From the moment the door is opened and your greeted by the owners you know they care about their customers. It was welcoming explained the various options and packages and do a smell test on the oils and cream to best suit your desire.
I recommend a facial if you have never had one before, and the 2 hour massage was simply divine.
A truly great experience, a place not to mixed when next travelling to Samui.

I highly recommend the Emerald Green Mens Club for a relaxing and professional (and legit) massage. My husband and I often get massages when we're away on holiday, and the massages here were by far one of the best we've ever had. The massage studio is very clean, quiet, private, and well appointed by western standards. I opted to be picked up from my hotel which was a smooth and easy ride to the facility.

On arrival, Bruce (the co-owner) and his staff gave us a warm welcome and assessed what targeted therapies we were looking for. He reminded us to expect a professional massage experience (no funny business guys!).
I opted for the foot peel and the 120 min Terminator massage. The massage therapist was a professional, cut Asian male with a gentle personality. He was very meticulous and periodically checked in with me to ensure the pressure was just right and took the time to make sure all my knots were gone. This massage was not a rush job and neither did he watch the clock - the focus here is on quality.
I would definitely get a massage here again the next time I'm in Koh Samui. This massage experience was a great way to unwind in such a gorgeous setting.

Bruce and Mark run an excellent spa focused on delivering spa services for men by men. We were met by Bruce for each of our sessions (we had two 150 minute massages that combined Thai/1 hour and oil/90 minute techniques). Our masseurs (Boy and Zee) were very well trained and left us in a state of bliss.

Showers are very clean as are the rooms and entire facility. Bruce ensures that you understand the massage choices, communicates instructions such as pressure preferences, and greets you after the massage to ensure your satisfaction. Excellent spa -- kudos to the staff as well as Bruce and Mark.

In much need of a massage, and reading these reviews, I was prepared to pay Emerald Greens very high prices. However this wasn't a satisfactory massage experience. What I received was a young inexperienced guy smearing coconut cream all over me. In all fairness I think it depends on which masseur you are assigned, as my partner attended at the same time and said his was average but relaxing. Sorry guys, I wanted to support local gay business and wanted this to be good, but it wasn't up to par this day.

Hello James We are disappointed to read you were not happy with your massage in our spa. Normally we are in our business on Samui but at the time of your visit we were not on Samui. Reading your comment on Trip Advisor we immediately phoned our staff in an attempt to understand what the problem was. Upon our return talked with them further in an effort to try to understand why you were not pleased with your massage. The masseur in question is some what baffled by your comment and is not sure why you were unhappy with his massage. He tells us he did ask you in the early stage of your massage if it was OK and you replied yes. He further explains you were asleep – and snoring (both perfectly OK) for most of the massage and he had to wake you to ask you to turn over so he could massage your front. The massage of the back is 60% of a conventional massage so you were asleep for the majority of your one hour massage. The masseur and spa manager were embarrassed and upset to tell us that as you left the spa you said the massage was “not good”, you paid significantly less than the advertised price for our full hour massage which you have taken full advantage of and walked out the door; without explaining or discussing with him or the spa manager what we first read on Trip Advisor was your disappointment relative to your expectations. We understand your partner was happy with his massage and paid the full fee. In your comment here you describe the masseur as “inexperienced”. This could not be further from the truth and we are obliged to defend a trustworthy and skilled member of our staff. This valued staff member is a consummate professional, fastidious in all aspects of his professional life including the massage and customer care services he provides. His knowledge, skills and quite professional manner make him a sought after masseur; frequently requested on referral or by repeat customers both within our spa and in 4-5 star Samui resort spas with whom we have contracts. It is inconceivable to us and his colleagues he would ever, or indeed could, give a massage such as you describe where he was "just pushing the cream around your body". We note from Trip Advisor several other customers in our spa around the time you and your partner were here presenting reviews of our spa/staff/services, including highly complimentary reviews by customers, who would be happily described as 'spa addicts' and were massaged by the same masseur as yourself with complete satisfaction of his skill and quality of a professional service. Over many years our business has been built on providing consistently excellent massage and body treatments. To achieve this we are entirely confident our trained, professional staff share our vision to provide a high service standard at all times and for which we happily remunerate them well. We are sorry James that in your opinion we did not meet your expectations but pleased your partner was more satisfied than you with his massage. Despite this we hope you both enjoyed your time on Samui.

