R3 hosts weekly themed nights (Underwear, Naked, etc) and monthly special events like Big O-Party – check the website for agenda. Foreigner-friendly, however pricing policy discriminates against men over 50. Open 24 hours.

  1. Spectacular foam party

    “Was here for The Splash O-Party & Foam-O Party on October 29, my first visit to R3. Bar far the best sauna experience I've had in Bangkok and perhaps anywhere else. I strongly recommend it. Between 150-200 guys packed in one room with lots of action. It's almost surreal. Condoms and lube handed out at the door. As other comments below state, there is an age discrimination policy regarding the entrance fee. But without it, R3 wouldn't be the same. Plenty of guys are in fabulous shape, with 90% in their 20s and 30s. R3 has succeeded in creating a particular atmosphere and attracting a certain clientele, none of which would be possible with its entrance fee policy. Although I'm glad I went, readers should be warned that R3 - like it's sister Sauna Mania - is largely Asian for Asian (I'm white, with a beard, in decent shape, in my early 30s). Non-Asians - even if you're in good shape and young - may find the experience here frustrating, though action shouldn't be too elusive. I ended the night on a high note with a beautiful Thai guy with a gorgeous body. He was sitting alone upstairs. I approached him, starting chatting, and we took it from there (I was surprised I wasn't rejected). My advice if you're not Asian: Go during one of R3's events on Saturdays for the experience, but keep expectations low.“

      “I think I saw u order a drinks at bar - 5th floor. I drink Singha beer and chatting with my friend there. You look nice! No wonder you have a great time with good looking Thai guys! I agree that if R3 have no agish policy. They can not make fantastic atmosphere like this - crowded with young guys & in shape.“

  2. What an impersonal place

    “I am young (24) well built physique BUT I am interested in older mature guys. Why? They are mature in all ways. I cannot stand giggling young fairy princesses strutting their perfect little bodies but when they open their mouths "dumb" comes out. So I was shocked to see the utter age discrimination with entrance fees. Like a lot of comments say : go somewhere else ........ and I did and I was not sorry. If you cannot respect every gay person and their rights then I cannot support your place.“

    • Discrimination should not be tolerated

      “I agree with your review. Like Sauna Mania, this place has started a discrimination that is unprecedented. It is not enough for us young people to have fun among us and ignore the mistreatment of older gays. The reason is simple: we will ALL be old one day. Like "J" writes in "no more argument about age issue", let's ignore this place and go to Babylon and other good saunas that don't discriminate.“

      “Age discrimination for what? So you can filter a handful of old well manner men? What's the point? I never seen in the past more than a handful of over 50 anyway. They don't go to places where people will not be interested on them. Stop discrimination and deal with bad karma.“

  5. Songkran 2016

    “I decided to go to R3 after a few of my friends told me that its d best place rite now.. And it is! The place is easily accessible using mrt, though u need to walk and be alert of the small signage. The place is looking new. As I went there during the songkran festival, there are so many guys. Extremely cute Thai and other Asians. They are all friendly, provided ur in shaped and most of them into other Asian. Sticky rice mostly. My advice .. Sauna is a meat market.. This place should be a miss if you are not lean/slim/tone/muscular or to d very least average. And yes they check passport to determine ur age, so pls bring in urs when visiting - or else 500b or more.“

  6. BKK visitor

    “The good: Modern, clean, very busy on event nights from about 8pm. The bad: Hard to find, discriminates and overcharges for Over 50, Thai prefers Thai here. Non-event nights are a waste of time. Several occasions I left without action. Additional comment: The Big-O and Bubble-O (foam) events can be quite wild, but for foreigners it can be frustrating to be rejected by so many Thais. Also very odd to have these events with a "compere" narrating in Thai, who also ends the event too early. As a visitor I was not made welcome by staff nor locals.“

  7. New year eve 2016

    “It was my 2nd trip to R3 , the reason why I come to bangkok on NYE at d very last min. All i can say, it is the best sauna to have fun! I hooked up with a cute Canadian Chinese, then a hot Thai with 6 pax and finally another hot Thai. I was aftering one more guy, but he went back early, however we managed to meet again at mania the next day n hav so much fun. My advice- During special events -- come early! Like 6-8pm else there wont be any locker left. And its easier to use mrt ! Trust me! I used cab and the driver sent me elsewhere! This is d place for in shaped guys mostly asian/thais i wouldnt recommend u to go here if u are not.“

