I went there after a day trek to 100 waterfall. Strong hands and really nice atmosphere in the room. I could have stayed there for hours. There were other traveller's also behind the curtain to take head and foot massage.

This is a sauna not a bath as stated up sabai sabai, so if you are expecting something similar to Sapa, Vietnam so may be disappointed. The room gets really hot but we kept popping in and out every ten minutes or so and drinking tea in between. We used it as preparation before our night bus to help us... More

I got a full body oil massage here this afternoon and it was wonderful! I still feel so relaxed! It cost 70,000 kip which was more expensive than the guide books said but it was still worth it! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that in the garden there were kids toys all around and dogs lying about,... More

Went for a foot massage after climbing up to the viewpoint - had one foot massages for 45 minutes and the other for 15. Not the best I've had. Sit outside on the verandah so it got very hot and uncomfortable

We found out about Sabai Sabai from Nong Khiaw Adventure's guide, Kent. He was our tracking guide to tad mok waterfall and also the owner of Sabai Sabai Massage & Restaurant. He invited us to have our dinner at his restaurant after the trek. December is winter time in Northern Laos, and Kent suggested that we should try Laos BBQ.... More

The quality of the massage and value for money was excellent. The steam bath was also the best one I've ever had - strong aromatherapy oils and lovely herbal tea afterwards. The steam bath is only open if there are enough advance bookings. Be patient, Sabai Sabai is run by a quite an old local Laotian couple - when their... More

I visited Sabai Sabai one morning to get a massage. I didn't know they also served food since I was never given a food menu. I would go here for a simple massage such as foot or back and shoulders. I wouldn't try anything fancy since the therapists are not well trained. But, it is fine to work out some... More

We visited Sabai Sabai for breakfast. We ordered two fruit shakes, one pumpkin soup and vegetable fried noodles. The service was incredibly slow, even by Laos standards. We had to go in search of someone in the end to order our food. The fruit shakes took 40 minutes to arrive and the food about an hour. The pumpkin soup arrived... More

The newly opend building has the best atmosphere in town with warm light, some tables to sit on the floor and decent music. It is a great place to spend a relaxing evening and enjoy one of the many drinks they offer.

A steam bath in the middle of Lao mountains is an excellent idea as it can get quite cold in the evenings. The massage is just okay, so choose at your discretion. Perhaps it's more enjoyable in the warm season, but then you won't really need the sauna. When you visit, make sure the owner, or the boss, is there.... More

Face au temple du village de Nong Khiaw, un joli restaurant construit tout en matériau naturel qui ne manque vraiment pas de charme surtout le soir avec ses lumières tamisées. Installés sur des coussins autours d'une table basse, ou plus occidental, table haute, nous testerons la cuisine traditionnelle Laotienne comme par exemple le bambou farci au porc, qui laisse un souvenir impérissable, le lapp au poulet envoûtant de saveur, la soupe de potiron au lait de coco et a la citronnelle,  le tout accompagné de riz gluant. Un détail de taille pour l'Asie : serviette de table en tissus ! Ça change du PQ !Aussi le jeune hôte de ces lieux nommé hôme, est d'une grande convivialité et pas avare de conseils de balades aux alentours.Cet établissement propose également des bains de vapeur aux herbes, et des massages Lao totalement décontractants.
