Inside Naree Massage:
Entering Naree you are given the effect of a spa-like-refuge with a mini-courtyard effect. Once inside there's a nice blast of chilly aircon to eliminate the heat from outside. Also in the doorway are several of the massage girls. You have to take off your footware there and then. A price card is thrust at you and you make your choice of massage.
The decor and effects here are fairly pleasing on the eye, teak flooring with blue-carpet on the stairs, I choose Thai massage for one hour. Up I go and am shown inside the room. It's huge with a full-size double bed with a towel for the donning.
The girl who shows me upstairs I assume to be the one for the massage, but when she departs again to let me get undressed and into the towel a different massage women shows up. Slightly older, a little hardened looking but fairly attractive. She doesn't waste any time and its straight down to business, albeit with a plastic carton of cool water for me to drink first. The bait-and-switch trick is alive and well here, but I didn't choose the first girl for her looks or beauty either so that in itself doesn't bother me.
The woman is reasonably skilled with massage and for the price I paid for the Thai massage I got my moneys worth, but only just. Maybe it's just me, but the fact that the place is on Soi Nana (being Soi 4) it seems very much mercenary in mindset. For some reason the massage girl is not what I'd call Wat Po trained, somewhere between the two, both oil and thai massage without the oil.
So for massage proficiency I cannot find her appealing or skillful. Run-of-the mill would best describe her moves, with a few personal touches.
Once the massage was over it was time to sample the bathroom with a shower. It's certainly big and with it being en-suite there's absolute privacy. Hot water of course and shower cream provided. As I shower I check outside a few times, my massage girl is waiting around and I don't want her rifling through my stuff (this is Nana zone folks). She didn't take anything but you can't be too careful these days...
