Monday could be our last honeymoon (without little 17chipmunks). So, we decided to go for a body massage. We remembered previously we enjoyed at the Urban Retreat Spa somewhere in March. Thus, we decided to return. This time, the feeling was “different”.
Upon arrival, we were asked what could they do for us. I immediately asked do they have couple package (which we did last round). We were then shown the different prices – buddies deal (aromatherapy): RM258 for 90 minute and RM289 for 120 minute. We decided to go for the 2 hour session.
Unlike the previous round, we were not asked the kind of oil we would like to use (since it was aromatherapy massage). We were not given welcome drink as well. The foot wash was so simplistic. We were then led to a room where we had our massage. Personally, my massage was really below expectation – in the sense, the masseur was getting in and out of the room so frequent that I find it disruptive (for hubby, there wasn’t this issue). In addition, I was craving for head and shoulder massage a lot, but it came out to be disappointing. Nevertheless, one plus point is that they maintained their silence (unlike the boutique massage parlours in SS2 where the Chinese masseurs will be chit chatting).
After the massage session, we were given ginger tea. Then, at the counter, I was curious of the price for a single person 2 hours session, and found it was merely RM139 (under the midday promotions – 11am to 4pm). This means for two persons it will be RM278! How could this be cheaper than the buddies package? Marketing gone wrong? I asked the cashier, who then calculate over and over again on her calculator. Luckily, we were charged the RM278, instead of RM289. Good thing – they did not charge service tax. Given this is the case, it is more worthy to go for this massage than the Bali Ayu massage at Paradigm Mall.
