**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

Great idea, totally supported by me, about creating work for disabled people... Said this, everything else not really the best spa i had been to... Actually calling it a spa would be upgrading this place, which is actually a simple massage place with good view.... I read positives reviews here on trip advisor, but i disagree with those... I had... More

My wife and I had the full Balinese body massage (100 minutes) for IDR 100,000 each. Probably the best £10 I have ever spent in my life. A wonderful massage. The fact that all the therapists have visual or hearing impairment is a bonus and heartwarming in a country where those with physical disabilities find few employment opportunities. A place... More

The place looks ordinary from the street but once inside it is really lovely. My wife and I went and I had the Balinese full body massage (100 minutes) while she had combination massage and facial. Both of us felt wonderful after the treatment. The traditional foot scrub is part of the treatment, done while we enjoyed the views of... More

this place is very professional, it is very clean, the staff is very friendly and if you do reflexology you will not only enjoy the treatment but also a stunning view over the bay! I tried the Balinese acupressure massage (100min for 130.000) and soon became a huge fan of it. the treatment was professionally done and I instantly felt... More

My boyfriend and I visited YAM on the recommendation of our hotel (Bayview Gardens) and were not disappointed. The price and quality cannot be beat. The staff are very professional, welcoming and kind. First, you are treated to a traditional foot bath, which you get to enjoy while taking in a view of the Labuan Bajo harbour. Then you enjoy...

This massage center is a real gem in Flores. Fantastic massages by professionally trained staff (with sight or hearing impairments), with kind caring personalities. The masseurs have a lot of experience and you cannot help feeling unwound and relaxed afterwards - the 2 hour packages are amazing!! Plus, there are stunning views across Komodo National Park. And it is just... More
