Mandara Spa, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Transcend. Transform. Trust the moment.
Celestial music, grand spherical ceilings and delicate floral wall patterns set the scene for Mandara Spa at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur. Once inside, you’re gently ushered to the lounge and nurtured with cool scented towels and chilled ginger tea. Influenced by traditional health and beauty routines from Indonesia, Thailand and Hawaii, a range of treatments include massage, scrubs and wraps, facials, foot and hand care, herbal steam showers and aromatherapy baths. A two page menu of pampering, the single treatments and packages of Mandara sing harmonies of mental repose.
With time set aside for a two hour treatment, I booked in for a facial and a Balinese massage. The Elemis Skin Specific Facial sounded just what I needed to perk up my complexion after an extended working week combined with too little sleep. This deep cleansing facial claims to “combine the power of absolutes with true premium grade essential oils, to treat the skin at the deepest level.” The skin is stimulated and oxygenated with massage movements drawn from this region of Asia, not only leaving you with glowing skin but a balance of body and mind too.
A choice of three facials is on the menu: the Herbal Lavender Repair ideal to heal and repair congested oily skin; the Exotic Cream Moisture Dew especially formulated for hydrating dry skin and; the Fruit Active Glow for normal skin types in preparation for a big occasion. This third treatment, the one I chose, supposedly brings vitality and lift to dull and lifeless skin.
I was surprised upon entry to the treatment room with glass walls lined with gardens, and an outdoor shower and bath. Heaven! In the middle of the city! Completely unexpected, the indoor outdoor treatment space already began bringing peace to my mind even before the therapist began working her magic.
The Balinese Massage followed by the facial did wonders in seducing my mind and body into a state of calm and reawakening. The therapists are clearly highly trained and professional in every manner.
A cool drink and product recommendation based on my skin type and goals ended my session. For those, however, blessed with the luxury of time, a Jacuzzi, sauna and relaxation lounge await.
