Be taken to another world of relaxation and beauty with our top therapists and spas.
Rising majestically amidst a lush rainforest in Malaysia, The Chateau is an organic spa and wellness resort, modeled after a 12th-century ‘Haut Koenigsbourg’ castle in Alsace, France.
Boasting 128 elegant rooms and suites, each one is tastefully appointed and fitted with luxurious organic bed and bath linens and room amenities. The award-winning L’assiette fine dining French restaurant prides itself in providing its guests with a mouth-watering organic and non-organic gastronomical cuisine which will excite even the sharpest of palates. La Sante, the jewel in The Chateau’s crown, is the first destination spa in Asia that ingeniously blends European spa expertise with renowned Asian hospitality. The Chateau offers a complete organic experience and advocates a lifestyle approach to personal wellness in a non-regimented way. The Chateau is not only a retreat that embraces holistic ideas and relaxing principles but one that defines the eminent journey towards wellness.
The spa suites are a standout at this St. Regis relaxation haven: each comes equipped with a private Jacuzzi and sauna room. The spa uses ESPA products and technology from Endermologie to achieve lasting results. Consult with your therapist for a massage that’s tailored to you, with a de-stresser, jet-lag reviver, immune booster, Balinese and hot stone massage as options. In addition to scrubs and wraps, the spa offers signature rituals like the 210-minute Heritage Tea Aficionado inspired by the classic St. Regis Afternoon tea. Begin with a rice and green tea exfoliation, followed by a red chai tea bathing ritual designed to improve circulation.
Escape to the peaceful rejuvenating solitude of Spa Village at The Ritz-Carlton.

The various treatments include sensory sound bath, Malay foot steaming and the Awet Permaisuri (Queen’s Royal Indulgence) body treatment with Tok oil and long, rhythmic strokes.
Here, within the sanctuary of the Datai’s own exclusive Spa Villas, you can revive your senses and satisfy your soul with a nurturing spa ritual. Embracing Eastern philosophy, the spa rituals at The Datai are influenced by healing traditions from countries such as Bali, India and Tibet. Experience stimulating body polishes, romantic bathing ceremonies, rejuvenating beauty rituals and therapeutic massages, all designed to pamper and restore lost vitality.
At the spa you can choose from an extensive variety of health and beauty enhancing rituals based on the holistic principles of aromatherapy, Ayurveda and herbalism.
