Review : Sanctuary Asia Spa @d’Tempat Country Club, Seremban

As a Full Time Working Mom, to have a balance lifestyle between work, home and children can be quite stressful. I tend to look for ways to de-stress or occasional self pampering session option like Spa.

Recently, I chanced upon Sanctuary Asia Spa at d’Tempat Country Club, Seremban. Thus, I had a wonderful spa experience which I would like to share here.

I was served by Lindri who then explained the types of therapy and package available here.

On going promotion for month of December. Club members will get to enjoy more discount. Best kan?

Above are the available treatments and prices.

Thus, I took up the 3 hours package treatment. Read on for more details.

The reception area and the corridor leading to rooms are spacious and brightly lit.

Sanctuary Asia Spa, is designed with contemporary style and subtle touch of Balinese to Rejuvenate, Retreat and Relieve your senses.

I was also told that, these are the products used during the therapy; massage.
Avocado & Milk, were among the favorite massaging cream.

The techniques used at the Sanctuary Asia Spa include acupressure, skin rolling and flicking, firm and gentle stroking, percussion and application of essential oils and also the use of stone massage. The combination of manual therapy and aromatherapy encourages one not only to relax, but to also help loosen the facial restrictions, stimulate the lymphatic system and promote the flow of blood and qi.

Hall for Foot Massage.

But for some who prefers some privacy, rooms are also available for Foot Massage too.

Whilst the Waiting Room is spacious and relaxing.

There are total of 5 individual rooms. Rooms are equipped with sauna, bath tub, shower room, wash basin, cupboard and 1 unit of bed for massage.

Above is the room for 2. Total units available here are 2 rooms. Ideal for couples. The difference between a single and couple room is that, room is more spacious and it comes with Jacuzzi. Apart from that, the room look so luxurious!

I was arranged to have my session in this room. The room has a peaceful and relaxing ambiance. Plus points to the soothing music and calming essential oil. Furthermore the masseur was attentive , which made me feel more comfortable to begin the session.

It started off with Foot Bath.

Then, proceeded to Sauna for a good sweat out.

A sauna’s heat also helps to open your pores, which promotes sweating and cleanses your skin. The high temperatures promotes blood flow and circulation, which can make you feel energized after a sauna.

This session lasted about 30 minutes. However if you feel uneasy, you can opt for a shorter duration.

I was attended by Maya, who is friendly and skillful. She is from Indonesia and has several years of working experience as a masseur. She commented that I have very stiff shoulder. What I like most is that, not much of talking or chit chatting. Just relax yourself and enjoy the whole session. I literally fall asleep.

The above session covers; Balinese Aromatherapy Massage, Balinese Green Tea Scrub, then followed by Yogurt Conditioning.

I skipped the Traditional Balinese Facial because I wanted more on massage 😀

After all the above, I then continued with Milk & Flower  bath in a tub of warm water. Frangipani flower is widely use in Bali. It is Bali’s signature flower and it smells nice too.

I was offered with this spa salt. Put small amount of spa salt on wet body and rub gently in circular motion. Rinse off with clean water. This fine spa salt is to nourish and moisturize during exfoliating for smooth,clean and healthy skin.

Guests will also served with a cuppa warm Ginger Tea after the session end.

I love this pampering session very much. Do bring along your loved ones who really deserves a good pampering session and I assured that she’ll really appreciate your effort. 🙂

Last but not least, this will be the highlight of this post.
