I travel to Ho Chi Minh a couple of times a year on business and try and whenever I stay over on a Sunday and have a day off, I visit this place. Excellent services and a great price. Very relaxing!

I had been exploring eateries in the area near the Jade Pagoda and accidentally discovered Spa Tropic since it was on the same street as Cuc Gach Cafe. The spa is inside a French colonial villa and has a nice manicured garden in front. Since it was raining, I decided to take a 90 minute warm stone massage. First of... More

I had already gone for 2 spa treatments in Ho Chi Minh (both ranked higher than this spa) during my trip - both were cheap but were not great. Since it was too hot to be out and about, I scrolled down the list and came across Spa Tropic. I decided to give it a try and was so glad... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Spa Tropic. I'm very pleased to know that you enjoyed your spa experience with us. You've correctly summarized that Spa Tropic is about the 'total experience' and not a cheap rub down. We are aware that there are many cheap massage parlours in the city and we do not seek to compare... More

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.

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
