The massage is good. It's hard and deep. But the interior not so clean. Also not sure about cleanness of sheets which they give

I have done 100s of massages and this, a bit surprising to find on koh phangan, is in the top 5 of all time for me. Rare: before starting lady (jaan) asked me where i hurt. And then she went to work! After 6 days of intensive yoga, the massage was great!

Had some epic session with Papaya herself. Its was a different level to the massages on the beach and although sometimes painful I felt amazing afterwards. i did try the other ladies but I preferred Papaya.

These ladies know what they are doing; have never had such good advice and treatment on some body parts, where in Europe the only advice has been to get surgery. You are literally in good hands here.

We are staying on the island for a month yoga retreat and using this place as our massage parlour. They are very good, thai massage is very accurate and really open up your muscles. Place has a lot of cats as well, if you enjoy petting one during your foot massage. Small minuses comes from lack of privacy and sometimes... More

If you enjoy a stronger massage and dont mind paying 100 baht (apprx $3) more, I'd recommend papaya. Although I didnt have exceptional experiences here the quality of massage in papaya is better than most places by the beach and the ladies seem somewhat trained. If you are after really good cheap massages, I would recommend going to the North... More

Not just traditional Thai massage here. This is the best massage I have found. The owner has many certifications. You should ask for her and specifiy what you want. Ask for the 4 hand massage which is the same price as a regular thai massage! Be sure to tell them how hard you like it. I like it hard. If... More
