  1. Awesome massage

    “Between my clients meeting, happened to be in the area, decided for a quick 45-mins massage. The receptionist recommended masseur Rain. My shoulder and back was in pain for a massage. Rain definitely knew how to control his strength and knew where to find the knots. After the massage, I felt relieved from all the pain on my shoulder and back. He was awesome and made me feel very comfortable during the entire session. Also he was very concentrated on the massage and was very professional. He's now my favourite masseur.“

  2. Unexpected powerful guy

    “This is my second visit and it’s been moved to a new venue. It’s big and different, compared with the previous place. There’s an extra shoe locker for my shoes, and what I see is... the frosted glasses rub back room and shower room! The design is much more modernised than before. Also the shower is awesome, too!

    This time I’ve been arranged a masseur named Joe. He looked bit shy with a cap and shorts, but he surprised me! He's really powerful throughout my 90mins session, defeating my tired parts accurately. Compared with my previous masseur, he did more stretching. He told me that I seemed to struggle with his force, but actually my eyes were already half off. lol

    Unfortunately the steam room is not open yet. The staff told me that it will be open in late July. I’m looking to visit the place again next time when I visit here :)“

  3. Beware of untrained masseurs

    “I have been coming back to Shanghai Onsen for the last few years whenever I visited Hong Kong. Sometimes the masseurs were not my type, but at least I could be assured of the professional quality of massages. Not this time.

    I was sent a small and effeminate guy called Thomas, who either knew next to nothing about massages or was too lazy to actually give a proper massage. When I kept pressing him to pay attention he just giggled like a little girl. He was so annoying and the experiences so upsetting that I have to file a complaint at the front desk.

    I am never going back to this place again.“

  4. Best Massage Experience

    “I came early last weekend before my flight back to Osaka, not expecting much more than a good rub. I was immediately impressed by my therapist John, who is muscled, manly and has a nice tattoo on his shoulder. He has great style too, combining deep tissue, acupressure and he was very attentive to my reactions and adjusted accordingly. At the end he delivered also far more than I could expect. I left happy and I hope to catch up with him next time.

    One complaint - the shower room was dirty and there was this old carpet smell that wasn't very pleasant.“

  5. Third time unlucky

    “Third visit. Went early to enjoy the facilities. The manager told me I can start early. Somehow this time felt a bit rushed. When he saw me after the sauna he asked me if I want to start soon despite another half hour to go...

    The quality of massage had dropped as well. After 10 mins, I requested a change of massuer. Looking for someone more experienced. The manager promised someone good. Then the second guy came in, through the conversation, today was his first day at work. The session ended at about 65 mins, poor massage. I wonder where are all the experienced masseurs who were very good. Left disappointed. Will avoid this place.“

  7. Great service as always

    “Went back to Shanghai Onsen for 90 mins Body Oil Massage. The massage was great as always. This time with Tenny. He is friendly and I was very satisfied with his service. He asked which are that you feel tired so that he can focus and make you rejuvenate. I almost felt sleep during massage. Thank you Tenny! Definitely will come back again!“

  8. Nice experienced!

    “I was there last week for a relaxing massage. The experience was amazing. There’s a big guy greeting me and show me the facilities and where to go, he spoke fluent English with a kind smile. Unfortunately he’s not a masseur... The place is big and clean, and the massages are really good too.

    I chose Andrew first as he’s always been well commented here. He’s a medium guy with beard, and some tattoos at his back. I really enjoy that level of power, not very strong one, but the power that let me feeling a real relaxing. I rarely felt asleep during massage, but that time I did. I wanna give him a 5 stars for his oil massage too, I really never tried such oil massage, a completely one! From my neck, my shoulders..... and my feet! That’s really an amazing one :)“

  9. Downhill since change of ownership

    “I have witnessed the fall of this place since its glorious days back in TST, Tin Hau, then to the current location. Now the quality of massage has become really inconsistent; bookings are constantly messed up (sometimes therapists sneakily cut sessions short to catch up), and the worst of all - the place has lost its unique "clean" and chill vibe - which also led to a deteriorating quality of clientele (if still any left). The new owner installed funky lighting in the steam and sauna. Why?! The place is quiet and the masseurs seem to be very unmotivated… Quite sad. Can't go back until I hear that it’s nice again…“

  11. Perfect end of my trip to Asia

    “Following the recommendations here, I decided to spoil myself after a long backpacking trip in Asia. I booked a long session plus a back scrub with John before my flight back home and have the most fantastic massaging experience ever. We just seemed to click.“

  13. Much better than expected

    “I just went recently again after not having been back since it moved to its current location. This time a masseur (his name is John) came recommended so I thought I would give it a try this trip back to Hong Kong.

    First - the new location is still nicely decorated and well managed. It has a large seating area where you can relax and have a drink, and a steam room and dry sauna. The private massage rooms also seem bigger.

    Second - as for the massage, my experiences were hit-and-miss before. But the thing to do as also is to ask and specify your requests when making a booking; don't just get one they randomly assign you.

    My guy is a beefy muscly bear, manly with tattoos and goatee, not at all what I expected they would have. John also speaks perfect English and the massage is one of the best I have ever had.“
