My husband normally has Thai massages and loves them, this was his first Laos massage and he thought it was great, very different to a Thai one and first time he's had a massage by a guy but overall he loved it and would definitely go again.

Well, be aware - this will be a real experience, especially the steambath. Go there with a minimum. There is a (rather spartian...) shower facility there but you should bring your own towel, soap shampoo if you want to get rid of the massage oil. We had a very good massage here for a ridiculous price. This said, you can... More

We are a couple and both had a massage, 50,000 kip for an hour. We thought the red cross was a good cause, it was quite cheap and how bad could it be. What a mistake. We both had male masseuses which I usually refuse but as there was no choice I decided to give it a try. My masseuse... More

Very basic steam rated excellent because the women were nearly all local who were happy to chat when drinking tea between steams, as a tourist opportunities to talk to the local women is limited. So go and enjoy the experience.

As I walked thru the night market street, I found there are many massage parlors that also cost about the same price that with better surrounding inside the room. Since it is for a good cause (the money goes to aids those in need), i can live with that. I just thought it is cold to have only my boxer... More

The welcome is clearly not the strong point of the staff but it worth the wait. I got a male masseur and he asked whether I liked it strong or light. I said strong. He clearly made a hell of a job there. After this, no more back stiffness and a feeling of deep relief. The price is the cheapest... More

It's very basic, but the massage (I had foot, my wife had Laos) was perfectly in line for 40,000 each. That's just over $5 for an hour. You won't write home about the massage, but you certainly won't regret it.

I guess it's a bit like anywhere, it may depend on who you get on whatever day you're there, but it appears the massage here is generally and consistently good. The sauna is hellishly hot, which is strangely great in this pretty hot place. The cost is about average for the town, but you get a real hour's massage, and... More

I had a great massage at this place. It is not a day spa place and is very basic so I would not recommend it if that is what you are looking for but if you just want a good massage it is great.

The sauna is no big deal, the facilities very downbeat. It's a very small potatoes travel adventure at a very small potatoes price. Locals tell me they sell the blood internationally. If you don't give blood at home, ask yourself why you're suddenly swept up to do so there (it's perfectly safe to do so). 'Better to give a donation... More
