The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ari
Home to at least a dozen hip coffee shops, sophisticated boutiques and some seriously fine restaurants, Ari is the newest epicentre of Bangkok cool. Fleeing from the skyrocketing rents in Thonglor and Ekamai, many young urbanites made Ari their new home. This mostly residential neighbourhood outside the city centre isn't much of a trendy area on first sight, but if you scratch the surface of government buildings and noodle shops, you'll find out that there's loads of hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Bring a local friend or do your research on beforehand to avoid missing out on all the fun.

Glad I Visited
Jan 2019 • Friends
Interesting first time experience.

I think the swimming pool is currently closed, but I got to use the gym on level 3.

The onsen on the roof on level 5 was a nice place with lots of corners to sit and relax (in fact, level 4 has lots of such corners too).

The onsen water was warm and nice. Steam room and sauna were small but okay (there’s another steam room on level 4).

Visited on a Friday night. I’ll say the majority of the visitors are young Asians, although there were also mature men and non-Asians too.

IMHO, whether you are want to make some friends, or just relax alone, this is a nice place to visit for any gay or open-minded man.

The place feels safe and clean. You can exchange a wet towel for a dry one.

It’s easy to get to from the Ari BTS station. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

Do check out the FAQ section on their Facebook page - it contains lots of useful information if you are a first time visitor.

Go only if you are young and have a good bod.

The highlight of this place is its apparently newly-refurbished top floor which houses an outdoor Jacuzzi pool, a wet steam-room, a dry sauna, and plenty of lounge space with mattresses for people to laze around (and intentionally put out for orgies and group activities under the Bangkok sky).

Otherwise, the other main facility, which is the maze/dark room, is very mediocre cos there's not much of a distance/space to explore inside.

Getting busier now with lots of heartthrobs
Sep 2018 • Solo
I revisited Chakran Sauna in Aree suburb a couple of weeks ago during late afternoon.
Facility is still awesome, clean and well-hygenized.

Rooftop is excellent especially by twilight when you can enjoy cool breeze while lying naked with warm sunset caressing your uncovered body.
Onsen is on that rooftop equipped with large roomy futons and lukewarm bath outdoor.
Accompanying music range from Japanese pop music up to Chinese classical stringed instrument.
One more thing to your pleasure is the city scape. 360 degree view of the metropolitan allows you to see skyscrapers in all directions including the gherkin tower like the one in London.

More clients come here these days and most are good looking. Muscular are the norm.
One of the highlights are .. show by models in action around 7pm.
They are really in a good shape and handsome.
Only models play to one another first in exclusive space, then for a while they appear to public area for anyone to play along.

There are lots of cubicles to pick from, and nearly all are equipped with a big mirror on one side to show your own action.... Great feeling to be able to see yourself while in action.

Receptionist/Manager is RUDE!
Sep 2018 • Friends
We went here this month and got disappointed and disrespected by the treatment the recepcionist/manager of this spa. He accused us of not paying even if we explained that we just went to the bar to get the free drinks. We even showed our key for the locker which we wont have if WE DID NOT PAY! Well of course, we insisted that we paId already and when he checked, we really did. The point is, why not check first before accusing and giving a nasty attitude? Entrance is cheap so why bother entering without paying?

When he found out that we were wrongly accused, he didn't even bother to say sorry.

Crowd: Mostly asians
Facilities: onsen pool is just ok. Steam bath is sooo hot that you wouldn't last for 3 mins inside. Smell is not that good.

Please don't treat your customers with nasty attitude. Tourists would not spend lots of money for travel and not be able to afford your entrance.

Will we go back? Not sure, there are other spa with same features in BKK like Babylon so why bother going back if they won't change that attitude.

แวะพักหาที่่เงียบๆทำคอมเล่นยิมช่วงบ่าย ผ่อนคลายกับเสียงน้ำริมสระ หมดกังวลด้วยล๊อกเกอร์ส่วนตัว เสียงเพื่อนใหม่กำลังทะยอยมาจนเต็มห้องกิจกรรมสุดExclusive แอบไปพักสายตาใน dark zone ที่ที่ไม่เคยว่างเปล่า ทิ้งร่างไปกับออนเซ็นผ่อนคลายเบาๆในสไตล์ญี่ปุ่น เพลิดเพลินกับวิวดาดฟ้า ปลดปล่อยเต็มที่ในวงเพื่อนขนาดใหญ่
วันไหนแบตหมดแวะมาเติมพลังจากการนวดสุดอลังการ เผลอแปปเดียวนั่ง BTS ถึงบ้านอย่างรวดเร็ว พร้อมลุยงานต่อพรุ่งนี้เช้า...ไม่ได้โม้..อยากให้มาลองเองสักครั้งแล้วจะรู้ว่าที่รีวิวมายังน้อยไป
Stop by for the most pleasant environment to finish some work sheet tasks by the whisperring of pool sound or work out in the most private in the afternoon time, no worry by the private locker. A lot of new friends are coming to meet at the exclusive activities rooms or you can enjoy in thw dark zone which you will never be alone. On top roof onzen where you can sink yourself in to warn aroma pool among hundred shinning star above, just like you are at the top of the world. 180 degree wrapped around yourself by group of lad who you will never forget some gorgeous guys next to you. Boost up for the next day by an exclusive massage is a good idea which you can reach home in a few minutes by Bangkok Transportation System, hope you enjoy yourself out there

Chakran sauna
Aug 2018 • Solo
I was the first to go to the sauna. The first time I got there, which was Saturday, the restaurant had a party on the rooftop. I came to pay at the reception, then up to the 2nd floor, meet the lockers, customers today come to the bare, which I like very much. I went up to the 3rd floor of the store to meet the gym, which I stopped at the gym. I can say that the machine can be applied to the gym. Up to 4th floor I met the zone I like is room. Have a video open for the mood. The deck of this shop is Onsen decorated the Japanese atmosphere very well. There are so many wells in the pool.

Renovated with more active people
Jun 2018 • Solo
Chakran sauna has recently renovated its place, and now the rooftop is fully equipped with a real Japanese onsen bath beside a tiny drink bar (with complimentary mocktail) where your dress code turns into a nude theme.

Rooftop also provides lying space in nearly all corners open air. It's fun to play in public with lots of people while in action.
** Beware on rainy days. Spiral wooden staircase towards rooftop can turn slippery when wet.

Much frequented by foreigners especially Chinese.
Gym is in full for you to leisurely pump up your muscles before or after the action.

Note that Jacuzzi, steam and sauna on the ground floor next to the pool is now under renovation.
