It was a memorable Valentine’s Day celebration for us this year. As you all know, we love to do things together – dining, travel, sports and reading. Hence, couple spa is definitely something that we are up to. Spa is a routine whenever we find ourselves landed in Bangkok or Bali; we even had an amazing spa session in Maldives.
However, we have never thought of pampering ourselves with a spa session back in KL until Be Urban Wellness came about and changed our mind. Heck, spa sessions are not restricted to vacations or holidays abroad anymore!
As the lift opened up to BE’s lobby, we were blown away by this unobstructed 360 degree view of KL city. The three storey establishment is a white and airy space with plenty of natural sun light shining through the glass panels. I almost felt like I’m in an oasis of calmness and tranquility.
This is also where you get to languish by an infinity pool or relax in the jacuzzi , enjoy a delicious meal or sip away at that cool coconut water that provides you with plenty of nutrients and goodness. BE does supply fresh coconut water as it is low in calories, cholesterol free, contains more potassium than four bananas, and super hydrating.
It seems like every nook and cranny of the building is beautiful and artsy. We were delighted at the opportunity to explore.
Be Urban Wellness is not just a spa centre, as it prides itself on being a holistic health and wellness centre. Consultants are ever ready to give you advises on your overall wellbeing which involves body, mind and soul. So other than spa treatments, one can also come here for slimming sessions, oxygen chamber, facials, nutrition advise and exercise classes. We love the well-equipped and state of the art looking gym and yoga room.
We were there to try out the Dark Chocolate Indulgence Treatment which includes bath, scrub, wrap and massage session for 140 minutes. It is also rated as the most delicious body treatment by Harper’s Bazaar Spa Awards 2013. We started off with a romantic bath together at this private jacuzzi tub in a beautiful room overlooking the city view.
You are warned! Do not proceed with the treatment with an empty stomach. As the therapist uses those delicious chocolate scrub on my body, the chocolate aroma seeps into every nook and corner of the room. Same torturous experience (just kidding!) happened while we were doing the warm chocolate wrap. I had the urge the lick myself!
It was truly an enjoyable session as the oil massage soothe our tired muscles and provide relaxation. This relaxing massage oil increases circulation and helps the body eliminate lactic acid and other metabolic byproducts for instant muscle pain relief. Our masseurs were very professional as they knew which area to emphasize on and to execute just the right amount of pressure. The session was so good that both of us slept like a baby that night, with chocolate scent from our bodies filled up the whole bed room.