  8. Could Not Believe it

    “I was there just this past Friday Morning at around 1am till 5 am. First off the club was full of good looking Thais and a few Foreigners. Lots of endless walking around as usual when there are so many cute guys. I could not believe that the Toilets had no toilet paper! Been all over the world and this was a first. When I asked the guy said take a shower after you go to the bathroom. Come on. Common sense and Hygiene. There was no shortage of toilet paper in the booths though. That is just plain stupid. You could use your towel for cleaning after sex. Been to clubs in Europe, South America, Central America and North America. Never seen such a lack of common sense. I did have fun with one guy eventually but I did not find this club overly friendly. I am in shape too . Not a toothpick but well toned.“

  10. AWESOME. Hard to find.

    “GREAT sauna. Clean. Off course sometimes there will be paper and even used condoms around in the very dark areas as there is action - But its a clean place (I have seen many saunas in big European cities that was far less clean)! Reception area very nicely decorated. Plenty of shower facilities but missing soap dispenser (strange actually). Bare area with appropriate dim light. Decent sauna - not so big and to strong light for people to get into action. An actually kind of cool steam room - with a little kind of a maze. Steam room completely dark - a pity. It was too dark - very very dim light would be good and more enticing for the guys to play. There is a staff member in each floor. Thats good to ensure things dont get "to much". Staff is either dressed very lightly or naked. But cool actually with a goodlooking staff on each floor. Location. Really out of the way (far from Silom) and a little hard to find (stick to description - not the map). Very nice crowd - generally really good looking young Thai / Asians. I think I was the only westerner - if you are not into Asians this is not a place for you! Double charge if over 50 years - and you have to show passport. Who the hell brings a passport to a sauna??? But fine - come on. Whats all the fuzz about discrimination and all that. Give it a rest. This place apparently have an interest in attracting young local men - which suits me just perfect (I am 49 north European who like Asian). Its quite normal that young (locals) men dont have a lot of money - as well as most guys over 50 (or 40) are much better of, and thus can contribute a little extra (its not thousands of dollars we are talking about). I dont see the problem. If you see a problem then go somewhere else! Crowd. Lots of really cute thai/asians. Place is NOT suitable for elderly and out of shape people. Simply because: Location: its hard to find and you might need to walk around a bit (good lucking explaining where to go to a taxi driver...). The place: 6 floors with LOTS of stair (steep!!) to climb all the time to get around. If you are not young or in good shape I seriously think it will tire you out quite fast. The Maze(s). Very intricate mazes on all floors. You actually get lost in the beginning and thereby will do A LOT of walking around. Its fun (when you are in shape). Also the mazes are many places so narrow that a belly will have a hard time getting through - seriously!!! The crowd: I just don't think old or out of shape people will have a lot of fun there - its a younger goodlooking crowd. Service is really missing. No smile when arrived. Bartender is not smiling, but not unpleasant as such - just not smiling. Really ok - I didnt go to interact with the staff!! I DONT recommend this place for people who are not in good shape. Both because of the location and all the stairs, but certainly also because its a place for young guys who are likely to only want to play with more grown-up guys if they are good-looking with good a body (honestly). I have good looks and body and had great times with several really cute guys. I WISH i didn't go there only on my last day in Bangkok. I will certainly go back. I love the place!! And I love the crowd.... ;-) !!“

  12. Don't Assume they Care

    “The fact that the place discriminates against age by charging double on some days should be enough to tell you that the management only care about money. Customer satisfaction doesn't even enter into the picture so don't waste your time & energy getting pissed off. You are assuming that the customer has rights and the owners care. In both cases, you don't and they don't. Spend your money elsewhere and you will find friendlier people.“

  14. Amazed

    “I went to R3 on 26 october and this is my comment. Location - its easy to find, just use the Skytrain and follow the guide provided on this page. Surrounding - kinda strange place for a sauna though I did see massage parlor nearby, but this is Bangkok, its everywhere. The place - it was my first time and i kinda like it spacious and big area. As i went on twilight o-party, I was only given a very short towel. The sanok starts at 7 sharp, I would rather you experience it yourself than tell all here, Patron - mostly Thais, they have more good looking guys than mania (x counting in the models) Xxx - I am 30s Asian with gym lean body, got approached by several guys but I declined any personal moment. The guys here are friendly, all you got to do is smile. If you around 20-30s slim to gym bod Asian guy into Asian/Thai, this would be the 3rd best place for you after Mania and Underground39 If you thinking of going, I suggest go to their special party on weekend. Check their website for info.“

