I had a great massage there. nice foot bath, relaxing massage, great tea at the end. Unfortunately, my boyfriend had a worse experience than I did - his masseur was sick or something and kept coughing directly on him! Even directly on his face! It was pretty gross and not relaxing at all. The quality of his massage was a... More

THe facilities were very clean and comfortable, the therapists were so eager and helpful and VERY TALENTED. They tend to work deeply so you need to develop a form of communication.. mostly... More

This place is run very well and the therapists are well trained and professional. We went for a foot massage and the room we got had an excellent view of the sunset and the bay. I would give full marks for cleanliness, professionalism and skill. My only grouse was that Indonesian massage on the whole was painful and is not... More

We booked it by the Bintang Flores hotel which recommends it. It is great massage, professional techniques, very clean and nice place. The masseurs have disabilities and definitely the best massage abilities. We first tried Flores Spa which was a full disapointment.

Just been here couple days ago to release my neck and leg pain. The price is quite cheap, service is good, the place is clean, tidy and great aromathic smell. Although this is a disable community massage center they dont need any sympathy. They are really proffesional. And the most important thing is...they give a very good massage just like... More

I tried the 70 minutes full body message for 70K IDR. What I like from this place is 1. Emi (the employee) is as pro as any other employee in massage center I've ever met. She remembers all procedures, smiling all the time, friendly, and helpful 2. The massage really works to release my backpain after a week travelling 3.... More

**The Massage: - Cheap, around AUD$10 (100,000 RupiaH) for 70min session. - Hands down one of the best massages i've ever had. and i've had my fair share. To the point where you should come here just for the great massage, and helping a disabled community business is just a bonus. They don't need sympathy votes or your charity -... More

Like many people I enjoyed many massages while I was in Indonesia. I had two massages here and both were among the best I received during my vacation. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place was spotless with a great view. I really liked that this place extended the typical duration of a massage by enough time to do... More

Place is very basic (don't expect music, incense or candles), but the people are well prepared and very friendly. Definitely a must try when in Labuan Bajo.

I enjoyed a Balinese massage with acupressure while my girlfriend was enjoying a foot reflexology treatment. It was really relaxing, especially since we enjoyed a footbath ritual before the massage and a shower afterwards (a welcome plus on a hot and sweaty day, which we didn't experience elsewhere). The massaging style was rather firm in the beginning, but after flagging... More
