As you close your eyes, warm hands work their magic on your skin as your body relaxes and your mind lets all of its cares go. You are in Malaysia, in one of the luxury spas on a little island by the seashore having the holiday of your life. Now, this is what they call bliss.
A slice of paradise greets you the moment you step into any spa in Malaysia. Almost every resort in this country offers you wellness at their fingertips. You can choose from a medley of treatments – Ayurvedic, Balinese, Thai , Chinese and the quintessential Malay .

Pamper yourself with a massage or try out any of the organic treatments or smear yourself with beauty products, Malaysia will bring you back as a fresh and new you.
