  1. Chakran Rocks!

    “From BTS Ari, it’s a easy walk to Chakran down Soi Aree to Soi 4. After entering you go upstairs to change. There is a well equipped exercise room, showers and a multi level dark room area. New on the rooftop is BANGKOK ‘s only gay Japanesse style Onsen! In addition to a large hot tub spa, there is a dry heat sauna and wet heat steam room. A treat are the outside showers, a bar and several rest areas where anything can happen.... The first floor has bar and food service plus a massage service available with hot guys. The owner told me the renovations include construction of rooms for guests who wish to spend the night. Chakran is a good place to visit.!! Go there, relax, have fun, enjoy yourself.“

  2. DIRTY & POOR MANAGEMENT

    “I arrived at 1.45pm on a Sunday, reading that it would open at 2 pm. At 2.15pm I was told the sauna and jacuzzi were not open till 4 pm. The place looked dirty, the floor was dirty, the pool cold and suspect...old towels on the floor. AVOID AT ALL COST.“

  3. An interesting Asian experience

    “Chakran is off the beaten gay track but nonetheless located in a good area with interesting restaurants and BTS links. At around 4pm on a Sunday I was greeted with a smile and paid 360 Baht including one free drink at the bar. One part terrazzo floor glamour, one part construction site and (if you look closely at the roof top areas) one part delapidation, this sprawling facility feels a bit ad hoc in its floor plan and design. Nevertheless it does have a bit of an upmarket feel and interesting themed features, although the sauna and steam room seemed disproportionately small. The buff, cute boys lined up on tiered plinths in the bar lend Chakran a certain meat market appeal, which evidently finds favour with its predominantly Asian clientele as I was one of only two Europeans. Clearly selling massage services is the core business. Whilst not for me, I can see that some would find Chakran enormously appealing.“

  4. Amazing place; must see with your own eyes

    “I have been visiting this place and I was very impressed with the unique decorations, lay - out, staffs, and services. The massage was great-clean, friendly staffs no pushy, great drinks. Make sure, you go early on the weekend or public holidays. Unfortunately, we had only two weeks vacations and had found this place our last couple days. We will be back again. We wish we had such a nice place in US. Keep up great jobs.“

  5. Not too farang friendly

    “Went on a Friday evening and was the only westerner there. Defintely got the cold shoulder from what was almost exclusively Thai and Chinese crowd. The crowd was mostly 20s and 30s, with a couple 40s here and there. Plenty of gym bunnies but more than a few average physiques, as am I. Got a few gropes in the dark room. Facilities were fine and plenty of action was taking place on the rooftop after the sun went down. Entry was 360 baht with a ticket for 110 for what I assume was a drink in the bar....where the working boys hang out. But hey, check it out for yourself. Maybe I am a hideous troll that gets shunned everywhere else in the world and it was nothing at all against westerners. ;-) (but I don't think so....)“

  9. A place to relax and to have fun

    “If you’re looking for a place to relax and to have fun at the same place, this place would be your answer. I love the open air rooftop with a lot of spaces to lie down on. Sometimes they provide you a pillow. And another part of the rooftop, they have a hot pool where I can relax and see the sky.

    If you wanna have fun with naked party, they usually start everyday around 7.30 pm where there’s a lot of young Asian guys. Asian lovers might love this activity. They also provide free condoms and lube so you can have fun either in this outdoor spaces or in private room on 4th floor.“
