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? The place itself is very serene, tranquil, pretty and clean. I requested a 90 minute massage and prefer my massages to be very strong. It was approx US $40 I think…It... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Glow. I'm disappointed to read that you were not completely satisfied with your massage. I take these comments seriously as we take pride in providing quality massages and if it's any less than our standards than it's unacceptable. I will personally review this with the therapists who conducted the massage by re-testing... More

This is my second visit to Glow Spa for a foot massage. I was here a couple of years ago and enjoyed the service. I looked for other cheaper alternatives in HCMC, but was disappointed with the skill of the therapists. Glow is well worth the $18 (390,000 VND) 60 minute foot massage. It starts with a nice scalp, shoulder... More

Nearish to the opera house and down a little alley this hair and massage spa looked clean and green (lots of plants around). The massage ladies ask you to fill in a survey detailing what parts of your body to focus on and the amount of pressure, gentle, medium, hard. The chairs are comfortable and the head massage that came... More

My cousin and I had just spent a wonderful 10 days at a yoga retreat in Nha Trang at the Amiana Resort. We had several days back in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) before returning to the U.S. The Glow Spa is located in a wonderful alley that one would not think of when looking for a spa. The entrance...

Had a pedicure and a massage, both were wonderful. I had pedicure at another Spa and the polish fell off the next day.At this Spa they use OPI products which last a long time.

Found this little spa while walking on Nguyen Hue street. We were hesitant at first to walk down the alley but wow, what a surprise when all of a sudden there's a garden with stone steps leading up to the spa.

The setting this spa is in really is impressive, it was calm and relaxing just off a busy street. The price was $28 for a 1 hour Swedish massage which I thought was fine. Much more expensive than places with less ambience charge, but I was happy to pay this much. I filled out the form that I was given,... More
