like with most other masseurs in Bangkok. He did his job and was compensated for it. A great and rare experience. If all the massage experiences in Bangkok were like this one, I would be broke! LOL“

    “This is my first massage men by men. I'm a little nervous at beginning, but relax after a while. I choosed SUN to do massage for me. He is more handsome than the picture and he is the total style I like. The massage is professional and make me feel good. He is so kind and lead me to find ATM I need when I went out. This is my best experience in my Thailand travel. SUN. wait me, I will come back to visit you, because I love you very very much!““

  20. Not so impressed

    “After last night with True, I returned, but this time chose another guy, body cleansing scrub, and 90 minutes aromatherapy massage, I was not impressed sorry to say, I felt less and less pleasurable as time progressed, I even wanted to end, and finish. I may return someday, but hopefully choose better massage therapist next time.“

  22. Worth Coming Back! Again!

    “Sorry failed to say that he might have a small physique but quite a giant in other areas though! Added with the sensual touch and loving care that he is giving, he will bound to make you come back for more! Thank you very much Nimh for making my trip so memorable! Hope you like the additional S$10 tips!“

  23. Worth Coming Back!

    “Was met at the door by True. Given a book to select my package and masseur available. He was also one of the available ones and would very much select him but as he never smiled during the whole introductions that i decided on Nimh even though the hottest one Sun is also available. Nimh has a soulful kind of look in the picture. When he came, i was really surprised that he is such a small size! I was having second thoughts about my decisions than! Anyway, since i have selected him, might as well give it a try. Glad that i stick to my decision!
    Though he might be small in size but not in strength and techniques! His massages made my stress slips away! When it comes to the service, what a TIGER he was! Wow! It really blew my mind away! I was really brought to heaven and back!
    I would highly recommend Nimh and would certainly come back again! Too bad that it was my last day in Bangkok and have not tried on my first day of arrival!
    Nimh you are the reason for me to come back to Bangkok the next time! An amazing and unforgettable experience!“

    “After reading reviews online I decided to give the place a try. Only one guy was available, I asked for an aromatherapy and thai message and instead got a scrub down and what I could only call a beginners gentle massage - I could do better myself.“

He speak good English, too charming naturally. I like him. Thanks for a good time with me.“

  27. Sunny experience

    “Went to check out if popular guy Sun was as good as the reviews here said. Was definitely pleasantly surprised.
    Sun has a handsome face, but a well-defined manly body, no doubt from hours of hard work at the gym. To round it off, he was polite and sincere. And this guy can give a good hard massage!
    His English is good enough to converse with, and he made small talk with a deep soothing voice.
    Best of all, he was not pushy at all. Didn't rush the time, delivered a professional job, and never once hinted at any tip whatsoever.
    Try him... promise you won't regret. Will definitely return first thing the next time I go BKK.“

  28. September 2016 visit

    “I have been here more than once and received great massage from Sun and wow it was best massage I ever had in 2015. I decided to come back this trip and tried a new masseur. I was greeted with the same receptionist who never smile to great clients. I am not sure why he was assigned to greet at the front desk for except this time his attitude worse than last time. It was Sunday, they was busy all day long was told by the therepist who gave me a massage. I did not expect to come for a rubbing down massage only my back and cut short a massage and weak.. I did not quite believed the comment from other viewers. The massage was awful rubbing down and expect minimum tip. I do not mind to give extra if it was good massage. I did not expect this place had massage like this... Sorry but it was the worse experience with massage that I did not expect and it led me not come back any more...btw, pricing and tip are required higher than any other places...hopefully it will help the next customer to choose the right masseur not like I did.“

  29. Best of Sun

    “I have been there more than once, had the two hours signature package with the most popular boy Sun, and experienced the most amazing and consistent care from him. The facility is a little bit hidden, which is ideal for some people. You would better use google map to locate it. My masseur Sun is lovely, has a perfect body, superb massage skills, as well as an Angel look. The entire two hours was full of love, and my body felt super relaxed after. It's the only massage place I visited in Bangkok. I would never forget it and Sun is the best! You should really experience in person during your stay.“

    “I've known Baantewa massage. On Internet and I find telephone numbers and only to ask where I went to a place where you receive guests to book the massuers. Opened view. I ask SUN vacant unemployment because there's talk about of him on the comments them told was not available, I see DAN. I took him they took me to continue managing and massage the base. What I see is it's amazing. I like he so much thanks. DAN (moderated)“

  32. Better Decision Next Time

    “I dropped by last Sunday, 24 July 2016 to try their package.

