The only special thing here is the interior design, No smile, no greeting, no explanation at the reception. The masseur was terrible too. The way he was giving massage was really bad.He was really in hurry and no motivation at all.When I asked him to give me stronger pressure, he looked grumpy. He tried to do it stronger for only...

Yesterday we went to Spa Authentic for a traditional Thai Massage for 2 (75 minutes). It was a good massage. Not the best we ever had, but a good one. We paid 970.000 dong for each massage and we thought it was worth it.

The spa has a beautiful complex. We typically come to Vietnam and stay at more modest accommodations and then come here for the day if we want to relax before catching a late flight. My fiancé usually has work to do, so he just gets the fitness pass to work out at the gym and relaxes by the pool for... More

My partner and I spent a glorious day at the spa. We had body and foot massages, facials, scrubs, and steam baths. Service was excellent. We lunched in the restaurant overlooking the river, portions were enormous. Looking forward to going back again, and again.

Fantastic massage experience. Highly professonal staff, superb facilities. The whole place oozes class. I had the aromatherapy massage, one hour and was completely satisfied. I tried quite a few other places suggested here in tripadvisor (some that turned out to be atrocious) but nothing came close to the high standards here.

This was a wonderful experience. A gorgeous location on the river, very tropical decor and beautiful surroundings. I highly recommend the facial and body massage package. It was a really lovely experience and I found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. This is well worth a visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

I came to My Spa for a day of relaxation with a friend of mine. The space is beautiful - relaxing, good mix of modern and traditional Vietnamese. The facilities are clean and the amenities are thoughtful. That day we had facials, mud wraps and Scandinavian neck/back massage. The facial was ok (although not sure when a facial consisted of...

The Spa is part of the resort hotel next door. We are amazed by the beautiful environment. We had 10 min sauna and shower followed by 1 hr swedish massage (~ US$40), 1 hr aromatherapy massage(~US$40) and 1 hr foot massage (~US$20 ). We love the body massage! The therapists massaged our body with good pressure. Would suggest their foot... More

I liked the whole outlook of the place (they have an infinity pool which I would have definitely paid to use if I was there earlier) and the masseurs were professional. I did a hot stone massage while my mum a chocolate wrap, yums! We came out feeling rejuvenated. Recommended!

This place looks very sophisticated but does not follow through - my wife and I had a couples massage which we often do while traveling. Instead of a serene experience it was very mechanical. At no point did they ask for preferences. They handed us tea and quickly took it back (even though we were early for our massage).. Same... More
