Where to find spa in Kuala Lumpur
Most tourists stay in 3 main areas – Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown, and that’s where most of the best spas in KL are located too. What’s more, many are based in 5 star hotels or upmarket shopping centres, making them easy to locate. While a convenient location is a big plus, KL also has some less central spas, which are worth trying out.
While finding a good spa to get yourself pampered is nice, and it is essential to choose a spa with a good track record, if possible, backed up by reputable awards. Positive reviews and testimonials, so long as they are independent, are also worth taking into consideration. After all, you are putting your wellbeing into their hands, so its a case of better safe than sorry.
