Owner description: Travelers don't need to splurge at 5-star hotels to get a premium quality massage. There are many massage places in Bkk. Some good, many many bad. Urban Retreat Spa never fails me. (While bigger name massage places do very often).

I must admit, I'm not much of a spa going type. However, on this recent trip to Bangkok, my partner was desperate for a soothing massage after a long hard day at the office (read: shopping). I called up a colleague based in bangkok and Urban Retreat Spa was highly recommended for its cleanliness, experienced masseurs and affordability (compared to... More

The therapist who served me was gentle because I think she knows whenever I'm feeling a bit painful as I rarely do massages. Agree with some of the comments that the counter staff don't give the welcoming feeling (purely for business), but the therapist made up for the shortfall in their service. Did the aromatherapeutic oil massage for 1 hour... More

Absolutely disgusted. I was a walk-in and ordered a 60 min Thai massage. There was nothing "Thai" about the massage except for 2-3 mins of stretching and manipulation at the very end in 4 different positions. The rest of the "massage" consisted of simply applying pressure to my legs and back. The truly disgusting part was the masseuse kept picking... More

The Thai massages are great , also the aromatherapy massages are great.The prices for the quality you get are appropriate. Make sure to call and book in advance otherwise you might get there and they will tell you they are full. I will go back there next time in Bangkok.

Nice and clean checkin area with space to sit down and to drink the "after massage tea". A impressive woman told me to follow her through several corridors. The massage area was in a basic dark lightening room, on a thin layer placed directly on the ground. I was surprised by this "underground" atmosphere (not bad, but like omg, how... More

Good location, clean and hygienic place. But I was not impressed by the quality of the massage. As two of us were there at the same time we had a room to ourselves. However the problem was the therapists kept on talking to each other which kind of disturbed the relaxation process. Also the actual massage itself was ok, but... More

I have been to many places around the world for having the Hollywood or Brazilian waxes. And I just.... found out that the Urban Retreat Spa@Asoke is the best place to get ourselves waxing without any nervousness. Thanks a million times to P'Kae, the lady who gave the wax treatment for me. Trust me!!! She has a freaking light hand... More

I've been going to Urban Retreat for several years and have never been disappointed, either traditional Thai or Swedish massage. The staff will always ask if too much or too little pressure is being applied. Clean rooms and atmosphere at reasonable rates. Highly suggest to book in advance if you plan to go in the evenings or weekends.
