Holiday 2022: Where to head to for some year-end pampering

‘Tis the month of love and gifting, and what often happens during this time is that a lot of us tend to go all out to show how much we care for our loved ones but, in the process, often forget to celebrate our self-worth and achievements throughout the year. 

As you’re giving, don’t miss out on the chance to treat yourself to some blissful relaxation after the gruelling year you’ve been through. Whether it’s a heavenly massage or some alone time to de-stress and recharge in a luxurious room or suite, there’s something for you to do at The RuMa Hotel and Residences, which offers a range of irresistible offerings for Christmas and the New Year. Located right in the heart of the city and a stone’s throw from Kuala Lumpur’s shopping district on Jalan Bukit Bintang, the luxury hotel offers all the intimacies of a home in an opulent, contemporary setting that exudes the feeling of being in an urban resort.

Here’s what we recommend indulging in.

For extreme serenity

Enhance the warmth and fuzziness you feel around this time of the year with a pampering session at The RuMa’s award-winning UR Spa. For a gratifying, fuss-free experience, pick the delightful UR Sparkling Spa Package, which features the signature Massage & Body Exfoliation (to unravel those tight knots!) and Botanical Hair & Scalp Treatment, complemented by one glass of sparkling wine at RM599 per person. 

However, if you’re pressed for time, pick UR Spa’s Jolly Hour treatment, which offers a 60-minute Dusun Inan deep-tissue massage—inspired by old traditional therapy practised by the local tribes from Nothern Borneo—for RM320 per person.

Bonus: both packages are available until the 31st of January 2023, and offer extra festive treats such as a skincare range by Comfort Zone, discount vouchers and retail products, plus, a complimentary male facial hair grooming with a purchase of any Truefitt & Hill Barber treatment. 

Have a festive staycation

If you still haven’t made plans for Christmas, make your celebrations even more memorable at The RuMa Hotel. On the 24th and 25th of December, preferred bank partners get an extra 10 per cent off for the Jingle Jangle Staycation package, which includes a one-night stay, breakfast for two, a Christmas set dinner at ATAS for two, pre-dinner drinks at SEVEN Lobby Bar and more.

Meanwhile, on the 31st of December, The Countdown Staycation will be offering 10 per cent off for stays, which includes a one-night stay, breakfast for two, a New Year’s Eve dinner at ATAS, pre-dinner drinks at SEVEN Lobby Bar for two persons, and more.
