There are certain types of plaster that is made for damp/wet areas such as bathrooms etc. it is usually a blue colour but I assume that yours is now painted. If this has been used in your area it will be fine for damp areas.
I agree with foc1 wet area plasterboard used for thise soffits will be fine. Tile gaps are set by the thickness of the tile, consult your tile shop for more. The main problem is tile gaps that are too small. The trendy look of 1.5mm gaps gives the tiles no room for movement.
