Saunas and Fitness for Men

      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.

        372/25 Cach Mang Thang Tam St (small alley opposite the large "Bakery" shop), Dist 3, Utopia Map, 2248-6371. Go all the way down to the end of the alley and look for the samll TD sign. This small neighborhood sauna is a little gem. Beautifully decorated in a colorful, Moroccan style. The patrons are gorgeous, fit and friendly. G/F has reception area and lockers (be sure to wear the rubber slippers provided because the stairs and landings are otherwise trecherously slippery). 2/F and 3/F have massage rooms, bathrooms and a resting nook. 4/F has dry sauna, steam room, and a relaxing lounge. That's it - hot men, warm sauna.

    • Binh Minh UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2013
        Bld L 19, Number 1 St (Đường Số 1 St), Ward 3, Binh Thanh Dist, Utopia Map, 090-264-1009. 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. Open daily 9am-10pm. Số L 19. Đường Số 1 Khu Chung Cư Miếu Nổi, Phường 3. Quận Bnh Thạnh, Thnh Phố Hochiminh, Tel 0902 641 009 ( hỏi anh Nghị. Nếu tm khng được địa chỉ )

      NaDam Spa UTOPIA VISITED AUG 2014
        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:

        "NaDam Spa is probably the best sauna in Vietnam. Very nice decor and good crowd as well - regardless of which day you go. The only setback is it's quite a distance from Dist 1 - about 20-30 minutes by taxi. Follow the instructions given in Utopia. G/F is the locker area where you will be given a small towel, a big towel, and a pair of slippers, all wrapped in a plastic bag. There are two dry saunas and one steam room. The specialty is a sauna where they 'BBQ' pineapples over the heat. There's a medium size jacuzzi (can fit 10 people at least) and a smaller one (for perhaps 7). The place is quite dim so loads of actions happening. You can try their massage as well. All staff (masseurs or non-masseurs) are very gorgeous! They are very friendly as well. Worth a try!" -- younggun80, Jul 1, 2014

        "NaDam is probably the most beautiful sauna in SE Asia after Babylon. They have spent a lot of money on this place. A place to meet people, mainly, as there are not many private places. Most discrete is the spa. After exit on Road 13, first turn off on right after bridge. Alight near the big tree and walk left down a small alley and then immediately right and you will see the entrance in front of you. Taxis a bit harder to hail as you need to go back on opposite side of Road 13 and wait for one coming thru the toll booths. Popular with Singaporeans and Thai here. Not many caucasians. Pigeon English spoken." -- bigcat22, Feb 22, 2014

        "A nice, very well-run facility. Good English is not widely spoken by the staff, but they were friendly and helpful. Good massage available from a selection of masseurs. And yes they will expect a tip! Fun to be had in the spa pools, but nowhere really to go off with someone. Tucked away from the main road, so if going for the first time follow the given directions carefully - the turn-off really is immediately after the bridge! Well worth checking out." -- bear4unz, Jan 14, 2014
