A quick thumbs up review of a new massage shop in Bangkok called "Ganymede Spa."

 

Map   Line ID:  Rubyricher

 

Ganymede Spa opened two weeks ago near the Phayathai BTS station. It's easy to get to.  It's towards the end - on the left - of a private road that leads to the Pathumwan Resort Condominiums.  A short walk from Phayathai BTS Exit 2.  

 

Reception is upstairs, and the massage rooms are up another flight of stairs.  Everything is very nice and new and tastefully done.  Photos of the guys are on Line.  It's a small shop, and new, so hard to predict how many guys will be available.  On a Sunday at 5:00 one guy was available and the others (1 or 2?) were with customers.  The nice young manager said that more guys would be available starting March 12.  I was able to select my masseur from a live line-up (albeit a lineup of 1).  But I expect booking ahead based on the photos shared on Line will be the preferred way of booking for those of us who are comfortable doing so.  Despite the "Ganymede" name the guys working there so far are in that Bangkok sweet spot of athletic fit good looking guys in their mid-to-late 20s.

 

Prices are a bit less than the more established top-of-the-line shops:  90 minute was 700 Baht with minimum tip of 1,200.  60 minutes would be 500/1000

 

The rooms are not large but nice and clean with massage tables w/face cut outs.  Tall people might not be able to use the face cut out because the tables are not long.  Shower and bathroom are shared at the end of the hall.  Shower is in a bathtub, so beware getting in/out.

 

My masseur was an older muscled type.  The massage was outstanding/excellent.  Very Strong,, started on the back and shoulders, which is minority practice over here, and just the right amount of oil used (i.e., not to much oil).  And the oil seemed to be of good quality.  Special services were very good.  Perhaps it was just my masseur, or with luck it will be the shop's attitude for a while, but there was definitely a real trying-hard-to-please attitude.  Masseur was in his briefs to start, but those came off at the right time.  Shower alone before or after

 

A nice shop in an area without a lot of other M4M shops.  Perfect after a tough day at Chatuchak or MBK.  I hope everyone gives it a chance.

Found the place OK today a little after 3p.m. but was not open. Will be on top of list for next trip. With a new start up, better to heed DM's advice and call ahead.

Good landmark to identify private road: look for small blue "taxi" sign and turn left. As DM says, nearly at very end.

Time used in pursuit of massage never wasted, just invested.

Patience rewards the virtuous........and all other intentions.

Went to Ganymede. Unfortunately went too early (2pm) so only one masseur available. I should have sent Line message in advance. But in any case, the masseur who serviced me (calls himself X) doesn't have his photo on the shop's Line account.

X is muscular with huge tattoo on his chest. He looks like George Michael with goatee. Decent massage skills. Strong strokes. I took 90-minutes scrub and oil massage at 800 baht. Started with scrub. After scrub, X led me to shower to wash away the scrub before proceeding to oil massage and sex. Toilet down the halfway has a bathtub so must be careful going in and out.

After i was done, went down to pay. Saw the other masseurs slowly reporting for work. About 3 others, with one really handsome.

Ganymede is arguably the easiest to find massage place in Bangkok. So so near to BTS. Clean facilities. Worth going.

I would call it a small web presence rather than a full website

Definition from Wikipedia -- A website is a collection of related web pages, including multimedia content, typically identified with a common domain name, and published on at least one web server.

 

Ganymede site contains menu of services, photos, map and hyperlinks to additional pages. Content is similar to many other massage shop websites. Don't know how much more is required to pass muster.

If you speak Thai, which I don't, you indeed have a website. In English, it is just a cover page.

The menu and prices are in English; the map is in English.

 

Do you really need an English (or Thai for that matter) description to understand this page?

of course it's a website and it's ridiculous to suggest that a site in Thailand can't qualify as a "website" unless it's robustly in English.  Let's not quibble -- entirely unnecessarily -- with a productive member's post, which can only add a dose of discouragement.  

 

if you use google chrome browser it's also quite easy just to say "yes" when the good folks at google offer to translate the page for you.  that's not so hard.

I agree with your your comments except for using Google Translate which usually gives me translations which make no sense.

i agree.  on a separate note, i think whatever facebook uses for translate has been hacked, because I frequently get downright bizarre translations entirely unrelated to the Thai text, such as "I don't know what to do" or "I'm very tired."  Perhaps it's just a sign that the translator-AI has become sentient.

Massage report for July 6, about 3:45 p.m.

Can confirm all of what DivineMadman reported in OP regarding facilities and type of guys to expect. If you're like me, and can't get on the Skytrain without locating a handful of guys you'd like to put on your short list for the day, you'll likely find someone to your liking here. The briefest description that comes to mind: guy-next-door Thai guys in mid-20's.

When I arrived there were three available and one greeted me with good English and a glass of water. He explained the rate card (1 hour oil now 600 and cream 700, the latter of which he recommended and I agreed to).

As I judged all three to be about equal in attractiveness. I went with the greeter.

Taken to a room on third floor. Boy pointed out that shower was at other end of hall and he left to shower elsewhere as it turned out. The shower is in a bathtub (jacuzzi actually). When he returned to room he had only a towel wrapped around him and that was allowed to drop to floor five minutes later. His massage skills were certainly adequate and he was eager to please. Not a lot more you can ask for.

As proceedings came to a close, he asked me what "I thought." It dawned on me after a few moments that he was soliciting feedback on his performance. Don't think I had ever been asked that question outright before. "You can tell me anything," he added. Since he seemed genuinely sincere, I offered two points: spend less time on the legs and encourage customer feedback early on.

He thanked me with a hug and left me to shower alone. Since there's only one shower, and it was being used by another customer (a rather hunky farang I noticed as he emerged) there was a brief delay. During prime hours, this could result in a queue.

As noted above, Ganymede is easy to find and get to (20 minutes from Silom including walk from station).

I messaged the shop on Line before departing and got a quick confirmation that they were indeed open. As I was leaving, a good-looking young man was just reporting for duty. Think it would be better to visit after 6p.m. for wider selection.

How do you know the translations are unrelated to the Thai text?

Your examples are typical of what many of my Thai friends post on facebook in Thai.

I have some limited facility with reading thai.
