serenity in the jungle
Rest is imperative and UR Spa at The RuMa Hotel and Residences promises to reinvigorate you. Modern science and ancient healing work together here; UR spa developed their signature treatments with Comfort Zone, an Italian science based wellness product manufacturer.
Five signature treatments – UR a Warrior, UR a Goddess, UR Active, UR Vital, and UR Ageless – are designed to supercharge you. UR a Warrior, for starters, combines a full Himalayan salt body scrub with a deep tissue massage and foot therapy, leaving you in a complete state of relaxation. UR Vital on the other hand, evokes the power of fruits with a Scared Nature scrub that harnesses the goodness of papaya and kiwi before delivering a massage on key areas. Getting pampered is one thing, so it’s welcoming to know that health and vitality is part of the deal here.
Shorter touch therapies include a mix of traditional massages, such as the Malay Silat Stretch and the award-winning Dusan Inan Body Therapy. The latter incorporates deep tissue massage techniques honed by the Lotud Dusuns, a local tribe from North Borneo whose women developed the skills and techniques used to help ease the aches of everyday labour. Urutan Malaysia however, features Malay, Chinese and Indian massage techniques, bringing you the best of all worlds.
The spa’s design cues reflect’s the hotel’s colonial-era inspired aesthetics, featuring five treatment rooms, a couple’s suite and a foot therapy lounge. Today’s discerning gent can also get a shave or a cut at London barbers Truefitt & Hill at the spa, stocked with rare single malt whiskies on the drinks trolley.
Post-treatment, guests can take a dip in the 25-meter outdoor pool and order refreshments from Santai Pool Bar, complete with impressive views of Kuala Lumpur.
