Overall pleasant experience here. I tried the Langkawi Classic Massage, which I thought was good. My therapist had a good balance on both her strength and strokes, I left the place feeling very relaxed that evening and woke up the next day without any body ache (which happens to me after a bad massage). My bf tried the bamboo massage,... More

We went for the couples package consisting of an hour massage and 30 min scrub on a walk-in basis and were immediately attended to. The place has a rustic feel to it. There is no choice given of the type of oil we would like to have. The room we had was bright as only the day curtain was drawn.... More

We went here for massages and a facial. The setting is lovely and couples enjoy joint private rooms. Depending on the masseur, the experience was good to very good. However they do not provide any music while having treatment which took away from our pleasure and relaxation. The facial was okay but I've had better.

Thank you very much for the honest review given. We shall look into the music soon. Normally the customers appreciate the sounds of true nature as we are surronded by rainforest. On the facial part, we shall look into the improvement too. An immediate retaiing will take place starting today. More

We organised a pickup from our hotel to the spa.they showed up 20 minutes late. The treatment package didn't do anything for me since the entire time the employees were talking to other another - very distracting and rude. Were told that their credit card system wasn't working and that they would drive us to the ATM so we could... More

Located in amongst the bush and up a steep hill this place is very serene. We were in a private hut for couples which was really nice. Although the place is quite dated it was still an amazing experience and well worth every penny. One very small criticism would be there was no music playing. That would have topped it... More

The place was a bit in renovation already and the massages we got where OK to good. However the room we were treated and the massages table were really getting outdated. Also we had to keep our own underwear on which of course is now ruined with oil. Every where else you get the way to small throwaway underwear. They... More

Thank you very much for your very honest opinion, Sir. We truly value your input. Thank you for appreciating our massage. We normally will give batik shorts for men before massage. The disposable paper undies are only for body scrub & wrap session. From now onwards we shall ensure you get disposable for massages. More

Love the ambience! Tucked above the roads, the spa rooms are surrounded by greenery. Had the birds of paradise treatment and it was an enjoyable 3.5 hours. Especially liked the coffee scrub and the facial. Left my skin smooth and feeling squeaky clean. Was not too keen on the massage, probably as I am used to a different style. A... More
