Spa Village at Pangkor Laut Resort

P1230454

Calming elements

Spa sessions are a luxury which I reserve for special occasions or when I get extra moolah from freelance work. They are also a luxury I enjoy when I do hotel reviews, not all the time but most of the time. I’ve been fortunate to try some really great spa massages, including this recent indulgence at The Spa Village, Pangkor Laut Resort.

Foot bath…

…followed by Chinese Foot Pounding

My session began with a soothing foot bath and Chinese foot pounding, said to stimulate lymphatic drainage and boost the immune system. Soon after, I was escorted to the bath houses where I soon began the traditional Malay ‘circulating’ bath. My therapist Rina was most accommodating and explained the treatment process step by step.

Make a wish and toss the coin into the well

I made my wish

I was first asked to make a wish by the well and toss a coin in. Then, the circulating bath began, where I moved from one water outlet to the other. It felt good as the water was crisp and refreshing.

Heated Rotenburu pool

After putting my head over four types of steam facial with different invigorating scents, I then proceeded to the Japanese bath followed by a dip in the heated Rotenburu pool. I loved this pool experience because it was warm and soothing to the body.

Signature Shanghai Scrub

Fashioned to look like a Chinese kitchen

Finally, the Shanghai Scrub in a Chinese bath house fashioned to look like a kitchen. I enjoyed a gentle yet exfoliating wash, followed by a cup of ginger tea before my spa treatment began.

Ginger tea after the bath ritual

I was given the Campur-Campur treatment, combining the best techniques of Malay and Thai massage. Steamed herbs were pressed along my body using a traditional steam pouch and the deft kneads from my therapist’s hands. My pressure points were tended to without causing too much tension — I was in a state of zen. 🙂

Wood elements are aplenty

It was one of the most de-stressing massages I enjoyed – my tensed shoulders were significantly relieved and I felt lighter overall. As a memento of the spa experience at Pangkor Laut Resort, I was gifted the Batik Sarong I wore during the treatment.

Campur Campur — a blend of Malay and Thai massage

Of the many spa massages I’ve tried, this is one of the few that pays great attention to detail and overall experience. Truly a relaxing journey from start to finish. For more information about Spa Village, visit the official website at www.spavillage.com/pangkorlaut.
