This year marked the fourth time that my husband and I have gone to the Sabai Spa, located inconspicuously down a trendy little alley off Ave Cinco, between Calle 8 and Calle 6. There must be a reason why we return! First: the setting is awesome. We choose the couples massage palapa in the back garden. The peace and serenity... More

I was recommended by a friend to get a massage here. I didn’t have time for a massage the first time I got to Playa del Carmen, so I thought at least to check out the place and it was lovely. I went back the next day and got a deep issue massage in the Garden and it was fabulous.... More

This was our 2nd visit to Sabai Spa in 2 years. The 2 1/2 hour deep tissue massage plus reflexology and facial were great both times. This time we had Eddy & Elena. Both were very professional and excellent therapists. We opted for the garden area and think the session lasted closer to 3 hours. My wife counted at least... More

My husband and I had deep tissue massages two days while in Playa del Carmen at this facility. We both had a masseuse named Paty who was excellent. We also had Eddy and Eva who were good, but Paty was by far the best we have ever had.

We traveled to Playa this February for the second year in a row. I told my husband that it was my goal to get a nice massage while on vacation. I did a little research on line prior and decided on Sabai which is located right down on 5th Ave. The reviews from Trip Advisor of course helped with my... More

Had a deep tissue massage from Eddie and it was excellent. The space is not what you expect from a "spa" in the US. It is a bit rustic but for me that was part of the charm. Eddie combined deep tissue, sports massage and a lot of table stretching. Two of my travel partners and myself all saw him... More

I chose the outside area in the courtyard because it was way to chilly indoors and it was kind of neat to be outside. Eddie was available which was fine by me. The massage was going fine, relaxing and not to strong until Eddie decided to get up on the table and while massaging me I felt his Private parts... More

Now there are 2 locations along 5th avenue. Sabai and Zen. Both have the same people working, both have outdoor massage space. Still a very good price especially compared to the hotel and resort "spas". Very busy when we were there. Several couples coming in as we were leaving.

Very professional, great service, worth every penny! Had the Swedish massage with my husband, and we both loved it. Very affordable and will come back for sure.

We had a 1.5h couples massage last night by Freddie and another guy in the evening. The couples massage area is in the back -- beautiful, outdoors and spacious. The massage was phenomenal. Both guys were insanely well trained and professional. We got the deep tissue massage, and it was a combination of really intense sports type massage with stretching.... More
