The words 'world class' sometimes roll off the keyboard a little bit too easily when writing a review on anything and indeed the impact is lessened by repetitive overuse of the term.
The Regalodge Hotel in Ipoh is home to the Regal Spa where you can enjoy a revitalising body massage and scrub followed by a hot jacuzzi or relax in the steam or sauna rooms.
Knowing that the Pangkor Laut Resort has been frequented by an endless list of jet setting A-list celebrities fleeing the glare of the relentless paparazzi, it is not difficult to imagine a world class spa within a world class resort on a private island retreat.
The Samsara Signature Massage combines the best of Balinese and Thai massage technique using a choice of essential oils to suit your mood with the aim of total relaxation of body and mind.
The Samsara Spa located at the Swiss-Garden Golf Resort and Spa Damai Laut (in Lumut) on the western coast of Perak offers the opportunity to experience traditional Balinese massage and body treatments in a luxurious coastal environment.
It is recommended you seek an appointment with one of the consultants of the Spa Village at Pangkor Laut upon arrival at the resort to gain optimum results from the many first class spa and treatment experiences on offer.

These Hollywood types take their pampering seriously and the award winning Spa Village at Pangkor Laut offer professional programmes aimed at rejuvenating, detoxifying, relaxing and reducing stress with an emphasis on longevity.
This is a journalistic conundrum that can only be undone by conservatively using the term when it is realistically justified and the Perak spa industry is host to two such genuine contenders of this accolade.
So it would appear the Banjaran is off to a flying start and in my opinion this will gain momentum in the coming months and years until a worldwide consensus has been confirmed that it truly does deserve the title of a World Class Spa.
It does not stop there as the Banjaran has already scooped a further 2 awards and it has only been open for two months since September 2010 (at time of writing this article).
However it has already achieved 'top ten in Asia Spa Experience' according to Spa Asia 2010 and it has been awarded 2 prestigious spa awards in the Harper’s Bazaar Spa Awards 2010.
Pangkor Laut is an established world class resort with spa to match whereas the Banjaran Hot Spring Retreat is the new kid on the block when it comes to assessing status.
JC Beauty And Fitness Spa
The JC Beauty and Fitness Spa is an independently owned and managed spa located on Jalan Medan Ipoh 6, Bandar Baru Medan Ipoh.
They specialise in offering steam baths, herb baths, spa baths and salt baths to relax and rejuvenate their many customers.
Another unusual practice adopted here is that of ear candling which is an holistic treatment to aid in relaxation and detoxification and is reputed to be beneficial to the ears, nose and throat.
