Actually by now, we had tried 4 famous massage in chiang mei. This one is the cheapest and the best one (compare to what we paid and enjoy). The room environment is very basic but still have bathroom. The massage is very professional (many poses) and the manager is very nice and helpful!

good massage but not the best of thailand. we had a reservation but we needed to wait, because the therapist wasn't there yes, no problem. my husband had a male and I had a woman therapist that sometimes went very hard but always asked me it was okay. husband was very happy with the massage. price quality good, maybe we go again next year

A friend and I went for a 120min Aroma massage. We were assigned 2 male therapists in separate rooms.
You fill in a form saying where you want them to concentrate on and areas not to work on if they are tender. We had been riding elephants a couple of days ago and my legs and thighs were stiff.
Sadly my therapist ignored pretty much everything I had detailed on my form. He only spoke to me twice during the 2 hour massage, "turn over please" and "thank you" when it was done. Nothing about if the pressure was ok (it was at times, sometimes it was too soft, and sometimes too hard around the back of my neck). This was a complete contrast to my friend's therapist who asked him how it was, asked him if he wanted water, if he wanted him to concentrate on areas etc.
When mine left for me to get dressed, I never saw him again. He literally disappeared without saying anything. Maybe he was having a bad day???

At Thb 850 for a 2 hour massage, you really cannot complain. But just so people know that the therapists are hit and miss.

I stayed an extra couple of days and was hoping to return if it was good, but it sounds too inconsistent so I gave it a miss.

Both me and my wife are big fan of thai massage so we have tried 4 times massages over our week long stay in Chiang Mai. The massages we tried include the expensive Oasis but I found Zabai have better value in comparison. One of the young owner pick us up and drop us back to the hotel and always insist to open the car door for us, making us feel welcomed. Check list is handed out to ask for area of body we need more attention, and the massager take it seriously. I find not even other more expensive massage did that. The quality of massage and overall experience is the best out of the 4 massages I tried.

One thing I think this place can be improved is that the lighting at the shop front can be made brighter rather than using the dimmed red color. People walking past Zabai might think this is a red light hanky panky shop.
