[Lifestyle] Swedish Thai Massage @ Urban Retreat Spa, The Curve

If you're thinking of going somewhere relaxing before going to have meatballs as dinner in IKEA, I recommend you to go for body massage or therapy at Urban Retreat Spa @ The Curve!


Urban Retreat Spa provides a comforting, yet stimulating, atmosphere in which customers are able to relax both their body and mindreconnecting their daily lives to their true purpose through massage.

Urban Retreat Spa is a Multiple Award Winning Spa which is located inside the Curve Shopping Mall (Opposite IKEA Damansara). It was said to be a dependable destination in which people can always come to rejuvenate their energies and escape from the stresses of work. This location is so ideal that you can just visit them after your work, and then go for shopping or dining after relaxing from the therapy massage here.

So is the massages and therapy in Urban Retreat Spa really that good? Let's find it out!

I was invited by them to try out and review their Swedish Thai Massage which worth RM169 for 90 minutes. After I've confirmed my reservation through email with them, the system will automatically send a confirmed reservation details through your email. This way you have no excuses to say that you've forgotten when is your reservation date and time!


When I first entered the store, all I smell is Lemon Grass (tell me if I'm wrong with the scent!). It is very relaxing, and I was greet by the workers like a VIP and was asked to wait at the lounge for my turn.


Not forgetting to mention about the phone call customer service! I actually have to be late on the day and I called to inform them that I wanted to postpone for another half an hour. The cashier who answered the call talked super nicely and her respond to my request is very, very kind and humble. 

Left: The long walk way with many rooms for body massage by the side and washrooms at the end.
Right: Me in the room where I did my massage at.

Another thing is, in each of your visit, you will be assigned to a worker who will serve you from the beginning till the end. She will bring you to the room, massage for you, and wait for you at the waiting lounge until you come out from the room and serve you a cup of ginger tea by herself.

So after I've waited for my turn, I was greet and invited by a Thai girl (I've forgotten her name) and was asked to change into a pair of slippers. She then brought me to have a foot wash.


The foot wash is so gentle and comfortable. After the wash, I was brought to the room. A disposable panty, hair net and towels was given and I was asked to wear only these.


The entrance of the room was just covered by curtains but it's safe to change in the room as the workers will ask if you're done changing before they open the curtains. And don't worry, they will use the towels provided to cover up your naked body during the massage (Thai girls are also shy to see you in naked okay XD). And you can just relax yourself and take a nap with the soothing music around in a darker room during the massage.


Swedish Thai Massage

This massage mainly helps to release stress, lower blood pressure, loosen tight muscles and stimulate blood circulation.

The whole process starts from back of the legs, back, front of the legs, thighs and to head, neck and shoulder. It was so comfortable and the beginning, and after that, some part was quite painful. The pains are mostly on my tight knots or muscles, especially my shoulder!

In overall, the painfulness are still acceptable for me, means she still able to massage every parts of my body even though it's painful. To be honest, I felt that those pain feeling makes me feel even satisfied and 'syok' after my massage! My favourite part is when she put a hot towel on my neck and shoulder before she starts to massage my head, neck and shoulder!

Do note that different health condition might have different feeling towards the massage. It might be very painful throughout the whole process for you.

After the massage, like I said, this Thai girl waited for me to come out and serve me a cup of ginger tea! Like, even how long I stay in my room, she will wait for me outside for how long!


So, to answer my question "is the massages and therapy in Urban Retreat Spa really that good?" I would say YES! Besides their awesome customer services, I really felt so relieved and satisfied just after one massage! Honestly, I have the urge to sign up their packages, but too bad I can't do it at that moment because I have to back to my hometown for a month for my sem break first!

Now, Urban Retreat Spa has become my first choice to think of going for their body massage! I've already recommend a few of my close friends to pay them a visit already! So what about you? ;)
