Sabaai Sabaai was closed about a month ago for their new renovation. Prior to the new renovated spa, I decided to revisit the massage parlour to relieve my aching shoulders, as well as to take a peek at their newly renovated place.
As i took my first step into Sabaai Sabaai, the place immediately stole my gaze with its improve makeover and a classier look than its previous setting and they have replaced the sofa set at the reception with 3 chairs specially for foot reflexology. Anyway, while I was taking off my shoes before entering the rooms, they actually gave me a foot bath. A free foot bath was only available if you made an appointment. They applied the foot with a mud-like paste and scrubbed your feet with a brush, which gave a ticklish sensation.
As compared to the previous setting, the mattress are now laid on the raised wooden platforms and white half-translucent curtains on all sides. Of course, they still provide clean clothes for change as I was going for an oil massage. I did not really enjoy the massage this time round as the masseur seems to be uncertain which part to really apply pressure on. Her strength varies on different parts of my body and though I have told her to focus more on my shoulders, there wasn’t more time spent massaging it. But as an overall, it is still a good experience and I will definitely be willing to revisit Sabaai Sabaai again.

It was too dark and with my iPhone camera, hence the bad shot.
This massage parlour employs native Thai-certified Massage Therapists who are suitably skilled in their massage techniques. It is an ideal place for those who work till late at night and looking for a good massage to relieve pains from sitting long hours in front of the computers as the parlour closes only at 3am. It would be wise to call for an appointment first before going down as they have a pretty heavy customer volume especially after midnight. Below are the rates for your reference.
After a long day at work, I decided to have dinner somewhere near Jalan Besar and it was when I stumbled at the brightly lit signboard of the spa parlour. The price for the services were rather reasonable. I tried the $38 for 45 mins Foot Reflexology and $65 for 60 mins Thai Oil Massage on this visit.
I started with the foot reflex first. Although the cars buzzing outside along the street caused some distraction, the alluring place more than compensated for by its very therapeutic foot reflex service provided by a native Thai therapist. I was impressed by the fact that she instinctively knew which part of my body to apply pressure on, as some therapists simply do not hit the right, sweet spot. She also asked if I wanted to increase the pressure, but I declined as I was cautious of a painful sole from my other foot massage experiences after the therapists applied too much pressure. I was almost dozing off when the therapist informed me that the 45 mins foot reflex was done. She wiped the oil off my feet with a cloth and applied some powder after that. Refreshing.
I moved to the oil massage thereafter. There was a considerable number of cubicles, perhaps 10-12 of them, out of which a few are for couples. The rooms were rather dimly lit, well-suited for a relaxing massage experience. Some of them have beds, while others have only mattresses on the floor. They also provided light clothing and disposable undergarments for the oil massage.
Quickly, I went into the stop to see if they are still open…
The minute the Thai therapist applied the first pressure onto my aching back, I knew immediately that my money was well-spent. Throughout the oil massage, she covered almost every point on my aching back as well as my tired legs. Though it was slightly painful, I still managed to fall asleep throughout the massage. I had my back and neck bone stretched as well. After almost 2 hours of massage, I felt a distinctively lighter body with lesser ache and walked out a happy man. The native Thai therapists waved to me with a big smile and welcomed me to return, which I definitely would.

I arrived at the parlour around eight, but there were few customers customers, which I attributed it probably to being dinner time. My friend and I asked for a massage and they had therapists available immediately. It is interesting to note that all their rooms have only individual beds, and males and females are segregated into different areas.
I had initially asked for an oil massage, however shortly into the massage I felt that the strength applied was not enough. After telling the therapist, she indicated that oil massage was not supposed to be forceful and if I wanted to, I can switched over to traditional thai massage instead.
I supposed she was putting all her strength onto me and at a point of time, she actually puts her whole weight onto me by standing on my back. She wasn’t getting the aching points right and all I was feeling throughout the massage session is being pressed randomly.
