I had heard a lot about Thai massage and on a recent business trip to Munich I tried Bua Siam. I was really pleased.
They greet your warmly, have you take your shoes off and then wash your feet in a brass bowl. You are then escorted to an area where curtains divide off small rooms
and find your mat on the floor. Because there are only curtains as a divider, you can hear every word in the place. Sometimes the massage ladies will talk to each other through the curtain, which was a bit annoying but did not last long
This is not for massage newbies. These ladies are very aggressive, using their hands, knees, and elbows. She even walked on me from just above the knee all the way to the mid back. They will push you to your discomfort limits, but the result is worth it!
I called Saturday morning and was able to get an appt. by 3PM the same day. They speak English well enough that the booking process was easy. They take cash, of course, but only German credit cards.
We would not return to this spa.
While we did not expect a lot it is a suburban spa and the price was reasonable the massage my husband received was weak and ineffectual as the therapist seemed to be going through the motions.
My massage was quite good but as the two therapists chatted to each other throughout the massages as only a curtain divided the cubicles, this did not create a relaxing environment.
To add insult to injury, we were taken into the cubicles to commence our therapy 15 mins late after the booked time and then our services were cut short to make up time and we were still expected to pay for the full hour!!
After expressing our dissatisfaction with the services we were given a 10% discount.
Great massage great price. Seriously, EUR39 for an hour of traditional Thai massage? You'll be begging for the hour to go quickly; these ladies are serious. Digging into the knots, prying out the months of tension. But such a good pain Get a pain-free oil massage to relax if you like. Make an appointment days in advance if possible they fill up. So worth it.
