Arrived receptionist and friend on their phones, little in the way of a greeting. Massage room cold although there was an electric blanket on the bed. Whole experience - bland. Wont rush back.

Had a wonderful back-shoulders-nek massage last night, while my boyfriend had a deep tissue massage. Both Thai masseuses really knew what they were doing! Came out totally relaxed & revived. Great value for the price & loved the heated matrasses.
