Finding Your Best Spa & Massage in Jakarta

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
Half of the people emailing me are usually just dropping the same sentence: "Hey, love your blog, where can I find the best spa/best massage parlour near my hotel?"

As I'm getting tired of replying to the same question almost every day, I'm writing this blog post hoping that it will answer it once and for all. I'll update the list regularly, in particular with the comments you will be kind enough to leave. You can click on each venue, it will redirect you on this blog if there is already a review, or on an external website with more detailed information.

Before starting, if you are looking for a hotel with a massage parlour plus plus located inside, you can check the following: Ochardz IndustriOrchardz JayakartaOrchardz Bandara (near the airport) or B'Fashion. You can read more information about girl-friendly hotels in my Jakarta Hotel Guide.

Note: Next to each venue, I put a sign: $ (cheap), $$ (moderate), $$$ (expensive).

Massage Parlours with Extra Services

If you are looking for a massage parlour for men only, I advise you to go to Delta Spa ($$) first. As with Bersih Sehat, they can be found a bit everywhere (Harmoni, Gatot Subroto, Wijaya, Kelapa Gading, Kebon Jeruk, etc... check my review for all the locations and phone numbers).

My Place ($$) is also a popular chain, with branches all over Jakarta (Kelapa Gading, Senayan, Kebayoran Baru, Gunung Sahari/Pasar Baru, Bekasi, Tangerang/Serpong, Kebon Jeruk).

There are tons of other independent venues. Some are mild (plus plus massage), some are much hotter (Thai massage, Body Massage, Nuru Massage, Soapy massage, etc...). Click on the review first to learn more about each one:

As you can see, most of these men massage parlours are in North or West Jakarta, plus a few near Dharmawangsa square. If you live in the South or Central Jakarta, your options will be limited: You should go to the places near Jalan Melawai/Dharmawangsa OR Fortune OR Delta. If you decide to go North, the closest ones from Jalan Sudirman are V2, Malioboro, Emporium and Classic.

Normal Massage Parlours and Family Spas:

If you are looking for a clean, family massage, I advise you to go to Bersih Sehat ($) first. They are the best value-for-money massage parlours in Jakarta: Clean and basic but very affordable. You will find them in the following locations:
- Near Sarinah or Jalan Jaksa: On Jalan Wahid Hasyim, in front of Ibis Hotel
- Near Menteng, Cikini or Jalan Rasuna Said: On Jalan Diponegoro
- Near Sudirman, Plaza Indonesia, Grand Indonesia, Midplaza: In Sahid Jaya Hotel
- Near Mall of Indonesia, Sunter, Kelapa Gading: On Jalan Bukit Gading Raya
- Near Pondok Indah: In Pondok Indah Plaza 2
- Near the Airport (20 minutes) or near Taman Anggrek: On Jalan Puri Kencana

If you are looking for a more upmarket venue, the best thing to do is to go to the nearest 4 or 5-star hotel. From what I heard, the best ones are in Four Seasons Hotel ($$$), in Ritz-Carlton ($$$), in Dharmawangsa Hotel ($$$), in Nikko Hotel ($$$), in Hyatt ($$$), in Shangri-La ($$$) and in Marriott ($$$).

There are also a plenty of other independent salons, day spas and massage parlours, but many are only for women:

Near Sudirman/Setiabudi/Rasuna Said: Lumiere spa ($$), Samsara Spa ($$), Sanctum Spa ($$), Gaya Spa ($$$), Harnn and Thann ($$$), Zen Living Boutique Spa ($$)
Near Sarinah: Taman Sari Royal Heritage ($$$), Az-Zuhra ($$, women only)
Near Senayan: Yasuragi ($, call +62-21 5794 0884), Harnn and Thann Sanctuary ($$$)
Near Tebet: La Baiza Beauty Centre ($, +62-21 829 0294), Lavender Spa ($)
Near Kemang: Thann Sanctuary ($$$), Kupu Kupu Spa ($$$), Javana spa ($$), Nujaniv ($$), Lellidewi ($$, women only)
Near Mega Kuningan: JaSpa ($, in Ambassador Mall: +62-21 576 0480)
Near Cipete: Puri Santi ($$$), Hareem Spa ($$), Jamu Traditional Spa ($$$), Bale Bale ($$, women only), Itje Her ($, women only)
In Pondok Indah: Mitra Sehat ($), Puri Santi ($$$)
Near Dharmawangsa: Zaiken ($), Life Tree Spa ($$), Sari Mustika ($$)
Near Gandaria: Cozy Spa ($$), Bale Bale ($$, women only)
Near Kebaryoran Baru: Mitra Sehat ($), Reggia Spa ($$), House of Relax"Hore" ($$), Q Day spa ($$), Gaya Spa ($$$), Elements ($$, women only), Zen Family Reflexology ($$), Svana ($$)
Near Pluit: Roseberry Spa ($), Yu Yuan Tang ($)
Near Permata Hijau: Laxo ($$)
Near Kelapa Gading: Clique Spa ($$, +62-21 458 55327), Yu Yuan Tang ($)
Near Harmoni/Hayam Wuruk: Sien Cuk Thang ($)
Near Mangga Dua: Lotus ($)

At last, if you are a girl, check the spas of the Martha Tilaar group, among which Dewi Sri Spa ($$). Usually located in Central and South Jakarta, they provide excellent service but most of them do not accept men.

Check also the newly opened Relax Living Spas.


To finish, there might be some of you interested in gay massages, with a male therapist. I don't know many venues, but there are already two mentioned on this blog: 9M (near Plaza Indonesia/Tanah Abang) and Turkish Bath (Kemang).

