I had a one hour foot and leg massage that was very good. The chairs are super comfortable and the ambience of the spa is really relaxing. Your treatment ends with a lovely cup of herbal tea and fresh fruit.

I had 4 foot massages here recently. I had the 30-minute massages when I was short on time and 60 minutes when I had the time. The massages were great and very relaxing. Great prices, too. It's a wonderful way to end a busy day.

We followed the recommendation of one of the guides and found this extremely good massage place. The facilities were clean and very quiet and the service extremely high. The price was low and the overall experience great.

My friend and I both decided to get the 1.5 hour traditional Lao herbal massage. At 75000k this seemed like a good deal. My initial experience was good enough. A pretty decent full body massage complete with traditional Lao hot herbal packs. What made this a horrible experience for me was not only their lack of professionalism -- from our... More

I have been in a few spa around Namphu Fountain, this spa is the only one that has offered a very professional and really serious massage for the traditional one. Haven't tried the foot massage, but the masseuse did massage feet better than the foot massage offered by other spas around this area. However the bed looks not so clean,... More

My husband and I had a massage this afternoon at Mandarina. I chose the 2 hour oil massage. The man on reception was very friendly and showed me to an upstairs area. I was told to pick one of three beds with curtains around them (all under an air conditioner pumping out freezing air). I chose a bed and sat... More

Consistent with the comments by other reviewers, the quality of the massage here is excellent, the staff and the facilities are pleasant and the prices reasonable. The traditional lao massage with herbs was great and the foot massage the best I've had. My only issue was that the air temperature was a bit too cool in my massage cubicle but... More

I chose Package 3, the head and shoulder massage with herbs, and had a great experience. It was fairly simple surroundings (a matress on the floor separated from other people by a curtain). It was private enough though and they give you pyjamas to wear throughout the massage. The masseuse was clearly experienced and intuitive, knowing to spend more time... More

Firm pressure point massage is much preferred for my run-down sedentary lifestyle, and this place gets it right for the traditional Lao style, which is clothed, no oil, and less stretchy than say, Thai massage. Quite well-run rather than slapdash or sleazy, the signs state clearly and helpfully to tip the masseuse directly. Easy to find on a road with... More
