To start with, the building is great; clean, beautiful decor, and nicely furnished. The receptionist was friendly, and the prices seemed reasonable for what was appearing to be a very exceptional spa. Me and my girlfriend booked two 2-hour special packages. We showered before hand in their nice shower, and after this great start, the experience was completely awful. The masseuses were extremely poor; it seems unlikely they were trained at all. They were very lazy about the massage, the pressure to start was so soft I could not feel it, and after asking for a stronger massage it was about as strong as someone rubbing suntan lotion on the skin. The package we booked involved 40 minutes foot massage, 40 minutes head back shoulder, and 40 minutes oil. We got 1 hour of the worst foot massage I have ever had, 30 minutes of a bad oil massage, and 5 minutes of the standard head massage. They never touched the shoulders, and there was no effort in their practice. They were massaging on the wrong lines, and clearly just going through the motion because they have to.
Along with the untrained, lazy masseuses, they were sick. Coughing on me the entire time. They left for about 10 minutes when they went to get the oil, giving us a welcome break from the 'experience'. They had to stop a few times to answer their phones. My girlfriend is a trained masseuse, and she had worse things to say than I do about the quality of the massage. Avoid this place, go across the street to a very similar, but much superior, spa.

The spa was recommended by a guidebook which mentioned its practical and not fancy. We believe that. The foot massage was suck. The guy answerd at least 3 phone calls as well kept talking to another woman during the treatment. I wouldn't recommend any one come here. I'm sorry!

I went with a friend visiting me in Chiang Mai. We really wanted to like this spa, since it is so conveniently located and the spa itself is nicely appointed. However, we won't go back. One of our masseuses was quite good while the other was clearly untrained (she kept asking the other masseuse questions during the massage). However, what was really inexcusable was her taking 3 telephone calls while we were in the middle of our treatments. The regular interruptions spoiled the atmosphere. There are too many great spas in CM to have to put up with these problems.

Went to have my upper body waxed. Then had a 2 hour oil massage. I was pleasantly surprised at what great service I received. I am a repeat customer.
