“Very good massage”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

I went on the recommendation of Tripadvisor and there are no regrets. For the Christmas promotion, the firm is having a 2-hour body and foot massage for MR 150. It helps that the owner speaks English. The therapists are very skilful.

“Beyond expectation..great spa experience”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

Was on holiday in Kota Kinabalu with my friends, we were recommended by some other travelers to visit South Sea Sanctuary Spa. They were saying they had the best massage. We were happy to hear that and looking forward to it. I must say, we were surprised by the soothing interior design and the body treatment was awesome. Highly recommended to other travelers to spend some soothing time at this lovely place. Cheers

“Great Spa in Kota Kinabalu!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

I heard a lot of hype about this award winning spa, so I took my wife to try the Couple's Spa Package and we were truly impressed. It included a foot and body massage, body scrub and body wrap. My wife has sensitive skin after sunburn and she was recommended to use the virgin coconut oil. She loved it so much we bought a bottle back home. The service was good, the therapists were well trained and the place was clean. Will return in future.
