  1. You get what you pay for . . .

    “I was hesitant to visit Nadam after reading many of the recent reviews here and elsewhere; however, it is relatively close to my current home so I decided to take a drive over there (on my moto). The parking was easy enough to find - there are plenty of signs showing where Nadam parking is. However, I needed the attendants help to negotiate which alleyway the spa was hidden down. The doors they show opening in their video isn't where you enter. Just to the left of the large doors the entrance to the cashier. (You'll pay upon leaving.) There was no one outside to greet or guide as indicated in other reviews.

    Everyone is right about the front desk, but he is only there to give you a bottle of water and a locker key - then he points towards the locker room. (Other places are more adept at guiding first timers around.) I found the locker room and was offered a towel to wrap around my waist, a hand towel, and a pair of flip flops. After that you are pretty much on your own to explore and find out what is where. Their are plenty of signs everywhere indicated what is beyond a door. I passed the dark room and found a door with 'body services'. This is where you can order a massage and just beyond this is the gym area.

    The same menu on their website is shown to you in a booklet. After you choose your time and services, they allow you to pic from face shots of several guys. So so looking in my opinion; but I wasn't there for pretty guys. (Speaking of, I wasn't overly impressed with the clientele, but at 7:30pm there were plenty of younger and older guys walking around in their towels. Not sure where they were always off to - just walking around.) I picked the 100 minute package that included an oil massage, body scrub, an herbal compression (call it body scrub II), water and a sliced apple. Plenty of guys walking about, but again, nothing to drop my jaw for.

    My therapist lead me upstairs to a private room, with a bed on the floor and a shower area with another mat inside of that. After removing my towel, the massage started face down. It was typical, yet very sensual. My therapist made a point of touching just about anything he could with light gentle brush strokes as he worked an area of my back, glutes, and thighs. I've been getting massages for 20+ years and actually learned a new position from him. When he was done with my back and finished teasing, I turned over.

    He then proceeded to massage my stomach, chest, and groin. I should note that he was dressed in his shorts the entire time. Not 10 minutes into working my front, he oiled up his hands and focused on (his words) my big bird. So, yes, happy endings do happen here. It could be the luck of the draw, the package chosen, the specific therapist, or (doubtfully) the client. But the signs, what is posted on their website and the massage menu is for show in my opinion.

    Fortunately the session wasn't over at this point. He quickly showered and then had me enter the shower area to receive my body scrub. Again, no area was off limits. (I'm sure you can stipulate no-go zones; but I wasn't there for less in the long run.)

    The massage: memorable. The body scrub: relaxing. Overall experience 5/5. I docked a little in the service due to the front desk and lack of guidance. But when I go back I'll know what to do and where to go.“

  2. No Happy Ending

    “Visited on a Wednesday afternoon around 3pm with my partner. We were given locker keys & shown in by a cute guy to the locker area without having to pay, and then left to change into towels without any further explanation of how everything worked.

    We had a look around at the facilities which were very clean & nice. Not many guys around so we decided to get a massage. I wanted the guy that showed us in but he was "busy" (on his phone...).

    Massages themselves were good, but no happy ending, which is written on posters around the place, and which was pointed to when my bf asked "is that it?". During the massage they are a bit of a tease and then....nothing. Just a very awkward thank you very much you can get dressed now. No shower before or after, despite there being a shower in the room.

    There was a bit of action here & there but most guys seemed shy & there were lots of warnings about it being illegal to have sex. Few hot guys around although more were starting to come when we had to leave at 5. I think they employ a lot of hot staff to walk around, some in towels, so that u think the clientele is better than it really is.

    Nice experience, but I wouldn't go back & wished I'd gotten a massage somewhere else we're I'd have gotten the ending I was after.“

  4. There alwasy plus & minus

    “Nice herbs steamy steam room but small same as the dry sauna, swimming pool is not a genuine for a swim as it rather be like mini soaking basin in some points. It is clean and a bit large with no private room if you end up having fun with someone although it won't happen for my self, there was no lube & condom found anywhere in this place, not sure if it is upon request but didn't see any notice about it. Tried once and that will be it, seen and believed!
    Staffs are friendly with not to forget to mention.“

  5. Super nice venue

    “I visited Nadam Spa on Friday February 17. As the earlier reviews mentioned, this place is indeed super nice and tasteful. Could be one of the most beautiful saunas in Asia.

    The masseurs are attractive. Don't be shy about asking a masseur working the bookings desk if he's available himself for the massage.

    There are no private rooms, and most of the action took place in the hot pool. There were a lot of people of all ages when I was there, but perhaps only one or two in decent shape.

    Finally, the front desk guy at the entrance has no customer service skills. NONE. He's the one with his hair back in a pony tail. If you encounter him and he's rude, don't be shy and be forceful back; he'll soon smarten up and be more helpful. The guys working the massage desk were far more pleasant.“

  6. Clean and wonderful massage

    “I was in Nadam Spa and i had a great experienced. The place is clean and nice ambience. The masseurs are like Adonis. I think because I am young and cute filipino and he voluntarily did the extra without any words. He keeps in doing. I love it.The good point is to choose a masseur who doesn't know how to speak in English because he can't offer any prize. I just gave him a tip of 200,000 dong plus the 400,000 dong massage.

    Recommend is Matthew

    I will never forget him and I have the reasons to come back in Saigon.

    I had a chance to talk to the owner to put some signage going to Nadam because it's so difficult to find the place. I suggestes to put a flag of lgbt in order to locate the area. If it's your first time you should go around 2 pm. Not in the night.“

  7. Past and Present Nadam Spa

    “I have been here to Nadam Spa several times. I am an Expat working in VietNam. The first several times I went here, I have to say, were remarkably good. The place is so relaxing. The massage is very sensual and satisfactorily good for a long day of work. The masseurs are all great and good-looking. The room is spacious and has a small bath thub. But the last time I've been here, a week ago, after one month vacation in my hometown Dallas, I felt something has changed. The place still looks the way it was before. But as soon as I walked thru the room and locked the door, I noticed the Masseur did not cover a small rectangular hole in the door with towel. Before they always do that. So that you can have your own privacy. I also noticed, before, the massage starts with you naked. But now, they will offer you a short. And the strangest thing is, there is no sensual massage anymore. I chose an 80min massage. But it ended up only 50mins. I wont be coming back here again. Its too pricey for a worthless massage. Check out for my reviews on other places. Trust me.“

  8. Pretty amazing...

    “I went to Nadam a couple of times over the last year.... What a beautiful place! Pretty long taxi ride from District 1 (30 min) but defo worth it. It's probably true the reception staff could be nicer but the rest of the staff is really nice and really make you feel confortable. I gotta admit if was pretty quiet both times I went so I decided to have a massage. Quality of the massage was pretty good on both occasions. And the service from the masseurs was very good. They made me feel very relaxed and I enjoyed it very much. I can't really comment on the "sauna" facilities since I haven't really used them. But from what I saw it looks gorgeous. A bit on the pricey side I think. But very much recommended... I can't wait to go back!“

  9. Clean and pretty, but dark

    “First the reason why I'm bothering to write a review:
    If you like to actually look at people, don't go. The steam room, sauna, and jacuzzi are all really dark and you can't see the other people there well enough.

    That being out of the way, the place is in a local neighborhood that at night may feel sketchy, but everyone there was friendly, so don't worry about safety (at least that was my impression).
    As others have said it's clean and pretty. There's a koi pond inside with a wooden bridge and gazebo, for crying out loud. When I was there everyone else seemed to be Vietnamese except for two older white guys. It's fairly small, though. Biggest issue, again, was the very low lighting.“
