My husband and I both enjoyed the Loas massage for an hour, at a cost of 50,000 kip. This really was one of the best massages that either of us had ever had. My husband had a male massuer whilst I had a female one. In terms of value for money I was very impressed and with the money going... More

Had a really great aromatherapy massage on opening day and just back from a heavenly foot massage. With a sensitive back I am really cautious about massages, but my aromatherapy massage was relaxing, delivered by someone who could feel the knots etc. Thanks r Lair.for Mr Lair. The space is now really clean, the herbal sauna smells incredible, toilet and... More

I went to the newly opened center today and the service was great, they speak really good english. Mr Peng who was my masseuse was excellent potentially one of the best foot massages I've had and I've had a few. A great initative supporting the local people, well worth the visit if in Luang Prabang and supporting the local people.

I can also say best in Laos, but I guess i didn't have enough to make that call. Either way, it was one of the best I've had in my 5 weeks trip in SE asia. Very professional, clean, strong, comfortable - all you can ask for in a massage. I didn't expect much of the decor, given the ridiculous... More

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
