Aside from the awesome massages they give, I give 5 stars to the idea of giving these women skills that can empower them when they finally get out from the institution. If not for the signage and the prison guards in the area, I would think that I was in a posh spa in a 5-star hotel..... Naaaah, this place... More

The ChiangMai Women's Correctional Institute works on a first come, first served basis. I got here at about 10:00 a.m. and I was given a numbered ticket to come back for an appointment at 12 noon. You can choose a full-bodied Thai massage or a foot massage. I opted for the Thai massage and paid $200 baht for a one-hour... More

Highly recommend this massage service at Chiang Mai Women's Correctional Facility. Organized and professional. They were on time, gave us clean clothes to change into, our masseuses all spoke English too. Massage was very thorough and wonderful. Didn't bother us the fact that it was in a big room with all clients together. A dimly lit quiet space with nice... More

An unusual experience, highly recommend if you enjoy massages, not for a first-timer, though. You change into pajamas and lie on a low wooden bed in a room with many other people. We tried to ask for the separate room they had with two beds, but "private room" didn't translate for the receptionist. The massage itself was wonderful. Lots of... More

We had heard good things about the massages here and took someone's advice to come early. We arrived at opening time and booked a full body massage each. As we were so early, we pretty much had the place to ourselves for the first half. However, by the time we left it was booked out! So we highly recommend getting... More

Plan your day if you want to include a Thai massage from here. They do have satellite locations but they are not run by correctional staff. Clean and quiet and possibly the best back stretch I have ever had.

As part of our tour, our guide took us to have kao soi for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was a rehabilitation center for women. The food and service were excellent and we were happy to be part of a program that gives life skills to women who need a second chance. I'm sorry I didn't know... More

My husband and I got foot massages here recently. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend it. The two ladies working on us were very friendly and told us to tell them if they applied too much pressure, which they didn't. We read that you should get there early as they don't take advance bookings. So we arrived... More

Very lovely! Really not much more to say. Had a nice, relaxing foot massage today and am definitely going there again soon.

The Correctional Institution is generally not on my list of places to avoid when visiting Thailand, but this is very, very different. Set as part of a small courtyard - no barbed wire or guard towers, don't worry - this is an amazing rehabilitation centre. For the prisoners and for your weary limbs. I must admit to wandering in out... More
