  1. O party on Jan 7, 2017

    “I went there as the O party sounds interesting, but I did not know the party exactly.
    The admission was 380 bht and it is slightly more expensive as it is a special party. They set 1400 bht admission for above age people.

    The party start at the bar area. The host explain both in English and Thai. Occasionally,in Chinese (I guess).

    They have performers, and eight of them showed the action show. In the crowd. There were more than eight people.

    Then, they said only naked can go upstairs, and we did so. There are action party!

    And Thai performers join it as well. The performer has an illuminating bracelet, so you can recognize them easily. Of course, you can enjoy with other participants.

    There are bright area and dark area, and some people are having fun in front of audience. The party time last only for an hour.

    Overall, it was very interesting, and I enjoyed.

    There were a few Caucasians. The body of customers were range, so it might not be fit.
    If you are top, you may enjoy a lot. If you are bottom, you need to brave enough to be open minded.

    Condoms and lube are provided and everyone follow safe style. At least, what I got were all with condoms.

    I felt they care about cleanness more, cleaning guys keep cleaning all areas. (edited!)“

  2. Avoid this place like the plaque

    “Today I was quite shocked to hear that they charge a 1400 Baht fee for over fifty year old customers for their Saturday night o- party, the normal entrance fee being 380 Baht. Last year their fee for over fifties was double the normal rate, this year four times.I emailed them last year and they assured me that all customers were welcome but in the light of their pricing policy this is a blatant lie.“

  3. Not Farang Friendly

    “The place isn't friendly to the customers. Starting from the callcenter and the staff who is working at the place too.
    They ARE NOT WELCOME TO FARANGS.
    Not clean. Smell of urine and only few guys there SATURDAY NIGHT 6-7 P.M.!!!

  4. Spectacular foam party

    “Was here for The Splash O-Party & Foam-O Party on October 29, my first visit to R3. Bar far the best sauna experience I've had in Bangkok and perhaps anywhere else. I strongly recommend it. Between 150-200 guys packed in one room with lots of action. It's almost surreal. Condoms and lube handed out at the door.

    As other comments below state, there is an age discrimination policy regarding the entrance fee. But without it, R3 wouldn't be the same. Plenty of guys are in fabulous shape, with 90% in their 20s and 30s. R3 has succeeded in creating a particular atmosphere and attracting a certain clientele, none of which would be possible with its entrance fee policy.

    Although I'm glad I went, readers should be warned that R3 - like it's sister Sauna Mania - is largely Asian for Asian (I'm white, with a beard, in decent shape, in my early 30s). Non-Asians - even if you're in good shape and young - may find the experience here frustrating, though action shouldn't be too elusive. I ended the night on a high note with a beautiful Thai guy with a gorgeous body. He was sitting alone upstairs. I approached him, starting chatting, and we took it from there (I was surprised I wasn't rejected).

    My advice if you're not Asian: Go during one of R3's events on Saturdays for the experience, but keep expectations low.“

      “I think I saw u order a drinks at bar - 5th floor. I drink Singha beer and chatting with my friend there. You look nice! No wonder you have a great time with good looking Thai guys!

      I agree that if R3 have no agish policy. They can not make fantastic atmosphere like this - crowded with young guys & in shape.“

  5. What an impersonal place

    “I am young (24) well built physique BUT I am interested in older mature guys. Why? They are mature in all ways. I cannot stand giggling young fairy princesses strutting their perfect little bodies but when they open their mouths "dumb" comes out. So I was shocked to see the utter age discrimination with entrance fees. Like a lot of comments say : go somewhere else ........ and I did and I was not sorry. If you cannot respect every gay person and their rights then I cannot support your place.“

      • Double fee

        “Went there with a friend last year, and showed the cashier my passport. It was very clear that I was 49 years and 5 month old. But cashier still charged me double amount entrance fee. They are just pure money hungry! “

    • Discrimination should not be tolerated

      “I agree with your review. Like Sauna Mania, this place has started a discrimination that is unprecedented. It is not enough for us young people to have fun among us and ignore the mistreatment of older gays. The reason is simple: we will ALL be old one day.

      Like "J" writes in "no more argument about age issue", let's ignore this place and go to Babylon and other good saunas that don't discriminate.“

    • Thailand will be replace by taipei

      “Age discrimination for what? So you can filter a handful of old well manner men? What's the point? I never seen in the past more than a handful of over 50 anyway. They don't go to places where people will not be interested on them. Stop discrimination and deal with bad karma.“

  8. Songkran 2016

    “I decided to go to R3 after a few of my friends told me that its d best place rite now.. And it is!
    The place is easily accessible using mrt, though u need to walk and be alert of the small signage.
    The place is looking new. As I went there during the songkran festival, there are so many guys. Extremely cute Thai and other Asians. They are all friendly, provided ur in shaped and most of them into other Asian. Sticky rice mostly. My advice .. Sauna is a meat market.. This place should be a miss if you are not lean/slim/tone/muscular or to d very least average. And yes they check passport to determine ur age, so pls bring in urs when visiting - or else 500b or more.“

  9. BKK visitor

    “The good: Modern, clean, very busy on event nights from about 8pm.