We recently visited Samui, Thailand. The hotel we stayed in was in Bophut. Fortunately, afew kilometers away from the crazy tourist strip of Chewang Beach.
We discovered in the gay tourist publication, OUT Thailand, there was a Mens club call Emerald Green.
We were greeted by the owner, Bruce, an expat Brit. The reception was very neat and clean and Bruce offered us a drink and refresher towel as he explain the different massage options to us.
As we had been in the sun alot of the day, we chose the coconut milk massage rather than the fragrant oil option.
The masseurs showed us through to a changing area, where we locked our clothes etc in lockers and changed into a sarong. Then led into our individual massage room which were clean and tastefully decorated and subtlety lit with a massage mat on the floor.
The next 1.5 hours, using coconut milk I experienced the most relaxing yet quite physical Thai massage I had ever had. From the tips of my toes to the top of my head, I had my muscles kneaded and manipulated in such a professional and experience way. I could have not been more satisfied.
As a bonus with the option chosen, we also received a complimentary15 minute cleansing facial.
The overall experienced left us feeling clean, relaxed and was a very good value in a clean, well managed establishment.
I believe I could not have experienced a better massage in Samui.
I recommend Emerald Green Mens Club for any guy who wishes to experience a professional massage given by another guy.

We booked to go to the Emerald Green Spa last week via email and received our booking confirmation. We ought to say that this actually wasn't the first spa we had intended to go to. We had taken a walk the day before to the Mekkala Men's Spa as it was a little closer to where we were staying. It was our intention to try a couple of the gay spas and although we knew that the reviews all indicated that the Emerald Green was the best, the Mekkala was a little cheaper so we thought we would try that one first. We couldn't even go in when we got to the Mekkala spa as it was nothing like the website - literally a dilapidated shack that looked completely un-inviting. It just looked dirty and almost like it was derelict. There are no pictures of the establishment on their website - we realised why!

We decided that the Emerald Green just HAD to be better lol.

When we arrived we realised why Trip Advisor has such amazing reviews of this spa. It looked really smart and welcoming from the outside - and if at all possible even better inside. We were welcomed at the door by the charming staff. Although the owners were away at the time, the staff did them proud and introduced themselves and gave us refreshing cold towels that had been infused with essential oils. We were also given cool water which was just what we needed after a hot walk. Next we were introduced to the treatment and oil / cream options. It was hard picking as they all smelt so amazing! Eventually we settled on the oils we liked best and chose a 2 hour oil massage each. The 2 hour bookings came with the option of either a refreshing 15 minute mini facial or a foot treatment. We went for the mini facial.

Next we were taken to a changing area. We were really impressed that they provided our own personal lockers with locks on to keep our personal items in during the treatment. We changed into lovely sarongs and had fresh towels given to us so we could take a shower to freshen up before our treatments.

After the shower we were led into a couples room which was really lovely. It had dim mood lighting, relaxing music and smelt fab.

Our masseurs were 1st class - Khun Yu and Khun Tao. If we could take them home with us we would as they are the most professional, perfect masseurs that a guy could ever ask for.

Our massages were so relaxing and we have to say that the masseurs really were incredible in what they do - we felt like they genuinely loved caring for us - not that it was just a job which you can feel in some some spas. They were really sensual but totally professional. We have been to spas all over the world and have to say that it is without doubt the best.

After our treatments we took a shower and went back to the changing room. It had little thoughtful touches like individual sealed hairbrushes, deodorants etc so that we had everything we could have needed. We were then given tea to relax with before deciding to book straight away for our next session! We got a 15% discount from our treatments when we booked up for our next session which was amazing value.

So now we have been 3 times and have booked again to have more treatments tomorrow! I expect we will book more sessions tomorrow as we want to take advantage of using such a beautiful spa as much as we can before we have to leave the island.

If you are looking for a spa whilst in Samui and want the best experience money can buy (with adorable cute masseurs) do not hesitate - don't even bother trying the others - just go straight to the Emerald Green! If you delay you will just kick yourself for wasting your time (and money) elsewhere. They ARE the best and it's obvious why the reception has so many awards on show.

