I would not recommend this place. I went there thinking traditional Thai massage school. My masseuse was distracted. The beds are next to one another and so space can be a constraint. The masseuse kept talking to each other. It might depend on who you get as a masseuse but the service is superficial "let me pretend I am giving you a traditional Thai massage" kind. It is clean. though. They change sheets after each massage and offer fresh clothes to change into for massage. The lady massaging my friend offered her slippers to my friend whose shoes was broken which was a kind gesture but for massage it is a big NO! Not worth the money. I tried Bua Sabai and that is how I realized this was a scam. But again I think it depends on the masseuse too. Mine was lousy.

Very bad place and expensive; inexperienced and not professional people doing massage. You can have much better massage in other cheaper places; I was so disappointed with the service. The young girl who was giving me foot massage was just there trying to finish time and didn’t really care about giving good service. Do not go there!

I took my grandson because it is famous. The massage was slightly better than other massages I had. My grandson will forever tell the story of his massage at the famous temple but not for the quality of the massage once in a lifetime visit

While Wat Pho school trains most hotel spa staff, the massage on the Wat Pho temple complex is very touristic. The prices itself are still ok, but the service is flat conveyor style. If you want good medical massage with the necessary calm environment, this is not the right place.

Loved this massage and took it twice hour long!! It's a great way to relieve those stiff muscles when you don't exercise on travel! The masseurs are quite expert at what they do but be sure to mention and ensure they understand pre existing conditions! Avoid if unsure about this part!
It's more of a workout at stretching than a massage lol

Not serious.
I’ve spent 2 months asking via email and WhatsApp for a course on the last Monday of November 2022. Booked my very expensive return flights only for that and they didn’t book me in.
Very disappointed! Their website is only working half and Mr Sarat doesn’t do what he said he would. Communicating with them is incredibly difficult, I only got the chance to get my calls answered once, and WhatsApp/email are barely answered too.

Stopped by when visiting Wat Pho temple. Got a 30 minute foot massage and a 30 minute Thai massage. I had never gotten a massage in Thailand previous to this. It is a good way to introduce yourself to how Thais do massage. I enjoyed the massage, and the masseuse was friendly and attentive. She would focus on areas that needed extra attention. It was not the best massage I received in Thailand (Asia Herb Association is very good. I also recommend Mon or Lei Nu at Full Moon Thai massage). But it was good. In retrospect, one hour for foot and Thai is probably better.

My worst experience in Thailand!
Called their number and took 20 min just to make them understand if it was ok to come at 5.00 pm for a massage even though closing hour was 6.30 pm. When we got there they told us that it was closed, and that if i wanted a massage i had to go outside to another school of massage that held almost the same name. At first i thought it was the same school just a different building with a different entrance but when i got there it was a completely different school in a crumsy street.
So we went back to them (all this happened in the pouring rain) telling them this is not the place i called to book a massage and that the actual place was here not outside. Then they kept telling me that if i wanted to go in i had to pay 200 bahts per person.
They i asked if i pay the 200 will i be able to get to the massage school and they said no, it's just to visit the perimisses.
I really got pissed off and decided to turn around and go back to my hotel.
They are super unprofessional and they take clients as sheepeople.
Also why in the hell should i pay someone who's still learning to massage????
Go to hell school of bullsh...t!!
I will never recommend your place and i hope someone will get fired for his/her unprofessional management.

I visited here for a foot massage whilst visiting the temple based on other reviews and was not disappointed. For me this was the best massage that I’ve had in Bangkok and was well worth the price at about £12 for an hour.

Would definitely recommend and visit again allowing time for some relaxing whilst visiting this amazing temple.
