Not all mothers are perfect, but they all share a common goal: to provide the best for their children. Not only did they endure the suffering of bearing a child (us!) for over nine months, they’ve also had the lifelong burden of constantly worrying about our wellbeing. That’s right, pick up that phone and give her a call right now. Or you could also give her a treat this coming Mother’s Day — that’s on the 12th of May — and book her a session at one of these hotel spas in KL.
After all, there’s no better way to show how much you love the dear old matriarch than by pampering her silly and easing those knots in her muscles. Don’t let her be the one to fuss over things. Instead, let her be the one who is being fussed upon. These hotel spas in KL will be able to give her a sense of relaxation like no other, and the luxurious settings are a big plus. You could also treat yourself and have a mother-child spa bonding session if that’s what you like.
Using luxurious spa products from Kerstin Florian, The Spa & Gym at the Hilton KL hotel will guarantee that this spa indulgence will leave anyone with the most pampered skin ever. With a location as central as this, it is the perfect city escape for anyone. Bonus points? The Spa & Gym won the Best Health & Wellness Spa in Malaysia in the 2018 Haute Grandeur Global Awards. Try out a wide array of body, face, and massage treatments that feature a blend of traditional styles and ingredients.
With its hushed settings and elegantly minimal aesthetic, you would have never guessed that Starhill Spa by Spa Village was located within a shopping mall. Yet, this JW Marriott in-house spa is precisely the hidden gem you’d want to bring mom to. Let her indulge in the power of scent, as the spa allows guests to mix and match their preferred classic massage style — Malay, Swedish, Thai, Balinese, Lomi Lomi, or custom — with a choice of enhancement. The treatment concludes with a Spa Village aromatic oil, which includes 10 choices depending guests’ preferences.
There’s a whole host of treatments available at The Spa in Mandarin Oriental KL, but perhaps what would be perfect for mom is the spa’s indulgent anti-aging facials using iconic French brand Biologique Recherche. Otherwise, try out any of the spa’s many personalised treatments, or treat mom to the 80-minute Digital Wellness Retreat as a hint that she’s been playing one too many Candy Crush levels.
Let mom feel like a royal Malay queen with one of The Ritz-Carlton KL’s many traditional Malay spa treatments, with one of them actually named the Awet Permaisuri — the Queen’s Royal Indulgence — body treatment. This gorgeous spa in the city also offers some of the world’s best therapies that are a blend of the diverse traditional healing practices of this region. Natural local ingredients are also prioritised here.
Remember the days when you were much younger and your mother used to bathe you? She would scrub and scrub your skin until there were no visible dead skin cells. Now think about how long it has been since she had anyone do that for her? Well, you’ll be glad to know that she can experience that in a luxury hammam at the So SPA in Sofitel KL Damansara. If that’s not her thing, So SPA offers plenty of other treatments as well, including steam therapy or a Malay, Indian, or Chinese massage infused with French expertise.
First, treat mom to a spot of afternoon tea at one of the best places to do so: The St. Regis KL hotel. Next, surprise her with more afternoon indulgence at the tranquil Iridium Spa. The spa uses an all-natural face and body care range — Espa — that not only nourishes the skin but is also great for the environment. Try out a bespoke facial or the spa’s non-invasive Endermologie treatment that focuses on anti-aging, detoxification, silhouette reshaping and body contouring. Your matriarch will emerge a completely new person post-treatment.
Treat mom to one of the newest hotel spas in the city: UR Spa in The RuMa Hotel and Residences. This gorgeous, sunlit spa is located on the sixth floor of the hotel and features a wide range of genderless treatments suited to just about anyone and everyone. But first, all treatments begin with a Tranquility welcome ritual. This encompasses a botanical inhalation to decompress and relax, followed by a Kabat stretch to prepare your mind and body for the treatments ahead. The spa champions using modern science with ancient healing therapies, which are evident in the Core Therapies. Working together with skincare brand Comfort Zone that utilises science-based conscious formulas, these treatments feature traditional healing movements fused with modern skincare products.
