2018-12-31 Dark Room - Asian bears and their admirers @ Babylon Bangkok - from 12pm | read more

Bangkok’s best-known gay sauna and one of the longest-running gay venues. Babylon’s extensive facilities include a large pool, steam room, dry sauna, jacuzzi, dark room, maze and private cabins.

You can top up your tan, swim, workout, enjoy a meal at the surprisingly good restaurant, sip a beer in the chill-out areas, or simply unwind in the hands of a male masseur. Lockers are provided. Bring cash but leave valuables at your hotel or put them in one of the security boxes, next to the reception.

Monogamous gay couples can enjoy Babylon’s relaxed 100% environment as much as anyone else. We recommend bringing your own flip-flops (and gym gear if you want to work out).

Sunday afternoons are busiest. During SongKran Festival in April, Babylon fills up very quickly, and admission is on a ‘one in one out’ basis.

  1. Not what it was

    “Been going for a few years. These days it seems they take customers for granted. The cleaners have been there for years and know they won't get fired. You don't see them clean any of the cabins. Several of the cabin doors have been broken and unlockable for years. The urinal in the ground floor toilet was broken five years ago and has not been repaired. The cheapest massage is 800 baht, even though the website still says 400 baht. Apart from the weekends, the place is dead. Despite this, the management make no effort to encourage custom by price incentives.“

  2. Great experience!

    “I love Babylon! So many hot guys there, and I met one guy two days in a row, and of course we played for a second time. It was a really hot encounter with him. Wish I could see him again! The truth is, you can meet the same people here.“

  3. been half a dozen times

    “I was in Thailand twice last year. I stayed at babylon as a hotel and was thrilled with my room and breakfast. The Sauna is always a GREAT time on Saturday Nights and Sunday most of the day. Super Friendly international crowd. Met my current ex boyfriend in the dark room... he's Chinese“

  4. Steam room

    “Been staying in Babylon Hotel for a few days now, and have enjoyed my complementary sauna pass regularly. Until a few days ago when somebody decided to turn the steam rooms - that were until then perfect to sit and relax and play - on maximum level. Unpleasant. Impossible to stay in and relax (if that is what you want to do there).
    Otherwise... still a nice place. A bit less crowded than it used to be, perhaps?“

    “I have visited this institution since it opened some years ago and it has done nothing but improve. It is a credit to the owner, his staff and the people of Bangkok. It was great, and yes, I feel that there should be more access to condoms and lube, but hey, the restaurant was wonderful and the service just great. Keep up the good work, and yes, I have stayed in their hotel section and it is international by any standard.“

  6. Another great stay

    “As I enjoyed a beer with 29 year old Francesco, an Italian from Doha, I reflected on the congenial atmosphere of the central courtyard whilst admiring the detail of the hanging gardens of Babylon to the classic tunes produced by an accomplished jazz trio.

    To all the nay sayers who question the light levels, the security, the cleanliness, the staff, the age of other patrons and various other misconceived ideas, I say what a load of bollocks. Babylon is a beautiful sanctuary where you can truly relax, have fun and meet other men.“

  7. the worst experience in my life

    “The sauna looks good and has a big structure, but the services no much good.
    I went there in 13/03/18 and I had an accident in the wet floor close to massage room (the very old and plain slippers were the main cause of the accident.) My arm broke and I had to stay in the hospital for 5 days. I had to do a surgery to fix the arm. The sauna's manager or another person from the sauna staff never did call me to know about my situation. My vacation ends in the second day in Thailand.“

  8. Can I inquire?

    “How much is the entrance fee and how much it will cost to use the facilities here? Please advise. Thanks“

    • Are you a foreigner?

      “Most things in Thailand are cheap, unless you get ripped off. Entrance fee is reasonable, but the place is boring, unless it’s a naked party on weekends.“

  9. No more condoms?

    “Been back to this great venue after some time... noticed some changes:
    - no more condoms provided in the locker (why, everyone on PREP and no more necessary ?)
    - only 1 towel (instead of 2 as was always the case)
    - the steam room is too hot to support for longer than 5 minutes (where did this come from ?).
    But... yes, still a great place“

    • I love Babylon

      “I've been going to Babylon since the mid-90s. It used to be in a different location. The new location is even better (I didn't think it was possible) - I've been to many saunas around the world, and this is by far the best I've ever been to. It is remarkably beautiful and diverse. There is a beautiful pool and garden/courtyard, gym, snack bar, restaurant (with really good food) massage (is mediocre), cabins you can use (without having to pay extra) jacuzzi, steam, sauna, on and on it goes.

      As the night wears on, different areas are opened. Be patient. Have fun. I've read a lot of complaints about the entry staff. If you are expecting balloons and a marching band, forget it. Entry is very low key. You pay, you get a slip of paper, you bring that to another guy who gives you a key. They are not happy to see you because they have hundreds of guests every day. Just get over wanting those famous Thai smiles. You know why you are there. Enjoy yourself.“

    “Went for a few hours last week, mainly to get some last sun before returning home. There were many people around the pool with few chairs left, but I found a chair to sit. I don't think there is full time sun around the entire pool due to trees above.

    Great pool service. Great gym. Great restaurant and the place is clean.

    I made the rounds in the sauna and was well received. And the topped off the afternoon with an incredible massage by Leo. A VERY VERY talented young man, and very nice. Thanks for a great last day in Bangkok. I will be back.“

  13. Fantastic sauna

    “I have visited this place a good number of times in 2017. I love it. The sauna is perfect. Facilities are fab. I have always have great experience there. Lovely, hot, friendly guys from Asia and Europe/ US.

    I had an amazing time at the Foam Party which was the dream came true.

    I defo recommend the place and I very much looking forward to my visit again and again.

  14. You need to be experienced

    “Been to this sauna a few times. If you like horny daddies then you are in luck. It's clean and well run to a point. But be aware just like in the UK you need to have your wits about you and the atmosphere can turn toxic without any warning. If you are a newbie to saunas then there are worse but I wouldn't recommend Babylon at all to a first timer. Its still one of my favourites but has past its prime. Whatever you do don't stay in their hotel either as safety and security is a lot to be desired at times. The other facilities are some of the best for this kind of establishment despite some looking a bit tired. I would recommend this place just to try the once.“
