Hidden away in an alley in the center of Saigon is a very interesting, well decorated, and nice massage lounge. The exterior is designed in a Vietnamese/Polynesian Style with stone steps leading to the lobby. Inside the decor is relaxing with wooden furniture and a mild green coat of paint and white ceiling. The tea served here is just amazing!... More

These first experiences are important since it can either turn a person into a frequent spa goer or turn a person off of having another massage. So we're glad that we... More

I've tried several spas in Ho Chi Minh City and a few in Bangkok for massages and Glow definitely ranks as one of the best massages I've had among them all. I had a 90 minute Asian Energize massage and felt great afterwards. There's a form that asks about your massage preference so I think being able to express to... More

I made an appointment through email. I had read good things but I was very pleased when I got there. The staff were really nice. I had a great massage and pedicure. It was a little more expensive then other places but by no means expensive. It was definitely worth paying slightly more for a clean and professional place.

I made an appointment online for a pedicure and a 60 minutes massage. The answer was very quick and kind and I had an appointment the day after. The place is very well located (secluded from the street, which makes it very calm). I was welcomed with an iced tea and a fresh towel. There was no other client when... More

Lovely presentation and staff. A bit hidden away not helped by the poor mapping on the trip advisor iPhone app. Good value for money in that it is a little more pricy but a high quality experience.

We appreciate you taking the time to write a positive review of your experience at Glow. I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed your service.

There are so many cheap massage places in the city centre and I got offered a leaflet at nearly block. And I know they're cheap for a reason so I didn't bother with them. Glow is a moderate priced spa - not a $10 cheap massage and neither is it a $100 massage in a hotel. For $26 I thought... More

I arrived at Glow Spa and noticed that there were a number of people getting their hair done which I later learned was a hair spa treatment. So I wasn't sure if getting a massage was going to be the right choice. Well my concerns were washed away when I got the massage and the masseuse was working deep into... More

It's so nice to find a place in the middle of the city that feels like you're somewhere in a countryside. I had a lovely massage and a facial which were both completely relaxing. The place is small and felt I really got the personal attention unlike bigger places where you feel like you're in a massage factory. The bonus... More

I was hopeful when I stumbled across Glow Spa. It had a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence on the window - but I can't see one on the website?
