Sf SPA sweet memories for 2 package
Dec 2019 • Couples
My partner and I got the sweet memories for 2 package which included a 20 min steam room,75 mins massage, 15 mins body scrub(exfoliate) 20 mins facial and to end it with a warm soak in a petal milky filled bathtub and some chicken pho at the end of the treatment which was a nice touch seeing the package goes on for at least 3 hours in total.
Service was professional and traditional which was nice,the 2 masseus’s we had were great (We forgot to get their names)and the package as a whole is reccomend to anyone wanting a cheaper yet just as good as what u would get in a 5 star hotel.and to finish it off with the chicken pho and fresh orange juice was 😍.the massage itself was very relaxing and they know what they are doing 100% as a person who is always trying treatments/massages in australia I rate this place as far as massages go.the facial was on point as was the body scrub and to top if off at the. End the warm milky bath with the rose petals was excellent.we enjoyed the sf spa experience and A tip if you decide to do the package,go and grab a lot of water after treatment because you definitely will be dehydrated!
Thank you sf spa

Not worth it
Nov 2019 • Couples
Let me start by saying I have been to hundreds of spas and had hundreds of massages and facials in my day, from chicago to Thailand and everywhere in between. I also don’t expect the ritz Carlton when I pay a lot less. I am reasonable.

We did a couples package which included Private room, one hour massage, 30 min facial, and 30 min body scrub, and a 15 soak in a milky bath with rose petals. The price was $150 ($75 per person). the jacuzzi was not working so they gave us 15 extra minutes for the massage which we appreciated. They included a meal (beef pho) because our package lasted so long. This made us think food would be served in the middle of our visit but it was saved until the end (9:30 pm) and then because it was so late they seemed to want us to eat it in 5 minutes so we would leave quickly. That being said the pho was excellent / delicious. We were very uncomfortable eating it since we had to sit on the floor and the table was so low. Traditional style maybe but totally uncomfortable for us.

The scrub was freezing cold and we were shivering the entire time. Definitely not comfortable. I mentioned that on my way out and they just said the scrub isn’t good to be heated up. It did leave my skin very soft I just didn’t enjoy the process.

There is no real sense of privacy; rather awkward in the beginning when they told us to take off all clothes but did not leave the room. I did not like being asked to undress in front of them and lie naked on the table with no cover. I had to ask for a sheet to provide some semblance of privacy.

The facial consisted of steam which I could not breathe because it was too close to my face. Then a vacuum type machine was used, which I didn’t expect, but thought was a good added value. It’s not really microdermabrasion but I can’t remember for sure the name. I had it done before in the Philippines. The facial massage was good except that both ladies kept going over our noses which obviously made it hard to breathe. She also put pressure on my eye balls which was also uncomfortable.

Lastly what was super uncomfortable was that we were given disposable underwear for use in the scrub. Neither fit which made us uncomfortable. My husband is a size 34” waist 5’11” football player body type, and I am Medium / size 8 US. Apparently if you’re not small they don’t have size for you. Then for the bath we were asked to wear brown shorts and top which also did not fit. Not fun. In the end I didn’t feel relaxed whatsoever because the entire process was stressful. From shivering cold to ill fitting mandatory clothing to finally being rushed to eat a hot meal in 5 minutes. I do not recommend this spa if you’re looking for relaxation. But if you want strong hands and soft skin I would say they are affective at providing that. The massage therapists while tiny 90 pound women were really strong and tried to make sure the pressure was just right for us. I give them credit for being good at that!!

We had a massage here 5 years ago so decided to return. The two of us had a one hour traditional Vietnamese massage and the staff were very professional and asked if we wanted them to concentrate on any particular area. They asked what sort of pressure we would like applied. The price was VND500000 for one hour which we thought was reasonable. Recommend this place.

Good massage
Sep 2019 • Solo
I went to SF Spa two times in four days as recommended by my hotel. The place is very clean and very luxury, all the rooms are clean and cool. The Vietnamese Massage was good. I took it two times with different workers and the second time was different of the first. It was good but not that much than the first time. It made me think that if you choose any massage it’s gonna be the same as it’s more depending who give you the massage. They give you welcome drink and it’s possible to take a shower after if you ask for. They also give kind of survey before the massage to ask you if you have particular demand and after for feedback. Speak english.

Luxurious spa experience at a good price
Dec 2018 • Couples
From the outside of SF spa, you would never know that the inside is so luxurious. This spa was clean spacious, and beautiful, with a very relaxing atmosphere. My boyfriend and I booked 75 minute massages, which started with a lovely warm foot bath and tea. The massage itself was incredibly relaxing. The staff speak enough English to understand what you ask for, and they are consistently checking in to make sure that the massage is to your liking. The massage isn't in a private room (single-gendered rooms with beds separated by curtains), but that didn't bother me at all. It might be something to consider if you are shy. Overall, the experience was on par with a luxury spa for a very reasonable price.
