Not only is mud thought to have many medicinal healing properties, but it is also fun. Here are the four best spots in Nha Trang where you can partake in this effective therapeutic cleansing, which is actually surprisingly welcoming after a few days of being adventurous and sightseeing in the sun.

Thap Ba Spa

Thap Ba Hot Springs opened in 1999, the first of its kind in the city. It has now become a popular stop for locals and travelers looking for an evening of relaxation and therapeutic cleansing of the body and hence is one of the cheaper options. There are all sorts of services available at a range of costs, the cheapest being 180,000 Vietnamese Dong ($7.92). For this you will get 15 minutes in a communal mud bath and be able to take advantage of other services like the mineral waterfall, hydrotherapy wall, and swimming pool.If you do not enjoy bathing with complete strangers, private mud baths are also available, and these tubs can handle up to eight people. Of course, these are more expensive but sharing the cost with your friends will redce the cost. Paying full package here is worth it as it is cheaper than the other options in Nha Trang, yet you have similar services – four pools, two of which are thermally heated, a jacuzzi, sauna and a restaurant. Being located upriver from the Po Nagar Cham towers, means that you can combine both activities into one evening. To get to Thap Ba Spa, don’t just say “Thap Ba” as the driver may get confused and take you elsewhere. Show them the full address.

Eggs Mud Bath

Undoubtedly the most unique of all mud baths on this list, the 100 Eggs Mud Bath is best reached by taxi as it is around five miles (eight kilometers) from the city center. Built against a beautiful backdrop of mountains, everything here is inspired by eggs, from the tubs to the decorations to even the menu in the restaurant. All the mud baths here are in the shape of eggs that are about seven feet (two meters) in height and a little less wide, able to hold about three people. If you look at the spa from an elevated point of view, you will see a forest of eggs, of all sizes and colors. It’s really odd.

Other spa services are offered, such as herbal and mineral baths, swimming pools, communal saunas, and jacuzzis. There are even places to go shopping, kayaking and rock climbing, Take advantage of all of this and have a meal at the restaurant – it serves everything you could ever imagine containing eggs. There is even egg coffee, popular in Vietnam, having originated in Hanoi. If you don’t want to buy the burgers and pizzas offered here, just bring your own food and make the most of the BBQ picnic area. With such facilities, 100 Eggs Mud Bath is great for some good family fun!

I-Resort Spa

I-Resort opened in 2012 and is the fanciest of the spas mentioned here. Don’t go here for the communal mud bath packages as you can have them for cheaper in the previous options. I-Resort is for those who want to be spoiled rotten. The VIP package comes at a rate of 3,000,000 Vietnamese Dong ($132.00), and while it sounds so expensive with all those zeros, it is really worth it. With this ticket, you get your own bungalow on the hillside for the day, a 45-minute soak in a private mud bath, a private mineral pool to lounge in while you feast on the complimentary fresh fruit platter like a queen (or king?), sip coffee or herbal tea and then have a full body massage. A beautiful two-course meal tops it all off and you can choose from the extensive Western and Asian menu they have, The salmon steak is irresistible.

Galina Hotel & Spa

Spa Hotel

Galina Mud Bath & Spa is located on the third and fourth floors of the four-star Galina Hotel, making it the only mud bath available right in the city center. Despite being in a modern establishment, the mud bath area is designed to look like a cave. The solo option here is cheaper and fancier than the ones found at Thap Ba and 100 Eggs Mud Bath. For 700,000 Vietnamese Dong ($30.90) for two people, you will get access to your own mud bath, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room (even if Nha Trang alone is a sauna and steam room combined), and enjoy some time at the swimming pool. The staff are also incredibly customer-centric and go out of their way to make your experience as comfortable as possible. If you’re a guest at the hotel, you’ll recieve a 30% discount!
PS: There’s another in Da Nang just so you know!

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
