This franchise has always been the go-to destination for Thai massages as they are well-versed in the ancient therapy that has been practised for over 2,500 years and the benefits and healing properties it provides. Now welcoming a brand-new outlet at the Tropicana Gardens Mall with swanky a new look, making Thai Odyssey’s total of outlets nationwide to 40, this is the place to head to if you want to try out a Traditional Thai Massage. Without any oils or lotions, this treatment uses deep pressure and stretching techniques to relieve joint stiffness, reduce back pain, stimulate blood circulation and relax the body. For peace of mind, do know that all treatment rooms are sanitised before and after each use, meanwhile, the premises are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected every three hours.

We’ve been frequenting COCOdry since its inception and we can’t wait to make our next appointment. Be treated to a soothing shampoo and scalp massage, before choosing a hairstyle of your choice and letting your stylist revive your hair magic. We love the extra 10 minutes of washing that the Tai Tai option has to offer, but if you’re in a rush, their Hustler Wash Blow Style is also a great pick for quick pampering that doesn’t compromise on care and relaxation.

Walking On Sunshine Cinderella Treatment


New kid on the block, we’ve been eyeing the Walking On Sunshine space at 163 Retail Park for a while now, wondering when it’d make its debut. To our excitement, it is now finally open for business, offering a range of hair services, with an attached cafe as well. Flowers and green foliage overwhelm the space—it’s as if we’re in the middle of a botanical garden. Their Cinderella treatment catches our eye in an instant—not your average keratin treatment, it tames unruly, frizzy hair, nourishes damaged tresses, improves shine and strengthens hair too.

Reopening on 1 October, Hammam Spa has always been a reliable relaxing oasis we can always return to. Offering a slice of magical Moroccan beauty remedies, be sure to allocate your time accordingly, because treatments here are incredibly indulgent, and the word express or quick has no place in their walls.  For those looking for deep body rejuvenation, we recommend their four-hour Sultana Hammam. Be spoiled to a Hammam & Gommage, body masque, almond milk wash and hair mask, aromatic massage and finally a Maroc Maroc revitalising facial.

With a new branch recently opening at the buzzing Taman Tunku strip, we’ve got a date at Kenny Hill Bakers, followed by a manicure at Posh already set in our calendars. The new space is inviting and serene with wispy curtains providing privacy between chairs. We’re fans of their Signature manicure and pedicures, but their waxing and eyelash extension services are something we’re eager to try too!

Neal Yard Remedies Organic Lymphatic Facial


Neal Yard Remedies offer a wide range of organic therapies and treatments—their facials all powered by their illustrious collection of products. Having been cooped up at home for an extended period of time, we turn to them to drain and stimulate the natural lymphatic movement with their Organic Lymphatic Facial. Starting with a shoulder massage to release tension and trigger lymphatic points, you’re then treated to an 80-minute facial massage that harnesses the power of gua shas and essential oils to promote skin metabolism and to ultimately reveal a more radiant and vibrant complexion.

From their impressive gym to innovative spa treatments, we can’t think of a better place to revitalise, rejuvenate and renew. Infusing smart Chromotherapy treatments into their spa remedies, it makes each experience individually yours. On offer are a number of massages, scrubs and facials, but it’s their Hawaii Lomi Lomi massage that stands out. A massage technique that’s not as commonly found here, it combines ancient Hawaiian therapeutic techniques that replicate soothing waves to promote relaxation and enhance an overall sense of well-being.
