Well, we went to Magnolia Men Spa in Soi LK Grand Living, Pattaya. It’s not hard to find. Go up Pattaya Tai, towards the Sukhumvit Road. Before Big C you will pass Soi 1 on the right (Soi Ko Phai). Immediately after this on the left is Soi LK Grand Living Place. I guess the Magnolia is 100m up this road on the right – well signed.
As we entered we were immediately impressed. The entrance hall is clean, well decorated and has that “new” feeling. We were offered a drink and chatted while our rooms were got ready (I think this involved merely turning on the air conditioning). Shortly we chose our masseurs and went upstairs. Again we were impressed. It was spotlessly clean and nicely appointed. There was a very nice shower in the corner (we both opted for standard rooms rather than V.I.P which has a full bathroom). It was private and spacious. No squeezing between grimy curtains and going out into the corridor for a shower. This is deluxe with a capital D. The masseur arrived and set about his work. Speaking for myself, I know choice of masseur is everything, but the lad I had was very skilled. We were told the lads are trained in house, and who ever does the training knows their business.
The massage was perfect. Just the right pressure, the right amount of time spent on each part, a good variety of strokes, just the right amount of chat (very little – I like to relax). And I came out happy at the end. My partner had a similar experience.
We can’t say a lot more. Was there a downside? At the rack rate of 500B this would have been a great experience. At 199B special offer for June it was fantastic. No there were no downsides. We usually like a tiny negative comment to give balance and make people think we’re being fair. In this case we both said not a single bad word. It was perfect. If you don’t go in June and take their special offer, go in July and get the great experience at the regular rate. There’s a special offer (permanently) for 4 people going together (this needs booking, but one goes free) and they are offering a loyalty card – 5 massages and the 6th is free.
If you do go, tell them you saw it on Nicky’s – the owner will smile!
