Cherry is a spa, bar and karaoke located in the Grand Wijaya complex, an area with several other naughty massage parlours and karaokes such as Fortune, D'Heaven and Delta. It is popular with Japanese/Korean expats and it is walking distance from the budget hotel Amaris Panglima Polim 2 and the 4-star property The 101 Sedayu.
There is another Cherry Spa in North Jakarta, in Lokasari to be precise, that I once reviewed here: Cherry Lokasari.
The concept is similar to the Lokasari branch: It is a naughty, girlie club with about 20 masseuses and 10 lady companions. Most of them are hanging out in a lounge where a DJ/live band is playing. As you enter the place, they will offer (through a mamasan) to join your table and they'll get a cut on the drinks you buy. What they really want though is to be taken either to the room for a massage/sex or to the karaoke.
You may also refuse to be accompanied and enjoy just watching the girls. The alcohol is rather cheap (large bintang for Rp50,000) and on weekends you have sexy dancers/costume nights.
You can pass on the lounge and visit the spa directly. It has a small sauna, a cold & hot pool and a jacuzzi. One of their specialty is the bikini massage that costs Rp450,000 net (all-in) for 90 minutes. You can get a cheaper massage (Thai style, shiatsu, traditional) at Rp250,000 (without sex).
The karaoke has 3 kinds of rooms (Standard, VIP, Suite with bed). To use them for 5 hours, you need to spend at least Rp750,000 for the Standard room and at least Rp2,000,000 for the Suite. If you want girls to accompany you, you'll need to pay between Rp500,000 and Rp600,000 for each.
