Enjoy an excellent oil massage, or Thai style massage, in clean, fan cooled or air-conditioned rooms. And provide employment for blind Thais !
Advise the receptionist which type of massage you require, how long (1 to 2 hours) and whether you want a strong or gentle massage.
The costs are no more than you will pay for a massage on the sand at the beach.
And when you finish, they offer you a complimentary tea or coffee on the front porch.

The TBMI is in the middle of the Jontiem Complex. Ask your accommodation provider or locals, who should be able to give you directions.

The TBMI is located in the Jomtien Complex nearly next to the Ganymede Resort & Spa, and 5 minutes walk from Jomtien Beach. My first attempt to get a massage was not successful as it was booked out, so a booking is recommended. You can select who you want for the massage from a notice board full of photos, however I said I would have whoever was available. There is a price list which is cheaper than nearby massage places (i.e. under 200B per hour, or slightly more for oil). I chose to have an oil massage. My massuer was in a curtained off area waitng for me when I arrived. He gestured to a hook to hang my clothes. I was a bit surprised when he indicated that everything should come off, however as he was blind there didnt seem any reason for false modesty. The massage itself was superb. Not surprisingly he was most intuitive, and gave a strong, deep massage which I would rank as one of the best I have ever had. I could hear 2 Russian women next to me who were having a great time laughing and groaning (with pleasure). They had a masseuse. I think that this place serves 2 obvious purposes---it provides a facility for a fantastic massage, and also provides emplyment for the very skilled staff working there. I highly recommend having a massage at the TBMI. One curious thing---at the end of ther massage the massuer disappeared. I wanted to tip him and had to go and look for him. I eventually found him at an area at the back of the ground floor where the masseurs rest after a massage. I have been told by friends that they also had to search for their masseur. I look forward to going there next time I am in Pattaya/Jomtien.
