Had a one hour oil massage. The massage itself was nice, but the place was not relaxing and was very loud and unprofessional. Kids came in a few times during, jumping and even climbing on the massage bed, while their mathers (who probably work there) chase them. It was funny at first, but kind of annoying after 3-4 times.

This truly was the best massage I've ever had. The oil they use smells amazing, the music was relaxing. I felt so good and happy afterwards. Do yourself a favor and come here!

No good massage, no good sauna! Didn't enjoy it at all. Staff is friendly but no professional masseurs.

Well stumbled across this place at the end of the day, decided to have a full body massage as you do. Nice and atmospheric friendly staff too, well worth checking out if you want to unwind at the end of the day.

I went there after a day trek to 100 waterfall. Strong hands and really nice atmosphere in the room. I could have stayed there for hours. There were other traveller's also behind the curtain to take head and foot massage.

This is a sauna not a bath as stated up sabai sabai, so if you are expecting something similar to Sapa, Vietnam so may be disappointed. The room gets really hot but we kept popping in and out every ten minutes or so and drinking tea in between. We used it as preparation before our night bus to help us... More

I got a full body oil massage here this afternoon and it was wonderful! I still feel so relaxed! It cost 70,000 kip which was more expensive than the guide books said but it was still worth it! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that in the garden there were kids toys all around and dogs lying about,... More

Went for a foot massage after climbing up to the viewpoint - had one foot massages for 45 minutes and the other for 15. Not the best I've had. Sit outside on the verandah so it got very hot and uncomfortable

We found out about Sabai Sabai from Nong Khiaw Adventure's guide, Kent. He was our tracking guide to tad mok waterfall and also the owner of Sabai Sabai Massage & Restaurant. He invited us to have our dinner at his restaurant after the trek. December is winter time in Northern Laos, and Kent suggested that we should try Laos BBQ.... More

The quality of the massage and value for money was excellent. The steam bath was also the best one I've ever had - strong aromatherapy oils and lovely herbal tea afterwards. The steam bath is only open if there are enough advance bookings. Be patient, Sabai Sabai is run by a quite an old local Laotian couple - when their... More

Face au temple du village de Nong Khiaw, un joli restaurant construit tout en matériau naturel qui ne manque vraiment pas de charme surtout le soir avec ses lumières tamisées. Installés sur des coussins autours d'une table basse, ou plus occidental, table haute, nous testerons la cuisine traditionnelle Laotienne comme par exemple le bambou farci au porc, qui laisse un souvenir impérissable, le lapp au poulet envoûtant de saveur, la soupe de potiron au lait de coco et a la citronnelle,  le tout accompagné de riz gluant. Un détail de taille pour l'Asie : serviette de table en tissus ! Ça change du PQ !Aussi le jeune hôte de ces lieux nommé hôme, est d'une grande convivialité et pas avare de conseils de balades aux alentours.Cet établissement propose également des bains de vapeur aux herbes, et des massages Lao totalement décontractants.