Feel free to comment if you find some mistakes in this review. Thanks!

  7. Thx for the response.. this Web is great, I enjoy reading it so much. Garth

  8. Wow, that's a huge list !

    Maybe the second part can be split in:
    - Massage ++ (mild as you say) such as Delta, My Place, Fortune
    - Massage ++ and if requested +++ such as Sun City and Crown
    - Pure brothels only such as Alexis and Malioboro (although there is a real massage part in Malio)

    Outside of it, I highly recommend Sun City which is by far to me the best quality price ratio in town:
    - Cheaper than Delta (20$ for 1.5hr)
    - Much better rooms and facilities
    - Free food
    - Helpful staff
    - Nice girls (the PR ask for your preferences)
    It might be a bit crowded on Sat afternoon tho

  14. you may get lucky at mitra sehat wijaya. been there a couple times with no funny stuff. went in last time expecting a standard massage, but ended nicely. I didn't even ask for it.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Does anyone know about the Medika Bar & Massage in Jalembar, near Grogol!? It's behind the Ciputra Hotel & Mall. I live near there & every time I drive pass it looks dead from the front, but I know there is a side carpark & maybe a side entrance. There's also neon lights on the building once it gets dark like a fancy bar/pub. I might check it out one day but was just hoping if anyone has even heard of this place, & if so, please comment.
    If you're coming down from Grogol, it's the first street left after you've passed the hospital, & you'll see it as soon as you turn into the street, it's a 3-4 storey building on the left of the street.

  17. "Any info bout copacabana spa ,ancol, jakarta? Thanks"

    Copacobana spa located in taman impian jaya ancol, Ancol - North Jakarta, it is very easy to access there, because its located near the exit of toll way. good quality facilities and also usually not to crowded, excellent service by the therapist, total cost Rp835,000:
    Ancol entrance (1 car, 1 men) Rp30,000
    Facilities cost Rp280,000
    FJ Rp500,000
    Condom Rp25,000
    after that i saw the sunset at ancol beach.

    I agree with previously comment that, yuyuantang is good in foot and back massage

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anonymous.. can you explain more about "ended nicely" in mitra sehat wijaya. I've been there once only for 1 hour, naked only covered with towel. But when i ask to extend to 2 hour, the massager refused so i wasn't dare ask for ++.

    Is it better to massage with young or senior massager (if i want ++)?
    And how much the appropriate tips for standard and ++ massage (if i get ++ in mitra sehat).

    Thanks before

    ReplyDelete

  22. I've been to mitra sehat several times.. no ++ :), if ure looking for ++ service in south jakarta other than myplace, delta, or fortune try Mars (located at simprug gallery, jalan arteri). Its new! Ask the receptionist VIP room. Happy hour about IDR 230.000,- , tips for the massaseuse IDR 50.000-100.000 . Ps: HJ ONLY!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've try Timung 2 at Fatmawati Mas store area at fatmawati street. Its ok. Rp 130.000 for 1 hour massage+HJ. Add Rp 300.000 for the girl for take off clothes only. I can touch and su*k her breast and touch her underpants (she refused to take off her underpants). The girl is nice, young and easy to talk

    ReplyDelete
  24. Does anyone has experience with MARS at Simprug Gallery? Appreciate your feedback. Cheers.

  25. I'm heading 2 Jakarta this thursday.

    Please provide me info, which on is better.

    Thanks in advance, and Have a Nice Day 2 All

    ReplyDelete
  26. MARS, Simprug Gallery:
    I checked out the place a couple of weeks ago. The massage was average, not the best I've received. Masseuse was young and kind. She said she worked in jaspa Gading before. Price for room and massage almost 300k. HJ included. Tip 50k.

    LALUNA, off Hayam Wuruk.
    Went there on Friday. The place was deserted, no other customers in sight and the spa looked very old. Took the VIP room for 220k. Massage was average. Girl average too. She said she worked there during the day and in Classic at night. I tipped her 100k for HJ (maybe too much)

    ReplyDelete
  27. How come Magnolia not included? Coz the price is incld with HJ. Period!
    Me.

  43. I would recommend Samaya spa in Melawai, place a bit old but some nice girl. Maybe a bit pricy for extra. Does anyone know about place with ladyboy massues? Someone might be interested here

  46. Any good recommended family spa and spa plus (need both) near Ibis Arcadia?

  55. Hi, thanks for a great webpage. If you still have allot of people asking where these massages places are located, then I can recommend you to put them on Google map and share the file and map. I did that for bars and mongering places in Dubai ones :-)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hey, I checked Mitra Sehat in Kota Kasablanka, and the therapist offered me HJ for IDR 300k. I was not expecting that because I came there with my parents and brothers.. And the HJ was very good. When they ask you "have you been here before?" Just say "yes! 3-5 times.." Usually then they offer happy ending in the end...

  61. 'As I'm getting tired of replying to the same question almost every day, I'm writing this blog post hoping that it will answer it once and for all.'.... Kinda rude, if you are getting tired then maybe you should shut this blog down. Clearly people rely on your so called expertise for help. You may not have meant to sound rude but your delivery makes you seem a little stuck up and unapprochable

    ReplyDelete

    1. The reason people asked me the same question everyday was because there was no reviews available on the subject.

      So I wrote this review and now people can get the answer directly.

      It's easier for them, they don't need to contact me. It's easier for me, I can just send the link to the review.

      I'm always happy when people contact me for advice. You can try also, my email is thibaud@jakarta100bars.com.
