The best spas in KL for a little pick-me-up
Relax and unwind
The last two years have been... stressful, to say the least. While things have largely opened up for the fully vaccinated, the ever-looming pandemic (and all of the many variants that have cropped up with it) has, understandably, left us all a little tense. Lucky for us, the spas have reopened with some comfortingly strict SOPs, which means we can get a little release without too much risk.
So, whether you're looking for a couple's retreat for some quality time with your SO, planning a pampering surprise for your girls or just craving a plain ol' treat for yourself, we've found the best spas in KL to get you some much-needed R&R.
Banyan Tree Spa, Kuala Lumpur
Located on the 53rd floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel, experience breathtaking aerial views of Kuala Lumpur as soon as you step in. In contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city down below, the spa itself feels like an oasis of serenity with its Bali-inspired interior and the calming scent of lemongrass in the air. Focusing mainly on traditional Asian therapies such as the signature Nusantara massage—which combines thumb pressure and kneading to relieve tension from your body—or the Tu Na treatment inspired by Chinese traditions to improve mobility and circulatory health, and more, you’ll indeed walk out feeling relaxed and refreshed.