Staffs are friendly, facilities is nice and looks fresh. The local customers are amazing! So lucky for me that they can also speak English (because i dont speak Thai :p). I came there from 2:00 to 6:00 and it was not too crowded, not too boring. Will be there again soon!“

    “Decided to go to r3 on Monday, as it was naked, it's quite a MRT ride from Silom an then a short walk, about 1/2 hr from Silom an do going the shortcut. It's a nice place sans guys on naked night and the odd dozen young guys strutting around were a bore. It's not worth the bother to go, I dressed up and left shortly after, a total waste of time, some locals admit the location is bad.“

  18. Stylish, clean, quite busy, and the rice wasn't sticky

    “I feel obliged to leave a review since I used this site to help me decide where to go for my first ever sauna experience. I picked R3 on the basis that it was open 24hrs so I could slink away from my straight friends after a boozy night out! As this was my first time in a sauna, take what I say with a pinch of salt. I'll preface by saying the place is frustratingly difficult to get to. I came prepared with screenshots taken from Google Maps to show the taxi driver and we still spent ages trying to find it. There are no helpful landmarks to help find it, even with the MRT and Fortune Town Building along the main road, but the Chinese Embassy is on the corner of the needed off-road from the main Ratchadaphisek Road. Heading north approaching the Embassy, turn left and then left again at the 7/11, head to the end of the street and on the right there's a modern building with glass facade and rainbow stripes. That's R3. I arrived on a naked Thursday, very late on in the night about 1.5 hours before closing and to my surprise there were still approx. 25 people spread around equally at the bar, locker room and with most in the maze on the top floor wanting one last bit of fun before they finish the night. As the only white Westerner and non-local Thai, I was certainly a novelty focus of attention - either as a spectacle met with distance and the giggle of 'farang' when shuffling up and down the stairs, or else to quench the shy but lusty curiosities of young lads hovering awkwardly in one spot at a maze junction wanting a grope of white meat. Those who weren't interested just kept their hand flannels covering themselves. Everyone there was in their twenties at least. I can totally sympathise with reviews I've read elsewhere about age discrimination policies - it seems everyone there was below 30 and I got the impression that there's a bit of a cliquey expectation of it being a younger place and that everyone wants to keep it that way. The rooms are equipped with lube and condoms - at least that must be the case since I only received a hand towel on arrival. Showers could have done with complimentary soaps and gels but otherwise very well equipped and clean. Very impressed with facilities, cleanliness and aesthetics. Staff were friendly and answered my questions competently and happily too with a smiling welcome. Although R3 is an ageist place, at least it's not all sticky rice. I think I was there at the right time cause I can imagine the activity and traffic being a lot less if it weren't later on a decent theme night. Generally quite impressed with my first sauna experience and might have to try them out closer to home...! Cheers,“

  19. Boooooring!

    “This is the second time I go to R3 Sauna. The first time I thought "well, maybe it's because I'm farang and the crowd here is more sticky rice oriented, so I'm not lucky to have fun". But today, it was even worse. The place looked like a never-ending runway for guys. Not only I wasn't able to hook up with any guy, but I noticed that no one, absolutely no one was doing anything except for walking around and walking around. Cabins empty, dark spots empty, absolutely no action anywhere. I even tried to see if somebody was "busy" and nope, nothing. What a waste of time and space. It's a pity because R3 has very nice facilities, it's very clean and it has a lot of places to have fun. And there were many guys. But the only thing they did was catwalking everywhere. I don't think I'll go there again. Many people complained that Babylon was getting boring too, but apart from the fact that every time I go to Babylon I never leave "fun-less", I always see some action in the steam room, hot tub and in the cabins. I think I'll play safe and stick to Babylon next time.“

    “This place should be boycotted for its ageist policy of charging over 50 year olds double the price. Isn't there enough discrimination in the gay world without venues discriminating against their own? This is really poor and the gay community should give them a strong message. Stop going to this place and giving them the pink dollar. They don't deserve it. Shame on you R3. Karma will catch up with you eventually.“