    The preferred therapist hasn't arriving and I selected one at the spun of the moment.

    The scrub session was religiously executed with small talks in between. The therapist excused himself twice to leave the room when the massage started. I felt that he tried to hard to please.

    The session was accompanied by periodically pounding from construction two doors away.“

  33. Best visit

    “This is the first time I visited the place because I used to go to HERO but now they're close. I found the place because of the good comments online so i tried it. I pick SUN because ive heard so much about him being so good and i really never regret it. The moment i saw him i just fell in love with this guy. He's really a good looking guy and the body is really awesome!!! So he brought me upstairs ask me to shower and started the best massage i had in my entire stay in Bangkok. He's really good of what he does and he know's what his doing. After the massage he literally bring me to heaven. SUN is the best so far for the massage and after massage. I didn't expect that coming SUN you really did a good job. He's very sweet and passionate and it was very intense. I even asked for his number and politely give it to me.. Hell yeah im probably go back in this spa again because of SUN. Btw its my nth time visiting bkk and tried almost every spa in bkk but this is so far the most clean, legitimate and awesome experience for me.. Don't waste your money to other spa i guarantee you guys you'll enjoy this one same as i did. Btw i think massage boys also has the right to choose client. You can't blame them if they choose client too because they are just humans. Same as you guys who wanted to get a handsome massage guy. Yeah you're right when you say you pay them but please be considerate, they also have feelings. I'm a legit customer just saying.“

    “All I can say is I've experienced a few massage places with the extra service and being in Thailand why not? I will say this I stopped at this particular establishment and I chose the masseur "WIT" he was a gentleman and kind and just an amazing experience hands down. If you are in need of something more then just someone faking there way to an extra service completion then this is the guy for you. He cares and it's rare to come across someone that is truly doing what they are blessed at doing but he's the genuine article. Like he actually is an exorcists and he strips out the bad and feeds the body good vibes and energy. I usually tip the minimum but he got an extraordinary tip from me which I'll keep private for him. But you know what I mean. Hands down best massage in the gay venue of massage places. Get full body scrub and oil massage. It what I got and I'm glowing.“

  42. Five Star Massage Treatment - A must when in BKK

    “Its my second time here in BKK and have been massage/spa hopping on my five-day vacation. I tried other massage house like V-Club and Hero but to Baantewa is the five star of all massage house I've been through. It was 4pm when I reached the shop and I welcome by the receptionist. He handed me two booklets, one for the services and another for the masseur. I decided to take a body scrub with aromatherapy massage and picked Sun based on the pictures. A friend staying and working in BKK wanted to meet me for snacks and stories and I have to cancelled the booking. I promised to return and I did. When I'm initially picked Toto thinking Sun (who is the most in demand there) wasn't available but Toto is yet to finish and I saw Sun inside the room at the back of the receiving desk. So, I turned Sun. He lead me upstairs to the massage room. He was very quiet and hard to communicate but he tried hard. He lead me to shower room and I shower solo and get back to massage table. He started the body scrub and lasted for about 45 mins. He asked me to shower and started the aromatherapy massage. I have learned throughout that he felt bad to me when I left the first time thinking that I don't like him. I apologized and ask him what can I do to make up. He said nothing. I was thinking that Sun is hard to please and turn diva on me. But as we go along we get together and I think my apology was finally accepted. Sun, I can say is very professional as he never cut short the massage even though he admitted he felt bad to me. Both body scrub and aromatherapy massage were very good. The best I received when I am BKK compared to V-Club and Hero. When in BKK in May or June, I will make sure I won't waste money on other massage. I will definitely go back to Baantewa. I will get Sun, Toto and Touch. Kudos to the management and staff of this great massage house. Try for yourself when in BKK.

