Lao Red Cross Sauna and Massage
Attraction details
Reviewed January 15, 2012

In short, crap. Looks like the original Red Cross from the war - run down premises, girl was more interested in looking out the window than massaging me. No atmosphere, old and scuffy. Stopped and disappeared from the room halfway through the massage.
Very very ordinary. Would not recommned at all. Have a BeerLao instead, more relaxing.

Great sauna and massage experience, staff that really know what they are doing and it's for a good cause: what's not too like? Sure it's a bit rough around the edges but that's part of the charm. The temple opposite is very impressive, too, while you are in that area.

Although the masseurs were skilled, the ambience was not conducive for a relaxing experience. The mattress used was dirty and old. Overall, it was not worth the effort to get to the place which is slightly out of the city centre.

This is not a sauna and massage to western standards. It is very basic! For my massage I had a mat on the floor and the "room" was just a cubicle with curtains round it. But then, what do you expect! It only cost a couple of dollars and it's all for charity. The massage itself was great and everything goes to the Lao Red Cross who do amazing work. Would recommend for that reason alone.

It's gritty. It's cheap. It's authentic.
They gave me the best massage I've ever had in my life. This is not a fancy spa, you will be surrounded by the actual Luang Prabangers looking for a good massage. The people who give them are professionals that I'm sure give many massages a day.