  21. Stylish isn't everything, not in a sauna ka

    “I was quite disappointed by this place given the hype here. For starters its very difficult to find and when you do eventually you wonder if it was worth it. The ambiance is a bit flat as the lighting is not interesting enough, just too bright in most areas, it misses the mystery and mood which is essential in a good sauna. What is strange for a sticky rice heaven is the porn is all Western on a never ending loop. I'am Asian and a size queen so missed the young Westerners you get visiting the Babylon for example, but I like the porn. As I'am early 20's Asian buff and not into sticky it was boring for me to be constantly chased by 30 something fat Hong Kong tourists. I did meet a nice guy my age from Sweden and we left early together. Maybe it can improve eventually as the facilities are good, but I would wait a few years until they know what they're doing or get a new director. Sawadeee krap!“

  23. Boycott age discrimination

    “It's OK to give students of under 25 a discount but it's not OK to charge men over 50 at different price. This is simply age discrimination. Although this place is new, the location is not desirable, most of my Thai friends don't bother to go there because it's inconvenient. To display age discrimination like this is ugly and we all need to boycott this sauna to send the owner strong message that our gay community don't want to be divided and we won't tolerate any kind of discrimination. There are a lot of saunas in Bangkok, let's boycott this policy. Btw, I'm only 26, but hopefully when I reach 50 gay business in my community won't treat me like this“

      “agree for 1000%. This is real discrimination. And that happening in the gay world. Have been travelling around the world and visiting a lot of sauna's. Discount for younger agree fully. But nearly double the entrance price for age over 50 is a scandal. Meaning they not want older to come there.“

  25. Place sets Precedent in UGLINESS

    “I visited this place shortly after it opened and found that it had good potential. But I recently see that they now discriminate against the elder customers. People over 50 are now charged TWICE in some events, and higher in general. This is not customary in quality gay saunas. Babylon, for example, has a flat rate regardless of age. One thing is to give discounts and even free entry to younger guys to encourage their participation, something that benefits all customers, but it is a special UGLINESS to overcharge the older folks to discourage their presence. I don't find any other explanation, since every time I am there I see very few seniors, so they cannot make much money by overcharging them. Last Friday something broke down in their water supply and they had to cancel the "Orgy night" and return the money to all those who had already shown up. Thereafter, they closed down the place for a week until next Friday for "repairs". They must be losing a ton of money. I think I see the works of KARMA brought about by their discriminatory attitude that is very negative. Their management should take notice.“

  26. Ok for sticky rice

    “Nice facilities, lots of maze / corridors (but would benefit from a dark room). I went on 2 weeknights for naked guys. On both occasions there were about 25, all but one were sticky rice, so be aware westerners. Second time I decided to cut my losses early rather than endure hours of rejection and head back to Silom. Maybe if the place was jumping the odds would increase. For Thais (who pay less than westerners over 50) it would be a great destination. I can cope with the fee diff if I am being satisfied, but it was a struggle. I found the directions on their website pretty clear by Thai standards and used Google maps to help direct the taxi.“

  27. The awfulest place which I have ever been

    “The awfulest place which I have ever been. I'm so disappointed. I was so waiting this day when I can come there, and I was so sad and regret that I decided to come there. It was so crowded that people were staying in the long line and waiting his time to come in. I came the first time and off course I didn't know the system that I should have booked a ticket before like in a theater or in an airplane. I had asked several times to staff what I should have done to come in, but nobody explained me and didn't give me any ticket. I was just shortly answered that I should just wait when my turn would come. I waited almost a hour and I noticed that persons that had came after me got tickets and came in already. Why? Because they're Asians, but I'm farang? I asked in the hundred times and appeared that I have to get a ticket in order to come in, but nobody gave me it. Staff paid no attention to me. I felt myself insulted and unneeded like a garbage. This sauna actively deliver advertisements everywhere: in Line, in the Internet, in the other communities, but the can't support and provide all customers that they involved and that came there. I just spent my time and had an awful mood. I would like if somebody advise me another sauna in Bangkok where I can get a place, where I won't be distilled like this place.“

    • Go somewhere else

      “After reading your review, I found it strange... Your broken English indicated that English is not your first language... I came to this sauna several times but never see the long wait as you are talking about. This place is new and can fill up hundreds of clients, I don't see why they don't want you to come in... There are many saunas in the US and Europe that also not welcome Asians there as well... It's just the owner preferences. Babylon is a nice looking sauna that is known for old white men and their admirers... The problem is that sauna is a complete bore with no sexy party and people just stand around.“

