Hi, Does anyone know what the going rate typically is for a beach chair massage on Orient beach?

We were there for just a short bit yesterday, and I asked one of them, she told me $160 for an hour. That is more than I pay back home at the chiro office! Is that truly what they go for? Trying to plan a girls afternoon surprise for my mom and sister when they arrive, but that seems awfully high for a sandy massage on a beach chair!

And I am DEFINITELY not trying to get one for less than is reasonable, I know they need the tourists traffic, but this would be over $500 for one hour with tip for the 3 of us. Just curious if I am out of touch with current pricing.

You might contact Fabienne via her website here

I don't know if the prices there are still good or not, but it was $100 at Orient and $110 at YOUR location before.

Highly negotiable, especially now. The going rate in many places in the US with a trained and licensed massage therapist is $60-$80 per hour plus any gratuity. Take it from there.

Thanks Carol - this looks like she has an actual Massage business, those prices are very reasonable. The gals who quoted the $160 were simply walking up and down the beach with a bag with aloe vera and doing massages on people's chairs that they were renting. Definitely a different experience!

If I had to guess i would say about $40-$50, when we were at Mullet Beach there were about 10-15 ladies with their Aloe in hand walking up and down the beach all day long/ every day asking you if you wanted a massage .They were also offering demos. Same thing at Orient beach. I would try to negotiate what you feel is a good price for a beach chair massage not sure how much training those ladies have.

Most have little to no training.

I had a deep tissue massage at Divi's Indulgence by the Sea Day spa which included a nice robe and no sand and a comfy massage table and a fully trained massage therapist for $80.
$160 for an hour is ridiculous.
I just had a massage last night by a licensed massage therapist here in MA for $75!

For a great massage anywhere on the island, Brian Le Cointe. He owns "A Touch of Hands" massage and does massages most anywhere. He used to set up on Orient Beach near Pedro's. He and his team are great for many types of massages.

Good luck and enjoy!
