Absolutely fantastic thai oil massage. Cherie focused on my back and neck as requested and released tension where it mattered. My back and neck had been causing me problems for a while and her treatment was exceptional. I will return for further treatments and recommend Arokaya wholeheartedly. The Thai massage tea afterwards was very welcome and Keith on reception was very knowledgeable and hospitable. Thanks to all staff involved and especially Cherie for the wonderful massage.

I had a Thai yoga massage and it was a huge relief from lower back and shoulder stiffness. It made my weekend much more pleasant for not being in pain.

As soon as I entered the owner approached me and thanked me for arriving on time and offered me a lovely cup of Thai Massage tea while I waited, in this time he explained interesting facts about the Thai Massage and the philisophy behind. The massage was amazing, the massagist kept asking if the pressure was okay or I wanted more/less and she called me by my name which I think is a nice gesture as well. I feel renewed and my back pain is gone! I will definitevely come back and recomend to my friends. Thank you for the tip for my ancles!

Really friendly, welcoming place. Massage was excellent - exactly what my poor knotted back needed. Dark decor was a little unnerving at first but the rest of my experience was so good that it was ok.

Not the most relaxing environment when I first arrived. Massage therapist was very good but facial was not great and therapist kept leaving the room to get things (perhaps at least 4 or 5 times). She didn't ask any questions about my skin or what I was looking for and as I have quite sensitive skin I was a bit disappointed by this. Finished a good ten minutes before the two hours was up so didn't really feel like it was great value.

Very strong massage that's really effective for muscle tension if you can take it.

Excellent. I keep going back. I don't know what I'd do workout it. Really great for my reccuring back tension.

I had a Thai yoga massage at Arokaya four days ago and still feel much better for it. It's the perfect combination of massage, stretching and chiropractic treatment. Highly recommended for anyone with serious muscle stiffness.

One word - amazing!! Friendly and knowledgable staff. Welcomed and my needs discussed then member of staff reccomended for what I wanted! Had an hour long deep tissue from Cherie who was fantastic only issue was wishing I'd booked a longer treatment! Can not reccomended highly enough will defiantly go back.

Venue: Reception area was clean and tidy but did smell musky/ damp. The massage room wasn’t particular spacious, had enough space for a massage bed and just enough space for the masseuse to work.

Treatment: Booked in for a 1hr deep tissue massage. Before starting massage work, I highlighted to the masseuse that my shoulders and neck were areas I wished to focus more on.

The treatment received did not feel like a deep tissue massage (definitely different to ones you get from sports therapists), it felt more like a variation of a Thai massage less physical manipulations. Very little time was spent on my problem areas, until I reminded the masseuse where my problems lay by which point it was too late. The massage itself was pretty good, however sadly it wasn’t the treatment I came for.

The ambience of treatment rooms could be improved, I appreciate it is a Thai massage spa but the music being played during the treatment didn’t help with relaxing the mind.

Overall: I appreciate long term muscular problems will require further work and I was open minded on returning back for future treatments, however sadly due to my experience I will look elsewhere for treatment.

The atmosphere of Arokaya makes it feel like you've stepped into a little piece of Thailand in Chorlton.
We were greeted immediately upon entering and sat down on a sofa in the waiting area for no longer than 2 minutes before being taken into the treatment room.
I was in a room that catered for two people having treatments at the same time; which meant my friend and I were able to enjoy the experience together. We both agree that the massage itself was incredibly relaxing and the lady giving the treatment was very good at changing pressure upon request and managed to work out a particularly nasty knot on my upper back! The background music all added to the illusion of being back in Thailand. Afterwards we were given a refreshing glass of water!
The treatment was one of the most relaxing treatments I have had, rivalling the Thai massage I had when travelling in Thailand recently will definitely be returning and would highly recommend to others!
