This review is about the best spas and massage parlours in Medan. If you want to read about the best bars and clubs, please read the following review: Medan Nightlife.

Medan is a conservative city. I feel it is also much more religious than Java in particular.

There are so few foreigners in town that if you are white, people will look at you as if you were an alien. I didn't feel really comfortable there to be frankly speaking. Whenever I was walking around in the city, I could hear derogatory comments or racist slurs such as "idiot bule". 

Unsurprisingly, massage parlours and spas in Medan are quite discreet. From what I read in the news, several of them have been shut down or raided by the police in the past couple years. To my knowledge, these include Glamour Spa, Escape Spa, D'Blues Spa, Dream Spa and Grand Winner Spa. The last three were apparently shut down in November 2014. Diamond Spa as well was raided and since then, they have changed their concept into a regular day spa.

The following list of spa are mostly inexpensive ones except for Delta, Elegant and Escape which are a bit more high-range. Expect to pay around 400,000 for these, and less than 250,000rp for the other ones. The first 3 are plus plus, for the other ones it is more random depending on the girl.

If a place is closed down, or if you want to list a new massage parlour, please just drop a comment below the review.

Delta Spa Medan

If I had an advice, it would be to stick with Delta Spa as they are part of a big group and most certainly pay for protection. Delta Spa Medan is located inside Grand Delta Hotel, part of the same Puri Group.

They have a great promotion at the moment: If you stay one night in Grand Delta Hotel, you will get a free massage.
