theSPA, Traders Hotel
The rooftop of Traders Hotel not only sports striking views of the city skyline, it too holds theSPA, a refreshing retreat from the goings on of the bustling city down below.
A streamlined reception greets in its simplicity. Smiling staff speak softly and usher guests to take a seat on the lounge in preparation for their chosen treatment. Cool scented towels, warm tea and a dried date nourish, as forms are filled in and personal requirements are communicated.
An open hallway leads to rooms on the left, a lap pool below and, the magnificent towers viewed through a glass ceiling to the right. Lounge chairs issue a place to relax between treatments and breathe in the vistas.
Self-contained treatment rooms, including changing and shower facilities, have a clean contemporary ambience. They’re sufficiently spacious, but not overwhelmingly large maintaining an intimate, cozy feeling. Simple wooden lines shutter the windows, sandstone coloured ceramics tile the floor and walls and, metallic mosaics form a feature wall. Single orchids and colourful gerberas adorn, alongside warm tea candles and an aromatherapy burner.
The menu encompasses beauty, wellness and relaxation. Facials and body wraps leave the skin refreshed. Massages relax and, manicure, pedicure and waxing services leave you feeling beautiful.
Disposable underwear, sarong wraps, flower bowls and a footbath pre-treatment are welcome details. Check-ins regarding room temperature, comfort level and rolled towels strategically placed under ankles and knees relieving pressure on the lower back, further demonstrate the level of service at theSPA.
We’re here for the Signature Freedom Massage (60 minutes, RM280). It’s customization at its best. Choose from a series of aromatherapy oils or no oil at all. Instruct the therapist as to the level of pressure you prefer and, too personalize the areas you would most like focused on.
Both hubby and I found the experience flawless. From start to finish, service was professional and skilled. Therapists listened to our choices and adapted to our personal preferences. We both left feeling revitalized and rested.
theSPA at Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur is worth making time for.
