Jalan Drupadi 20,Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia
Located on a road just behind Dyana Pura on Drupadi Street, the men-only Banana Spa offers a range of Balinese and Banana oil massages and body scrubs.
Friendly and trained male masseurs. Out-call service available.
one of the worst in bali
“I have been here three times served by different masseurs every time and all experiences have been consistently bad. Masseurs are not interested and give very lame massage. All they wanted were the “extra service” they want to offer and how much tip it will cost. Unless you want “services” other than a good massage and pay a huge amount, then I suggest to avoid this spa.”

Still the best in Bali
“I read a lot of the reviews, I think a lot are posted by owners of other gay spas in Bali as they are Jealous.
The spa is the only one in the gay area of Bali ,it has the most staff and the largest amount of treatment rooms, and always friendly and welcoming.”

“Easy going, got a really good therapist and returned the next day for another massage. Full body, body to massage was excellent, shower afterwards as well as the therapist joined me. Overall very good experience, only negative point, the massage table was old and not very comfortable.”

“I was talked into a four handed massage and handled solo I think till I turned over and naturally saw cute Pedro but told I needed to pay $100 cash U.S. For ending and I had already tipped $15 up front.”

Miss ADE at Coco Grande spa
“Masseur ADE, when you will come and work at Coco Spa again? Me like you and good massage, me relax and good. Me came to the spa and you not there. Hope to use your service again, I will pay you more, more and more. Coco Grande Spa in Seminyak – no good without ADE. *Love”

“I tried the the massage in the jacuzzi, it was wonderful, I was nude and the therapist nude, and there was a slow gentle massage in the hot tub, how relaxing and divine, staff are friendly and so many to choose from I could not count.”

A great experience
“I read all the reviews here and seen some very mixed comments so when I was in Bali last week I decided to give Banana Spa Bali a try for myself. What I found was a tastefully decorated spa with very clean facilities. The staff could not be more helpful they sat down with me to explain the massage menu. Then I was given the opportunity to choose from a collection of handsome masseurs. I enjoyed an excellent massage that left me with a big smile on my face. I would certainly recommend you give it a try next time you are in Bali.”

More miss than hit
“This place is more miss than hit. Three friends all went together. Bad experience. The 70 minute massage went for 25 minutes. The Masseur left the room several times. Didn’t do my back. Turned me over and demanded 500,000. What a joke. Go to Coconut Grande. Far better.”

Bad bad bad
“I agree with the other reviewers here that this place is nothing but a moneyboy haven. If you are looking for a real massage with a happy ending, go elsewhere. Here they just touch you lightly for a few minutes, teased you and then started pestering for tips. If you decline, they sulk. These guys got severe attitude problem. Be warned.”

EXACTLY as expected
“I knew exactly what I was getting into going to Banana Spa (from reading the pretty accurate reviews here) and it was great. It’s a little hard to find–just keep walking, you’re not on the wrong street. I was greeted warmly by three masseurs and was given a great massage by one of them (whose name I’ve unfortunately forgotten). I had a sunburn, so the banana creme felt great. My masseur’s fingernails were a little long, but he was otherwise very attentive. The shower room is a complete horror, but there’s another one on the other side of the spa, so see if they’ll show you to that one. A little seedy? A little flirty?Yes. But what happens in Bali stays in Bali. ;)”

there are better places
“Went to Banana Spa few days ago. The welcoming was rather cool, not very heartily. There were four guys to choose from, one looking a bit better than the other.
I got a nice 70 minutes massage, though well overpriced at 250000 Rp (excluding tip) for ordinary massage (available elsewhere in Seminyak for 100000 Rp). Also one should realize (I did too late unfortunately) that scented oil means oil with a banana smell. There are more appealing aromas.
Extra service was provided at 500000 Rp (which included tip).
The massage room has no shower, neither is the bathroom attached. You had to walk down the staircase. The shower had just a little lukewarm water without any pressure, not sufficient to rinse all the banana oil away.”

Best massage ever
“First time going to a massage place like this. It was amazing. My masseur ‘agung’ was very cute and had nice gentle warm hands. If you do go ask for him and if you need additional service just ask him he will not disappoint. I went the next day as well because ‘agung’ looked after me so well. I will be returning when I’m back in bali. Thank you for the great experience.”

“I went to this spa for couple of times and here is my comment:
– massage: the massage is ok. I would rate them 6 out of 10
– in the middle of massage the masseur keep asking for tips, I know their pay is small but I think its wrong.”

