My daughter and I went to the centre for a massage and the officer on duty asked if we would consider coming out to the prison (30 mins in taxi) instead. The cost is the same but involves a 4 hour investment. This proved to be a fascinating experience not to mention the best Thai massage ever. You have to pass through a lot of security, change into uniforms and walk through the prison to a large communal massage area with curtains for a little privacy although 2 hour massage is all done with clothes on. Girls were so very polite and this gives them not only constructive activity but also a little money for themselves. Highly recommend putting aside a day for this rewarding experience.

My partner and I each had a 1 hour oil massage. The venue was clean, and massage took place in a private room. They provided disposable underwear to wear during the massage. The masseurs were friendly and very professional.

Amazing work these women do for being in prison and a great rehabilitation program!

Kind and courteous they do great massages cheap at 200 baht for May 2019.

I had a foot massage and it was lovely (so much so I fell asleep!) Rude awakening though by a nonstop talking prisoner being a little rowdy next to me massaging another woman. However, my masseuse was so lovely and let me know if I felt any discomfort to tell her. They did also lock up your belongings in a locker for you if you ever wonder about theft!

It is a not private massage area so keep that in mind when you book. Also arrived at 11am but had to wait til 2:30pm to be served: no problem and we checked out the cultural center and Lanna folklife museum in the meantime!

Would gladly come get a massage here again :)

Their restaurant is also amazing and the best Khao Soi and mango sticky rice I had in Chiang Mai :) also the tea after is delicious

The prison offers programs to women, teaching job skills so that upon release they have opportunities to better their lives. The restaurant has good meals at fair prices, the coffee/juice bar has delicious choices and the massages are wonderful!

Prices are very reasonable. Just a foot massage is available but the full body, 1 hour is wonderful. The ambience, with gentle music and floral scent, is relaxing. The masseuses are polite and very thorough. Thai massage takes a little getting used to (vs. American style) but it will rejuvenate you!
