Update 2014: When I wrote the review, Sense was called Sands. I didn't visit it again since. You may check their new website here: http://www.sensejakarta.com/. For the old review, please find below:

Big dark, loud disco. On its website (Sands Clubs Jakarta), it pretends it is the biggest one-stop entertainment in Asia. But I don't even think it's the biggest in Jakarta!

The club is oriented towards chinese clients mostly, with regular mandarin singers invited to perform, chinese food at the restaurant, chinese songs in the karaoke, chinese girl companion, etc..

It's so close from Novotel Hotel, which belongs to French group Accor, I thought it was part of it, but apparently it's not the case... It would have been weird for the brand to own a massage parlour in Jakarta! The Sands Club plays Techno Kota or live music and has special "Funky House" parties on Sunday afternoon. These parties are always quite lively because you have a mix of drug-addicts who haven't slept since friday night, plus normal guys/gals who escape from the mall to go clubbing.

Sexy dancers, apparently from China, are dancing on the podium every hour or so. It also has a spa and karaoke, opened until 2am. Quite crowded when I was there, it's one of Mangga Dua's most happening places regarding nightlife and entertainment.

They have some very luxurious KTV rooms as you can see on the pictures:

  1. I visited Sands Spa twice (2009 and 2010) when I was in Jakarta and stayed in the Accor-Novotel just nearby. Spa is clean and nice, full facilities (TV, Sauna, Jacuzzi), and - of course - the massage. You can choose between Chinese (expensive) or local (cheaper) girls, and between different sessions and rooms. Tips for HJ and ++/+++ are not included. Room and "normal" massage start somewhere at 200k (normal room, local girl), tips for the extras start also around 200k - should be negotiated directly with the girl BEFORE the massage.

  2. Forget to describe my experiences ... First time I had a nice Chinese girl, room and massage around 300k. Massage was spectacular (a real good massage), some of the best I ever had. HJ was also very good, she asked for a 300k tip. Second time I booked the same service, but massage was quite poor: the girl was obviously only interested in the tip for the "extra" service. HJ also 300k, not negotiable. I think the prices were: 300k HJ, 500k BJ, 700k full nude sex.

  5. chinese girl was old and asked for 1juta... when no additional service was asked (given she was so old and scary looking) she added 80,000 to the total bill without any consent. stay away from this place.

  6. Visited this place last night. I got a local girl, 200k for the massage which was fantastic. Partial Shiatsu whilst walking on my back with bars and the rest oil. The price included a small buffet, sauna, steam room, gym, jacuzzi. Also there were lounges available to use and watch tv etc The place was quite smoky. I was expected to get ripped off, but when was presented with the bill was pleasantly surprised. I tipped the girl extra of course for the massage but as I did not want any extras my tip was not the figures quoted. HJ was offered, no price quoted. After you finish with the massage, you are escorted to your locker whereby you pay the girl her tip so have lots of spare cash depending on what service you want. The place accepts credit cards. Chinese massage was around 350k.
    The girl worked hard and not like a lot of the lazy Thai girls in BKK that go straight
    for the jugular hoping u cum quick for a fast tip. Overall, I was pretty happy.

  16. The massage rates are standard and massage is good as well. But the girls ask for exhorbitant tips, even if do only massage. In case if you ask for extra, you are finished

  18. 17 May 2016 - attempted to explore this Sense Spa/Karaoke as I stayed in the Novotel Mangga Dua, which is essentially in the same building as Sense.
    Note that not all the lifts go up to Floor 5-7, e.g. Lift 11 and 12 only go up to L3.
    I took Lift 13 at one far end of the Mangga Dua Square up to Floor 7.
    Their spa/massage no longer exists, it closed a year ago.
    Their Karaoke rooms start from 1.5m rupiah, food & beverage included. Hostess provided but I'm not sure what services they will provide inside the karaoke room. Plus you can't see or pick your girl till you committ and get a room, so I gave it a pass.
