I found this place on TripAdvisor and booked because it sounded unique, and it is - it's tucked away in a residential neighbourhood that seems a million miles from Dong Khoi (it's only about 15 mins by taxi though, less if you're game to ride a motorcycle taxi) and offers a 'hair spa' service consisting of a hair mask, scalp...

Yes, you will find cheaper spas and treatments in HCMC, but I'm not sure you will find the same quality. I had the "jet lag" treatment package, 2.75 hrs, and it was delightful. The staff is well trained and professional, the private room was very clean with a lovely relaxing atmosphere, and the receptionist was friendly and spoke English well.... More

One of my most concerns in Vietnamese spas is cleanliness. Fortunately, Spa Tropic did not fail my expectation. The spa was simple but clean and well- maintained. I was greeted by a cup of cool lemongrass tea which was good. The staff were well-trained and very professional. Their massage skills were excellent and thorough. I do not have enough of... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Spa Tropic. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your spa experience with us. And thank you for your suggestions. The reason we don't offer more intensive treatments such as microdermabrasion is frankly, there isn't much of a demand for it since our clientele are mainly tourists who mostly are... More

I visited HCMC in June of 2013 and found the Spa Tropic after reading about it on TA. I had the full body massage as well as a facial. Don't remember the package exactly. I believe the cost was approximately $90 usd and the whole thing took about 2 1/2 hours. If you've had either a massage or a facial... More

My best friend and I decided to treat ourselves to hair washing and a mani/pedi whilst in HCMC. Beware… the hair washing is so relaxing that it might put you to sleep.

A very simple, modern, and relaxing spa. Greeted wonderfully at the front (like everyone else), though we nearly didn't get it because we did not have a reservation. Note to others, make a reservation! My wife enjoyed the hot stone massage and I had a swedish, both for 90minutes. Very well done for the price compared to spas back home... More
