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.

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
