Atmosphere: luxurious tropical cocoon in the heart of the city
Looking for: full body massage therapy, total escape
Price range: RM350 – RM1500 (couples) ++
Nested in the Ritz Carlton, the Spa village is a five-star oasis of well being in one of the busiest areas of Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Bintang.
Set foot in the zen paradise filled with chic asian woods and green silk, and let your therapist lead you to your private treatment room, complete with outdoor pool, open air shower and tropical garden.
The treatments are a fusion of traditional malay / asian techniques using local ingredients twisted with modernity – just like some delicious innovative fine food. Must try: Chinese Pernakan package, starting blissfully by a (real) milk bath to channel your inner Cleopatra, followed by a succession of out-of-this-world applications: the surprising and detoxifying egg ondulation, refreshing mulberry leaf treatment for the eyes, navel activation and rattan tapping to energise the body in ancestral ways.
The Rose therapy treatment is another big hit, and the East meets west package includes a fruity scrub that ravishes the skin and mind alike.
Finish with a refined tea by the lunge pool and savour this taste of asian serenity.
Favorite: the Cleopatra induced feeling by the milk bath. Oh and the egg ondulation.
Assets: expert hands in a zen setting
