TonTon Massage at The Fort

After much recommendation from le boyfriend, we finally got to try TonTon Authentic Thai Massage together at The Fort. It's a very short walk from my office in BGC. Despite its high end location, the price is surprisingly affordable. The 1-hr whole body massage is at P350 and you could choose to have back or foot massage only for the same duration and price. That's usually the discounted price for those not-so-popular massage havens in online coupon sites already, and yet it's just TonTon's original rate.

(The entire area was so dark that it would make no sense to take photos from my phone) Just like in another Thai massage parlor in Makati called Nuat Thai (P250 per hour), the intro of the whole session was a couple of minutes spent in soaking feet in warm water. Sabi ni boyfriend it might contain something else aside from water since iba yung dulas na pakiramdam once dried na ang feet. Anyway, after that, the massage starts.

We waited for almost 30 minutes to be entertained since TonTon at that time was jam-packed according to the receptionist--pero waley namang ibang customer sa lobby/waiting area (?) O edi ayun. The massage started sa feet and it was bitin. Thing is, naisip ko when you're nabibitin it means it's masarap. You won't bother saying it's bitin kung di mo naman trip diba. So ayun, masarap yung massage sa paa.

Btw since it's a Thai massage, there is no oil applied. Purely pressure points ang drama nito. Hence, hindi kailangang mag-bold. lol. They will give you panjamas and a blouse to use for the whole duration of the massage. It's the same thing for Nuat Thai, which is beside Blue Water Spa (hopefully my next target). The whole experience was lovely, except for a few secs when "ate" was too hard on my butt. Tinamad na akong sabihan sya kasi feel na feel ko ang serene background music at aroma. The entire spa is also way better than the one in Nuat Thai, most likely because the Sapphire condo itself is very much new. Malinis pa in general, kumbaga. 

I am not sure with other TonTon branches since this is my first try with their service. Mga three weeks ago le boyfriend and I attempted to have a massage in TonTon Makati (kahilera ng Nuat Thai at Blue Water Spa) but it closed down that day itself na dumating kami sabi nung guard.

Bottom line: I am coming back, provided I am within the area of BGC. Otherwise, I'd still opt to check out other spas :) Para din may ma-blog akong iba. Haha. But what's cool about TonTon is that yung price nya is very cheap yet you are sure to receive quality service. There's too many spas joining voucher sites these days and some are nakakatakot i-try. Either too good to be  true yung price at magtataka ka na bakit parang giveaway yung presyo, or wala halos reviews online.


  1. Di natuwa mom ko sa Blue Water Spa. Mahal, maingay sa loob (parang salon -- nag-uusap yung customer and yung masseuse and may TV on full blast), and hindi relaxing experience, overall. After your foot massage, papatayuin ka pa to go to another room for your full body massage naman. Something like that. HAHA.

    And lol at this: "Btw since it's a Thai massage, there is no oil applied. Purely pressure points ang drama nito. Hence, hindi kailangang mag-bold. lol."