If on the other hand you don't want a massage and just want a happy ending in a tin shed for marginally less money then maybe it won't be for you lol.

Thankyou thankyou thankyou to the best spa ever x

Ps .... We hardly ever write Trip Advisor reviews - but honestly we just had to tell everyone how amazing this place is.

Taking my lead from positive reviews of Emerald Green Mens Club on various sites, I booked a Tom Yam body scrub and Terminator massage (120 min) combination for immediately after my arrival in Koh Samui from Milan – around 20 hours of travel from the Milan hotel to Samui resort. My body and mind were sore and muddled by the time I arrived at Emerald Green. I was greeted by Bruce who efficiently and clearly explained the process and treatment I’d be receiving, the associated costs and offered to arrange a car to take me back to the resort.

The facilities are spotlessly clean and welcoming, and my therapist, Khun Zee, charming, considerate and expert. The scrub was cleansing and rejuvenating and the massage found all the muscles needing work. By the end of the treatment, I was refreshed and ready for a relaxing holiday – with minimal residual jetlag. However, with forecast clouds and rainstorms during the week threating my vision of swimming and exploring Samui, I decided to compensate with indulgent body therapies with Emerald Green (turned out to be very good weather, allowing me to do all I wanted). I had a facial and a second Terminator massage two days later and then another Tom Yam body scrub and Terminator massage on my final day in Samui. I was treated by two other therapists, Khun Joe and Khun Arm, giving me a very good experience of the treatment offerings and the men who deliver them. All three therapists are technically excellent and considerate of client needs; I recommend all three.

Perhaps the most significant thing about Emerald Green Mens Club is that it has developed treatments specifically for men and delivered by men – resort spas seem to see men as an afterthought to female clients. Whilst the prices are much more than the ubiquitous street-front spruiker massage places, and more than resort spas, everything about Emerald Green is directed to men, high quality, expertly delivered and is money very well spent. Congratulations and thank you to Bruce and Mark, Khun Zee, Khun Joe and Khun Arm.

Serious safety incident

Place is clean and owner very friendly. Prices are expensive by any standard minimum for and hour was $100 AUD and a compulsory $15 tip for the masseuse. Make no mistake here people this is a parlour where they give you happy endings. Curious no one else has mentioned it in there reviews ? Maybe that’s what people want ! Wasn’t why I entered the front door I can assure you. Read the reviews and thought wow seems like a very professional good place for a massage. It doesn’t take long for the hands to start wandering to places they shouldn’t . Not sure if this is legal but I thought it was disgusting. Never to return !! If that’s what you guys are looking for go for it . I am not judging just letting everyone know what this place is all about .

A fully qualified massage in Australia doesn’t even cost this much. Website is full of lies as well

Hello doody-foody. We are dismayed to learn you were not satisfied with your experience of our services. We are also dismayed you did not mention any of your concerns to us after your massage was completed. We are always there to talk with our valued customers after their massage or body treatments - to check how everything went and get feed back so we can further improve our services. We would like to point out that we are not a brothel and our staff are well trained professional masseurs - if anything ever occurs in the massage room that we do not allow then that is of great concern for us and we would want to know this from the customer at the time so we can address the issue. We have a great team and trust all our staff to provide the services we say we will provide. We would also like to point out that we do not have a compulsory tip - we give an indication to all our customers on our website and in person of a typical tip should they want to pay something to the therapist. Some customers pay less, some more, some not at all - it is up to the customer.

Attentive, friendly and responsive to every guest’s need from arrival to departure. Bruce is a gracious host, interested in people and very happy to share information about Koh Samui and surrounds. Masseurs, like most Thais, are highly respectful, gentle and friendly. Emerald Green Mens Club may be considered by some as slightly more
expensive, but in view of the impeccable cleanliness and value-added services, the premium is worth every penny. The attention to detail, like deodorant for after shower, a hair comb, hair gel and a delicious cup of ginger tea and home made biscuits complete the experience and makes it worth every singe one of the five bubbles.

This is now on our essentials list should we be back in Koh Samui in future.
