Borneo Vanilla Orchid and Honey Cocoon, RM765 for 150 minutes
“Using raw, natural products from the Borneo island, this treatment started with a
ginger-based foot scrub, followed by a gentle body buffing of sweet-scented vanilla pods and yoghurt to soften my skin. Next, I was wrapped in a warm honey cacao fruit mask before moving on
to a full body massage using toasted “coco-nilla”. An equally scrumptious vanilla honey hair mask was then applied to my hair using Indian scalp massage techniques. After a quick rinse,
an indulgent Balinese full body massage ensued, which not only relieved my spine
but left me feeling as if I was on a deserted island for the rest of the day.” —Teng Siew Lee, Art Director
