i have had my fair share of massages, all over the South East Asia. i even took some lessons myself before.
2 of my best friends all went there and loved it, so i wanted to check it out.
the manager, Ms. Keiko booked me and my BF the session. we were greeted with a lovely cold towel and welcome cold drink, it's hard to tell what's in the drink but loved it.
she checked with us where we'd like to focus more or where not to; then showed us to the room.
in the meanwhile, the staff WASHED our feet, not just wiped, WASHED!!!
our private room is already cold with A/C, has bathroom in the room, and it has a bathtub!!! (didn't use it but quite surprised to see it!!!)
the light is turned low, MUSIC is soft (yep, another surprise!!!), room smells nice.
i forgot to mentoin that we get to choose the oil we want to use on us seperately form 6 kinds. i really like that part. i think they use a local famous brand but i forgot the name.
massage was good, no shockings or twisted arms or anything you might encounter sometimes... :D
then after, we had a cup of warm tea to rest and chat a bit with the manager when we were out back in the lobby. the lobby is spacious, so feeling very comfortable to hang around too.
all in all, the experience is awesome, totally love the japanese style (in my view) based spa. no wonder my friends kept going back!!! (and me too now!!!) :D
