“Best massage of my life to date.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I was recommended this place from some friends of ours and i'd say most of these reviews do not do it justice at all. It is down the end of a small alley street behind the Meriden hotel and the Dusit D2 hotel. All the staff were so wonderful and gracious towards my partner and i that we ended up coming back three times and we left them a bouquet of flowers. My muscles have never felt better than after their massages, and i had a multitude of knots before i went in. I had the essential oil massage, traditional thai massage and traditional balm massage (this one in particular was very painful, at times excruciating as he hit many trigger points but exactly what was needed to fix my muscular tightness and pain). Make sure you ask for either Pond, Lek or Jay otherwise you may not get the most amazing massage of your life. Not a bad idea to book in advance either by phone, email or just drop in. THANKYOU ZABAI!

“Very relaxing!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

We both had an one hour Thai massage which we enjoyed very much! The price was very good: 199 baht for a whole hour of massage.

The therapists did their best to loosen our muscles and succeeded :-) we felt very relaxed afterwards and are planning to go back there if we find some time...

“Over rated”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Seeing the good reviews on Trip Advisor, decided to try. I took the traditional, rubbing, aromatherapy and facial massage. Low skills therapist. Place is on an unpleasant building on a busy street. Massage rooms are tiny, almost won't fit you and the therapist. Face down massage means caimbra on the neck, as there isn't a proper hole to put your face in. Same song playing for 3 hours. After rubbing took a bath on an electric shower in an unpleasant toilet. Little bit disgusting. Had the feeling of having massage in an old bad taste low skills massage place. My friend had massage with a good therapist, he says. But I recommend the U Chiang Mai Hotel Spa, definitely the best one in town.

“Excellent value for money - ask for Lek!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I booked the 2 hour 'Thai paradise' package for 900 baht...a steal! This involved and full body scrub, shower and an aromatherapy oil massage. Lek was my therapist. I had a very sore back after sleeping oddly on a hard bed, Lek picked this up immediately and asked if she could do some thai balm massage in this area. I agreed. She performed some very specific myofascial release on my back and arms and the pain and knots resolved!! I was very impressed. I would recommend Lek, zabai and wish them good luck for the future. Thanks.
