This is a serene and tasteful spa, comparable to the ones you can find in Ubud, Bali, which I consider best in Asia. Would definitely recommend this place.

The details of my booking were worked out by e-mail, which was painless and prompt. When we arrived at the spa, one of the masseurs had had to go home due to a sick child and the spa manager helpfully suggested that my partner and I receive an abbreviated program with massages one after the other. She also threw in... More

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

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
