Famous massage parlour in Hotel Melawai I, popular with expats (I swear I never went to this place!!). It is located on its 6th floor and called Maribaya bar. I'm not sure it’s even a bar, more likely a pure bordello. Some reports that a guy spent a whole week in it, without seeing daylight.

ADD COMMENT
  1. The bar is called Maribaya. It is indeed located at the 6th floor (or 5+1 as it is often called by married expats) of the hotel Melawai. I have been there several times, usually in the afternoon, and there were never less than 20 girls available. Whether you like a particular girl is up to your personal taste. I have always found a girl (or two) to suit my taste and on a number of occasions I have invited the girl(s) to come to my hotelroom later.
    I recommend Maribaya.

  2. turned up about 10pm on a weds. 15 girls there. used short time room Rp400,000 for everything i/c massage as well. tipped inside room paid at counter outside afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  3. What is "everything i/c massage" in combination with "tipped inside room" supposed to mean? I.e. how far from "everything" was the 400K?

    In Bangkok at an oil massage place it's say 600 for the room, and 1500 "tip" for the rest. At a soap massage place it's say 2500 for "everything" and a tip of 100 or so if you want to tip. What is it here?

  4. Forgot how to post under my previous name (Herman) so now als anonymous.
    To anonymous2:
    What part of the post is difficult to understand?
    "Everything" is whatever you want; you pay for one hour and if you only want a massage that is up to you. If you want to have sex 6 times in the hour that is also up to you.
    You pay at the counter and the girl gets half of that. Whatever you tip in the room is for the girl. Good service deserves (in my opinion) a decent tip.

    ReplyDelete
  5. about how much is a decent tip for good service?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I usually tip Rp. 50,000, sometimes a bit more depending on the cash I have in my wallet..

    Melawai is so so for me, girls know what they are doing but they are much older than the ones that can be found in Kota's massage parlours. More expensive too (rp450,000)

  8. I went tonight (Sunday at 9pm) and it was really empty and dreadful. Just half a dozen girls all shouting "massage massage".... really empty.. Had one drink and left. Probably bad timing.

  9. I can’t believe I have been here for 10 days and I have just discovered the Maribaya massage at Hotel Melawai! Went along today & took a while to find the place as the front is being spruced up, and the name only becomes apparent as you walk past the front door! Went in and straight up to floor 6. Looked a bit dark, but immediately could see a number of girls. I quickly saw a pleasant voluptuous lady, and choose her. She said her name was LaLa, and she was a real delight. We immediately went to a room & yes it wasn’t 5* but just OK. I asked "What’s the deal, this is my first time here"! She said Rp500k for everything.

    To be honest if I was here longer, I wouldn’t mind making her a regular.

  11. Is this place Hotel Melawai safe for expats ? What are the chances of a raid or trapping expats ? Is it worth a try ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Perfectly safe, the chances are near 0. Even safer and with much prettier girls, try Malioboro/ALexis or cheaper: Classic Hotel

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks for the info regarding safety of expats in Hotel Melawai. Any nearer "safe" places to Thamrin area. And reasonable too.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Which area is Alexis ? Whats the price range there ?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Near Thamrin, maybe Hotel Classic. Alexis is in North Jakarta, Ancol, and it's very expensive... type Alexis Jakarta on internet and you'll find all the info you need..

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks, But where in Hotel Classic ? Safe for expats ? Is it expensive ? Roughly charges ?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Classic Hotel; go to 2nd floor to find up to 100 women of all types from small and tiny to big-breasted and long, and everything in between. Price for the room is 284.000 rupiah (don't ask me why that amount), already including full service. You pay in advance at the counter and can tip the girl accordingly after you're done with her. ;)

    This place is completely safe, inside a hotel and safely located along Samanhudi road in the Chinatown of Jakarta, Pasar Baru area. Any cabbie would know how to get there.

  18. I just came back from 5+1, on my lunch break, I dropped in to see what the daytime girls looked like. I got to say I was impressed, first it was 1PM and there was about 25 girls there, second, they must only hire girls with large breasts because the majority of these girls where stacked. I'll go back when I have more time, the ladies where mostly very attractive. Plus it's right by my work!

    ReplyDelete
  23. alexis is over priced , though many beautiful girls, ( hence the price) exotic Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese. all leggy and slim and most did boob job (hence the price) Thai girl s fell a little ut of the boat with same pricing as local girls.Funny enough the batch of Chinese girls were all gazing at me when i came alone. never tried a ''China ''Chinese girl though.Maribaya you can get 2 girls 1 mill RP and no rush service, they are open to many things and are still jolly and good natured.

