There are many traditional Thai massage shops. These are
generally not sex related massages at all, though some may extend their
services to a little hand relief. (Somebody on a forum said that 300
Baht will secure hand relief from practically every masseuse in Pattaya,
however if you don't ask you don't get)
massage parlours seem to advertise their wares with the term 'body
massage'. Perhaps they are better known by their customers as 'soapy
massages'. The basic idea is that you get a body massage lubricated with
lots of soapy water followed by a bout on the bed.
following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide
books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. All
contributors have a right to their opinions and will be posted even if
in disagreement with my views. And of course parlour owners may present
a rosy picture of their shops...so don't take everything at face value.

The prices vary depending upon the young lady but are from 1500 to

massage in the complex as well as games. The area can get very busy, as
can the girls.

Soi 2 parlors. Rooms are huge, with flat screen TV, large bed,
leather sofa, and extra large tub. An extra large rubber mattress
provides the post-bath fun. Covered BJ though.
Girls wear color-coded badges: Red badges are 1500, Blue badges
are 1800, respectively, for 90 minutes. There may also be
'superstars' available. Note there is dual
pricing going on with other customers being charged 1800 for red
badges and 2500 for blue.

Review from Dmitri, Dec 2007:
Overall Good Experience But...
Overall good experience but the service has some room for
Came early afternoon, almost no other customers and 20+ ladies.
Took a drink (60 Bt) and wanted to talk to a lady first at a table
(I've seen guys sitting with girls in Sabailand before).
The employee said it wasn't possible and I had to decide only from
what I see, which seemed a bit risky to me but I didn't want to waste
my trip there. The price of 2000 Baht was the highest I've seen. On
the good side, many ladies kept smiling and waving.
Finally went upstairs with my choice. She turned out a bit heavier
than looked when seated but very pretty face. The room had no toilet
attached, had to go to the end of corridor (didn't expect it for that
price). As I was heading for the toilet, an employee asked about a
lady drink. I didn't say yes but when I came back, he brought the
drink nevertheless and wanted me to pay. When he brought back the
change, he asked for tips in quite pushy way, which I found too much
and didn't give any. I told the girl I rather give it to her and she
was quite happy. The best thing - she was in a good mood and even
complained about her boyfriend hitting her. What came after was great,
no complaints. I tipped her 200 Bt and she asked nicely for 100 Bt
more, of course I didn't mind.
Nana Plaza March 2006:Saggy Experience
I enter and there is about 15
girls behind the glass and I take a seat on a couch and order a beer. I
look around and there are lots of smiles and I pick a girl who looks
like she has the biggest tits as I think this will enhance the
experience. We are off and I pay 2000 baht then up the stairs and into
the room. Now I expect a jacuzzi, but there's an air mattress in a
shower stall. She tells me to undress and I shed my clothes as does she.
Everything fell apart when her clothes came off. Saggy tits, c-section
scar and a flat ass. I wanted to put my clothes back on at that point
but felt it would be cruel and that they wouldn't give me my money back.

Top end soapy massage parlour. Prices by coloured badge in the

attractiveness. Perhaps the girls choose their own price level. Drinks prices are 120 Baht for water and 150 for a bottled beer.
Review from Liu, February 2014: Agency Girls
I visited in January 2014. There are 2

6k. While the others, not from an agency, charge from 2k to 3k.
I've tried a non agency girl. The service was
kind of disappointing as there was no body massage on a mat. After
taking a bath in the bathtub it is straight to the bed.

Now the red and blue badge cost the same at 1800

It was my first time in Pattaya and I went to the

days with her. No charge! so cant say that this is a bad place. Will
be going again in May!

girls are decent but the rooms are filthy and the waiters are downright
rude! I've never been back, missing this place is no great loss.

