There are so many massage parlors in Bangkok that a man aiming to visit them all would almost have to make a career out of it to be successful. When I review a massage shop in Bangkok it means nothing more than I visited the place. When I give it a high score however, that means that the place really stands out. Such is the case with Cherry Massage on Sukhumvit Soi 24/1 in Bangkok.
Cherry Massage is incredibly easy to find. A simple walk down the soi brings you right to it. It’s near the end of the short street on the right hand side. Sure getting there requires walking past countless other massage parlors on the same street, but those able to avoid the temptations of the other shops on Soi 24/1 will be glad they did.
Cherry Massage doesn’t have the largest staff, but it does have a very good one. Not only are all the women in the shop attractive, most of them go above and beyond the standard of service you may expect elsewhere. Those visitors who would like to know which gals do and do not do whatever it is they’re after will be happy to know that Cherry lists the services of each member of the staff right in the book next to their photos. Along with the standard mouth and full service, quite a few offer A+ Greek action and all over tongue massages as a part of their regular repertoire. The book also lists the language skills of the women on staff for those who like to have a bit of a chat with their rub down.
What’s more, the number of pops customers receive at Cherry’s is totally up to them and their capabilities. That means if a customer books an hour, they get the full hour. If they can pop two or three times during that period, they’re more than welcome to do so. This is not an occasional thing that occurs with certain women on staff but a stated policy of the shop. Many readers have written to express their concern over popping early and thus coming up short. At many massage parlors this can indeed be an issue. At Cherry, it isn’t.
Another great feature about Cherry Massage is that they are honest enough to include real photographs of the women on staff at their website alongside the more standard photoshopped fare. This is very refreshing, and it allows clients to get a real idea of who they will meet when they arrive.
With this level of service, one may expect the rates at Cherry Massage to be higher than other shops in the area. In reality, it’s quite the opposite. The prices at Cherry are actually lower than some other places around town. A one hour Thai or Oil Massage runs only 400 Baht ($12 USD). Lotion massages, longer massages and things like the addition of another lady are a little more. The increasingly popular nuru massage option is also available. Of course the standard addition of 1500 Baht for each service provider also applies to all options.
Those unwilling or unable to make the trip to Soi 24/1 on foot, by taxi or on the BTS skytrain (which stops nearby at Phrom Phong) will be happy to note that Cherry Massage also offers outcall. The rate for a two hour session is 2500 Baht, all inclusive, which is quite reasonable.
While I can certainly understand the appeal of that option for some, I also understand showing up in person. After perusing the photobook and asking for a line up of the available staff, one can then take advantage of the rooms on the premises, which allow for a much needed cool down with new air conditioners, followed by a much desired heat up with mood lighting and mirrored walls (I am a sucker for the latter and always have been since the first time I watched myself go at it on a ceiling mirror many moons ago).
Combined with a very skilled staff with universal charms and warm personalities, this all adds up to something very special right in the heart of Bangkok.
When I visited Cherry Massage I met the shop’s proprietor Nadear in the lobby. I’m sure a few readers may already know her but this was my first encounter with this young lady. She incredibly kind and eager to please her customers. As a former masseuse herself, she knows what it takes.
This kind of customer service is meaningful in the sensual massage industry especially, and at Cherry, it extends to every part of the operations. It really makes the place stand out in the crowd. For that reason and everything else mentioned above, I give Cherry Massage a very solid four and a half stars.
