Unique and good fire massage in Guilin
Oct 2014
My hotel spa was fully booked so I asked my hotel concierge to recommend a good place for a spa. They recommended this place as one of the best in Guilin (which, if you google for Massage places in Guilin, you will realise that there is not much choice). Speaking Chinese is essential as none of the staff spoke English. With my pidgin Chinese, I managed to pick a 2 hour massage package and a 1 hour foot massage. I opted for the more expensive 2 hour package (2 hr for 268 RMB) instead of the slightly cheaper Tui Na package. It was an interesting option; not something I would pick again, but certainly worth a first try. The massage started fairly innocently with them putting a bag of warm stones on my back and rolling it up and down. It felt pretty good although i personally prefer more deep tissue massage digging into my tired muscles. Shortly after, my masseuse started putting towels on me, and then i felt him pour a liquid on me. I started to hear some flicking sounds, and then felt a warmth on my back. He kept asking me to tell him when it was too hot, and when i finally did, he did something to remove the heat. I was really curious and decided to see what they were doing to my mom, who was bed next to mine. Essentially, the masseuse put a lighter on the towel on my mom's back and then set it on fire! When my mom gave the signal, the masseuse would then put another towel over the flames and put it out. A bit scary to watch, but an interesting experience anyway! All in all, we had a good experience here and would come back. Prices are very attractive (they start at 88 RMB for an hour for basics). They also serve light refreshments, which are included in the cost. After the massage, you can walk along the river, which is very pleasant. Enjoy! P.S. This is not wheelchair accessible and you have to walk up a flight of stairs to access the main lobby

Just massage
Oct 2018 • Couples
The massage was ok. That’s all.
People talking (better to say barking) at the phone. Phones ringing constantly. Tv always on. Strong lights.
When i take a massage I need also to relax. This is no the right place.
