The absolute best, I would come here every week if I could. All therapists are very good. I generally request the same, but you won't be disappointed. Nice and soothing atmosphere. If you get the Traditional Thai expect stretching that might push your comfort level. If it gets too intense let them know. Couples massage is nice, and go for... More

I visited the Smile Wellness Spa for a free meditation session. The staff were warm and welcoming. The experience was wonderful. The space itself has a beautiful and calming energy. I've heard the massage treatments are wonderful at this location, and I've tried to book with no success, so I will need to book and schedule further in advance in... More

When a whale watching tour fell through, my travelling companion and I decided to book a spa day instead. What luck! Smile Thai was absolutely incredible! The ambiance is amazing; you are relaxed the moment you walk in the door, take off your shoes and take a deep breath of lemongrass serenity. The staff was incredibly polite, friendly and willing...

This place is AH-MAZING. It is hidden away in a low-key, unassuming building in a quiet street (well, quiet for a downtown street) in the heart of downtown Vancouver, but the moment you walk in it's like Narnia - you are immediately transported to Thailand. The smell, the ambiance, the service, the people, are superb. I have nothing bad to... More

I was leery at first because it does not have a store front on the street,but service was awesome! One of the best massages I've ever had! We were not planning on a massage but was sore from hiking. Definitely worth it.

We went here after our arrival from Colorado. They took us as walk ins. The massage was stated by my husband to be the best he ever had. We went back the last night in Vancouver as well. I am a massage junkie and would plan to visit again should I return to Vancouver.

Went for my first Thai massage as I am addicted to spas and I am hooked! This massage style beats any other I have had. Great stretching and very comfy surroundings! The prices can't be beat. Splurge for 90 min as you will want it!

Located in 853 Richards St near Chinatown this Thai wellness place is absolutely amazing! Tum provided the best deep tissue Thai massage I have ever had in my life. Working with computers I often have sore shoulders and upper back but after an hour in Tum's experienced hands it all melted away. Highly recommended!!!

This was my first Thai massage experience and it was amazing. Being stretched and massaged at the same time was amazing. I am sore but in a good way. It was yoga with massage. It was very calming and centering and it just made my body feel so good. Can not wait to go back. I highly recommend it.
