Chinese businessman and managing director of Thai Spa and Massage, Rongneng Fan has stressed it is only offering traditional Thai massages.

The spa is situated at Port Denarau in Nadi.

“The services at my spa are all professional and we only provide massages,” Mr Fan said.

His interpreter, Saleshni Prasad, a receptionist at the spa said there is no truth in rumours of sex services.

“It is the people’s mindset that such spas have sex services but we do not,” Ms Prasad said.

“I have been working here since December last year and I have not seen or even heard of our clients asking for such services.

Ms Prasad also confirmed that apart from Asians, locals had also visited the spa to experience Thai massage.

Fiji Sun visited another spa situated at Denarau yesterday and found out that they had not noticed or heard anything suspicious and their business had not been affected.

 

Why Fiji and Nadi?

Mr Fan said he has visited Fiji previously and had not seen any Thai massage centres.

“There are Chinese and Korean massage centres but we are the only centre offering traditional Thai massage.

“Ancient massage or Thai massage is an extraordinary method of aligning the energies of the body, and originates from the time of the Buddha,” he said.

Mr Fan said local masseurs would not be well versed with Thai massage techniques.

“Thai massage is a great way to relieve stress, improve blood circulation and re-energise your body, relieving your stress.

“Fiji has a lot of potential as the tourism industry here continues to grow, opening doors for more investment opportunities.”

Mr Fan owns two other massage centres in China and says a lot of tourists have visited his spa back at home.

“Nadi is a famous tourist spot catering for thousands of tourists annually and that is why I chose Port Denarau as my location.

“For now there are two Thai masseurs and ten more are expected to fly in once their visa and work
permits are approved later this month.”

The spa has 11 self contained cubicles including a shower room.

Mr Fan said a total of $1.5million had been invested in the spa which opened in November.

Calls made to Director Immigration, Nemani Vuniwaqa remained unanswered when this edition went to press. Earlier, prominent local spa services operator and trainer Deborah Sadrana, when asked by the Fiji Sun, had queried why local masseurs were not employed.
