I hv chosen one hour head and shoulder massage for 600k kip. But feeling disappointed that the masseur was playing hand phone when doing massage. Definitely will not go back to this massage anymore. (The masseur is a young girl, there may have other better masseur)

I got the worst ever massage and left halfway. The girl that could not be older than 20 years was using her mobile phone while massaging me. I thought she may have cramp in her hands as every few seconds she will pull away. The second I found out that she was using her mobile, I stopped the treatment that... More

Lemongrass is mid-range (60,000 for a one-hour oil massage) in terms of massage places in Luang Prabang; though the price is quite cheap compared to some saunas in the area, the atmosphere is very professional. They have real massage tables and very nice partitions. There's relaxing music playing, and the massage itself was great - my masseuse seemed to have... More

A few years ago we had a very agreeable experience of this traditional massage and on a recent visit to LP hoped to repeat it. What a disappointment! We had booked earlier and as we arrived for our appointment we heard ourselves being discussed in rather derogatory terms. I guess they regarded us as just 2 more falang tourists. In... More

The girl I got was brilliant, she knew pressure points and just where to press and how deep, wasn't to hard and just good strong pressure. Free shower before and after if you want and free water and tea, Tip to the owners: tell the girls not to play noisily on their phones,nit spoils the ambience of the massage.

Went with my friend and had the head and shoulder massage witch turned out to be the worst massage ever. The girl who massaged me had no clue of what she was doing and constantly pressed really hard on my spine and my arms (had bruises afterwards) and had nothing to do with a head and shoulder massage! She was... More

Thanks for a wonderful foot massage! Me and my husband enjoy places that are used by locals. I loved the zen feeling with the dark wood interior, music and the delightful scent from the herbs. Just should have wished I had time for a steam bath!

This is not exactly a "traditional massage" place as advertised, if you know what I mean... The "masseuse" kept trying to touch me in unmassagy ways, which was not what I was there for. She only stopped when I left. On top of that, she wanted to charge me 40% more than what was announced!

I visited this sauna/massage place twice during my stay in Luang Prabang. The first visit went fine, I had a sauna and 30-minute massage. It was obvious the staff have not been trained in massage, but I enjoyed it anyway. The sauna is very good. The second time I went back (June 14), the owner, a man, encouraged me to... More