“I read all the comments about Banana spa, about the bad comments, so that make me excited and try to come, and what did I get. It turns out all the bad comments are just nonsense. I had what I wanted to have, friendly people, the best massage I have ever had. I tried some gay massage in Bali, this is the best one. I gave $50, for tip with no sex, because I really appreciated the massage. ”

Still Best and biggest in Bali

Don't waste your time
“This is the worst massage place in Bali, I paid 400,000 for a two hour massage that finished in 90 minutes. All in all not a great massage experience.”

Banana Spa - Avoid This Place
“This place is a rip-off. You pay 250,000 rp for a very ordinary massage, nothing special, that you could get for 80,000 rp down the road in any average massage parlour. You are supposed to be paying for a 70-minute massage but after 50 minutes, the masseur asks for more money. Try some place else.”

“This was a great experience for me. I enjoyed every moment of my service, except for the room being kinda cool lol. I forgot the guys name – it started with a K, I believe, he was very nice and adorable. He has big ears (in a cute way) and a nice smile. I got the body scrub and body massage for 400,000 rupiah a 2 hour session. My own lasted 3 though which is about $34. A great price that in the States would run well over $100. The scrub was different than from others I had but good none the less and the massage was awesome. You can request additional services if you like, but all in all great experience in every way!”

“I do not recommend this place if you are looking for a real massage. Massage itself lasted for only 20 minutes and the remaining 10 minutes was you know what. The masseur asked for a 200,000 rupiah tip. In total, I spent 450,000 for a 20-minute massage. Wished I opted for the hotel massage which is only 100,000 rupiah for a one whole hour of a real soothing massage. The towel smells.”

Definitely not recommended
“Not a place to go for any sort of massage. It is all a front for moneyboys who also work the bars. See them yourself – daytime at the spa, nights at the bars.be careful.”

“I tried all the gay massage places in Bali on my recent holiday and Banana Spa was the best. It had the most friendly staff, 12 or more therapists to choose from and had at least 8 different styled rooms. Also the massage prices are much lower than the competition. Try once and you will quickly become friend of this great place forever.”

“Read the reviews and visited this week. Nice choice of guys and mine was very eager to please with a great smile and cute body. Massage was as hard or soft as I liked. Really soothing and professional. The tip to the masseur at the end was worth it (he was very accommodating to my wishes). Definitely going back in few days. I highly recommend it. But it is what it is, and you get what you pay for.”

“I visit Bali 2 or 3 times a year and only recently discovered Banana Spa. The surroundings are OK,the massages are OK, BUT the guys are quite extraordinary. No names to be mentioned but the guy I chose most recently gave me a really nice massage (the best I have had there). He has now become a friend and I can’t wait to get back there in July. The place could do with a face lift and really should provide music and refreshments,but it is a hit with me.”

“I read many reviews so I gave it a try. The experience was overall disappointing. Shower facilities outside the treatment room, no background music but noise from construction work outside, the treatment itself was rather poor, and not really of therapeutic use. I asked the therapist where he learned give a massage. The answer was that it was handed on, and that it´s a cultural and family thing.”

“I am a frequent traveler to Bali and every time I am there I treat myself to a massage. I have tried most of the Gay Spas in the area but I still keep going back to Banana Spa Bali. They have the best location and what I think are the best looking masseurs. Each time I’m there I get a great massage plus the extras I like.”
John on 05-08-2013 | Problem with this review?
“Saw many good reviews, so I went to experience it myself when i arrived in Bali. After the session, I was totally disappointed. It did not meet my expectation. The massage was just ok, below average. The only things that I liked was the banana oil which they used. Nice smell and refreshing. The masseur did asked if I want an extra service, which I did not understand. So I said no. The shower room is located on the ground floor which I found inconvenient as my massage room was on the first floor. There was no music playing in the background. All I could hear was the traffic noise. When I paid the bill, the counter guy asked me to pay tip to the masseur. I was hesitated to give a tip because it was not good. But I did not have a choice, so I gave the masseur some tip. There was no refreshment offered. Overall it was bad experience and I would not return in future. For what I have paid, I can have a complete spa treatments at another spa. Not value for money.”

“Yesterday I went to Banana Spa Bali for the first time not knowing what a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was easy to find because of the big yellow banana hanging out front. Once inside I found the place warm and comfortable. After choosing my masseur and deciding on the banana scented oil massage he saw to it and made it a wonderful experience with a very professional massage ….. it definitely will not be my last visit to Banana Spa Bali.”
