The best massages from all around the world in Budapest. Heal your body and soul while enjoying flawless relaxation!
Budapest is the city of a thousand pleasures. You can visit world-famous thermal baths or super cool water parks when in the mood for some watery fun or get a taste of the city’s nightlife and check out the coolest ruin pubs, rooftop bars and techno clubs. Alternatively, you can visit historical sights, breathtaking viewpoints, and cultural venues to do some intellectual sightseeing. And, when you’re done with (or taking a break from) these exhausting activities, treat yourself at one of the best massage parlors in the capital. To make the choice easier for you, we’ve collected the best 6 of them!
Here, you’ll see things you just can’t see anywhere else in Budapest. It would be an understatement to call Mandala Day a massage parlor: eye-grabbing interior design and unique, intimate atmosphere with dimly lit rooms, candles, statues, and indoor pools. Among their rooms you can find a tea house, a sauna, a relaxation room, and the so-called Mandala Rooms which are clearly the main attractions apart from the bathhouse. These rooms are where the magic happens: the differently furnished chambers represent the 7 types of therapies they offer, and it won’t take you much reading to realize that their list of massages and exotic treatments cover all possible options. Among many others, you can enjoy Holistic Swedish, Balinese, aromatherapy, chocolate, head, and stress relief massages at Mandala Day. Looking at their service palette you’ll realize this venue is undeniably the perfect place for a couple’s spa day. Their couple packages include romantic baths with rose petals and champagne, various massages, and more. We’re not going to lie – it all comes at a price, but if you’d like to impress the missus or mister, this is your place.

The Theory of the Five Elements, just like Thai Chi and Yin Yang, is the cornerstone of Chinese science. Each element represents an energy state, which are all parts of the life stream around us. The 5 Elements massage and spa salons in Budapest build on this knowledge to heal body and soul simultaneously. They have three locations in Budapest, each representing a different approach to massages and treatments. Now, we put their most famous venue, the Balinese Spa in the spotlight. With over 45 different types of health and medical massages and spa treatments on their list, there’s just nothing they don’t do, and they’re also famous for their highly skilled and authentic professionals from Bali island and India. Among others, they do Javanese Jamu, Marma and Abhyanga massages, as well as stomach, head, chakra, and various foot massages. They also treat children between the age of 2 and 12, and have couple’s activities, weight loss programs, facial, body, scrub treatments, and saunas. This venue really is an all-around spa and massage heaven, which is impossible to leave with any tension in your body. If you had a great time here, their other parlors, the 5 Elements Thai Spa Salon and the Ayurvedic Day Spa are also definitely worth a try!

When you combine Hungarian enthusiasm and professionalism with eastern sciences, you get Krisztina Massage Salons, one of the best massage parlor chains in Budapest. Unlike the previous venues, this place works with Hungarian masseurs only. Don’t be tricked by the fact that all staff members are ladies – they’re professionals, so no happy ending or other erotic services are available here. Although if you’re looking for that kind of relaxation, we can certainly recommend a few places[I10] for that as well. The number of their facilities speaks of success – they heal their customers at three different locations now, offering the same high-quality services in all of them. On their palette, you’ll find lots of massage types including classic Swedish and sports massage, cellulite and lymphatic massage, and even Russian-Tibetan honey massage. What’s more, they’re so kind, they’ve put diet plans and recipes on their website – totally free of charge.

Sparsh is the Sanskrit word for “healing touch”. Ayurveda comes from India, and it’s the most ancient alternative medicine system known to humanity. It counts as a pseudoscience nowadays, but many believe in their holistic healing method which examines the body and the soul together. The specialty of their treatments will become evident immediately if you have a look at their services. If you thought our previous places had exotic sounding remedies, you were wrong. We’re not even trying with the original names, but the English translations will surely give you an idea. What do you think of a Third Eye Therapy? And a Herbal Rice Poultice Massage? Maybe a Herbal Leaf Bag Massage? OK, at least we’ve heard of that one before. But don’t worry, in addition to the weirdly named therapies, they do regular back, neck, and leg massages, as well as organic, facial beauty treatments. But wait, there’s more! Pregnancy massage, body detoxification, migraine and metabolic disorder management are also all in their repertoire. We cannot promise that they’ll all do what they’re said to, but if you’re a spiritual person and you believe in them, anything can happen!
