Staff was friendly and made sure comfort was a priority. Absolutely loved the entire experience from the moment I stepped in. From the ambience to the massage itself, could not complain a single bit. Best thing to do before rushing off to the airport which is 2 minutes away!

Perfect. Friendly and polite staff. Very generous 'greeting' serving hot ginger tea as welcoming drink and mini foot bath/soak before the massage. General ambience just great and music not tacky. The therapists had the strength, the technique and the accuracy! Just really difficult to fault. Sam and I came out relaxed but also energised. My mum frequents there and eventhough I only go once a year they cared to give us a similar loyalty discount. It's been a favourite place for massage for years now and the quality of service and spa treatments has been consistently PERFECT.

Whenever you go on an overseas holiday the first thing you think about is relaxation. And when you think about massage, you want to be transported into an amazing spa location with great vibes and a killer massage treatment all for a good price.

And the moment I stepped into Jari-Jari, that was exactly how I felt. You wouldnt expect to find a spa of this quality in this hidden mall location, but trust me from a travellers word to another, that this is a place you MUST visit when you come to KK.

Their prize Dusun Lotud Inan massage was fantastic - hit every spot you hope a good massage would do and just leaves you feeling sensational.

The only shame is that they do not have other Jari Jari outlets that I can visit!

But nonetheless, definitely a hidden treasure worth discovering.

This spa is located inside an almost empty, rundown mall, but don't freak out yet, just walk up to 2nd floor and you will find this nice little spa, a friendly english speaking Japanese lady at the reception. Treatment price is really cheap if you compare to other "hotel's spa", you can have 2 hours treatment here while the price can only afford for 1 hr massage in the hotel i stay. We hire a cab from our hotel which charge RM15 and we have a long 2 hrs treatment started with a foot bath and foot rub, than a full body massage inside a nicely decorated couple room, We have good massage that day!

Not easy to find. Pleasant reception staff. Relaxing foot soak and foot massage before the full massage begins. A great massage, different in some ways to what we are used to. Very professional and thoroughly enjoyable massage. Recomend
