The best spas to head to in KL for a weekend refresh
Relax and unwind
2020 has been a stressful year any which way you slice the cake. We may all have gotten a little taste of freedom with the RMCO, but there's no denying that four months of lockdown and an ever-looming pandemic has left us all a little tense. Lucky for us, the spas have reopened with some comfortingly strict SOPs, which means we can get a little release without risking our lives.
So, whether you're looking for a couple's retreat for an upcoming anniversary, planning a birthday surprise for your girls or just craving a plain ol' treat for yourself, we've found the best spas in KL to get you some much-needed R&R.
With three outlets in Bangsar, Ascott KLCC, and Fraser Residence, it's no surprise that there is such a large array of services to choose from. Mix and match the individual services for a tailored spa retreat or opt for one of their packages like the Premium Couple Retreat for a romantic getaway or the Ultimate Indulgence package for some TLC.
