“my everyday spa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

I have lived 2 minutes away from Baan Dalah for the past few years and therefore, I find it so convenient to visit whenever I can. To begin, the place is famous for their foot massages. This combined with the running water in the background and dark atmosphere makes this an ideal place for a private and soothing escape from the busy Sukhumvit. The prices here are amazingly low and just adds to the draw of coming here. I've been coming here at least once a week for a few years now and it never gets old. I would not recommend a thai massage here; I am usually disappointed whenever I have one. It's the foot massage by far that's the draw with an occasional head/shoulder massage or ear cleaning.

“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

This place is a bit more expensive compared to other massage parlors. However, the ambiance more than makes up for it. We had a Thai leg and back massage and thoroughly enjoyed it.

“My Favourite Thai Spa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

I find myself in Bangkok at least twice a year either on business or holiday. A trip to Thailand always, always starts with a three hour visit to Baan Dalah - the best spa I have ever found.

Baan Dalah is just at the bottom of Nana BTS but when you go in the world dissapears into a tranquel setting. Once you make your request for treatment - mine is always a 2 hour Thai massage followed by an hour of reflexology you take off your shoes.

You feet are washed by attentive staff and then you are taken upstairs to their treatment rooms. Thai massage is done dressed so you are shown to your small dimly lit treatment room and you change into the loose fitting outfit waiting for you. Your massage is done to the level of firmness that you ask for. It really takes out all of the kinks that long haul flying give you.

The reflexology is done down stairs on comfortable loungers. I always find myself nodding off while my feet are being worked on, especially after two hours of Thai massage.

Clean and very reasonably priced I couldn't ask for more. I highly recommend it!!

“Frequent visitor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

Have been frequenting only this spa when I stay on soi 8. Located right at the start of soi 8 and just a stone throw from Nana BTS, this spa is the cleaner, better decorated and nicer ambience among the lot. Prices are somewhat similar to many of those street side spas.

This is a family spa and no dirty business is conducted. I find the overall service to be friendly unlike how some reviewers have indicated otherwise. Thais are generally friendly and soft spoken unless you irked them.

Its located beside the street so the occasional traffic noise can be heard. I think this adds to the authencity of a thai city massge. If you want a peaceful top notch massage, then please pay for one otherwise expect monkeys for peanuts. I'm not saying to avoid this spa as I have always enjoyed, but there are various masseurs with varying skills.... so its a game of luck at times.

“Expensive for Bangkok, but a clean and professional spa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We did a "walk-in" into this spa as the TripAdvisor sticker on the front door caught our eye! We looked at the prices and even though the prices were steep for massages in Bangkok, it looked decent enough for a try.

We opted for a full body massage, and were shown to our rooms. If you want to have a facial or a foot massage, you will be assigned to one of the chairs on the ground floor (next to the walk-in area), so there isn't much privacy.

The spa is well-designed and invoked a feeling of being in a Thai resort. The rooms are small and had soft lighting, and they felt cosy. I was led to a shower to rinse off (your choice), and then had the massage.

My therapist is very strong and despite asking her to go easy on my shoulders she did not relent. In fact she said, "Hurt now, but later ok!", which I wasn't too pleased with! I was hurting a lot as I just had a rock-climbing trip in Saraburi, so you can imagine my discomfort.

As I chose the Swedish massage option, I was very well-oiled, and I had a shower after a massage to get rid of the excess oil.

In summary, it is a nice spa but the therapists should listen to the customer and adjust her strength according to the comfort of the customer! Other than this negative aspect, it is a family-friendly spa where no sexual business of any kind will be tolerated.