  37. Halo All.
    Is it open today?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Went there and found one of the most sordid place i have been in jakarta... Between a FJ in such a place of a HJ in place such as Delta, the choice is clear for me.

    For a FJ, Fortune and Oasis are of a different class.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Please someone tell me the rates nowadays?

    ReplyDelete
  40. From last week :
    Room @400,000 IDR per hour (outrageous)
    FJ @ 500,000 IDR

    ReplyDelete
  41. Does anybody know if this place is still open.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Still open, went there Sat arvo @6pm for a quick one. FJ 500k, 2beers and a pocari sweat for the girl (she needed her energy levels up right) was another 100k.
    Great service though - BBBJ, rimming, kissing GFE, and various positions. Probably 15girls, from 5's to 8's. Surprising quality for the seediness of the bar/rooms.
    Delta, MyPlace, Fortune etc etc are much newer, cleaner... but this si s alittle slice of seediness heaven that some of us like...
    The bar has seen better days thats for sure, rooms tired, but clean.

    ReplyDelete
  43. thanks for the info

    ReplyDelete
  44. just been to 5+1 and can say it is still good. 6.00pm and 15 girls and all fresh for the evening shift. 500k complete with GFE and all positions. will return.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Maribaya is still a good place to go. The fee as mentioned is correct. Be careful a girl named Qori (at daytime service) is offering sex without condom as she is doing this with her customers in private apartments.

    ReplyDelete

  48. Girls are nice, cost Rp 500,000 each for 1 hour. Ya rooms are run down, but there's little competition. I get very good service from my favorites and in my opinion despite the lack of live music and 'atmosphere' (it's a bit quiet here) it's good value.

    ReplyDelete
  49. and the complete damage for full package incl. room, girl and fj is?

    ReplyDelete
  50. 500k for room n girl 1 hour seesion + 50k girl's tip

    ReplyDelete
  51. The place needs a make over, but the girls are good.

    ReplyDelete
  52. AREAS lived on the 6th floor, hotel intercourse, the joint behind hotel Ciputa, Kota Indah ...l back in the day. There are many places to monger all over DKI.

    The other option is to take Ayam from the store, street or office. If you're a foreigner and under 40 you should live it up outside of the mongering joints.

    Rule 1: don't fall for the girl, rule 2: see rule 1

    Rule 3: find the light skinned Sunda or Chinese and treat her with respect, just never fall for her. Too many fish in the sea.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ëvery time I'm in Jakarta I visit Maribaya at least twice, and more often if I can can. Usually the afternoon shift and the last few years mostly two girls. It is so much fun having one girl give you a BBBJ and the other one doing a thorough rim job at the same time :-D

    ReplyDelete
  54. Agree with most earlier comments. Went there for the first time a couple of nights ago at about 10:45. Was told the place was closing in 30 minutes. Went to 6th floor and found the bar down the hallway. There were only about 4 or 5 girls there and maybe two other customers with girls, and they were in regular street clothes, all sitting on the couch. Not sure if they usually dress sexy, but not when they're getting ready to close? Anyway, I ordered a beer and from the couch the girls shouted, "Massage?" I walked over and checked what was available (they didn't even both to stand up.) I pointed out the best of the bunch which was about a 6 or 7. We went to the room where we immediately undressed. She invited me to the shower where we washed up, then dried off. I laid on the bed where she gave an unskilled massage for a few minutes. I flipped over and she gave a very passable BBBJ. She put a cover on me and rode cowgirl style for a bit. We finished in missionary, then went back to the shower to clean up. Nothing fancy, tired out room, but clean as described earlier. Gave her a tip, I think 100k or so, then paid for the room and beer at the 6th floor desk (the bar was closed and dark by then, and the staff seemed in a hurry to get home). Went back down and headed off to Top Gun to finish the night. Total damage with tip and beer was around 750k. I would go back.

    1. Maribaya girls are 600k per girl for one hour. Yes you can have 1, 2, 3 or more depending on your enthusiasm and of course, your cash status ha ha. Sorry no discount for house guests or regulars like me :( Quality of service is very high, the girls pride themselves on it, but be sensible- condoms are a must and it's real life not a porn movie. Yes of course safe, secure and discreet so relax have fun.

  86. Just called in for a beer, it had been about 10 years since my last visit but the bar, rooms and decor is still the same. Current price, girl and room is now Rp. 600,000.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Many times I dropped in ‘for a beer or two’ and 3 hours later stumbled out minus Rp. 600,000 and beers and ‘something for her’. Yes the décor has not changed much, yes it’s looking a little aged (aren’t we all?) But the girls provide the best in Jakarta. It’s 600k+ very well spent.