    The bad: Hard to find, discriminates and overcharges for Over 50, Thai prefers Thai here. Non-event nights are a waste of time. Several occasions I left without action.

    Additional comment: The Big-O and Bubble-O (foam) events can be quite wild, but for foreigners it can be frustrating to be rejected by so many Thais. Also very odd to have these events with a "compere" narrating in Thai, who also ends the event too early. As a visitor I was not made welcome by staff nor locals.“

      “I agree to all comments refering to this sauna as racist. Unlike in my experience in Alexander (Hong Kong), people here are way to choosy. Probably I got to see zero foreigners. Plus, the Thais whould even ask you where u from, then they'll ignore after cuz its proven ur not Thai.“

  10. New year eve 2016

    “It was my 2nd trip to R3 , the reason why I come to bangkok on NYE at d very last min.
    All i can say, it is the best sauna to have fun! I hooked up with a cute Canadian Chinese, then a hot Thai with 6 pax and finally another hot Thai. I was aftering one more guy, but he went back early, however we managed to meet again at mania the next day n hav so much fun.
    My advice-
    During special events -- come early! Like 6-8pm else there wont be any locker left. And its easier to use mrt ! Trust me! I used cab and the driver sent me elsewhere!
    This is d place for in shaped guys mostly asian/thais i wouldnt recommend u to go here if u are not.“

  11. Could Not Believe it

    “I was there just this past Friday Morning at around 1am till 5 am. First off the club was full of good looking Thais and a few Foreigners. Lots of endless walking around as usual when there are so many cute guys. I could not believe that the Toilets had no toilet paper! Been all over the world and this was a first. When I asked the guy said take a shower after you go to the bathroom. Come on. Common sense and Hygiene. There was no shortage of toilet paper in the booths though. That is just plain stupid. You could use your towel for cleaning after sex. Been to clubs in Europe, South America, Central America and North America. Never seen such a lack of common sense. I did have fun with one guy eventually but I did not find this club overly friendly. I am in shape too . Not a toothpick but well toned.“

  13. AWESOME. Hard to find.

    “GREAT sauna.

    Clean. Off course sometimes there will be paper and even used condoms around in the very dark areas as there is action - But its a clean place (I have seen many saunas in big European cities that was far less clean)! Reception area very nicely decorated. Plenty of shower facilities but missing soap dispenser (strange actually). Bare area with appropriate dim light.

    Decent sauna - not so big and to strong light for people to get into action. An actually kind of cool steam room - with a little kind of a maze. Steam room completely dark - a pity. It was too dark - very very dim light would be good and more enticing for the guys to play.

    There is a staff member in each floor. Thats good to ensure things dont get "to much". Staff is either dressed very lightly or naked. But cool actually with a goodlooking staff on each floor.

    Location. Really out of the way (far from Silom) and a little hard to find (stick to description - not the map). Very nice crowd - generally really good looking young Thai / Asians. I think I was the only westerner - if you are not into Asians this is not a place for you!

    Double charge if over 50 years - and you have to show passport. Who the hell brings a passport to a sauna??? But fine - come on. Whats all the fuzz about discrimination and all that. Give it a rest.

    This place apparently have an interest in attracting young local men - which suits me just perfect (I am 49 north European who like Asian).
    Its quite normal that young (locals) men dont have a lot of money - as well as most guys over 50 (or 40) are much better of, and thus can contribute a little extra (its not thousands of dollars we are talking about). I dont see the problem. If you see a problem then go somewhere else!

    Crowd. Lots of really cute thai/asians.

    Place is NOT suitable for elderly and out of shape people. Simply because:
    Location: its hard to find and you might need to walk around a bit (good lucking explaining where to go to a taxi driver...).
    The place: 6 floors with LOTS of stair (steep!!) to climb all the time to get around. If you are not young or in good shape I seriously think it will tire you out quite fast.
    The Maze(s). Very intricate mazes on all floors. You actually get lost in the beginning and thereby will do A LOT of walking around. Its fun (when you are in shape). Also the mazes are many places so narrow that a belly will have a hard time getting through - seriously!!!
    The crowd: I just don't think old or out of shape people will have a lot of fun there - its a younger goodlooking crowd.

    Service is really missing. No smile when arrived. Bartender is not smiling, but not unpleasant as such - just not smiling. Really ok - I didnt go to interact with the staff!!

    I DONT recommend this place for people who are not in good shape. Both because of the location and all the stairs, but certainly also because its a place for young guys who are likely to only want to play with more grown-up guys if they are good-looking with good a body (honestly).
    I have good looks and body and had great times with several really cute guys.

    I WISH i didn't go there only on my last day in Bangkok.

    I will certainly go back. I love the place!! And I love the crowd.... ;-) !!“

  15. Don't Assume they Care

    “The fact that the place discriminates against age by charging double on some days should be enough to tell you that the management only care about money. Customer satisfaction doesn't even enter into the picture so don't waste your time & energy getting pissed off. You are assuming that the customer has rights and the owners care. In both cases, you don't and they don't. Spend your money elsewhere and you will find friendlier people.“
