Very thorough massage, nice settings, good ethos
Dec 2019
Had a 90 minute massage, which was by far the best we've had in Indonesia (Bali & Lombok). The massage was thorough and strong enough, they made a very good job with the trigger points. The masseurs have each some kind of disability, so by choosing their place you are also helping out a bit.

Great massage
Nov 2019 • Couples
We took a full body massage at Ayo Mandiri of 60 minutes. We received a very warm welcome and had a great massage. The people that work there (either blind or deaf) are very skillful and friendly. By taking a massage at this place, you support locals with a handicap. I think this is an amazing initative and gives an extra glance to the experience.
Definitely recommend!

Good massage

Simply fantastic, almost everything about the massage and entire experience is perfect. While it is expensive if you compare it with Bali, its a normal price around Labuan Bajo

Good massage, but stay with that

Me and 2 friends booked (2 weeks ahead 3 hours each). When we arrived, there was quite a confusion (later also regarding the payment), assumably due to bad communication as owner/care taker wasn't on site.

Best full body massage i've ever had!

The staff were very well trained. Easily booked through WhatsApp. Excellent value for money! The ethos of the business is fantastic, giving those who wouldn't perhaps secure employment elsewhere, the opportunity to train and earn money professionally. Due to the therapists' language abilities, a lot of hand gestures were relied upon during our treatments, including sign language. It was a lovely experience.

Professional and thorough

Got a massage from Baltis (not 100% sure of his name) and it was absolutely amazing. He has very reduced sight and hearing but his hands definitely made up for it. I payed 180.000 IDR for 1,5 hours. It was mixed traditional and acupressure. Before you get a feet wash and after you can shower. Baltis was super professional and very firm. If you like a more strong massage that works through the whole body, this is definitely the place. Amazing idea behind it too that they train people with disabilities and all the staff were so sweet!

Best massage ive ever had in beautiful clean parlour
Jan 2018 • Solo
Staying nearby I dropped in for a 1 hr accupressure massage. Hands down best massage ever, ironed out all my knots and a sore neck cured. Came back the next day and had another massage with a different therapist again and it was excellent! Whats even more amazing is that both therapists were disabled. Please support this venture which trains up and employs the disadvantaged!
Air con in all rooms, free hot shower after and beautiful view over labuan bajo harbour for the manicure/ facial room.

What a great venture!
Sep 2017 • Solo
Love everything about what this place is. Training and providing jobs to Indonesians with disabilities - fantastic! I took part in the 4 hour mini workshop which started off with a massage. Another tripadvisor member suggested learning "softer/lighter" in Indonesian which is a good tip as the massage was too much for me. But if you like a strong massage it would be perfect for you.

Martin and fero(?) were amazing. All the therapists are lovely.

Please support this business!

Best Therapist!

Second time to try this place, the therapist is just real good. The way they massage seems always hit the right part and the pressure is strong! Really recommend. And the place is also really clean and quiet.

Lovely

I called in for a massage around 11:20; was not sure how busy they would be and could not reach them on the ph number listed in Lonely Planet. Turns out I was the only client at that time, and could have a 60 minute acupressure massage before they closed for lunch at 12:30 (reopening 3pm)

The masseuse was excellent, skilled and efficient and hitting all the right places on my travel worn body. I was asked before she started 'is hard ok?' I said yes. Actually this might have been a criterion for which masseuse I was assigned to.
Clean massage room; good tables; partitioned by curtains; good attention to modesty even from my blind masseuse, a foot scrub to start and a nice shower to finish.
What a fine experience!

A bonus is that this establishment is supporting people who would otherwise be unemployed to live self sufficient lives with dignity.

If I am ever back in Labuan Bajo, I'd consider doing the half day massage training that is on offer here.
