Best Urban Escape: Banyan Tree Spa
Sense of Place – Malaysian Bliss, RM795 for 150 minutes
ROOM WITH A VIEW
Take a break from the hustle and bustle and indulge in some “new year, new you” self-care. The full-body Sense of Place – Malaysian Bliss experience at Banyan Tree Spa does the trick. Located up on the 53rd floor of Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur, spectacular views of the city also help ease the mind, body, and soul, while suite-like rooms serve as an oasis for the sensorial treatment. Contemporary calm, just what the modern woman deserves.
The head-to-toe experience starts with a refreshing scrub that enlists the glow-enhancing Tumeric Honey Cleanser, followed by a relaxing Nusantara Massage to knead away knots caused by daily stressors, from the shoulders to the feet. A gentle yet nourishing Goat Milk Face Mask leaves skin feeling baby-soft while a soothing Scalp Massage will have the body drifting into a state of bliss, quieting busy minds. Then, a fragrant Jasmine Green Tea Bath ends the treatment on a zen note.
From the iconic cityscape views to the traditional ingredients used in its enclave, Banyan Tree SPa is an all-encompassing haven for luxurious spa indulgences. Elizabeth Lee Yong, co-founder of Bowerhaus, says, “I was wowed by the Jasmine Green Tea Bath, which was filled with petals. With views that overlook the Kuala Lumpur skyline and Petronas Twin Towers, it was a perfect way to end this iconic treatment.” Truly, a sensorial treat for the urban soul.
