There are plenty of choices to suit all budgets when it comes to day spa pampering in Luang Prabang. For a ‘charitable massage’ then look no further than the Lao Red Cross who offer a full body massage for US$5 and who also have an onsite sauna. Offering clients plenty of facials, scrubs and massages, the Spa Garden is a popular spot in scenic surroundings. If you’re feeling brave then try a local Kamu massage at the Kamu Spa where oil and strong pressure is applied to really help you loosen up.
More upmarket is the Mekong Spa based at La Résidence Phou Vao. Traditional Lao herbs and
locally sourced organic botanicals are combined for use in their body treatments which are given in one of their elegant pavilions. They also offer packages and special deals for individuals or couples seeking to experience a few different therapies.