  43. Best to Make an Appointment

    “I went to Baantewa today looking for the 90 minute aromatherapy massage. I was a walk-in at about 2:00pm. One of the massage therapists, Dan, introduced himself and said that treatment was 750 Baht and that the minimum tip for the masseuse was 1000 baht. Dan told me that he was available and 5 other men including Sun, Toto, Max and Chart. I asked for Sun and when Dan went to get him he was told that my 90 minute time will overlap with an appointment he already has. I then asked for Toto and ran into the same issue. I felt bad not picking Dan who was relaying all of this information but the other guys are what I preferred. I then asked about Max who looks the youngest in the photo book. He was available. Yay. I was led by Max to the room to take off my clothes and wrap a towel around me and was led to the shower room. I took a shower solo and then went back to the massage table and laid down. He didn't ask me what I needed so I just went with the flow. It was sensual throughout and I liked it. After I dressed, I went downstairs and paid the 750 baht to the desk guy and then gave Max the 1000 baht tip. I liked it because it was a legitimate massage with the sensual element which I was looking for. They gave me a stamp card and after 6 massages I get a free one. I plan to go back each day but will call ahead to see if one of the other guys is free. I like a variety.“

  45. Pleasant experience

    “After reading all the reviews here and some slightly shady masseur-naming posts... so, long story short, i went today around 2pm... and as a reference, it was my first rub-n-happiness adventure... anyway, after reading all the comments here, i decided to go... it was fairly easy to find, and it is not right in the Silom area i.e. nobody waves pamphlets at you.... and after i walked into an "empty" area, i was greeted by a handsome fella... we smiled and nodded, you know, the usual social crap... the handsome dude presented me with the "menu" and the "options" for massage... so i picked the 120 mins body scrub + aromatherapy ... and i picked CHART on purpose after reading all the comments here... the handsome dude turned out to be SUN and he was shocked to see me pick CHART even after he said he was available... another long story short... CHART gives a great massage and he is a super sweet man... i think he was shocked someone picked him over SUN, esp. when it was not busy... but long story short, CHART was a very sweet man, quite lacking in English but i managed to communicate with him... he was attentive and even "bathed" me in the after-shower... anyway, as a recap, SUN looks super yummy in person, Toto was quite booked, CHART isn't your typical pretty guy but gives a great massage and is a kind and sweet man and well-equipped if it's available... and CHART never mentioned once about the mandatory "tips". to me that alone deserves more visit from me

    Yes, i was brought up to the 3rd (?) floor and my room had its own shower; early afternoon seems to have more options since it's not as busy; I got the "get 6 get 1 free card"... that's a lot for 3 days LOL

    Hope this helps!“

  46. Amazing experience

    “I've been here twice in the past week or so. Went without any expectations as I already have a favourite massage place in Bangkok and good rapport with the staff there, however I decided to give this place a go. Boy was I glad I did. The first time I went without a booking and from the three therapists I chose Chart. His massage technique was superb and hit all the right spots. He was eager to please and very polite. Some deep tissue work and I left feeling like jelly. It was THAT good.
    The second time I went I made an appointment before going, but my chosen time was not available as it was a 'busy' time, so I decided to go at 8pm. It is always a touch and go decision, because the guys could either be very tired already (especially the popular ones), or they could have been worked up the whole day that they're eager for 'release'. Biting the bullet, I chose Sun, and lucked out. As mentioned by several other reviewers, he was very attentive and super accommodating. With a rock hard body without an ounce of fat, a charming smile and a winning personality this guy is an all-rounder. His massage technique was sensual and the most important factor was the comfort of the client. The massage ended explosively for both of us and afterwards he gave me a rundown in the shower.
    Overall, I have been to spas with better facilities in Bangkok, but so far I have really enjoyed my visits to Baan Tewa. Go try it out for yourself!“

  47. Great experience

    “I visited in the afternoon after some problems trying to find it. I chose Toto and asked for a body scrub with an aromatherapy massage. Toto was very professional and thorough with the scrub and gave me a good firm massage. Overall the massage was not sensual but really excellent. Toto was very attentive throughout. Definitely the highlight of my holiday in Thailand and Toto was the star.“

  48. 2nd time was bad

    “It was my second time on 18 Nov 2015.

