Recommendation: Best health spa in Kuala Lumpur?

Hello,

I've decided to get a gift certificate to a spa for my assistant at work, who is exceptionally good and has gone way beyond her job and saved me in many pinches since I've gotten here.

Can anyone recommend a top quality spa that a local Malaysian would really appreciate going to? Is there anything that is well agreed is the best? I remember seeing a thread about some sketchy places called "health spas" and I don't want to come anywhere near one of those (although she would probably still appreciate the thought and throw it away.)

The only place I could think of that probably is a real spa and not a parlor masquerading as a spa is the Marriott on Bukit Bintang. Have never been, but will go check it out tomorrow unless there are other recommendations. Really not into spas, so don't know where to start to look for this kind of a thing....

Thx!!!

The one in Marriott is great !!
Top massage and great decor.

Otherwise you have Energy Day Spa in Great Eastern Mall or Mont' Kiara
Elected Best Spa in 2004. Very professionnal.

Osmozis is not bad too...

And a few others i heard of but did not try :)

heya banker,

personally find Mandarin Oriental's spa very comprehensive...a tad pricey, but there are great packages...

you're absolutely right about staying away from the questionable spots....*nods*

You could offer her a small [spam word detected]! that way she could spend it the way that she pleased.

broth--...*scratches chin*....my online observation of you, richard has taken a different dimension altogether.... :P

if she's going to stay there and she doesn't want 'additional benefits' that come with a spa -- she isn't going to receive any....I've stayed there with friends for a weekend and we've enjoyed the facilities there.

last I checked - *coughs*, they service um men.

I have the distinct impression Banker wants to have his evil ways with his Assistant and wishes to do some arousing at a spar.....better just book a hotel room mate!