Super Model Spa
(Near new motorway junction)
Super Model Spa
Beach Road, corner Soi 4
On the Beach Road adjacent to the
Susie Massage parlor, there is a Karaoke bar called 'Susie Karaoke'.
This bar is for Japanese only. But the Susie Massage parlor right behind
the bar is for everyone.
I've been to the 'Susie Massage' parlour not so long ago. And I couldn't
stay away from it. I came back there again and again. One of the ladies
there had an awesome-looking body. Nice tits, big nipples, slim waist,
heart-shaped full cheeky ass, and sexy long legs. And she was very nice
to me too.
From a letter to Pattaya Mail newspaper:
Recently I tried to enter the Susie Karaoke. I was ushered out of the
establishment and was told that they catered to Japanese only, but I
could use the body massage on the second floor."
The fishbowl is in a corner so if you
sit at the back of the bar you cant see, and the front of the bar is
full of Japanese or Koreans. You need to do a bit of manouvering to get
a good view to make your selection.
The girls are certainly top notch and in my opinion the rooms are far
superior than either of the 3 Sabais. It is more a massage place with
full service rather than a soapy. Cant remember the prices, but no more
expensive than the Sabais. If you are in Walking Street it is a good
alternative to trekking uptown, give it a go its well worth it.
700 Baht for 1.5 hour massage and only covers the basic massage
At first glance many of the massage
parlours may seem less than ideal for wheelchair access with steps
outside and upstairs rooms etc. However this should not be
considered as a big problem as the parlours are in the business of
catering to peoples needs.

Definitely worth a look if you are passing through Chonburi.
Galaxy Entertainment Complex
Bang Saen (about 30km north of Pattaya)
I'm not a great fan of body massages but thought I'd check this place
out when I was in the area. I wish I hadn't.
It's more expensive than the big Pattaya soapies, with fewer and
lower quality ladies, worse rooms and bad service. This isn't a place
for rich Thais. Bang Saen is the Thai equivalent of Blackpool, full of
Thais who can't afford to get to a proper beach resort. I guess Galaxy
is a place for Thais who can't afford the Bangkok soapies.
There's no fishbowl, just a row of about 20 seats for the ladies.
There were between 3 and 10 girls sitting down at any one time. This
compares to up to 100 girls in the big Sabai places in Pattaya. There
must have been about 20 Thai guys inside and the good looking ladies
were gone as soon as they'd sat down.
I saw a girl I liked and the papasan assured me she had no babies and
no tattoos. I paid my 1900 baht but once we got into the room and she
undressed I saw a massive tattoo on her back, one on her shoulder and
one on her saggy breast. She had a flabby, stretch-marked belly and
udder-like breasts which were a total turn off. I was thinking of taking
her back and complaining to the papasan but we were already in the bath
and if he scammed me before I didn't fancy my chances of a refund.
So I went ahead with it but there was no soapie or jacuzzi, just a
bath, a totally lame massage on the bed then I got the rest over as
quickly as possible.
The room was freezing cold as they have industrial aircon in them
that can't be adjusted or even turned off. It was so cold both I and the
girl wanted to leave after 40 minutes were up (I'd paid for 90) so that
You can get a better short time in soi 6 for half the price. If you
want a decent soapie check out Sabai Dee for 1600 baht. Stay away from
I personally think that this is the best place to go, much better
than Sabailand and all the Pattaya places, the girls have no attitude
and are pretty good looking.
The place opens at about 12.30 pm every day, weekdays there's not
many girls until around 1.30-2.00 though.
The price is 1700 for the left side (these are the ones that may have
had kids or might not be that attractive), for the right hand side (the
counter) its 1900.
In general the 1900 girls are smart looking, a bit Thai style I.e. white
skin, slim and narak (cute)....but there are a few big titties if you
like that sort of thing.
A Cut Above
Galaxy Entertainment Complex in Bang Saen is a cut above
the Pattaya soapies and I've not heard a bad report from anyone who's
been there. The ideal time to hit it is after a game of golf at one of
the Bang Saen/Sri Racha courses around 4:00 p.m., Mon to Thu (it gets a
lot of Bangkok customers Thu-Sun).
As well as the fishbowl you have sideliners, "no-bra" girls,
nightclub, karaoke lounges, restaurant, lounge etc. Cost of a sideliner
last year was 1,700 Baht for 2 hours in a standard room .... add on an
extra 200 Baht if you are in a group and want to share a party room with
4 bedrooms leading off. The mamasan is a great lady, speaks excellent
English and has none of the pushy tactics sometimes found in the main
It is very much a Thai orientated place so it helps if you have
someone along with you who knows the score on how it all works. There
are many places out of Pattaya & Bangkok which are not known to tourist
farangs. These area are meant for Thai rich people. There you will get a
real good stuff. Galaxy Bang Sean is one of them.
Personally I wouldn't give happy world the time of day, have been
there a couple of times and to be honest it was Piss poor, all the best
ones get taken as soon as they walk through the door, or else they have
been booked by phone. The police raid the place on a regular basis.