    The person who greeted me when I reached was Max, and to my surprise, he did not smile or even nod at me. He just passed me an album, introduced himself as Max, and told me who were available at that point of time - himself, Sun, and Chart.

    I chose Sun, because he seems to be wildly popular based on reviews here. He does ooze sex appeal, and I was looking forward to a pleasant experience with him.

    The massage was alright, nothing very special. Sun was very quiet throughout. So quiet that I think i fell asleep halfway through the massage... The other places that I have been to seem to have masseurs who will exchange pleasantries throughout the massage, but Sun was not "sunny" that day, perhaps. Or he just didn't like me as his customer. [In my earlier review titled "A pleasant experience", I had initially wanted to choose Sun, but he brushed me off, saying he could not serve me the full 2 hours, as he had an appointment. After my second (this)encounter with him, I am inclined to think he does not appreciate me as his customer. I don't like the fact that he seems to want to "choose" customers, instead of getting chosen by them.

    It was disappointing, really - all the more so with my choice of a masseur that seems to be so popular, but did not even provide me with good service.

    I did not feel welcome, and I couldn't wait to leave.

    Next time I go back, I shall ask for Toto or Chart - the latter was at least smiley when he presented me with a cup of beverage...“

  49. Intimate place

    “A very cozy place which I'd say is quite easy to find. Selection of masseurs is through a photo book which has its disadvantages as pics on their file are just poor proxies of the real guys. When I was there, less than half of those on file were available. I had a great masseur (skillful all around) but if he wasn't there I don't think the others available on the day would have been 'my types'. Negotiations for 'additional services' were super easy - just ask the guy what you like when it comes to that. Great value.“

  50. Excellent Experience

    “I went to Baantewa at 5:30pm on 04,October which is a raining day. It's a quiet and cleaning place. This is my first massage men by men. I'm a little nervous at beginning, but relax after a while. I choosed Toto to do massage for me. He is more handsome than the picture and he is the total style I like. The massage is professional and make me feel good. He is so kind and lead me to find ATM I need when I went out. This is my best experience in my Thailand travel. Toto, wait me, I will come back to visit you, because I love you very very much!“

  51. Great experience

    “I got there about 8 in the evening (note: hard to find if not familiar with Bangkok- look for the Bank of China building, behind it) and was told only one masseuse was available- I lucked out and got a great guy, Sun. I was very impressed by the quality of massage I received. He made sure I was comfortable the entire 2 hours! He has great technique, I asked him to go harder though.

    Highly recommend this business.“

  52. Impressed!

    “I wasn't expecting much from male masseurs based on my previous experiences. It's either they are good in massage but not good looking or I chose the good looking one but so so massage. I chose a good looking one as I prefer to expect less than more. His name was Sun. He came inside the room wearing only his undies and man his rock hard bod made me drool especially when I saw his behind. He started with light touch and stroke while using oil. His strokes were just right, not too deep but not too light. The massage lasted for an hour and a half as advertised and didn't expect much with the happily anticipated ending but boy Sun was full of surprises! Will definitely come back to see him! Polite, manly voice and sweet!“

  53. Fantastic Experience

    “A bit searching to find it, but it is it worth!
    The best I found till today, last Friday!
    The place is very nice, clean.
    The masseur Touch was excellent.
    He knows what to do to have a satisfied client .
    I want to go back today, I hope he is available!“

