“The best of thailand right here”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Great decision to spent an hour or so here enjoying the massages. Very nicely done and authentic. Friendly atmosphere all round and well worth a visit. Do visit if you want a piece of Thailand to go home with.

“Beautiful Thai Temple, full of tradition and the Best Thai Massage”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This temple has it all !! Declining Buddha is very stunning. Beautiful Thai architect all around. Best Thai massage I have ever had. Best thing to go early in the morning. It is located along the Chaopraya river. I would say plan for a day trip, start off with Wat Pho, get an hour massage (This way you can beat the crowd and it is not too hot) followed by short river cruise, Amulet market and if time is still left add in China town. Don't need a tour guide for this, you can get away with some basic Thai words. All of these attractions are with in walking distance. If you are familiar, you can ask people around. Thais are very friendly and likes to help foreigners. Beware of Pickpockets (which can be non-thai people). There are also some scammers around, but if you already plan your trip ahead of time, should be a really great day in Bangkok

“A great massage”

Had a lovely massage here - definitely worth a stop if you get the chance! Had a foot massage and it was the perfect detox on a busy day in Bangkok

“Aaahh”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

The massage quality was excellent (and we had a lot of massages on the streets to compare this one to) and beautifully presented with top masseurs and of course in the grounds of the stunning Wat Pho temple.
Best advice - get there ahead of the masses, this place gets ridiculously busy. So it is nice to be greeted by fresh ready to inflict massive massage treatment on you

“Overrated”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Place is clean and staffs are friendly. Thai massage - pressing and stretching. You can choose between medium/ hard (toughness). Recommended time would be after visiting grand palace and wat po.

After 1 hour of Thai massage, I dint feel anything :( Given a choice I will not try again.
