Fantastic massage experience. Highly professonal staff, superb facilities. The whole place oozes class. I had the aromatherapy massage, one hour and was completely satisfied. I tried quite a few other places suggested here in tripadvisor (some that turned out to be atrocious) but nothing came close to the high standards here.

This was a wonderful experience. A gorgeous location on the river, very tropical decor and beautiful surroundings. I highly recommend the facial and body massage package. It was a really lovely experience and I found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. This is well worth a visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

I came to My Spa for a day of relaxation with a friend of mine. The space is beautiful - relaxing, good mix of modern and traditional Vietnamese. The facilities are clean and the amenities are thoughtful.

That day we had facials, mud wraps and Scandinavian neck/back massage. The facial was ok (although not sure when a facial consisted of rubbing my chest, anyways), but I was disappointed that they didn't do any extractions. Basically, it was just 45 mins of rubbing lotions on my face.. I feel like I could do that myself at home. The mud wrap was also just ok - I didn't feel my body was that must softer afterwards - so really, you just have mud wrapped on and then you lay in saran wrap. Again, could I do this myself at home? Maybe. The neck/back massage was rather good. The following day I was sore literally up my vertebrae. To me, that is a sign of a good massage.

My overall experience can be summed up by my return experience - I came back a few weeks later and just purchased the day pass - working out (treadmill & fitness class, swim, sauna). To me, My Spa is good for the setting and facilities. The treatments are not worth the extra cost you pay there.

The Spa is part of the resort hotel next door. We are amazed by the beautiful environment. We had 10 min sauna and shower followed by 1 hr swedish massage (~ US$40), 1 hr aromatherapy massage(~US$40) and 1 hr foot massage (~US$20 ). We love the body massage! The therapists massaged our body with good pressure. Would suggest their foot massage to focus more one pressure points. Overall, good value!

I liked the whole outlook of the place (they have an infinity pool which I would have definitely paid to use if I was there earlier) and the masseurs were professional. I did a hot stone massage while my mum a chocolate wrap, yums! We came out feeling rejuvenated. Recommended!