  54. Very Good

    “Location: Very accessible walking distance from BTS Chong Nonsi; behind Singapore Embassy. Place is very quiet and not crowded. Situated among residential houses so quite discreet if you are a bit shy
    Spa: small but clean. Rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors need to share shower room/toilet
    Masseur: I have read about Max from other reviews so I'm glad he was available so I chose him. He is very handsome and sweet. I opted for Aroma Therapy massage so I was expecting fragrant or herbal scents but did not smell anything. His massage skills are okay. Although I was quite turned off by his constant reminder to give him extra tip and seemed he was kinda rushing to finish it already.
    Overall: I will definitely come back ;)“

  55. Wow 5**

    “Well "wow" is the word I would use to describe this place,
    I'm not out and I'm 22 years old, I'm an OK good looking guy so was a little unknown how I would be treated.

    I was also worried this was my first experience in this type of massage.
    This is the perfect place very safe, very good if you haven't got the confidence to go to the other place right in the heart of the gay scene!
    If your lost to find it, get in a taxi and ask for the Singapore embassy it's just behind there.
    Great location not to hidden but enough to feel at ease walking there.
    Once I got inside I felt relaxed and at ease, they brought me water and asked if I had booked.
    I said no and asked who was free. I ended up with I think he's name was Chang??
    (so sorry I couldn't remember his name. He was amazing) I asked a for him and he showed me to the room.
    He switched the aircon on and asked me if I wanted a shower, so I took a shower and returned to the room.
    He then gave me the best two hours of my life. Deep tissue massage really knew what he was doing!
    Then payment was simple and easy.
    Gave him 1250! Tip was my last day and He was more than worth that.
    However there all happy with the minimum 1000 tip.
    A must must try. Showers, aircon, great guys, Small hidden and perfect!!!!!!“

  57. Great massage

    “I enjoyed very much the massage with the handsome guy, I had on this massage. I am definitely a regular here so the guys who always entertain me always so charming to me. I will go back again and ask for this guy to massage me. I think I am selfish that I don't want to share his name. He is very good. Enjoyed the massage very muchhhh.“

  58. Excellent massage

    “Visited Baan Tewa recently. I had read reviews of massages by Sun and Max but when I saw their photos I realised they were very young men and chose instead an older man - Chart - who gave me an excellent deep massage - and then another half an hour of deep tissue massage and head massage. Excellent service and friendly environment. Recommended“

    “Went today sat April 11th at 6pm. Nobody was in reception so I waited 2 mins and called on the phone.
    Then a guy in glasses come out without saying anything or even sawasdee handed menu to me. And he standed back few feet away. Didn't offer anything, didn't say anything. So I looked at him and said "I changed my mind" and I left.
    Are they really an "angels", I didn't treatment like that in Thailand. I'm in shock.“

  61. A pleasant experience

    “I had a late flight today (16 Mar 2015), so after I checked out from the hotel, I decided to pay Baantewa a visit - My maiden one to the place, since I had some time to spare.

    I took a taxi from Chong Nongsi, and paid about 60 Baht for the ride. I was able to locate Baantewa after about 20 mins. Question: why do taxi drivers in Bangkok not drop you off at the doorstep of your destination? Anyway, back to my experience.

    The reception area was nothing fantastic - the decor and couch and chairs looked pretty sorry for themselves, but at least, I was greeted with a brilliant smile by the person at the reception counter. He was tall, muscular, and had a lovely smile.

    He told me to sit down on the couch, and brought me 2 things: a photo album of the masseurs, and a signboard with the fees of services provided. Flipping through the album, a guy caught my eye. His picture was on the last page of the album, and his name was Sun. When I pointed out my choice of masseur to him, his response: "Me?" I was taken aback slightly, as I had not realised that the guy at the reception counter was the one whose picture had caught my eye. He, I sensed, seemed a bit reluctant to be chosen by me; however, he soon recovered and asked me what I would like to have done.

    I had read from Baantewa's website that the Body Scrub and Aromatherapy Body Massage was 1200 Baht, which was also on the signboard, so I told Sun I would like that. He seemed uncomfortable, and finally told me that he can't serve me for 2 hours, as he had an appointment soon. Not sure if that was true, or he just wanted to choose his customers. Anyways...

