UR Kuala Lumpur
by LUXE City Guides
Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre
Entrust your bits to KL’s A-team of top plastic surgeons and aesthetic specialists, who nip, tuck, fill and Botox without batting an eyelid. They also offer help with hair loss and health concerns around aging; if you’re seeking the fountain of eternal youth, this is a good place to start.
Energy Day Spa
Clue’s in the name, Jane... Energy Day Spa will reboot you, with help from swish Swiss products and a fleet of nimble-knuckled masseuses, on hand (literally) to help with everything from ear candling and Pilates to Reiki + lymphatic detox. Styling is serene and contemporary: wafting white fabrics a-go-go.
Fitness & Yoga
Wanna feel FLY? Don your Lycra and get your core sculpted to perfection with these fun, muscle-busting sweat sessions, complete with bikes, beats, neon lights and the kind of crowd you wouldn’t mind bumping into at a nightclub.
Tresses in tropical heat = help! If you’re in possession of deplorably frazzled locks, take them to this soothing salon for instant de-frizzification. Goldilocks, in particular, rave about the handy colour technicians and their Midas-touch treatments...
Wrap yourself in a batik sarong for an aromatherapy rub, calming Pevonia facial, slick mani/pedi or a pre-flight preen (including handy airport transfers), plus plenty of spoils for the little wrigglers.
Five-star bells n' whistles retreat with tropical private gardens and pools. Therapeutic rubs, vibrating sensory sound bath and the Royal Malay couple's treatment combining massage, facial, scrub, herbal bath and body steam. If that don't up the romance ante, you might consider ditching him.
Fuzzier than a wombat’s armpit? Gals n’ guys can banish the bush at this hot little strip joint. This is no one-strip pony: there’s a choice of soft or hard wax, an array of hair-free looks to choose from, and a range of take-home pre- and post-wax products. Rrripper!
Fitness & Yoga
Perfect your sun salutations and downward dog in this green, serene bungalow compound, set in a surprisingly tranquil patch of KL. Try Buteyko breath workshops, integrative yoga, yin yoga and a host of other classes; you can also sign up for 21-day (or shorter) courses. Ohmmm...
