After reading other reviews, I had an idea of what to expect. The other reviews sum the experience up well: the staff chatted quietly among themselves in Lao, the massage took place on a comfy mattress on the floor, the beds were separated by curtains and the lady did not wash my feet prior to starting - having already read...

This massage although very hard made me felt amazing afterwards. My masseur really worked my lower back and thighs and hit the spot. For only 5,000 kip this was well worth it!

A fantastic traditional sauna! Quite hot by sauna standards. About 5 minutes per session is the maximum time I would recommend. The herbal tea they serve is a delicious touch. Normally a 'delicious touch' isn't something you want when at a sauna, but it worked well here. Get there right at or it will be 16:00 or it will be... More

Good massage in a very reasonable price. I enjoyed Laos oil massage here. Bit like a Chinese massage however Chinese massage is without oil. It was very nice and relaxing however they can do better as the place don't have an ambience for the massage. Very bright light and the ladies talking to each other most of the time. If... More

The massage room I was in was communal, with sheets hanging between customers, and the petiole giving massages talked amongst themselves, and one persons phone rang and they answered it, but ITS A $5 MASSAGE. The technique seemed quite professional to me, and although I was lying on a cushion on the floor and there was no fave hole thingy,... More

Went back twice for the massage. It was really good. Read some reviews that the masseurs were not trained and the massage was not good at all. But I gotta prove it wrong 'cause when I went back for the 2nd time, it was a different masseur and both the massage techniques and sequence were similar. I strongly believed that... More

For having done 4 different places in Luang Prabang, Red Cross was my favorite for massage and I went there twice ! One of the cheapest in town and really good. Yes it's "local" but still it's comfortable for a massage. And the money helps the Red Cross! If you can, ask for Thom , amazing masseur.

It is pretty cheap. They have 4 treatments. All pretty basic. I did the foot massage which is 100,000 kip for one hour. The masseuses were just talking and laughing to each other the whole time and my muscles are more sore than before

Went there for a foot massage after a long day of walking around, get there and they don't speak English so they barely understand when we book a foot massage. Finally get it sorted and lay down for the massage (first laying down foot massage ever?). Proceed to get the most painful massage ever from someone who definitely doesn't understand... More

The Luang Prabang Sauna and Massage centre is based at the old Red Cross HQ in town, a 10-15min walk from town centre. Having spoken to a volunteer here, there are at least 2 good reasons why you should come: (1) It's really good value! Starting at 50,000 kip you get a 1h oil massage (2) Most of all, you... More
