Yes, believe it or not we had a “couple-spa” session today at the 5 star Spa Village Kuala Lumpur. Located at the 4th floor of Ritz Carlton Hotel, near jalan Imbi, KL.
We were late for our 2pm appointment just now due to some delay with Aqib’s monthly jab and his ultrasound at APSH. I’ll blog about it in another entry later. Had to actually “Rush to Relax” heheheheh!!
As we stepped into the entrance of the SV, 2 of their admin staff greeted us, such a welcoming atmosphere. “Welcome Mr.husband!” (masa ni nak ambil gambar segan pasal nanti obvious sangat nampak kan! ahahah orang nak blogging biasalah!)
We were then ushered into the “relaxing lounge” which was totally dark, only lighted by the candles on our table (kitaorg yang baru bergesa daripada Pavi yang terang bederang tu bila masuk bilik tu terus rasa black out!! had to pause for a few minutes for our eyes to adjust to the darkness)
The bird chirping in the darkness was such a lovely background to tone down and relax.
While waiting, we refresh ourself with the cooled fresh towel and drink plain water.
Two staff approached us in the darkness, introducing themself as our masseuse for today. Yes supposed to be a couple spa session with mr husband but following our muslim ways we decided to opt for separate session so that he can have the male masseuse and I with the female masseuse.(been planning for ages but we never had the umphh and time to go for such thing! so terjadilah pengalaman mr.husband ke spa buat pertama kali ehehehe….)
Mr husband was shown to his room near the “relaxing lounge” and mine was deep inside near the end corner. (mine was couple room and his was single room).
Our couple’s spa experience took 3 hours to complete the full package which included Nusantara Treatment (traditional southeast asia). This package was chosen by mr.husband la caused he was the one who arranged for this “Luxury Urban Retreat” experience for us! (terkejut tak?!)
Joanne who is my masseuse told me that we can actually choose between Trade Winds (east meets west), Traditional Royal Malay Treatment (malay), Nusantara Treatment, Gandapura (Gentlemen), Rose Therapy (Ladies) or Chinese Peranakan Treatment (no massage oil involved, pointy kindda massage).
Nusantara treatment was excellent for me, for mr.husband was ok katanya ahahah bagi orang yang pertama kali pergi spa kan! His masseuse was an Indonesian while mine was local.
Mine, start off with rose oil body massage, I requested for bali massage (dia tanya nak medium ke kuat tekan, i boleh pulak cakap nak bali style kan..tapi dia layan je…ok la tuh! malay style ni kan sakit sikit!), hair treatment with rose oil, body scrub a mixture of soya, rice, lemon grass and etc, steam and last was the rose milk bath. Ahhhh such a bliss!!
Masa dalam steam room tu, Joanne hulur cooled mineral water & face towel, fuhhh sedapnya duduk dalam panas-panas tu minum air! memang superb layanan dia! Thank you Allah, for the pleasure you provided to us today!
Lastly is the Rose Milk Bath, this time we got our “couple bath”! soooo romantic! Mr.husband joined me for our finale part.(just the two of us, in our private bath!)
Our private outdoor bath tub and shower, sambil berendam sambil minum teh & air mineral.
After bath, finally we are ready to end this 3 hours blissful relaxation & recovery moment! Rasa macam nak lagi diurut & dibelai oleh SV!!
Our rating for this Spa Village is of course 5 star, worth every Ringgit Malaysia you spend for this rejuvenating experience. It is a truly a wonderful luxury urban retreat! Totally recommended!
For those who are interested to try the couple-spa treatment, it’s awesome. There are 6 couple room and 2 single spa room.
Of course our heaps of thanks to mr husband’s client who treated us for this experience! (korang ingat kitaorg sesaja nak gi spa ni! huhuh…package yang ditaja ini bernilai RM600++ seorang hokey…) Returning customer? Definitely! Mr husband kata if I ada rezeki you gi la sorang next time, i gi buat kerja kat office while waiting for you! Haiyaahh workholic sungguh, i guess he will not be a returning customer hehe! He said it’s not my kindda thing!
Well sayang, at least you’ve experienced it!
Meanwhile, I’ll have to continue in my search to find the affordable + excellent spa experience. Bare with me! 🙂
What a great day!! Thank you sayang!
Note: Actually mr.husband received this new year gift (cert for two) on Jan 2011, i was pregnant with Aqib so we decided to peram and alhamdulillah managed to redeemed this gift just a few days before the expiry date of 18th Jan 2012.
