With ever increasing stress and day-to-day pressures, there is no time like the present to take a break and relax at one of Malaysia’s world renowned spa resorts.
An integral part of Malaysian culture, many spas can be found in Kuala Lumpur but are mostly hidden amongst the white sands and palm trees of beach resorts and amid the mountainous rainforests.
Nothing could be more relaxing than listening to the live sounds of the rainforest or the gentle lapping of the waves and inhaling the healing sea breeze whilst an expert Malay masseur alleviates muscular aches and pains, knowing that you have saved 23% on a 10-night stay at a Langkawi Spa & Resort and 20% on all treatments. There are a variety of value for money packages available from Flight Centre, Hayes and Jarvis, Kuoni and Trailfinders, please see below for more detail.
Health and wellness therapies have long been embedded in Malaysian culture and have now become something of a fine art. Because of the rich diversity of cultures, there are a vast number of therapy types and techniques that have been passed down through the generations. Malaysia spa treatments have essences of Javanese remedies and ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicines as well as Chinese Shiatsu practices amongst others.
Spa treatments involve herbal baths, exotic massage oils and full body scrubs, using coconut milk, aloe vera, crushed herbaceous leaves and palm sugar. Most spa resorts, like the world famous spa village of Pangkor Laut, also come complete with steam rooms, saunas, Jacuzzis and pools to ensure a detoxifying and rejuvenating experience.
