The mountain massage after climbing Mt K was greatly anticipated. It was a soothing experience, but was only rather superficial and not particularly helpful. The other reviews here are glowing and appear to be from locals. However, I have had much better massages throughout the world for a much more affordable price and in a far nicer environment.

While Thai & Balinese style massages are staple in most parts of the country, the Borneo native massage is unique to Malaysia & one to experience when visiting. Be sure to check out Jari-Jari & treat yourself to an authentic "Dusun" massage. It was the perfect end to our Sabah experience of exploring pristine beaches & climbing Mount Kinabalu.

Personal Recommendation: The package our group chose was the Dusun Lotud Inan Body Therapy (The Paddy Field Massage) which includes a foot soak and an Award Winning massage therapy. We left feeling refreshed & renewed!

Jari Jari is a small getaway in the middle of a growing city. Its a place where you truly get a bang for your buck. You are greeted with ginger tea and a calming foot bath with petals and once you start your massage, you can be rest assured that you will continue your day feeling rejuvenated and loose. It is not an overly luscious venue, but the therapists conduct themselves very professionally and their attention to detail and nooks and crannies will definitely satisfy your needs for relaxation.
