With unique and state-of-the-art therapies—such as Touch Therapies—The RuMa Hotel and Residences' UR SPA is ready to be your urban sanctuary once again beginning 4 August 2020. Here's your chance to win that experience for yourself!

The past few months have been unprecedented (no) thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Countries were on lockdown and everyday life as we know it turned into an unfamiliar reality. Closer to home, Malaysia saw the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) on 18 March 2020 to curb and control the spread of the novel coronavirus. This saw hotels in KL (and all over the country) shutting temporarily in adherence to MCO, including The RuMa Hotel and Residences. Well, the good news is that The RuMa Hotel and Residences is ready to welcome you back into their urban sanctuary in the heart of KL.

The first of their services that you can enjoy is their UR SPA. With spas now permitted to operate during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), The RuMa Hotel and Residences has decided to open its doors for dining and wellness patrons on 4 August to facilitate the reopening process. What better time to truly take a break and treat yourself (and loved ones) to a well-deserved rejuvenating spa session. You know you want (and need) to. 

Psst... Keep reading to find out how you can win yourself (and a lucky loved one) a pampering session in our giveaway below!

In case you were wondering, room bookings are now available for arrivals from 28 August.

You might have previously read our staycation review of The RuMa Hotel and Residences (and how convenient its location is) or perhaps dined at its restaurant ATAS Modern Malaysian Eatery. If so, you might be familiar with the hotel's signature style of embracing the emotional, aesthetic quality and local context, synonymous with its parent company Urban Resort Concepts's vision. Their UR SPA is no different. Placing emphasis on guests' needs, it's a sanctuary that offers tailor-made therapies. Developed using creators of science-based conscious formulas (Comfort Zone), their supercharged treatments can thus be tailored to the individual's schedule for targeted, optimal results.

UR SPA offers a wide range of innovative and result-driven therapies—so much so that you'll be spoilt for choice. To help you decide, however, we would highly recommend their Touch Therapies, one of the signature treatments where the healing benefits of touch are maximised to enhance your sense of self and well-being. That being said, there are ten different touch therapies to choose from, and here are some of the popular ones you need to try:

1) Pro-Sleep Massage

For the ultimate relaxation, the Pro-Sleep Massage will activate three main sensorial pathways—olfactive, tactile, and hearing—while combining a blend of essential oils, bespoke Tranquility Sound, Ayurvedic, and Indonesian Sea Malay modalities. Soft brushes will also be used to gently guide your way to achieve a quiet and peaceful state of mind and body.

Price: RM490 (60 minutes)

2) Dusun Inan Body Therapy

An award-winning treatment featuring a deep tissue massage derived from an age-old traditional therapy practised by a local tribe from Borneo, the Lotud Dusuns, that has since been passed down through generations. The story is that women in this rice-growing region learned the skills and techniques of massage to help reduce the aches from a day of hard work in the paddy fields. 

Price: RM390 (60 minutes)

3) Silat Stretch

If you're personally not a fan of using oil in your spa treatments or an active person who dabbles regularly in workouts or sports, this dry treatment could be the one for you. A dynamic treatment that combines expansion, stretching, mobilisation, and 'unfolds' based on the philosophy of Silat martial arts, which prioritises energy and movement, breathing, relaxation and healing.

Price: RM430 (60 minutes)

While spas are allowed to re-open throughout the course of RMCO, take note that there is a maximum time limit of 60 minutes for treatments. Fret not! In addition to Touch Therapies, UR SPA also offers other indulgent one-of-a-kind treatments such as exfoliations, envelopments, skin fitness facials and express treatments. Plus, UR Spa has some amazing re-opening specials on all Touch Therapies from 4 - 31 August 2020 (valid for treatments between 2pm and 5pm only).

As for SOPs, rest assured that The RuMa Hotel and Residences and UR SPA are operating to the latest standards of safety measures, all of which have been designed to constantly evolve and adapt. Rooms, equipment, and linens are changed after every treatment. Prior to body treatments, guests are required to shower. Moreover, therapists are equipped with face shields and personal protective equipment. These health and hygiene protocols at the hotel demonstrate their commitment to the health and well-being of guests.
