original Laos sauna

The massages are so so, it seems they execute a set programme without much enthusiasm. But relaxing enough it is. The sauna is an experience. You get in and see nothing. Some... read more

The massages are so so, it seems they execute a set programme without much enthusiasm. But relaxing enough it is. The sauna is an experience. You get in and see nothing. Some sweaty hands lead you over a very very hot bench to the back, where you have to tuck under your feet carefully in order to keep them out... More

The place is simple but clean and the massages are very good! I got an aromatherapy massage and my husband got a foot massage, one hour each, for $16 total. After 4 pm it is possible to make a massage and take sauna after (we didnt try because we went in the morning).

Go elsewhere. My boyfriend and I came for foot massages and our masseuses were talking to each other for the full hour. My masseuse was also using one hand for her phone for the majority of the time.

Extremely basic and I wouldn't go if you're seeking a spa like atmosphere. One of the masseuses kept taking phone calls throughout my session. But the massages were great and so so cheap that I have absolutely no complaints. Great value!

it is so cheap, and you help this organisation with their fundings. it is a very good place to go for a massage, they are very serious, punctual, and non-expensive, what else can we ask for? it is a must if you are in the city. The same with the local street food stands (including lassi), it is amazing and... More

Went here after hearing that it was for Red Cross. Cheaper than average in town, and very relaxing massage! Too much oil used, so be sure to ask for less. They also should provide tea afterwards and a choice of gender for masseuse. Would recommend!

The traditional lao massage was fine but security is dubious. Usually I take my belongings important or meaningful items with me to sit next to me in the massage space. But on this occassion I was shown a locker system where they required you to place your items in a locker then locked it and gave you the keynwhich you... More

Cheap massage in town~ I trie the traditional Laos aroma oil full body massage there after 6hrs bicycle ride from the Kuang Si Waterfall, the therapist strength is great butI think skill is average, and not comfortable bed, not that clean and no herbal tea after my treatment at 4pm. What you paid is what you get :-)

Went here for a massage and we wanted to get the traditional lao massage for 50,000 kip but the girl points to the aroma oil massage which is 80,000 kip even if we say we only want to traditional so i guess they don't offer that anymore. Went here based on reviews from trip advisor but was a little disappointed... More

Nothing fancy or spa-ish here--just a fabulous massage at an incredible price. I had the best 1-hour foot massage I've ever had, for about $8 plus tip. First come, first serve, so you just show up when they open or when you can. There's a lovely wat across the street, which my husband visited while I was enjoying my hour... More
