Jonat Massage is one of the many massage parlors in Pattaya. Located in the busy Soi Bukhao area the place gets its fair share of customers. Even with so much competition it has become a popular venue for some Pattaya regulars who look to get the most bang out of their buck.
While Jonat Massage is not likely to appear in any guide books it is one of several places that helps give Pattaya its particular characteristics. Some may even say it helps give Pattaya its charm. These sorts of venues are looked over by a lot of people who just pass through Pattaya and focus on Walking Street. Others who spend more time in the city may even devote a majority of their leisure time to visiting such businesses.
Location and Layout
Jonat Massage is located directly across from the well known Triangle Bar and only a few steps from the previously reviewed Excite Club. Officially the street is called Soi Chaloem Phrakiat 23 but most people simply refer to it as “Soi Excyte.”
The place doesn’t really stand out even though the name “Jonat Massage” is displayed on the large glass window along with massage prices. In that area and Pattaya more generally things can all start to blend in with each other. Maybe it is “sign overload.” In any event most customers who enter Jonat Massage are probably drawn in by an invite from one of the women sitting outside.
Jonat Massage is a fairly small place though it is larger than it may appear at first glance. After passing through the tiny lobby customers duck their heads under some low ceiling supports before heading up a short flight of stairs.
At the top of the stairs there is a nice and clean shower and bathroom area off to the right. Straight ahead there is a small room that contains several mattresses separated only by curtains. The curtains offer some privacy but in the small quarters it is easy to hear other people in the room. Even whispers carry from one area to the other. Mattress spring activity is even louder.
Staff and Service
As the above would suggest there is more going on at Jonat Massage than body rubs. Sessions often start off with all parties involved being at least partially nude. More often than not there are not clothes worn at all. Handjobs and blowjobs are a standard service that seem to be provided almost automatically to all male customers who stop in for a session. Full service is often provided as well.
There are only a handful of women working at Jonat Massage. Besides an older thin lady who works the front desk there are usually two or three women working at all times of the day and night. They tend to be in their forties or possibly even older. That said none are overweight or extremely unattractive. That is not something that can be said of all similar venues in the city.
The middle-aged Beer is pretty well known in some quarters for her ability to perform deepthroat for significant amounts of time. Other women on staff like Pai aren’t particularly distinguished even if they do tend to put a lot of effort into their work. Despite the older ages of the women working at Jonut Massage the place receives a lot of repeat customers.
The high level of service and low prices are probably the biggest reasons for clients to visit Jonat Massage. There is no official price list. There are set prices for the massages themselves which range from 200 to 300 Baht ($6-9 USD). On top of that customers are expected to tip directly to their service providers. Most guys who receive only hand and mouth service typically pay 500 Baht ($15 USD) total after their massage. Those who opt for full service tend to pay closer to 1000 Baht directly to their masseuse.
Jonat is not an official adult entertainment venue. It is actually a massage parlor. That said few people are probably going there for a legitimate body rub. Due the location and a sort of general knowledge the place is more likely to be visited by guys looking for a happy ending.
Generally speaking guys who visit Jonat Massage will receive what they are looking for or perhaps even more. In exchange they’ll hand over an amount of money that is only a fraction of what they would pay at many other venues in the city.
