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

I went at 5pm to be told all slots were filled. I was still able to use the steam room. I was given a pair of shorts to wear and a tiny towel. There are three changing cubicles. You place your possessions in a locker and retain the key. There are two showers come loos, with hot water. The two... More

I sometimes wonder what people expect when they travel to Asia and to some of the less developed parts like laos and luang prabang. The massage was fine, the service was competent, the place was clean, and the cost was pretty cheap. Nothing to complain about.

This place is great and it's for a Good cause! Double win!!! We paid 15,000 each to enjoy bottomless coups of herbal tea and soak in the dark steam saunas. Massages are also available for an additional fee. It's great way to get off the beaten path and blend in with the locals. Highly recommend this after a day of... More

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
