Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.
I finally made it to a spa, YAY!!!…and several times, too, thanks to a few separate invitations by other spouses as a “get-to-know-you” activity – no one has to ask me twice to go on a spa date! Manee Spa is a little oasis for self-indulgent services that pamper you from head to toe, all for a very reasonable price. So reasonable that it is slowly becoming my second home here in Vientiane. It also happens to be a stone’s throw away from the kids’ school and the market that we frequent for international food products, making it an irresistible stop along my daily errands route. The spa is housed in a wooden bungalow which sits amongst a tranquil lush flower-filled garden and trickling fountains. I’m lucky that Manee Spa is close to my neighborhood and not further away in the tourist district of the city. Although I haven’t tried other spas yet Manee’s proximity and peaceful surroundings along with the quality of services I’ve tried here will make it hard to top. Spa date anyone?
Manee Spa is located in Ban Thongang – hom 9 (near Lao Electric), 021-353-207.
Here are prices for services I’ve tried so far:
