Owner description: Aonang Haven offers Couple's Massages and Private Rooms. Our guests are those who enjoy a quiet space for relaxation and are respectful, considerate, and mindful of others. • Our massage rooms are designed to enhance relaxation through soft lighting and spa music. Standard massages are carried out in The Massage Room (see photos) at basement level where there are two sets of twin beds separated by curtains for privacy. For an even more pleasant experience, private massage rooms (for couples or ladies) are also available on the upper floors. They are available for an additional fee of 300 THB/room for 2 persons with minimum order of 1.5HR massage each. • As spaces are limited, a booking is recommended either in person at our reception (same day or advanced) or via online (at least 24hr in advance) to avoid disappointment.

“Very good massage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Saw the good rating of this place on Trip Advisor.
Went there and was immediatly impressed by the class of the place.
Was greeted with a glass of water while looking at which massage to choose.
Chose a traditional Thai massage - 1 hour.
The massage was very very good and after I was finished a cup of green tea awaited me.
The place is - as said - very nice: clean and minimalistic. The music was low and in general the place was as a haven.

“Great Massage!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Came here for a Thai massage with friends. The Singaporean owner Andy is friendly and accommodating. Massage was standard to good by Thai standards in a clean and quiet basement room. Did not stay here but the place appears to be furnished in a modern, boutique style.

“Great Massage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Did not know about this hotel before we came to Ao Nang. The ambience of the reception is good with a friendly dog.

Love the massage- went for 2 consecutive days. My best Thai massage experience. Frelimo relaxed and good after the sessions- masseuse served with a heart .

“Best Massage in Ao Nang!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

I didnt stay at this guesthouse but I feel I need to write a review about it, actually I went there for their massage and it was heaven. This place is very tranquil, minimalistic and very clean, I've tried their Thai massage and the 3 hr package (in separate days), great deal and professionally done, they offered you a glass of cold water to cool you down before the massage and finish off with a warm herbal tea afterwards, and you will be surrounded by beautiful music during the massage. There's a therapist called "Emm" (not sure if this spells right), she gave the best massage I've ever had in Thailand, gentle strokes yet powerful acupressures, wish I had found this place earlier.. They also have a cute and very friendly doggie who welcomes every guest there. This is not just a great guesthouse with a massage parlor, it is a must go attraction in Ao Nang!

“Disappointed Massage! =(”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

Read the previous reviews, so we decided to try the massage @Aonang Haven.
They had recently renovated the place, therefore it is clean and nice.
My partner and I chose the Aloe vera full body massage, 1hr for 450baht/pax.
At that time, we were the only 2 customers. At the middle of the massage (while facing downwards), we could hear more customers coming in and passing by us.
After we were done with our back and asked to face upwards, to our horror the curtain was WIDELY open!!!!
Isn't it the most basic service and thing to do to have the curtain drawn at all times when there is customer having massage? Especially doing a full body massage???
Not only so, the massage was NOT enjoyable at all. We both felt that they just used the aloe vera gel to "smear" all over our body. No strenght was used or pressure applied on the accupuncture points. =(

Total disappointment!

The following is the management response from 25 May 2012. It is copied here after the review is moved correctly from Aonang Haven Guesthouse to Aonang Haven Massage:

We would like to thank you for your feedback, At Aonang Haven, we take all comments and feedback seriously as we continue to make Aonang Haven "The Best Place in Aonang to Rest.Relax.Rejuvenate."

We have looked into all your points discussed and have make an inquiry into them.

First of all, you mentioned that we had renovated therefore the place is nice and clean. We were very surprised by this assumption as we have not done any renovation work to the massage room except for the moving of some furniture. I am not sure if you would notice since this is your first visit.

Secondly, in the middle of the massage when you hear more customers coming in and passing you by, did you actually see who it was? In fact it was only our manager who had gone to the room to check and inform our therapists that there were to be two guests waiting in queue for the next 30 minutes until your session is completed. Your claim of the curtain being widely opened is questionable. It is standard operating procedure that curtains have to be drawn. They may be left open only at the foot of the bed to allow for ventilation. Before new guests are brought to the massage room, our therapists would always ensure that the curtains are drawn up. It is the basic thing to do regarding privacy.

We would however like to apologize that the massage did not meet your expectation. As what you have chosen is our Soothing Aloe Vera Massage, the technique used is always softer as this massage is targeted to relieve sunburn. The stronger massages would be the Thai Massage and our special Adventurer's Massage that uses technique targeting problem areas. To ensure a satisfactory massage, communication with the therapist is always open and we have had guests who have requested a slightly stronger massage for the same Soothing Aloe Vera Massage.

We always take great care in ensuring quality. In fact, I was even told by our therapist that as the weather was cold on the day of your massage that they have chosen to use Aloe Vera gel that was kept in room temperature and not the usual cooled ones from the fridge as they were concerned that it would be too cold.
