Get ready to fall in love at first sight.
We’re sure that you’ve heard or seen this wonderful space on social media by now. Located in the heart of KL city at the Linc KL, Lax. Retreat is designed as a safe space dedicated to women, by women. Lax. is Malaysia’s first self-care subscription brand that just opened its doors on the 6th of March 2021. While images and videos of the picture-perfect interior have won the hearts of many, have you made the plunge to visit and book yourself an appointment? Here’s what you need to know.
The founders and sisters, Mardhiah and Labiba Nadwa Latiff wanted to create a women-only spa for extreme relaxation time with customisable services available for their nails, facials, and body treatments.
“Lax. is the new-age wellness club for the woman who prioritises her self-worth through indulgent pampering with girlfriends, looking to find a glimmer of peace amongst a busy lifestyle beyond the four walls”Mardhiah Latiff, co-founder of Lax.
With femininity in mind, the space designed by Studio Kanta features a monochrome dream of soft coral hues and splashes of mint green shades, with romantic curved accents at every corner. As you enter, a manicure bar is set up at the side with a pink marble top and plush velvet seatings. Walk further and you’ll spot a cosy lounge area, where you and your friends get to enjoy drinks before your appointment. Peep through the sheer curtains, and you’ll be greeted to the spacious pedicure area, equipped with rattan day beds, against lush pink walls with abstract female figures.
With an idea in mind to merge the tranquillity of the space and the instant effect of relaxation, it’s clear that their intentions are to bring the greatest affordable luxury. What’s great about it is your input to make your overall experience completely designed for you. From choosing your combination of oils and scrubs, picking or plugging in your playlist when working on your facials or massages, and lastly, picking your desired diffuser scent to give you that serene finish. You’ll find powerhouse beauty favourites with OPI, Orly, IS Clinical and Biossential products used in the treatments.
When you do make your way there to try their facials or massage services, you’ll notice a light orb situated outside every facial and treatment rooms, and the reason behind it makes sense.
Mardhiah shared, “We have been very careful about translating our customer’s journey into physical elements, and with this feature, our customers can turn the light orbs on as a way to notify our staff that they can enter, to avoid the awkward waiting and check-ins before entering.”
If Lax sounds like a place you’d want to consider as your regular go-to spot, you can be a part of the exclusive membership programme to indulge in a month or year-round privileges at RM39 per month or RM399 per year.
