We've been to this sauna and had a great time. The sauna is recently renovated as we understood from a local. Fresh paint and new tiles. The herbal steam sauna is hot. They serve herbal tea when cooling down and that for only 10000 KIP. Very recommended. We didn't try the message.

Great to use a place that is genuinely sending profits back to the community. My wife is a bit of a massage connoisseur and she is still talking about how great her massage experience was here. It is a little way out of the main old town tourist area but a walkable distance and well worth making the effort.

Luang Prabang is a disappointment as far as massages go; inattentive, poorly trained teenagers in most places, and not worth the money or effort. The Red Cross was the best of the bunch tho. Pretty decent version of a Lao Massage (which is like a Thai massage minus the skill), followed by a very hot, steam herbal sauna, which at... More

Young girl simply rubbed for 1 hour. Little massage involved as well as using her mobile phone throughout massage. I did not pay full price due to poor service.

We both had a wonderful massage here and it was clean and comfortable. They also have a steam room which was the perfect choice on a cold evening. We will definitely go back there for more!

Donated blood at the Red Cross on the bottom level. Fill out a little form with your info, new equipment and sterile technique used during blood draw process. You get a little snack and free shirt for donating at the end 😊 Give blood, save lives.

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.