    I then chose Max - I had seen his picture, and was not particularly taken with him; however, I had seen his name mentioned in previous reviews, so he was my second choice. Sun acknowledged my choice of Max, and disappeared, reappearing 10 seconds later, telling me that Max was also not available. Well... I asked who was available, and he brought this guy forward.

    He was slightly muscular, and had a cute smile. His skin was fair and smooth, and his cologne appealed to me, so I agreed to be served by him. Upon enquiry, this guy was Toto, whose name had also appeared in previous reviews. I secretly heaved a sigh of relief - I wasn't sure what kind of service I was going to get initially, and was relieved I at least got someone mentioned in a review.

    He started with the scrub, which was almost a massage in itself. In the middle of the scrub, he excused himself, and came back bearing a tray with a glass of warm water, and a container of Halls candy. He said that the warm water would help soothe the tickle in my throat and the Halls candy would clear the blockage in my nose - I had been sniffing and coughing since the beginning of the scrub. I was impressed and touched. He had shown that at least, he was a kind and caring person. The scrub continued, and I nearly melted under the gentle and soothing movements of his hands.

    The massage came afterwards. This time, he used more of his elbows. Slightly forceful massage, if you think you prefer that. Throughout the massage, I could hear him breathing heavily at intervals, which told me he was really putting in a lot of effort.

    Do pay the place a visit, and remember to ask for Toto. I will definitely go back.“

  62. Angels and heaven do exist

    “After Sun/Tawan massage was a failure, I went to this spa. No appointment and I was lucky to enjoy. Went for 1.5 hour Thai massage and done by Sun. Perfect pressure and strokes for me. Kept asking if I was OK. Also private shower. I accidentally left my cross necklace at the spa and they returned it.

    Will definitely return.“

  63. Best Two Hours!

    “Was there today and was presented with two masseurs to choose from. Glad I picked my guys of choice and the entire experience was awesome. He started with some presses to get me relaxed and after 15 mins he started the bodyscrub. That lasted for a good 30 mins and then it's oil massage. His strength is just nice and his baby smooth hands mixed with oil is heavenly as he slide them to ease away all the tension from the week. What made it all so special is his smile throughout the entire process. His name is Sun. And I almost touched paradise....“

  64. Excellent

    “Dropped in at around 9pm, and had two masseuse to choose from. Tried going with the tip of one of the previous reviewers, and asked who gives the best massage, but the guy at the counter said that they are all well trained. In the end, I went with Max and didn't regret it. He really did a great job at kneading my body from the back (and more). I'll definitely be going back again before the end of my stay here.“

  65. Okay spa

    “Went with a friend in August. No selection of masseurs, although we went at 3:00 PM as they told would have more. Luckily the masseurs are good. Just one room has shower, the rest all need to share with others outside. Saw other guess just wrapped a towel walking around. Not bad, but others are better.“

    “The guy Sun is the one to get. Very friendly, very sexy, speaks English! The welcome guy taking the orders at the front was like a zombie with no emotion but I guess that's not important. Massage was good, I wish there was a bit more to the Thai massage part, but the pop massage was glorious.“

  68. my favorite place in bangkok so far

    “I'm an American living in Bangkok. I've been to most of the shops in town. I've had countless bad experiences - especially among the tourist-only ripoff shops around Silom area. Baan Tewa I picked at random one day because it's close to my home. So easy to get to by BTS too. I have had great massages and great 'finishing touches' every time I've been there. I've been there about 6 times at least by now. One thing I've learned is the ALWAYS ask (at every shop!) three things: (1) Is he gay? (2) Is he 'compatible' with my preferred treatment? and (3) Which one gives the best trained massage? Many times (at other shops) you'll get 1 or 2 of these items, but not all 3. For example, you find out he's straight. To be clear, I've always found all three at Baan Tewa. See my star rating.“
