There is a wat located behind some gates but there is also a herbal sauna and massages on offer in the grounds.
We are dropped off at the gates and after wandering around two gentleman offer to take us to the open house set up on stilts with leafy surroundings that provides the services we are after.
We take the option of both sauna and massage for a total cost of approx 6AUD each.
The sauna does the trick and is as good as others I have tried. The communal massage area is open plan and has six beds.
What follows is a 'Lao' massage consisting of the masseuse working along each muscle band and working on pressure points along the band..legs,arms,back etc etc. Even though it's communal there no problems going naked as you will be covered by two sarongs the entire time, the masseuse does not use any massage oil either.
The ambience can leave a lot to be desired, being that they are local kids and there's a few around when you are getting a massage so it was a little noisy at times but didn't seem to draw from the whole experience other than you are less inclined to scream when they hit certain pressure points. The massage was pretty good and there's no need to worry about mosquitoes either.
