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.

    • NADAM Spa & Sauna UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2015
        12/29/1 QL13, Hiep Binh Chanh Ward, Thu Duc Dist, Utopia Map, 083-726-8028, 090-397-4955. 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 little paved road. 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 three men's complexes and by far the best gay venue 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 warm bathing pools, one with jacuzzi jets and massage fountains - gorgeous! Elsewhere, another 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. Take the stairway up to the 3/F relaxing lounge, subdivided into nooks with pillows (each big enough to accommodate couples or groups) and dimly lit by red silk lanterns. 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 well-trained and welcoming. They keep the superb facilities spotlessly clean. Calm in the afternoons, but as night falls a romantic mood settles over NaDam's amorous comrades. Open daily noon-11pm. New in 2015: foot massage machines and massage chairs; beautiful heated salt stone beds, bunks and a hidden garden in their new Relaxation Therapy section off of the locker area. Massage also available (see their listing in Massage and Spas for Men). Utopia Member Discount

        Comments from Utopians:

        "NADAM Spa & Sauna is everything it says in the ad: accommodating, friendly, professional, clean and efficient! Credit cards accepted. Note that once you cross the Binh Trieu Bridge, you take an immediate right turn down a small paved street for a very short distance and you'll see the sign for NaDam." -- Bruce, Mar 30, 2015

        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 )
