Hanoi isn’t to be left out on pampering with its extensive roster of spas
After a tiring flight and lingering jet lag, all you want is a relaxing Hanoi massage. They have traditional treatments and a hint of Western influence. If you’d been to a lot of touring and walking, you should refresh yourself in one of these wellness centers.
1. Hanoi La Belle Spa
La Belle offers their unique massage that starts from foot ritual followed by a massage using La Belle oil plus Thai herbs. They will seal this relaxing treat with a head massage and I promise you can’t resist to fall asleep. All these for US$39 to US$48 depending on the length you’ll choose.
They also have the Luxury Four Hands Massage, Bamboo Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, Asian Blend, and Traditional choices. If you’re not up for a full body massage, you can either have a face treatment, foot therapy, or body scrub. Anyway, I suggest that you ask about their spa packages. It may cost more than a hundred bucks but it’s worth the try.
2. Midori Spa
Like the first spa, Midori also has body massage and different treatments. The catch here is the steam bath, perfect if you’re visiting during the winter in Hanoi. A 20-minute steam bath costs only US$3.5 and if you have more budget, you can follow it with a body scrub using rice bran for just US$13.5 for a 30-minute session.

For a replenishing spa session, I suggest that you try the “Lady Indulgence Package” for US$84. With this, you can relax for three and half hours in coconut body wrap, milk moisturizing scrub, luxurious facial treatment, and purity massage. For sensitive skin, the Vietnamese Coconut Wrap is the best for US$28.6.
