Good Traditional Thai Massage

I already had low expectations of this place as I saw the two prior reviews before my visit. I thought I'd still have a try (for the view and also because I planned to visit the neighbor Villa for an afternoon drink) --- WRONG DECISION. OK. It is true that the first view of this place is beautiful. However, this... More

I had been their member for around three years, and I mostly attend their yoga sessions, use their pool as well as the bathroom. Firstly, I have to say their yoga teachers are all friendly and they will never force you for any action that you cannot complete, they will only encourage you and help you. For those who go...

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...

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.
