First 15min of the 30min footmassage the massage was relaxing. Until 3 noisy Chinese women entered the shop. They ware very impatient. So our massage ended at 25min so they immediatly could help the impatient ladies.

Thai-riffic massage
Oct 2018 • Friends
My friend and I had both arrived in Bangkok that afternoon and were feeling weary before we stumbled across Ruamm and decided to get a traditional Thai massage. It was both of our first time so we didn’t really know what to expect, but I really enjoyed it and felt relaxed the whole time. I did laugh a lot but the masseuse was very nice and light-hearted about it so hopefully she didn’t think I was being too rude! Some people have complained about the chatting between the employees but I didn’t feel like it was a problem as it was infrequent and quiet, and at times they spoke to us or it was between another masseuse and her client.

Had another great massage
Jun 2018 • Solo
Was back again in Bkk and enjoyed a couple of massages at Ruamm. Foot and leg is excellent value, and finished with neck and shoulders. The guy I had used just enough pressure to make me really feel it, without it being painful. An hour later I was feeling great!

Terrible experience!!!
May 2018 • Solo
I just had a terrible experience in Ruamm. I am a very patient person and would have normally let it go if the massage is not up to par. However, this time I was so pissed off that I did not finish the full hour. The therapist was constantly babbling with the other therapists and despite telling her that I have a stiff neck and she needs to put more pressure on my back she has the audacity to smirk and cajole me as if I was a child.

First off I was not feeling good already, the pressure was so soft as if she was massaging a baby despite telling her to put more pressure and to make the situation worse was that in the middle of the session she covered me with a towel and left without informing where she was going. It took her more than 10 mins to come back and did not even apologize despite seeing that I was about to get up and change. Then the chatting which was so annoying that I just had to leave.

I paid the full hour and told the lady at the reception how bad it was but maybe she didn't get it. Go somewhere for the massage, it was a total waste of time!!!

Small but comfortable environment, professional masseuse, excellent experience!
Mar 2018 • Friends
The place noticeably tries and succeeds in being nicer then the majority of its contemporaries in the surrounding area, offering a more spa like experience with sensory calming background music, cool fragrant air, comfortable chairs and/or floor beds for the full body massages which are conducted upstairs. The environment provided does much to ease you into a state of relaxation only sometimes being interrupted (if you are downstairs for the foot and leg treatments) by customers coming in from the noisy road outside enquiring within for availability but this is occurred few times and only momentarily.

I had the foot & leg message and full body massage on separate occasions by the same masseuse and was greatly impressed with the service received. She was polite, observant and took pride in her work. My masseuse was older than the previous therapists that I had had in other locations and she seemed to apply less pressure as a starting point than the other locations I had visited which I appreciated as by this point I was a bit softer and probably more pliable than I had been at the start of my trip but she could and would have used more pressure had I requested it. For my full body massage my masseuse even got up and stood on me, gently changing her footing to apply pressure to different areas which I didn't realise until i happened to glance up and saw her hand on the wall to steady herself. This clearly was a judgement call made by her, as she was small and unlikely to hurt me and my friend who was also getting a massage at the time did not receive the same, but it really worked on my lower back well and was welcomed.

The prices were comparable to most of the places for the area despite, in my opinion the experience offered here being nicer and more holistic with the trade off being that if you go in a big group they may not be able to see all of you at the same time due to the smaller size of the location. Additionally they did offer a properly focused sports massage as well as generally more choice of massages than a few of the other places in the locality offered more than the standard full body, foot, manicure, pedicure etc. Unfortunately, I was unable to experience due to time constraints but would happily go back there based on the two experiences I had.

I had a great time on both occasions valuing the massages I received and I would recommend you consider this place if ever you are in and around the Khao San area and want to burn 1-2 hours or so in a relaxing way.

If you like pressure, this is the one you've been looking for
Nov 2017 • Solo
This is my favorite spot for massage, period. I like a lot of pressure, and ended up getting 3 different people the 3 times that I went. All were excellent.
They offer an hour long sports massage for $700 baht that's everything I've ever wanted a massage to be. The foot massage is also fantastic.
I miss this place now that I'm back in the states. I wish I'd gotten more massages here!

Extremely bad!
Oct 2017
This was a terrible experience! If I could give minus points I would.
As a flight attendant I have been to Thailand many times and had countless massages but this has never happened to me before.
I came in because of the reviews, from the beginning the staff were shouting to each other from the staircase which is not very pleasant during a relaxing massage. My masseuse was laughing and shouting to her friend while I was laying on the bed, she did not even try to pretend to massage me, she just poked me with her elbow. I got so annoyed that I got up and left in the middle.
The staff are not professional at all, I tried to ask if I can get a bed with a hole and she just grunted at me to lay down.
Very bad experience. Would not recommend this place.
