In Vietnam, saunas are often massage spas, and spas often have sauna facilities. On this page we describe those places which are primarily saunas where gay men meet for social activities on a friendship basis. Otherwise, we refer you to our Massage and Spas listings for details.

Comments from Utopians:
"Fabulous new location slightly nearer to the city than previous one. Spacious, clean and comfy in a newly renovated villa complete with a small outdoor pool. G/F is reception, lockers, showers. The small pool, sauna and steam room are all in the garden area next to lockers. Cruising limited and mostly in evenings when pool, sauna and steam room area have more privacy than in the daylight." -- Earthrooster, Jun 5, 2013
Phu Tho Stadium sauna UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2012
Phu Tho Stadium, Dist 10, Utopia Map. Very local scene, but friendly for visitors. Almost all the men in this sauna are gay. Steam and dry sauna. Play goes on in the soaking pool. Some guys go to take a rest in the massage rooms. You can wander down the massage room hallway and look over the swinging doors. You can try your hand at giving a massage or watch a massage being given. Busy noon-5pm, quiet after 7pm.
- Toan Thang Sauna UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2012
See listing under Massage and Spas. Clean and fairly well maintained by Vietnamese standards. The mostly younger crowd is friendly and you can find a few English speakers.
Binh Minh UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2013
L19 Hoang Hoa Tham St, Ward 3, Binh Thanh Dist, Utopia Map. Enter on 2/F. Cross Hoang Hoa Tham bridge going north and the sauna is a block and a half on the left with a large sign and attendant out front. Easy to find, friendly neighborhood gay sauna. Cheap entry (about US$3 in 2013). Locker room on 3/F and the attendant will help you get settled. There are showers in the bathrooms on all levels and also on the top floor. 4/F has a small TV lounge. 5/F has a dim mix room with lounge chairs and in the evening this room gets busy. Top floor has a nice smelling steam room (lemongrass) and a jacuzzi. Men here are friendly and unpretentious working class guys. The flirt factor is very high. Not much privacy, but connections get made and love will find a way. Crowd is mixed ages and it's more active towards the evening. They also offer massage.
Comments from Utopians:

NaDam Spa UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2013|
12/29/1 QL13, Hiep Binh Chanh Ward, Thu Duc Dist, Utopia Map, 083-726-8028, 090-397-4955, email. Take Nguyen Thi Minih Khai Rd northeast, out of town. Immediately (and we mean immediately) after you cross the Binh Trieu Bridge, turn right down the little dirt road (don't miss the turn!). You will see the Nadam Spa sign for motorcycle parking and staff who will direct you from there, or walk left and then right down a small driveway to this hidden gem. One of Asia's top five gay men's complexes and by far the best in Vietnam. The owner has created a private pleasure palace from traditional Vietnamese architectural elements from Hue. Get your locker key from the reception desk in a lobby filled with his collection of antiques. Staff will show you to your locker and provide fluffy, fresh towels and slip-proof rubber slippers. Large and sophisticated wet area with rain showers; dry sauna with rock salt for exfoliating; a steam room whose vapors rise through a large basket of fresh pandanus and lemongrass; and an infrared sauna scented by fresh pineapple! There are also two tepid bathing pools, one with jacuzzi jets and massage fountains - gorgeous! Elsewhere, a second shower area is adjacent to a beautiful Vietnamese wooden pavilion - a dim resting area filled with Chinese day beds lit by flickering salt lamps at night. A water lined walkway leads to resting nooks, tea pavilion, wooden swings, and a nearly hidden upstairs garden balcony. From the stairway off the lobby are massage rooms (see their listing under Massage & Spas) and, on 3/F, relaxing lounge subdivided into nooks with pillows (each big enough to accommodate couples or groups) and sheer silk dividers, dimly lit by red silk lanterns at night. Aside from the luxurious premises, the Vietnamese and international crowd of mostly young, fit professionals, is unbelievably friendly - nearly everyone will return your smile and most are happy to learn more about you. The staff are clearly happy, well-trained and welcoming. They keep the superb facilities spotlessly clean. Busy, te calm, in the afternoons. As night falls the romantic mood settles over NaDam's amorous comrades. Open daily noon-11pm. Sauna entry fee is about US$10 (as of Jul 2013) and cardholding Utopia Members receive a 30% discount. Planned for 2013: new swimming pool and expanded facilities. Massage available for a separate fee. Utopia Member Discount
Comments from Utopians:
"What a great place, what a great welcome. We took a taxi and they helped us get one on the way back. Free bottle of water on arrival and personal service to your well lit locker. Towels were fresh and packaged. The place was just so stylish and the locals very friendly. No problem getting attention here, everyone is just great." -- Alastair S., Feb 15, 2013
"Nadam Spa is by far the best in the city. The lighting is good, relaxing environment, very crowded and wild in the dark." -- funonbed, Dec 23, 2012
