  1. Massage Attraction

    “Offer fit guys for massage, dark air-con room for fun, sauna facilities under renovation, a bit messy, overall satisfactory.“

  2. Second experience

    “I made a second try on January 7th after a 1st one in April 2017.

    Same experience : May be 20 money boys around the bar and only 3 customers in the whole place : 2 farang (me included) and a young asian man.

    The staff cannot speak English. I asked 2 different people what the theme of the 7:30 pm party and they did not understand me... only repeating "party 7:30 pm". I will never go back there again.“

  3. Good experience

    “I have been to this sauna yesterday afternoon, and overall I enjoyed the time there. I arrived around 4 pm, just 3 customers inside including me. But after 5pm, there were more people coming, and mostly are Asians.

    The highlight in this place is first, there is a gym inside the building, many fit and young men was working out. Second, there is a pool on the first floor, and it feels relaxing and refreshing. For the other things like massage and party, I did not join so no comments on that. I personally recommend this place!“

  4. No body come

    “I went to Chakarn on 6 July 2017at 6 pm, its only 2 guest inside. I wait until 7pm, nobody come in I leave...
    Perhaps Chakarn is now just for massage with a gorgeous guys, theres so many guys only w blue jeans at Bar area waiting for the guests.
    But at the others area are empty.“

  5. Remake of Chakran

    “I gave up visiting this place 2 years ago since there were hardly any customers then, and the ones that were there were young Thais who made a point of shunning this farang. Now the place has undergone a remake and the V Club has been brought down to the lower level. I wondered why so many young Thais were now so friendly towards this farang until I realized that these friendly boys were from the V Club and were obviously interested to get a customer. Well, there is masses of eye candy to enjoy, and the sauna facilities are the same as before. On the 4th floor there is also a new steam room. The atmosphere is nice and friendly so I can recommend this place for one.“

  6. Party night

    “I was at the naked party Friday evening. It's a beautiful roof top garden with view over nice area and at the same time so people are naked. The roof top is so big that there is made with trees small hidden corners with beds...really HOT.

    When the naked party starts everybody goes to area at the roof top garden. And forget about the shy Asians. Here they go crazy, maybe because of there is so few white guys (we were only two white guys) and BTW many from China and Taiwan. They place provided free condoms and lube.

    After the party I was at the swimming pool. Here you can also go naked (not a must) and there is a little waterfall where I could hide with another guy.

    Combined with the Chakran sauna is a massage (with more), it was ok that I as sauna guest go there and say hello to the professional guys and ordered food (nice Thai food for very low prices). It was fun and cost to get the environment of the massage club. But after food and beer I just went back to sauna and met some Asian guys. I guess many foreign Asians go to Chakran but I felt very very very welcome as white guy (or "faring" as they call me).“

  7. Worst Ever!

    “Saturday night, NO ONE AT ALL! At the reception, they asked for 250 baht, but it suppose to be 150 baht.. luckily I did my research! I though I'm in a haunted or abandon house as they are not well maintained and no one at all.... worst experience ever, will not visit again.“

  8. Asoke on Sep 19, 2016

    “Checked their website BEFORE deciding to go to Chakran. Clicked on rates - the website is in English - and saw that their prices are in Thai numerals. In Thailand this is rare and is always an indication of intention to overcharge foreigners. Hate such blatant attempts at gouging and thus decided NOT to go.“

  9. go there for swimming

    “I went there on a saturday night, expecting it to be a happening place.
    The Swimming Pool is a cool place with a waterfall and a place hidden behind it. Next to it was a bubble pool. All with maximal 3 guys to attend. Could be nice, but if it is deserted on a Saturday what will you expect during the week?
    The cruising area is very dark and has hidden stairs everywhere. Dangerous. Rawang ! At least it was reasonably frequented. The cabins have small windows for voyeurs and that attracted many Thais. (3 - 4 farangs I noticed @ Chakran within 5 hours.
    In a kind of cage an arranged a show with 4 guys started but even that area was very dark so it was not possible to see what was really going on.
    More like silhouette game.
    I found someone who really got horny over time - so I will not complain.
    But compared to Underground the guys there are really not much in for the game.
    Chakran stays open until 5.50 during weekends, but after 11 only about 4 guys could be spotted and cleaning had stopped hours ago so the place was in a mess with used paper tissues everywhere.
    In short: a cool place to go for swimming and fun as a bonus.“

    • AGREED

      “I concur. I went to this sauna back in 2014. I really enjoyed the pool. However, I also enjoyed the gym equipment, the foam party and the steam rooms. I didn't hook up at all. I am a Hebrew (Black American) male and Thais and other gay Asians don't like to publicly be seen with us.“

  10. Only if you prefer Asians

    “Its Songkran so I guess there are more people here. (+) 99% is Asian, mostly Chinese. There were lots of hot guys with big chest, nice for your eyes
    (-) Only 1 pro but a lot of cons. 350Baht is way too high for this kind of place. There are 1 jacuzzi nobody used, 1 small gym (who the hell go to this place to use the gym??), 1 steam & dry sauna - nobody used too coz of darkness & too small size & the "Naked Zone" - dark updown stairs w some private cabins.
    The "Naked Zone" is not so naked coz everyone still wears their underwear. Cabins are so dirty, a little bit weird smell.

    Today I got 1 chitchat w a Chinese guy, some touching w a Vnese. I really think Im lucky coz I really don't see too much actions & the atmosphere there is not really tempting. So, only visit if u prefer Asians. If not, stay away.“

  11. Dirty - dark floors

    “This sauna needs a cleaner. The place was with dirty towels every where and rooms were very dirty. Nobody cleans there also there were too many dark floors so you can fall down so easily. Also not many people and too far from subway station.“

  12. Can give a miss

    “You can give this place a miss. I've been to Thailand a few times and often I go for a massage at the VClub which is upstairs from the Chakran - in fact you can look over the pool and walk down some stairs and into the Sauna's swimming pool area from the VClub.

    Usually I just have a drink looking over the pool and didn't bother ever going the Chakran, one time I was early so decided to go in. What disappointment! Very empty with a handful of Western guys walking around looking bored. When I went in they won't let me rest in peace always chasing. I prefer younger Western guys and as I'am tall I also like tall guys, is it short week I wonders.

    The pool has a cloudy milky colour so I didn't swim and the sauna was too hot to have a proper sauna or steam, and dark almost black so difficult to avoid if someone in already and easy to burn. It just feel like it should be shut down.

    I think better if VClub take over then I think it would be extreme happiness, masseurs can show off and you can choose more relaxed then have a sauna before or after massage. Even busy upstairs always empty downstairs.“