      • The awfulest place which I have ever been

        “Dear, Justin, you're very ingenious! Actually I'm not an english-native-speaker and I'm not an Asian. English is not my first language and I don't think that I have to know English perfectly, but I use 'my broken' English, because I'm not sure that my review written in Russian would be read and understood by others. I've just written my opinion after visiting there, I have proof to do it. Actually there were hundreds of clients who came in and came out, because there wasn't a free place and no opportunity to get a chance to come to sauna. Go somewhere else? Oh, it's really good advice! I have already visited SaunaMania and Underground sauna. These places were much more better! I could come inside and staff were much more helpful and attentive. If you like R3 Sauna and satisfied with this, I'm glad for you.“

    • Special party

      “Given that the review was written on Dec 28 indicates that you went around the or shortly after Christmas. I know that R3 had a special party on one of those days for which they actually did sell advance tickets, which normally they don;'t That explains why people got it and why there was a long line. On other days it is no problem at all to get in, I have been several times. However, it is true that for a westerner it is difficult to get some action there, as almost all guys there only like Asian. So while it is a good place with some interesting specials like the parties, for more action for the westerner it is better elsewhere.“

      • You are so unlucky!

        “Poor u, Yuri, I think you went there on 27.12. There was a special party in R3 Sauna on that day and everybody had to book a ticket in advance. Normally you don't need to book a ticket. Now R3 is the "hottest" and best sauna in Bangkok and also in whole Thailand. R3 celebrate their parties very well and lots of action. It is my 1st choice when I visit Bangkok. You should try to visit R3 another day.“

  28. Nice place but too new and many are not familiar with the place

    “The place is new and very chic. The layout is a bit strange with all those stairs. Once this place become more familiar with residents and tourists, it could easily be the best fun sauna of BKK in term of facility and hot nude parties. The only competition of this place in term of fun is Mania but the facilities seriously needs some upgrades.“

  29. Big Place

    “Takes alot of guys to fill this place. I found it odd having a bar outside the steam . I think the staff should be naked too on naked days. Only fair!! จะใช้เวลามากของผู้ชายที่จะเติมสถานที่แห่งนี้ ผมพบว่ามันแปลกที่มีบาร์ด้านนอกอบไอน้ำ ผมคิดว่าพนักงานควรจะเปลือยเกินไปในวันที่เปลือยเปล่า ยุติธรรมเท่านั้น“

  30. Clean place

    “Easy way to get there is behind Tesco -Lotus make left than another left and at intersection left. Walk a minute and R3 is on the right. Place very clean, I was there on naked day and all boys cover their jewels,very funny and no action, boring movie playing all over. Couple negative things employees siting in the dark and playing with phones. You don't know if they are taping or not Other thing : for clean place the towels are so stinky.I hope they don't use them all over without washing.“

  31. 교통좋고 산뜻한 사우나

    “제목대로 산뜻하고 모던한 사우나네요. 무엇보다 깨끗하고 친절한 스탭들이 좋은 점이고요, 지하철 팔람까오역에서 가까운것도 장점! 지하철 내려서 포츈호텔 앞을 쭈욱 지나서 사거리에서 우회전, 첫 골목에서 끝까지 쭈욱 5-10분 걸어가면 보여요. 체육관시설 좋구요, 안마의자, 조금 오래됐지만 다양한 이반잡지들도 편하게 볼 수 있어 좋았네요. 지하는 온탕있고 5층까지라 조금 오르내려야하네요. 24시간이고 입장료는 160밧, 요일별로 벗는 날, 훈도시날 등 있구요, 다른 곳보다 직원들이 순하고 잘 응대해줘서 참 좋았네요^^“

  33. R3 more

    “Found it confusing to find, but directions above are better than website. Very glam sauna but maybe a bit too cool. Plenty of fit guys but mostly walking and not much action. Maybe I am too old for them but the sleazier places are more for me. A good addition to the large BKK sauna scene.“

    • Shortcut

      “I think you can also cut through the Fortune shopping mall but the signage pointing to the back alley are all in Thai so it might not be useful to a foreigner.“

  34. feng shui expert needed

    “New place and very clean, but I saw cleaners and the mop have more action then the clientele. The gym is so well equipped that guys seem to forget what they were here for. The place needs more areas where guys can congregate or show off their wares. And don't play the same Lucas video over and over again please...“
