Unfriendly personnel
Feb 2017 • Solo
Advertised one price on street with friendly and aggressive sales person. After massage, charged 33% more than promised. Young manager got in my face and yelled at me. I paid extra fee because hassle was not worth it. She still pushed me out door, cursed and yelled "this is my country". Do not go here.

Clean, good massage, aggressive for tips
Jan 2017 • Couples
The massage was good, the place is clean.

Unfortunately our bodies were not cleaned properly after the massage was over so we are soaking in oil.

Also when we went down to make the payment and after paying the agreed price the lady was Super aggressive in demanding tips. We feel tips should be voluntarily, as it is a common practice in Asia (and at all the well established massage establishments). Even after we tipped the lady was still pushing for tips.

Try to avoid this spa and rather take a cab to temple leave spa or gallery spa. We can only recommend these two places.

Place looks nice in and out. Prices are very good comparing to others. We tried full body massage and foot massage and they were both good. Best smoothies in Bui Vien street also.

Hard message was just what we needed
Dec 2016 • Friends
Having done multiple sleepover buses in a week we needed the kinks smoothed out. And boy did they. Although we were given no option but to tip, I would have anyway. The staff are friendly and the facilities are clean and well maintained. The cafe across the road is a perfect post massage recovery place too.

100% start hard because you never know when you need it, and try understand English enough to tone it down

They ruined my nail
Nov 2016 • Friends
Do noy go to this place! I had my nails 'done' at this place. The lady who runs the shop pretends she doesn't speak english but really does. She does this so you dkn't feel like you can discuss prices when the bill comes. She gave me a manicure in 3minutes which hurt, she made my cuticles bleed, scratches back the top of my nails and did not file the nails evenly. She then started painting the wrong colour. I asked her to check and she was not happy. The painting was terrible. They were lumoy and all over the skin and missing parts of the nail. I asked another lady to remove it which she did by scrapping the shellac back and not letting it soak for long enough. I then left. They requested I pay money and I am not sure what for. I would not recommend this place. Avoid it!

Checked in around District 1? Try these!
Nov 2016
Tired feet and body at the end of Ho Chi Minh tour? Try this spa with a very nice ambiance, Aroma Viet. Located in District 1 close to Trung Nguyen Coffee shop. They have attractive packages; even a foot massage for 40mins for just 100,000 viet dong o 150,000 for full body massage. I liked their aromatic hard massage <3

False advertising
Oct 2016
Went there and asked for a manicure which was listed as 70k dong. After everything was done they wanted to charge us 140k as apparently colour costs more. We did not feel this was made clear to us as we asked for a manicure and they wanted us to pick a colour without alerting us that it would cost double.

The manicure was done in quite a rushed fashion, no proper hand bath before hand, therefore the outcome is quite rough. We also just had to sit on some wooden stools at the entrance of their shop and 3 women were working on one manicure at a time as they were trying to get to other customers.

Would not recommend.

Worst massage ever!
Oct 2016 • Couples
We have been to a lot massages in china, Thailand and Vietnam. This one was the worst. The facilities are quite nice but never the less we literally couldn't wait until it finally was over.

We had 40min food massage for each 100.000. No food bath or food wash, just directly added oil on the skin. Masseur didn't had any skill, was just randomly massaging different parts without any plan. Even massages left food different than right food. 60% he stroke my calf. Not much care for the food. I felt his finger nails while massaging, that was very uncomfortable.
I did not enjoy it because it was really not good at all.

After finishing, I had so oily feed I could not walk in my shoes. I took a towel and cleaned the mess by myself.

Then they gave us a massage evaluation paper to fill out. And you can choose between tipping 3-7USD. We didn't want to tip so we did not mark anything. After going downstairs to pay, they ask us again how much we want to tip. We felt offended by this pushy way.

Worst massage quality ever. No trained staff. To much pushing for tips.

Friendly and Value for Money

Walked by stopped in for a mani on my last night in HCMC and am so glad I did! The ladies here were friendly and served iced tea, perfect for the warm night.

Didn't get a massage, but def would have if I had discovered this place earlier.

It's in the busy backpacker's area but wasn't overpriced as I would have expected! Would recommend if you want to add some relaxation to your long night out along the street.