The price is 550 Baht for a 1.5 hr relaxing oil massage, but for
everything beyond erotic, the lady will try to extract as much
money as she can.
Lowest prices I got were 300-600-1000. All in all anything else than
a cheap option, since for 1600 Baht one can also get a full soapie
experience and without the annoying bargaining.

Smile on My Face
Nice clean venue, friendly girls and really nice mama
san opted for 1.5 hour oil massage and was not disappointed think I paid
500 baht you have to try the balls massage out of this fricking world
thought I'd died and gone to heaven.
I got stung a little for extras but left with a smile on my face so who
cares (customer satisfaction not an issue).
The customer lounge has been enlarged and
completely re-decorated. We have also done up all our rooms which
now all feature designer wall-paper, some are fitted with wall
mirrors. The VIP room now looks like a real Oriental boudoir.
We currently have 16 girls working in our shop; some
young, some not so young; some small and some not so small.
We have lowered our prices for the low season and 1
hour of oil or lotion massage, including balls massage, is now available
at 400 baht.
Editorial: Not a Soapy
I have received and read many comments and offer the following
paragraph to summarise them.
The basic massage is pretty traditional.
It is not a soapy. At
Dream Teen you pay for and get an hour of non-sex but erotic oil-like
massage followed by a balls massage. Many people have commented
that they found this very enjoyable but several, expecting something
closer to a soapy have been disappointed.
Luna Massage seems to be pitching itself as a high quality
massage shop with a standard massage menu about 100 Baht higher than
typical Pattaya massage shops.
For the extra the rooms are very well appointed and very clean
and neat. There are private rooms as wells as the traditional
curtained off cubicles, and of course shared foot massage space.
The girls are also above average with reports of a couple of
cuties and also some good massage skills. The selection process is
via a book of available girls rather than in person.
Extras are available but it us very much up to the girl. This
includes both services and prices. The reviews so far suggest a
range from average to top end gogo girl prices. Also extras are
negotiated towards the end of the session, and with such a range of
availability/price then this is sure to wind up customers who prefer
fair play pricing.
It is probably set to get mixed reviews, along the lines of
Dream Teen, depending on how customers react to very variable
outcomes on offer. Some will enjoy and some won't.

I visited Phaingirn Massage in Soi 3 today, and had a very bad
The house have buidling workers doing some changes, they where running
in and out of the separate rooms, and very noisy, shouting and so on.
After ½ hour I put on my clothes and vent down to the reception and
wanted some money back, but no, only a fob off.
In soi 3 there's a massage that includes the hand job in the price.
They have a couple of really nice ladies, but most of them are at the
best average. Only paid 500 for 2 hours of oil massage and the extra
treatment. Was really shocked the first time I went there.
Always a happy ending and she will shower you after. 300
Baht is the going rate for a hand job
Looked clean and slightly unusual design on the window. I was staying
across the street at the LK Pavilion, so I looked at the place everyday
as I walked by. Seemed quite dead in the early afternoon but fairly busy
at night. After a week I found myself with nothing to do and went in.
The girls were busy upstairs but the cashier - Om - said she could give
me a foot massage. This girl looked very young and said she was 18. The
foot massage was surprisingly good but she was too strong on my neck.
Still better than I expected,
About halfway through a very attractive girl with an amaz9ing smile even
by Thai standards came down with her client and I watched as they sat
outside for a bit. Two more girls came down stairs before I was finished
with my massage. After paying, I was offered water, tea of coffee. I
took a coffee and sat down next to the girl outside - Ooy. I made a joke
that they should deliver to the hotel, and she said that it was no extra
cost for massage in your room in buildings on this block. I setup an
appoint for her for the next night at 10pm for two hour oil. As they
close at midnight, I was hoping I could turn this into a long time. We
sat and talked for a bit, she seemed to understand the US version of
English better than most.
As I left I notuiced the website address on the door: samaimassage.com -
I guess Serenity.com was taken - and checked it out back at the hotel.
The page only shows two massage girls, neither of which I saw while I
was there. Om was listed as cashier.
Ooy showed up exactly on time - a first in Thailand I think - and
proceeded to give me an excellent oil massage. I was unable to coax - or
buy - her into a long time as she explained her boyfriend was in town.
No happy ending seemed forthcoming either, but I am not skilled at
asking for this if it is not hinted at or expressly offered.
All in all though I was very happy with my treatment both within and
without the establishment. No happy ending, but plenty of places
everywhere else for that. I enjoyed my massage and joking with the
girls. I look forward to partonizing them again when I return in April.

room rather than the cheaper fan option. An absolute bargain.
