7 Out of 10 eben i thought in the beginning it's going to be soft but I felt every push right on spot . Not the best I ever had but a decent choice that said good to know that I go at least once a week so I guess I can judge.

A simple wooden and impeccably clean building. I'm male and had a male masseur. The foot massage (which was really a foot and lower leg massage with added short neck and shoulder massage) was terrific. An hour of complete relaxation for next to nothing if you are a tourist. My female companion also had a male masseur, and reports that... More

A great massage, which felt both therapeutic and relaxing. And fantastic value at 50,000 kip for an hour. Recommend all those travelers with tired feet to go there and treat themselves while supporting a good cause.

There are a few fancy spas in Luang Prabang and I don't doubt that the extra money they charge is money well spent if you like to have a massage in a lovely, charming, western style spa. I personally opted for a cheaper option and did not leave disappointed. The massage rooms are decent, clean and simple and my massage... More

After reading some reviews I decided to have a massage at the Red Cross. It was not a cozy massage room to relax. They didn't wash my dirty feet. The masseuse was talking with the masseuse next to me and was sometimes distracted. She even took a phone call massaging me inattentive with one hand. The massage was mostly sloppy... More

Having read the reviews I decided to give it a go. I went for the Aromatherapy massage. The girl on reception didn't greet me or look up from her mobile as she took my money. I had a male masseur, who weezed his way through the whole hour and rubbed, as opposed to massage, my body with cheap oil. Children... More

After reading reviews on here we decided to try out the massage centre and it was fantastic! We each had an hour long massage for 50,000KIP each. It's not the fanciest place, just curtain sheets separating you from others but they are very skilled in what they do. It was just what we needed after a long bus ride from... More

I had a male masseuse, which I didn't mind at first. The massage was going fine until just over half way through the hour long body massage. He was massaging my right inner thigh when he looked at me said "is this okay?" And proceeded to lightly press his hand onto my vagina, I said No. He didn't try anything... More

After reading about this place on TA we decided to give it a try as we wanted a traditional massage. We went for the foot and leg massage at 50,000 kip, which is about 4 pound. 1 hour of relaxation and after all the walking around LPB it was money well spent. Give your self a treat and try this.

Safe, friendly, accessible, well-trained staff, lots of choice of treatments including sauna - you will leave feeling like you are a million dollars.
