I am a local expat and I have a foot, shoulder and back massage twice a week. The staff are lovely and I get a local discount which is very appreciated. Thamkyou girls.

When I first moved to Siem Reap I went to various places and Pura Vida is by far the best place to have a great massage.

Tiana is a very professional and friendly manager. I see her almost weekly and she is very approachable to staff and customers.

The facial I just got with a friend of mine was so amazing. They took their time and were very gentle and now my skin is glowing. It was followed by a head and neck massage. Highly recommended!

We came here's after a long day of hiking at Angkor Wat with very sore feet. We both had a 30 min foot massage before dinner.

Mine was very weak and surface level. The one I had in Bangkok blew it out of the water. But the service was excellent and the spa clean and well kept. For the price I wasn't mad about it, but could have used a little more power on the massage.

went for a 90 min Khmer body massage. The masseuse was a small elderly lady. She was falling asleep while massaging to a point where she was just rubbing my skin instead of kneading or massaging. When I looked at her at one point her eyes were closed. Very unprofessional.

This was the worst massage I have had. We got there and it was quite busy with people getting pedicures and I feel like they just didn't want to lose a customer so I'm pretty sure they gave me the receptionist instead of a masseuse. He concentrated on only one side of my back (coincidentally, not the sore side), and would keep pausing seeming to think of what to do next. When he massaged my shoulders it was just like when your friends gave you a massage in school and then he would randomly keep massaging one arm?? I felt quite uncomfortable at times when he would push down and pause then tap/stroke my back, I kinda cringed away and he'd stop but it was really uncomfortable. He then asked me to lay my head in his lap (??) while he utterly failed in his attempt at a face massage. I'm not very good at confrontation and I didn't know how to leave without being rude so I had to wait it out. When he finally finished I went to pay, a flier I got the day before said it was $5 but the board inside said $7, so I paid two meals for an awkward hour and a much sorer neck than beforehand.

Worst massage experience ever.

We had a decent 30-min foot massage one evening, so we decided to try out a 1-hr khmer massage the next evening. Big mistake. My masseuse was extremely rude and unprofessional the entire time. When I asked for the clothes I needed to change into, she curtly pointed to a bag she had left on the floor and continued to fix/tease her hair in the mirror, rolling her eyes at me.

Now I can forgive poor manners if the massage is good (you're paying less than $10 for an hour-long massage afterall), but the massage itself was bloody awful as well. She applied almost no pressure (she was basically just tapping my shoulders), spent the entire time chatting up the other masseuse, and there were multiple times where she wanted to fix her hair, so ended up just massaging with one hand only. When I asked if she could apply a bit more pressure, she got angry and told me I didn't know what a khmer massage was, and then proceeded to nearly rip my skin off with needlessly painful pinching. I had to ask her to tone it down, but it was clear she had done it out of spite. I had bruises on my legs afterwards.

Also, since the window faces pub street and they make no effort to minimize the sounds from outside, all you can hear is the masseuses' loud chatting and the pounding music from the bars.

If you want to try this place, settle for a 30-min foot massage. Don't waste your money on any full body massage here - I ended up going to Body and Soul a few minutes away for another massage just so I could forget this awful experience.

I've been in Siem Reap for a few weeks now, and Pura Vida is hands down the best! I only come here for massages now! Friendly, clean, well trained staff, and they offer a variety of styles of massage! I've also got to talk with the manager Franchesco multiple times and he's extremely friendly and generous! I have went to the Pura Vida across from Lucky Mall multiple times - the ladies "Mom" and "Savom" are very good and well trained! Overall great place you won't be disappointed!

This is my first ever review but I felt compelled to write it after the terrible experience I had with Pura Vida.

It started out ok, my boyfriend had a thai massage which he said was ok and I had an oil massage which was fine but nothing special. The room was just a dark corridor with beds separated by curtains, not "spa like". But all of this would have been fine given the price if it wasn't for my pedicure...

After being prodded without much care and feeling nail varnish being applied and taken off 3 or 4 times the girl doing my nails asked another girl to do it. I then watched her pour nail varnish remover into the bottle of nail varnish!! Clearly there wasn't enough nail varnish but she applied it anyway. 5 minutes later she said I was finished and I looked down to see a complete mess.

I asked them politely to just take it off and she acknowledged that it wasn't very good. I would still have been satisfied with Pura Vida despite this if it wasn't for what happened next... I went up to pay and she asked for the full amount for the pedicure. I explained very politely I would not be paying for the pedicure. She then LIED to me by saying the pedicure was the same price without colour anyway which was not what she told me when I first arrived and enquired about prices. When I said this she laughed and said something in Cambodian to another staff member - she knew exactly what price she had given me. Then she said, "ok $3 for pedicure". I wasn't going to argue over such a small amount but I explained this was very bad service considering they had taken almost an hour to do a very bad pedicure and they knew it. Unsurprisingly she didn't respond to this and just took our money.

Very dishonest to lie about what prices she had given me at the start and terrible customer service to still charge when they know they were in the wrong and did a bad job. Avoid going to places like this that don't treat customers well when there are plenty of similar places in Siem Reap that will!

There are many pura vida in siem reap now, i went in front of future world in sivatha rd.
i went there a 3 times doing foot massage and swedish massage; the masseuse were very discreet, even with oil massage.
the price for swedish massage is a little bit high (20$ 90 min), compared to khmer or oil massage (6-9$ 60 min) , but definitely worth a treatment.
absolutely relaxing

Just had a khmer massage at pura vida. Its cheap about usd6 per hour. The branch near terrace Des elephant hotel is less crowded than the one at pub street. And slightly cheaper too. Totally recommended to soothe all the aches from temples hopping.
