Luxury, wellness & spa - Malaysia


Malaysia is the place to be pampered, to indulge yourself, to enjoy some five star luxury


Luxury Malaysia

KL web

Malaysia has a well deserved reputation for luxury hospitality, with some world-class hotels, resorts, restaurants, spas, malls and golf courses.

Kuala Lumpur – which these days has its own Time Out magazine – is a wealthy city which caters superbly for both business and leisure visitors. As a result, the city’s five-star hotel portfolio is exceptional, and the same is true for popular tourist areas such as Penang and Langkawi. The resorts here regularly draw A-list celebrities, and fine dining is commonplace.

Likewise, the country continues to unveil new spas, shopping malls and golf courses. Today’s Malaysia is visited by everyone from UK royalty to the world’s most famous Grand Prix drivers, so it has exceptionally high standards in terms of accommodation, service, dining and leisure.

Some of the global luxury hospitality providers with presence in Malaysia include Four Seasons, Shangri-La, Westin, Ritz-Carlton, Intercontinental, Sheraton, Pan Pacific, Mandarin Oriental, Hilton and Le Meridien.


SPA web

Malaysia makes a natural destination for a wellness break, combining sunshine and relaxing scenery with some industry-leading spas. Asia is seen by many as being the original birthplace of the spa phenomenon.

Malaysia’s unique cultural mix means the country is in a position to offer its visitors the best of all regional spa treatments, from Balinese to Thai and from Ayurvedic to Japanese.
In terms of the spas themselves, you’ll find boutique wellness hideaways, dedicated spa resorts and traditional healing establishments. Menus feature everything from massages, exfoliation, reflexology and masks to body scrubs, aromatherapy, hot soaks and Swedish-influenced treatments.

All Malaysia’s major tourist destinations now have world-class spas. Langkawi is particularly well equipped, with resorts such as the Berjaya Langkawi, the Andaman, the Datai and the Tanjung Rhu enjoying exceptional reputations.

Other areas with superb spas include KL, Penang, Tioman, Pangkor and the resorts around Kota Kinabalu.
